    It’s not safe. This needs to stop. Why does our society cater to the craziest among us?

    I agree. Unfortunately, they deem people like this marginalized and it’s looked down upon to incorporate common sense even though it will make a very small minority of the population upset.

    People with personality disorders making silly demands deserve to be marginalized. Common sense should be respected again.

    I’m really not a fan of litigious solutions but anyone who authorized an emotional support pit bull that led to the mauling of a small child needs to be roasted in a court of law.

    Ya I don’t really understand, so these people who acknowledge that they don’t need it but still ask, so they’re just casually asking you to commit fraud?

    If I was a PCP I’d tell them off, fire them from practice, do whatever I could.

    I’m hardly disagreeing. We’re in total agreement. It’s absolutely ridiculous.

    Today it was a middle aged man who wants a letter because he would like to get a dog and he heard that if he gets a letter from an MD they cannot ask him questions and cannot charge him to take the dog on the train.

    No attempt to even pretend there was an emotional need.  Does not even have a pet currently.  Purely trying to game the system.

    And I told him so.  Politely of course 🙂

    I’ve got to respect the openness instead of pretending.

    How do people think this is appropriate? It would be like asking a lawyer to forge a document or for your accountant to fudge your numbers. They’re literally asking their professional to commit fraud

    True and he did back down as soon as I said it was inappropriate.

    What y’all really railing against is the natural consequences of [philosophical] liberalism.
