The Craziest "Human Rights" Cases

Does a fast food worker have a human right not to wash her hands? (Not because she's allergic to soap or has some sort of a skin condition, but just because she doesn't feel like washing her hands all the time?) What about a surgically mutilated male who believes that he has a human right to meet rape victims face to face, even if the women object such kind of "counseling"?

In his interview with Nick Vandergragt, Ezra Levant brings those two cases as example of what counts as "human rights" violation nowadays, how those cases are handled, who is in charge of making the decision and how mere hurt feelings could triumph over common sense and over the rights of others.
