Mocking a man with sexual dysfunction

Reporter David Knowles of NY Daily News wrote this lovely article.

I would like to draw your attention to the first line:

“He may not have been able to get an erection, but that didn’t stop a 70-year-old Florida man from standing his ground.”

Mr Knowles, I’d love to hear you explain how erectile dysfunction in any way relates to one’s ability to…well, to do anything, apart from the thing that an erection is typically used for. I’m sure it’s hard enough to live with this affliction, without the added burden of knowing that society was mocking and emasculating one for it.
