Truth Or Porn?

I always try to make a conscious effort to tell the truth but be as positive as possible. However I’m not perfect and my intention ends up being just that, an intention rather than an action.

An all too common problem faced by the disability community is inspirational porn.

If you’re not familiar with inspirational porn let me enlighten you inspirational porn is using someone’s disability to make the non-disabled feel better about themselves or trivializing a person’s disability.

The other day I posted a picture on my Facebook page that I’ve shared before because I thought it was an interesting take on Cerebral Palsy. But after I posted it I had second thoughts.

“Is this inspirational porn?”

I agree (with most of the disability community I think) that inspirational porn must end AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I understand the intention in most cases but the execution is just so far off that the whole thing needs to end.

We’re more alike than we are different than our able bodied counterparts it’s time to be taken off the pedestal we’ve been put on and stop being objectified to make others feel better about themselves.

What do you think, are these images truth, or porn (or both)?
