    Thank you for your article regarding “cripple porn”. I read it in an older version of New Mobility magazine (2014). My wife and I are planning a Vegas trip. It is strange how some view others by their accomplishments more if they are disabled. There is a point where supporting the disabled becomes something of an obsession with some individuals. I see clearly what others cannot seem to grasp. Most disabled persons just want to be seen as everyone else on the planet. Keep your adoration to a minimum. Yeah! I may have to work harder than most people in my situation, but I could always do more….. so can the able-bodied folks who want to get on a soapbox. Your article may be shocking to some. It was common sense to me. Thanks again!
