Usually I don't care for the Kardashians or any of that pop culture nonsense, but moving along. Long story short, Kylie Jenner modeled for a few provocative pictures in a magazine, and in a couple she was posed sitting in a wheelchair. Apparently this offends people with disabilities because it is glamorizing something that is not so glamorous for them. Here is one article among the five million you can likely find telling the same story.

Thoughts? Do you think legitimately disabled people are right to be offended? Do you think they're being overly sensitive in a society that loves hyper-dramatizing alleged racism, sexism, and appropriation?

Are they also offended by all of the hentai/porn of disabled people?

*yawns* what else is new.

The only thing the offends me is the fact that her lips are bigger than my future.

Don't start. Next they'll be banning specific types of porn like England.

If I cared enough to be offended , I would be. I have always hated the Kardashians, I see no reason to stop here. They're not the rich you approve of, they're the spoiled, non-hardworking kind born into it . This was loooong before Bruce Jenner coming out as Caitlyn (whom if I compared to , oh say Andrea James when Cait speaks, etc., is faintly humourous to me for some reason.)

On the subject of handicap people being offended, ofc I could see that its intended to shock people and get attention. From a PR perspective, the axiom, "no such thing as bad press" for the attention ho is true for these kinds of people. They are acutely aware that the standard rules that apply to everyone else do not apply to them, because of their celebrity status. One example of this that comes to mind is Brian Warner, a.k.a. Marilyn Manson, who does appalling shit to shock routinely to sell records, and his female counterpart, Lady GaGa (:lol:), (though unlike the Kardashians they might have some creative ability to mitigate a true comparison) In short, I hate the Kardashians, I think they're rich, pampered, soul-sucking scum and a blight on pop culture, (to the point they are representative of all thats wrong with pop culture, which might be why you hate it.

Now I don't do why I'm up, now if you'll excuse me, I'm out.~

When I was younger, things like this might have bothered me a little bit . . . but . . . honestly, now days with the ongoing fetish to make stupid people famous....

As someone, presently unemployed, I can think of better things to piss my time away on...

Better not show these people Katawa Shoujo. They'll begin frothing at the mouth and die instantly of a stress-induced heart attack.

I think they have a right to express their opinions and be offended, but whatever.
