[personal profile] janice_lester: meta: Give sexy actors sexy wheelchairs!

This is about wheels, (mostly) white (mostly) male characters, and how The Powers That Be on TV and film sets seem fated--whether by unpleasant design or mere privileged ignorance--to be forever Getting It Wrong. When they could be getting it oh, so right.

This post talks about media portrayals of characters who use wheelchairs. It is image heavy with some video; there aren't image descriptions for all of the images nor captions on the video.
