Thread: wheelchair wannabes

  1. #21
    Ugh, now I have to watch it out of curiosity. I was stunned for years when I found these ppl existed. Interesting that there seem to be fewer outbreaks nowdays. When I was a mod it seemed like bees to honey, they seemed to be everywhere.

    CC is less freaky Now!

    Fettishes just are perplexing , Some are really Gross

    It is creepy. I'm open minded about fetishes and people knowing there were born the wrong gender from a very early age. Cross dressing? Who cares.
    But THIS is revolting.
    Is it like faking you have cancer for pity?
    I suppose they want bladder, bowel and sex function though.
    Some people might find it harmless, but it is deception if they go in public and take hc spots in parking and seating venues.

    The movie was very strange, but I did not get the feeling that these faker's were doing it for sympathy. Conversely, they seemed to feel more empowered when they were using their arsenal of rehab equipment. There is a scene in the move where the female protagonist announces she is going to use her chair in public for the first time. She sees it as liberating, and says "now she can do anything." Bizzare, totally bizzare. You would have choked watching the "vent dependent" quad who then stands up, rips off his tracheal tubing, folds the wheelchair and leaves when confronting what he thinks is a real crip. I will never understand these people. I am old enough that I remember when schools had wheelchair sensitivity training and a bunch of AB teenagers would use a wheelchair for an afternoon. I always thought it a joke because until you have urine running into your socks for lack of accessible facilities you could never "get it."

    This condition is a mental illness..if you watch the movie, they are clearly desperate to be disabled due to deeply rooted and painful psychological issues.(to the point where they actually pay for surgeries or self inflict sci)

    In the case of the woman, it was guilt from causing a crash and or need for her mother's love and approval..which she apparently never got..whatever the case ..a wannabe does not illicit any anger, contempt or judgement from me..they don't cause my disability to exist, they do not make my life worse, and they do not hurt me in any way. Other than the possibility they may be taking up a space I need, (which is far less than those who do not have this disorder and are just inconsiderate or lazy) they may actually help us as they are in public in chairs and as mentioned in the "advocacy thread" that we should just be out in public and show the world we exist...the more crips in public using ramps and demanding accessibility the better! lol.


    Now a "faker" correct me if I am wrong is a different animal, they are the ones who come here and pretend to be disabled for reasons other than the psychological phenomenon of wanting to be or feeling as if they are a disabled person in a ab body i.e. a "wannabe". The deceive and trick and do harm as it seems they fake for their entertainment..

    If some chick needs to be a wheelchair in order to feel "normal"..I am fine with that. I am fine with them getting help for their disorder as well..as that is really what they need.

    OMG, Cass! What about Chantal (the one who had a baby dying??) That was my first entry to cyber world and very first introduction to a cuckoo pretender. Then Matt, Genie, Eve, Sisyphus...too many to name! They tend to have very dramatic stories, sorry but we have enough daily drama to take on fakers bs drama. Pretenders are a nuisance, yes they are mentally ill and many should be hospitalized.

    Over the past year, in SC three or four fakers of cancer and other medical conditions have been caught and prosecuted because they were scamming charitable people. One was smooth enough to mount a TV begathon to get money for surgery. I think she got about $140k. The psychos are weird but these people are real scum. One can only imagine the impact on charitable giving.
