    Don't worry, I meant it as comic relief.
    Played with bombs- No SCI, Brain Damage enough that I require a chair and a caregiver.

    Someone did their research.
    Just a statement from an artist. Over the years Lady Gaga has done some things to try and push the envelope to make our culture more inclusive of minority populations ie immigration, LGBT and HIV and now PWD. Anybody that looks at our society knows us PWD sometimes struggle to be included and noticed. I think Lady Gaga is trying to use her position and her post surgery condition to say 'hey I am in a wheelchair look at me'.

    Society has a way of avoiding looking at us, anybody in a chair who wheels thru Walmart knows this.

    I think you're projecting here. Wishful thinking.

    I wouldn't pretend to know what LG is thinking or what kind of statement she's making or if she's even trying to make a statement. Absent any announcement from her about her condition and, specifically, how it's expanded her awareness of disability issues, her gold-plated wheelchair and Louis Vuitton wheelchairs trivializes disability and reduces it to a cartoon existence. Looking at photos of her gussied up sitting in one-off chairs is likely to strike the average person as yet another collection of props designed to draw attention to her, not her injury let alone us.

    Geez, it's only a frggin wheel chair, not a mystical chariot. Stop dwelling and enjoy what you can, everyone else is. Sometimes Club SCI makes me shake my head.
