Weird Picture from FB

GraceB's picture

Not a fan of this picture. So she doesn't look like a young, skinny, able-bodied woman, should she feel bad about that? It makes me think of the idea of "becoming disabled," where you embrace your diasabled body and your non-ideal looks, even when society doesn't normally. This image makes being old/having a wheel chair look like an undisirable thing that no one could possibly want.
