Glee I love you, but what’s with Artie

From the beginning I have watched Glee.

An abled-bodied playing disabled characters?abledsomeone in the glee club pushing him in his chair much of the show suggests he is unable. Frankly if someone was that unable in our society they would be in a motorized chair not playing the “victim” who is “helpless” and requires support just to get throughout their school day. They had one character on there that had Downs syndrome who again they made helpless by having her ask for money to buy a cupcake…why couldn’t she be the one offering the money? But know, the helpless card yet again – it annoys me. what is your thoughts on  the fact that, the character of Artie why not a chair user for real, someone who’s really in a chair, like I mean someone who uses a wheelchair would be more comfortable moving about the show. Like, but seriouslylike it, but why is Artie in a wheelchair, I understand in accordance to the plot that it was a car accident. I understand the potential need for someone with a disability in the show!

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
