Dear Media: Please Stop Saying We Are “Bound to Wheelchairs”

So, to the media outlets who want to do a positive story about a person with a wheelchair, creating a remarkable new enterprise, or simply winning the Nobel prize, please remember to be BOUND by what is the morally and factually correct way to describe an entire group of individuals who are trying to overcome pity, fear, and discrimination. Continuing to use these type of words and descriptions are not helping.
