Please use people first language. Putting people before the disability shows respect. The teenage girl is a wheelchair user, she is not bound to her wheelchair. Thank you! This listed website is an excellent source of people first examples. http://disabilityisnatural.com/explore/people-first-language

Personally, I thought people in wheelchairs were bound to their wheelchairs. Oversensitivity will get your nowhere.

@Jennifer;
Please go away with that sensitivity crap. Handicapped people don’t want or need your BS.

So you are saying we should not say “The Idiot Jennifer makes a stupid point” instead say ” Jennifer the idiot makes a stupid point”

Well how about that! Just a few days ago that same cab #136 was observed on CoCo Blvd cutting lanes, tailgating and just being a traffic jerk. Be interesting to see how this one plays out…
