Meet Chris. He is not a person with disabilities, but nonetheless identifies as one and sits in a wheelchair whenever he can without giving his secret away to the people that know him. On last night’s episode of Showtime’s documentary series 7 Deadly Sins (this week’s sin: envy), Chris shared his story.
“I identify as a guy in a wheelchair,” he said. I feel like I have the wrong body. I feel like I’m supposed to be disabled. What I want my life to be like is what is the detriment of a lot of people’s lives, the worst thing that’s ever happened to them, and I think it would be the best thing that ever happened to me.”
Chris says he has felt this way for as long as he can remember—”deep down these feelings were always there.”
Meet Chris – the biggest asshole in the history of humanity. Sure people who are disabled would give anything to be able to walk, and this asshat can walk just fine. But you think that’s gonna stop him from living his dream as a make believe disabled person? Nope. Well, unless an earthquake comes and he has to run for cover. Then he’ll probably wish he never wished he was disabled.
So we can all agree this guy is just a dooshnozzle right? He obviously wants attention and realizes that people feel bad for the disabled. But he just doesn’t wanna go through the horrific accident that leads to life in a wheelchair, which is kind of the hard part. Well, actually the hard part is not being able to go to the bathroom on y our own, take care of yourself, or drive a car. But besides that he loves the perks of being disabled.
Here’s the thing though – how is this ANY different from someone who is “transgender?” Please, please explain that one. Because if you are someone who thinks that transgender is a real thing that should be accommodated and accepted as normal by the public, then you are a FRAUD if you think this kid is an asshole. He is doing the exact same fucking thing. Is he disabled? Nope. Does he claim that he thinks he’s disabled? Yup. Do we know for sure what is going in on his brain? Nope. That sounds VERY familiar.
Feel free to share your thoughts to keep the conversation going.
