freedom not confinement
Please amend this article and delete the term confinement, which is unacceptable and therefore discredits this entire website. Editors should consult a publication manual (MLA, APA, Chicago) and adhere to accepted standards. In this case, it is obvious that a wheelchair represents freedom to a user - the very opposite of confinement. This patronizing attitude is what disables people, more than their impairments.

Discredits this entire website? gimme a break. the whole point is to show that his inability to walk -- another word for confinement to a wheelchair - does NOT limit his freedom. IN this context the word is just fine, apt and is used to make a point. As a parent of a special needs child I am sensitive to language but all too often find the lengths people go to use p;olitical correct language - and expect/demand others to do the same -- is absurd.

Such an amazing video! I would suggest changing the tagline by deleting the word "confinement." Even he said in the video he doesn't like the terminology "in" a wheelchair, instead he uses the preposition "on." I had a college professor who uses a wheelchair and who taught me not to use the phrase "in a wheelchair" and instead to say a person who "uses a wheelchair" because that's honestly a more realistic (not to mention more politically correct) way of describing it.
