Tennis player Esther Vergeer is a beautiful woman. And a talented one. So why is her appearance in ESPN the Magazine's annual Body Issue being called an example of how the magazine has "jumped the shark"?
Because people still can't handle the fact that people with disabilities are, gasp, people!
The Bleacher Report listed Vergeer's appearance in her wheelchair as one of the most "vomit-inspiring images" in the issue.
Said their report:
"She has a beautiful body. No complaints there. But doesn't it feel just a little wrong to be ogling a woman in a wheelchair?"
Oh. We get it. Women in wheelchairs can't be sexy. They're just disabled people, you know.
Unlike every other woman on the planet, they do not want to be desired. That's beneath them, you know. They must focus every moment of their life on being ... wheelchair-bound.
While we're hard-pressed to celebrate the reveal of a bunch of hard-bodied women like it's a major coup for femininity,
