All I Wanna Say Is That…

… they don't really care about us. Here's the prison version of the video.

A friend of mine is in a wheelchair and as we were talking last week I noticed that the name of the company that made the chair is Invacare. I gasped a little because I immediately thought of ‘invalid care’. Isn’t that what I am supposed to think? Isn’t that problematic?


The word invalid strikes me as immediately negative. I mean, it’s ‘in valid’. There’s nothing helpful about using that word, especially since the people using their products are the ones indicated by it. Isn’t this simple?
