Why not use disabled models, Brazil?

Spot on again, I think I’ll direct you to this blog entry from my friend Chris. It concerns the Rio Paralympics, and the infamous recent airbrushing of photos of actors to make them look disabled. Chris notes that things don’t seem to be going very well, and I must agree. Frankly as a disabled person, I find it pretty insulting that the Brazilians have done this. There must be loads of models with disabilities in Brazil they could have used. It is akin to sticking a bunch of able-bodied musicians in wheelchairs and calling it a paraorchestra. I’d hoped that, after London, things like this would be a thing of the past – obviously not.
