I don't think disabled should be a body type

Okay, so I know this is probably just me because I actually do happen to have a disability, but I really don't feel that "disabled" should be a body type. It does affect my body, but it doesn't describe it. It doesn't pervade all aspects of the way my body is, the way it works, or how I see it. So if people want to opt in to disclose their disability I think we should be able to have different way to disclose that, or not. I think it should be a choice. And yes "disabled" is something that people can choose to select in the body type menu or not, but still, I think this could be handled with a little more sensitivity to me, and maybe others who are also in the same boat.

Anyway, just a suggestion.

I agree, I found that kind of offensive myself. It's not even accurate or logical. "Body type" is usually a nice way of saying weight or build, and people with disabilities can run the mill from obese to stick thin. And plenty can also be athletic and ripped too. One of my close friends is somewhat disabled and I thought about how pissed she would be if she saw this.

You're making a good point.
