Kylie is wearing a black vinyl corset, a collar, and black spike heels with straps and buckles around the ankles. Some say that in this representation Kylie is appropriating disability. I suppose that means she is using an image of disability for her own gain as a non-disabled person.

I also happen to use a wheelchair; I was diagnosed shortly after my first birthday with a motor neuron disease. I have about as much physical strength as a quadriplegic, but I have full sensation. Boy howdy, do I!
Considering how much we and I mean human beings seem to love hooking up, it's surprising how many people you meet on the mainstream dating apps and sites that aren't remotely sex-positive.

Surely I wait patiently for men online to present themselves to me?

No surprise there, in all honesty, who wouldn't? Seriously, I'm sharp as a tack, funny, drop dead gorgeous and I have my own money. And according to a number of "learned" professionals and a small but vocal segment of the amputee community, if you think that adds to my attractiveness, you have a mental illness.
