:)EDIT: I just wanna point out that I phrased myself poorly, most quadriplegics can of course also enjoy sexual things, but not physically with their penis or vagina.I have been with someone in a chair for five years now. Be prepared to learn a whole hell of a lot about how serious and pervasive discrimination against the disabled is. My favorite was a fine young gentleman who had decided all on his own that heterosexual intercourse would be impossible for my girlfriend.

Unless we ask, please don't suddenly start pushing us.Let me start with how I really don't even see the chair. As strong as I feel, there are obviously moments and things that I am curious about.He is amazing, and no one has made me feel this way ever. We are very open, and I certainly can ask him anything, but I was wondering if there were any ladies out there in relationships with someone who is wheel chair bound who wouldn't mind sharing their experiences with me!But I have no inside information on this or what to say except for the fact that I might have been paying more attention to things like this.
Then it was appropriated as an insult because people like to stigmatize mental illness. The new terminology "intellectually disabled" is ugly, academic-sounding, and nine syllables long, and the term "mentally challenged" never became nearly as popular as "retard", plus people didn't give a shit about "tolerance" until recently, so I think you're wrong. I'd like to point out that person first language isn't always the best choice since some groups like Deaf have rejected that because "a person with hearing loss" focuses on what we cannot do and being deaf is a major part of our identity. I've read that there's a difference between identifying as "Deaf" or "deaf" - like with the capital it's part of a subculture.
(Let's top this off with being loooooooong distance.
We have known eachother for years however)I am a guy, I have a wheelchair but I am not bound to it.
Like with this post, I instantly wondered how the sex worked. I mean, I definitely agree with making sure our language isn't inherently offensive, but still.
And then I immediately thought "that's none of my bloody business". During med school they went from using the word "compliance", to "adherence" to some complete other word, to differentiate between the doctors plan (you will comply with my orders) to following a plan you'd made together (adhering to it) to a plan the patient had come up with. I understand not wanting to define people by their characteristics, but saying "a person with disabilities" is way more cumbersome than "a disabled person".
