If anyone who has to use a wheelchair to get around has an issue with that, they're the a**holes.

Do you use a wheelchair? You know what, even if you do, you can't just call people "a**holes" because they don't see things the way you do.

What does this even mean? That no one whostill has to use a wheelchair has the right to feel envious of, or even resentful over, Barbara's cure because she went back to being Batgirl? Do you envision the rest of us cheering from the sidelines, content in the knowledge that nothing we could ever do could possibly be as worthy as that?

You don't get to pass judgment on what people in wheelchairs think and feel about their own situations and others'.

So what gives them the right to pass judgement on those when they don't know what they're going through? Sure, feeling envious and resentful is a very understandable emotion, but by no means should be something we should encourage. What good would that do?
