Inspiration Porn Watch: Mom Gets Degree, Disabled Son Erased

A classic piece of inspiration porn. A disabled young man wants to go to school. The school has no way to help him, so his mom takes him to every class. School rewards her with her own degree, and that story overshadows the following.

  • 1) Mom was required to help the son instead of him having appropriate accommodations provided for him.
  • 2) The son finished school and it was HIS BIG DAY.
But now everyone is just talking about the great mom.

Inspiration porn buries analysis of ableist societal structures under a mountain of awwwwwwww.
