what is ‘inspiration porn’?

… Inspiration porn is an image of a person with a disability, often a kid, doing something completely ordinary – like playing, or talking, or running, or drawing a picture, or hitting a tennis ball – carrying a caption like “your excuse is invalid” or “before you quit, try”. Increasingly, they feature the … quote. …

“The only disability in life is a bad attitude.”
- cancer survivor Scott Hamilton

This image of a little girl running on a set of prosthetic legs alongside Oscar Pistorius is often used as an example of inspiration porn.

If he can do it, what’s my excuse?

If I’m inspired by Mitchell Marcus and Jonathon Montanez, I’m inspired. It’s an emotional reaction.
