  This is related to my wheelchair, I suppose. Just
  because I can't walk, people would ignore me when
  making plans to go dancing or maybe even just go for
  coffee. The place probably isn't accessible or they
  think, what would a girl who can't walk do when we go
  clubbing or dancing? Honestly, I dance better than
  you, and I'm only moving my upper body.

EDIT: It took a couple tries to get the formatting write. Anyway, I'm just saying that 1) You shouldn't just call people in 'poor bastards', and 2) There are people in wheelchairs who can dance well and enjoy it a lot.
