Well, Vogue Brasil has fucked a lot of people off with their latest 'Paralympian' photoshoot.
Instead of using people who are actually, you know, Paralympians, they chose to use two able-bodied models and Photoshop off their limbs.
Jesus Christ, even writing it down it looks like an absolutely terrible idea.

They also went for the hashtag #SomosTodosParalímpicos. Which, when translated, means, #WeAreAllParalympians.
Yeesh. You can see why people were kicking off, it takes years of training to be a Paralympian. Plus, there were two actual Paralympians at the shoot who were just watching the able-bodied people take their place. It's like they were saying: 'Yeah, you look alright but these people are a lot more attractive, so....'.

That while Vogue Brazil paralympian story is disgusting.- Runners Knees (@RunnersKnees) 26 August 2016
What do you think? Bearing in mind that countless able-bodied Olympians are deemed attractive enough to front campaigns and the fact that athletes rely heavily on sponsorship deals, is this too far?
