Followup: The Sick Children Meme

I think I’ve found the answer to my question from yesterday ...

Kara Ayers describes exactly what I was thinking about, and astutely positions "Desperation Porn" as a polar opposite to "Inspiration Porn", confirming my vague feeling that the two kinds of Internet photo trends are linked.

Images of disability sure are loaded. I'm starting to understand why modern day Muslims and some Chrisitans through history rejected images of God. No matter how you depict something so inherently emotional and packed with meaning, you're going to piss someone off.

I'm gonna keep posting photos, though.
