A debate which is receiving a lot of attention of late, is whether disabled people can be "inspirational" for doing everyday things - or if the tag is condescending.
Two big Super Bowl advertisements have reignited this debate. During the American football festivities earlier this month, Paralympian Amy Purdy (picture curtesy of Getty images) ran, snowboarded and danced for Toyota, while Microsoft showed off how its technology helps a six-year old boy with prosthetic legs.
Trending radio recently brought together two disabled bloggers to debate the adjective. Is it OK to be "inspired" by disabled people - and is the "inspiring" tag encouraging or offensive? You can read their responses here.
