Some years ago, there was a very popular program on MTV called Pimp My Ride. This unique show led to some creative spin-offs such as Pimp My Wheelchair. The idea of these television programs was to take a tired old ugly car or simple, basic old wheelchair and turn it into a thing of beauty. If you have never seen these programes you can find them on youtube or see one episode of Pimp My Wheelchair here.
But making a wheelchair a thing of beauty is quite controversial. Some people love the idea and some people are very uncomfortable with it. Those who love the idea of Pimp My Wheelchair feel that their chair is an extension of their body and they seek beauty in everything about them. They want to express their individuality and show the world their tastes. Those who don't like the idea of pimping a wheelchair are usually concerned with the attention it might attract. They say that they are uncomfortable with the fact that people are staring at them as it is and do not want to give these people any more reason to do that. Both points of view are quite understandable and are a matter of personal opinion.
