During my college years and initial post college years I was a regular watcher of Family Guy. I have since grown out of the show but do remember this particular scene. This is the front entrance ramp of character Joe Swanson who is a wheelchair user. And it’s not one that would be very functional or safe in real life. Now I don’t expect a cartoon that strives to insult everyone equally to draw out a proper ramp. But I still want to point out the flaws and discuss public perceptions of what’s wheelchair accessible.
*(Arguments can be made as to whether this episode was straight insulting to people with disabilities or if it had an underlying positive message. I’m not going to delve into that topic and just talk about the ramp. After all this is a design blog!)
