Bound by Ableism (Halftone Tote Bag)
The phrase "wheelchair bound", or a similar phrase "Confined to a Wheelchair", are offensive because wheelchair users (the proper term) would say their wheelchairs liberate them or set them free, it gives them greater mobility! Some wheelchair users would consider their wheelchair their "legs" or an extension of themselves, and certainly not something that bounds them.
Ableism is discrimination and social prejudice against people with disabilities. It characterizes persons as defined by their disabilities and as inferior to the non-disabled.
Some people with disabilities would say they are confined more from ableism (the ableist environment they live in) than their disability or wheelchair. So this design is turning "Wheelchair Bound" to "Bound by ableism." One of the signs that ableism is still a huge issue is just the fact that many people have never heard the term before, or if they have, rarely.
