You know, it's pretty sad and ridiculous when people look at your character and go "Ewwww! You have no legs! Pervert!" and then five minutes later go find some scatty picture and comment positively, or some such bull.
I think handicapped characters are wonderful. It might be someone's fetish, but if there's a reasoning behind it, why judge?
If it's just completely random, that's bad. If there's story or history to it, that's good. lol
Just a couple to give example. There used to be a really sweet, adorable comic about a bull and housecat couple where the housecat was a mute, and the finished the comic with him signing "I lvoe you" before they embraced. But I can't find it :c
Also, what would you all think If I created a handicapped character? I'm thinking maybe multiple handicaps, nothing extreme though.
