    Devon's obviously attractive but, more importantly, seems like a wonderful person. That guy was an idiot and an asshole. I hope she continues to gain confidence :)

    Her mum concerned about how her daughter is online and that it's not the real her. Then she's sat there dressed up with make up trying to be young. Mutton dressed as lamb. Pot, kettle, black. Also if she's not afraid to hide it, why is it covered up?

    Oh no that guy leaving😢 how rude.. at least have the decency to say it to her face, you can be honest and still be gentle about it. A text like that makes me so mad. Weak, dude.

    These women are amazing! I also hope you can find the people who do not even dare to take a photo of themselves, let alone look in the mirror. In our very visual world, it can be true hell, forget meeting anyone, photos is all they want to see; they don't even just want to meet you first as friends.

    lots of people have it far worse than this woman, get over her self and get on with life that everyone else.

    • Grade A Trash On Wheels
      Grade A Trash On Wheels Month ago

      HappyandAtheist first off people should seriously stop trying to invalidate anyone’s disability just by looking at them you cannot tell anything from that. Especially severity or the struggles that come with it. And it’s not a competition nobody’s “worse” than one another all of our struggles within the disability community are valid. And she has a prosthetic leg which comes with its own difficulties along with being partially deaf so maybe try to be an empathetic person in the future since you luckily don’t know what it’s like to be in someone with a disabilities shoes. Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

    🤔 cant see anything wrong with her leg? Like for real all the fuss everyone's making I was expecting to see something truly hideous.. Why make such a big deal about it there be people so much worse off than her for gods sake😧

    • RitaSparita *
      RitaSparita * Month ago

      @S R aha! Thank you sir. See, not something hideous atall. Therein lay the confusion.. I wondered why it seemed to have a pretty pattern. Just a poorly made video.. and sheeple leavig stupid comments. Not the people who participated in its fault.

    • S R

      RitaSparita * Month ago

      @Grade A Trash On Wheels first off, I'm well aware of the struggles and unique problems that everyone face. I appreciate people feel their troubles are just as sever as anyone's else's. Secondly, I'm not invalidating anything just stating a fact.. people making out like she's hideous and terribly deformed when it turned out just not be so. And thirdly, my irritation was directed at the people commenting not the girl in the video herself, as well as the BBC in general🙂 people need to calm the f down.

      When she was born she was starved of oxygen so had breathing difficulties which she wears hearing aids likely affected her hearing she was also born without a thigh bone so has to have a prosthetic leg xx

    I really don't see anything really weird about her.. just she walks a little funny.. so what..

    • Biscuit Gidoni
      Biscuit Gidoni Month ago

      @Grade A Trash On Wheels I'm not saying it like a bad thing.. I'm saying just because she walks a little funny I don't know why someone would be so mean to her about it. And I didn't know it was a prosthetic.. I just thought she was missing a bone and it caused her to walk funny.. and I'm like who cares if you walk funny, you still look beautiful, don't look like you have any deformations.. I just didn't understand, that's all.

    • Grade A Trash On Wheels

      Biscuit Gidoni she has a prosthetic which comes with its own personal challenges physically and mentally. You can say “so what” but you’ve not been in her shoes.

    I agree, in this day & age there's lots of different people with lots of differences, such as their colour, their race, their sexuality & of course their disabilities! I've grown up along side people with different disabilities, both physical & mental. I myself have a mental disability - dyslexia, I also have anxiety.
    I'm Amazed you can speak openly about your disability! Your an Incredible person!

    Can someone explain what's visually different with the leg? I'm not seeing it

    • pink pink
      pink pink Month ago

      @emcdavee either hes so sensitive a prothstetic bothered him enough, or maybe she told him the condition and he looked up pictures and decided he wasnt for it. Or she took if off real quick for him if she had a skirt? Idk he was super rude about it regardless

    • emcdavee
      emcdavee Month ago

      @pink pink Ye so you can't actually see anything different when clothed surely? (As you can't see anything in the video) How did the guy notice?....it almost sounds like an excuse he made up

    • pink pink
      pink pink Month ago +1

      Shes missing a femur, so imagine if the space between your hip and knee was gone, but below the knee is still attached. The girls just wear prosthetics so they have full leg length to walk, that's why u cant see it.
