What is called "political correctness" can also be deemed as common decency. Our sport is not big enough in terms of numbers to maybe run a separate class, do we then penalise someone because they have a genuine difficulty with mobility/lower body support either by saying "that's automatically 2 zeros" (which may be the case in reality, but would be unfair to assume) or even worse "you cannot kneel/stand in the approved way then you cannot compete" which would be legally questionable and morally wrong.
