RE: Sighted People
Wow, thanks for that link BQ, I haven't seen my blind cousin for a few years now, It was very awkward at first because you feel sorry, and also wonder if you should feel guilty for being thankful for your own sight.
I began to see it not as a disability but rather just an injury, no different than if he was wearing a blindfold. Once I did that then awkwardness of guilt and pity was gone.
I also heard him complain that most people speak to him as a 5 year old.

Now when I meet an "injured" person, I don't mention the missing leg/burnt face/wheelchair, unless they bring it up first, sort of rude to assume they would want to explain it for the millionth time.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".
