Quote# 11211

That said, no blind person goes and brags and tells everyoen that he is so happy to be blind. He adapts to his condition and tries to lead as normal a life as possible. I dont like the promotion of gay lifestyles.

Nekhbet: Actually, you might have read it anyway. There are screen readers and other technologies that allow people with low or no vision to use computers.

you expect one of those to parse fundie dribble or gangsta vernacular?

It'd switch itself off to avoid a short circuit after reading the 500th exclamation mark.

\"Well, I've heard people seriously argue that autism isn't a handicap, so why not have blind as a lifestyle? Brain should be an asset to their marketing?\"

I happen to like my ability to hyperfocus and think in odd ways. The sensory issues kind of suck though and can go away now.
Like someone else said, it varies from person to person.

Quite true.

<<<I dont like the promotion of gay lifestyles.>>>

Whew, you had me worried! For a second there, I thought you were actually sane. That being said, what \"promotion of gay lifestyles\" are you referring to? You mean that some people are born gay and want to live normal lives without being told that they're horrible criminals because an ancient book of myths says so? Get a life.

Let me see, they demand braille signs, they demand sonoral signals, to let guide dogs in restaurants and premises, and demands respect. And they are happy to be blind as long as they are not considered sinners.

The first part would work if I hadn't met blind people who say that they're happy being blind

Leviticus specifically commands not to put a stumbling block before the blind. Are you sure yo want to use that analogy? Or is this one of those cases where the OT only counts when you want it to?

Are you sure blind people aren't happy to be blind? I wouldn't make that assumption. Maybe there's a strong blind culture similar to deaf culture? I don't know.

I'm sure that blind people aren't ashamed of being blind though. I bet most of them are damn proud of who they are. I wonder if they get pissed off when people like Brain treat them like a disability instead of a person?

Hmm I take it this one never heard about how militant some deaf people are.

But at any rate, you're a tard. Being gay isn't a handicap except for what people like you make of it.

What does blind people have to do with gay people? And how many gays are going around bragging and telling "everyoen" that they are so happy to be gay?
Realizing you are gay is probably a very hard thing to do, to a lot of gay people. They also adapt to their "condition" and try to lead as normal a life as possible.
If it wasn't for all bigots, it would be an easy thing to do, as the only thing that is different is the gender you are attracted to and fall in love with.

We are not promoting gay lifestyle, we are promoting tolerance, empathy, respect.
