?so what in the world is this blog (whose title is suspiciously similar to another popular blog) about? What is controversial about being blind or disabled?
I’d answer you with a question; what isn’t?
It seems that there are many topics which come up in this community which just simply make people squirm. They can start bitter debates and flame wars on forums, or serve to unite this community behind a banner and inspire.
Something I’ve noticed though, is that many of these topics seem to quietly be avoided. Whether this is a matter of not having an appropriate forum in which to discuss them, or whether simply to avoid upsetting people, some issues simply get put away and seemingly not freely shared.
I had the idea for this blog so that we can speak candidly about the things in this community which may be difficult to discuss or be downright upsetting.
So Blind Controversial is meant to foster free and uncensored discussion. People may find this refreshing. People may find this offensive. My hope though, is that we’ll all find this a way to promote a better understanding of eachother through emotion, intelligence and honesty. It’s my hope that Blind Controversial can bring light from the heat…
anyone is welcome to comment on anything here, as they see fit. this may or may not be pretty or politically correct, but this will be real.
