I would not have made that connection either and it is definitely interesting, but in my opinion there is a pretty big difference between changing gender and purposely inflicting harm on oneself to create a disability. I'm still trying to get over the shock that someone who claims to be a professional actually helped her do that!

The most horrifying part to me was the
psychologist/psychiatrist/whatever guy making a twisted argument that
helping her blind herself was ethical behavior for a professional. One
interesting reaction was from someone who commented that her decision,
as a sighted person, to make herself blind is no different than a man
who decides he should be a woman or a woman who decides she should be a
man. I'm not sure I agree entirely but it was interesting to me because
that is a connection I would have never made on my own.

Warning to those who are easily upset; you may want to skip this
video. Describing it as sickening isn’t too strong a term in my
opinion. Chip From: tabi-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hello All,I saw this on another list, and thought I’d get local
opinions.The article below is about a woman who chose to make herself
blind. Before the audio, there is advertisement for a movie, but the
article should play after that. All opinions I have read so far have
showed anger towards this woman and her doctor. The opinion is also
that she is crazy, and shouldn’t be accepted by the blind community for
what she has done. Decide for yourself!!
