Hi, all. Dave, I am curious how you learned it was an April Fools joke. Do
tell. I had wondered that, but wasn't sure.
However, even if this particular email is a joke, it has the unfortunate
ring of truth. I've talked to various sighted people, and many actually do
have the misconceptions that the email talks about. I've been asked
questions like the ones described in the email, and actually had female
friends tell me that they wish they could be with a blind man, because they
think he'd make a better partner.
To the person who felt this topic shouldn't be discussed on this list, I
disagree. Yes, it's a sensitive subject, but it is part of human nature,
and it's not like the blind are asexual. Smile
