You don't really want a colorblind society

Why do people keep talking about a "colorblind" society and it's being a good thing? I wish they would come up with a new name for the idea of people getting along with each other because being colorblind is not all it's cracked up to be. Take it from an atypical monochromatic, the affliction of actual colorblindness is no fun. Perhaps those few of us who actually exist are another of those minorities that have a voice wanting to be heard. I personally don't wish to see a colorblind society. Then who would I ask to make sure I'm not purchasing that vivid pink shirt!?

i Agree. Instead of being colorblind, we should just stop looking at weaknesses and start seeing the strengths of differance. you should read the giver, this book deals with this issue perfectly.

One eye I see blues as purples, and the other eye sees purples as blues.

multiple things:

If you all are color blind....what does it matter what color the shirt is? ?Ain't a one of you can see it.

Sometimes it has it's advantages. Colorblind people aren't fooled by camoflague. That's why they are often used for snipers.

Now, have you looked into the contacts that trick colorblind people's eyes into seeing color?

And welcome!

True... I'm pretty colorblind myself, and even with corrective lenses, I'm deadly in paintball, hehe...cause I can always see them hiding...

One in ten men have some kind of color-blindness.

If you prick me I bleed red, kick me I go purple, stick me in the sun I go brown, get me sick I go yellow green and grey, feeling down I turn blue...I am coloured....

Hate to be colour blind though, my grandfather was and I always asked him difficult questions about it.

I've pretty much grown accustomed to living with colorblindness. It tends to make me a better photographer because I can see the overall scene, not particular colors of objects in the scene. The worst thing is when people continually say things like, "Turn right at the red house," "Or check out that blue car." Things like that.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, so with that said...
Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret, also known as ATS, the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

*** Please be sure to be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride your all on. You should be mentally fit, stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented that may be contrary to your own.

*** Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might think or expect. Be aware you also might end up learning something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride.

*** Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

*** Please have fun! Be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!
