did anyone see Holby city last night? yet another example in a story line of blind people not being allowed to make their own decisions and deal with the consequences. the story in brief as far as I watched it:
Blind woman admitted to hospital with a bad reaction to something;
Sighted husband eventually admits that she ate magic mushrooms;
Blind woman ate mushrooms so that she could see in her hallucinations;
Sighted husband says she only ate one;
blind woman eventually admits to having taken some extra;
sighted husband gets blames;
blind woman says it was her;
police and social services involved because blind woman can’t surely have been responsible.
this sort of story line makes me so angry. yet another portrayal of blind people obsessing with needing to see and being perceived as not being responsible adults prepared to take their own risks.
when will the media get it right?
