I think honestly, some people who think they’re gay, they’re confused. People can misconstrue closeness for love. People can feel connected, they bond. I’m not saying all [gay people are confused]. Some people have a desire to be with the same sex. But that’s them.”
—R&B legend Stevie Wonder in the Guardian.
This raises a few questions I’ve always had.
Can a (born) blind person be gay?
Is MY attraction to people of the same-sex purely VISUAL?
Would I be attracted to MEN, if I had been born blind, and couldn’t SEE them?
And are there blind people (like Stevie Wonder), who are Hetero now, but would be gay if they were ‘sighted’ and could SEE all of the beautiful men surrounding them in the world?
