Calling color blindness a "minor disability" is a good point: you listed some interesting examples of when it's been a problem for you. But at least you have your sight and can work around it, so it's not a full disability like blindness. Good for you for defying your kindergarden teacher. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, and I remember my kindergarden teacher saying we had to color within the lines. That floored me, because I wanted to draw my own lines!!!! Maybe it's not so much what we're born with, but what our kindergarden teacher says we can't do that determines what we'll do in life
i've been researching corrective lenses for cb people. i still have a red lens given to me as a child to look through to check colors, but it is a pain to use.
