Hmmm, interesting, about "the blind" and being human.

I have no problem with it anyway, because I just wonder: "The blind" has
and will always refer to humans and not some animals.

Then about blind-specific products: the Orca you are using on the
computer is certainly a blindie thing, isn't it? The fact that you
require specialised applications 'made for the blind' to participate in
mainstream activities says otherwise.
