I like it with the lights on

Light-bulb-moment

Sometimes, I wonder, do other blind people like it with the lights on?

I mean…when you enter a room, do you automatically reach for the light switch and flip the lights on?

when you are in the bathroom, do you use it with the lights on?

When you are in the kitchen, do you cook with the lights on?

When you step outside at night, do you turn the lights on?

Why do we do that?

I am perfectly capable of wiping my butt with the lights off.

I can, and have, cooked many many meals with not just the lights off, but while under a blind fold.

So, I ask, why do we do it with the lights on?

Is it because societal norms have taught us to turn the lights on when entering a room?

Is it because sighted people do it?

Is it to fit in with our sighted counterparts?

Wouldn’t our energy bills be at least half the price, if we didn’t do it with the lights on?

So to my blind friends, answer me this , do you like it with the lights on?
