@VA: Rush Limbaugh is discussing your post from yesterday at this very moment. Blind Identity Integrity they call it -- I think. Rush just went to commercial after this dumb shit.

It's possible the school had one woman as the sole legal guardian of the child, and only later found out the actual situation.

I never understood why people try to get into private organizations which are at-odds with their personal values.

I don't think the school would do this for the publicity since it, (the school) would have far more to lose than anything they could hope to gain.

I strongly suspect that the psychologist did no such thing and she did this to herself.

This person is mentally ill, IMO. Although I have noticed that today's story about someone considered mentally ill is tomorrow's story about our intolerance.

The psychologist should be in jail.

Funny that the school accepted her in the preschool, but now won't. They must have known the status of her parents before, since they are required to have that information on file. So I would dispute who is looking for publicity.

I looked up where this school is, and I wouldn't want to put my kid in any public school in that area. I worked in that area for a couple of years.

NORTH CAROLINA – A North Carolina woman says she is happier than ever after she fulfilled her lifelong wish of becoming blind.

Jewel Shuping, 30, has Body Integrity Identity Disorder, according to Barcroft TV. BIID is a condition in which able-bodied people believe they are meant to be disabled.

She told Barcroft TV that her fascination with blindness started when she was a child.

“By the time I was six I remember that thinking about being blind made me feel comfortable,” she said.

Shuping says that when she was a teenager, she started wearing thick black sunglasses, and even got her first cane when she was 18.

By the age of 20, Shuping says she was fluent in braille.

“I was ‘blind-simming’, which is pretending to be blind, but the idea kept coming up in my head and by the time I was 21 it was a non-stop alarm that was going off,” she told Barcroft TV.

Her need to lose her sight increased as she got older, and by 2006, she claims she found a psychologist who was willing to help her.

Shuping says the psychologist put numbing eye drops into her eyes, and then a couple of drops of drain cleaner.

“It hurt, let me tell you. My eyes were screaming and I had some drain cleaner going down my cheek burning my skin,” she said. “But all I could think was ‘I am going blind, it is going to be okay.”

The woman says it took about half a year for the damage to take full effect.

“When I woke up the following day I was joyful, until I turned on to my back and opened my eyes – I was so enraged when I saw the TV screen,” she told Barcroft TV.

One of her eyes eventually had to be removed, her other eye had glaucoma and cataracts, Barcroft TV reports.

Shuping says she originally told her family it was an accident, but they later found out the truth.

She says her mother and sister have since cut contact.

She told Barcroft TV that she has no regrets and that she hopes to help other blind people live an independent life.

“I really feel this is the way I was supposed to be born, that I should have been blind from birth,” she said. “When there’s nobody around you who feels the same way, you start to think that you’re crazy. But I don’t think I’m crazy, I just have a disorder.”

According to Barcroft TV, Shuping is hoping her story will help raise public awareness of BIID and encourage people with the condition to seek professional help.

A five-year-old San Diego, Calif. girl is at home, instead of starting off kindergarten with her friends, because her school, the Mt. Erie Christian Academy, refused to welcome her any longer because she has two moms, KGTV reports.

The child, who had attended Mt. Erie for pre-school and summer school was abruptly cut off when her parents were called in on the Friday before Labor Day, just before school started, where the pastor broke the news.

"It was heartbreaking,” Sheena, who didn't want her last name to be used, told the news station. “I didn't finish the conversation with them when they took us in the room because I just, I didn't want to look at them any longer. I just couldn't believe that they did that."

She couldn't believe it even though they are a Christian based private school with their own rules which are clearly posted in the student/parent handbook. These are two ignorant idiots using their child to get their 15 minutes and a payday. Fucking disgusting.

We're heading back to SD for the MS Walk in a few weeks. One of my old stomping grounds for biker swag for my friends here in SA, was loaded up with goodies until last night. The Full Throttle Saloon burned to the ground.
