    I think I'd probably be a little shocked- but that's just human nature to sort of double take when we see something we're not used to. And then, if I was passing you in the street and didn't know you, I'd look away because I don't like to make people who are a little different feel as though people are looking at them. If we were friends, it wouldn't bother me because I'd know you, and you'd know me, and it wouldn't matter.. because little things like that don't matter in true friendship.

    I'd take a double look as it's an unusual thing to see, but I wouldn't find it unnacceptable or disturbing. I'd be curious to know what had happened, but in all honesty your face is beautiful and your eye adds a little mystery, it's nothing to feel ashamed of, it is part of who you are.

    It's not a big deal, worse has happened to me, worse is happening to my family, and even worse is happening in the world.

    You're actually quite a pretty girl. I'm sure that after a few minutes around you anybody would overcome their initial feelings about your eye very quickly.
    Don't worry about it

    sorry but I'm curious, why did you become unhappy with your painted eye?

    Because of her eye?
    You are aware just how ****ing offensive it is to pretend people don't have disabilities?
    I wasn't, why make someone feel like they should cover it up for the benefit of others. Do not jump to conclusions.

    With that I am actually going to have some hope that you are not totally ignorant and wanted to have anyone cover something different for your benefit.

    I don't have a disability, so it wouldn't be pretending.

    I think you look great. As people have already said, I would probably be a tad curious, but it wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

    You look beautiful , the one thing that perplexes me though is you had the balls to put a picture up with your disability, I'm not saying their is nothing wrong with putting it up, It's just I don't have the balls to put up a picture of myself with my lazy eye whereas you put two up as yourself. I'm proud of you, live long and prosper .

    Thank you, but I wouldn't call it a disability.

    Forgive me, I didn't know what to call it without offending you or anyone else. Sorry to ask this but how exactly did you lose your eye? Your hair is lovely, if I were a girl I'm sorry but I'd be inclined to steal your hair :borat:.

    I had cancer as a child which meant they had to take my eye in order to save my life.

    I can't even begin to imagine how painful that must've been for you. :hugs: You're brave, at least you aren't letting it stop you from living life, I'm happy that I met another inspirational G on this website as well as myself , have a wonderful evening.

    I do have a fake eye, it's just clear because I chose to have it that way.
    Im just curious how come you chose a clear eye? I don't know much about eyes but I think I would have got one to match the other as close as possible. To answer the question if I saw you in the street I would simply think 'oh she must have lost an eye' but other than the eye I would assume you were totally normal and wouldnt think much.
