They DO want to do it
add to Watch List
I used to teach visually challenged kids many years ago.
They longed to be able to do the things they read about but never had the chance to try, such as jumping off a diving board. It's the kind of stuff you can't really understand until you experience it.
So yes, the person involved feels that they are missing something, and wants to try it. No one is making them; they <i>want</i> to. And as long as basic safety issues have been addressed, why shouldn't they? I don't see this kind of thing as inappropriate. Performing surgery, now that would be inappropriate. But not taking part in sports. (And you can't 'get over' something like being blind by jumping off a diving board; if you could, there would be LONG lines.
