Yep. Everything depicted in every single cartoon frame here, is right on. These examples have all happened to me, too. For whatever reason, it simply cannot ever seem to be adequately explained, to someone who is NOT color blind.

Good job!

OH MY GOD, this is EVERY conversation I have about this!

My typical version of this conversation is:

Him: Okay, if you're 'color blind,' what color is my shirt?

Me: White.

Him: See, you're lying! How did you know that's it white?

Me: Because it's a t-shirt. And t-shirts are white. Plus, it's very very white, so it's kind of obvious.

Him: [long pause] I don't believe you.

Thanks for giving all us color blind people a voice!

Yeah, it's like they caught you in a lie if you get the color right. Even though if you were faking it, you'd just make something up anyway.

I really hope our kids are not color blind, or I'll be asking them all these questions. hehe!

Gaby, unless your Mom's father and brother(s)are color blind, there is little likelihood of your kids being so cursed. Also females (and not males) carry the gene, but are rarely color blind themselves.

Even though I am color-sighted, I understand where you're coming from. Along these lines, you ever notice how people want to try on your glasses, and then when they do, they always say, "Wow, you've got bad eyes." Hmmmmm...that's why I wear glasses.

Actually, Greg, I have perfect 20/20 vision. Which raises the question, what's it like to have crappy eye sight?

Indeed. YOu hit the nail on the head. And, Mark or whomever said it is right - the female carries the gene and passes it on, so it was mom (and Betty) that screwed us over. Kidding mom! No really. But it's really not so bad, and really it's color blending that gives us the most trouble.

In addition to being just plain color blind, I am also completely color blend blind. A double whammy. Walk a mile in these shoes. Whatever color they are...
