I'm Molly, a typical sushi, makeup, and fashion loving millennial girl who just so happens to be blind! I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at just 4 years old and began public speaking at age 5. I started just doing motivational speaking, but now I make videos and even model! Even though I can’t see, I know that there are bright spots in everything we face. Let’s find them together. 💕

  • Did any of these surprise you? What other blindness related videos do you want to see from me in the future that I haven't done already? PS. Follow @mollyburkeofficial on TikTok for daily content!

    • I'd be REALLY interested in hearing a bit from your blind friend who's a fashion merchandiser. How does being a visual stuff hobbyist or business person differ for blind people who would choose to do it? I'd assumed they would just face so many reminders of their limitations nobody blind would bother, but if not there's a nuanced story I have to hear and wrap my puny visually-abled head around, clearly. (sorry I didn'y see this reply thread before I put this comment in the regular conversation area.)

  • New sub...so maybe you've done this already, but how about a video for sighted friends of the blind, "Top ten things you can do to help without making the blind person ask". My husband has friends invite him to lunch, to go to the range, to go do all kinds of things, but if he asks them to come pick him up, the invitations vanish. Everyone wants to help him cross the street but no one wants to stay out of the kitchen when he's cooking, etc.

  • I have very poor peripheral vision in my left eye and my left eye is also just bad at seeing in general. When I do those eye tests with those machines and the completely cover my right eye, I am only able to see the biggest font on the slide. My right eye however is perfect vision and it does most of the work and makes up for my left eye. I have to wear glasses whenever I read or drive. I know it’s not the same but I just thought I would share. If you cover my right eye, I can’t see anything, it’s just a big blurry mess. Love you Molly. ❤️

  • Hi Molly! Just now when you were describing not seeing black and used your hand at the back your head as a prop - made me think of Neverending Story, the book. I found this piece in it (below), but I think it's a great enough book to listen to :) I'm 29, still think it's awesome. Here goes the quote “Something has happened in Moldymoor,” said the will-o’-the-wisp haltingly, “something impossible to understand. Actually, it’s still happening. It’s hard to describe-the way it began was-well, in the east of our country there’s a lake- that is, there was a lake-Lake Foamingbroth we called it. Well, the way it began was like this. One day Lake Foamingbroth wasn’t there anymore-it was gone. See?” “You mean it dried up?” Gluckuk inquired. “No,” said the will-o’-the-wisp. “Then there’d be a dried-up lake. But there isn’t. Where the lake used to be there’s nothing-absolutely nothing. Now do you see?” “A hole?” the rock chewer grunted. “No, not a hole,” said the will-o’-the-wisp despairingly. “A hole, after all, is something. This is nothing at all.” The three other messengers exchanged glances. “What-hoo-does this nothing look like?” asked the night-hob. “That’s just what’s so hard to describe,” said the will-o’-the-wisp unhappily. “It doesn’t look like anything. It’s-it’s like-oh, there’s no word for it.” “Maybe,” the tiny suggested, “when you look at the place, it’s as if you were blind.” The will-o’-the-wisp stared openmouthed. “Exactly!” it cried. “But where-I mean how-I mean, have you had the same. ..?” “Wait a minute,” the rock chewer crackled. “Was it only this one place?” “At first, yes,” the will-o’-the-wisp explained. “That is, the place got bigger little by little. And then all of a sudden Foggle, the father of the frogs, who lived in Lake Foamingbroth with his family, was gone too. Some of the inhabitants started running away. But little by little the same thing happened to other parts of Moldymoor. It usually started with just a little chunk, no bigger than a partridge egg. But then these chunks got bigger and bigger. If somebody put his foot into one of them by mistake, the foot-or hand-or whatever else he put in-would be gone too. It didn’t hurt-it was just that a part of whoever it was would be missing

  • There are two analogies that help me wrap my head around seeing nothing: - It's like seeing out of your elbow, just not a thing (stole this one from Tommy Edison the blind DEhaver) - Birds have a magnetic sense (the perceive the Earth's magnetic fields), humans don't. When you hear about it, you can sort of imagine what it's like but you don't have any lived experience of what it actually is. You don't feel a lack of it (like blackness often feels in relation to sight), you just don't feel its existence at all in any way

  • This was an interesting video. I stumbled upon it as a recommendation on my channel. I'm not blind, but have psychological disorders that are commonly misunderstood. (ex: Anxiety Disorder does NOT = Stress! It's actually the body's inability to handle stress appropriately; it's NOT stress in and of itself. "But you don't LOOK disabled!" Is freaking annoying!) It's eye opening to see how someone with a physical disability copes with the public. Definitely things I wasn't aware of about the blind community! Thanks for sharing.

  • Such a harmul video to the blind and VI community. I rather people assume I cant see something than assume I can, I rather someone ask me questions. Its so nice you dont need sunglasses for painul glare and photo sensitivity but many of us do, outdoors and indoors. You shouldnt say no people see black. If you're going to spread misinformtion as facts you should keep using that slogan of "I'm not speaking for all blind people, I am Molly who happens to be blind".

    A Google userA Google userVor 5 Monate
    • Molly does wear sunglasses for glare etc. As for the blindness seeing black, she's saying that people assume blindness *always* equals seeing black, and she is NOT saying that it doesn't exist. She's pointing out there's a spectrum between sighted and "blackness" in the blind. Completely blind will be when someone has basically zero nerves or even eyes. You can't see "black" if you don't have eyes.

Not until she’s driven there and explored the town that it begins to ‘draw’ itself along with what you already knew. Hopefully that wasn’t too confusing. Hugs.

It did freak me out since I was so young and couldn’t understand, but now I know that was just her way of finding out what I looked like and she probably only did it because I was a family member. She has since passed 💔 but that was my first memory of encountering a blind person so for a long time I assumed every blind person felt Faces, so thank you Molly for always educating people like me who may have misconceptions about the community.

  • The concept of Nothing is actually talked about in an extremely interesting way in The Neverending Story - a book, and also a movie, in which parts of a fictional universe begin to disappear. The author takes great care to differentiate it from blackness, and in fact states that those viewing the Nothing feel as if they've lost their sight while looking at it, but that it's not the same at all as simply "seeing black," which I think can be really helpful for understanding the difference between what sighted people think of blindness as versus what blind people actually experience.

  • I started going blind in my right eye when I turned 18, at first if was just a little blurry but it's just gotten worse and worse, people got super offended over it when I started asking questions because "it's offensive to say you're going blind" which I didn't know? Idk, my doctor doesn't know if I'll go fully blind or not but I can't really use the right eye currently. I had no idea how many variations there were and honestly you could never tell I have eye trouble unless you're like, sitting next to me on my right and making like a face or sneaking up. I still feel weird talking about it because I got yelled at about it being offensive that I was scared because I was going blind/losing my eyesight.

    • I'm still really scared tbh, sure I've gotten used to it but I'm honestly terrified I'll lose it completely, sure I cant really see out of it, everything is blurry if I shut my left eye but it's gotten worse over time, in the beginning I just couldn't see super far ahead. I'm scared that my other eye will start being affected because I have a career where I need my eyesight and my hobbies are reading/painting (I can't do audio books because I overthink everything and can never focus unless I'm reading it myself) and I live in a place where you kind of HAVE to drive and be super independent. I'm going to my doctor's and stuff but it's hard because I can't seem to talk about it without people getting upset at me but I need to talk to feel better if that makes sense.

    • Black is the absence of colour / light. But if your eye doesn't take in light and doesn't work like an eye should, then there will be no light and colour to try and see. Seeing "nothing" is basically like... Well, tell me what your toe can see? That's nothing..

  • Seeing NOTHING rather than black is a mind warp. Are there people who have been sighted and understand the concept of "black" who can describe what it feels like and is to suddenly not have a visual surface that your brain returns to of any specified colour? I can only think of moments when I'm really dazed or caught up in thought and not registering, so far as I can tell, any visuals that my eyes are seeing. Like slleping with eyes open . . .

How does being a visual stuff hobbyist or business person differ for blind people who would choose to do it? I'd assumed they would just face so many reminders of their limitations nobody blind would bother, but if not there's a nuanced story I have to hear and wrap my puny visually-abled head around, clearly.

It was because of these migraines that I started realizing that I always used to think that blindness was seeing black. During these episodes, I don't see black. I see nothing. It's so hard to explain but I'm glad this was addressed! I have this argument all the time with people I know. It's difficult to explain to people who haven't experienced it.
