My friend has been blind her entire life, and I can guarantee her facial expression look no different than anybody elses. Also, I'm not sure if anybody close to you has ever had a kid, but they also have a wide range of expressions. It's natural, even babies smile, or look angry, or look like they're constantly constipated. Shit's natural

I work in a grocery store geared towards serving those with special needs. I deal with blind people all the time, from both recently blinded, to from birth. All of them show facial expressions as well as any other. A look of concern with a furrowed brow, to even rolling their eyes. As the anon from below said, it's a natural instinct, and not something that has to be learned.

I don't know where you're getting info from that says it's "currently accepted" that it works that way.

voluntary face expression is not the same as involuntary face expression

They'd probably be able to learn how to voluntarily make those expressions by mimicking the way they feel their facial muscles move when they make them involuntarily.
At least, that's make sense.

No you're talking about involuntary. basicargentinian is saying that blind-from-birth people can't preform voluntary facial expressions and Bion is saying that his/her first-hand experience proves to him that blind-from-birth people can still preform these actions even though they never see them.

IMO so long as blind people are described what the facial expression looks like and maybe feel the face of the person preforming it I think that they can do voluntary facial expressions.

I guess they could, if someone taught them.

You can be as respectful as you want about your disagreement, but it's still wrong. Its currently accepted that voluntary face expressions are leant from mimic.

I mean, you could also respectfully disagree with evolution, it's a pretty similar situation, although the evolution theory has a higher degree of confirmation.

(Don't mistake my coment as agresive, I'm trying to be...educational?)
