Any particular reason why there can't be? A movement which campaigns for a blind society in which everyone is treated equally and an identical set of rules applies to everyone? Why couldn't such a movement exist?

I am a thin/sighted person with conditional male/hetero privilege. I am Black/Deaf/Disabled and a queer/bi/lesbian trans woman. So with that in mind, I cannot see the benefit of treating everyone in such a society exactly the same. Instead, I want equal opportunity for all. So I should be able to live without having to work, for example. I should be able to present as female without being hurt. I should be able to have access to transportation and feel that my Deafness is accommodated. I should be able to identify as a lesbian without folks saying "but you're a male presenting person that dates women, you're hetero!!!"
