The use of spoilers on this page seems a tad inconsistent; Kevin being female is spoilered in some places but mentioned openly in others. I think someone with more patience than I should go through the page and remove all spoiler tags from the "Kevin is a girl" references.
Just deleted this from Viewers Are Geniuses:
...because, ironically, this "correction" of a "popular misconception" is itself based on a popular misconception; failure to understand what blindness in general, and colour blindness in particular, actually are. Blindness isn't necessarily a total lack of vision; someone who can discern light and dark, but not shapes, would be registered blind even though they have a small amount of vision.
Similarly, colour blindness doesn't necessarily mean total monochrome vision; far, far more common is red-green blindness, which is an inability to distinguish between those two hues. Men (it's almost exclusively men) who suffer this defect have far better colour vision than that ascribed to dogs above, and yet are classified as colour blind.
If someone fixed all the slashes I inadvertently added during the early phase of the WYSIWYG editor, THANK YOU. I don't know how to revert edits on this wiki or I would've simply done it that way.

How well does it match the trope?
