[...] Blind people are not equal. They are blind.
They don't see stuff. That's what blind means. You KNOW this, so why the insistence that they be equal? They simply are not.
Well I am afraid that's where you are WRONG - from a legal point of view.
If you own a shop and refuses to sell your products to disable people that's discrimination.
If you own a shop and refuses to accomodate your shop access to allow them to be able to get in the shop and buy your products that's discrimination.
The same laws should apply to the internet. End of story.
