However, the deaf find this offensive. They are "the hearing impaired" as if to say that there was something wrong with them. Study have been shown that the deaf don't concerned themselves to be missing anything at all. They were just born with out the ability to hear. But many believe that this is the beginning of a Cultural genocide.
This has been a debate for years. And reminds me of the discussion we had of truth. The hearing society says, "they need to be fixed", but the deaf say, "there is nothing broken." One culture believes that they are trying to help another, yet that culture that is being helped believes that they are being threatened. One person's idea of truth is different from the others. No matter how long this world survives human will not be able to agree on what the real truth is.
