Deaf Culture and tidbits

Food for Thought - Deconstruction

Hearing interviewer: "Discrimination against the deaf is termed 'audism.' When I ask members of the advocacy group Audism Free America how they feel about a "cure" for deafness, ..."

"They equate it to a cure for being black or female or gay."

"I counter that the analogy might be a stretch, since deafness is the absence of a key sense."

Deaf intervieweee (Karen Christie) rejected the notion: "People aren't absent of whiteness,"... "I am a woman but I am not absent of a penis.'" Source
