Deaf Culture and tidbits

Genocide and Deaf

Sentiments of linguicide and culturicide can be found in phonocentric society in everyday life.

For examples, sign language has been commonly forbidden from using with deaf babies. It was banned in deaf schools around the world since the Congress of Milan in 1880 with the decrease of ban from the 1970s.

Comments that condescending "Deaf culture" and "Deaf community" have been often seen in the spheres of oralism, medical fields (especially that advocate cochlear implants), and eugenicists.
