Sorry even I need to be careful how I state it. let me restate it more clearly.
there are 'some' here who lump all deaf people in the deaf culture. Or whatever.
alot of this discussion comes from the fact tht cloggy is saying is daughter is not defined by her deafness. Maybe I understand him with no problem because I'm not defined by mine. I'm deaf but it's just a small part of me, an anoying part I lived with for years and now with a CI it's becoem an even more irrelevant part. Now that I've confused everyone even more it's time to go to work.
Everyone have a wonderful Memorial weekend. Hope it's warm and dry and you can enjoy time with friends and family.
