some of them are married to hearing people and even have hearing children. It's a lie.
Actually, isn't the statistic that 90% of Deaf people marry other Deaf people?
Also, I think it depends on your definition of "isolate". Are natives who choose to live on reservations isolating themselves? What about the Chinese who live in a Chinatown and choose to use Chinese as their primary language and send their children to Chinese schools?
But NONE of this has to do with a family deciding to get their child a CI. Good luck to Elliot!!!!!!!!
:bsflag: Not true at all. CI users can do anything except deep sea scuba diving and play with a Van De Graaf machine. Why are you making up lies? Are you so uncomfortable with yourself that you have to make things up to scare people just so you feel better? Also, unless you have been living under a rock, you should know that CIs are in the EAR not the brain.
90%, lol. Not even close.
Lets see..."90% Rate
Various statistics concerning the deaf | DEAF-INFO
There was a question from where the 90% Deaf-Deaf Marriage rate came
from. The following statistics are from "The Deaf Population of the
United States," by Jerome Schein and Marcus Delk, published in 1974 by
I don't know from the limited information how the sample of over a
thousand deaf people were drawn from, but the satistics are as
Married Males deafened under the age of 3:
82% had deaf spouses 7% had hard of hearing spouses
Married Males deafened at the age of 3-18:
77% had deaf spouses 6% had hard of hearing spouses
Married Females deafened under the age of 3:
86% had deaf spouses 6% had hard of hearing spouses
Married Females deafened at the age of 3-18:
65% had deaf spouses 9% had hard of hearing spouses
Schein also noted that the divorce rates were far higher for marriages
in which one spouse is hearing than for those in which both are deaf."
Remember, when your son gets a CI, he will never be able to play sports. It's too dangerous with a CI attached to the brain.
That post is a flat out lie and you should be ashamed of yourself for posting such garbage.
I am also requesting the moderators to remove it immediately.
In just college alone, here are some of the sports I personally know ci kids are playing:
Posts like the one from this yizwhatever character are exactly the reason why I advise all parents considering the ci for their child to join the ci circle.
