1. I do believe that there is a Deaf Culture.

2. I do believe that deafness is a disability.

3. People who embrace Deaf Culture do not see deafness as a disability.

4. One can be hearing and still be Culturally Deaf.

5. If a pill existed that could cure hearing loss a Deaf person would likely not want to take it....

5a. because then they wouldn't be Deaf? But that conflicts with number 4.

Its not logical to me... a culture is based on language, literature, values and beliefs... not a physical impairment.... or is it? once upon a time people believed skin color or race to be a physical impairment.... but now with more equality other cultures still exist. If someday deafness could be eliminated, would the Deaf Culture still exist?
