I've never understood why deaf people get so upset that people just want to hear, and be normal. No one is forcing deaf people to get cochlear implants but if I was disabled and could fix it....I would. 
The are not DISABLE. People have got to see tha they can do everything that we can do. It's just that they cant hear. Watch the show switched at birth
Not being able to hear is a disability... 
No it's not. I are American sign language 2 and my teachers are/where interpreters and they have told us that it is not a disability. 
Okay...so being deaf is not disabling you from hearing? 
Younmight veipiew it as being a duality button them it is who they are and they embrace being Deaf. Yes I am hearing but I have meet some Deaf people and they talk perfectly fine and sign. Without having the implant.

That's great for them, but it's still a disability. I'm not saying they're bad people, or that they're more stupid than I am, but if you cannot hear or see or speak or think or anything as well as the average person, you're disabled.

It's what you think best. But my American sign language teacher told me is that thenDeaf community frowns apoun people getting them. Deaf people can speak: with their mouth but they normally don't, and with their hands. American sign language is a great language and it's really cool. the reason why the community frowns apoun it is because they don't have a big population of deaf people and if everyone went out and got Cochlear implants then the language would soon be a dead language. FYI: there is a difference between deaf and Deaf. Deaf means you are using the language and you consider yourself to be part of the Deaf community. deaf is where you just can't hear, youndontbsign that much or anything like that.
I totally agree smile

Yeah, no. It's a disability. If they're too disabled to hear, they're not really doing everything a normal abled-bodied person can do.
