Thanks for warding-off Kadinsky for me Ollie - apparently he confused my metaphor between such groups as they relate to victims of deafness, and advocates for religiously justified non-treatment of cancer patients with the CHILDREN themselves. I was hoping you knew what you were talking about.

Awww, that was really cute. Hard to imagine what it would be like. I guess like eating crackers for 5 years then getting a nice big steak dinner.

Funny thing that. Every birthday, I tell myself: "This is the one. No more talking sh*t from now on." But then I get on IAB, and somehow all the willpower just evaporates...

Suicism: There`s a difference between being radical-catholic and deaf. You don`t decide to become deaf. So it`s not logical deaf people would make a `maffia`, as OldOllie makes it sound like. Even IF it has some kind of truth to it; it`s incredibly harsh to say that the deaf community is basically a mob of people who think their deafness is something they can profit from.
I think that one cannot compare a physical "defect" (sorry for the harsh use of words)which one is born with, or befalls him under miserable circumstances; with the choice of religion. It doesn`t make sense.

But whatever, I`ve already given up on some people on this godforsaken planet.

Troll.

Ollie, WTF are you even talking about? Liberals? It`s a kid who was deaf who is no longer deaf. Now he can hear. Whence into this enters politics? I call bullsh*t.

Lionhart "I was deaf until 3 yrs of age."

Sorry about your hearing. Now, lemme ask you, at what age are you going to stop talking sh*t? Meant with love. No homo, you Tassie bastard.

Old Ollie can speak for himself, but after reading your post Kadinsky I was expecting something truly horrible - not so.

Apparently you stopped at the words "liberal", "deaf" and phrase "much better chance to succeed now."

I haven`t any research made into the reality of his claim, but if true, it`s no better than certain religious parents` election to forgo cancer treatment for their children who they believe are being miserably (and thanks to them, irretrievably) integrated into the Plan of God. I`m sure you wouldn`t hesitate to lambast any group which advocated such a practice as `religious fundamentalists` or even worse, Nazis themselves (passive euthanasia) but Ollie can`t point out a similar phenomenon from the other side of the spectrum (with his own choice of phraseology, mind you).

Chillax dude.

OldOllie:"This kid has a much better chance to succeed on his own now. But I suppose the "deaf community" (deaf liberals) will be lamenting the loss of another parasite on society. "

I wish you were deaf. I mean this. At my work, one of the IT-guys is deaf; and everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY, knows (even just a little) signing language. He`s the funniest guy I`ve ever seen in a while; and he`s one of the best IT-guys at our work.

So what the hell are you saying that deaf people are parasites. You`re no better than a Nazi. Seriously, I hope your kid gets born deaf. Maybe then you`ll learn a thing or two about the deaf community.

Retard.

What`s really messed up is that there are deaf people who want this to be banned. They think parents should accept that their children are deaf and help them become part of the so-called "deaf community." These are the same people who demand that deaf children be assigned a full-time aide at taxpayers` expense to follow them around and sign for them.

This kid has a much better chance to succeed on his own now. But I suppose the "deaf community" (deaf liberals) will be lamenting the loss of another parasite on society.

I was deaf until 3 yrs of age. Its more of a shock than anything at first, you are so used to people moving their mouths, watching tv, etc that you never even suspect there is a part of it everyone else gets that you don`t.

@patchouly It`s only startling because we`re used to hearing so clearly. To someone who has never heard before, it is a brand new thing and thus the noises do not have the same connotation.

My wife teaches deaf and hard-of-hearing students, so I hear about stuff like this every day. It`s pretty cool stuff.

Zerocyde, you can still get your son an implant, but it might not be as effective as if you implanted him when he was younger.

It`s not restored hearing. It`s buzzes and electrical noises, that occur when sounds are made. What the patient hears is nothing like what we hear and is often very startling and disturbing.

My wife and I missed out on that as the stupid drating state said our son was autistic and had perfect hearing. We bugged them until he was 3 before they allowed a re-test and found he was *gasp* actually deaf.

But it was fun watching him hear for the first time at 3 too. :)
