Of course what you never had you never miss, but the relentless airing of 'I would stay deaf regardless' is not based on choice. A real choice would be to have hearing then compare. As this blogger stated no such choice exists, so it poses the question of why air the view against when it is not based on that choice?
10m hard of hearing Brits and 30m USA with hearing loss, would bite your hands off and say yes because they are able to compare this poster isn't. We hate to be deaf, again no choice!
