Opression or Evolution
While many people from the 'old deaf guards' a goup of dependency clans in the deaf community think what's happening to their cultural status is 'opression'. Actually It's evolution when the deaf society is evolving into a more interfaceable community. The resistance by the old deaf guards characterizes advancements in technology and biogenetics as oppression. They prefer to see deaf society as a dependency gulag.
