It's not the culture, it's the supportive society and power they're lamenting the loss of. The more deaf there are the more pressure they can exert politically for support, the more people the deaf have with which to share something in common, and the more they can feel special/different/unique/etc. It's 100% selfishness on the part of the deaf community; particularly for those which cannot utilize the implants for various reasons. They're attempting to use political correctness to equate handicap to beauty instead of individuality to beauty.

Nope. I was young, and every bit of the money I had at the time went to defending the bullshit misdemeanor charge against a falsified report (ended up being reduced to a no-point infraction because I had no money to actually go to court). I brought it up to my lawyer and her response was lackluster.
