    I think that being blind is much worse than being deaf so I would rather go deaf. If you were blind you could never get to see who the people you love and care for even look like. You could not expirience the world in the best way I think is possible. If you agree, please go check out the non profit organization, Lighthouse for the Blind and Vision Impaired!!

  • I would rather be deaf

    I would want to be deaf because i were to be blind, i wouldn't be able to experience the world i am living in. I would be even more miserable if i couldn't see who my family and friends were. I would prefer to be deaf because i could at least see where i'm going and could catch on to it and deal with that.

  • I'd rather be deaf

    If you're deaf you can see where you are going, and don't have to worry that you are going to bump into anything. If you're deaf you can also wear hearing aids if you want to listen to something, and you can take them off if you wouldn't want to hear anything...

  • I'd rather be deaf than blind .

    I would choose to be deaf because, although I enjoy music and such, there is no way to fix blindness. When you're deaf there are alternatives to things, such as sign language. I enjoy the little things in life such as sunsets and sunrises, and watching my niece grow. Your sight is one of your most used senses and though I cannot personally relate, I fear I would be a nightmare without it.

  • Being Deaf Is Better Than Blind

    Being Blind Would Mean, You Couldn't Do Simple Tasks Without help But If I Was Deaf At Least I Could Still Have Independence If You Say No Then You Would Be Ruining Your Life. I Would 100 Percent Always Pick Being Deaf Over Being Blind. Being Blind Is Giving Away Your Freedom

  • Deaf or blind

    I would rather be deaf because I love to watch tv I mean who doesn't like to watch tv anyways if you can't hear the tv you can put the words on the tv so you can see the words that's all I feel like writing homefulky you chose deaf but god forbid me from being deaf or blind

  • I would rather be deaf.

    Vision is a wonderful sense and so is hearing! But, there is so much beauty in the world, to live in darkness would be my worst fear. With deafness, there is Sign Language one, people can learn and one can still communicate with the outside world, Sign Language is just another language in my mind. So with seeing, you still have the best of both worlds by being able to see and communicate with the outside world..

  • I'd rather be deaf

    Now a blind man may ponder on how horrific his life must be and it wasn't his fault. To lose your sight, you wouldn't be able to simple tasks without the aid of others. Also it would be very difficult to obtain a degree, without a degree, you can't have jobs that have a high income. Now if you don't have that, how will you pay rent? With the little money given, you can't do much. You can't do anything without many years of practice and days filled with sorrow as to why this happened to you.
    Deaf on the other hand, yes it is still inconvenient. However, you can still obtain a degree which can help you make a higher income. You can still perform tasks at hand. You can still participate in athletic activities, you can still see the scenery this amazing world has to offer. I agree with all of your statements.
    Thank you for your time.

  • I'd rather be deaf

    Because losing a sense is worse than anything in the world, but losing your sight? Christ. You also use more of your sight than hearing during the day, for me, I ride my bike around everyday to everywhere. Imaging being me and losing one of my favored Hobby. How would I get to school? How would I be fit?

  • I'd rather be Deaf

    Being born Deaf or blind.. I cannot relate but here is my view of what I would do I lost a sense overnight:

    If I woke up tomorrow profoundly deaf and couldn't hear, I'd probably text my mom/family members in tears, (probably post it on FB. Lol) and drive myself to the hospital to find out more info (since I was born hearing, I obviously speak, but do not read lips well), in the car I'd turn the base on in the car to feel the music, do some research about my new-found condition, finish my homework, go play some soccer to release the tension of the new-found Deafness, and then go with a friend to meet new people at a local Deaf social (I sign already - so my view is biased)... I LOVE LOVE LOVE music, but technically "could" be just fine without music (though I'd be very sad). I would still find a way to experience it (feel/visual)! Contrary to popular belief, human connection is still so very possible for Deaf individuals and they can play, travel and see the world.

    If I woke up legally blind, I can't even promise you I would be able to find my phone. And if I did, would I be able to find the 911 buttons on my modern day touch screen? I could try the new "O.K. Google" thing. It might work to say "O.K. Google, call my mom/or 911." I'm not sure if I could pour myself a bowl of cereal or not, but I might be successful. I'd be frantic and I would probably think I was dying even if I was not.
