      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Deaf Community feels that cochlear implants are a threat to Deaf Culture because they believe that cochlear implants promote the idea that being deaf is a disability that needs to be fixed. They argue that Deaf Culture is a rich and vibrant community with its own language (sign language) and traditions, and cochlear implants may undermine this cultural identity by encouraging individuals to assimilate into the hearing world. Additionally, some Deaf individuals may feel that cochlear implants prioritize hearing and communication with the hearing community over embracing and celebrating their deaf identity.
