from The "Well-adjusted Deaf Person"  by MJ Bienvenu

"I wondered what the term well‑adjusted meant to the speaker, and why he thought Deaf people needed any adjustment. To me, it is typical of the pathological mindset: something is broken and needs fixing. It was also distressing to see this attitude coming from a deaf man. It seems like I am continually reiterating this one point, but like many deaf people, I do not consider myself in need of repair or improvement because of the fact that I am Deaf. Deaf is fine with me!"
