Discusses the issues behind determining accurate numbers of Deaf people as opposed to people who lost hearing later in life (hard of hearing or deafened); clarification of some Deaf terminology; questions WHY in spite of a potentially very large Deaf community worldwide, there continues to be a struggle to RECOGNIZE Deaf people do have a community.

Discusses the Oralism/Mask of Benevolence’s powerful grip on media in framing society’s thinking about Deaf people and their issues — confusing them about Deaf people as individuals vs as a community. Also, Oralism colonialism damaged Deaf organizations’ abilities to be Deaf-centered, confident, independent from the Mask of Benevolence.
