Would you rather be blind or deaf if you had no choice but to choose between the two?

What's it going to be? You have to choose between being either blind or being deaf.

I personally would choose being deaf because you would be able to see and you'd still be able to communicate through Sign Language and other communication.

  • I know a lot of deaf people and it is easier for them to adjust than it is for a blind person.

  • I'd rather be deaf. Although I would miss music a LOT, overall quality of life is better being able to see and not hear vs vice versa

  • Deaf because medical science has many more possibilities to correct that :D
    And I think it would be easier to deal with than having to miss your sight :o

  • Deaf. There are hearing aids for the deaf.

    I've met people who can cope with being deaf quite easily (not that people CAN'T come with blindness,) I just think it'd be horrible to deal with.

  • Sight is really the most important sense we have... nothing is comparable to vision

    You need to make it more drastic... would you live with no limbs or no sight? That's more comparable

  • As much as it would suck to be blind, i couldn't afford to be deaf, because it'd be so hard to maintain relationships without being able to communicate efficiently. Yes, i know that there is sign language, but honestly, it'd be hard to find people who would be willing to learn sign language just so they could communicate with me.

    But if I go blind, I won't be able to see changing profile photos of @XNicholeMariex3. I will need an eternity to figure this one out.

    • They can feel the vibrations from music.

    • Show All
    • You'd have to ask someone who was once hearing, but lost their hearing later on. Personally, I don't think it would really be the same. Although, for those who have been deaf all their life, they know no difference. :)

    • yea you got a point but with the invention of Cochlear Implants people can still hear but i don't know of any invention that is a sure way 2 see after going blind or this question based on if none of that existed? but i think sight would be a better choice seeing as you have more.. ability's then with being death plus i like looking at pretty girls :p

  • I'm actually hearing impaired in one ear. Really, this is just a terrible poll, but I'm not offended. You can't choose to have an impairment or disability, you should be more sensitive.

    • I actually stated in my question "(I apologize in advance if this is offensive to anyone. This was asked out of curiosity, not out to offend. Thank you!)"
      I have been taking Sign Language for 3 years and I am currently taking a Sign Language course in college.
      I am aware that you cannot "choose" in real life what impairment or "disability" and individual can have.
      I am actually quite surprised someone took offense to this. I am also known for making really nonsensical polls on this site. If my polls in general do not make any sense, maybe perhaps you should take things more lightly. Take it as a grain of salt, I beg of you.

    • I'm not, its a 3/10 rating poll. I'm actually known to give more objective opinions and I don't take things personally. From Syrian war to race and disability I'm not surprised the lack of sensitivity from some users of Gag, because it doesn't effect them personally. Knowing sign language doesn't give you experience points either, I don't know sign because its not that severe.

    • I am aware it doesn't give me "experience points" but it also doesn't mean I don't know anything about deafness. Stating "you should be more sensitive" sure sounds like you were offended... but OKAY miss holier-than-thou.
      Yeah, sometimes I can be a bitch, but you aren't so peachy yourself. You need to stop taking things so hard up the ass. My question was not even offensive. Get over yourself.
