Audism

Last night at the bar, several friends and I were chatting till we fell onto this topic: Audism. For those who never heard the word before, it means a notion that one is superior based on one’s ability to hear or behave in the manner of one who hears. It also means implying stereotyping that deaf people cannot be successful or cannot drive a car. We had a great discussion and I feel like I want to do something so I went to the wikipedia to see if there was an article on audism. There was one but it needed some work and editing so I worked on it.
