I have been asked this question time and time again. But I still can't give a straight answer. Its so hard to choose a life that takes away something so precious.

If I where blind I could hear my mothers voice. I could hear music, I could hear the ocean, the noise of the city, the cicadas in summer, the wind rustling the trees, and the rain coming down with all its majesty. But I couldn't SEE it.
I would not know something so beautiful as seeing the sun rise, or the moon high in the sky

If I where Deaf I could the simple things like the beat of a drum, a guitar riff, the laughter for a baby that is happy just to be alive, and the sound of a beautiful voice. I would see the world but what good is it if you can't hear the simple sounds that come with it?

So I ask all of you could you choose one or the other or are you like me who can't see themselves living with out there vision or hearing.

Blind people can't watch subbed anime, so yeah.....I rather be deaf, like a majority of the population.

To me, music is my life. If I went deaf, I wouldn't hope on living the very second it happens. So I'd rather be blind

Both suck, but if I had to choose I'd rather be deaf.

There's far less restriction on what you're able to do
If I suddenly went blind, I don't think that I'd cope very well

I'm already visually impaired (technically, i'm legally blind, though I can still see). The thought of having such poor eyesight along with being unable to hear is actually a big fear of mine when I think about how i'll be in my older age.

Anyway, getting back to the point, I have often pondered this question, and I still haven't come up with a satisfactory answer. I think I might rather be blind though. The richness of sound is something i've come to greatly appreciate ~ so much so that I don't think I could live in a world devoid of sound. The idea of being blind is scary to me, but I think maybe I could get used to that easier than being deaf.

I love art and music... why?! I'd rather have no hands and feet lol But if I had to choose one, I'd choose being deaf. I already trip over everything and I see pretty well, so being blind would just mean I'd be in stitches and casts all the time... I have a horrible sense of direction too.

Deaf, I'm to relient on my vision and it would be easier to figure out not being able to hear then to not be able to see

Blind. I like hearing my own voice, even if everything I say is completely wrong.

Deaf... I'd miss music, but won't have to listen to numb nuts anymore. I could still draw, play video games, watch captions. And it would be easier plugging some future gadget in my brain to make me hear rather than a gadget to make me see.

you can function perfectly without hearing ability. worst case scenario, you'd communicate via writing only or sign language.
w/o vision, you're pretty much screwed. you can still survive, but life will be much harder.

Blind. Hearing is my lifeline.

And everything starts buzzing when it's quiet, and I don't like it.
