There are those that get mad at it, yes.
Oh, just btw... this all started when I re-saw that video of the new born baby on YouTube that got the cochlear implants and could suddenly hear, and it was VERY obvious how happy it was. There was a huge contingency of people that got MAD that the baby got the surgery... citing that he was perfect just how he was, and that it is OFFENSIVE that people felt the need to "correct" is impairment.
