It is FACT that the term "deaf-mute" some users tend to use in wikipedia,
is an offensive term for us in our world. We have language and culture.
Have you ever considered someone as "hearing-mute" in your world, huh? Do
you know what is the synonym of deaf-mute? It is "deaf-and-dumb", which is
pretty self-explanatory. We will be very appreciative if you refrain from
using that term from now on. Please use "Deaf" with D as capital letter
instead to describe or to refer us.

It will make us proud and it will give the idea that it is nothing wrong
with being Deaf.

While I understand your point, Wikipedia is not a soapbox. Furthermore,
'deaf' should not be capitalized as it is an adjective, not
