Hearing Aids, etc.

Those commercials and advertisements for hearing aids that are supposed to be impossible for people to see are irritating. They assume all customers would be ashamed to need hearing aids. I assume the people who make those ads think any special need is something to be ashamed of.
Well, they're wrong.
I've seen many instances where people with various disabilities were told they needed to improve their attitudes, confess sins, or increase their faith and then the disabilities would go away, as if only bad people have conditions like that.
The people who say such things are not only wrong, they're rude and unkind.
While nobody chooses to have a condition that limits their lifestyle, those who have them are still perfectly valuable human beings and deserve to be treated with respect.
