      @Milmut How about the fact you're communicating right now without speaking?

      I have extreme social anxiety along with a medical problem that both contributing prevent me from speaking to anyone but immediate family. If you would rather be blind than unable to talk, you're just a privileged sonofa with too many fake friends and too little time spent reading/studying/making real relationships.

      oh so they're using the old english definition of dumb rather than the modern definition. anyhow if i were "dumb" i could still type this message and see cool stuff. I can just get a robot voice that speaks for me

      If it's just blind vs can't speak, this is definitely the best choice. If it was blind vs deaf on the other hand, I would definitely choose blind. It's so much safer!

      @setrakakan Aggressive much? I'm merely pointing out that I've never associated "dumb" with "mute", as evident with a lot of the voters who chose blind over dumb. I read the description, I'd still rather be blind than not be able to speak.

    Can I just note that "dumb" is a really offensive term, which has been used to oppress a lot of people, especially Deaf persons. And regardless of what the info section says the term should not have been used since the intended meaning hasn't been commonly used that way for years. The person who submitted the question should have said "would you rather be unable to see or unable to speak." Then it wouldn't be offensive and everyone would know exactly what was meant.
