Somehow, I came across this blog, The Ear of my Heart. I enjoy this blog because she does a lot of vlogs in ASL, AND she adds a transcript for the "sign-impaired". Awesome blog.
Anyways, in her recent post, she talked about CI vs. Deaf community. I must say, she was right on the spot. Basic philosophy of why the Deaf Community "rejects" CI users is Deaf people don't want to hear. CI users want to hear. It has nothing to do with whether CI users want to learn ASL, want to get involved in the deaf Community, or they don't want to get involved for whatever reason.
