No. Being deaf or blind does not make you a retard.

Not that I care but part of the definition of a retard is, "a person who is stupid, obtuse, or ineffective in some way" being deaf is ineffective. So yes technically he is.
I got that from if you think im full of shit.
Sorry SigFig Intermission is right.

Terminator is correct, technically being blind/deaf makes you a retard. Retard in french means "late" or "held back" anyone with any disability may be referred as being "retarded". It's society that has bastardised the meaning of the word to having the connotations that the person is mentally deficient or stupid.

I'd prefer a medical definition rather than some loose interpretation of's definition of retarded.

I only say this because I made the mistake of referring to deafness as a retardation to friends in the medical community and I was served an earful as to why I was incorrect -- something along the lines of blindness and deafness being impairments, not retardations.

Also - Matt's comment about retard strength is associated with mentally retarded people having odd levels of physical strength, and blindness and deafness are definitely not mental retardations...

Matter of semantics, I suppose. Just don't tell someone in the medical field that a blind/deaf person is retarded...
