The truth about me, Fuzzy...
I am sick and tired of certain people spreading vicious lies about me
to suit their own agenda, making them look like "oh, poor, abused me"
while making me look like some fascist audist while I am NOT.
I was always of an opinion that:
- deaf babies should be allowed to SIGN freely
- parents of deaf children should learn sign language ASAP
- deaf children should be able to learn sign language and speech equally
- deaf babies, children, teens, adults should never ever be denied an access to their natural means of communication which is a SIGN LANGUAGE
- deaf babies, children, teens, adults should be given an equal opportunity to learn speech and written English
- because studies shown without slightest doubt that early CI implantation yields the best results, the deaf babies should be implanted early BUT
these babies should receive an equal access to SIGN LANGUAGE, deaf community and deaf culture at THE SAME TIME.
does that require more work? too bad!
- Ci is a tool only, not an indoctrination. it is like a H-A - just a TOOL.
so, use it as tool, not as a means to mass hysteria.
Now, stop spreading your crazy lies about me already.
Educate yourself about my stance on this before you start insulting me with
your unfounded lies.
A 'No' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.
