Facepalm! This has to stop this nonsense as you all hearing people don't accept
us being deaf/hard of hearing. We had gone through that road before and it is not helping us none at all. Why keep up when we are trying to explain or reason with you, hearing people, that we are frustrated not understanding spoken English language or any other spoken languages (other countries). You all can not make us hearing like you want us to be hearing. This is what make us mad at hearing society for putting us suffering through mainstream school (oral only) just because they don't accept us being deaf. We need ASL to be able to understand what we want to sign. If someone like you don't know how to sign, then all you have to do is write down notepad to communicate. Also lipreading is not any better either as it is hard to lipread and have to make the person repeat again until we catch what you are saying. We are very much like to be in the Deaf world than being in the hearing world. As for job, no one want to hire us because they don't want to provide special accommodations like TDD (Telecommunication Device for the Deaf) or flashing lights to let us know there was a phone ringing and to provide some sign language interpreters so that we can understand in the meetings and conversing with hearing boss and other workers. Trying to be in the hearing world is not easy at all. You all are not helping to let us be the way we are. We will always be DEAF (I am screaming to let you know that we are deaf period) for the rest of our lives. Don't do that to us.
