Then dont bring it up but you cant tell others what to do. If the person they are referring to doesnt like it, then let HER tell them.

This is what happens when others try to control what others say or do. The outcome is usually not good. Other ADers have done it and all it does it make things worse.

Just a word of advice...never tell others what to say or what not to say unless it is about yourself.

Then, why didnt you say "educate others about my son". Why did you say "educate about those who are d/Deaf"?

When you said that, knowing you meant your son, only...that's fine but the problem is...none of us can read your mind. We read what is written and you didnt write that you were talking about your son only. Now, can you take some of that responsibility for what you write instead of blaming it all on some of us?

In fact I know otherwise. It has always been my goal to empower people. To encourage them to embrace that which makes them unique and to celebrate it.

In terms if the bolded statement above, I've never been on "that side of the stick", but I can tell you it sure isn't fun being shot down at every corner. Being labeled something that rocks me to my core.

I've never had any interest in putting people down. It doesn't make me feel
good to hurt people, and being an empathetic person I often can feel others
pain. So I wouldn't want to be on either end of "that stick".

I don't like the fact that there are ignorant, mean, vicious people out there. I can't do anything about that.

What I can do is make sure I live my life with an open mind, open heart, and open arms. In the mean time, help educate as many people as I can to give them better understanding and respect for those that are d/Deaf.
Not just you but to many many others who have done that.

You have a choice of not being at the end of the stick. For many of us, due to oppression, we are contanstly put on that end of the stick. When people make inacurrate statements about ASL, Deaf culture, and Deaf education, we speak up and then again, this crap happens.

This is a belief that has no basis in fact.

Man kind has been around for a few million years. It was not until the Roman times, Just before Jesus, that the Romans started making laws to govern every day human activity.

This is an urban legend promulgated by people who want others to do as they are told to do.

What constitutes "acting like an adult" varies considerably from culture to culture and within cultures.

When I was a kid I learned that standard middle class white people went to a party where people took turns talking and listening. You did not raise your voice and you only moved your hands when you sipped your martini.

While at the Italian party everyone talked at once, quite loudly, and if you could not follow at least three conversations at once you were considered either childish or retarded.

At the Black party people would be loud, jump from one conversation to another and would cat call, insult, or flame each other -- And if you weren't verbally skilled enough to handle the situation without resorting to Mommy, Daddy, the government, police, or your fists, you were not considered ready to stand up in adult society.

And the latinos -- To hell with talking -- Where is the music. We Are Here To DANCE!

Don't tell me how to act like an adult in MY house.

BTW I am old enough not to give a damn about my maturity or my adult hood. It is there whether I like it or not. I WILL get right down on the floor and play with my toys.

Don't invite me to your house unless you are willing to let me be myself.

This is why I cant fully socialize with my husband's family members at gatherings or parties. All that jumping from one conversation to another is a detriment to my deafness so instead of trying to get them to accodomate my needs, I just sit there quietly. I am sure they think I am weak. lol

I find that very interesting.
I don't know where you live but in the real world it happens all the time.

The other day I had a scrawny tattooed guy and his fat friend threaten to beat the hell out of me at the gas station -- Why? I moved my car so a woman could get by me and HE felt I had moved out of the line.

I didn't see anyone there to prevent them from doing it except me and I sure as hell wasn't going to run.

A lady yelled profanities at me on the lightrail because I didnt move when she said "Excuse me". One of these days I am gotta get beaten to a pulp for not being able to hear others say "Excuse me."

OB, I didnt see your posts until Berry quoted them.

No disrespect, but the comment about people walking up to others and being disrespectful not being allowed and how it supposedly happens here on this forum. Um...I have to disagree. What happens here really is due to people coming here who make inaccurate statements, another tells them that it is not correct, then the person gets defensive, and then the brawl starts.

It does happen that way in real life. That's how arguments happen between people.

Nobody here is "walking" up to an ADer out of the blue and name call them for no reason. I took behavior principles classes and trainings. There is always an ancedote to the behavior by rational people.

Just my two cents.

I have no interest in reading your dissertation, as the above post indicates that you have difficulty in discerning the difference between reality and pretense, as you are pretending to be a psychologist and are pretending to practice clinical psychology.

You communicate quite effectively with your son? It may appear to be so, on the surface, but until you begin to see things from his perspective, there will continue to be many gaps in communication. Full on sign language such as represented in ASL (Auslan, BSL and so forth) is the only means by which you can reach full communication and understanding with a Deaf child or adult.

BTW, this is coming from an deaf adult born severely-deaf, raised fully oral, mainstreamed, the only deaf in my family and environmment - who is now Deaf using sign language and voice-off. It is for the very reasons above. I could never be 'hearing', because my perspective was Deaf from the beginning.

Thanks for the thought.

But... My son is not "oral" and we don't have any communication barriers. Hearing aids on or off, we communicate effectively and with ease.

Same here and I agree. I became deaf when I was two years old, and in the beginning I had no choice but try to be hearing. I have been trying that for most of my adult life as well, and when I took a good hard look at the results, all the problems and bs entailed in that, I started to become Deaf. I was Deaf all along and only needed to realize it at long last.
