    On the defense?

    Well, if my question was originally worded incorrectly then ok. I had no intentions of being negative about this thread and I just wanted to know about a few things. But that's fine. I'll close out my account and not talk here again. I've never had so many people act like this to a simple...

    On the defense?

    I see most people have already singled me out as an idiot hearing person who is here for a study.... I've also only seen a handful of people who read the original post react non-defensively. My question was literally do you feel defensive. It has nothing to do with being deaf. If you feel...

    I honestly don't know. I'd like to hope not.

    On the defense?

    Thanks for being rude and disrespectful where I'm trying to be nice. Shows a lot of compassion and intelligence on your part.

    On the defense?

    I've tried to, however, I don't want to really push them away even further since it seems the fact that I can hear is what makes them feel like already against them. I mean, jeez, I'm looking up stuff online to try to understand this culture better and to be apart of it the best way a hearing...

    On the defense?

    No one was generalized in my statement. I even said that it's not just Deaf/HOH people. I'm defensive about plenty of things. I'm just asking if people here feel like they have become more defensive over time and if it has to do with the communication boundry that people run into. I'm a...

    On the defense?

    I've found the few people that I've tried to talk to who are Deaf/HOH are automatically defensive about literally anything. You can ask how they are and they'll reply like I just smacked them in the face. A lot of people are naturally defensive from life experiences, it's not just a...

    On the defense?

    As a Deaf/HOH person do you constantly feel like you're on the defense or that you automatically react defensively in any social situation?

    THAT makes a sound!??!?

    You can also hear the muscus kinda gurggling(sp?) in the sinuses. Plus most people are nose breathers. You start breathing out of your mouth and it's usually a good sign your stuffed up

    Del. pediatrician gets life for abusing patients

    It's amazing how long it takes things like this to finally come to light. 80+ victims had to happen before someone finally listened to these kids or finally had the courage to come forth and say something. It takes a lot of strength to endure something like this, live with it, and then repeat it...

    Dog mourned the death of Navy Seal

    This was the sweetest thing. I saw this yesterday and came really close to crying. Has anyone seen the movie Hachi? Same thing in that movie basically and it was based true story. Dogs are just the sweetest creatures....hence why I'm a dog person. Semper Fi Meaghan E. Wolfe

    Deaf culture - do's and don'ts, etc. Let's make a list!

    I like this list. It's definalty enlightening in some aspects. Most of these things, like not yelling or throwing things or banging on tables I would already not be doing but the tapping thing I didn't think about. I naturally do that with people I know or if I'm trying to get by someone so they...
