    Crush on a hearing co-worker??

    I just like to have your thoughts on this... I'm deaf, and there is this handsome hearing guy at work I am attracted to. We haven't talked much to each other but he knows ASL previously before I started working with him, although I'm shy to ask how much he knows. There are body language hints...

    Surprise Signing

    So I work in retail and ever since I’ve been learning BSL (from my Deaf coworker) I’ve gotten to know her friends and people in the area who are D/deaf or HoH. I have also signed to two other D/deaf customers in the store who my coworker doesn’t know and they were both really shocked that I was...

    Trying to better understand Deaf culture - and what the Hearing can do to be more inclusive - as a designer

    Hello, I'm an industrial designer and just got hired to make a product with the goal of helping people who are deaf or HOH. Based on my research so far I'm beginning to think designing a "product for the deaf" is the wrong way of looking at it and maybe creating a "product for the Hearing, to...

    Can someone explain what a deaf person is "supposed to look like"?

    It seems like a lot of people here (including myself) has experienced someone telling them that they don't look deaf, HoH, or like they have hearing loss. I'm just curious if there is some stereotypical way people with any type of deafness are supposed to look like and how that stereotype came...

    Hearing aids and amplifiers don't work for me?

    I am HoH. The little I can hear is very distorted so I usually make use of lip reading but lip reading can be hard bc it's more like feeling in the blanks and making an educated guess to what they might be saying. The distoration does not get better even when louder. ENT said they will not help...

    Nice to meet you guys!

    Hello everyone! I was recently introduced to ASL through a friend during the summer of 2017. During that time I practiced (almost religiously, without consistency/persistence a language cannot be learned). Most of the time was spent doing individual research and practicing fingerspelling/word...

    Diagnosis

    Last week, I finally went to an Audiologist and took multiple hearing tests and finally got a diagnosis. I have been diagnosed with 'Congenital Hearing Loss'. The doctor told me that I was born with it, but I had completely known what it was. Being a pre-Med student, I have prior knowledge in...

    Hello!

    Hello there! I go by Snowy or Shrug online a lot. I tried to find rules to see if this was a dDeaf and HoH only community, but I didn't find any such thing. I'm 24, and while I am Hearing, I hope I can at least respectfully observe, if not participate. I have a few reasons. The original reason...

    Regionals for quiz bowl...

    Today, I'm competing against other schools to see who goes forward to state and as some of you would already infer, it's very difficult to hear the questions, especially from moderators who aren't experienced as others. So when me and my teammates ask them to repeat the question and they say no...
