Is this true? In another post of mines, there's a discussion about how deaf students at Gallaudet who use ASL to communicate discriminate against deaf students who communicate orally? I'm asking this because I've only been around hearing people. I've never really got to get involved with the Deaf community. In April, there is an opportunity for me to finally get involved but I don't want to face this kind of judgement & discrimination for communicating the only way I know how...pretty much all my life I was judged & discriminated for being hearing impaired by hearing people so that'd be pretty sad to finally get involved with people like myself and then to be judged & discriminated again. I'd feel like I wouldn't fit anywhere if that happened. I am not trying to offend anyone, by the way. I just need to know.
