What hearing parent is against sign? Certainly none around here.It has nothing to do with culturally Deaf's attitude. I'm not even talking about that. I'm talking about if we should stop advocating ASL to hearing parents since they seem to me that they get upset about it. Especially when we don't advocate oral-only. I'm asking HEARING parents if they think it should reserved to culturally deaf only.. I'm not asking culturally deaf people but they are more than welcome to pitch in their opinion.
Nope. My family is very active in our local Deaf community. They are open, supportive and loving. The opposite of so much that I find online.you lie
lol - I know exactly why ya'all are at FJ... but for wrong reason. You overlook the fact that FJ's child does know ASL and does get involved with deaf people and deaf activities. And she's also learning how to talk. There's nothing wrong with that.
FJ's motive is not even about L1/L2 or bad English writing associated with ASL as L1. I believe Miss Kat is doing just fine and is coping with it just fine. Based on her posts - FJ is not interested in raising her child as a culturally-deaf person. Why? We've seen all kinds of negative things from deaf culture. Let's admit it. On big picture - they're immature and dramatic. It saddens me. LEVEL!
Well, I would agree that it seems very cruel to require a child to use auditory means to communicate and then take away the tools they need to be able to understand the language around them.I can understand that, but it depends, afterall some people did think my parents were abusive when I didn't have my hearing aids fix for a long time.
That's your opinion, so what?just kidding! I ain't letting you off the hook yet! nananana!
