    Did you know?

    Maybe the kids are bored in school and don't pay attention. I learned in 1st grade that the earth revolves around the sun. My teacher even used foam celestial bodies to show us. I enjoyed that lesson.

    Have you went to any Opening days??

    I've been to lots of opening days at stores. The best one was Sephora, and they gave out lots of free make and make up demonstrations. The best opening day was for the new New York Cosmos soccer team. I got to see Pele although he didn't play, he was a guest of honor. That was cool. The...

    Which AD'er are you wondering about?

    I wonder how that Aussie boy is doing, the one who kept talking about wanting a girlfriend. I think he said he got a job in America, at a camp or something??

    Furries across the US...

    I don't know why but seeing people dressed up as furry animals scares me, makes me uncomfortable. I don't mean like at Disney World or at a children's party, but when adults dress up and take on the persona of the animals, it's creepy and makes me nervous. No disrespect to furries.

    A question...is the Cochlear implant made for the hearing or for the deaf?

    I honestly don't worry about our tax money paying for CIs, hearing aids, whatever, because our govt wastes so much money financing wars in other countries, so why not help Americans first. BUT if I wasn't on my father's medical insurance plan, I'd have to pay for my lenses out-of-pocket, and I...

    Obsession on deafness or disability?

    Does "disabled" mean "unable" If that's true, I'm disabled when it comes to seeing clearly. I am unable to read a book without aids. I have trouble sewing. I can't have a job or trade of profession where good eyesight is needed, unless I'm wearing my lenses, and even then, there are some...

    Obsession on deafness or disability?

    Why is disabled a bad word? Disabled means unable to do something. So what. I am visually disabled and without my lenses everything is a blur, so I'm disabled in the visual area. If you are unable to hear, you are disabled in that area. Who turned "disability" into an evil, demeaning word...

    Does a 20 year old have the right to

    I want to get a belly button ring but my parents, especially my mother, went into a fit over the idea. I appreciate the responses. I decided not to do it since I still live at home. Thanks.

    I have a question...

    Thank you, Bebonang. Are there many deaf Native Americans where you live, or are most of the people in your Deaf community white? It doesn't matter, I'm just curious if you have lots of Native people to sign with.
