    Kicking a Christian out for... being a Christian?

    I was reading the papers this morning and read about an incident that happened in a nearby college. This college is notoriously liberal. The college had a society that meets to talk about the latest scientific advancements and evidence that supports the theory of evolution. A Christian man...

    Advice: Come out as gay or bi?

    A bit of background information about me: I'm bisexual. I've known this since high school. I've dated only men because I am able to have a relationship with them, love them, and be attracted to them, and I've always told myself that it's easier living life this way than living the gay life...

    Stigma of deaf schools?

    I’ve been thinking about this for a while. It’s been discussed many times in AD why hearing parents have chosen certain paths (oralism, CI, TC, SEE, etc.) for their deaf children. Audism, selfishness, laziness, importance of English, better opportunities, enhancement of spoken skills, and “ASL...

    Here is the situation: A man in my workplace has made jokes/comments/remarks about gay people. I personally have never heard them. One coworker complained about something he said in regards to gay people last year. Don't remember what he said. Another coworker, call him "Bob," has heard the...

    Highlighting Deafness in One's Achievements

    This is a spinoff from another thread. (Thanks to DeafCaroline for the title!) Some people don't like the fact that their deafness are pointed out when stating their achievements. Example: "She made the honor roll, despite her deafness." On one hand, it can be perceived that being...

    What happens when you don't know where your CI/HA is at all times....

    I was working out yesterday and took off my CI to go running outside in the heat. I put it in my gym bag. After getting home from working out, I found out that my CI is not in my gym bag. The gym was closed by the time I realized it. I figured that it fell out in the gym locker that I was using...

    If I were president, what would they say about me?

    I was thinking.. "What if I were the next President? What would people say about me if they didn't like me?" - "People voted for her only because she's a woman/Hispanic/deaf." - "Her parents are from Cuba. She is totally a communist." - "One of her friends from high school was caught doing...

    Another reason why I hate FOX news

    I do watch FOX news (along with CNN and BBC) to get a somewhat balanced news from this incredibly divisive world. However, because I watch multiple news, I've noticed so many things wrong with FOX news. This is a PERFECT example: Aliens Could Attack Earth To End Global Warming, NASA...

    Lifeprint

    I know Lifeprint has been mentioned several times on AD, but I didn't realize that they had videos of classes! I was looking for a type of curriculum to teach my gf some ASL (the ASL classes they offer here don't align with her work schedule). I wanted to have some sort of structure to teach her...

    Gaming Rage?

    Has anyone ever gotten really upset while playing video games? Perhaps not as upset as that German kid*. I know I've yelled and cursed at the TV quite a few times. Make me feel better by letting me know that I'm not the only one! * For those who do not know what I am talking about...

    New Boots!

    This is one of my favorite jokes, and it is best told in person, but couldn't resist sharing with you all!!! An old man buys a pair of new cowboy boots. He went home to his wife and couldn't wait to show them off. He puts them on and goes into the kitchen where his wife is busy cooking dinner...

    Racial Wealth Gap...

    BBC News - Downturn widens racial wealth gap "It found the median wealth of white US households in 2009 was $113,149 (£69,000), compared with $6,325 for Hispanics and $5,677 for blacks. " I am still trying to wrap my head around those really low numbers. At first I thought they included...

    A opinion about Christians whining about same sex marriage

    Ask An Atheist » Christian Privilege: Not Being Allowed to Dominate Others Doesn’t Mean You’re Being Oppressed. I thought this article/blog was a good read. I especially liked this part: "If someone else is allowed to marry their same-sex partner, the anti-gay marriage advocate is affected...

    Signing Names of Movies

    I was thinking about what is the "right" way to sign the names of movies (or books, for that matter)? Correct me if I am wrong, but names should be fingerspelled (unless there is a special sign for them). So when it comes to the name of movies, do people do signs or fingerspell the whole...

    Ever talk to yourself?

    I admit it.. I talk to myself sometimes while I am driving to/from work. I have these little conversations in my head and don't realize that I am actually moving my lips and making facial gestures. Also, sometimes I practice my fingerspelling by picking words on a billboard as I drive by and...
