    Deaf Compliment?

    I was wondering about that. What about brand new deaf signers? Fluent CODA's? I imagine a CODA who's been around deafies for life would be mistaken for Deaf much quicker than the oral deaf/late-deafened mom who just started ASL 101 last week.

    Deaf Compliment?

    I imagine a lot of late-deafened or deaf people that learn ASL as an adult look "hearing." Is it really that easy to tell if someone is Deaf or hearing from their signing?

    I think this is a bit different from just being like "oh he's deaf" cause she was explaining how to communicate with you.

    "Hearing Impaired" = offensive?

    There's just as much controversy over terminology in the blind community. Some people take issue with the term "visually impaired" for a lot of parallel reasons, like thinking it indicates they have more vision than they do (or any at all if they're total). On the flip side, NFB members who...

    Choosing Not To Speak

    I can totally understand where you're coming from and think it's up to you whether to speak or not. Of course I'd suggest being reasonable too, like using your voice in an emergency or in a time-sensitive situation where signing/writing would take too long.

    "Hearing Impaired" = offensive?

    That makes a lot more sense. Other deaf people get that deafness comes in degrees. Hearing people don't always get that.

    People don't get confused when you say you're deaf but then you can hear some things?
