    "Deaf and Dumb"?

    I did get lots of responses, but none has been answered when I asked those following questions from one of my posts. "What do you think micro-aggression looks like? How can people who commit micro-aggressions be so unaware of their actions? Even if they represent unintentional slights and...

    Which Dog Food?

    I always have fed my dogs raw and bones. They are in good health and great teeth. In my opinion raw and bones is a better choice than any brands out there. It's a personal choice.

    "Deaf and Dumb"?

    Absolutely. Excellent questions. I wish I could answer those question or had the opportunity to ask my professor when I took the class. I think it is possibility that a deaf community could make a negative word like deaf and dumb into something positive. But how do we make it positive? The...

    "Deaf and Dumb"?

    Yes, it is. This focuses on all kinds of people, not just Asian Americans. The author works with Asian Americans and other populations. This is relevant to the "Deaf" and hard of hearing populations too. Why do we always worry about "Political Correctness"? I work with a Hispanic student...

    "Deaf and Dumb"?

    I do know what "dumb" means. I don't think anyone realizes that using the term "Deaf and Dumb" encourages mircoaggressions and mircoinsults. Every deaf person we have had met is a "mute"? Can they speak for themselves? What about hard of hearing and deaf people who have learned how to speak and...
