    I feel like this video may be relatable for some and educational for others so i'll leave it here.

I was wondering if anyone else was dealing with both and how they handle it and if there's...

    Can someone explain what a deaf person is "supposed to look like"?

    It seems like a lot of people here (including myself) has experienced someone telling them that they don't look deaf, HoH, or like they have hearing loss.
