Audist are not welcome
That's quite the story Kokonut. I think that is the key to it all- teaching students how to not only stand up for themselves, but how to physically defend themselves. All it takes is one incident like you and DeafBajaGal described, and people will know not to mess with the person.
Easier said than done. There was no way I could beat up the girl who was twice my size. Also, it wasnt in me to get physical with others.
