A more pertinent query: why has the father not asserted his reaction to his wife and other children behaviour?
i'm curious to know your answer to this? im still interested in your answer to my first question to you.
aside: the Canadian Hearing Society/Toronto has courses/discussions: Dealing/coping with YOUR Hearing loss. Being "helpless" is NOT of their suggestions. I have taken their courses back in the nineties. Even part of a York University/CHS study on how one "uses their courses in real life. Duly published in the Journal of Aural rehabilation.
They also stressed it is up to YOU how YOU interact in the above mentioned circumstance. "helpless"?
This is one of the bitter ironies we DEAF face with the hearies. On one hand it is claimed and screamed it is "Your" hearing loss", or deal with "YOUR" hearing ,impairment, Its "your" this , its "Your that. Fine. And we accept that with open arms. When we do so by sign, contrary to the vile scent of superiority hearies take in flapping their lips, when we accept "our" GIFT rather then your "loss" by teaching sign to DEAF or wanting sign recognized for what it is. When we seek to be left to sign amongst ourself for signing sakes amidst our signs, with those who sign and wish to sign with their children, whom seek to learn sign...........
(taps cigarette on table leans forward)
Which, may it always be remembered we still have, in spite the hearing world obsession at its eradication. When we do just what you claim we should, deal with "YOUR hearing Loss"
Well then what do we have here?
what is the hearies reply?
(pause, turns away to light cigarette, exhales......)
Your hearing, or your "loss" or our GIFT doesn't exist in a vacuum. Even more so in a family. Where you have Deaf amongst a very cruel hearing environment where in this case, loved ones take advantage of the "loss" of hearing by one of there own and thus mock him and worse. and will eventually lead into worse. it always does. you only ask a why to the victims response and nothing to motives of the aggressors.
I teach martial arts 6 days a week. i deal with "helpless" on a regular basis. We here are dealing with a victim and an aggressor. You only focus on the victims reaction to the aggressor here. and between strangers on the street or where ever. i cede thats an ok take. But this is a family. As such the rules of engagement and response are very different. The aggressor here are loved ones. you ask why this man just takes it.......the abuse......th e mocking.......at the hands of audist family......i can answer that with allot of answers for you, but i want to know why you think he does.
aside: I have made no study on why SOME hearing persons interact in such manner.
its time too,
Yes indeed. its fairly a wild idea to connect one ideology based on the superiority of one race to another "racism", to that of another ideology and way of acting "adusim" which rests on the view of the superiority of those with the sense of hearing to those who are "lacking" or are termed "disordered" in that sense to another..I don't connect "racist" to "audism".
Further still, i didn't connect racism to audism. I was pointing out that one doesn't need to be an adherent in thinking or ideology of any given system of philosophy or school of political thought to still be acting in ways that propagate it, or simply act motivated by a conscious or subconscious conviction of it.
I didnt connect racism to audism YOU did. Which was the purpose of my point.
Interesting that London-OP hasn't made much comment on subsequent thoughts.
Await his conclusion after requesting others' thought.
If you didn't want to be asked your thoughts you shouldn't of came blabbering into this thread. The above is not mutually exclusive. I await both the ops thoughts and yours. its after all a discussion forum.
Good day sir
