Welcome! I am deaf like you. We are about the same age. I get teased for being deaf alot when I was in school. I do not have speaking ability so I know how you feel.

:welcome:, Marie. Sorry you were teased about being deaf. I was teased about being so handsome. :eek: :fingersx::rolleyes: (crossed fingers to hide a lie--not an "R" :mrgreen: ). I guess we all have our crosses to bear.

Nice to meet you, and that's the truth. :yesway::yesway:

There is one for any jokes about Hearies that you may have.... You can always use that one... Or create your own thread.

I'm a hearie and want to learn more about ASL and Deaf culture. But I promise I wont tease you about being deaf. Sorry to hear you got teased.

ah, ok! good! glad you are wanting to learn about Deaf Culture. Some of us deafies like being tapped on the shoulder, flashing lights in a room to get our attention , or stomp on the floor. All various ways to get a deaf person's attention. i was taught MSE, SEE, and ASL. i also was taught to speak. i still have the deaf accent.
