This is Sgt. Nesmuth your boot camp Drill Instructor! Welcome to boot camp to the future of deaf society! Take your ego hats off now! If you follow the facts and listen, you won't be getting hollered at! Keep your mouth shut and listen to the FIVE THINGS I HAVE TO SAY!
1) DEAF COMMUNITY IS EVOLVING!
Cochlear Devices & the Deaf Community: Hearing Within
The changing deaf culture
2) ORALISM IS HERE TO GROW!
Oral Deaf Education: Teaching deaf children to speak
Today, even children with profound hearing loss can learn to listen and talk through oral deaf education.
3) DEAF COMMUNITY IS BECOMING WELL KNOWN FOR EATING UP THEIR ROLE MODELS AND LEADERS!
Is Deaf University President Not 'Deaf Enough'?
Crab Theory Rears Its Ugly Head Again
4) PARENTS ARE REALLY NOT GOING TO LISTEN TO THE DEAF COMMUNITY ON HOW TO RAISE DEAF BABIES!
Cochlear implants take children out of the silent world
Deaf Children’s Rights
5) MUCH RESEARCH FUNDING IS GOING TO BE SPENT ON FINDING A CURE FOR DEAFNESS!
Genetic 'cure' found for deaf mice
An end to deafness? New professor's research looks to ear drops, stem cells
THESE ARE THE FACTS!
THEY ARE HAPPENING WHETHER THE DEAF COMMUNITY LIKES IT OR NOT!
Have a nice trip through boot camp.
The links you provided are for body part repairs like fixing or restoring hearing loss.ReplyDelete
How can you fix something that is internal like "Deaf Within?" The Deaf Mind within includes, deafhood, deaf identity and deaf pride and etc.?
This is not something you can decipher by saying we will fix or restore your hearing and then the changed world is back to normal. When you have the Deaf identity (The Deaf Mind) inside and that is more powerful than just assuming that they need to have their ear parts fixed.
The most powerful inner core that makes up “DEAF” beings (The Deaf Mind) is made up with a certain traits that earned through the Deaf experience and nothing else.
Not many people can understand this because they do not have that “Deaf” (The Deaf Mind) experience and this is what separates the DEAF from deaf.
The deaf wants their hearing fixed and will agree majority with your links you posted; however, the DEAF Mind will not agree because of the Deaf flame is already lit inside them and will not succumb to any form of cure or restoration of hearing.
It may sound absurd, again, this is what I mean, and you need the Deaf experience in order to understand the entire being, (The Deaf Mind).
Well all these things are being suggested, but I don't see many 'cures' happening as yet ! what undermines the deaf community, is the deaf not anyone else. Addressing 'deafness' and its implication has always happened. For the deaf adult it's no change, they have the means to refuse to participate. Whether the deaf community is evolving is a debate in itself, all you have suggested is a complete fragmentation of it is happening and it's unapposed...ReplyDelete
UGH! JUST GO TO HELL!ReplyDelete
Thank you for your piece. I always encourage feedback like yours.
Theres 2 schools for the deaf kids in Orange County. Taft and San Marino.
Taft is probably the last of the deaf culture elementary schools in the southland.
San Marino is very different.
The students at San Marino are being reared in an oral environment devoid of sign language. The students there are almost like hearing students. They have no sense of 'The Deaf Mind' and most of them want nothing to do with it either.
There is no 'DEAF flame' in them.
Some of these kids went to our Coldstone Ice Cream Socials and you can actually see it on their faces that they want nothing to do with the deaf community.
Why would they go to the deaf social if they want nothing to do with deaf people?ReplyDelete
Because we didn't advertise it as a 'deaf social' in the flyers handed out at the school.ReplyDelete
There is a compromise here and this is what David Eberwein has mentioned in many of his vlogs. The compromise is DeafHood and the process of being can take place also there is no need for them to drop their identity. They can be an oralist and participate in the Deaf world which is a very good thing because it enables both worlds to unite.ReplyDelete
Eberwein has also explained that DeafHood is about inclusion of various of hearing loss. This is better than being divided and being united is the best interest of DeafHood.
In this point, DeafHood concept is the correct path to follow.
I think this is so STUPID!ReplyDelete
DE can rant all about 'inclusion' he wants to but does the deaf community really understand what 'inclusion' means? I THINK NOT.ReplyDelete
Ask Dr Rachel Stone if she understood what it means when she was the Super of CSDR.
Ask the Gallaudet protesters if they understood what 'inclusion' means.
Take a look at the Ohio school for the deaf and see the opposition in merging a deaf school with a school for the blind.
The deaf community, particularly the ASL extremists in power, never understood what 'inclusion' means and never wanted to either.
Ahh you underestimate what deaf people understand. Of course they do. What's your real view of deaf people's intelligence?ReplyDelete
You'd have to walk in both shoes to understand and I don't think you have.
It don't even take a rocket scientist to estimate their understanding by looking at their actions.ReplyDelete
DEAF MILITARY?? BECAREFUL DEAF NAVY USA WILL GET YOU TO BOOTS CAMP ????ReplyDelete
This article has been written by a guy that constantly leapfrogs between pro-Deaf statements and Anti-Deaf statements.
Richard, if you were writing from the perspective of somebody that has just "accepted" his/her perceived notions of how things truly are for the Deaf community, then you are totally foolish & ignorant.
Richard, if you are writing from the perspective of somebody that is just plain ignorant, then you need to understand that you never had a "Deaf Self".
Those that are "flaming Deaf", they are so as a result of the oppression that they have experienced- nothing more.
If you want to sit by yourself and do bukkae, jerk off to porno videos, be an asshole, and the such- then you are welcome to do so.
At least please just have the decency to shut the hell up and stop being such an anus.
BS all you want dude. It's going to bite you all back.ReplyDelete
I have seen that Deaf Education with ASL program has improved greater than 1970's & 1980's. There were a very small group of educated Deaf people in twenty or thirty years ago. Today, the number of educated Deaf people who uses ASL is growing. Can you explain to that?ReplyDelete

Hey Anonymouses, Obviously, you all are real coward for hiding your desk and typing the keyboards without real ID. Disgust!! Let's facing your real ID. Anti-Deaf people are definitely Nazi/Evil minded! God did make the deaf kids on the earth. AG Bell Association is Evil Empire, it was founded by Satan.ReplyDelete
