why? the person can always remove the cochlear implant later if they want to be a part of deaf culture. in the meantime, giving your child the best advantage for the future by developing neural pathways for hearing is not a bad idea. without the cochlear implant, those neural pathways would not develop or would not be as fully developed if implanted later in life. also hearing with a cochlear implant at a young age helps the child develop better oral communication an avoid the stigma of “deaf speech” as well as develop better phonological awareness and reading skills. Without sufficient support and intervention, many deaf individuals unfortunately only achieve the reading skill level of most fifth graders.
don’t ever make important decisions about your future based on what will make other people happy. they never will be happy and neither will you. decide based on what is realistic and still makes you happy for unselfish reasons. also, you never have to accept what is happening to you; change direction or ask for help.
too each their own i guess, but not for me. i don’t like body hair for myself, but if you want it, you can have mine after i’m done shaving. i also don’t find this photo series that particularly mind bending or conventional beauty redefining. nor does it change my personal views on body hair. it just looks like some decent looking, slightly pierced girls with armpit hair. how bra burning.
