The struggles and advantages that deaf people will understand.

Posted on

3. Continuing to Speak to you

Once you told them you can't hear but they didn't care and continue on speaking to you. Like seriously...please shut up once I tell you I CAN'T HEAR YOU AT ALL.

5. When you caught someone staring at you signing...

This often happened in restaurants, fast food restaurants, store, mall...well pretty much EVERYWHERE. You will always catch someone staring at you while you're talking in sign language...

6. People are kind of afraid of our gestures.

Every time we do gestures to hearing people and they seemed like mind blown at our gestures. Like they don't really understand the obvious gestures.

7. Not able to know what everyone is laughing about...

At family gatherings, when everyone is laughing about something funny. I'm just like what's so funny? Nobody is able to tell us what's funny... Ok great, I'm out.

8. The peaceful sound... NO SOUND... So Peaceful...

We're so glad that we don't have to listen the screaming, thunder, crying, yelling, and any such annoying sounds. So quiet...so peaceful...

10. The ability to talk about someone while they don't know what we are saying...

You talk about us without us knowing what you're saying....well we do the same thing in sign language. You may watch us talk but you'll not be able to understand us. Fair enough!

11. Sign language is mind blown to hearing people...

Signing is a mind blown to people... A lot of gesture and body action... MIND BLOWN. Like wow what did you just do?! Um we do sign language... WOW!

13. We don't need to be fixed. We're PERFECTLY FINE!

People suggesting us to get hearing aids or cochlear implants....PLEASE!!! We are happy of who we are... If we want them, we'll decide ourselves. Not you. Thank you very much!
