Something that I am not impressed with and disagree with is the title that you have in here. It turns me off when you said ASL - Cochlear Implant Community that makes us disagree more than ever.
I don't come out here to say "ASL - Hearing Aid Community". That is outrageous for anyone to say this since they think we rejected them but they reject us as can be seen in how they use that kind of title. Turns me off in big time.
AUDISM 's attitude must be out of the Deaf community. That kind of attitude is not what the Deaf community is originally about.
CI / HA devices are the way of the hearing business to make money out of us. It is a rip off and damages Deaf children's choice. These choices make /Deaf children and Adult s death that I DON'T AGREE with.
People make Deaf children to live in Medical community not Deaf community as I am seeing it all along.. What's more they end up with high medical bills. I don't agree for us to take the responsibility for those damages. Sighs!
Why bother for someone to think it's better off to be a Shadow Hearing than Deaf beings, itself? Why bother to destroy our natural abilities and adaptation to cope with our being deaf as is?
I am so sick of this crab theory of being a Shadow Hearing that does not even exist except Hard of hearing with a high functionally.
There is something that I am not impressed with and disagree with oralism and CIism. That is the title that someone has in their blog. I didn't know when I found a title that makes me want to see what it is. So it ends up for me to be here and take more of a chance to add more opinions.
I was very shocked and offended when I saw this title inside of her blog that says "ASL - Cochlear Implant Community" and knew that I was correct about my own instinct and feelings. So I thought about it for a while. I decided to post this statement, I will say.
As far as I can see more and more CI radicals or Hearing radicals from the company or their creation of having more Scam stories about CI users and their success without any problems. They brushed me off and have their own closeminded views as well as I didn't violated any rules if you mind. You reject and cover up my very strong and truthful opinions. Doing this is not freedom of speech with respect. Now they are trying to more and more take over Deaf Community 's blogs. That is a big mess and scam as well.
It turns me off when CI representative of CI users said ASL- Cochlear Implant Community is a realistic to disagree more than ever with our Deaf Community. It has nothing to do with our Deaf community from the first place. It doesn't matter if it's evolved into a good change in Deaf community. This one, I will not accept. Audism is still affecting us and that needs to be stop.
Also, I don't come out here to say anything about the ASL - Hearing Aid Community. That is very outrageous for anyone to say this since they think we rejected them. However they reject us as they use that kind of title. TURN me off big time because it creates more conflict of interest between Deaf and deaf and hearing. Deaf community did not create more conflict of interest between Deaf and Hearing from a start.. We already made our compromise to work out with Hearing people for so many years. It doesn't even work out since it is not a two ways street at all. So heck with them for their sakes that I don't agree with. They caused the barrier of communication all along. They did it - not us.
AUDISM 's attitude must be out of the Deaf community. Audism is not what the Deaf community was originally about. It is nonsense to have a Hearing Machine Deaf Community with a mechanical robot device that we must depend on it is the law, which is full of it. It s a big scam going on lately. Sighs!
CI / HA devices are a way for the hearing businesses to make money out of us. We are ripped off and damaged. Deaf children have no choice. Because of the Deaf children and Adult deaths I DON'T AGREE with these devices. Also, there are too many hidden costs. That is how Deaf people have to pay for it after they gets their CI packages. It is really a total waste of money and is worthless to cover the CI device package's costs. It s so unbelieveable that people go for it and damaged the Deaf children 's life all along.
People need to realize that there is no difference between Deaf, Deaf/Hoh, and Deaf with or without devices. While we do read their lip movements with their facial expression all along, that has the emotional feelings to be a true expression. It's more of natural feelings to be spoken by our hands as is.
Other thing is ASL was *almost* lost because of oralism. However it IS back stronger. ASL belongs to the Deaf community, AND no one can change anything in our true visual languages of their international Deaf community and destroy our Deaf communities by Audism as well. It belongs to Deaf children as their first visual language. ASL helps them to gain their intellectual skills and social skills to built up their good minds. Also, we can have Deaf foreign Sign Language that we can learn and work the international jobs of the Deaf.
It's a good example for what white men did to destroy Native American's native language and actually did steal their lands. Also, Native American villages are very very poor. Why does it continue? Because of the opression of things that are different from the majority. However, Deaf people of color work together to get our power back and have our own understanding to make a good Deaf education with ASL. This is for every individual that won't have Behind the Child's Education. It's equal access for all of us Deafies to communicate in any communication system without being required to have spoken language to be involved.
This hurts Deafies and people of different ethnic or community groups that I have seen so many times. It breaks my heart to see the double standard of Deaf people's plight and sufferings as usual.
Deaf will be always deaf. So be it!
Thank you very much!
