Alexander Graham Bell: Public Enemy of the Deaf

Some of you may not know this especially if you aren’t associated with the Deaf community and if you are indeed associated with the Deaf community or you are Deaf/Hard of Hearing yourself then there is a good possibility that you know this. If you aren’t associated with the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community or you are one of them then you already have a question in your mind wondering what or who am I referring to the public enemy of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community but if you are associated with the community or you are one among of us as I am Deaf myself then you should by now already know that I am referring to Alexander Graham Bell being the public enemy of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community. Now that I have mentioned that the name is Alexander Graham Bell, those who aren’t associated with or is Deaf/Hard of Hearing immediately recalls that Alexander Graham Bell is known for being a pioneer or an inventor as he invented landline telephone and some of you already know that he has been suspected of stealing the blueprint from Elisha Gray who came up with the mechanics in blueprint to build the first landline telephone that everybody today uses at home using dial-up connection. That wasn’t the only thing that Alexander Graham Bell is known for, he is also known for being a public enemy of the Deaf community for more than a century and even though he may not longer alive but he left something behind that would continue to keep himself as the public enemy even to this day. His organization with several agencies under it calls Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. He has himself alone done harms to the Deaf community itself deeply to the point that it left an everlasting scar and his organization is here to always make sure that they find a way to open the wound scar in the Deaf community that he made when he was alive.

AG Bell Is At It Again!

AG Bell in short for Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, generally in the eyes of public AG Bell is just short for Alexander Graham Bell himself who is known for being inventor as he have invented phone that everybody uses inside their household but its eyes of the Deaf community the name AG Bell itself is shortened for Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing as both of these are practically same nonetheless. In the recent news, AG Bell have just detonated the ticking bomb not only in the Deaf community but also some professionals who is experts in the languages itself as there were a conference where AG Bell gave presentation by none other than the president of AG Bell, Meredith K. Sugar and in her presentation at a conference she declared that American Sign Language which is Deaf and Hard of Hearing’s native language is animal for any Deaf or Hard of Hearing child to learn. To be exact she declared that bilingualism is animal for any Deaf or Hard of Hearing child to learn, which referring to two languages in a package; American Sign Language and English is animal for anyone to learn. How does bilingualism works? When a Deaf or Hard of Hearing child born, that child would learn its native language which is American Sign Language as their first language so that the child have the ability to communicate at later in their life and then once their brain have developed to the point that they know how to communicate then they start learning English so they would know two languages which is what every business or colleges always look for in their application because they like anyone who is bilingual that fluent in more than one language.
