People’s Perception on Deaf People

I would like to remind many of you with a disclaimer for this that this is my view, my thought and my perception of what I see out of the people’s perception on the Deaf people because every Deaf and Hard of Hearing have different experiences therefore they can share what it is to be under the microscope of the people who we labelled “hearies”. I am only sharing what I have witnessed on hand from what the hearies people have a perception of the Deaf people and Hard of Hearing including myself as I am one of many Deaf person in the world. So, I encourage the Deaf and Hard of Hearing to share their thoughts on what it is like to get an idea of how the hearies people view them as or of. Now that we get this out, as I have said that this is my view for getting the idea of what the hearies have a perception of us Deaf and Hard of Hearing people. It is no secret that the Deaf people doesn’t have it easy, in fact they must work as twice hard to survive whether it be trying to get a job from somewhere and being oppressed by many of people for several decades. I have seen, I am certain that many if not all Deaf community can say that when we declare that we are Deaf or Hard of Hearing we would get a reaction from the hearies as if being Deaf means that we are uneducated and took us as if we have mental retardation or in nicer word “intellectual disability” for some reason. There are a few theories but mainly I can blame a few of the people who invented a term words for the Deaf people which is “Deaf and Dumb” so that misled many of the hearies people to think that Deaf people have no intelligence whatsoever hence the word “Dumb”. Whomever invented that term to label the Deaf people several decades ago were obviously uneducated and in the end, they weren’t intelligent so that is irony since there have been many studies that have done on the Deaf people which have found that they can be as intelligent as others if they are being taught in their native language (American Sign Language, British Sign Language, Auslan, Langue Des Signes Du Quebec-LSQ etc.).

Education is it that important?

EducationHey guys, how are every one of you doing? Doing anything that’s fun lately have you? I am doing just fine, just very busy lately and sometimes it’s no fun when it comes being busy although there are some fun in being busy depending on what you are doing that makes you busy but busy isn’t always fun. I have done a lot of searching lately while at same time trying to reach out for some help through social media because I need some of the ideas to write about something or on something but I have nothing and I am assuming that everybody else couldn’t come up with some of the ideas for me to write about something or on something for today’s article or they didn’t see my help message through social media asking for some help. It’s getting harder to come up with something to write an article about something or on something that it’s not even funny anymore because it’s very stressful for me and I have thought lately that it is possible that I will be taking a bit break of blogging for at least a week at the most so to see if that helps me to come up with some of the ideas to write about in the next article unless any one of you would help me by giving me some ideas on what to write about or on in the next article. So if you don’t see me writing an article all week then it is because I am taking a break from blogging so that to see if that would help me with coming up with some ideas for me to blog about here unless I have somebody suggesting some ideas for me and I hope that you understand that I might be taking a week break so to see if that will help me to come up with some new ideas or maybe to improve my creativity in writing.
