#DidYouKnow #Deaf #DeafAwareness #education #SignLanguage #advocacy #NMSCares

This is actually sadly relevant. I had a lecture this summer about sign languages and Deaf culture and when I was finished, one hearing girl from the audience stayed behind to ask me some more question.

She asked me: “And your parents use sign language, right?” Like it was the most obvious thing in the world and why is she even asking this, of course my parents must know sign language.

"No… They don’t, actually."

"And how do you communicate, then?"

"Talking?"

"But… isn’t that complicated for you?"

"It is, sometimes."

"They probably didn’t have time for it…" she said. And I haven’t the heart to tell her that my father was offered sign language courses several times, that I offered to teach them some signs and that they always refused.

But I did told her: “It is not that rare. Most of deaf people I know have hearing parents who don’t sign.”

It’s the sad truth. People are willing to pay for surgeries to “repair” their children, but they are not willing to learn something to communicate with them.

i’d like to add onto this with my own personal experience, too. i was born hearing, but as soon as i was diagnosed as HoH, my parents didn’t do anything to learn ASL. they were quick to put me in classes, but they wouldn’t when i suggested to them that they take the classes with me so that we could learn.

i’ve tried to teach my mom how to sign numerous times, but she always says that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” to which i tell her that she can learn, she just doesn’t want to. which is true. neither of my parents want to learn how to sign, but they want me to be able to hear perfectly so they don’t have to repeat themselves.

little do they know that their frustration with me not being able to hear them would be solved if they would just learn how to sign. maybe signing something to me once instead of repeating themselves four times and then getting mad would be more beneficial.

I’m absolutely shocked at this, it’s never crossed my mind that many parents wouldn’t even try to meet their hard of hearing kids halfway.

What the fuck kind of parenting is that? I’m appalled. 

Listen, man. If you’re going to be a parent, then that means you have to be prepared to pull your finger out and do things for them, even when it’s inconvenient for you. Your kid didn’t ask to be lumped in with you; you did that, and now you’re going to have to do everything you can to make that kid’s life as decent and balanced and good as you can possibly manage. That’s what being a parent means. Your kids don’t owe you shit

Now normally when I explain that it’s because someone is bitching and whining about having an ungrateful child who doesn’t want to do X, Y or Z with them or for them or who isn’t living up to expectations, like that child is indebted to them because they fulfilled the basic criteria of human decency by raising them with some semblance of compassion and care, but this? Horrendous

I’m sorry, does learning a new skill so that you can communicate with your child seem like it’s above and beyond somehow? Sorry, matey, but it isn’t. You’re a parent, this is your job. Pull your fucking socks up.

It’s blowing my mind how that person says ‘monosexuals’ cause if they called us gay people that would totally undermine their whole point. They literally want to take the word gay from us so we can only be Homosexuals or Monosexuals, the former of which is an incredibly stigmatizing term used by straight people to pathologize us and the latter of which does not distinguish us from straight people

Gay rights are so much more than marriage equality. 

…you can seriously be fired for being gay?

yes (and y’know lesbian, bi, queer, and in even more states, trans)

…and, for trans folk, evicted or denied housing, which disproportionately affects transfeminine folk than transmasculine folk. Yay, male privilege.

Transitioning can cost you a career, your home, your family (visitation rights are often denied to trans women to prevent the children being exposed to “perversity”), and your savings.

Trans women of colour have a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered. Let me say that again: trans women of colour have a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered.

And yet…all the while GLAAD and the HRC are celebrating the success of fight for marriage equality as the fulfillment of their mission.

I had the privilege to hear a staff lawyer (cisgender white gay male, shocking I know) for GLAAD and the HRC respond to criticism about the implied exclusion of trans folk in the “gay rights” movement. When asked specifically about ENDA, he responded with “Well, ENDA was set aside because gay people are more numerous and heteronormativity is easier to get. There arent enough trans people to matter with regard to ENDA.”

So, long story short - yes, you can be fired for being gay in some states, but you are FAR more likely to lose your life prematurely if you are trans.

…and I think that is bullshit, and its why I wont stop talking about it. Not until myself and all my sisters are all free and safe to live our lives.

oh.

Actually, I think the kid is playing Minecraft. Which is essentially digital Legos.

Two generations of creative people, just different methods of expression. Let’s not shit on the digital age as much, ‘eh?

You know what’s great about Minecraft?

You don’t get lacerations from stepping on it.

You know what’s great about legos?

Your shit doesn’t get blown up because a green penis snuck up on you.

Capitalist 1: Hey, it's Pride month, should we do anything to support queer people?
Capitalist 2: I heard there's a shelter for queer and trans kids who got kicked out that's going to be closing soon due to lack of funding?
Capitalist 1: I was thinking more along the lines of an ad campaign where we just put our logo in rainbow colors.
Capitalist 2: That's a much better idea
