Why did Hearing People Take Over?
Hello, I want to share the story as I feel a little disappointed about hearing people. Why? For example, I am an actor. I read the script and the story has a deaf character. I am thrilled and auditioning for that part. The audition downsize and they already pick hearing actor who will play a lead role as deaf. Why? They say that the hearing person sign very well. To me, it looks like they try to save money on interpreter. They say it is good enough for him to hear and use sign language same time. I puzzle myself as I am 100 percent deaf actor. That’s why the hearing people always take over.
Another one, in ASL class, I used to be an ASL teacher. I am very eager to teach ASL. Same time, I am very curious to see who teach other ASL classes. I find out that the hearing people teach ASL classes. Whoa, wait a minute, why did they take over and teach ASL? What’s wrong with deaf people because ASL is our culture. You know but they say, as long as they can sign and see nothing wrong with it. Plus, most hearing people run ASL classes. The hearing people take over! Why can’t they leave deaf people alone and allow deaf people to take care of it? I feel disappointed!
Thirdly, the worst part is, do you remember that I tell you a story about deaf travel agents? I am very proud and support deaf as you know that there is a thousand hearing travel agents out there. I put deaf travel agents names on the left side of my blog with their permission that I can use their names. A few days later, I get lot of emails from people, they say that I have two faces. At first, I did not understand what they really mean that I am two faced. They say that I support deaf but for hearing, it is enough. They say I put/add the hearing name with deaf travel agents. No, no way, I puzzle and did not put/add the hearing name in it. So, I check to make sure if I did not put/add in my blog but it looks same to me. I puzzle again and talk to my son about what happened. My son puzzle in disbelief and say no. He finds out that person sends lot of emails to people who subscribe his. He gets our original information which is four deaf travel agents as he adds one hearing travel agent in it. What’s up? Why did hearing person take over? He does not like to see that the information is for deaf travel agents only, he wants to put hearing in deaf travel agents. STOP! I already get their permission but he addresses to put it without their permission. It is wrong thing to do. I still don’t understand why hearing people still take over? Why can’t they leave deaf people alone? There is many deaf people that did not get job. It is hearing’s fault because they push deaf people out and take over. What’s up? Why can’t they leave deaf people alone and allow deaf people to make their own life? Successful, you know what I mean? Why? I really am disappointed. (show image) Thanks for watching me. Thumb up.
