Sterotypes exist for Deaf people and they are real.
So far, I’ve had
- You talk so well, you can’t be deaf
- You don’t look deaf
- So do hearing aids fix you, so your not really deaf
- What are those things in your ears
PLUS MANY MORE. Have you had any, share them with me on Facebook in the comments 🙂
I just want to punch, smash and break down a few stereotypes in this short piece today
- Deaf people can’t drive
Yes. We can.
2. All Deaf people sign
No, not all.
3. You don’t look Deaf
That’s so dumb. What is a Deaf person supposed to look like? A alien with three tits? Come on..
4. Hearing aids/cochlear implants cure Deaf people
Oh my god. Could you sound anymore like Donald Trump with this nonsense..
5. Deaf and Dumb
Really Billy, you have 2 GCSE’s and 1 tooth. Go away 🙂
