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 πŸ™‚

I just want to punch, smash and break down a few stereotypes in this short piece today

  1. 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 πŸ™‚

If you have any other stupid comments or stereotypes that have be said to you, comment below on Facebook or message me privately. I love to hear people’s stories

I am deaf, obviously. I am passionate about deaf rights and want to raise awareness on the issues that deaf people face on a daily basis while bringing in my own personal experiences as a deaf person in a deaf and hearing world....
