The Hearing Monoculture Rejects Those Who Can't Hear

https://modelviewculture.com/…/the-hearing-monoculture-reje…. "Discrimination, assumptions, and restricted access have created a system in which we are oppressed. We are called disabled because the system shirks the responsibility of accommodating us just as it accommodates others. Oh, the system says, you must not have tried hard enough. Oh, the system says, the cost of access is too prohibitive. Oh, the system says, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few."
I have never met another person who is deaf at a hearing tech conference. I regularly see uncaptioned video tutorials for open source libraries and…

Deaf People Love Going To The Cinema Too

Deaf people love going to the cinema just as much as anyone else does, but as I wrote in this Guardian article back in 2011, we're not well served by cinemas. Often, the limited number of subtitled film screenings are badly advertised, arranged at inconvenient times (such as in the middle of a working day, or early morning at the weekends).

5 Differences Between Hearing People & Deaf People Who Can Hear

At weekends, we publish some of our most popular articles. Tell us your favourites by emailing thelimpingchicken@gmail.com So, deafies come in all shapes and sizes. We also come with a wide, wide, range of hearing abilities. However, even those among us who use devices to help restore some hearing (hearing aids, BAHAs, Cis, e.t.c) are still fundamentally deaf. And still fundamentally different to those profoundly hearing folk. [ 1088 more words. ]

Seek the World
American Sign Language V.S. Auslan (Australian Sign Language)
Words that we will sign:
-WOW
-DAY
-WEEK
-MONTH
-YEAR
-MONDAY
-TUESDAY
-WEDNESDAY
-THURSDAY
-FRIDAY
-SATURDAY
-SUNDAY
-BUSY
[Note: I want to mention that Auslan has regional signs for their words just like ASL. For example, we all don't sign SUNDAY the same because mine is from Austin, TX. That goes same with their SATURDAY and BUSY as they are from Syndey Dialect. Keep that in mind, guys! =)]
Hope you learned something new today! Enjoy learning the difference between ASL and Auslan. Not to mention the beautiful view of the Sea Cliff Bridge!

Deaf Man's -ASL Accident- Story

#DeafTalent

"As an actress who is deaf I can’t fall behind my deafness and expect it to do the work for me. It’s my acting skills and role suitability that will get me jobs, not my lack of hearing."
Whether you're aware of the #deaftalent hashtag trend that's circulating social media, there's a storm brewing in the deaf world. Or amongst the thespians at least. I say this be...

Paddy Ladd Explaining The Concept Of Deafhood

The BBC's programme for Deaf people, See Hear, has released a recent item featuring Deaf academic Paddy Ladd, explaining the concept of Deafhood. The term Deafhood first became widespread when it was published in Ladd's book called Understanding Deaf Culture: In Search of Deafhood in 2003. It has since become understood around the world. Deafhood involves seeing being Deaf as being part of a culture, rejecting the 'medical model' of deafness, and being positive about Deaf identity. [ 303 more words. ]
