No middle ground. Deaf culture/ raising a deaf/HOH child is just too political
I have to say. We've sunk to an all time low. When we're chastizing people over their decision to place "deaf child" signs in the neighborhood, don't you think we've placed our own political agendas before one others viewpoints??? If there was something available that MIGHT help keep someones children safe, why would someone be against that? I'm just at a loss here. I've tried to play nice, but come on people. We should all be in this together. My children are deaf. Three have implants. I'm typically afraid to admit that to quite a few in the deaf culture, yet I yearn for my chilren to also have that perspective. I am not alone. There is a middle ground here. I am sure of it.
