this has probably already been done, but i am so sick of reading fanfiction that has totally inaccurate portrayals of deaf/HoH characters, so I’m making a guide
This turned out really long, so you can read the whole thing under the cut
ATTENTION: If someone wants me to do another one of these resource posts for a more specific D/deaf/HoH issue, such as how to write deaf children, different types of hearing aids, deaf accomodations, etc just shoot me an ask and i’ll make one!
god ok im sorry if its not my place to like, say anything as a white and able bodied person, but when u kin outside ur ability and race those are two totally different ball parks like, ok
example, kaneki ken lives in japan so it doesnt affect him that he’s japanese unless he were to go some other place then he’ll experience racism, however
iding as someone like suzuya juuzou who is missing a leg, that affects him because hes an amputee that compromises his daily functioning and if you’re able bodied, you can in no way, shape or form reclaim that. its the same basis as wehn someone who can see IDs as someone who is blind (aka sollux, terezi, and latula kins) its icky and i prefer u not following me if u ID outside ur ability because like,
ok if someone whos allistic followed me and IDs as jake english or caliborn or nepeta ill be uncomfortable or someone who doesnt have some sort of mood disorder follows and IDs as sollux captor or someone who is cis and IDs as a trans character thast. gross. like.
