Why you shouldn’t share those ‘Deaf person hears for the first time’ videos, tl;dr
  • Those videos frame dDeafness as something that needs to be fixed.
  • Very few dDeaf people are elligible for implants

  • With those two points in mind, it says to people who can’t get the implant that “you’re broken and cannot be fixed”

  • Patients who do get cochlear implants undergo a VERY invasive surgery and weeks to months of extensive therapy to even be able to use their implant

  • Many recipients of an implant are infants and children under 5 years old. These children are not old enough to make the decision for themselves.

  • Cochlear implants come with some heavy baggage in the dDeaf community and children can face some ostracization from receiving one.

  • Those videos make it seem like a cochlear implant is a miracle cure when in fact there is no such thing.

man ok, just one thing to be clear:

when people are talking about the US elections and pressuring people to vote

it should be obvious that people under the age of 18 and people who don’t live in the US are not who that post is meant for. 

if you are not an elligible US voter, please withhold your complaints about how much we talk about it. this is a very, very important election that the future of the political system could possibly hinge on. let us talk about it, let us pressure people to vote, and don’t make us look like we’re being mean to people who can’t do anything about it. We know you can’t. those posts aren’t for you.
