Hearing People & Sign Language

I just saw a post on my dash about how hearing people shouldn’t learn sign language, that it’s “”“”“"ableist”“”“”“ or "culturally appropriative” and i’m sososoooo angry

As someone who was born deaf, I’d just like to say that without “"hearing people”“ knowing sign language, I would’ve had absolutely no way to communicate with my family other than through written language. I would’ve been completely unable to make friends in school because I wouldn’t have had a way to communicate with a single one of my peers. I would not have LEARNED anything in school if it weren’t for the interpreter who COULD HEAR.
I could go on, but I was fortunate enough to have access to specialists and surgeons who were able to operate on me and correct my hearing at a young age, so I can hear now.
But honestly, I want people to think about how isolating it can be when you’re in a room with people who all speak a language you know how to read and write, but you can’t communicate with any of them because you can’t understand spoken word, and they can’t sign.
If you think that learning sign language as someone who hears is somehow damaging, re-evaluate where you’re coming from. I would have loved nothing more than for all of the hearing people in my life who didn’t know sign language to know sign language so that I could have communicated with them, and not been limited to a select few people with whom I could sign.

Learn sign language, we’ll always be grateful.

Somebody said you got a new friend
Does she love you better than I can?

And yeah, I know it’s stupid
But I just gotta see it for myself

I’m in the corner, watching you kiss her, oh oh oh
And I’m right over here, why can’t you see me, oh oh oh
And I’m giving it my all, but I’m not the guy you’re taking home, ooh
I keep dancing on my own

I just wanna dance all night
And I’m all messed up, I’m so out of line
Stilettos and broken bottles
I’m spinning around in circles
And I’m giving it my all, but I’m not the guy you’re taking home, ooh
I keep dancing on my own

And oh no
So far away but still so near
The lights come up, the music dies

But you don’t see me standing here
I just came to say goodbye
I’m in the corner, watching you kiss her, oh

And I’m giving it my all, but I’m not the guy you’re taking home, ooh
I keep dancing on my own
And oh no
Sit down in the corner, watching you kiss her, oh no
And I’m right over here, why can’t you see me, oh no
And I’m giving it my all, but I’m not the guy you’re taking home, ooh
I keep dancing on my own

So far away, but still so near
The lights come up, the music dies
But you don’t see me standing here

Rough around the edges, memories and baggage… You know me;
Never play the safe card, when I go I go hard.

Relationship warning signs

Reasons not to date someone (all learnt from experience, unfortunately)

  • they speak badly about their ex(es), especially if it is in great detail and without being asked
  • they think other women are whores/dumb/only good for the kitchen/owe men sex for dates etc./ other men are dumb/all liars/need to be buff/shouldn’t show emotions etc. (trust me they’ll think/think the same about you)
  • they don’t like being too “public” with their relationship- on social media, walking on busy streets (they prefer to hide with multiple partners)
  • they don’t introduce you to their friends/family after a respected amount of time
  • they don’t answer your texts/calls for hours 
  • they spend way too much time on their phone, especially if they purposely hide it when you try to look at it
  • they are wary of plans that are in the future even if it’s just a trip that would be in two weeks

HAWKE: Fenris, talk to me. What happened back at Haven? What was it like?

FENRIS: … 

FENRIS: Everything was… bigger than me.

You drove me insane but at the same time, you were the only thing that kept me sane
—  It’s been 124 days

I have finally rewatched this amazing musical and this is just a perfect crossover for these two, okay?

And I believe, there’s good in everybody’s heart,
Keep it safe and sound.
(Listen close to everybody’s heart,
And hear that breaking sound.)
With hope you can do your part
To turn a life around!
(Hopes and dreams are shattering apart
And crashing to the ground!)
