DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – September 22, 2021

— appropriate or not appropriate sign language

On a sign language website, it says:
Deaf People Graciously Demo Sign Language for Swear Words and Insults

Is that appropriate or not appropriate?

You decide!


— contact lens for the deaf

Contact lens for the deaf to fix their vision
issues? Yes, but there is a diffferent type
of contact lens. It is for the ear of a
deaf person! Something to do with relaying
outside sound into the deaf ear. The
Ear, Nose, and Throat physician is saying
it does a better job than the hearing aid!


— a over dozen police cars arrive at scene of deaf incident

A deaf employee and hearing employees could not
understand each other at a work place. It resulted
in over 12 police cars arriving at the scene!
Police was carrying long guns and wearing tactical
gear. Once communications was clarified, the police
said that it was a miscommunication issue and that
there was never a threat to anyone, especially the
public. Embarrassing? Very much so.

— good captions and bad captions

Are all captions made equal? No, according
to a captioner. There are good captions
and bad captions. We enjoy good captions
and are stuck with bad captions.


— deaf better off working at home instead of office

A job counselor said deaf employees are better off
working at home instead of at the office. At home
there are no hearing people around to look over
the deaf whereas at office hearing people can
create issues and problems for the deaf!

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – September 20, 2021

— fans crying over a departed actress

Deaf actress, playing a deaf role on a TV
sitcom, left the cast for good (her choice).
As a result the hearing TV audience was
crying because the deaf actress was their
favorite actress. It is the British sitcom
Casualty, and leaving the program for good
is Gabriella Leon. No reason was given why
she left, as it was a steady acting role
for her!


— embarrassing incident at a council meeting

A councilman, who was deaf but functioned as a
hearing person, was wearing a hearing aid
during the council meeting. It whistled, but the
deaf person didn’t know about it. It interrupted
the meeting and the chairperson discovered it
was the hearing aid. A choice was given – to
continue the meeting without the hearing aid
or to leave the meeting and go home. For
reasons of his own, the deaf councilman stayed
throughout the meeting without his hearing aid.
How was he able to follow the meeting proceedings?
Do not know.


— movies about the deaf

Are movies about the deaf for the deaf
people to watch and to enjoy? No, according
to a movie critic – it is for the enjoyment
of hearing people. Same goes for theatrical
plays about the deaf but is for the hearing.
