DeafDigest – 11 June 2018

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – June 11, 2018


— fans urging hearing actor to play a deaf role!

Deaf people want deaf actors to play deaf roles.
Hearing people do not feel that way; it does not
matter to them if a hearing actor plays a deaf role.
Clint Barton, who is not deaf, plays the Hawkeye
role. But in future Hawkeye movies, there have been
hearing fans that ask him to play a deaf role!
It is often that deaf people and hearing people
think differently. Sad, but true. A picture is at:


— Prince Philip’s mocking of the deaf

Prince Philip has always been notorious for
mocking people with jokes that he thinks is
funny but in which it actually is not. He
made one deaf joke about a group of them
standing in front of a loud musical band
and saying “no wonder you are deaf.” Anyway
DeafDigest wonders if he has made many more
anti-deaf jokes over the years that were not
reported in the newspapers? Very possibly so!


— deaf people at political rallies

Political rallies (and marches) are supposed
to be interpreted for the deaf in USA. A
deaf activist said:

Deaf people face difficulties at marches that focus on speakers

This activist is correct
