DeafDigest – 19 August 2019

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – August 19, 2019

— to be the only deaf person

You are deaf and enjoy yourself at a cruise or at a
vacation resort. Everyone immediately knows you are
deaf. It is different from being a hearing person at
an all-hearing cruise or all-hearing resort!


— one reason for opposing cochlear implants

Many deaf people oppose the cochlear implant – not
because they think it is a built-in hearing aid,
but because they want to preserve their own
deafness lifestyle. This was a comment a blogger
made on one of his blogs.


— a big Greenland irony

The USA president wants to purchase Greenland.
This has been a big story in recent days – but there
is a deaf irony. A deaf travel agent has been
advertising a deaf cruise to Greenland (and Iceland).
Of course there is no way the deaf travel agent would
know in advance of the President’s intentions.
