WHY DEAF AVOID DEAF?
Why do many deaf people avoid the deaf? Hard
to say because if you ask them they won’t admit
they avoid the deaf.
Possible reasons – refuse to learn ASL;
belief they are better than deaf; parents told
them to avoid deaf; they hear better because
of CI or hearing aid and can chat with hearing;
ashamed of deafness, etc.
Good or bad? Hard to say.
