Ignorant Things People Say About Deaf People

I've spent some time searching on the Internet for deaf topics and found some ignorant comments made by hearing people about deaf people. I collected those comments and posted them here. Because hearing people have never met deaf people before, I was curious to know what they would really think about deaf people, and I am sure you would be, too. All of these sources come from Yahoo! Answer. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. While on the subject, these are their writings, not mine.
  



Question:   
"Why do Deaf people get SSI, when they can work as a maid, work other jobs that doesn't require hearing"
Answer:  
"Deafness is a disability , and there are some things that are impossible or challenging to do, such as driving, working in retail, walking across the street (you can't hear traffic). Why does this concern you?"

 Question:
"How come deaf people can't get good job?"
 Answer:
"BECAUSE IT'S DIFFICULT TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE DEAF AT THE WORK PLACE."
  
"How do deaf people, who were born deaf, think?"

"If blind people wear sunglasses why don't deaf people wear earmuffs?"

Question:
"How do deaf-mute people read?"
Answer:
"braille script bro....havent u heard of it...go to this link
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Braille"


Question:
"What language do dumb and deaf people think?"
Answer:
"people who are born deaf think in thought, just like other babies and animals.
It's only when you learn to speak that you learn which words go with which thoughts. The words do not be the thoughts"


Question:
"How do deaf people learn how to speak?" [STerras: It's a very understandable to ask this question, but look at the answer below.] 
Answer:
"Deaf people can't talk. Babies learn by imitating what's happening around them (that's why you don't let them hear you swearing). Deaf people can't hear, so they can't imitate any sounds to speak. They use sign language."

"How does a deaf person communicate on a mobile telephone?"

Question:
"What is the correlation between being mute and being deaf?"
Answer:
"they are just the same" 

"Can deaf people that are born deaf laugh?"

"Do deaf people scream when they're scared?"

Question:
"What type of work DUMB & DEAF CAN DO?"
Answer:
"They can't."

"Why can't you talk if your Deaf?"

Question:
"Can deaf people get a drivers' license?"
Answer:
"No. Deaf individuals cannot get a drivers license because they are not able to hear all that is around them. Think about it. When you are in traffic you want to be aware of your surroundings. The thing is that you need to hear the traffic around you. What happens if a deaf individual is driving on the road and they are not able to hear an emergency vehicle coming down the road? That means more accidents, and more time taken for the ER vehicle to get to its destination. This is just common sense. The thing is that even though they can see, they are still impaired. Deaf individuals should not drive and they cannot drive. That is just the law. You need to have all of your primary senses available to make good decisions on the road and cut down on accidents."
______________________________________________________________________________

All right, that is all for now. I'm sure some of you are either baffled or not surprised by those statements. I did get some laugh from them.

In all seriousness...

I can't help but notice that many people are saying that deaf people can only work in low-level or low-paying jobs like dishwashing, cleaning toilet, housekeeping, etc. since they can't hear. How does that make you feel? Do you believe these are all that are good for deaf people?

  2. All deaf can do is hone skills that make them desirable as employees. we can spend too long fighting our corner and neglecting the skills we need to be employees. Ignorance can prevail is a constant, but we cannot fight everyone.

    When looking for work you just do not open with 'demands', you have to prove what you can do for the employer, not what the employer HAS to for you, it's a killer. Most deaf work below capability it's a known fact.

    1. Not only do we need to master our skills to attract employers, we also need to stand out from the rest of hearing applicants, which is really hard and extremely competitive. This is why we need to raise such an awareness for the deaf, we just can't sit back and do nothing about it. It's our responsibility to stand up for ourselves and our rights to access employment opportunities.

      Understandably, this is economic crisis, but even in good times, we still faced the same issues.

    2. Start a deaf TV show and get hearing people and media to hear us out and get used to us and knowing each others needs, and growing the trust together from both sides over time seems to be best alternative for now for us, both. We better off together start fixing up the issues all fair and equal and same on these possible TV shows. We need to be heard and be part of life and its people.

    2. Anonymous, You have to wrong information.. STerras is right about being deaf discrimination from employment . You have to more careful about jumping the conclusion,too.. You are just simple clueless about deaf discrimination. More than 150 applications that I was applied the company for since 2006. it still They discriminating me out of 5 applied were difficult and won the case two. Third is my against to them and working on EEOC, Equal Employment Oppruitary Commission. My god.. my grown kids took my dictionary book. I cannot find a book.. I plan to moving. the reason why it did not help my spelling problem without dictionary book. It does not mean I am not mental retardation?

  8. When I had seen the boss a question about work, he gave me the application last February 15th, 2013 then I finished the apply position for Sacker and Stocker. Later next week, I called the Boss name Ronnie, he was an anxious himself how figure how I can hear if cashier how call me for sacking the foods. I found the Harris Comm. have it the vibration/chime. I wrote it to the Boss, later, I am awaiting on him no response, so, this morning, I called him again, and, he won't me part-time limit hours cuz of SSDI, he said hired someone for full-time. I told him I can work full-time. He said OK he'll call me. But, I know that he LIED that discrimination! I don't believe that he not hired me a problem for DUMB and DEAF. The Boss was a first open he did said that word "yes hired me" during the phone last week ago. Obviously, the Boss lied! No execuse Marlow Food Market is lousy because I notice many times the young and adult quitting job cuz of the Boss is evil man before I can see his face alike mean personally. I will have sue him for his discrimination THAT RIGHT DEAF CIVIL? Alike this Deaf Community , we have a good reason by God's job.

      You should file discrimination complaint with EEOC. Sounds like this boss was playing a game with you.

    3. Yes, Exactly! Thanks STerras!

      Best way to contact www.eeoc.gov up to one years. You have to file within 6 month and plenty of time to fill out and send them. Remember to quickly to file instead of waiting due to expiration. NOt likely Human Civil Right up to 6 month.. EEOC is one year. but you have to send quickly so they will negotiate up to 1 year.

      Also, you can research EEOC.gov. Many deaf or hard of hearing end up won the case. some of large sum of settlement,etc. Some of them small sum it is better than nothing!

  9. I'm a Deaf Jack-of-All-Trades guy.....I found your remarks about ignorant Hearings attitudes towards the Deaf to be amusing.
    After stomping on this Planet Earth for 59 going on 60 years, rural schools need to start educating students about the deaf people they would someday meet.
    Many times I have thought of asking these hearing people after their encounter with me and learn that I am deaf after telling them to write down what they need as I work for a retail store. They'd pause for several seconds as if they shitted in their pants, then finally they write down what was being said; I felt the temptation to ask if they thought that I was retarded or something because I can't hear and then counter-attack them by telling them they're really the retarded ones and make people with Down's Syndrome look better and smarter than them.
    Sometimes they would not write so I had to follow them yelling at them and get on their nerves because they got on my nerves when they do that. LOL
    I've noticed kids are more than willing to write down what was asked of them to me as if they enjoyed doing so.
    Give these ignorants hell until they realize they're the stupid ones, so don't ignore them, just bug them, show them who's gutsy and smarter! I am always laughing last!

    3. Tornado- This response is INCREDIBLY offensive. You're taking another disability, and demeaning those individuals to illustrate a point by insulting people who have NEVER interacted with a Deaf/HoH person? You refer to those people who don't understand how your preferred communication works as, "Ignorants." Well, guess what? It is YOUR job to EDUCATE them. Don't expect someone to "get it" instantly... you must have PATIENCE. I understand that there are some people out there who just won't ever get it, but take a minute, take a deep breath, and remain calm. Remember, if you are trying to extinguish ignorance amongst the "Hearings" then it is YOUR job to not be an asshole to them and compare them to persons with Downs Syndrome. ::SMH::

    1. I am unsure as to why this blog would upset you. This blog is mainly about Deaf employment issues and discrimination. It also encourages everyone to discuss about the problems and how we can solve them.

      You said some hearing people don't give a damn enough to discriminate against deafness, but it's quite untrue. The evidence shows that the unemployment rate for people with disabilities has always remained really high for a long time (and even in good times) compare to people without disabilities.

      We are not angry because we can't hear, in fact, we are proud to be deaf. We are just tired of being constantly discriminated in workplace or hiring process just because we can't hear. That is why I am bringing up these issues.

  16. STerras,
    I agree with you in this blog. Almost 30 years ago, I was studies Watch Repairer and graduated NSCC, North Seattle Community College that only watch repair that I was interesting and somewhat I never able to find a job as Watch repairer that I spent lot of money for community college expense that I want to work for Watch Repairer.

    Never find a new job after I got a job and after laid off from watch repairer. I looking for a job more than 5 years later and change a job and it is not my favorite things.

    Too many watch repairer wont hire deaf women for work as watch repair. End up I sold my watch repair. Hurt me so much and I am now unemployed for 6 years since because of that. Discrimination and I filed to EEOC against three companies. Some of you were mocked and it were not very nice to deaf people's future. Most deaf can only everything they can working without sound.

    Lighthouse company hired many deaf-blind employer. they earned so small than normal. 11 per hours. it is hurt their living cost.

    We're deaf human being. We don't need earmuffs and we don't read braille. I've noticed hearing people tend to misjudge deaf people's educates which actually it their. I would say Paradox of the educates and societies.
    To be honest, one of my support manager whom work at walmart which he isn't inappropriate behavior. While I was trying to complete aisles at the one department, He came at the dept. and said to me, "Hey I know sign language" then he flip finger at me and laugh. I don't understand why his position "support manager" even though he doesn't writes English very well. Sometimes I wrote something to him and he doesn't understand. Other manger would likes me to work as manager at the dept. which I'm interested but support manager complains that "The deaf guy can't work there because of communicate, he can't talk" I've been waiting pretty long and result nope. I aren't happy at the support manager, what a pity... he ought to work janitor.
    Some of hearing people whom uneducated consider them selves begin racist and discrimination against deaf. Feels sorry for them. society's pretty messed up nowadays from then.

I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him here as (518) 303-6207 or spirituallighthealing101@live.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something

  30. With a little hard work and determination we can all do anything. I know a deaf person and they seem to communicate just fine. People think they can't hear or know what we say but some find that they can lip read and are able to communicate better than most people think.

    I am currently deaf in my right ear and Blind in my right eye. I find it hard to communicate or hear people though deaf people are people too. They shouldn't be judged as if they are some sort of alien like some of these questions are being told here.

    Just because you lose or are born without these senses means we can adapt, whether you're blind, Deaf or Mute we adapt to our bodies. Just remember. They may be deaf but they find new ways to do things. This isn't a rant at anyone in comments though the questions up above some were a little on edge. People regardless of how they are born are still humans.
