My New eBook "What Every Deaf Person Needs to Know"

My new ebook called "What Every Deaf Person Needs to Know" is now available in pdf format only for $3.00. This ebook is mainly based on my life story as a Deaf person who has been dealing with audism and discrimination in college and hiring employment. In this book, I discussed a lot of shocking details about how college instructors treated me when I was in college and how hiring employers reacted after finding out I was deaf. After explaining all of things happened to me, I included the analyses of why many Deaf people struggle to find a job and why some if not more hiring employers avoid dealing with Deaf individuals.

This book contains fourteen chapters and is only available in pdf format that you can download from any device (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.) as long as it has the Adobe Acrobat or readable PDF.

To buy my ebook, go to this link: https://sarahterras.selz.com/items/detail/531e8500a1416c12ac6d3778

If you have any questions or concerns about this ebook or anything else, don't hesitate to ask me.

Thanks for the reading!

Why Does The Article Piss You Off?

I read a lot of comments on the "Reasons Employers Won't Hire Deaf Applicants" article, which can be found at http://deafcantgetjobs.blogspot.com/2012/11/reasons-employers-wont-hire-deaf-people.html. I would like to say thank you to those who took their time to write and express what they had to say. It's very interesting to see so many different point of views as to why most Deaf folks struggle to find a job. Some of them even change the way I look at myself as a Deaf person and how the hearing society sees Deaf people. The reason I am writing this is because I would like to address and give my two cents to some of those comments.

Some people said that it is not true because Deaf people still want to be on SSI and are too lazy to do anything, or that their attitude and behavior are the reasons employers don't want them. Some of them can't even handle the fact that employers don't want Deaf people just because they are deaf. Others simply said they know someone who is deaf has a good jobokay, but that does not take away the fact that the unemployment and underemployment rates for deaf individuals are still high in the U.S. Economic crisis and recession just make it even worse.

I am not angered or bothered by these comments because I believe each one of us is entitled to our own opinion. There is nothing wrong with speaking your mind. Both agreements and disagreements are very much welcomed here. I am really interested in seeing different opinions and ideas from the rest of you guys, which help me see things in a different perspective.

However, you can't state something without providing some type of evidence to back it up and expect me to just take it as is. A statement without any back-up evidence or fact, to me, is just worthless. As I've said before, I do not have any problems with some people who disagreed with my articles as long as their comments are respectful and intelligible. An angry comment with big caption letters, exclamation mark, and insulting words is simply unacceptable. I do consider that to be bullying and harassment. It's just too immature in my opinion.

What I am noticing is that some of the hearing commenters are more upset than Deaf by the article of "Reasons Employers Won't Hire Deaf Applicants". Why? I don't know. I guess it could be either they are secretly ashamed of the fact that their own people are rejecting Deaf people or... well, actually, I think it's only that. What else could it be? They don't like it when I am telling the truth, but you know what? Face it.

Some hearing people who are upset about the R.E.W.H.D.A. say they know a deaf person, whether it's their spouse, family member, or friend, who has a very good job. Instead of just cursing, how about inviting them over here and share their experience and tips of how they got a good job? Also, since you are hearing and have never been in a deaf person's shoes, who are you to speak on this subject, anyway? What do you really know? Here's an ideawhy don't you just learn some sign language, wear earplugs, go out into the world and see what it's like to be deaf?

That's all I needed to say.

Thanks for the reading!
