    judging from some of the prejudices of the Deaf towards those in the oral deaf community.

    •  What about the prejudice of society as a whole? (0+ / 0-)

      You really can't complain about prejudice towards the oral method unless you look at the way that society as a whole has treated Deaf people.

      Also, some of the people who push the oral method see ASL as inferior and their first instinct is to keep it away from their children, etc.

      We're clearly not going to agree here but as Obama supporters, I think that's good enough.

      Conservatives are close-minded, shallow, superficial people that live in a fantasy world where everything is black and white and there are NO shades of gray.

        I support the rights of parents to make decisions for their deaf child, whether it be ASL or the oral method with or without cochlear implantation.

        I want full accessibility and accommodations for deaf people, and that's my main priority as an Obama supporter.
