Remember that youtube video of woman who hears for the first time?
Well, she came out with a book called Powered On The SOUNDS I Choose to Hear and the NOISE I Dont. I was reading an article about it and she was quoted as saying, “I started realizing that there were others out there like me,” she said. “People who longed to feel whole…” I just want to say that feeling whole and complete should not depend on external circumstances. This is enlightenment 101. Wholeness comes from within. We are all Divine Creatures and are perfect as we are.
Frankly, it is offensive to people who choose to be Deaf. It is audist to assume that people who do not perceive frequencies on the same spectrum as the majority are somehow less human. The problem is intolerance for diversity of linguistic minorities.
I understand people have the freedom to choose what frequency spectrum to allow into their sensory apparatuses. But I do not appreciate being told I am incomplete or less whole because I don’t put a machine in my head. Thank you very much. Deaf Power.
