Coming into the light consists of a Deaf person’s journey towards finding their Deaf identity. As we learned in class, some Deaf people struggle to find their identity due to not knowing the resources available to them or having bad experiences with hearing people. This causes them to have a little d but when they find who they truly are they develop a big D and embrace being Deaf. As for the visual scream, it is when someone makes a visual gesture that seems like they’re making a loud sound but there is no sound with it. This is often seen in silent films or done by Deaf performers to add emotion to their performances.
Deafness. The term is used to describe people who are unable to hear. Deafness is a social and cultural phenomenon that exists in every country and culture in the world, and has existed for a long time. People in the deaf communities all share a common perception; thus, creating a distinctive cultural, linguistic, and social community. Their language is the main feature of deaf culture that separates and distinguishes them from hearing people all throughout history.
Some people see deafness as a disability, while others treat it as a disease that need to be cured. Many people have tried to stop deafness through eugenics or oral schooling, but deafness is deafness no questions asked. Many people understand deafness as something that all deaf people hate, while others acknowledge that certain people are content with deafness and others are not. Graeme Clark is a man who understood that deafness is something that can be treated, while still being careful not to offend anyone. He invented the bionic ear as a way for people who disliked being deaf to hear.
I arrived at the Loaf N Jug located at 59 S. Curtis at 10:15 a. m. and observed 7 cars in the parking lot and 3 cars purchasing fuel. The exterior of the building was clean, well maintained and the overall appearance was inviting. Entering the store, the cashiers were engaged with customers so I proceeded to walk up and down the aisles looking at the shelves and floor area. They both appeared stocked and organized.

The deaf subculture is one that is highly overlooked. Many people know there are deaf communities but that is where their knowledge of that subculture ends. Very few people know the depth and vibrancy of the Deaf subculture. There are Deaf theater companies, Deaf film festivals, and Deaf comedy shows. Deaf arts are distinct in a way most hearing people cannot appreciate.
Deaf role models all have significance and meaning in their life and career. Interesting comparisons can be made through each individual character. These comparisons will be made between Dummy Hoy, Rocky Stone, and Lance Allred. Education in the early years for William Ellsworth Hoy (Dummy) included going to a school for the Deaf at Oregon and even becoming the valedictorian for his graduating class. At the age of three, William got meningitis leaving him deaf and mute.
I am submitting a claim for Hearing Loss due to noise exposure while I was on active duty in Vietnam, 1970-71. As an Intelligence Staff Officer assigned to a five-man MACV District Advisory Team, I was stationed at an ARVN base in Duc Hoa, Vietnam, where I was subjected to noise from both incoming and outgoing artillery—as well as small arms fire, grenades, and RPGs—on a regular basis. During my tour I was also exposed to bombs dropped near the base by the Vietnamese Air Force. Finally, my duties as an advisor required me to fly to locations in a Bell UH-1 "Huey" Helicopters for reconnaissance missions , where I was exposed the loud noises of the aircraft and its armaments through the open door. Ear protection on such missions was never provided.
This essay aims to bring light to the very real issue of parents practicing modern day eugenics on their children. Genetically selecting for disabled children is the goal of the “Deaf of Deaf” movement. Although parent autonomy over their own child is a given, the utmost importance needs to be placed on the child’s right to an open future. Deaf people do not view their lack of hearing as a disability and flourish within their cohesive community. However, deliberately forcing this lifestyle on a child violates their right to make their own decisions about their life.
