What is proper etiquette of communication for hearing people when around deaf people?
Asked in Sign Language
Why do deaf people sign if they can speak vocally?
Being able to speak vocally works OK when a deaf person is speaking TO a hearing person but when both people are deaf neither can hear what the other person is saying. Signing therefore enables communication between deaf people and would be a better way for a hearing person to say something TO a deaf person. If you can hear why don't you learn how to sign!
Asked in Social Media, Deafness and Hearing Loss
Is there a social media so the deaf can meet the hearing?
The deaf and hard of hearing can easily use everyday social media to get in touch with deaf and non-deaf people, such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Flickr. However, there are some networks available which specialise for deaf people to meet other deaf or non-deaf individuals. For example: Snoorfi DeafChat AllDeaf There are also specialist media for deaf dating, if that's what you're looking for: Deaf-Match Deaf Passions See the related links below.
What is worse about deaf?

Is it better to be blind or deaf?
It really depends, but it would be bad to be either. If you are blind, you can' see. You have to have some one read to you and you need to be able to recognize people's voices instead of their faces. It can be hard to learn too. Same with being deaf. And it would be hard to understand people. But a lot of people would rather be blind. Why? Because at least you can hear, smell, and actually learn a little bit more then when you are deaf. But if you ever get blind or deaf, don't ask these questions.
