" MY BOWL"
…the teacher was not 15 minute early like she usually was so the whole class was flipping out, wondering if she was ever going to show up
so everyone was discussing how we could just get up and leave and she would never know
and someone else mentioned the 15 minute rule, so another person called…
I just remembered that this happened
You know what the best part about the others adjusting to Deaf!Clint would be?
Bruce still attempting to use ASL while in Hulk mode.
He’d sign “where?” and take out a city block while Clint just cracks up laughing.
Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately? This doesn’t have rhyme or reason) for each person, it’s going to take different things. What works for one doesn’t work for another. Everyone has to find their own way of coming to terms with all of the STUFF that’s inside of them.
I think sometimes people assume that it’ll either come naturally, or that it has to be total.
It doesn’t have to be total.
You’re allowed to feel badly about it. You’re allowed to not want to get out of bed in the morning. You’re allowed to be angry about it, to wallow in your own misery, to feel like it’s unfair to you. Hell, many of us have. I wasn’t okay with it for a long time, I denied it in myself, even before I knew the word.
For me, becoming okay with it was realizing that society had drawn a hole on my heart where there wasn’t one. I was looking at myself and thinking that I needed someone else to make me whole but I didn’t. I realized that actually, I wasn’t missing anything. Our inside stuff (not like, our organs, but our mental inside stuff) is made of… it’s like legos. Sometimes, we don’t have the same legos as other people. But we can still build cool things with it. Our live can be just as wonderful and scary and fulfilling as anyone else’s. We’re not missing any pieces. Or if it helps to think about it - EVERYONE is missing some pieces. Because no one has all the pieces. We’re all just building on ourselves with so many experiences, and moments and relationships. And you’re going to find some rather wonderful ones in the future, I promise you. And your lego tower or starship or whatever won’t be half empty because you’re aromantic. It’ll just be a different type of starship.
In the end, I really don’t know how to help. What helped me might not help you. There’s also another reply that I wrote a while ago for a different person, but it might help you as well? It’s written here.
Good luck with everything!
This particular post was an obvious photo of self harm, and was showing up in the most popular trending things. It was obviously being shared/liked enough where it was being shoved to the front page.
I’m not going to go into great detail about what it was. That’s kind of the point of this post. The message you need to take away is this:
If it’s an explicit image of self harm, if it’s an attempt at romanticizing self harm, if it’s a post with a self harm image talking about how ‘broken things are still beautiful’, or if it’s a post about how sad self harm is.
DO NOT LIKE IT, UPVOTE IT, OR REPOST IT ANYWHERE.
These things can be extremely triggering, they can cause someone to relapse, or panic, or any of the above. EVEN IF THE IMAGE IS ATTACHED TO A LITTLE INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE ABOUT HOW YOU HAVE TO KEEP FIGHTING. DO NOT ALLOW IT TO REACH A LEVEL OF POPULARITY WHERE UNPROTECTED PEOPLE COULD SEE IT.
There’s a reason that sensible people who want to talk about self harm in a healthy way do not use explicit imagery. Even people I know who have done self-harm before do not post photos of their scars without a forewarning, or at least they put it under a Read More.
Please do not do the thing.
And if you see someone else doing the thing, please kindly and politely stop them and ask them to pass on the message.

#DidYouKnow #Deaf #DeafAwareness #education #SignLanguage #advocacy #NMSCares
This is actually sadly relevant. I had a lecture this summer about sign languages and Deaf culture and when I was finished, one hearing girl from the audience stayed behind to ask me some more question.
She asked me: “And your parents use sign language, right?” Like it was the most obvious thing in the world and why is she even asking this, of course my parents must know sign language.
"No… They don’t, actually."
"And how do you communicate, then?"
"But… isn’t that complicated for you?"
"It is, sometimes."
"They probably didn’t have time for it…" she said. And I haven’t the heart to tell her that my father was offered sign language courses several times, that I offered to teach them some signs and that they always refused.
But I did told her: “It is not that rare. Most of deaf people I know have hearing parents who don’t sign.”
It’s the sad truth. People are willing to pay for surgeries to “repair” their children, but they are not willing to learn something to communicate with them.
i’d like to add onto this with my own personal experience, too. i was born hearing, but as soon as i was diagnosed as HoH, my parents didn’t do anything to learn ASL. they were quick to put me in classes, but they wouldn’t when i suggested to them that they take the classes with me so that we could learn.
i’ve tried to teach my mom how to sign numerous times, but she always says that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” to which i tell her that she can learn, she just doesn’t want to. which is true. neither of my parents want to learn how to sign, but they want me to be able to hear perfectly so they don’t have to repeat themselves.
little do they know that their frustration with me not being able to hear them would be solved if they would just learn how to sign. maybe signing something to me once instead of repeating themselves four times and then getting mad would be more beneficial.
I’m absolutely shocked at this, it’s never crossed my mind that many parents wouldn’t even try to meet their hard of hearing kids halfway.
A day care that I was at for a short time for Uni used to teach kids from about 12 months sign language as a sort of second language (kids sometimes don’t feel like talking or need a way of communicating with other children who are hearing impaired) and I don’t think i once saw parents use it. It wasn’t even hard words or actions it was things like ‘drink’, ‘toilet’, ‘finished’
My aunt is deaf and not only did my grandmother refuse to learn to sign, she insists that Aunt Jan isn’t actually deaf. She’d rather holler at her three times than learn to sign.
LEARN TO SPEAK SIGN LANGUAGE IF YOUR KID IS SPEAKING SIGN LANGUAGE
THIS MAKES ME SO ANGRY WHAT THE HELL PEOPLE
You’re not a piece of trash anon, you’re a piece of the world, and you are super important. And it’s okay to feel hurt and sad, and you’re allowed to want things, even if they never happen. It might not be too okay now, but I promise it’ll be okay again in the future, and you’ll have happy moments, and someone new who makes you just as happy!
