"Deaf"Culture? What about "ASL"?
Deaf Chipmunk Discussion about Deaf Culture and ASL Culture. Why do we call our culture, Deaf Culture? Why don't we call ASL culture or BSL culture or RSL culture instead of Deaf Culture?

Carl Schroeder brought up his concerns about ASL video clips with subtitles. He argues that ASL and English are not compatible due to their differences. They are like orange and apple. Other people have supported his argument and at t...

Enough of CI Discussion! Where is ASL?
Deaf Chipmunk I have noticed that there is a huge increase of C.I. discussions in Deafread! At first, I was willing to read articles of C.I. discussions but now, I am not very comfortable with that.

Medical Ethics - Deaf
Deaf Chipmunk For years, I have never thought about medical ethics until now. It seems that there are no formal medical ethics for deaf babies and children.Children with BiBi - ASL (receptive and expressive) and English (read and write - some with speech and listen) are in safety net.Children with AVT only (prohibited children from ASL) are NOT in safety net. They do not have any [...]
