A Hearing's Take on Gallaudet Education 1.1
Jean I feel that it's necessary to publish my post at DeafDC.com for the readers who might not read DeafDC's comments. Here's my full comment:Carol, regarding your comment, I'd like to say that I'm rejoiced that I'm not alone (as a hearing woman without Deaf background) in this discussion.You and I had come upon the same conclusion regarding education in Gallaudet and [...]

Reductio ad Fernandesum
Jean Per the posts at the other weblogs and my comments at the DeafDC.com, I have some thoughts on the speculation and discussion of "ism" and "Fernandes isn't Deaf enough".The truth is, before I came here in America, the concept of racism was thoroughly foreign to me. To construe what I mean, there were racists and racism movement in Europe without any doubt, but racism [...]

Jean I'm under considerable stress thus I want to keep it light. I don't know whether or not you'd care about this post but this Sunday, a prominent political science professor at my university is planning to give an hour and a half lecture about the Gallaudet protests. His pseudonym is Nicholas. The political science professor is renowned for two things:  Nicholas gave [...]

So loud I am deaf
Jean Paraphrased:Deaf people have the tendency to be louder due to the fact they can't hear their own sounds they create and regulate them.I have to agree to disagree.In truth, it's infinitely simple-minded to place the blame on deafness squarely. Plenty of neighbors commonly called the police on young hearing college students or hearing music groups for noise disturbance [...]

Jean's Drifting Day, ASC and a Deaf boy on PBS
Jean Hi everyone! For your information, I couldn't access my gmail account. It kept kickng me out every time I logged in to check my email. I don't know what technical problem I have. I had to sit it out and wait for my roommate to come home this Tuesday from the field trip she is on right now to fix it. Sorry for the inconvenience. =(There, altough, is a bright side. The [...]

Jean Blog triumphalism was the word my Sociology professor employed to portray the Rathergate and Downing Street memo scandals. As a student of Sociology, as soon as Firefox unfolded the DeafRead list and Jared's post "sociological" title was the first word that caught my eye. Naturally. The truth is, that was a genuinely creepy moment of the day for me because yesterday, [...]

Dissenters of Gallaudet: Draw thy sword
Jean "Yesterday I dared to struggle. Today I dare to win." by Bernadette DevlinIt is certainly true that I never attended Gallaudet nor am I a versed person in Deaf culture. Given my lack of Galladuet or Deaf culture experience, you might be think that I shouldn't make a post about it. You rightly think so but I'd like to share my mother's adage with you: "You can't be [...]

Jean Dear Jared, Tayler, Ridor, Moi and "Anonymous", Check my response in my old post. The eleven people who sent me emails, I responded back! =) I'm terribly sorry about not being able to respond promptly. More about my week's absence in the lowermost comment below.Anonymous pitched a strike-outable baseball into Europe's sociocultural values which knocked me out of the [...]

Deafhood: "Wall of Shame"
Jean Jared Evans had some thoughtful elucidation on Deafhood. I had been trying to undertake this contention about Deafhood but I recoiled, inasmuch as I'm hearing; thereupon I wasn't sure if I did have the privilege to divulge my thoughts on it.[Annotions for people who sent me the emails and LTL's posters, check the lowermost comment below.]Until Jared's post; in the [...]

For whom the blog tolls
Jean Forewarning - This is a controversial post. For your information, I'm still outrightly new to Deaf culture.As I briefly illuminated in my post two weeks ago, Stefanie accosted me about DeafRead [annotation for Jared - with my roommate's help, I made a separate post]. Heretofore, in addition, as a best friend would do, I excitingly detailed out about DeafRead I [...]

Deaf girls never say no (continue 2.1)
Jean Thank you, Otto, for the elucidated comment as usual and for framing the stereotypical speculation! Otto's comment: "evidential reasoning from first-hand experience" which was heartily acquiesced upon by Chris, my former Deaf classmate and now ASL tutor. Today was my first ASL tutoring session with Chris. We had rationalized our misunderstanding that we had a few weeks ago. We agreed [...]

Deaf girls never say no (continue)
Jean As I went outside to meet my friends for routine social norms, I saw Marco walking with his hands in his pockets. He stopped walking abruptly and turned to me when he heard me calling his name. We chitchatted for several minutes before I asked him about the "deaf girls never say no" statement. He shifted his legs nervously but [...]

Deaf girls never say no...
Jean ...that was a hearing male classmate from my ASL class whom sneeringly claimed. Unmistakably, I plainly didn't know what that meant.There were four hearing male classmates from my ASL class, standing in a huddle, holding coffee cups while chitchatting nearby Joseph's classroom. As in reference to my old post, it made me curious as of to what and why they [...]

Stefanie's cautionary observation and a tidbit
Jean I saw Joseph, my ASL professor, at the cafe yesterday. I was supposed to join in with my friends in the other section but I joined him and chitchatted (basic ASL and PnP) with him for half an hour. When Joseph left for his class, I left for the other section to meet my friends who were still eating and [...]

The latest news on the San Diego Deaf boy
Jean I just heard the news on the radio. The suspect who allegedly assaulted a Deaf young boy is being currently tracked down and searched by the San Diego policemen and crime fighting organization. I hadn't caught the name of the organization. But there is one puzzling thing: they're chasing after only one suspect, not several suspects as the San Diego [...]

Men, Where Art Thou?
Jean This is quickly proving to be an unforgettable day. Only several minutes before 9:30 am for the ASL class, I was requested to stop by the OSAR (Office of Student Academic Records) to meet the clerk whether or not if they accepted my petition for EUL (Excess Unit Limit). For as I had registered the classes including the ASL class [...]

A short thought on classification
Jean Thank you, Mark Drolsbaugh! I heartily agree with you on classification and ASL. ASL is undeniably, unquestionably a beautiful language.As to referring to the "Other Communication Disorders" subject, lately, I have been thinking a bit about the classifications. Before, Deaf people suggested to me to abstain from using "hearing imparied" as in reference to Deaf people I erroneously designated them [...]

File ASL under ... what?
Jean I hadn't bothered to check the course descriptions, programs or departments in the catalog to identify which category American Sign Language was classified under until this morning. But the catalog was nowhere to be found. To find it, I cleaned up my stuffs; sorted out the humongous stack of papers that had accumulated on the side of my computer desk [...]

Walk through the door into the new world
Jean I got in! I had never been that excited about taking any classes until the ASL Level One class where I barely got in. As to follow some members's suggestions, my employer granted me a LWP (Leave With Pay) day and after consulting with my guidance counselor, I was determined to take the course in American Sign Language to learn [...]
