Profit in Sexual Abuse on YouTube: It’s Google, Too.

So. This is going to be long. Strap in.

I’ve been a skosh slapdash about doing the appropriate reading, so I just caught up on all this Sam Pepper stuff. If you haven’t, watch the video I posted…

Sarah Lumen Heine is doing Inktober again! I was the lucky recipient last year of some of her drawings. They’re super rad.

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?"
"Talking?"
"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.


I would learn anything I could for my son. Am I shocked that other parents don’t consider that? No, sadly.

Aw yeah I can’t wait for critique on this today. (what an obnoxiously large name and year Joni) I’ll post progress work later this week. (and also other project work because I forgot about the previous week’s work. whoops) 

True story.

Loving it.

Soooo…y’know those things where you can flatten pennies and stamp a design into them? I’m not saying that we are going to successfully be able to do that for this year’s P4A…but if we did, what would you have stamped into it? This is a template, please submit designs to hankandjohn@gmail.com

Hate pennies? Take them out of commission. .. permanently. Reblogging for later I totally want to send in some designs.

Reblogging 100% because we’ve got a fellow nerdfighter here.
