I was raised by deaf parents, AMA
The official term for me is CODA: Child of a Deaf Adult(s). Both my parents are deaf, this makes things a lot more interesting (and difficult). Especially when you're really young and don't fully understand it. I am equipped with funny stories, and not so funny stories. I'm also pretty aware of social issues regarding the Deaf Community. So ask away.
Edit: sorry guys I didn't expect everyone to hop on this. I'm super pumped to answer all your questions and as I am recently unemployed I will have plenty of time to do that. But a friend just came over so I must entertain. Keep asking. I promise ill get to then in a bit Thanks guys!
Edit: I'm back, and typing with my thumbs on an Android so this will be painfully slow. Also, to clear some confusion I've noticed, I am a hearing female. Not deaf, no penis. Sorry to those who were mislead.
Edit: OKAY my phone is dying, thumbs hurting. I'll be back, thanks for all the questions. I didn't expect it all. My mom and dad say thanks too this made their day. My mom also wanted me to say, shes still very observant, and my grandma still lives with us.
Edit: my moms schools website, http://www.millneck.org/index.php Mill Neck school for the deaf in New York. I'm not sure how much this proves anything but i'm working on something better. My mom is refusing to let me record a video of her signing.
Edit: so overwhelmed, so appreciative of the interest, and so entertained by people and the dumb shit they say. To all the Puerto rican CODA's I am your long lost sister/cousin. To everyone else, you're awesome, i'll keep trying to get to as many questions as I can throughout the day. THANKS AGAIN GUYS.
