Misconceptions of Deaf People

Some misconceptions about our community that a lot of hearing people don't realize are not only wrong, but insulting. 
We can read better than you think we can. 
Our bluntness is not because we are trying to be mean, we are trying to knock some sense into people. 


We are Deaf... but that doesn't mean we're dumb
We may be a collective culture but we are not carbon copies of each other. 
Your jokes about us are not funny.
