Defining who is “deaf enough” always gives me chest pain. For one thing, that’s a bludgeon the Deaf Culture uses to beat many deafened people with. Whether they intend to leave deafened people bleeding on the sidewalk outside the deaf club (figuratively), that is a frequent emotional consequence, and I personally reject contrived and imposed definitions of “deaf enough”.
Read on when you get there. And there is one part I liked and that's the telephone test. So true. I've no problem with that one. But all in all it's funny reading if you get into the tempo of the way the author writes it. Little stabs here and there. But funny nonetheless.
With this website you know it's a bit "old" in terms of internet-ese because the author says "World Wide Web" in one webpage section instead of using a plain old word like "internet". That's a cool world. Rolls off your tongue when you say it. "World Wide Web" is not so cool. Sounds wacky like Elmer Fudd talking you silly wascal. Well, you will if try and say those three words 20 times as fast as you can. Good oral exercise, too.
The site is not a blog per se but a website with some interesting info, so to speak, for those on the up and up on how to deal with one's own hearing loss. Good place to look around if you're bored.
Or if you are extra bored you may want to revist the history of DPN in my blog that I did exactly one year ago called "The Unspoken Side of Deaf President Now Protest" for a little eye opening version on what happened then that many people do not want to acknowledge.
