Pierre Desloges (1779)

“I cannot understand how a language like sign language — the richest in expressions, the most energetic, the most incalculably advantageous in its universal intelligibility — is still so neglected and that only the Deaf speak it. That is, I confess, one of those irrationalities of the human mind I cannot explain.”

-Pierre Desloges (1779)

 

Biologically Deaf

I’m biologically deaf! I am not an audiologically or medically deaf guy. Oralism will never accept me. That is a good news for me personally but they have done to so many Deaf kids by taking away their true identity.
