"There was nothing wrong in Leah’s world. Nothing changed. What if we took Leah’s perspective? Nothing has changed. There’s nothing to fix. There’s nothing wrong, she’s just deaf. I’m short, he’s tall, she’s deaf. Okay. Maybe we as the grownups need to learn something new…"

I love Rachel Coleman. I wish every parent with a deaf child had someone like her to tell them that their kids are OKAY. That focusing so much on “I want my kid to be able to talk” is not actually the important thing.  Actual communication is about more than being able to say words. Deaf kids are okay. They can communicate, they can learn, they can be successful. 

I think so much could change if we could just change that first conversation.  If we could take away that sense of tragedy and panic and the focus on all the things that the kid isn’t going to hear or say, and turn it in to… how can we give them access to language? How can we teach them that they are awesome, amazing, beautiful people? Everyone has different abilities, different skills, and being deaf is NOT the end of the world. 

So much about the way deaf kids are treated from day one teaches them that there’s something wrong with them. This medical model view of deafness does nothing for the child, nothing for the family, and everything for the medical professionals who - no matter what their intentions are - have no knowledge of Deaf culture or ASL and quite frankly make their money off of trying to fix something that doesn’t need to be fixed. 

"We saw that speech is just a skill… Why would we spend all of her spare time to get her to say words from a language she can’t even access?! And so, her eyes worked, her hands worked, and we signed with her."

Seems so simple, doesn’t it? 

this is so important

No but can you just imagine Mrs Weasley getting to the magical afterlife one day and the first thing she sees is a girl with red hair sprinting towards her.

For a fleeting moment she thinks it’s Ginny, but as the girl comes closer she recognises the kind smile and the emerald eyes that are shining with tears. It’s Lily Potter.

Lily pulls Mrs Weasley into a tight hug and can only whisper three words before dissolving into tears.

"Thank you, Molly."

Just an experiment. Reblog if you actually give a fuck about male victims of domestic violence and rape.

Of fucking course

What sick bastard doesn’t

"You’d be surprised", said Xaldien, who just lost four followers and received a lovely "men can’t be raped" anon shortly after reblogging this the first time.

Yowch, disgusting.
