Daphne had to hear from the chef earlier this evening that she can’t be in the kitchen because it’s dangerous.
HOWEVER, there’s ways around it. For starters, the chef could have looked at her so that she could read his lips. It’s not that difficult to do. Daphne put up mirrors. There’s that. Then you could always have daphne cut prepare everything AWAY from the commotion in the kitchen or at least away from where the “traffic” would be, and away from the stoves. Accidents happen, however I don’t think this show is very accurate. Deaf people are VERY aware of their surroundings. Even more aware when they are in a dangerous setting such as a kitchen or while driving. (did you know that Deaf drivers are the safest drivers?)
I’m sorry I just had to say something. I am Deaf myself and I’m telling you, there ARE ways around things. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t so something because of a damn “disability”. Hell DISABILITY DOES NOT mean you are disabled. You are just dis able. You do things differently but still accomplishing the same goal as everyone else. Hell… I was given an amazing opportunity over the past spring for a job and I did it all by myself, with no help. I went though what Daphne had to go through. In the end I had to prove myself to my bosses that I can do just like everyone else. I have a brand new job now and I have to prove myself all over again but that’s okay because I KNOW what im capable of. Daphne had to do the same. I’m proud of her. She may be a fictional character but you know what? A fictional character is making an example for everyone else in the Deaf community.
Thank You for reading. I just needed to get this off my chest. haha :)
They were the ones of Mall officers hand cuffing and kicking Deaf people that were trying to defend themselves. The police officers didn’t know that they were Deaf and so the deaf men couldn’t hear the officers’ commands so ended up kicking him to get his attention.
I was MAAAD when I watched those tapes.
I’m not sure if I can find it again but it was on youtube for a good while a couple of years ago. It was on the news and everything.
I like him with Bay …for now. but since I have a bestfriend that i’ve known since I was little, I know how it’s like so I actually like Daphne and Emmett together :) They have alot in common, they understand how they feel about each other’s deafness. They know each other so well. :) I like him with Bay because it gives him a chance to explore a bit in the dating world and see what he wants in a wife. so yeah… :)
