« on: February 22, 2015, 07:53:21 PM »
So yeah I have been on CG for some time now but never made a thread, guess I should put some info about my self in bullet points
  • Both of my parents are deaf
  • I can hear because my mother had lost her hearing at a young age, but my father was born deaf
  • I may be losing my hearing, I still dont know
  • I have donated a total of $100 to Catalyst Gaming
  • My real name is Dustin King
  • I found the nickname Doosty King from a friend of mine
  • I'm a uncle to a little 3 week old girl
  • Sign language is actually my first language, I didn't learn English until I entered elementary. (So if you ever hear me slurring words or mispronouncing them thats why.)
  • I make metal art stuff

Soooo true, lol.

I have a couple of questions regarding deafness and sign language, purely out of interests. I have no idea if this is personal, or if you are willing to answer them at all. So certainly don't answer if you don't want to. Anyway:

- Is sign language actually like a "translation" from another language? For example, do you "read" sign language in English (or something else) in your head, or is it just a complete separate language?

- Is it difficult that both of your parents are deaf? Like, are there times when you wish they weren't because you couldn't do some things (idk what) that require hearing?

- I've seen some videos on Youtube where some kind of clinic managed to "fix" a deaf guy's ears and he could hear again. Is this possible for your parents, and have they considered to look into this themselves? Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsOo3jzkhYA

- Is it difficult for your parents to communicate with other people that don't know sign language? I can imagine that you would be able to translate English and sign language back and forth, but you aren't always around your parents I guess?

Meh that's all I can think of. I'm just interested to get to know a bit more about something I don't know much about. :P
Check out my Youtube channel with all kinds of cool videos including LP's which I'm currently working at. Don't forget to give feedback as well. ;)

Yes, sign language is just another way to speak a language, sorta like Braille, and Morse code. Sign language can actually mean several different languages. I speak ASL which is American Sign Language (English). I know a few people that speak FSL which is French Sign Language.

Yes it can, and some times not. It hard to describe, such as Im able to watch TV on full volume when everyone is asleep in their bed, its very important that they are in their bed, because they can feel the vibrations from the tv. Then theres another struggle I deal with, I'll never know whats it like to having hearing parents. They lastly there are times where I wish they could hear. Such as moving stuff THIS IS ANNOYING TO DEAL WITH. So last week I was moving drywall into my house with my dad, the back end fell off (its really dark right now and he cant see in the dark) so my dad thought I was holding the back end. Nope, there he goes dragging the drywall into the house without knowing I wasnt holding the back. But yeah its a pain
