#itooamhuman by social media class @ CSD
It is normal for a person to wonder what it is like to be in someone else’s shoes. Sometimes the curiosity goes too far and can turn offensive, demeaning or annoying. Social Media decided to go around on campus and randomly ask Deaf individuals to share a saying they experienced that put them into a position of feeling inferior, annoyed or offended. The most common saying was, “but you don’t look deaf!” Thus, our project is called #itooamhuman with intention to teach the audience that we are normal, not some interesting subhuman to dissect or assume upon.
