Christian Private It’s not so cut and dry to say one simply needs to learn the language in order to be with a deaf person. Certainly being able to communicate in a visual language would help bridge the gap, but they would also have to be aware and sensitive of what the Deaf experience is; it’s not just about living without one of the five senses, but more importantly, what it’s like for them to live with oppression. Even as a kid who wore hearing aids but identified herself as a hearing person, I used to think, oh I’ll just learn sign language and I’ll be able to communicate with others who can’t hear and it will be awesome! So I learned the language, but I also learned along the way that those of us who live dependant on being able to hear really are so oblivious to the stigmas and prejudices of deafness. The Deaf really could not care any less about being able to hear, they just want to be treated as equal. I don’t mean to go off on a rant, but I just want to point out to those who answer that they would choose the deaf person because they simply need to learn the language – what happens if the Deaf person decides they want nothing to do with you? They might rather be with someone deaf and have a deaf family. The cultural divide is not always about race or religion.

Dating in Thailand has its traps and if you are not careful you will fall in one. And if you are naive and dazzled enough you might not be able to get out of it. Waking up next to a woman who is not a woman is definitely the worst case scenario. I honestly thank god, Buddha and every force in the universe that I never made this terrible experience. Thanks to the wisdom of a 79 year-old friend of my grandmother who lives in Thailand since the early s I learned very soon that I have to be careful.
