Thank you Mandl, Drakwlya, and Geddyn for the polite discussion!For anyone else reading the comments: I want to reiterate that everyone is happy and thinks Mandl is awesome! :-)
im not deaf, but i utterly loathe voice comms, there is always at least one super bigoted jerk who spews their orange man rhetoric, and i dont want to hear it. a guild for the deaf could be a godsend for me.
On the subject of words and their meaning (implied or otherwise), in the UAE they changed how people who have... different abilities are referenced. Before, the term disability was in common usage. But as of about two years or so, the term used is "people of determination". I don't know how that changes the context of the words, but as a layman, it definitely seems less polarizing.
Nothing but respect for these heroes!
This is absolutely amazing. ♥ My mother is deaf, as are her two sisters. She would sometimes come into my room when I first started playing WoW and watch me for hours. She loved the look of the game and was often asking me to make screenshots of the world and print them out for her scrap-booking projects. A few times I would ask her if she wanted to play, and she would try to play. Even though she didn't understand it, she was always laughing and having fun. Definitely going to send her this interview and see if she'll give WoW a try again.♥
Amazing and congrats! I'm a deaf wownerd too and really would like to join a deaf / hoh guild in a european server. Are there any?
