:x my husband works as an Audiologist and would not recomend having your hearing tested this way- IF you really think you have a hearing problem then go to your GP and IF they think it's bad then they will refer you to your local Audilogy dept.
Online services like this are as bad as medical dictionarys- more resons for self diagnosis and hypercondriacts that have absolutely nothing wrong with them!!

that has nothing to do with it. it plays a background noise with numbers being spoken at different volumes. turning the speakers up also turns up the background noise so test is unaffected

I'll hear nothing, and I know I'm deaf. And wait for it, NORMAL!

Ditch the normal terminology people; the only thing it is doing is demonstrating your ignorance and making you look super stupid. All the test is showing (that's if you believe this marketing gimmick, by a deaf charity run by hearing people): you are hearing.

And you wouldn't say you were normal to refer to yourself as e.g. white.

I'm sure no one intended to offend people with hearing difficulties here.

They are not inferring that deaf people are abnormal. Only saying that the results to the test

taken here were "within the normal boundaries" for hearing. Is that so bad?
I'm not keen on charity in general, I believe if there is a need for something, then we should try to meet that need as a society. Having said that, would you like to discriminate between everyone by disallowing hearing people from working in a charity for deaf people?:thinking:

Would society find something amiss if a women's organisation was run entirely by men? Or a black organisation run by white people?

Last time I looked, RNID SMT - 100% hearing, and huge implications because of it. There's a whole difference between hearing people being paternalistic / taking over and those who are allies. Unfortunately, in deaf organisations there's way too much of the former.

There's a lot of issues with labelling, and perhaps its a good to let deaf people take a lead here. :thumbsup:

Maybe it's the RNIB you need to address. They really should know the feelings of the people they are there to serve.
I agree with you that labelling is a problem for lots of people, but I do think there is also a danger of seeing offense where it doesn't really exist?

exactly. Some people actively look out for signs of discrimination and find fault where none exists.

I think you mean the RNID. Have been attempting to address this for the past 12 years by various modes. I'm a well seasoned activist.

The word normal to label hearing people, is still offensive because its weighted. There's a lot of historical oppression attached to. Like it or not, hearing people claiming the word normal does have its implications (even if no conscious intention existed).

Same as say white or straight people might not fully appreciate the weight of some labels for black / gay people.

Listen to the minority group? :)

I'll probably get neg repped for this.

But check the dictionary again, you have it wrong. Calling others stupid when they are right, makes you look bad. The word is not wieghted its meaning is fair and simple. If you remove the word normal from teh dictionary what else are you going to use in its stead? A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet as shakeseare said. Whatever word you use instead to imply the meaning of normal, would be turned into a slur from oversensitive politically correct people. Then we'd be back to square one and banning that word as well, just because politically correct people want to reshape reality into a lie.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/normal
Normal -noun
[LIST=1]
[*]the average or mean: Production may fall below normal.
[*]the standard or type.[/LIST]Normal -adjective
[LIST=1]
[*]Conforming with, adhering to, or constituting a norm, standard, pattern, level, or type; typical: normal room temperature; one's normal weight; normal diplomatic relations.
[*]Biology Functioning or occurring in a natural way; lacking observable abnormalities or deficiencies.[/LIST]


The natural state of our ears is to hear, that is what they were intended for, so being deaf is not normal, from a biological purpose point of view nor from a statistical point of view (deafness is rare), just as being short sighted is not normal, and so on and so on. This is not to insult deaf people or any other disabled people out there, but a disability is a disability. Living in a delusional world that sees disabilitys as just differences like skin colour, just so we can all be happy being politically correct is denying reality, which prevents real change from happening that would lead to real improvements in the lives of people with disabilites.

If there is no problem then there is no need to seek a solution, if it ain't broke why fix it as they say. Which means no point in looking to learn sign language, no point in looking to cure/fix it, etc. The only good thing from such a view of the world would probably be the removal of disabled parking bays, allowing everyone to use them. Other than that, believing in delusions does more harm than good usually.
