Speaking of Anonymous Comments

I discovered a second one . . . or possibly a first.
This also makes me think I may have been wrong about the sex of the person who posted the other anonymous comment. It's possibly a man. I MAY have a decent idea of who is posting these comments . . . but it's a slim chance.

However, to make certain he/she is able to read my response to the second anonymous comment, I'm posting it here separately.

First, here is his/her comment:

you shouldn't be teaching deaf kids how to speak, you are merely oppressing them from their true identity.

Deaf kids shouldn't be speaking english but sign fluently in ASL, period.

you are not a kick ass therapist, but to hurt children.

you should feel ashamed of yourself.


Second, here is my response:

Someone is either an idiot, or doesn't pay attention at all. I'm voting on idiot.

1st of all - I DON'T teach deaf children ANYTHING. I don't work with the deaf. I work with children who are language or speech impaired ONLY. At one point I wanted to work with the deaf, but I didn't because there are not enough positions in AR to allow me to do that.

2nd of all - you are entitled to your opinion, however wrong it is. Deaf children should have the OPTION to do what THEY want. I work at a camp every year with deaf children (NOT in a speech pathologist capacity) who had cochlear implants because THEY chose to. NOT everyone wants to limit themselves to ASL or Signed English. It's kind of like American English speakers learning Spanish. It doesn't hurt them it expands them.

The only thing I am ashamed of is people like you who are close minded. Deaf individuals CAN sign and speak. It's not ONE or the OTHER. It is your prejudice which makes their choice that much harder.

I am a big proponent of ASL and Signed English. I took SEVERAL classes in college on it and have deaf friends whom I communicate with via sign. I think it's a beautiful language and EVERY deaf individual should learn to sign first and then decide if they WANT to expand upon that.

I really hope you read this, because it's obvious that you need your eyes opened and that you make a LOT of incorrect assumptions.

Oh, and by the way, even deaf individuals who chose to sign may need speech-language pathology. They may have a swallowing disorder. They may have disorganized language. They may have a below normal language age.

I hate when people decide to derogatorily comment on a profession they know nothing about. I don't just "teach kids to talk". Speech pathologists are so much more. We have more training on neurology than most doctors, we have training in feeding and swallowing, we perform cognitive therapy, language comprehension therapy, language expression therapy, articulation therapy, swallowing therapy, etc. etc. etc. The things YOU don't know about my profession could fill 100 pages.

Even a deaf individual who chooses sign as his ONLY form of expression MAY have a language disorder and still require my services. I know speech pathologists who work PURELY in sign.

So . . . in essence, you have two choices. Educate yourself or live in ignorance.


So, there you are.
If anyone else has any REAL questions about what I do or the populations I have, will and can work with, feel free to comment or email me at meghan_louise_bg@yahoo.com.

Hey, you know me, I can never pass up an opportunity to tell someone they're wrong . . . or why they're wrong.

I wish these idiots would educate themselves a little before spouting off. You don't see me whining at you about your career - - because I have no f***ing idea what the hell you do.

Let me know what's up this week. We can definitely do a meet for a drink, see the snazzy hair, bitch about work and morons scene.

Current Price $0.15
================================

Please read the following Announcement in its Entierty and
Consider the Possibilities
Watch this One to Trade!

Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market
genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stock appears poised for growth! This one will not

Keep Reading!!!!

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This stock will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!


GO EGTY!

If the Deaf Children want to learn to speak, I say more power to them. What I am more worry about is the force part. I grew up forced to speak, and I hate every minutes of it. My parents knew I did not want to learn to use my voice, and yet they forced me to go to speech classes. The result, nothing really improved, because I refused to learn how to use my voice.
