FABERRY ARMY

As most of you guys know, I’m Deaf. I grew up in an all-Deaf family. My parents are Deaf. My siblings are Deaf. I grew up attending various public schools with interpreters and eventually graduated from a Deaf school. I don’t know a single sound. I can’t hear your songs. I can’t speak a single word - including my own name. I only communicate through sign language. 
But that doesn’t make me any less of a person. Unfortunately, the rest of the world seems to think so. 
Why? Because there is an immense amount of non-captioned videos out there on the Internet. Including the major websites ranging from CNN to Amazon. Osama Bin Laden died? LOL, you will find out five hours after everybody does! Barack Obama announcing to the world that he’s for gay marriage? LULZ NUB. You will have no idea for a day or two.  
I know, I know. You guys are not Deaf. It doesn’t really affect you guys. But it freaking sucks, man. In fact, that’s what attracted me to Tumblr. In here, I’m kinda like you guys. Because there are gif sets complete with subtitles. We are able to squee over the same things. And when there are gif sets WITHOUT subtitles, you guys are kinda like me. You don’t know what the people in the gif sets are talking about. 
But as soon as there are videos, I’m suddenly left out while you guys squee along. And it blows. Go to this video to get an idea of what my daily life is like.
So come on, people. Today is the day. Please go to this link and find out what you can do to help out the Deaf community.  
If not, please try to reblog this today. Spread the word. #captionTHIS!!!
