I cringed when the subtitles use “hearing-impaired”. That’s not how we call ourselves. Just “Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing” label, please. Didn’t you know some states ban the word “hearing-impaired”? It’s an offensive term. Please replace the subtitles NOW. This is not to be taken lightly and it doesn’t look good on your part. I know you have good intentions to make the Starbucks Parody I love dogs and coffee shirt video and show to the world but it needs to be done right. I would love to learn to sign. I taught my kids some simple signs before they were verbal and it really helped me communicate with them. I would love to learn.
Please correct the word of Hearing” do apply people who are deaf using, or late deaf knows no asl or whatever the Starbucks Parody I love dogs and coffee shirt varied spectrum of “Deaf” is the better word to use regardless of hearing people who turned deaf in late age still part of “Deaf” category. There are absolutely so many different kinds of coffee places but this is absolutely a great thing they did. I, however, don’t drink this coffee I only drink my Folgers or Kwik Trip coffee. They only ones I like. But you go, guys. I have a hearing-impaired family. Special needs family as well and anything to make things easier for all kinds of people is just awesome.
I think this is awesome, life-changing, makes the hearing impaired feel more comfortable, makes them feel like they are part of the community and can feel independent. They need to have this is Starbucks. Hard of hearing, or Deaf…not hearing impaired! But, I applaud this style of Starbucks! Semantics aside, everyone deserves to be heard! This is Wonderful! Ok man, great news about Starbucks. Could you learn even more about the Starbucks Parody I love dogs and coffee shirt culture and know it’s Deaf or? Not impaired in any sense. I don’t want to share video just for that huge blunder This Starbucks is awesome, but yet we see people who are all upset by something. I’m pretty sure whoever made this video wasn’t trying to offend anyone. People just relax and drink your coffees and be happy.
