Hey everyone and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

I’ve been thinking. As you know, I’ve had a lot experiences with non-Deaf people when they find out I’m Deaf. They freeze up and don’t know what to do. They’re in complete shock or they’ll awkwardly smile at me then walk away. Sometimes they even look down pretending they’re busy. It’s something I’ve always noticed. So, why not use my show and give you all some tips on what you can do when you meet a Deaf person for the first time. My tips will help you be more prepared!

One of the most important things, be patient. Don’t freak out and get bent out of shape. Relax, it’s okay. Let Deaf people take the lead in communication. We’ve experienced and navigated the world for hundreds and hundreds of years, especially engaging with hearing people. Over the years, we know a thing or two when it comes to different approaches of communicating. My suggestion to you, the hearing people watching. You could sign this. “Engage, how?” Again, “Engage, how?” Easy, right? “Engage, how?” Deaf people will see that you’re trying and meet you halfway with communication. The conversation gets easier and easier.   Don’t freeze up! Get out of your comfort zones! Realize we can communicate. Us, Deaf people are just like you hearing people, we enjoy having conversations with different people.

Let’s go back to the original question, what to do and how to communication when you meet a Deaf person for the first time? You can text back and forth. As you know, almost every person has a smartphone and everyone’s texting away already. It’s not that hard. There’s also Siri, speech to text, and text to speech apps. Which aren’t that bad, right? It does take some time, but it’s worth it. Trust me!

Don’t forget there’s body language and don’t be shy! I know in hearing culture, it’s not really encouraged to be expressive on the face and the body. Get over it and be more comfortable! It’s like playing a game of Charades. It’s kind of the same concept with Deaf people but keep in mind, American Sign Language (ASL) is a completely different than gesturing. ASL is an actual language. Whereas gesture is a means of communication to be understood when two people don’t know the same language. So, don’t assume that if someone gestures that means they have a limited intelligence. It’s just one of the many approaches as a mean of communication, without using English or ASL.

There are so many ways to communicate. Don’t give up! Deaf people will give you hearing people a lot of respect for making the effort to engage and include us in the conversation.

I hope this episode helps my hearing fans feel more confident when engaging with Deaf people.

Thank you for watching my show!

Is H.R. 620 Going to Destroy the ADA?

This episode discusses H.R 620 being passed. It has the potential to possibly destroy the ADA law that protects the Deaf community which could have a huge impact on Deaf people’s access to communication and language.

Hello everyone and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

There are so many things happening and coming up fast I can’t even keep up! I feel one situation in particular needs to be discussed. A situation that deeply concerns the Disabled Community. H.R. 620, which was a proposed bill that really relates with buildings and making sure they’re wheelchair accessible. Whether it’s wheelchair ramps or making sure that restroom facilities are accessible in terms of things being at arm’s length for little people for example. For Deaf people, fire alarms that emit light! The bill relates to building accessibility and not so much of communication accessibility.

When talking about buildings, if a building doesn’t have visual fire alarm alerts, wheelchair ramps, and height measurement consideration for things to be easily accessible like restrooms and water fountains. The people who need the accommodations need to write a letter and wait 60 days. Within 120 days the facility needs to take the proper actions and make changes to be more accessible. Once that is all done, there’s no need for a lawsuit. Now, if after all that time no action for changes were made, then a lawsuit can be filed.

This is known as the Notice and Cure Period. Which basically prevents lawyers from having a field day filing lawsuits for an easy payday. It also protects small businesses and gives them time to make the accommodations without being hit with a lawsuit immediately.

Members of the Disabled Community have concerns that this will weaken the ADA law. The Deaf Community also has concerns that this bill throws the ADA law to the ground and will make life go back to before the ADA law was passed. Both the Disabled and Deaf Community fought hard in making sure they have equal opportunities and equal rights just like their able bodied counterparts. We all want the same things, and that’s why the law is needed to ensure that happens.

I can tell you from a firsthand experience, I’ve experienced discrimination so many times I can’t even count. Believe me, people are taking advantage to save money and can’t be bothered to be inclusive of individuals with disabilities and the Deaf Community. It’s not just physical disabilities, there’s also linguistic minorities, like American Sign Language. We need interpreters in order to have access to communication and information. People will try to avoid and delay providing access because they claim it’s too expensive.

It concerns me, that people will have to wait a total of 180 days for accessibility accommodations. For example, if there’s a conference and I need access to it, I’d have to wait forever and miss the entire conference. Which makes us worried, how many bills will go far to weaken the ADA. Possibly throwing away all of our rights, and then we’d have to struggle all over again.

We need your advocacy. Support individuals with disabilities and make sure the ADA law is standing strong. So that we can be protected by the law to ensure we have accessibility. For the people watching, who are considered able bodied, make sure things are accessible for all. That’s my goal, I want all groups to have equal access to everything around them and equal opportunities!

Thank you for watching my show!

Hey everyone and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

Isn’t it unreal that Donald Trump came up with the idea that teachers should be armed with a gun at school? I was like… so unreal! Really? Come on! Teachers have a lot on their plate with the amount of responsibilities they already have. Now decisions are being made about adding guns to their workload. It must be overwhelming for our teachers.

I’m pretty sure the chances of bad things will happen more often and having more guns in schools will spread violence. Parents will be more likely to grieve with the added chance of their child being shot by accident. Which may lead parents going back to the school to do a shooting for revenge for their child. It all becomes an ongoing cycle that never stops.

The NRA, National Rifle Association makes millions off of shootings. They’ll always try to convince that there are so many reasons why a person needs a gun. Saying that people wouldn’t be victims if they were able to protect themselves with a gun. The NRA, always find excuses as to why people have the right to bear arms, they’re feeding guns to people. So many groups forming and arming themselves attack others. Is this system going to work? How could Donald Trump come up with this idea? To earn profits and they have no regard for the children? Schools should be a safe place for our children.

For three reasons:

Of course as we know, kids touch everything and anything they can get their little hands on. Their curiosity gets the best of them and something could go wrong if they got their hands on a gun and pulled the trigger. Duh! What do you expect? They’re kids! Who knows what they could do if they got ahold of a gun, shoot another kid or their teachers.

By arming our teachers, it will make kids fearful and uncomfortable to be around their teachers because they know they have a gun. To see a teacher’s gun on their side makes them feel weak and their teachers have all the power. They’ll be less likely to engage in conversation with their teachers because of fear. Fear causes so much psychological issues that can mess us up in the long run.

Remember, school is for the mind and not for our hands.

This could mean that children would have role models of teachers that threaten their students that if they misbehave to watch out because they have their guns at arms’ length. Which will instill a crippling fear to our kids. Resulting in these kids growing up with the mentality that if anyone messes with them that they better watch out because they’re armed. Maybe parents should be armed and use their gun as a way to discipline their kids. Where does it end?

But you have Trump and the NRA ready to get their hands at all the money. By providing and convincing people of “necessary training and guns.” Come on, seriously? It is so obvious, anyone can tell! And what’s more unreal… This is unreal. Like seriously unreal. It is like the epitome of unreal. Donald Trump saying if he were running schools there would be no shootings.

Come on! I still cannot believe he is actually running this country. Ew. That’s all I can say.

Thank you for watching my show!

Hello everyone and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

It’s an unreal time right now. It’s unreal to see the young people making a difference in response to the unfortunate shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, South Florida. I’m heart broken by this school shooting, that left 17 dead and many injured.

But, it’s really amazing how those survivors are standing up and fighting back to make a difference. I’m impressed with you, young people, out there giving us hope. Sometimes people get worried about who will run this country, who will be the future president, our leaders. But now, I see you, young people protesting and making a difference. Enough is enough!

You all are so inspiring and amazing! I’m really impressed by your #neveragain! Keep up the great work, guys! You really are making changes and a difference in so many places, resulting in many companies cutting their ties with the NRA. I applaud you all!

I know people are grieving and hurting from this recent tragedy, yet still you all are standing strong and are doing something about it! Wow, you all are brave group of people. I agree that guns need stricter laws and it needs to be harder for people with mental illness to have access to them. You guys are doing a great job! Thank you! I appreciate all that you’re doing!

I just want to say for the people who are angry with the young people that I mentioned. DON’T BE! They’re amazing young people who want to make a difference in. Which I applaud them. They’re not trying to remove your right to have a gun. They just want the laws to be stricter and make it harder for people with mental illness to have access to guns.

So many shootings happen because it’s so easy for people with mental illness to have access to guns. It’s a serious issue. We need gun laws reformed and improve our system!

I support these young kids 100%. To be clear, we’re not here to take your right to a gun as long as you’re mentally fit. We just want to make sure everyone is safe. As long as the government has guns, we should have guns as well. But an AR 15, for what? They’re for wars and schools are not war zones. AR 15s are killing machines that shoots multiple bullets at once. How can people run for their lives from an AR 15? It’s not right! Its purpose is for war, yet young people have easy access in obtaining an AR 15? Get real!

We need stricter gun laws! It needs to be more difficult for people to have access in owning a gun. Which is reasonable!

I applaud you, young people, you all inspire me!

I want to say something to Emma Gonzalez. You are remarkable! You are wonderful! I am impressed with your strength in calling out the bullshit. I agree, politicians and other adults are spewing bullshit left and right! Lives are being taken! C’mon government, do something about it! Over the years, it’s one shooting after the next.

You, young people, are really making difference. There are many of us behind you supporting you every step of the way to make it happen and it will!

Thank you for watching my show!

Hello everyone and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

You know how you’re reading an article online and usually on the right hand side you’ll see a little box that links you to another website. Of course as I’m looking at it, I think to myself it must be interesting and then I’m reading another article. I then notice on that website there’s another box on the side too, which links to me another interesting article. I couldn’t help myself. Before I knew it I was reading hundreds and hundreds of articles. I love to learn.

All that reading introduced me to the term “emotional fitness”. I thought to myself, “Emotional fitness, what’s that all about?” When I think of the word fitness, I think of going out for a workout, at least to me anyway. Emotional fitness, say what now? The more I kept reading, the more I was intrigued.

Right now, the world, especially our culture here in America, our emotions are out of whack, seriously. You all see what’s going on outside in our streets; so much violence it’s like a never ending maze. Negative thoughts consume us. What we witness consumes us. Whether it’s our environment, the workplace, and life’s stresses. So much is going on all around us.

Then it hit me, totally makes sense. Emotional Fitness will help us increase our emotional intelligence. Our EQ does not focus on academic intelligence, EQ relates with our emotional state. Many people are not in tuned with their emotions and they don’t manage their emotions all that well. From not being comfortable to our most in-depth emotion, people are not well equipped. Personally, I feel that emotional fitness is crucial to maintain. The more I kept reading about emotional fitness the more I realized how true it is, not many people have the tools to deal with their emotions. It’s natural for life to have challenges for us to face every day and obstacles coming at us left and right. We have to work so hard just to get by.

It’s considered being emotional unhealthy to sit down and not do anything. It’s not healthy to complain every day that everything isn’t fair, why me, and just blame the world for everything negative in your life. The never ending why me and it’s not fair is considered a low level of emotional intelligence. Life knocks us down, things happen, we have a range of negative feelings consuming us, and sometimes we don’t understand them. But, that’s part of life. That’s part of being human.

So what are we going to do? Learn to adapt our emotions to any situation that life throws at us. That’s when emotional intelligence is at a high level, accepting the things that are going on around us and being able to navigate through it all to achieve our goals and dreams. Take what you want to do with your lives without having the negative environments, negative situations, and all the negativity that goes on in this world get in the way of our lives. It makes so much sense!

As I kept reading more, I was hooked with what I was learning. In sports, for example the NFL, football players have a sports psychologists and fitness therapists. I never knew that! Fitness therapists do assessments on athletes to ensure no pressures or negative stressors get in the way of their ability to play. Wow, I didn’t realize how many areas of therapy there were. I know there’s physical therapy. I know there’s counseling. Which they both make sense. But exercises therapy relates with the emotional and the mental and making sure it’s not getting in the way of the physical. It gave me a lot to think about. It makes sense.

Without the mind the body can’t function and without the body the mind can’t function. The mind and body connection need to be in tuned in order to be whole. You can’t workout excessively and get ripped but on the inside you feel lost and depressed. It’s important to make sure your mind and body are in synced. Especially for athletes playing sports ranging from basketball, track, football, soccer, and baseball. Athletes have to be able to handle the stress and pressure that comes with sports. It makes sense, wow.

Now people are waking up with what’s going on in America. We have to deal with our busy lives every day, not like in the past where people felt more at ease. Now we have triggers everywhere especially with social media, so many stressful platforms/environments. It’s good for us to develop and maintain our emotional fitness.

For starters, we need to ask ourselves, how are we feeling, what are we doing, how are we with our emotions, and how are we with people. Ask yourself, “Do I have patience? Do I need to increase my tolerance? Why do I get so frustrated so easily? Why is that thing tearing me down?” These are the kinds of questions we need to ask ourselves, and we need to be honest with ourselves. What level are we in regards with emotional fitness? There are people who are highly intelligent academically, but when it comes to their emotions, they aren’t well equipped.

Again, you have to be honest with yourself with what we’re feeling. Some people are born athletes, play sports comes natural to them. Whereas some people have to put in that extra mile to be an amazing athlete. It’s the same with emotional fitness. Some people are born with the ability to handle their emotions better than others. Some people struggle to manage their emotions but eventually develop the tools they need.

What does it mean to be emotionally fit? Confidence in ourselves. Pride in being able to stand out and not needing the approval from others. Navigating life on our own and feeling good about ourselves!

It’s crucial to take part of mindfulness. Be mindful of the present. Don’t worry the past. Don’t worry about the future. Be in the present moment. What can I do right now to make an improvement? That’s what mindfulness is all about; focusing on the now without the worries of the past, the future, and center ourselves.

Also having resilience, as you know sometimes we face things and we fall. It doesn’t matter how many times we fall; what matters is how many times we get back up. Finding the strength to face it all over again. Making mistakes, failures or whatever it may be you can push past it. Even though life gets crazy and we don’t always get what we want. Despite it all, you can go back and try again. That’s what matters.

Make that commitment to yourselves. Believing in ourselves without fear but with faith. Have faith in yourself. Know that you can do it. All the negative feelings and worries means not being healthy and not being emotionally fit. Despite it all, having the resilience to know that sometimes we face challenges, and sometimes we fail but with faith in ourselves we can get there. That’s what matters. To be committed with faith and not with fear because with fear you’re taking steps going back.

Now we’ll wrap up with boundaries and limitations. The ability to say, “No.” The ability to say, “Don’t cross that line. No is no. Respect my wishes.” Also the ability to walk away when they don’t respect your wishes. All that I’ve mentioned in this episode is important to have in order to be emotionally fit. It’s a lifetime worth of work, we can’t manage what goes on in the world but we can manage ourselves and how we react to our environment.

Hello everyone and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

It’s important to love yourself, take care of yourself, and help yourself. But what happens if a person solely focuses on loving themselves, helping themselves, and only take care of myself? What will that turn into? Narcissism.

See this picture? That’s narcissism. The origin of the word came during the Ancient Greek Mythology era. According to mythologists, it all started with the story of, Narcissism, a handsome young man a really like oh my god gorgeous handsome guy. All the people in his town went crazy over him. Which he couldn’t wrap his mind around as to why everyone was so obsessed. Which he didn’t get, since there were no mirrors during his time he didn’t understand what was so special. All the girls would run and chase after him.

Then, one day, Narcissism ran away into the Forbidden Forest. Walking through the forest, he stumbled upon a pond. He looked in the water and fell in love with his reflection, fell in love with himself. That was it, he was infatuated with himself. As you can see in this picture. Mythologists say that comparing the story of Narcissism to the modern day world, not much has changed. Clearly! It’s obvious! As clear as water, being able to see right through it, kind of clear.

Now, fast forward to today, mental health providers, psychologists, scientists, counselors, teachers, and other fields are noticing a trending rate of more people being narcissists. Especially when it comes to social media, as most of you know people invest their entire life to social media and their smartphones. People don’t even notice what’s around them anymore, which raises a lot of concern. Especially with the younger generations, the Millennials and Generation Z glued to their screens because it’s what’s the most important thing to them. Scrolling through their smartphones for hours on end, now narcissism is on the rise at a fast and alarming rate. Social media engineers, claim social media networking sits are to bring people together, supporting each other’s struggles, and celebrating achievements.

The truth of the matter is, that’s not true. Social media engineers’ purpose is to group people individually against one another by the competition. Who has the most likes? Who has the most subscribers? Who has the most retweets? It’s like a competition of who has the most followers and if you don’t have enough it lowers your self-esteem. That’s social media engineers’ goals and it’s working.

Social media is influencing many professions. Such as, yoga. People are feeding their egos with yoga. Well experienced yogis are disturbed by this trend of new age modern school practices and encourages self-promoting. When in actuality, yoga’s purpose is to remove one’s ego. It’s now being twisted to feed one’s ego. The whole, look at me, look at me I can do all these poses. This is causing a growing trend of yoga related injuries.

People are getting hurt because they’re doing it for attention and getting hurt in the process of it all. It’s all about them. To have the world look at them, worship them, and like their selfies. Yogi, Yoga instructors, and yoga enthusiasts’ students tend to be personable and interact with different people. But that’s not the case, it’s all about look what I can do. Look what I can do. As I take a million selfies every day.

Which also applies to the world of fitness. Narcissists are no strangers to it. It’s all about how do I look in this selfie and can you take a picture of me. Staring at the mirror endlessly. Posing and taking mirror pics. It’s becoming difficult for personal trainers who take their job and fitness seriously to be paired with clients who do it for the gram. It’s all about the selfies. Look at me. Look at my muscles. Follow me. Follow for follow. Just like with yoga. Follow me.

Teachers inspire and influence their students to be responsible to get help and benefits from this. Instead people are too concerned with themselves. Look at me and my big biceps.

It’s not just yoga and fitness, even spiritualists. Where their purpose is to deliver the message god’s message, and introducing people to God. Preach and spread God’s truth. Sadly, it’s not anymore. Spiritualists are doing it for the theatrics, attention, and praise.

People are realizing the severity of the narcissism. It raises a lot of concerns. People who have low self-esteem will be desperate to believe whatever is in front of them.

In the world of social media, there are some people who are popular because they always wear the top fashion brands and are always taking selfies of their stylish outfits. But in reality, we don’t know them and we don’t know if it’s theirs. Some people go to stores, try on clothes, and take selfies. They are giving the illusion of a lavish life that they’re not living and fooling their followers all to get more likes and more shares.

Researchers are noticing this growing trend going around. It’s getting serious. Now parents and their relationships with their babies are replaced with smartphones. Parents are staring at their phones with their babies and kids. Children are witnessing their parents dealing with their smartphones and mimic that behavior. I don’t know how I feel about that.

People need to be more careful when it comes to yoga, fitness, and spiritual artists by making sure they’re legit. That they’re doing it for the benefit of others and aren’t in it for themselves and feeding their egos. It’s all about the likes, shares, subscriptions, and retweets feeding the egos and giving people the instant validation that they get from all the likes and comments.

Researchers also noticing that some parents are over praising their children at an alarming rate. Which results in kids expecting and needing that attention, and thus becoming narcissists.

It’s something that we all need to think about. Looking at social media and seeing what it’s doing to us. Keep in mind that once a person is a narcissist they don’t see themselves as a narcissist. They’re incapable of seeing themselves that way. Narcissists can’t see themselves, they only look for the praise but anything negative they can’t see it or don’t want to see it. They’re in denial. They’ll think they’re fine. They’ll think they’re normal. Narcissism is on the rise!

Researchers, psychologists and other mental health professionals bring up the discussion whether this is a danger to society. No but it does impact people’s perspective. Narcissist spread an artificial life. Like, Avatar, an out of this world life. People looked at it with envy, which results in lowering their self-esteem. They have it all, but we don’t. Narcissism also impacts relationships, everything is a lie and an exaggeration. Which is unsettling.

All of what I mentioned going on is something we all need to keep in the back of our minds. Especially parents, having to teach your children that there’s better things to do than being glued to devices and technology.

Thank you for watching my show, I hope you enjoyed it!

What Makes and Breaks Relationships

The Transcript:

(Visual Description of Episode) – Video opens with upbeat music and views of New York City, while Aidan Mack exercises with a jumprope.

The screen shifts to her turning down a road lined with green trees in a red motorcycle, while a red car passes by. Aidan Mack then appears in a fancy closet/fitting room wearing a black dress with black heels, while she spins around looking in the mirror. The screen then shows Aidan Mack sitting in a dressing room at a Hollywood-style vanity mirror, lined in a circle with bright light bulbs where the camera films her reflection in the mirror as she flips her hair and whips out her magenta, pink lipstick applying it to her lips with a grin into the mirror. Aidan Mack is then seen in the center of New York City, standing in the middle of Time Square where the camera circles her as she looks around with an astonished look in her eyes and face at the flashing lights and billboards surrounding her. The host, Aidan Mack then opens her show as she walks down Time Square’s glowing, ruby-red stairs while bystanders sitting behind her on the stairs watch her introduce her show in American Sign Language (ASL).

Episode opens with Aidan Mack wearing a black and beige colored jacket with a silver zipper on the side of it matched with black pants and black loafer slip on flats. Her brown, short hair is worn down and she is wearing dark red lip stick. She is sitting in front of a vintage, finished wood panels that creates a tarnished-bronze and brown looking wood background on a hot pink chair that is formed in the shape of a big hand.  On the wood behind her, displays The Aidan Mack Show logo on Aidan’s right with 3 pictures of pink hearts as trees in pink grass to the side of the logo, each one with different background sky colors.  Below the logo is a small black table against the wall that has a glass vase with pink, red, and white flowers inside of it. In front of the flowers is a picture that says, “You can do anything” with two flowers below it. There is a pink and white striped coffee mug next to the picture that says, “Do what you (shape of a heart).”

 

Hello everyone and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

(insert picture of Aidan dressed in all black gear on her red motorcycle with green trees in the background)

I’m looking forward to the Spring already because I just can’t wait to ride on my motorcycle again and feel that feeling of the wind blowing through my hair. As I’m driving around I see all the flowers blooming, trees and their leaves coming back, and so much green all around. It’s beautiful watching animals run around, seeing love in the air, families together, and cute little fur babies being born into the world. There’s something special in the air during the spring time. It’s the time for romance, people are out and about mingling. There’s some kind of spell or something that makes people fall head over heels for one another.

(insert screen of a sunset and two hands forming a heart with the sunset in the middle and a picture of a couple forming a heart with their arms and hands touching each other on the beach)

Which makes it the perfect time to talk about things that hurt relationships.

(insert picture of Patrick Star from Spongebob with his head resting on his hands and a bunch of pink hearts around him as he has a gaze on his face)

For some people, it’s love at first site. Everything is perfect in the beginning. Nothing’s wrong in the relationship. A perfect match. Both agree on everything and there are no arguments. Its going great and on the right track. That kind of love is the first stage of love. Love is in the air but ..they haven’t really assessed the relationship, because both are high on love.

(insert picture of a while male and female couple arguing using gestures and a picture of two males in a relationship arguing)

Some start to think about the possibilities that could hurt their relationships and how to prevent that from happening.

(insert picture of a black couple arguing using gestures)

(insert a screen of a bunch of words, “how, why, which, where, what” in grey and white colors)

So I did some research and I was intrigued with what I found and I think you’ll be too!

(insert screen of a red heart with a bandaid over it)

So now let’s dive into what can hurt a relationship. Being defensive.

(insert screen that covers the full screen of the show of a white couple arguing using gestures, the female has her hand up to the man and has her head turned away)

People are trying to expressive their feelings but their partners become defensive. Couples feel like their message is not getting across to their partners. That’s one way of hurting a relationship!

(insert a picture of another couple arguing)

Being contempt is another way to hurt a relationship.

(insert black and white photo of a couple arguing and a screen with a bunch of red words on it: “loser, gay, fat, slut, weak, douchebag, bitch, loner, ugly, stupid, and nerd”

It starts with eye rolling, making light of a situation by taunting, laughing, making fun of, or teasing your partner. Falling asleep in the middle of a conversation, throwing things in people’s faces to make them feel crappy, gas lighting, by changing people’s words and thoughts to make them think they’re doing something wrong when they’re not. The list goes on and on of different acts of contempt that people use to make their partner feel powerless.

For instance, name calling. Like, get out you no good! You’re a pig. You’re fat. You’re ugly. All the names in the book, makes us feel terrible about ourselves. That will definitely hurt a relationship.

(insert a picture of a female in bed looking not entertained and bored)

Lack of sex. In the beginning there was so much romance and intimacy but then the fire went out and people don’t click. They feel like something is missing. Now it’s time for some change. Maybe your sex drive has decreased. Maybe you have more of a sex drive than you had before. Who knows?

(insert screen of a word “inflexibility” and another screen that says “expectations/reality”

Not being a flexible partner, unrealistic expectations, and unwillingness to adapt can hurt a relationship.

(insert screen that has two arrows that say “my way or the highway”)

Not communicating your goals to one another and work things out together, instead it’s my way or the highway. People lack willingness to change to make this work. So many limitations and unrealistic expectations that can’t ever be met. Which makes people feel like their failing at their relationships and we end up not feeling good about ourselves. That’s why many relationships crumble to an end.

(insert picture of a figure walking down stairs that are red leading nowhere)

Some feel like they’re lacking in individual growth and having the space they so desperately need.

(insert picture of a girl sitting inside of a circle drawn in chalk that says the word “me”)

They feel like sometimes their partners are invading their space.

(insert picture of man walking alone on the beach)

People need time for themselves. We can’t get to know ourselves better if we have people on our case demanding to always bring them wherever we go. Some feel like they’re missing as an individual, where’s that me time for me to grow as a person. Many feel like they don’t know who they are anymore. Sometimes, couples get so wrapped up in their partners’ life that they forget their own life and lose themselves in their relationship.

(insert a couple sitting in a restaurant ignoring each other on their phones and another cartoon picture of a girl ignoring another girl with her head turning away)

Of course, lack of communication ruins a relationship.

(insert a picture of a man and a woman pulling a rope from each side)

Miscommunication, vague messages, lying, micromanaging, everyday it’s a different story, and defensiveness are all examples of lack of communication. It’s not effective. Couples need to hear each other out and have mutual respect each other. Sometimes even agree to disagree. Try to see each other perspectives. Sadly most people don’t even bother to communicate which results into their partners not feeling good about the relationship.

Having a controlling partner who wants you to always agree with them and only do things that they want to do.

(insert screen of two apples that are both looking at each other, and underneath says, “same”)

You can’t go venture out and do your own thing, you must do what they do at all times. If they can’t go that means you can’t go. Some people get trapped in those kinds of relationships. It’s important to give your partner that time despite you not being able to. Then they can come back and fill you in on how great of a time they had. They’ll actually have news to share as opposed to doing the same old thing.

Which goes back to the loss of sex doing the same thing over and over again. Unwillingness to venture out and try new things. If you want to have a long happy relationship you got to spice things up. Have that conversation of what you’re willing and not willing to try, which will better prepare your relationship for the future to maintain a healthy one.

Since the beginning of time one issue that happens all too often even mental health professionals chime in and the foundation of a healthy relationship it tends to be trust.

(insert picture of 5 blocks that each have a letter on them, T, R, U, S, T)

Only trust can prevent all the ways I’ve mentioned already; the defensive partner, loss of sex, lack of individual growth, no communication, and unrealistic expectations. All of these stem from not having trust.

(insert screen that says, “The Cycle of Trust,” and has a circle around it with terms, “need to control,” “unilateral decisions,” “feelings of impotence,” “sense of alienation,” “Us vs. Them,” and “mistrust” in a circle)

When theres no trust in the relationship you can expect these negative behaviors to intrude and ruin the relationship.

(insert picture of a beach with sandals on the sand and the terms “the foundation of a relationship is trust”)

Having that trust you’re always reassured that no matter what comes up that you both get through it together. This helps commitments last longer and there’s less suspicion, less fighting and more of the good stuff. Trust is key and foundation for a healthy relationship.

(insert picture of two stick figures reaching for each other while one is falling with the words, “Are you building trust or mistrust?”)

Once you notice anything negative coming up in the relationship it always comes back to having no trust. The second you have those feelings talk about them. Those discussions are crucial for having a healthy relationship. Two-way communication, despite not agreeing or being able to see the it their way. Despite it all you still deserve to be respected.

(insert yellow screen that says “validation” with a blue box and a check in side of it)

Listen to each other and validate each other’s feelings. You may not understand what they’re feeling but validate that feeling anyway. Relationships take a lot of hard work; successes, goals, stress, pain, disappointments, anger, and being comfortable with each other.

(insert picture of two stick figures that are both in the shape of puzzle pieces the blue one says, “partner” and the red one says, “ship”)

Be equals, always be fair, trust each other, and your relationship will last.

You know monogamy is not easy. It’s hard to do, there’s a lot of temptation out there. There are a lot of choices. There’s a lot of apps, technology makes it so easy to access our temptations. But it’s not natural like going into your car and going to work isn’t natural. But still we get into our cars and go to work. It’s the same with commitments and relationships, if you really want this person, you want it to work, you’ll find a way make that commitment last. Monogamy is possible. But make sure you think twice because it can be challenging it’s something to discuss. Remember anything negative that comes in the way that drains us emotionally it always comes down to not having that trust.

(insert screen of a grey piece of paper that says “trust” and is ripped in half)

I hope this helps you all look and understand relationships better and also keep an eye out for red flags.

(insert screen of a red flag that says, “RED FLAG WARNING” on it in white letters)

Sometimes we fall so hard and so fast but we have to pay attention to make sure we aren’t impacted negatively and allow things to creep into the relationship which causes you to be stuck in a bad one. To prevent that, avoid it.

One more thing about avoiding, people who tend to avoid conflicts and doesn’t talk about them is a bad sign for the relationship. It’s important to get through the conflicts and have those discussions and hear each other out. Like the famous Robert Frost once said, “The best way out is always through.” I second that!

Hey everyone and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

I hope you all have some extra energy today because today I’ll be talking about fitness! For this episode I decided to do something a little different, you’ll see coming up next…

(insert blue screen with a family running somewhere together, a white cartoon dad, a black mother, a white young boy follows them and a small black infant crawls along on the ground)

I’ll start with, what is physical activity?

Physical activity is any movement of the body which requires using energy. Physical activity and exercise can really help improve your health/strength and reduce the risk of getting/contracting diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Physical activity can have immediate and long lasting health benefits.

(insert blue screen with a white male and female running next to each other, on the right of them is written “Health Benefits of Cardio Exercise” in white letters)

Which leads me to, what is cardio exercise?

(insert black screen with a big red heart on it and a white rhythm strip showing the heartbeat line going through the heart shape)

(insert another screen of a hand holding a paper that is on fire burning which says, “calories” and a picture right after of a body X-ray image showing the veins in red all over the body that lead to the heart)

Cardio is a big help in getting your heart rate up, burning calories, and helps increase blood circulation throughout the body.

Cardio equipment when you go to a fitness center can be confusing, right? That’s why I decided to do something a little different for this episode…I’m going to take you all on a trip to my fitness center and see what I’ll be talking about there!! Come on everyone!!

(insert Aidan Mack in a gym room filled with elliptical machines. She is on the third machine in a row of five and she is wearing a black tank top, leggings with grey and white stripes, and pink and black NewBalance sneakers. Her hair is worn up and pulled into a bun)

 (Aidan is signing while using the elliptical)

Fifth on my list today is the elliptical.

This doesn’t have the best grade; it’s rated as a D+ according fitness experts. For many reasons. One being, it’s not a natural movement for the body. It’s awkward and unnatural for the arms. Two, it doesn’t have much weight bearing there’s no room to improve on muscle strength to support your bones, none at all. There’s also a lack of dynamics, meaning no option for any type of incline which provides little to no opportunities with building stamina. It’s easy performance and doesn’t provide a challenge. A heads up for you, this doesn’t build any type of resilience it’s the same as siting down and watching tv. Let’s check out what’s number 4 on my list.

(Aidan grabs handles of elliptical machine and hops off to her right walking to the next machine, the screen shifts)

(Aidan appears on the arc trainer, there are only 2 and they are positioned right next to the elliptical machines)

(Aidan explains the machine while moving her legs and exercising at the same time)

The arc trainer is better than the elliptical. It burns 60% more calories than using an elliptical.

This isn’t the best thing to use to build strong bone density. Arc Trainers really focus on our lower body. Just the lower parts like your hamstrings, quads, and glutes. Keep in mind arc trainers are not the best for building muscle mass. You guys ready for number 3 on my list?

(Aidan slows down on machine, hops back and off smoothly and walks to the next machine)

(Aidan appears in a room with 2 rowing machines. She shows how to use the machine by pulling the heavy cord towards her 5 times while using her legs to push back)

Third on my list, the rowing machine. Rowing machines are the best for a full body workout, from your shoulders down to your calves. It’s a great way to improve your coordination and increase power speed. Rowing machines are gentle on the joints. It’s key to have the right form and you’ll make your entire body work to it’s full potential! For abs, don’t do it like this…

(shows what not to do by pulling the cord upwards)

do it like this…

(shows the right way to use the rowing machine by pulling towards the core and abs)

It’s all about the right form. Let’s go and see what’s number 2 on my list!

(Aidan hops off of the machine to her right and walks into the next room)

(Aidan appears in a room full of Stair Master machines, treadmills, and other running equipment in the background, she is climbing the stair mill)

Second on my list, stair mills. This is a beast for cardiovascular workouts. So good for the heart! Stair mills are also the best for our lower body; quads, hamstrings, calves, and gluteal muscle. It’s a lot of work but totally worth it, and it’s great for strengthening your core and your balance.

(Aidan grabs the bars on the side showing what not to do)

Keep in mind, you can’t hold these, these are only here for support if you lose your balance. But this must be done without holding on.

(Aidan lifts her arms and moves them back and forth in a jogging position showing the correct way to use the machine)

Perfect. If you hold onto these, (Aidan grabs bars on the side again)

you won’t get the results! So, I highly suggest you do it without holding on. What’s also awesome is you can turn around and focus on each side, like this;

(Aidan turns to one side facing the camera and uses one leg to alternate back and forth switching legs while lifting the other leg up while the stairs keep moving. Then she turns around with her back to the camera to show she can do both sides)

 

which is called lateral exercise. Again, the bars are to help you if you lose balance and preventing you from falling. But if you chose to hold on for your own comfort you won’t get you anywhere. Just saying! Next is number 1, you’ll see!

(Aidan uses the last stair in the machine to glide her way down and step off of the machine smoothly, screen shows her walking into another room)

(Aidan appears on a treadmill in a room with more than 5 of them lined up side by side. She is walking at a fast pace while signing)

Now you see, this is number one for a reason, the treadmill, it beats all of the cardio exercise equipment I mentioned today. It’s great for improving your energy expenditure, stamina, and overall endurance. Burns so much calories. Activates your muscles. It’s kinetic which means you’re copying outdoor walking, and running. This is the best out there and it’s so easy to do, the most novice person to the most advanced fitness enthusiast. There is so much versatility with the treadmill, inclincation, speed, and so much more. This is perfect for having a natural range of motion, as you walk and as you run. It has a great back pedal. There’s so much you can do. It helps pump blood to the heart. The list is endless with what you can do with treadmills. Over the years there’s been extensive research out there proving treadmills are number one and nothing else can beat them.

It’s important for you all to be aware of all the equipment I mentioned today. It’s good to alternate the equipment you use in the gym. Sometimes you work out hard one day and take it easy the following day. Hit the elliptical if you have bad knees. Arc trainers when you want to focus on your lower body. Use your common sense, when alternating machines to let one part of your body rest while you work out another part of the body. Do this and your workouts will be ran smoothly.

Now let’s get back to the studio!

(Screen shifts to Aidan back in the studio looking the same as when she opened the show with the video of the gym which fades away in the corner of the wall behind her)

Wow I learned a lot from her. Oh wait, that was me. Ahahah. Bad joke, I know!

Anyway, I hope you all learned something new today about ellipticals, arc trainers, rowing machines, stair mills, and treadmills.

(insert screen of a picture of an elliptical machine)

I want to be clear that ellipticals are good for people with bad knees because it’s gentle on the knees.

(insert a picture of a person bending down to grab their knee, the picture has an X-ray effect that shows orange around the knee showing inflammation or pain)

Make sure you keep a straight posture on the elliptical, don’t slouch! When it comes to your feet, put your weight on the heel and not your toes! Keep your feet flat, and not wobbly. Focus on your workout, and don’t get distracted by the TV, books, and other distractions. Don’t forget to move your arms and set the resistance 10 or higher,

(insert screen of a picture of a cardio machine’s display screen showing digital numbers and two up and down arrows on the left that say “incline” and two up and down arrows on the right of the numbers that say, “Resistance” which is circled in red and a red arrow is pointed to the word, “resistance”)

if it’s under a 10 it’s considered as you sitting down watching TV.

(insert screen of a picture of Humpty Dumpty sitting on a couch watching TV)

Make sure it’s at 10 or higher, alternate between arms and legs on the elliptical.

(insert screen of a picture showing a person using an elliptical with their left heel down and the word “left” next to it and their right arm pulling down with the word “right” next to it)

(insert picture of an X-ray image of injured hips that show the inflamed areas in red)

As a disclaimer, ellipticals are not good for the hips on a daily basis. I suggest you all to not be hung up on one machine all the time it’s better to play with all the equipment. “Be a slut with your cardio equipment!” Switch it up as much as you can, so your muscles don’t get use to the same old routine and won’t make any impact that you want. But if you alternate equipment it’ll impact your muscles.

I hope you enjoyed this show and learned something new!

Thanks for watching my show!

Hey everyone and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

Many of you out there ask me what the appropriate age level is to watch my show. Its intended for viewers ages 18 and older! Personally, I don’t believe in categorizing content by age groups. I love the diverse age range of my viewers and we can learn from each other. I want to make that clear. My show is intended for viewers 18 and older, if you’re under 18, it’s up to your parents’ discretion, so ask them if it’s okay to watch my show, and then feel free! Again, this show is intended for viewers 18 and older!

(Insert picture of a screen that reads, “Your sexual health matters,” in turquoise and pink)

Anyway, I’m excited to talk about something that really matters. Health. This discussion is long overdue, and there’s not a lot of research on women’s health, specifically sex health. Now our life spans are longer than ever, and even after menopause our lives still continue right? Which means that doctors, scientists, and other medical professionals have to research diligently to be up to date on current research findings, which allows them to better understand our bodies. The information we have now is still fairly new and what experts eh…

So…I…

Maybe I need practice signing with one hand and drinking with the other. That’s interesting. Maybe I should practice more, so I can continue signing and not have to stop while I drink.

(Insert picture of a screen that has a cartoon of a woman holding up her index finger and a red bubble to her right that reads, “Women are trained to refrain from talking about sex”)

People are realizing that our sex health is important to analyze.

(Insert picture of three bubbles overlapping each other one is pink, one is blue and the front one is purple and reads, “ Sex, worth talking about”)

As we get older, conditions, and issue surface and become health situations.

(Insert various pictures on the screen one is a picture of a half of a face that is smooth and free of wrinkles and the other half of the face has wrinkles, the following picture is a health practitioner holding a red heart shape and underneath in yellow it says, “Health Issues”)

As these situations surface it prevents us from having a healthy sex life.

(Insert picture of a happy couple touching noses with each other, a white blonde woman and a white male with brownish-grey hair)

Also women are hesitant to bring up their concerns to their partners, and feel like they’re just complaining.

(Insert picture of a woman who appears to be arguing with her male partner. She has brown curly hair and is turned with her back to her partner while he holds up his hand and looks like he is making an argument)

Some women feel uncomfortable, and their husbands dismiss those feelings, concerns, and issues, resulting in women feeling left in the dark.

(Insert another picture of a couple and a white woman with brown short hair is sitting resting her head on her hand looking disappointed, while a white man sits behind her)

(Insert a picture of a female looking into the distance)

(Insert a picture of Dr. Lauren Streicher smiling)

Now, this woman, Dr. Lauren Streicher, OBGYN, She’s been providing care for over 25 years to thousands of patients. Through her interactions and observations of the women she’s worked with over time, she realized there’s not much information on something that desperately needed to be researched like menopause and women’s sex health. Her research consisted of surveys and interviews of various people out there, specifically women of course.

One of her findings that I thought was interesting was that 80% of women who’ve experienced a heart attack tend to not have engage in sex because they’re afraid it will end up killing them.

(Insert picture of a woman in a blazer and her hand is on the area of her heart, which is marked red, showing that she may have heart problems)

Those uncertain and uneasy feelings aren’t because of their health, it’s because they haven’t brought it up to their health care providers. They rather keep things under wraps, because they’re uncomfortable and afraid.

(Insert picture of a red screen with many cells and the word “cancer” in white that is shown by two cells destroying each other)

90% of women who have or have had cancer can’t get back into their sex lives, because they experience vaginal dryness and sometimes sudden menopause, which results in decreasing sexual activity. Again, these concerns are kept a secret and are not discussed with doctors. Women remain silent. So it’s necessary to have these discussions and express your concerns to your doctors. Let them know that before you were sexually active and now you’re uncomfortable to engage sexually. Ask them what should you do about it. It’s crucial to open this dialogue up with your doctor. Women don’t communicate their concerns, so how can they get medical assistance?

Also many people with diabetes experience genital nerve damaging, both in the penis and the vagina.

(Insert picture of a screen with various colorful fruits on it and someone holding up a tool to track their diabetes)

Sometimes they experience issues with having orgasms and the damage can be irreversible; they can’t feel sensation anymore. Endocrinologists have discussed that these conversations don’t get brought up and they’re unaware of what their patients are going through in regards to these various issues.

Also other conditions like fatigue and stress impact our sex lives.

(Insert picture of a screen with a black woman holding her hands out while appearing to be stressed out by many factors that surround her such as a clock, money, a house, a weight, medicine, etc.)

(Insert picture of a boy and a girl with what appears to be their mother in between. The mother is holding the girl and there are books floating around them, a basketball, a clock, etc.)

People are realizing this is something to further investigate in the hopes of being able to understand and provide better quality services for women.

(Insert a screen of a female cartoon yelling into a loud speaker, “Women’s Health Matters!”)

It’s also important that the things I’ve mentioned today start while we’re young, taking better care of ourselves for our futures so it doesn’t catch up to us later. It’s better to be proactive now and prepared!

(Insert screen with a picture of a woman holding her temples on both sides of her head with the words, “Menopause & Sex: How Menopause Affects Sexuality”)

Like, for example, today there’s more research on menopause. Women’s bodies go through many changes which affects our bone health, impacts sex health, mental health, our hearts, and several other parts of the body can be impacted as well.

(Insert screen of a picture for a woman standing with different arrows pointed to her body, the top of the picture reads, “The Most Common Menopause Symptoms” and the arrows point to her head, “Mood Swings,” her chest, “Hot Flashes and Night Sweats,” and her uterus area, “Irregular periods, Loss of Libido, and Vaginal Dryness.”)

Now more doctors are studying these changes and impacts to be able to accommodate patients better by being able to prevent and manage their symptoms more successfully each day. As we all know, we can’t stop the aging process but it doesn’t have to be bad! It can become manageable; our life expectation is longer than it’s ever been before and because of this doctors and scientists are shocked, as they continue to be updated with current findings.

(Insert screen of a picture of a white female lying next to a white male in bed with her back turned to him and the words, “Menopause and sex”)

Dr. Streicher thought about what was missing in current research and realized it’s women’s sex health and menopause. So, she decided to set up a clinic in Chicago, Illinois.

(Insert screen of a picture of a woman sitting with a female medical practitioner with medicine in the background)

She founded North West Feinberg School of Medicine.

(Insert picture of North West Feinberg School of Medicine)

(Insert picture of a screen that says “Sexual Health”)

(Insert a picture of a pink screen with the word, “Menopause” where the letter “U” is the two-lined symbol for pause and the pause symbol is a stick figure girl’s legs)

She founded the school to specifically tackle women’s sex health and menopause, with the goal to give women their satisfaction back.

(Insert picture of a elderly white couple laying in bed, man holding the woman with a red rose on top of her and surrounded by roses in the background)

Ensuring that women have a better quality of their sex lives for longer. Most women think that there’s no solution, it’s all over and there’s not much that can be done. Noo, that’s not the case, there’s a solution as long as you look for one. There are solutions out there that can help things move along. Husbands and wives can continue their sex lives again.

Again, it’s important to communicate with your doctor and have these conversations. Realize this is our health, you know, sometimes fear stops us from enjoying sex. So it’s crucial if any of you notice any changes or any discomforts, bring it up with your doctor and if you don’t feel comfortable with your doctor, change your doctor. As we get older we need a doctor by our side that makes us comfortable and make sure our health is still in the groove of things.

I hope this episode helps you understand and realize there’s always a way for improvement if you look for one.

I wish you all the best of health!

Thank you Casey and Domenick for interpreting!

Hey everyone and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

I want to make this clear, my show is for both Deaf and non-Deaf people. Signers and non-signers. My show will benefit you the non-Deaf people watching this who don’t know sign. You’ll learn a lot and you’ll know what to do next time you meet Deaf people for the first time. So you can give a positive experience to Deaf people professionally, personally, and socially. It really varies in the number of fields you may encounter a Deaf person and you’ll know what to do because of this episode! This will be great exposure for you all!

So please, don’t assume when watching my show, “Oh she’s signing so that means this is only for Deaf people only.” Nope, this show is for both Deaf and non-Deaf people, that’s why my show has voice over. Got it?

Which leads me to talk about interpreter compliments…

(insert a picture of a conference, a meeting, a workshop, and a picture of an interpreter signing next to a presenter)

As you can see these different images showing conferences, meetings, workshops, shows, places where people gather and you see an interpreter standing in the front.

(insert a picture of two erasers placed on concrete standing next to a mushroom plant growing in between the two pieces of concrete, one is pink and one eraser is orange and both have a face drawn on them. Across from them is a blue eraser looking at them)

You might be inspired and go up to them and tell them, “Wow you’re here to get up and interpret. Wow you’re a savior. You’re helping the Deaf community. Wow you’re so good. Where did you learn sign language? Where can I learn sign language?”

(insert picture of 5 business men sitting in a row of chairs separated by one empty chair and a woman sitting on the last chair. All of the men are having a conversation and are all looking at the second man in awe while the woman seems to be looking over at them alone”)

And the many other questions you might want to ask when you see an interpreter.

But be careful. Imagine if you want to attend a meeting, conference, workshop, or a show you can literally look at your schedule and say, “Oh I can go to this conference. I can go to this workshop. I can go to this meeting.” Really, any last minute thing you want to attend you can. But you need to think twice about Deaf people.

(insert a white screen that reads “#HearingPrivilege” in black letters)

We don’t have that privilege like you guys do. Which means, if a Deaf person has to go to a meeting but doesn’t have an interpreter available, we’re told it’s our responsibility to book them in advanced. By the time I get one, the meeting is already over. Or there’s an expo that has tons of information about health and fitness Deaf people are ready to go and have fun but we can’t, we have to reserve an interpreter in advance. Oh great! There’s a fashion show and I called to see if a few of us could attend the show but no we couldn’t because we had to book an interpreter ahead of time.

Now we have to wait for it to come back again next year. That’s what Deaf people have to experience on a day to day basis. We constantly have to map out our lives ahead of time if we want to attend conferences, meetings, workshops, shows or whatever the event is. We have to plan it out ahead of time. And by planning it, it means we’re contacting coordinators letting them know we’re Deaf and we need an interpreter. Sometimes it is a battle because entities don’t want to pay for it. They think, “Deaf people aren’t our target audience. Our target audience are hearing people. Hearing people are fine but Deaf people are shoved aside because they don’t “have the budget for it.”

We have to go back and forth with people and remind them of the ADA law and they’re required to provide interpreters to ensure Deaf people have access to information. That’s when they start to realize, once they know they’re required by law. Then these coordinators have to reach out with different interpreting agencies, and sometimes agencies are not really doing it for Deaf people, they’re doing it for the money.

(insert picture of a business man and a business woman talking to a woman)

So a lot of the times they don’t care and they just send a warm body.

Imagine being frustrated at an all weekend conference because of an unqualified interpreter. The interpreters don’t understand the content of the conference, they don’t sign well, and they don’t understand sign language. When they’re interpreting into English they sound like they’re speaking broken English instead of interpreting accurately. Which results in us Deaf people looking bad, interpreters are what we use to make an impression to hearing people and sometimes they make us look bad. It’s something that we have to face from time to time. We try to make the best out of it and try to keep things moving along.

(insert picture of a bunch of blue stick figures holding hands in a circle while one orange stick figure stands outside the circle with it’s arms open and alone)

Sometimes people don’t even realize we’re quiet the entire time because of this. They don’t realize we’re stuck with an unqualified interpreter. Also, how do we even express that to them? That wouldn’t run smoothly. It may come off as sounding stupid or not important and then we lose an opportunity.

(insert blue screen that reads, “Media & Event, Accessibility for Deaf & HOH People” in white letters)

I want you all to think twice when you want to run towards an interpreter when you see one. You need to remember, we Deaf people are just like you non-Deaf people out there.

(insert picture of a group of people networking and smiling while meeting one another)

We want to seize potential opportunities.

(insert art of a small guy holding a balloon that says “idea” and a large money bag that has an, “$” on it next to him and is the same size as him being held by a person’s hand)

To meet potential sponsors, investors, business partners,

(insert picture of a bunch of business people smiling in a line)

or developing business relationships with different people and expanding our networks.

(insert screen that covers the whole screen which is a picture of a bunch of people all putting their hands in the center and on top of one another to show they are a team)

I work hard to be who I am. I want to show who I am to people.

(insert white screen that reads “Access to your success” with a box and pens and books coming out of it)

(insert another screen that is blue and reads in 3 white strips with black letters, “Check” “your” “privilege” )

So when a non-Deaf person runs up and talks to the interpreter, that robs my time. You’re taking away my opportunity to network. You could’ve asked me those questions and start a conversation. Like, wow this is awesome that we have an interpreter. We can form a relationship because you’re here for business and I’m here for business too. We could’ve formed a relationship but instead you ignored us and ran to the interpreter. The interpreter is there for a different purpose than we are, the interpreter is here to facilitate communication between Deaf people and non-Deaf people, thats it.

That’s their goal for attending, to make sure effective communication is taking place. And really, you’re gaining nothing talking to an interpreter who is not even there for what you’re there for. It’s a loss for me when you non-Deaf people run up and have a full blown conversation with the interpreter. It’s offensive. It’s not respectful by any means. You know, Deaf people are the best people to ask all those burning questions that you want to ask about ASL classes and interpreters. We can give you the full scoop, and you can learn a lot from us Deaf people. We have brains for you to pick! I notice you non-Deaf people running to have a full blown conversation with the interpreter. You don’t realize you’re taking time away from me having opportunities to recruit potential team players for my team. By talking to the interpreter, you’re robbing potential exposure, information, exchange of resources, advice, and the many other things that you non-Deaf people get when you go to these events. But here you all are running to have a one-on-one conversation with the interpreter, you forgot about me. It’s really disrespectful and then sometimes I have to chime in and introduce myself. Which for whatever reason throws hearing people off and makes them feel awkward. Then time pasts and things work out smoothly.

I want this episode to be shared to spread awareness. I want you to keep in this in mind, you have hearing privilege. Which means you have access to pretty much any and everything out there. You can literally roll out of bed and know you have access to everything. Im asking “Will we have access? Will there be captions? Will we have an interpreter? Will we have? Will we have?”We have to ask these questions to make sure we have access to information, communication, captions, and the list just goes on of the daily concerns we have.

So again please, be aware of your hearing privilege.

Thank you I appreciate your time!

I hope you benefit from this episode and learned something new! Have a great day everyone!

Thank you for watching my show!

Thanks Domenick and Casey for interpreting!
