MSNBC – Parents: School asked to change deaf son’s name sign
Hunter Spanjer’s parents say officials at his Nebraska school asked them to change the sign for Hunter’s name, saying it looked too “gun-like,” but the school is denying they ever made the request.
You know what, you just can’t win. If being deaf wasn’t enough, some jackass at a local Nebraska school has the urge to stand up and actually suggest something like this. I can’t imagine bringing up a deaf child. I have smoked weed with deaf people before, but I would say in no way does that prepare me for raising a deaf child. The guy did teach me to spell blunt in sign language and I still remember it to this day over 10 years later.
Hey Nebraska, here’s your sign.
