Re: “Loopholes in ADA Law Make "No Pets" Clauses Nearly Impossible to Enforce

however, please be very careful and mindful that not all disability can be ovious to such great minds as yours. Example, those of us who are DEAF/Hard of Hearing, one may think they can tell the difference between a DEAF and not DEAF person how? I would challeng you anyday that you may not always know. I know, I am DEAF but, to the average person, one may believe that all DEAF people cannot hear or communicate. This cannot be further from the truth, DEAF means (lost of hearing) and does not state the actual hearing loss of the person. And in addition, a DEAF person can still hear some, but, not necessary understand what by clarity of speech, may not know where the soiund is coming from, all theses facots play a big part to us DEAF. So the next time you think that a service dog or person does not look like what you think should, do not speculate just ask us service animals people and we will be happy to talk to you about our service animals as long as one appropaches respectfully without prejudment. I know I always like to talk to people about being DEAF and my ability to have my service dog help me. So many times I had to pove that I was DEAF because I was told "you do not look DEAF, you do not act DEAF, you do not sound DEAF" please tell me what this means, because I thought I look just human. All and all, not all of us service animals holders act or have he same need. Thanks for this opportunity to try and explain smile.
