STORY TIME KIDS. Lucas Grabeel who played Ryan Evans was 100% for making Ryan canonically gay, and spoke to Kenny Ortega at length to get Ryan to at least hold hands with a male student in the final scene. Grabeel is straight but thought it was so important for Disney viewers to see gay characters on TV, knowing that the HSM3 viewership was age 11+, when kids may start thinking about who they’re attracted to a bit more. basically Disney gave Lucas a flat out no and as a response wrote in Ryan’s relationship with Kelsi last minute (as speculation was already flying around about Kelsi being a lesbian). so even though disney screwed them over ortega told grabeel that he could do whatever he liked in the blooper reel and they’d include it in the DVD. hence above.

I reblog this every time its on my dashboard and I’m not even approaching embarrassed.

I look at you, and I’m home. There is no one else in this world that I feel both comfortable and nervous around, but still feel good about myself. Everyone is either one or the other, and I don’t let people see me the way you do.
I probably love you too much (c.b)

Video is a teacher talking to a classroom of deaf students.

Teacher: I want to talk about language today. When a child is born, what is the first thing the parents hear in the hospital?

Student: “Your child failed the hearing test.”

Teacher: Right. A baby is five hours old and he’s failed something already? What about the term “hearing loss”? What does that word evoke?

Student: Hearing is the norm. Deaf is less than. Lacking.

Teacher: Are we “less than”? Do you believe being deaf has taken away or added to your life? If someone invented a pill you could take it tonight and you would wake up hearing how many of you would take it? *looks around the room* None of you. Why not?

Student: Because being deaf gives you friends anywhere you go.

Teacher: Community.

Student: And a way of seeing the world that’s different from anyone else.

Teacher: Perspective.

Student: Hearing kids don’t know who they are. We do. We’re deaf: first, last, always.

Teacher: Identity.

Student: Hearing people think they have more than us…their lives are better. We have it so “hard.” But I’d never give up being deaf to be like anyone else. Never.

Teacher: Not hearing loss. Deaf gain.

Note: Please keep this transcript when you reblog this so that blind people (blind people use screen readers) are able to know what the video was talking about.
