You Shouldn't Take Out Joss's Hearing Aid

You shouldn't take out Joss's hearing aid.


You can take it out when she's having quiet time, or when she's sleeping, or when she's surfing.


You shouldn't, however, take out Joss's hearing aid because it is clashing with clothing.


You shouldn't take out Joss's hearing aid because you think it's weird.


You shouldn't take out Joss's hearing aid because you don't like it.


You shouldn't take out Joss's hearing aid because you're afraid of losing it, yet you have dolls with earrings that don't come with a carrying case and extra pair.


You shouldn't pretend Joss's hearing aid is something else.


You shouldn't erase Joss's disability.


You shouldn't take out Joss's hearing aid because you want a 'so called Normal Joss'. Because for Joss, this is her normal. A hearing aid is her normal. And a hearing aid, for many children, is their normal as well. Joss is a reflection of themselves, a mirror into their lives that is rarely seen in media. And if you can't respect that, you shouldn't buy Joss. And you should reality-check yourself, because there are more disabled children than children who have blue eyes. And you shouldn't visit this blog anymore, because I'm one of those disabled children.

I agree with you. The only reason I would take it out would be if I was making a stopmotion and she was playing someone else

To be fair, taking out the hearing aid to not lose it is not equivalent to erasing Joss's disability necessarily. It's better to lose earrings than a hearing aid which is such a unique piece compared to any other American Girl items. If you lost the item, then you lose an intricate part of Joss's characteristic. Other than that, I completely understand how you feel.

@CraftySquirrel Some of the mean comments intermixed between your comments I don’t think were directed at you. The ones that didn’t have an @ may have just been comments on the post in general, not comments directed at you.

But, regardless, they weren’t the nicest comments.

@EVERYONE Just make sure you think before you post. Your comments might come off as mean even when you don’t mean them to be. It’s okay to be passionate, just think about how they will sound to other users and to Sydney. We want to keep the AGDN community a kind and happy place.

@Minnie I wanted Truly Me 83 and 84 for Christmas. But, my parents actually ordered them during the 4x the points thing and went ahead and gave them to me. So, I got them as an early Christmas present 😁
