Oppression is no excuse for vengeance — for murder. I wonder… does the death of innocent people — cut down on the streets as they flee — free you? I think not. ~ Professor X from page of X-Men.
Professor X has a strong vision of seeing mutants and humanity living together in peace.
Magento saw humanity as great oppression upon mutants, so therefore humanity needs serious treatment.
Believe it or not, Professor X and Magento were once close friends until their view of human-mutant relations became incompatible which was the beginning of rivalry between them.
Professor X found X-Mansion, Xavier Institute for Higher Learning (it used to be Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. It was the true intention to nourish the new mutants who are feeling being “outcast” in the world. It is where the X-Men began!
Magneto went on his own path and found the Brotherhood of Mutants, originally known as the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
Both of them share the same passion: their great love for mutants and ensure they are in their safe environment setting.
For years, I learn to appreciate the X-Men universe. Somehow I was reading one of the major storylines told by Marvel Comics called “House of M” and in issue number five of House of M, where Wolverine became victim of an altered timeline as it was caused by Scarlet Witch, daughter of Magneto. It’ where mutants are governing the world. So, I wanted you to take look at this one below:
I lived in a world where mutants were minorities, and the X-Men worked to build a peaceful coexistence between the growing mutant population and regular people… who never seem to run out of reasons to be terrified of us.
Did it ring you as being a Deaf person (Note to hearing people it applies to you too, because you might have something else than being Deaf person)?
Often of us experienced being oppressed in two different ways, true intention and non-intention. Being oppressed in non-intention is due to being ignorance and lack of being educated about an individual who is living as a Deaf person. For true intention, they knew it and cannot trust a Deaf person to do anything except able to hear!
How do you feel when you are being oppressed?
Wanted to seek legal action against them?
They are REALLY IGNORANCE!
They cannot understand that I cannot read lips!
List going on, I can relate to you, smile!
Should I take up the personality of Magento? He has a depth of sense of hatred for humanity for mistreating mutants.
Magneto echoes “Deaf” militants! He doesn’t want to do anything with humanity! So are you seeing majority as a threat to your community because of their oppression?!
Should I say it’s better to take up the personality of Professor X since he believe in peacemaking between mutants and humanity! Professor X will do anything to educate those who are truly ignorant about the importance of understanding that mutant are normal as human. Also Professor X wanted to encourage those mutants to use their power wisely in helping those people.
So do you want to be in Professor X or Magento’s camp?
It’s your choice!
Remember your attitude matters!
I prefer to be in Professor X’s camp! Before you say anything about who I am! I’m so proud of who I am! I’m thankful God created me to be Deaf person and see Deaf culture and its language: American Sign Language as part of my identity. I used to have bitterness against those who oppressed and discriminated upon me in the past. More I learned as I get older that I realized people who don’t understand Deaf are simply lacking the education about Deaf communities.
Let your identity be in Christ and Christ is the King of Peace.
Carrying the attitude of militant will cause to develop the division within Deaf communities where there is no peace within.
You are forgetting about one thing if you are occupied with militant attitude, they are WATCHING you!
Of course, all of us have different goals, visions and perspective. Remember, you cannot paint someone to be someone else. God sees an individual with its own unique personality! God doesn’t see Deaf as Broken person, God sees it as normal and beautiful in His own eyes. So therefore God wanted all of hearing people to understand and learn about the uniqueness of Deaf communities. Same as for us as Deaf people learn about uniqueness what differing from us!
So therefore God created us and we are His beautiful children whom believe in Him through Jesus our Lord.
Don’t let oppression and discrimination destroy who you have instead educated those who need to see us as not broken people!
Apostle Paul wrote letter to communities of Galatia:
“There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you.” -Galatians 3:28-29 (NLT)
We are all one in Christ. None of us are outcast in eyes of God.
