I have had a little bit of a lisp for my entire life. A lisp is when someone attempts to create the “s” sound and a “th” comes out instead. My lisp is caused by crooked teeth on my bottom row right where my tongue meets the teeth when making the “s” sound, letting a little air through. Now this should be a very insignificant thing, but because we humans are such social creatures, a little inconsistency with speaking can cause a lot of damage to a person’s life. Especially since lisps are considered to be a trait exclusive to homosexuals. In this article I will discuss some of the frustrations involved with having a lisp.
