  • Separate is Not Equal | Deaf Performers Were Not Included At The Halftime Show

    Separate is Not Equal | Deaf Performers Were Not Included At The Halftime Show

    Same thing I’ve been complaining about for 15 years! To quote deaf blogger Amanda Tuite: …the entire programming of the Super Bowl left a bad taste in my mouth. As a deaf person, I always anticipated seeing the national anthem and “America the Beautiful” performed by professional deaf entertainers who use American Sign Language. This […]

  • A professional cuddler’s shift from “I would never…” to “I might if…”

    A professional cuddler’s shift from “I would never…” to “I might if…”

    Paul & Tina’s Signalong: Haters gonna hate

    I am not as offended or concerned about Paul & Tina’s Signalong as some people are. I think exposure to ASL can be a good thing, regardless of who’s signing. If Deaf signers want to be offended by Paul & Tina, and educate them about their language and culture, that is their job. It’s not ASL/English interpreters’ job to be offended for Deaf people.
