I guess that's due to being oralism for 32 years (so far) and no social life.
ASL should never be a sign of not intelligent enough to go to a good school. In fact, it should be available for advanced students (they should have a terp that will interpret for them in advance schools). And being oralism should NEVER be the only way to get better education. Oralism should only work like foreign language if deaf choose to communicate people that way.
Good thing about standards is that there are so many of them to choose from.
