    In a way I feel this is a plus for the deaf community that this girl was able to express her feelings and win over the case.

    But... This is probably where the hearing world tends to develop their bad tastes for the deaf/hoh. It's cases like these that sometimes make us look arrogant, and then the public develops stereotypes.

    Well, they're the ones who were truly arrogant because they embarrassed her.
