Who said that I made that video? I know someone
I would have to agree with you on people having different learning pace but would you think that they will make more effort to improve themselves instead of being content with their current level?
I wonder if you made this youtube? if so, wonder if you can post each of words what youtube says here. some of us are totally blind or legally blind or some blind here.
It seems the maker of the video has contempt for deaf and will probably have a divorce in future.
I thought it was a good opinion until the smart-aleck comment at the end of the video in regards to the sound file of people having sex and that we can't hear it.
Made me lose total respect for the said opinion.
If one wants to present a respectable opinion, they should without the expense of making fun of the Deaf community.
I think so too.
But the fact that you are taking your time to make sure people (including people OUTSIDE Deaf community) understand your grammar is admirable. You don't need flowery or big words to make yourself sound smart, just very basic understanding of grammar (noun-verb agreement, punctuations.. and all of that BS).
I know that some of Deaf people do have difficulty with grasping the concept of grammar for some reason (maybe it is related to their mental condition, or upbringing, or whatever) but it doesn't really excuse them from not trying to improve or make sure that everybody who is reading their posts ACTUALLY understand it without having to sit there, trying to read the post and end up with a huge headache to show for it.
I do agree that taking some passages from this forum to make the video is not a great idea but I do understand why he did it (to show us what we ACTUALLY type out).
(I will be back later, I am getting call to the bed. Looking forward to seeing more posts regarding this topic. I will have the transcript edited in the first post when I wake up )
I just left a message to creator of that youtube. Here's what I wrote - "It is too bad that you have to hear them having sex while you're making this lame video. Sucks to be you! BTW - it's 2 deaf people having sex, silly."
EDIT- that fool disabled comments system. oh well.
