Lon Chaney, Sr is not deaf. Irrelevant of this discussion. I do welcome names of any Deaf child that grew up within pro-ASL Deaf family that ended up with excellent English writing skills before the middle ages (25 to 35 average ages) while never being exposed to SEE/PSE (or any other English oriented sign language).
Marlee Matlin started with SEE too. :p
I'll give you a clue. Check the alma mater listings at Berkley. Look for a PH.D. after several names. All Deaf of Deaf. Obviously, they have managed to accomplish much more than you, yourself, have. And all with an L1 language of ASL.
Dude, you are either a hearing person in here to do nothing other than troll the Deaf, or you are a deaf person with serious acceptance isssues regarding your own deafness, and must put down others in order to feel better about yourself. You don't need to spend a lot of time discussing language, as you have no knowledge of that which you are attempting to discuss. You would be much better off using your time to chat with a good therapist.
