At first I was unsure about where this was going because of the lousy sim-comming and the "she has never been able to experience..." stuff. And then.... it all made sense. Hope you enjoy this (And be sure to turn on the captions :))

This is the kind of art (writing, videos, etc.) we need to see from hearing people. We don't need them to try and pretend to be deaf or to try and tell stories from a Deaf point of view, or generate unnecessary sympathy and draw attention to what being deaf doesn't allow us.

We just need them to be themselves and be truthful about it. Thanks, Mr. Bennett.
