Wow, for a deaf woman, she sure didn't talk like Marlee Matlin.

Okay, the nurse says "Can you hear me?" while she has her eyes covered and she nods. How can she understand what the nurse said if she's never heard sound before?
Because deaf people can still learn sounds through written words, they can understand enough to speak themselves, even if it's not very clear. Deaf people are not learning disabled.
Plus, I'm gonna guess that this is perhaps the end of a long speak therapy regimen as well as not being the first actual moments of hearing as tehy likely experimented or at least fiddled with her device/operation/what have you to give her hearing to her.
Not saying they are learning disabled, just that how can you know what a sound should sound like if you have no frame of references to begin with? Reading wouldn't be impaired but I would assume that your mind would construct it's own sounds as a frame of reference in the absence of a prior experience. It isn't the same as say a blind person gaining sight, as you can touch and feel what you can see (at least some of it) but you cannot touch or feel sound (vibrations don't count)
Ok. When I think of deaf I am thinking totally deaf, rather than hearing impaired.
Garcet, I had the same reaction initially, mostly because I remember watching a documentary where a blind man was given back his sight but asked to be returned to blindness six months later because he couldn't deal. Having never had the opportunity to learn depth perception, the sighted world was just too chaotic and dangerous for him.

If she were born deaf she wouldn't be able to speak with perfect pronunciation. Nor would she immediately understand spoken English.
well thanks for your opinion professor dullfuck
Sorry, deaf with a capital D. Will you all get off your horses now?

I'm not crying and if you say otherwise I'll punch you so hard.

'Hot retard" should be a tag.
Here to stay, Portal of Empathy.
Portal of teenage edge
I want fatties in pain, and juggalo furry wrestling, and Gangstalking protips, not Baby's First Steps and group hugs- that's what the rest of the internet is for. We don't come here to feel good; we come here to watch other people feel bad!
It totes should a tag so I could find that video OF YOUR MOM.
She's not even a real retard, though. She's faking it!
Don't presume to speak for the rest of us.

people who are anti-science and use progressive like its a dirty word: fuck you.

Are we really yelling "FAKE!" for this video guys? There's not even a UFO or someone throwing a football really far.
At least the UFO guys put some effort into their fakes. This is totally a regular girl photoshopped to look deaf.
Some of these comments. Am I on Reddit?

Wouldn't. Those tats are just hideous.
She'll be just crushed when she finds out.
THA SUGAH RAIN
Im an awful person because her tatoos are ugly? Thats some great moon man logic.
No, there's a plethora of reasons. I also like how you instantly turn into internet-debating-bot. "Oh you're calling me awful? Well I find your so-called logic highly flawed."
THA SUGAH RAIN
If I can't yell at strangers about nonsense, then what's this all been about?
THA SUGAH RAIN, there's a couple of videos with human females in them further down the list and you utterly failed to comment on their fuckability. You keep slipping up like this and we're going to have some words at your quarterly review.

I can tell it's fake by the pixels. I use Photoshop.
|drcrypt - 2011-09-30 |
And now this poor girl will be vilified by the deaf community for selling out her "culture." Even so, I bet this is worth it.
