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

thank and you.

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?
garcet71283 - 2011-09-30
Actually a really valid point. Calling shenanigans!

Aelric - 2011-09-30
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.

garcet71283 - 2011-09-30
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)

"I was born deaf and have worn hearing aids from the age of 2, but hearing aids only help so much. I have gotten by this long in life by reading lips. This was taken as they were activating the implant ... My whole life I've been complimented on how well I speak. I don't really have an answer for you other than I have always had a passion for reading, grammar, and English. My hearing loss was/is considered severe to profound."

Innocent Bystander - 2011-09-30
Okay, I'll buy that.

glasseye - 2011-09-30
"Deaf" encompasses a huge spectrum of hearing ability.

garcet71283 - 2011-09-30
Ok. When I think of deaf I am thinking totally deaf, rather than hearing impaired.

Its cool.

Jane Error - 2011-10-01
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.

Syd Midnight - 2011-10-01
Well, since low frequency sounds are felt more than heard, there are a number of therapies involving, say, the student placing their hand on the teacher's throat so they can feel the vibrations of the larnyx, almost like using their fingertips as substitute eardrums to "hear" muffled speech. This, combined with audio software that provides constant feedback can help a deaf person with a strong interest in the subject to get a more intimate understanding of the mechanism and subtleties of vocalization, and (I presume) exercise the neural pathways that hardwire speech in our brains. Also the nurses' question is pretty obvious from context alone.

But I'm sure its totally fake because Youtube commentators would have taken things like that into account, wise as they are

If she were born deaf she wouldn't be able to speak with perfect pronunciation. Nor would she immediately understand spoken English.

takewithfood - 2011-09-30
In the same way that a lot of people who are legally blind, or who identify as blind actually retain some degree of vision, some people who are deaf, or who identify as deaf, do have some hearing. Often this is enhanced with hearing aids of various kinds, though they don't always do that much. Still, you may be surprised how well people with minimal hearing ability can learn to speak and understand speech, usually through grueling training. The difference between a CI and hearing aids is often tremendous, though - hence her reaction.

kingarthur - 2011-09-30
My girlfriend's father is deaf and this is the case with him. He had to really struggle to learn to speak so that others can understand and his hearing aids help enough that he can hear low-end sounds well and plays bass in a band.

well thanks for your opinion professor dullfuck

Sorry, deaf with a capital D. Will you all get off your horses now?

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!

Are we really yelling "FAKE!" for this video guys? There's not even a UFO or someone throwing a football really far.
EvilHomer - 2011-09-30
At least the UFO guys put some effort into their fakes. This is totally a regular girl photoshopped to look deaf.

spikestoyiu - 2011-09-30
Some of these comments. Am I on Reddit?

exar_kun - 2011-10-01
EvilHomer for the win!

I also come here mostly to watch skaters fall of roofs or kids punch their little brothers in the face "accidentally", however I thought the ability to embrace the occasional "win" is what separated us from the youtube community. Well that and a comments section that doesn't scream it's inhabited by people two standard deviations below the norm.

Wouldn't. Those tats are just hideous.

Look it's fine that you're an awful guy and that's your thing but try to mix it up a little.

THA SUGAH RAIN - 2011-09-30
Im an awful person because her tatoos are ugly? Thats some great moon man logic.

Innocent Bystander - 2011-09-30
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 - 2011-09-30
If I can't yell at strangers about nonsense, then what's this all been about?

Jane Error - 2011-10-01
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.

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.
