SNL skit about the fake ASL interpreter - thoughts?
My mom & uncle were talking about this skit yesterday and I hadn't had the chance to see it until today. I'm not really sure about to feel about this but I'm not surprised. It's American Sign Language, a form of communication that the deaf community relies on and a huge part of who they are. I had to rely on it growing up until I started speaking so it was and still my first language. Mixed feelings about it, I have to admit that. I DO understand they're poking fun at the fake interpreter, though but still… I GUESS maybe I am being a bit oversensitive but I am deaf.
