As If We Needed Another Reason to Hate the Deaf:

I thought Marlee Matlin was enough, but now we've got this.

Too bad they're all deaf and not blind...(and I don't mean that in a mean way) but if they could hear but couldn't see, there would be no room for behavior like this.

Why blame the deaf, per se? Why not blame 15 to 19-year old boys, instead? They're all a bunch of juvenile delinquents! Line 'em up and shoot 'em all, I say! Can we say "Columbine?"

Oh, wait ... I was once a 15 to 19-year old boy.

Never-fucking mind.

Kids! They use their superpowers for evil, never good!

I kind of always liked that Marlee character. She plays the victim so well on Law and Order and CSI!

And Marlee also plays the defense attorney in "My Name is Earl."

I don't know, Grace. I think people can be idiots and hateful, no matter what race, religion, or disability they have. I got an email from a Jew the other day, talking about how he thought Australia had the right idea because it is kicking out any Muslim that wants to celebrate a particular sect of the Muslim faith. The email (which he just forwarded from someone else) said, "Australia is a country founded by good, Christian men and women, and if they can't understand that, they can leave!" The email concluded, "if all of us would forward this to our fellow Canadians and Americans, then we would know the truth!"

I half expected someone to jump up and scream, "SEIG HEIL!"

People are both dumb AND blind.

I second anonymousness's sentiments.

I know. I am almost deaf and a charter member of the Asshole Hall of Fame.

One can be both.

Um..wait. isn't Australia a country founded by convicts from Great Britain? A penal colony, if you will.

You are absolutely right, Rachel. But good, CHRISTIAN convicts! :-)

Grace said...

Better get use to that, Grace. I can just see you during a sentencing hearing.

ASA GRACE: Your Honor, the defendant should be sentenced to 20 years in the Department of Corrections.

THE COURT: Counselor, what provision of the PENAL Code authorizes that sentence?

ASA GRACE: Teeeheeheeheeheeheehee. You said PENAL, judge!

Grace said...

And by the way, it was just a fucking joke. I don't hate the deaf. Come on people. Seriously?

Grace said...

Marlee Matlin also plays a deaf Lezzie on the L Word. I think we should call deaf lezzies "Dezzies"
