I was really impressed with the documentary 'American Sign Language: Signs of Deafness in America' that is about the growing number of Deaf and hard of hearing people in the USA. This is the first time that I've ever heard about the deaf community and I was surprised. In the '70s, the Deaf community in America was scattered. In the early 1970s, it was very easy to move to the US from other countries. Even though the '65-'75 Deaf rights movement was strong, Deaf people weren't as active as they are today. They were basically suppressed by the community. I thought this documentary was really interesting. It talked about the many ways in which the Deaf community is different than hearing people. Even though hearing people have much more privileges than Deaf people, the Deaf community is still limited by society's expectations and limitations. Hearing people can do so much more than Deaf people, but they are still considered "other" by the society. This documentary showed that the Deaf community is very individualistic, and they don't mind their disability. Deaf people are able to understand other cultures very well, and they can talk and write in Sign Language. This is an important part of their culture. Even though Deaf people aren't the most active people, they still enjoy the benefits of society. Deaf people are more productive than Deaf people, and they are still considered "other" by society. They do not have to put up with society's assumptions and limitations. This documentary was very informative and it helped me understand the Deaf community more. I recommend this documentary to everyone.

I must say I was so impressed with this documentary that I just had to watch it again. I have been following the story of Deaf West Hollywood since I was a child. I was born with hearing loss. When I was six years old I was "deaf" for three months and I was put in an "auditory rehabilitation center" and read every word in sign language. I could never understand a word spoken in sign language. It was just something you had to learn how to do. You have to learn how to read sign language to understand any word that is spoken in sign language. That is why the word "deaf" means hearing loss. Because hearing loss in the rest of the body is just a sign that something is wrong. Hearing loss is what your body is telling you is wrong. It's the same as Deaf loss in the brain. It just is what your body is telling you. Some people have a lifetime of hearing loss and they are born with no hearing and there are days that you are completely deaf. Then when you start to develop hearing problems they are so severe that you can't talk, you can't understand words that are spoken to you, you have a seizure that you can't control. You can't breathe, you can't speak, you have a lot of difficulty in walking, and you have a lot of difficulty in moving around. The most common problem in people with hearing loss is the otoscope. It's something that they put on the otoscope and it makes sounds come out of the otoscope and it's the hearing loss. It's like a big loud voice. It's a huge problem. Then there is some more serious problems. There is a deaf person who was born deaf. They're also born with no hearing and they don't know that they're deaf until they grow up. When they hear that something is wrong they are very upset. They don't know how to fix it. Then there's some more serious problems. The most serious problem is from the perspective of the deaf person's health. The most serious problem is deafness and the main thing is it affects your whole body. If you don't know what it is you'll just think that you're deaf. The otoscope, if it's damaged or not properly connected to the brain it will just make noise in your ear and you won't be able to hear. If it's damaged and connected properly it's like a small tube that goes down your ear. It'll just make noise. It's not just noise. There is a big problem of getting to see the hearing loss. The only way to see it is through a hearing aid. The most common problem is hearing aids. They're very bad. A hearing aid can damage the body and will just make noise in your ear. A hearing aid can make a big noise in your ear. The only way to see the hearing loss is to get a hearing aid. The problem is the doctors don't understand the problems of the people with hearing loss. So they don't understand that hearing loss is a big problem. I think that this is one of the most important things that this film showed. I think that a lot of people don't know how serious this problem is. There is something wrong with our whole body and we have to fix it. The other problem is that it affects the hearing and the hearing is damaged in the body. Then there is the problem with people that have no health insurance. So the health insurance company doesn't cover it. If you have health insurance you don't have to pay anything for your hearing loss. If you don't have health insurance you are out of luck. But that's the way it is. There are people out there who don't have health insurance. That's the reality. We all need to
