Great commentary on ASL

This article reflects on the current media fascination with sign language and while it is good to have a more visual presence within the media, they talk about how it has actually been perpetuating the idea that ASL is not a full language but rather gestures, pantomime, etc. At the benefit of the non-deaf audience. There has been limited focus on the deaf population whose language is American Sign Language.

ASL is not performance art.
