Is She Trying To Destroy ASL?

March 5, 2007

Possibly, Melissa is giving wrong information about ASL She is claiming her idea on her own like she tries to change our language. On her profile, she said ” It is funny because many deaf people discriminate against me more than hearing people….”. It’s more likely she refuses to see what she had done to many people not just deaf people.  Share your opinion in here if you wish. See this video ….

    Melissa you have a huge ball for making up signs without any respect for American Sign Language! I am absolutely sure that ASLTA will fail and ban you in getting your certification forever! Stay out of our lives and our language is beautiful and your signing skills sucks big time!! It makes me puke to see you sign!!

    Melissa… you assume ASL is sexist or discriminates against gender but it does not and ASL requires no “improving”. There is no research to support your assumptions. Although new signs come in ASL often as most living languages do I have serious doubts your ideas will catch on. You cannot change what is not broken.

  9. March 7, 2007 at 10:45 am

    Listen, folks! Jane K. Fernandes would include her in her university mission in which respect thrives. Honest! Check with her mentor Irving Jordan and the Gallaudet University Board of Trustees. These two women are NUTS!

    OMG – Melissa, There is NO way you could have the power to change the ASL to PSL. The way you sign looks more ridiculous than it should be. If you want to change it – do it in YOUR OWN WAY but you will never, I emphasize NEVER NEVER change our own language, ASL since its been here for so many years! So BACK OFF and leave ASL ALONE!

    In fact, this is the most horror movie video I have evern seen. That is beyond my understanding why she has done that and offended our own ASL and Culture.

    Why does not she do by mentioning female, woman and male, man as well as she, he. I think that the term of male, man and he is no difference from ASL. Why dont we would say in English like woman for woman maman for man. That would be equal as well as Female for female, mamale for male. Why not.

    I am so furious at her!!!!!!

    I agree with her about the equality of the sexes. ASL for male and female relatives shows too old fashioned of how high the males are than females. Time has changed so fast and is modernized. In about 50 more years there may be no more deaf babies so we should be flexible about CI and enlarge audio and speech centers. SLCC rooms at Gallaudet should be almost all for audio and speech. BE MODERN, ASL guys.

    OH MY GOSH, why change the beautiful ASL to PSL?! Hey, man usually is taller than woman… not about equal. I agree with Bosten about hat and bonnet , they are the real reason why the orginal signs for woman and man!!
    I am a woman and I believe in both sex equal, but I am sticking with ASL! What is more is that foreign deafies have their own sign for their own countries. We , deaf people, respect them and follow their own country signs!! Melissa, You do not respect us deaf people in the whole world! You should put your video in the comedy show!

    Interesting to read how some Deafies are easily threatened by change.

    Have to admit that some aspects of ASL is extremely sexist. Loosely based on old ideas and values that the “male is dominate” and “female is submissive”? Yeah riiiiight.

    Welcome to the 21st century.

    So, this person does have a very valid point, whether you people like it or not. Unless, you guys still believe that woman are inferior?

    Btw, the last time I checked, a bonnet is worn on the TOP of the head like a hat. Not on the chin.

    “I agree with her about the equality of the sexes. ”

    You are right. I wonder if ASL/English should be equal just as both sex equal. I believe in Deaf community will be more fear to change new sign language

  38. TRH
    March 7, 2007 at 3:03 pm

    Reply to “R”…. so what woman hat are on top nowadays. The orginal signs for woman and man are just fine by me. It has nothing to do with the opinion of yours about dominate and submissive. The Orginal woman sign has a meaning… bonnet with ribbon to tie, NOT INFERIOR. I like to think it as men taller than women.

  41. R
    March 7, 2007 at 4:03 pm

    TRH,

    Ok.

    To follow your thinking, some male hats are also tied down below the chin. However, I do not see any reference to that. Also, CURRENTLY women do not wear bonnets anymore. Therefore, IMO the male/female positioning in ASL is more SEXIST than descriptive.

    It’s all very selective, isn’t it?

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Just don’t shoot the messenger.

    Why be theatened by a girl with an idea? Nothing wrong for improvement.

    Just one girl.

    She was making a point. Not changing a language (even though it is on outdated ideas of inequality).

    ASL will not change. So relax.

    Melissa did not try to give an idea. She wanted to hurt ASL. She said people are misunderstood with american sign language and deaf people make discrimination against her. She is dishonest with people. She makes many people and new signers confused and misunderstood. Her sign language skill is not american sign language. She uses her voice in ASL. ASL is not a spoken language. She left many important signed words out while she signed like she hides something from the Deaf people. People’s Sign Language is an ugly name. ” People” means everyone in the world. Her video is old but why did she bring it back? She wanted to kill ASL.

    First, you say that you are using ASL but you are voicing in almost perfect English grammar as you sign which is impossible to do if you were using ASL.

    Second, your repair to ASL is based on some faulty logic I think. The sign for boy/male is made higher on the head than the sign for girl/female. This does not show that ASL is sexist or that men are thought to be better than women in ASL. Does ASL somehow claim a BEE is better than than a FROG? It is nice you want to inject some equality into ASL but it already has complete gender equality. The location of a sign is just one of many parameters and the height of a sign most often has no value judegment inherent within it.

    Also, your wanting to restrict the right and left sides to the meanings you determine competely ignores the existing rules for handedness in ASL. Don’t fix what is not broken. ASL is better than any constructed language as every natual language on Earth is.

    Did everyone forget that the reason female signs are from the nose down and male signs are from the nose up? It’s because women have to hold up and support the men. Without women, men are useless…

    This is hilarious! This poor woman needs to understand that ASL is not the only language that adopts masculine and feminine elements in its grammar.

    One thing that makes ASL beautiful is that it is symmetrical, regardless of which hand is dominant. This means the ideas presented in this vlog, however noble, is nonsensical and not practical. To change a language, more people have to accept it.

    Is she also starting a campaign to change the English words for “woman”, “female” and “lesbian”…. I mean they are much longer words than “man”, “male” or “gay”— that is not equal either, right?
    I am sorry I could not watch the whole thing. Hurts my eyes.

    Ummm, I doubt Melissa can change ASL at all. Her chance to change sign language will not happen at all. We can just ingore her instead of getting any type of attention. Like a dog modification behavior rules, Remember we need to give a good behavior an attention instead of bad behavior so they can understand that they need to do that good attention. Whacking dog around is not going to help at all. So why not ingore her like she is bad dog??

    hi I am sorry I do not think PSL is not natural language that deaf people commonly use. I know so that alot of deaf people prefer to use ASL beacause it is valuable and natural beautiful languageKH
