    Glad that I never turned on my speakers. I had the unadulterated silent version! Glad I opted out of the sound track!

    If I were the lucky boyfriend, he'd be banned from leaving the bedroom -- except for the occasional bathroom breaks. icon_twisted.gif

    Btw, he prob doesnt sign that slow all the time... I think it was partially for the audience to learn something... and even if he does, it takes time to get fast at it... its not like dating someone from another country, you hit it off online, the problem isnt super apparent until after you meet, THEN you realize you have to learn something completely new. Its not like being deaf and gay comes around that often, its hard enough being one or the other...

    OMG!! This is exactly what my hearing boyfriend did when he wanted to do with me. It was sooo lovely!!! I am very surprised that this hearing guy made a video for his deaf boyfriend on the network instead of in person to person. SWEET!!

    I don't think deaf people are offended by his mistakes. He gets an "A" for effort. But don't take my word for it -- here are a couple of comments posted on YouTube by deaf people:

    WOW. I d be your door first and steal you home. Keep up with the great work and working on your sign language skills. I can teach you some more in bed too. LOL! Great job and stay a hottie!

    *laughing* What a cute sign language. I am deaf myself. Keep up the good work! You have a passion for learning sign language. Keep it go, man! icon_smile.gif

    meninlove said lol swimmermatt and hisalterego, try to consider this; Imagine you are in Holland , fall in love with a Dutch guy, you don't know the language, so you learn some phrases as fast as you can and make a love-letter vid. Your pronunciation is off and sentence structure poor, though understandable.

    Imagine a Dutch guy comes here and doesn't know English. He falls for you, you are completely smitten, and to top it off he makes up a vid in his broken English to tell you he's head over heels. You gonna slap him for that? Sniff disdainfully that he didn't learn English well enough, so how dare he do what he did?

    Something to think about.

    -Doug


    The difference here is not that they are meeting for the first time. The guy isn't signing from the prospective of a new relationship, but that of an already-established relationhip. Although I understand the scenario you present, I don't think the sitations are similar. In my opinion, no further analysis can be teased from the comparison of my original statements and the answer to your questions. Personally, I don't believe you can fall in love with someone you don't know. If you can't properly communicate, then how can you really know someone? I believe what many people call 'love at first site' is really 'smitten at first site'... the actual love comes later. And that is precisely the situation you describe.

    To answer your question, which, again, to me, describes a different situation, I would not scorn anyone for that. However, I would be alarmed that someone could be head over heels for me when they couldn't possibly know me very well since we don't speak the same languages and could not have communicated in depth.

    . What the guy is doing is analogous to someone sending me a video like that in bad spanish... I speak Spanish, how can someone speak such bad Spanish and still date me? It´s cute that they tried, but he really needs to speak Spanish before dating me. If you are serious you lean my language fluently.

    You need a holiday or a drink


    Again, you take what you want and disregard the rest. I specifically described my impressions of their relationship from this video and based my criticisms on that. You took out those specificities to suit your arguments. (This is evident by taking partial quotes and replacing quoted language with sputterings of your own.)

    Metaphor... Keeping the domains of meaning separate:
    I am the receiver of my hypothetical Spanish video;
    'Deaf Gay' is the receiver of this ASL video.
    I would be touched by a what-I-perceive-to-be-similar effort on the part of my hypothetical Spanish speaker;
    'Deaf Gay' MIGHT BE touched by this effort too.

    Metonymy... Replacing one domain of meaning with another:
    Speaking the Spanish language between two hearing individuals is the same as a hearing individual signing ASL to a deaf individual;
    Therefore, Broken Spanish is the same as Broken ASL.
    I am the receiver of my hypothetical Spanish video;
    'Deaf Gay' is the receiver of this ASL video.
    I would be touched by a what-I-perceive-to-be-similar effort on the part of my hypothetical Spanish speaker;
    'Deaf Gay' IS touched by this effort too.

    In this instance, you are now speaking from the perspective of the receiver of this message. The fact that you are OK with it somehow equates to the other person. Earlier you chastised me for not knowing their relationship, which, I admitted, was correct. However, you asserted that your interpretation was correct simply based on the fact that I did not know the details of their relationship. Yet, somehow you forgot that you don't know anymore about their relationship than I do. So, how is it again that your interpretation is correct? Oh, did I ever insinuate that my interpretation IS correct? Or did I simply provide another perspective?

    ALEZANDAR saidI can't believe the negative reaction of some comments on here! all and I say ALL of my straight friends and straight co-workers who have seen this video have nothing but positive reactions and nice things to say about the young gay man on the video! NOT A SINGLE ONE had criticized or questioned the young man's lack knowledge or his delivery of sign language!

    That´s because they are not bitter and negative.


    @Lostboy: Wow! Really took that opportunity out to unneccarily bash someone. My comments in this thread have gone against the majority. If you consider going against the majority being negative, then, to you, I am negative. The bitter part... hmm, I'm not sure where you're drawing that from? Maybe you can elaborate more? It seems you increasingly focus on painting a picture of me than backing up your opinions.

    @Alezandar: Straight people do set American standards, so I guess if a bunch of them say it's great, IT IS GOLDEN! There are actually only two respectfully dissenting statements. The rest has been back-and-forth based on those... some retorts have not been so respectful. If you consider dissenting to be negative, so be it.

    Guys are visual creatures... we tend not to separate the act from the person doing the act. Deaf guys pop boners too. You bet anyone would give this a second glance if he was 20 years older, 20 pounds heavier, and just signing that he misses his bf--omitting the sex talk? This thread would be lucky to have a half a page of responses. And I doubt it would be a featured video on connexion.org.
