it’s considered controversial because it’s glorifying the hearing world, and the Deaf community do not consider themselves as having a disability. They have their own culture and language, and when they see videos like this it may upset them because it’s glorifying hearing, like I said earlier.

I know who wish their parents had not made that choice… I’m a Deaf Studies minor and Deaf culture is such a beautiful community of people!
