“I think that they both have a lot of faith in their relationship now. He was willing to sacrifice things for her campaign, and in the finale, she returned the favor by being willing to make a sacrifice for his career as well. I think it’s entirely possible that he could take the job. And I’m excited by that idea. Especially to see how the two of them behave in Washington, D.C. – that’s like placing Mikey & Minnie Mouse in Disney World for the first time ever.”—

Some of you may have heard of Dirty Signs with Kristin. A youtube channel where a hearing person (who seems to have never studied ASL) is showing how to sign dirty phrases in ASL. However, it’s not even grammatically correct, some of the vocabulary is wrong, and some of the phrases are completely sexist & racist. She just announced that she has gotten signed to publish a book. This is where we need to come in and tell her this is NOT okay. Please click through the link to read more about this and read some of the fantastic comments being left about this. Take the time to email the publisher about this. Share this on tumblr & facebook. Tweet about it (even Marlee Matlin did!).
In addition, I have tried to communicate with Kristin via her Dirty Signs with Kristin facebook page and instead she has blocked me and has been consistently deleting any critical comments being left on her wall. Not cool Kristin. Not cool.
Doesn’t she have a segment on Tosh.0 too?
Yup! She does. AND this is also where we come in to stop her.
Sometimes, the reaction from teams outside the Southside American Little League is different. Nadia said she hears occasional snarky quips and put-downs.
“There was a tournament at Cortland. They were like, ‘Oh, a girl pitcher. We can so hit her,’” she said. “I got a little intimidated. But I gave it my all. And I struck a lot of them out. It was fun.”
Nadia said her girl friends have questions, too.
“They’re like, Nadia, that’s a boys sport,” she said. “I’m like, it’s a really fun sport, though. You should try it.”
