Just because you know the alphabet in American sign language doesn’t mean you are fluent. Stop. I see too many people acting and saying they know all of sign language. You don’t. It’s a complex language that even people that study for years and years don’t know it all. It’s like every other language. Just because you know three signs doesn’t mean you know the whole language so don’t say you are fluent in it.

Flowey: “Because you ARE idiots. All of you.”

Flowey: “Why would I…. …..”

*Flowey is lost in thought.

Frisk: “Shi… eh… …. eeeh…. ini… anata no….. eeeeh…..”

Flowey: “….. Monster language is easier than that….”

Flowey: “Look, this is not a bad idea. You could learn sign language.”

Frisk: “It would be so nice!! Then, I could talk to deaf and mute people too! It would be great!”

Flowey: “But yeah, only you could learn… I don’t have hands.”

12, 15, 22, 37?

12: is there something you would like to say to someone?

Oh, yeah!! I have this friend and they keep telling me that white people aren’t attractive and it pisses me off because it took me a long time to be with the way I look and I need them to stop. Like, I’m all about saying what’s on your mind and being honest, but we’re friends and friends don’t tell friends that they are ugly (even inadvertently) (And like, I KNOW they aren’t talking about me specifically, but I am a teenage girl, and I am insecure, okay? 

15: what is your favorite kind of gum?

Trident, the original kind. Although I do love the crazy flavors. Honestly, as long as it is not bubblegum flavored, we are good. 

22: can you do the alphabet in sign language?

Well, I just tried, and I can’t but I did only learn this summer. I can spell my name. (And sing it backwards, which may be useless in comparison, but way cooler) 

37: did you have a dream last night?

Yes. Don’t remember what it was tho. 

Ask me questions!!

Pokemon GO related deaf rant

This isn’t a huge to do but like why…

….would they choose those signs of all things?

Why not use “Y”,“B”, AND “R” from the American Sign Language alphabet? So much easier to remember/do. Plus, you wouldn’t even need the distance signs since those three letters are so distinct. 

Maybe I’m just tired but like I feel there are so many better options.. I dunno.
