I agree with you Jeanie. I was watching John Doe a few months ago and what I really liked was the baddie that is part of some sort of secret agency that know who john doe is, the boss person is deaf, you could see him/her signing and what I liked about it was that for once, the deaf person isnt the victim!
Some parents, when their kids are deaf, will often wrap them up in cotton wool and identify them because of their disability. I was very lucky because I was raised to be ME, and I am independent, thanks to mum and dad.
Part of me is miffed that Christy is left out, but another part of me says that she needs to stand up for herself and get herself noticed instead of just staying in the background.
