The “Deaf””Community” is by in large VERY Liberal and VERY “entitled”.

A quick web search on Gallaudet University will provide plenty of confirmation on that for those that don't believe you.

I still don't understand why the GSA ever started providing a deaf interpreter for the girl. I don't think they meet the "public accomodation" requirement/definition. The GSA seems to have dug its own ditch in this matter.

We live about 5 miles from the “Iowa School for the Deaf” WHAT an “Entitled” bunch THEY are. 24 Karat EVERYTHING! Nothing but the BEST for the “Crippled” “Mafia”!

My deaf cousin actually got WORSE at reading lips while spending 4 years at Gallaudet. Her friends were absolutely horrible at it and could only sign. My cousin said the community was so insular that it was just a bunch of deaf people signing to each other with not much attempt to integrate with the hearing world.

That's how the Boy Scouts escaped having to admit homosexuals, they're not a "public accommodation." It's anyone's guess how the quirky courts will rule on something like this, however. The ADA has seen incredible expansion and twisting under judicial rule since Bush41 signed it into law.
