Of all the things to lecture about

I've never understood why some people who are of certain religious persuasions tell people any kind of sex - including sex with yourself - is a bad thing.

So I was very surprised when Mr. RK found this video, which is specifically targeted to the deaf community, lecturing them about the evils of masturbation. (If you want a translation, click here.)



Seriously? There are people who put time, effort and MONEY into this? And of all of the outreach targeted to the deaf community, they've decided the best way is to tell them they shouldn't jerk off?

The other day on the way to work I drove by a guy who was holding a sign that said "Deaf and Homeless." I thought that must be a terrifying combination - living on the streets and not having all of your senses to alert you of danger. It was a major intersection and there was nowhere for me to pull over, but I hope I can see him again and give him some information to get help.

Meanwhile, someone added a nifty soundtrack to this video.

A few years back, I started learning ASL to be able to communicate with a coworker. The phrase I still remember: "Coffee makes me happy."

Some people have waaaay too much time on their hands. And no understanding of priorities. Which they 'might' recognise if the priorities bit them in intimate places - but probably not.

Girl Murphy said...

So am I to understand that you don't care that deaf people will go blind by masturbating, thus doubling their disability? That's cold, Riot Kitty. Very cold.

Every once in a while I think I have seen everything the Internet has to offer and then....

What a jerk!

What is a cowpoke really?

I'm just asking.... ;)

Masturbation=evil.

Unwanted pregnancies=good.

Sex without protection=good.

STD's=good.

Enhancing one's libido without inflicting aggravation on others=evil.

What. The. Fuck?

Ah 50 Cent. Love it.

Damn I missed the part in the Bible that said that wanking was a bad thing? That's it then, I won't be getting into heaven after all.

It is time to start lobbying for Same-self marriage.

Charles Gramlich said...

So many people who can't run their own lives want to tell us how to run our own lives and even what to do with our bodies. It's ridiculous.

Abby said...

That video is actually pretty funny. I don't believe for a second that that guy doesn't have sex with himself.

I have a (non hearing impaired) friend who teaches ASL. She taught me to say "thank you" instead of "puke". It's a fine line.

šŸ˜³ I am not sure I even have words for this

Dr. Cynicism said...

ha huh huh... he was signing about touching himself. haha

Furry Bottoms said...

*snicker* Well, I AM DEAF!!! And by the looks of the first guy signing and his facial expressions while wanking off, well signing on how to wank off, HOW THE HELL DOES HE KNOW HOW IT FEELS?

Well. Its the JHWitnesses. They try so hard to minister to everyone including the deaf. And no insults to anybody reading this, but this had become a widespread annoyance. NOW the people who come to the door know how to sign to me. Grrrrrreat.

Furry Bottoms said...

Oh, and now you know the sign for vagina. It is not a piece of pie. It is now a pizza slice. That is vagina. Don't use that hand gesture unless you're really talking about a vagina. Deaf people may mock you.

Lynn said...

That's just wacky. :) Coffee makes me happy, too - a great sign to learn.

Dexter Klemperer said...

Well what do you know? Turns out I already knew some sign language!

I assume we can also find this articulate, well-thought out presentation in braille form for the blind?

"Run your fingers over this braille presentation. Not your junk."

Riot Kitty said...

These are all making me laugh so hard I'm glad I don't have to piss.

Oh Help Me Nurse!
I must say I was thinking along the same lines as Girl Murphy, too.....lol! Deaf & Blind!
I had a wonderful dear dear friend---a genius of a painter, who was born deaf and he just LOVED to Masturbate and told me he did it at least once a day, every day if his life! It definitely did NOT effect his eyesight...lol!

I find it despicable that there are these people who tell others what they should and shouldn't do sex-wise!What is that really about???

Rock Chef said...

Wondering if playing the guitar to myself falls into a similar category...

Cheryl said...

Riot Kitty, if people don't read all the comments that get left on your posts they are missing some really great stuff.

As to the video itself... What the hell is wrong with people that feel the need to tell other people how to live their lives?

I am impressed that you took the time to learn ASL. I tried once and didn't do very well.

Riot Kitty said...

Naomi: Great minds think alike!
RC: HAHA!
Cheryl: You are so kind! And I didn't learn very much - unfortunately we both got laid off right after I started :(

Vanessa Morgan said...

Apparently these people have too much time and money on their hands.

Riot Kitty said...

Vanessa: Too true.
