Why is Shoshannah Stern Pissed Off?

Another PSA by the Deaf Hope team – a very creative and well-done message! The only feedback we have is that we wish the opening line did not minimize Deaf identity, which is not even relevant to the PSA message. Deaf women who identify themselves as Deaf first share the same concerns as the actress, who says she identifies herself as a woman first, not Deaf. Hearing women share the same concerns as well. It does not make much sense to us to frame it as a choice between identifying first as Deaf or as a woman. Other than, this we love the video and hope the message on rape culture sinks in.
