In last week’s episode of ANTM, Devin took Nyle’s phone and consequently his primary means of accessing conversations. He also gained widespread sympathy from viewers, which creates the perfect opportunity to open space for a honest discussion about the deaf experience in America. Devin’s actions gave the public an insight into a pernicious attitude among hearing people that trivializes deaf people and our communication devices.
This attitude and resulting behaviors seriously impact deaf and hard of hearing people’s ability to integrate into and feel accepted in hearing communities, particularly in workplaces and social events.
While Nyle is on an upward curve in the competition and enjoys impressive popularity among viewers, both hearing and deaf, his life in the Top Model house hasn’t been so easy. In last week’s episode, “The Girl Who Got All Dolled Up,” during Devin’s birthday party, Devin takes Nyle’s phone and goes on a selfie spree. This is particularly hurtful, considering the previous week’s episode featured Nyle and his friend Brittany investing time and energy into teaching the other models sign language and exposing them to what it feels like to be deprived of your primary means of communication. Only when does Nyle give up and walk out do some of the models realize what they’ve done, and a few of them have the decency to apologize to him. After I graduated from KU, I moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, for my first newspaper job.
The staff was composed primarily of 20-somethings who liked to drink, party, and sleep with each other. My deafness and the lack of sign language gave me the sensation of being on the outside looking in, getting snippets of information here and there when people thought to include me.
But I noticed a pattern – when I met new people, half the time they viewed my notepad as the most awesome, cool thing in the world and took it and started scribbling to each other as though they were reliving their middle school gossip journals.
I was excited about the possibility that we’d have a new way to communicate outside work, where my only tool was the instant messaging system on our computers, and without pen and paper or laptops.
We all gathered on the couch and I turned on the TV, sent my then-boyfriend to another room, and called him through the VRS. I threw in the towel, moved out to a ranch in the country, and spent my free time snowboarding, ranch-sitting, and training horses until I left for graduate school a year later. The VRS incident profoundly affected me, and I shut out my classmates at American University. It took a long time for me to warm up to them, and only by my second year did I become friends with some of them, and only through Facebook.
We bought Dragon Diction voice-to-text software, which failed miserably and produced gibberish. Between that, a local surgeon turning me away because he “didn’t have the time” to communicate with me using a laptop, and the local hospital dragging its heels on setting up VRI … I was done. I constantly ask myself: Why should I feel this way, when it was hearing people who failed to understand the role of technology in my communication needs and the value I had to offer, if only they would get it? All the while, their exuberance, combined with ignorance, deprives us of a two-way connection and the ability to feel included and equal. Hearing people watching the show were exposed to one example of the treatment so many of us experience. Nyle has also shown extreme courage and dignity throughout the show, especially in the last two episodes, and he has served as an excellent ambassador of the Deaf community to a predominantly hearing viewership. Why aren’t we using that momentum to encourage hearing people to realize that Nyle’s experience is not restricted to the Top Model house, but is the experience of hundreds of thousands of deaf people?
What hearing people seem to struggle with is understanding how small, seemingly insignificant actions done “just in fun” can leave deep scars that take years to fully heal and that can often fundamentally change how the impacted deaf person views and interacts with all hearing people afterward. Over the past few days, people in the deaf community have been focusing primarily onone individual’s comments denigrating Nyle – comments that have absolutely no connection to the events on the show.

I work in a all hearing environment shooting celebrities for a living and I am the ONLY Deaf Female Photographer in the media. I learned to be aggressive with my peers and let them know my stance and that i can work in the environment that deafness should not stop me. An appeal to provide full accessibility for deaf persons in this highly competitive, cut-throat environment seemed not to have worked well for the most talented deaf individual. One has to examine if it is realistic to compete solely in the hearing environment without explicitly telling them they have to provide communicative accommodations to deaf aspirants. I need to add about the deaf female models who won high placements in national Miss Pageants: They were not successful in obtaining modelling jobs beyond few shots in magazines.

Danielle finally fixed the gap in her two front teeth to be much smaller (though she never closed it) and has constantly worked on her speech. Nyle’s response sent a powerful message about what it feels like when one person’s ignorance cuts you off from other people.
For more than 20 minutes, Nyle sits there, isolated and completely excluded from his peers’ conversation (not that he’s missing much, but that’s beside the point). Nyle even led the models in signing “Happy Birthday” to Devin just before Devin took his smartphone. I figured it would be good for personal growth to immerse myself in an all-hearing environment, three hours away from the closest deaf community. Sure, I’d grown up in the mainstream and went to a hearing university, but I’d always been provided with interpreters.
I had just begun signing when the interpreter looked past me, screwed up her face, and snapped at me, “This is entirely inappropriate. It’s still something I regret to this day, because they are wonderful, intelligent, fun people and I missed out on opportunities to discuss topics I loved with peers. I returned to the Steamboat newspaper, telling myself I’d be thicker skinned and more assertive. We left Steamboat and I took a job at Gallaudet, where I finally had complete access in the workplace and a full social life.


If only they would respect and embrace that technology rather than view it as a cool novelty and not a necessity.
We’re dumped out of our boxes and left on the floor while our communication tools are taken away and played with. While it is important to discuss internal bullying and exercise community accountability, we need to be thinking about how we as a community can use the momentum from widespread sympathy for Nyle to encourage more thoughtfulness among hearing people about how they treat deaf people on a daily basis. Now is when we have the prime opportunity to take advantage of Nyle’s popularity and connection with hearing viewers, engage them and other hearing people through mainstream and social media, and educate them that Nyle is far from alone in his experience of exclusion. I survived in the busy streets in NYC doing celebrity coverage and navigate with publicist in getting to my call time ready for red carpet shoots.

Especially one who has beensuch a brilliant ambassador of the deaf and hard of hearing community?
Hundreds of thousands of deaf people, myself included, deal with this in anonymity, every day. I would learn to integrate and advance my career, and I’d try harder to make hearing friends. I tried to talk with my coworkers and got hit on by rodeo cowboys (note: they don’t take rejection well and can’t write for shit when they’re plastered).
I was hurt that nobody apologized or recognized the significance of my reaching out to them. We need to urge them to understand that their actions, even as simple as taking away a phone or dismissing a communication tool as unnecessary, are more damaging than they realize. And let’s not allow this moment to pass us by and the baring of Nyle’s painful experiences to the public go to waste. Tara graduated from the University of Kansas School of Journalism and worked in the media industry for 10 years before joining the Gallaudet University Office of Development, in Washington, D.C. It does have it’s challenges but I have learned to roll in with the competitive world in media field. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Tyra Banks is the absolute star of the show, watch her make her 'supermodel' poses to teach the new models how the pros do it. I sat there for the first 15 minutes of the meeting before I finally got up and walked out, tears of frustration in my eyes. She also enjoys writing about disability and accessibility issues with the hope of increasing awareness among the general public. Like Nyle said, “I keep trying to communicate with them but I’m just tired of hinting and telling them. Employers like us to “complete” their collection, to represent diversity, but without providing us the full access we need.
