deaf
If you missed the X Games this weekend, you missed a surprisingly dope women's Moto X finals, in which 18-year-old Ashley Fiolek pulled ahead on the last lap to take the gold. Even doper? She's deaf! And while we're not about to sexualize a young lass of 18 by including her in one of our crass blog posts, she did get us thinking about identity politics and the way Deaf culture is so often...nah, she just got us thinking about hot Deaf women. And yeah, we used the capital D because we're sensitive. Also, because the women we're thinking of can definitely get the capital D. Ya heard? Oh. Uh, probably not...
