I usually don’t watch TV, but I watched Survivor.
It made me a little angry. It seemed like they purposefully picked outdoorsy capable, physical guys, but for the most part picked wimpy girls. Splitting the temas along the sexes is fine as far as I’m concerned, but it shouldn’t be loaded to make the women fail.
Then of course there is the deaf girl. She has the most open face. She seems like the only genuine truly nice and capable person on the whole show. If there was ever a person who made a stronger impression of being sweet, kind, open and good, I can’t remember it.
The rest of the woman treated her horribly. It was like she didn’t exist. I can’t beleive they were that cold and mean. Did you hear the excuse? “She has a communication problem.”
Excuse me! The woman’s deaf. She still speaks clear english, and she can read lips. It’s not a problem if you can show the barest minimum of consideration and look at her when you speak. It’s not a big deal to do that.
You would think that in the Amazon it might be worth that tiny modicum of effort in order to reap the benefits of communicating with her seeing as she is an adventure guide.
I have other news as well. I’m not the world’s greatest judge of character, but I don’t have to be in order to tell you that she would be a loyal and trustworthy person to have as an ally. The ability to read lips just might come in handy when people walk off by themselves to have sotto-voiced conversations. It just might be an advantage to be able to tell what other people are saying when they are talking to low to hear.
Cocky guys and mean stupid worthless women. I hope one of them gets a clue.
