Meet the Author



KRISTIN HENSON first started learning American Sign Language when she was a student at Rochester Institute of Technology, which has a significant deaf population. Her dorm mates were more than happy to “help” her out. She once signed “I want a large pizza” to the worker at the school’s dining hall, only to discover that her friends had taught her to sign “I want lesbian vagina.” Since then, Henson has become fascinated with learning dirty phrases in ASL and sharing them with the world at large.

    This author is not fluent in America Sign Language (ASL), and misrepresents her knowledge and background in this language. She is exploiting an entire community and language for her own profit- not to mention that her so-called translations are wildly inaccurate and not very culturally conceptual. She is taking advantage of the mainstream community's lack to recognize the sham of a language model she is selling as ASL.

    This woman did not even take ASL one class.  All her claims of knowing ASL are from picking up a few signs from people in her dorm.

    Hack Material and misguided attempt at humor - there is no humor

    Hack Material and misguided attempt at humor - there is no humor in not knowing the language and having no proper background or education, and even admitting to making some signs up. This would not be allowed in any other cultural group - only because the publishers and author think they can fool the public into thinking this is a true introduction to any sign language let alone good ol smut. Attend the various ASL comedy shows out there by many deaf performers and see the true smutty signs, take the classes and workshops and learn the truly offensive and conceptually correct way to throw your hotdog down a hallway!

    This book is a disaster of incorrect signs and misinformation. If you want to try to decipher unclear pictures to learn the wrong signs for idiomatic phrases that don't translate well so that no Deaf person anywhere will ever understand what the hell you are trying to say, feel free to waste your money on this nonsense. Kristin is widely despised by the Deaf community for being a talentless hack who is exploiting their language for her personal gain.  Her incompetence and her linguistic abuse of ASL are well on display here.  The book is garbage -- it fails as language instruction and it fails as comedy.  Examples:  "Who wants a mustache ride" translates as "who wants a mustache to straddle something and take a ride?"  "Douche Canoe" translates as....I don't know....my best guess is "A wet tampon being squeezed while someone is paddling a boat".  Such is life when you do what should NEVER be done.....transposing idioms of one language into another language with ZERO consideration for the linguistics of the target language.  The author and her publishers should be embarrassed and ashamed of themselves.  But they won't be if they take your money, if you're naive enough to buy this tripe

    This person does not know ASL. AT ALL. I am Deaf and a Native American Sign
    Language user. Meaning I use it 24 hours a day, and when I dream , sleep
    talk- it is in ASL. So, this girl's vlogs and book translated into incoherent toddler 
    chatter - such as "bag enough of noses" and such. Honestly, if you purchase this
     piece of trash, study it and come up and sign it to me, I would think you are either
    a.) drunk hearing person who deserves a slap. B.) on Heavy drugs c.) need medical
    help. Her book is FRAUDULENT. Her book does not make sense. For example, one translated as "Bag Enough noses "
    WHAT??  Even the COVER of the BOOK does not translate into ANYTHING.
    However, if the fingers were curved together it would be"reinforce". I am really shocked the publishers went
    ahead with her book and wasted their money and time. She is not ready to publish a book if she does not know BASIC American SIgn Language.
    Do not waste your money and time buying this book which is made up of crude made-up home gestures that do not translate to a LANGUAGE!!
    Also, when Deaf people and ASL users, interpreters, teachers, and anyone who tried to
    call out on her knowledge of ASL after seeing her sneak preview facebook page - she deleted
    EVERY comment that raised questions. This girl is not ready to handle the truth, the reality, and the world of writing books.

    This book is an UTTERLY DISGRACE! The author who is a hearing student is not fluent in American Sign Language (ASL). All signs in her book are inaccurate. She exploits the Deaf communities across the nation and created pseudo dirty signs for her own profit. Please do not buy her book.

    I was skeptic at first because of all the bad reviews and I wanted to check it out in the store first before buying. Well, I'm glad I did. As someone who is learning ASL for a family member who is deaf, I could not follow the illustrations easily. They are not clear and there were a few times I thought I was signing correctly, only to look it up online (videos) and find out I was doing it wrong. So even if you wanted to learn a few phrases, you'd be better off making gestures (think of it as a charades game or as if you're talking to a foreigner who cannot speak English) than following the illustrations in this book

    This book was written by a non-native, non-fluent person. In fact, use these signs around Real Live Deaf People™ and you will surely upgrade your social status from Ignorant™ to Grade-A Hearing Fool™ (also know in ASL as HEARING-MINDED). So go ahead, unlock that new achievement! Show the Deaf community just how much you "care" about them. Use these signs and you will surely lock yourself into years of mockery! It's the best thing ever. So buy this book, memorize the signs, and then use them around Real Live Deaf People™.

    I've learned some great "smutty" sign language over the years in my language development. This book does not even compare. This book is clearly a waste of time, and does not even come close to portraying accurate American Sign Language. If you wanted to learn real dirty signs, this book is definitely not the way to do it. She is a student who attempted to write a book about language. The publishers should be ashamed of themselves & get an expert who actually know what they are doing.

    On YouTube, the author professes to be fluent enough in American Sign Language to teach the ASL version of English slang phrases. She began this vlog without even taking ASL. All her claims in her various interviews and biographies that she learned ASL at RIT is a reference to picking up a few signs from people in her dorm. This book exploits the Deaf community, takes advantage of non-signers' inability to discern real ASL from fake, made-up, literal and non-conceptual signing, and makes a mockery of ASL. Please do not buy this book.
