There’s A Sign For That

In ASL there is a sign for ‘victim’. I see a lot of people fingerspell the word. Maybe it’s unfamiliar to them. I dunno.

Recently, I’ve seen some people sign ‘pervert’ (hand open) when they mean to sign ‘arrest’ (hand closes). Being in a hurry and not completing the sign can be awkward. If you’re trying to convey “The police arrested…” and you sign – ‘police pervert…’ or “I was arrested” and you sign – ‘I/me pervert’ well…ummmm yah. ooops. lol
