Why body language is universal language?

The most likely reason is that this way there would be little to no miscomunication between members of a species. In fact, most simple body languages cross in between species as well, which leads to solidify the likelyhood that it's natures way of ensuring less miscomunication.

Is a mute person who uses sign language to communicate considered disabled?

AnswerThey are considered "disabled" because they don't have the ability to speak.

This is the dictionary definition of disability: "A disadvantage or deficiency, especially a physical or mental impairment that interferes with or prevents normal achievement in a particular area."

Having a disability doesn't mean you can't do things, it just means you have a certain disadvantage.

AnswerThey also might be deaf because when you are deaf you can't hear what you are saying so it sounds like a very odd accent and sometimes impossible to understand. AnswerOne way of calling them are "Differently Abled" not disabled. They may not be able to speak but they could still communicate.

As mentioned in a very good previous answer , they are disadvantaged. That disadvantage is that not very many people are capable of signing back. This makes it extremely hard to comunicate. This is not a statement of any mental or physical capablities, just a disadvantage in communicating.

AnswerI must humbly say that the second answer is inaccurate. This question does not mention the ability to hear. Inability to speak is not the same as the inability to hear. Anyone can have one or both. And, in addition, there are plenty of people who can speak but are not understood by others because they speak a different language. So, are they disabled because they can speak a foreign language and not English?


The Deaf community does NOT like to be referred to as "disabled" or "impaired" . If they can not speak maybe they choose not to speak or do not know how. Plus, they function perfectly well and communicate just as well as hearing people when they are within their own community.

Also: Regards to the third answer above. I have many Deaf friends, and when we go out in public, they are able to communicate very well, non-verbally, and are quite capable of functioning. I would not call it a disadvantage. It is really the hearing world that has a disadvantage because they do not know sing language.


While deafness or an inability to speak is technically a disability, which would be covered by the ADA for example, the Deaf community (with a capital 'D') does not consider itself to be a community of disabled people, but rather they have a cultural identity that makes them "different."

In American Sign Language, VAGINA can be signed as follows.

Both hands use the L handshape. Use your thumb and index finger to form an 'L', and fold the remaining fingers in. Create the 'L' with both hands and turn them upside down. Then, bring the two thumbs and two index fingers together.
