Halle Berry's black, but she's not black, y'know?

Two people discussing the Gallaudet protests:

Guy: Yeah, it would be like Howard appointing a white dude as president.
Girl: Yeah, I have a lot of sympathy for them. I mean, that woman isn't even deaf. I mean, yeah, she's deaf, but not deaf, y'know?

Maybe this person meant:

"I mean, yeah, she's deaf, but not def, y'know?"

Homonyms can be tricky!

She's "deaf" but not "Deaf" as in "Deaf Culture".

Ah well, glad that's all over and I can stop caring about deaf/Deaf people again.
