Subject:  Re: sign for German/Germany

One is signed on the back of the head and the other in the front. But I
am uncomfortable using the sign because of that too. Besides I think we
are just following politically correct ideas instead of natural ASL. No
language uses the other languages term for themselves but the term the
speaking group uses. These new signs do not always make sense like the
ones we are accustomed to. The average person uses the home (American)
signs when referring to another people.
