This article employs analytic autoethnography to study online events and social media that I participated in as a deaf scholar during the COVID-19 pandemic. With reference to Derrida’s philosophy of deconstruction, this article asserts the existential primacy of writing as a critical subject of inquiry for confronting normative language ideologies about what language is and how and where language is produced, received, understood, and performed.
