Welcome to Handeyes – this is the new site for People of the Eye as Deaf Read has not honored its word that it would be adding audism (or an alternative term) to guideline #8. Email commitments were sent to People of the Eye re: adding audism up until July 1st and on October 3rd an email commitment said that disability and cultural group would be added to the listing below which would cover ableism and audism/linguicism.
From DeafRead Guideline # 8 http://www.deafread.com/guidelines/
(We will not post anything that is an attack on a specific race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orienation, age or religion. This offense is serious and the offending blog will be promptly considered for removal from DeafRead’s subscription.)
These commitments have NOT been honored so People of the Eye http://blog.deafread.com/pote/ will be closing down and resume blogging at this new site with the request that the entries not be drawn into Deaf Read or Deaf Video.TV due to those venues sanctioning bigotry and aiding persecution by posting entries that attack specific groups.
Again as i have b/vlogged in the past, I truly regret the necessity to boycott DR and DVTV. It breaks my heart. It is a shame. I do continue to wish DR and DVTV all the best.
