i made replies in y3 but they are awaiting moderation – i copied and pasted my replies in the blog entry that inspired the Dear Patti postings – scroll down to the bottom comments after u click the link for my replies. other comments that came in after me are up so im a bit puzzled why the blog entries are Dear Patti…
But Dear Patti can’t reply there???
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH ADDING AUDISM TO THE GUIDELINES?
1. too hard to prove or define or enforce
that can be true at times for attacks on race, gender, sexual orientation etc but still they are listed in the guidelines
2. no real issues with audism in DR lately
that is true for attacks on race, gender, sexual orientation etc (not many attacks based on race, religion etc lately) but still they are listed in the guidelines
3. other blog aggregators etc don’t have audism in their guidelines
not yet. they will soon. wouldnt it be cool if DR / DVTV were the first?
4. im sure there are other reasons im missing but none of them can explain to me why those other groups are listed and Deaf ASL folks and deaf as disability folks or folks with other disabilities are not included too
really im so puzzled about why it is not added and why facts of what transpired are being misrepresented or suppressed (still awaiting approval just as i was awaiting and waiting for audism to be added to the guidelines as i was told it would be) shall i forward that interesting email?
speak now or forever hold your peace or until this ole issue resurfaces again and again until we get it right
why is it right and just and good for those groups to be named and numbered and for Deaf ASL folks and deaf as disabled or other disabled folks not to be equally respected in the DR / DVTV guidelines?
