i see you are creating blog posts to me personally over in Y3 but when i comment they are awaiting moderation so its a bit hard to have a dialogue
do u want to comment over here or maybe we can vp?
here is my reply to your first blog entry this evening directed at me:
this is my reply to tayler’s response over at
it is awaiting moderation
i want to reiterate aidan’s sentiments – I love you. I truly do. That ain’t gonna change.
However i have emails from you dated July 1st that you would be adding audism to the guidelines (after you requested from me a one sentence definition of audism and after you said you had discussed it with our editors)
you never did – i had checked in with u a few times afterward and no response
i had said – if you have changed ur mind – fine how do i move people of the eye so its not a Deafreadblog (its in my url address etc) no reply
DVTV walk out happened in sept – many folks feel that audism is the root of some of the attacks in DVTV
u vlogged that u hadnt ever gotten any email complaints about audism prior
WHAT – what was all our email exchange in june about?
i email you for clarification – what do you mean audism was never brought to your attention as an issue with the guidelines by anyone prior?
Oct 2 we have a videophone conversation after a few days of emails in which u stated u had consulted with team members etc
in the Oct 2 VP chat i asked for confirmation – you will be adding cultural groups and disability to the DR guideline #8 and you said YES
on oct 3 you confirm via email that you will be revising both guidelines this week
IF DR and DVTV did not recognize other groups such as (race, age, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation) i could understand why you would be reluctant to add the concept of audism to your guidelines
it is not easy to enforce your guidelines in terms of determining what constitutes attacks based on race, age, religion….
but Deaf Read and DVTV have decided that those groups are IMPORTANT ENOUGH AND WORTHY ENOUGH OF JUSTICE
Deaf ASL folks and folks who identify with a disability are IMPORTANT ENOUGH AND WORTHY ENOUGH OF JUSTICE as well
you have offered to transfer all my blog entries and comments over to the new site – thank you. this is what i asked for last july when it became apparent that you were no longer going to add audism as promised despite no replies from you to my inquiries and requests to move over my stuff if u no longer wanted to put Deaf ASL culture and deaf as disability on equal footing as other groups
I do love you with all my heart.
I hate seeing the pain you are in
I hate seeing that i am the source of some of your pain
Many folks said the name and plaque of AG Bell at NTID was no big deal and just leave it alone and move on. ignore it etc
u were one of the people that championed that cause because it WAS and IS important
This is too
much love and peace
