#agbellLies – Truth art by Nancy Rourke

will be posting up different Deaf View/Image Art De’VIA works that expose AG Bell the man and association for what they are – abusers of ASL, Deaf culture, and Deaf people – most especially children

Language bigotry is not cool – especially when it has been channeling innocent parents to run their children down the gauntlet of Oral / Aural only education – whether they call it Oralism, spoken language, speech pathology, Auditory -verbal therapy AVT, Listening and Spoken Language LSL – it matters NOT – they are all over zealous systems that actively exclude and demonize a fully natural and accessible language for Deaf children.

Deep Scar by Nancy Rourke

All the artworks below are by Nancy Rourke – to see more of her works or more info on each of the works below go to: http://www.nancyrourke.com/ or click the unique link below each artwork to get more info on that piece.  (Some of the works are still available for purchase). I will put up other artworks by artists about AG Bell & co. soon.  As you can see the De^ARTivists have been on a might fine truth campaign about the harms and dangers and destruction of language bigotry, language deprivation, and cultural genocide.  Not cool AG Bell and co. not cool at all.  ‘Tis a pity.  To all the artists – thank u and keep signing out those songs of freedom.  Truths must be told. And to our beloved community – if you do not rise up against this oppression today and tomorrow after the Nyle buzz has subsided you are in fact enabling.

(added) Nancy Rourke is a survivor of reign of oralism – AG Bell Assoc. and co. politicizing of an unholy regime of oral / aural only upbringing and anti-ASLism.  Her art also is a visual testimony of other victims and survivors of the 1st and 2nd wave of oralism via AG Bell and Co.
