Perhaps like this with blinkers on ? Is it any wonder deafhood, and the anti-'audism' supporters lose credibility when challenged on their blatant generalisations, and refusal to respond to other people's observations? Here is one comment they deemed 'not acceptable to print'
"Audism is not preferring hearing to being deaf, it is subjective/relative only, we must be wary of gross generalisation. In the issue of those who are deafened/acquiring profound loss. It is simply a desire for their norm. I must remain sceptical about claims HoH being 'born-again' into deaf culture, it doesn't happen, unless the loss was so severe at day one, they never knew what real hearing was, the lifestyle, background and education is totally at odds with the concept. (It is the same, but counter argument 'Deaf' use to justify culture and just as valid). It's important deafhood 'followers' identify their 'targets' a lot more selectively, so as not to alienate other deaf and HI people."
Clearly the mentioned blog above, prefers to not print or not to answer. Another DeafYou without the vids.... It has ALWAYS been the view of cultural deaf they are some 'sector apart' from anyone else, either with hearing, or with hearing loss, unless some obscure criteria was met. you have to be born into it. We are all deaf, we are not all cultural, we are all individuals, and deafhood is as divisive now as it ever was. Audism is just an USA term with no validity in the UK and unrecognised AS a word. We use 'Discrimination', since, that is, what it is.
