Banksy mural destroyed by council officials after a complaint that it was ‘racist’
Another case of it’s A-OK to do racist things, but to point out racism is intolerable.

Ah, here it is. The Deaf Awareness Week video that everybody’s been waiting for.

I’ve been running out of inspiration for my YouTube channel lately (which has always been a makeup based channel since I started it) and watching 87daysbefore, chescaleigh, marinashutup, and aconnormanning have inspired me to finally branch out a little bit.

And if I’m going to talk about anything, it may as well be deaf and hard of hearing problems.

I cover a lot of things in one video. I talked about the basics of what deaf, Deaf, and hard of hearing are. I talk about hearing aids and cochlear implants a little bit. Hell, even Switched At Birth (I know, I know) is mentioned. I also bring YouTube into the video.

I’m tempted to make future videos being a little more in depth about every topic since I couldn’t do it in this video otherwise it probably would’ve been an hour long. There’s stuff that I forgot to mention and talk about that I think would be a good thing to talk about in videos later on down the road.

And of course, this is closed captioned ‘cos what kind of hard of hearing person would I be if I didn’t CC it? I’m just hoping mistakes don’t show up out of nowhere since it took so long to save and upload.

Again, I want to thank chescaleigh so, so, so much for helping me spread the word about the video. It means a lot to me. So much, I don’t think you even know.

If any of you reblog this, please accept this big thank you and virtual hug.

By the way, my facial expressions in this are gold.

"(…) And of course, that’s what linguistic discrimination is really about. Maybe it’s not always about class, but it’s never really about language. It’s about the kind of people who speak it."

At Val Systems, Josef Fruehwald blogs about linguisticky stuff. In this piece, he comments on a recent Gawker article and hits the nail squarely on the head re: linguistic discrimination. My fave. (via edithcuth)
