Deaf Anti-Cyberbullying Act: Nyle DiMarco and Deaf Survivors

tshirtThe number of Deaf people who lacks anti-cyberbullying that protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, straight people significantly over many years, but some Deaf people are still not in compliance with human dignity—still in denial, hmm? Where is the Act that stops cyberbullying?

Sadly, the anti-cyberbullying and harassment policies that does not comply with human dignity and protect human rights. Deaf community today are given a ranking based on their level of compliance with the awareness and whether policies referenced human rights and expression as a protected class, as stated in the Bill of Rights, known as United States Constitution. Where is the model policy?

What about 4th Amendment in the United States Constitution? The Amendment IV defines, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Plenty of key messages in this amendment that applies to Nyle DiMarco—the right of the people to be secure in their persons….. against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated….”

 The cyberbullying, harassment, intimidation, bullying, prohibits retaliation against Nyle DiMarco and many others who are survivors of cyberbullying including me—shall seek redress under the 4th amendment to have full awareness to have an anti-cyberbullying policy. Cyberbullying must be prohibited: harassment, intimidation—with consequences for a person who cyberbullies or intimidates another, like Nyle and many others and make the policy available to the public among other provisions.

The Deaf community need to make a good role model with “substantially compliant” with the human dignity and contain all key elements–an acknowledgement that interfering with Deaf people who experience mean-spirited cyberbullying that creates a hostile environment that may be based on the protected class of a person, a mandatory knowledge and how anti-cyberbullying policies are publicized with the Deaf community today and tomorrow.

If the American 4th amendment fails to meet with Deaf community’s knowledge out of compliance within the Bill of Rights, then how do we apply for healing and make sure to continue to meet the intent of the standard human dignity? I was one of those people targeted for cyberbullying countless of times.
