Why bullying needs to be stopped and put to an end to hatred by increasing awareness of all the forms of bullying in the Deaf communities. It takes some concerted effort to restore the humanity of Deaf people.
October is National Bullying Prevention Month. By feeling disconnected from society, if the bullying dismantles the truth, what do we achieve if the bullying continues to attack the Deaf community rooted in colonized and human struggle remain true? We have a good reason to be aware of problematic gestures in bullying.
The thought of bullying can create PTSD anytime; anywhere is not something that crosses everyone’s mind daily. What the causes and effects of bullying mean and discussed and what kind of actions can we step up and talk about it? Unfortunately, bullying has been a part of the Deaf community;
Bullying often uses the power of being the way because the power cannot be overlooked, neglecting the problem, and refusing to acknowledge the community accountability. When bullying occurs by selecting a victim because of the Deaf status, sexual orientation, nationality, returning/returned/returnee citizens, and more to the list.
It is meant to push for public shaming that is caused by prejudice from behavior that is motivated by anger and hatred. The membership continues to direct bullying against groups of minorities that they choose to be ignorant.
Much like Deaf people would wound up on the wrong side of the bullying issue, and whatever the forces of bullying compel suicide, we must remain to understand that the witch hunts in all forms of bullying do not solve the problem, and where is the social justice of the Deaf who had been bullied? Labels and defining who they are hurts the most.
The root of respect defines in Latin, ‘respectus‘ meaning “regard, a looking at,”–the social media who has a piece of large information about information how to challenge bullying should offer no excuse where Deaf community had been neglected. After all, where is the respect?
