Discussing about bullying in Deaf community is important–can we ignore this invisible problem?

Whispers of Hatred: Death Threats

60656_medium

Death threats do not mean anything for me. The vicious insults name-calling and attacks directly at me was not only immature, but also totally ineffective. Whoever you are and whatever brought out that hatred, you accomplished nothing whatsoever by that behavior but to portray yourself in an extremely ugly light.

Those who want my life ended are selfish and mean-spirited. Or Bizarro world, you know, in the Bizarro world in “Htrae” (“Earth” spelled backwards), do you not agree that the society is ruled by the Bizarro Code which states “Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!”

It is all about applying the pressure on Deaf community should be willing to pool some cash for the bragging rights and the bully gets the space ready to rent out. On a side note: Don’t we believe in rehabilitation? Why are Deaf people being plagued with lifelong damnation? In some instances, I am sure that that is a valid, but the hardest part is if there is no process in place to clear up hatred after people are reformed and some time has passed.

It would be much if the society would be more at ease if they studied the issues they are so frightened of and realize that the Deaf community are absolutely harmless. It made me think that the Deaf community is wounded enough and should been organized by human rights that has been trying to get bills that should be more stronger passed in America.

The hearing community who degrades Deaf children should be tested on what they were voting to prior to their vote and then the outcome of the vote like these ill formed laws. Those Deaf children whom you once were survivors and you know when you feel when you were pushed into feeling survivorship by this kind of uniformed chatter.

Panning out death threats is common in my life. I already cheated death five times by four heart attacks, and a gun pointing at my face. Keep going.

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.

Stop the Viral Hate: Targeting Nyle DiMarco

482229694

Almost everyone will agree that cyberbullying refers to the situation people describe and support Nyle DiMarco in every aspect of a human form. “The cat is on the mat”—referring to someone who cyberbullies someone else who is in which a cat is on the mat. It is important that the community accountability must be shared, but the people are reluctant to draw the consequences one would expect them to draw when cyberbullying follows a phrase like “believes” or “sees”. For consider this sequence of cyberbullying propositions:

One believes that the cat is on the mat.

The cat is Tabby.

One believes that Tabby is on the mat.

Suppose the cyberbullying is allowed against Nyle DiMarco just because whether he is gay or not—what do you call it? Speak out. Applaud positive messages. Talk to others about what you’ve seen. Recognition of bias. Community accountability is a shared responsibility. Speak out consistently and forcefully–against hate and bigotry. Now imagine that Nyle had already experienced plenty of subsequent cyberbullying—in Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, the language is clear that they do not allow him to break free of civilization, bound to their rules, must suffer oppression or die.

I believe community accountability and bring out awareness is in order. Will Nyle ever feel safe—-it is more than just hostile—more like, well, you know. I myself experienced as a subject of a rumormongering mill and cyberbullying countless of times.

There is a book sitting on my shelf, Viral Hate: Containing its Spread on The Internet written by Abraham H. Foxman and Christopher Wolf in page 135,

Dear Darren,

Thank you for your lovely message, how nice of you to notice that I am Kind, I do try. As for the subjects you wanted to advice on–I’ll do my best but believe me, I’m no oracle. Yes I do believe that there are more than enough crazy people in the world, it always amazes me that people who wouldn’t have been allowed crayons 10 year ago now have access to the Internet, BTW what is your favorite colour crayon? Mine is blue, they taste best. 

I doubt that the world would be better without gays; to be honest they would be a miss to the caring and service professions and don’t even get me started on hair dressing. Less beans would make the world a far worse place in my opinion, I love baked beans on toast and chili just isn’t a chili without kidney beans—so I’ll have to disagree with you there too. I love my tranny, I listen to the BBC Radio 4 during the day for plays and comedies and discussions while I’m working, so I’d miss that a lot. Being gay isn’t really a disability, unless you’re a stud horse or a homophobic bigot, in which case I find that most homophobic bigots hide their latent homosexuality (That means gayness) and attack people who are openly gay so they feel less insecure about themselves, but I don’t need to explain that any further to you, do I?

Thank you for the excellent advice, my page, which has 400,000+ members, with MILLIONS of post views and website hits per month will be deleted immediately; because we wouldn’t want word to get out would we?

Bye for now poppet, take care.
