19: Shocking, Is It?
Posted by ridor9th on July 29, 2008
No, I’m not even in rehab. I just had been very busy these days. Plus, there are other things that I have to do than blogging. I know, I know, I know! You guys are so desperate.
Actually, I blogged somewhere else outside of Deaf Blogosphere. It is for me to know and for you to find out. Only 2 or 3 Deaf pals knew where it is.
I was merely following the orders not to blog for more than 30 days to focus on myself. Which I accomplished. I felt much better, motivated and amused… to an extent.
What else is new with Deaf Blogosphere out there? Nothing new, really. The same ole vicious cycle of deaf-bashing upon each other.
Ahh, I see that people like Mike McConnell, Ben Vess, Barry Sewell and Norman Dawson attempted to ambush Ella Mae Lentz, David Eberwein, John Egbert and Barb DiGiovanni by spinning and disparaging the information to make these great people look bad.
The AIM conversation? Please. It was all about semantics, really. And taken out of context. Barry Sewell capitalized on this by using McConnell, Vess and Dawson to spearhead the assault on DBC leaders.
What do I think of this? Tasteless.
And boring. Yes. Boring! The incessant assaults upon the Deafhood leaders from day one is not even appalling nor shocking, it is quite tiresome and boring. In fact, I hadn’t read DeafRead.com in a long time. I had been surfing other means like PerezHilton.com, Rvablogs.com and DrudgeReport.com since my time is quite restricted these days.
DBC already made it clear that they are not against speech. They are against the ideology of *Oralism*. Oralism does *not* permit sign language.
Today, many of you attempted to spin around and say that it is matter of “choice”. To me, that logic is absurd, period. How can it be a matter of choice if the AgBELL do not provide the full resources of deaf-related issues including the use of American Sign Language? That is what the DBC is fighting for.
Now with Sewell, McConnell, Vess and Dawson going at it, it is good thing that I stay away from Deaf Blogosphere and focus on other things for the time being.
Because you guys bore me already! I’m sick of hearing the same things from people like you out there talking about the same things all over again, again and again.
Thank God for Perez Hilton and Matt Drudge!
What The Heck?! Check this link and tell me if you can read what this guy attempts to sign in the first place? I did rewind and watch 4 times and each time, I burst out laughing. I could *not* fucking understand what he was trying to sign! (Where? Starting at 1:37)
How Nice! Two collegiate football players were arrested for stealing beer … at Club 216 in Charlottesville, Virginia last Saturday. Club 216 is gay nightclub. How do I know? I visited there … many, many years ago.
Oops! I forgot to add the link. My bad.
However, yes, I’m back. The countdown resumes. And warning: I’m not the same person you thought you knew the best. Be cautious. Ha.
