woman: Ok, Lindsey, you're up.Figured this be a good message for Deaf/deaf/hh teens and, even for some adults, to learn by. It's so easy to say these things online. But you'd never say it in person. Would you? And it is good to see that many Deaf people are actually trying to clean themselves up or ensure that these things do not happen. Which is why I forbid attacking commenters using ad hominem in my Haloscan comment. Examples must be set for those before us, especially among the Deaf/deaf/hh teens who could be looking up to us everyday on the blogosphere.
Lindsey: Today I'm going to talk about Patty.
(Note: Patty is the girl in the audience with glasses)
Patty best characteristics?
Stupid and ugly.
Everything she does is ugly.
Watch her eat.
Watch her stuff her face.
Look at her.
Greasy hair and dirty fingernails.
It makes me want to vomit.
Her Dad doesn't work and they have no money.
That's why she wears that nasty pink sweater.
Everyone hates her.
Even her teachers.
And they are supposed to like everyone.
Get a life, Patty.
Thank you. (Lindsey smiles).
If you wouldn't say it in person, why say it online?
Don't write it.
Don't forward it.
Now, I wonder how many people would want to become friends with Lindsey after she said those things publicly on stage.
Would you want to be friends with her?
By the way, I am sending an email to the NCPC about the lack of captioning in that video, too.
