It took me a while to catch up on the week's news about censorship on DeafRead but I didn't think it was going to happen to me. Of course, it happen to happen to my most important post. Last night, when I made the Deaf Sister post, I wanted lots of people to comment, get the most exposure out there because i know and understand that not a lot of deaf, even hearing people don't understand about Muslims and Islam. So i put the video out there as my way of saying "hey, it's okay to ask questions, I will do my best to answer them, go ahead." My blog post was accepted onto DeafRead at 1:06am according to my aggregator.
I woke up this morning feeling great that I had made that post. It was a semi-accomplishment for me. Anyway, I checked YouTube first to react to the comments, all positive, yay! Then I checked DeafRead to see how many people from DeafRead went to the post here since I had seen it had been posted. It had been taken off the site.
Why censor something so important that I'm giving information to other deaf who don't really know about Muslims, just like their hearing counterparts? I'm trying to help the community. Isn't that what we are all here for?
