Deafness, Lyrics and Music Videos

View on Tumblr

Amazingly educational post by tumblr user andreashettle; about how deafness covers more than people with zero hearing, and how music can be made more inclusive with the addition of lyrics. It’s actually ridiculous how misrepresented disability is in mainstream media and education, resulting in many people not understanding how blurred the spectrum of ability really is, and what disability really entails, and how to genuinely make a difference to being inclusive. A similar point would be the ability of some wheelchair users to stand or even walk short distances, and how this too is erased in popular media, resulting in public ignorance and assumptions about “lazy” wheelchair users. More on that later.
