Abstract

Audism is not something that only some people do. Everyone is an audist, even interpreters. Audism is not something that can be labeled and fit into a neat tiny box. There are different forms of audism, but the fact is, any form of oppression of the deaf is a form of Audism. The first step in decreasing audism, is acknowledging that we are Audists.
