The naked truth! CAD-ASC’s “Deafhood” t-shirt: Extremely cool, or extremely offensive?
August 2, 2011
Recently the Canadian Association of the Deaf – Association des Sourds du Canada created several new t-shirts. One of them shows a pirate skull over the word, “Deafhood”. See it here:
At the annual Mayfest event, many young Deaf people called this t-shirt “extremely cool!!!”
Other Deaf people, however, feel the shirt is offensive. They have demanded that we remove it and stop selling it.
What’s your opinion? Is the shirt extremely cool or extremely offensive? Should CAD-ASC stop selling it?
