😒 Hearing -
Fuels outdated ideas about the ability to hear

An illustration of Witty showing the phrase 'They used to turn a deaf ear to [ignore] such requests'. The words in brackets are shown as alternatives.

Outdated, hidden or even discriminatory wording pigeonholing people with hearing impairment.

What can you do?

Ask yourself "What would I write if this person had their full hearing capacity?"
