it really bothers me when people are rude, mean or dismissive to people who have incorrect spelling or grammar. the value of a person’s idea is not based in it’s gramatical correctness. shaming people for spelling things wrong is a form of silencing. it especially silences those who don’t have access to a lot of formal education, those who have learning disabilities and others. i don’t care if people spell shit wrong or not. i want people to speak and express themselves and tell their stories, especially those who are often silenced and ignored. people will be afraid to speak if they know they will be publicly humiliated for making spelling errors. so they might not speak. and that scares the fuck out of me. please stop shaming people over spelling. i think it’s bullshit.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS POST.
