So
Deeky ONCE AGAIN posts an open thread on Shakesville that has no alt tag
and apparently, at one point, no text desc.


Someone
asks why there isn't an alt-tag or a text desc on the image
.

Melissa
McEwan thinks maybe Deeky forgot, JUST LIKE HE HAS FUCKING FORGOTTEN ON
EVERY OTHER FUCKING OPEN THREAD EVER, and furthermore you uppity cripple,
we shouldn't have to think about the needs of people who can't see images,
you should have to beg us to make things accessible
.

What I find deeply disturbing about this is that it always happens on the
"community building" posts like this -- they are deliberately left with no
alt tags (unless Deeky leaves the default "Photobucket" on there) or with
woefully inadequate text descs that don't actually tell you anything about
the images. Which leads me to conclude that while the people at
Shakesville would LOVE for you to get on board with their activism, they
would like you, the disabled person who cannot access an image for whatever
reason, to fuck off out of their community.

Great. Message received.
