Representatives and Advocates of protected groups
Over the past year I have seen a number of people popping up who making claims of been representatives and/or advocates of protected groups (to be more precise people with disabilities), on major platforms such as Youtube, Twitter and Twitch. What disturbs me about this is lack of professionalism some of these people exhibit, I hope you do understand that a lot of people do want to private, discrete and above all be treated with respect when it comes to their disability. It does disturb me when I see certain partnered Twitch streamers use other disabled people's conditions and in a few cases their deaths to bully and harass other disabled people.
I would like ask Twitch to add to it's community guidelines that users are not allowed to make public claims of been representatives or advocates of this protected group. I am not saying people cannot claim to be a supporter or activist for disabled people or that a disabled person is an example of what other disabled people may be like. What I am saying is unless you have a legal paper to say you represent another person and/or group and are authorized by that party to speak on their behalf, you should not be making the claim to be a representative or advocate.
Thank you for your time.
