Names of disabilities should not be on the banned word list for Twitch
Okay so I find it greatly disrespectful that words like spastic hemiplegia, ADHD, and other names of different types of disabilities are banned from being used on Twitch. This is very frustrating for me because I feel like I’m being forced to hide telling people about my conditions and I want to be able to educate people about them if I do end up live-streaming on this platform. This makes it harder for me and other people who have disabilities to be able to advocate for themselves and educate others. Banning them because of the fear that people would use them incorrectly or even fake them is wrong because not all people are going to do that.
I understand if certain mental health terms are banned, but banning every single name of every type of disability is extremely ridiculous and problematic. It basically makes it harder for people who have disabilities like myself to have a voice on this platform.
