Seriously, the tone policing is really offensive. Just, don’t.

How many languages do you know? Picking a language is not like picking something off the floor! And you've just excluded me from your audience! I think you are not being inclusive enough! Finally, I've already told you, nobody intends to hurt your feelings, you are being overly sensitive here. You are nobody's victim. I'm just giving you the practical view of things.

Please, stop. You don’t know me or my life. A language barrier is not the same thing as a body that doesn’t function “normally.”

I don't know you or your life, and this is entirely beyond the point. We are talking about inclusivity here, not about your disability. All I'm saying is that you can't be inclusive enough, but you can sure try. But don't blame the developers that are not making things easier for your kind of disability. I bet they would if they:

  • KNOW about it.
  • Know HOW to handle it.
  • CAN afford handling it.

Even if not for the sake of helping a fellow human being, who wouldn't want the extra traffic? Anyway, I wish you all the best, and I'm sorry if I offended you.
