avoiding-the-word-deaf

Does it pay to mention the word deaf? This is the frustration
Quinn Cruise, a deaf woman faced when she attempted to find
an apartment to rent in Toronto. She sent over 30 emails
querying about an apartment to rent, explaining that she
was deaf. Total responses from landlords – zero! She then
removed the word deaf, and got some responses. Currently
the Toronto Federation of Metro Tenants Associations is
investigating this discrimination issue.
