Tyra Banks Framing and Nyle DiMarco Framing

Tyra Banks assured Nyle that he won because he kicked ass – not because he’s Deaf.

While I understand that phonocentric framing – it’s contrary to Nyle’s own personal framing : He benefit from being Deaf cuz he can read the Photographer’s cues and give what is asked without words… He’s able to abstain from the ANTM contestants’ drama.

I do understand Tyra’s POV.. Marlee Matlin won a Oscar for Children of a Lesser God) and her coworker who was her boyfriend’and a bully – told her she won cuz of pity votes

But still disagree with Tyra’s comments.
Also how do you divorce Nyle the Deaf person from Nyle the ANTM winner?
Btw I don’t have a tv nor did I follow- I just got the info from your Facebook postings! THumbs up
