Little People Call For Ban On “Midget”

Little PeopleLittle People have filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission, calling on them to ban the word “midget” on television.

The controversy was sparked when contestants from “Celebrity Apprentice” created a detergent called “Jesse James and the Midgets,” to which Joan Rivers suggested bathing little people in the detergent and hanging them to dry.

The little people claim that the word “midget” is objective, discriminative, and offensive in the same way as racial slurs.

What are your opinions on this delicate matter?

Is the word “midget” disrespectful and offensive or is it just a harmless term used by people who are uneducated in the correct way to address little people?
