Why do the Little People of America want to keep hardworking Elven-Americans from getting jobs?

They have a lot of little mouths to feed, and stopping them short of working is just wrong.

Shouldn't they concentrate on taking out Peter Jackson? He's the biggest threat little people actors have ever faced.

...and that damn Peter Dinklage gets all the other roles.

On the flip side: there has been no greater friend to little people in Hollywood than George Lucas.
Every movie he's ever made (with the exception of AMERICAN GRAFITTI) has had little people in
prominent roles.

Heck: he even had a bunch of them in THX-1138!

the should just play duck bowling. or at least i think its called that.

This makes me so incredibly angry. To find out that something like this is going on, and I've been missing out all this time.

They should replace trampoline at the Olympics with this sport.

/love to see this in person

I know that the euphemism treadmill says that we should be calling them "little people" now but doesn't anyone else find it degrading to refer to them that way?

It's either that or "Wee Folk".

It does seem a little condescending but they chose the word. I assume they got int heir tiny voting booths and pulled the wee lever and elected "little people".

Your not the only one. If it's how someone would like to be described, then I'll use it.

But personal comfort wise, if there was ever a point where I needed to describe someone by their genetics, I'd rather say "Joe has a form of dwarfism" than say "Joe is a little person"

Maybe they should convince themselves not to take the jobs rather than try to shape employers from not offering such jobs.

People take what they feel are the best opportunities. Joseph Merrick (The Elephant Man) couldn't get a decent job and been living in a workhouse for years when he decided to get out of there by contacting a showman to make him a freak show exhibit. That worked until society turned against freak show exhibits and police would close down his shows. His later stay in a special wing of the hospital where he became a celebrity was, ultimately, a better standard of freak show.

Why did the term "midget" fall out of favor? "Dwarf" sounds much more derogative...and "little person" seems pretty open ended....

That is what I have always wondered. I mean the official term for obesity is not "large people" plus little people sounds way worse than midget and dwarf sounds like the worst option of all.

If it's hurtful now it should have been hurtful in the 70s as well. Or was it not hurtful then because you thought it was funny, and only now that you are no longer amused has it become hurtful?

Individual preference is detrimental to your "identity"?

Check your identity.

Mine rests with me.

What you choose for me is irrelevant.

For I rule me, not you.

You seek money.

And so do I.

We.
