I’ve held off talking about this subject for quite sometime, mainly because it’s to do with those good folks on the other side of the pond, but I’m astonished that a person in government would even propose the repealing legislation that protects us people of short stature from being used as human shotputs.
Dwarf-tossing, make no mistake, is despicable in any form, least for the pleasure of idiots who think it is fun or that the little person actually likes it. By giving permission for this type of behaviour, you legitimise it for the idiot on the street who, unable to distinguish entertainment from reality, thinks it’s ok to emulate the idiots they see on the TV who participate.
Not to mention the fact that it’s downright dangerous and degrading to the person being tossed. Would you feel so comfortable tossing or seeing your kid being tossed who was the same height as a dwarf for fun? No, you’d be reported to social services or make sure the tosser landed head first too for such behaviour. Why is it any different from any other group of people that has been exploited in this way down the centuries?
Yes, I feel very very strongly about this and if you do – I’d urge you to sign this petition. Want to know more about why dwarf-tossing is wrong? Read this statement by the Little People of America.
