'Midget' is not a racist term! What the fuck is going on here? A friend of mine, in disgust, sent me a link today to an F-Listed site that spoke about this subject:
"Midgets are petitioning the FCC to have the word 'midget' banned from broadcast TV because it is racist against small people."They went on to mention, "The group 'Little People of America' said today the word is just as offensive as racial slurs."

Don't worry, this is going to be a very short post:
WTF? First of all, how in the hell does the word 'midget' relate to race, racist issues and/or racial slurs? Dwarfish beings are not limited to one certain race!
This clearly shows, once again, just how soft and fluffy this country is becoming. It seems that the majority of humanity gets more pussified every day. Anyway, this whole subject isn't even worth discussing, however, I'm starting to wonder what will be next...
So, folks, what's next? In the future, will it no longer be politically correct to call someone obese or overweight? What will the proper terms be, "gravitationally challenged"?
Will it eventually be considered wrong to call someone lazy, slow, or sluggish? What is the proper terms or "condition" that they suffer from then, "agility dysfunction"?
I think ya get the point! ...Sickening and pathetic, ain't it!!!
