Dont Call em Midgets

The 6,000 member strong "Little People of America" are demanding that the FCC add the word “midget” to the list of words that cannot be uttered on broadcast television.

They are apparently all up in arms about a recent Celebrity Apprentice episode that involved Jesse James and a couple of (insert politically correct, non-offensive generic term for a for a person with dwarfism here).

The LPA insists that "midget" is just as offensive to little people as the dreaded "N-Word" is to African Americans.

Seriously? I find that one hard to beleive.

You know if I were someone that was born with Dwarfism, I'd probably take offense to the term "Little People" as well.
