“CIVIL RIGHTS” GROUP WANTS TO MAKE IT ILLEGAL TO SAY THE WORD “MIDGET” ON TV

A group of activists is petitioning the FCC to ban the use of the word “midget” on broadcast television. The group Little People of America says the term is demeaning to little people. They literally want to make it a crime to use the word “midget.”

We just used the term “midget” in a post this week. Shame on us!

Speaking of demeaning midgets, I’m sure this story is somehow related. More details are coming out about the arrest of Gary Coleman’s wife last week. Shannon Price was booked on domestic battery charges in Utah. Radaronline.com has a clip of Coleman, the pint-sized former child star, complaining about the numerous fights Price started with him. Coleman says Price would not stop “pressuring” him to get her pregnant. (Even though it’s unconfirmed whether the two have ever actually had sex after two years of marriage.)

Meanwhile, Price complains that Coleman “fights like a five-year-old.” According to Price, Coleman’s throws “tantrums” when he fights. She says Coleman’s fighting tactics include “stomping on the floor, throwing things, and banging his own head into the wall.”
