    I personally think wrestling is the stupidest thing ever, but if midgets want to do it, why shouldn't they be able to and even have a crowd cheering them on?

    On the other hand, it's not like Hogan invented midget wrestling; it's been around a while.

    I saw the title and thought to myself, "AHA - - finally, a thread about Mister Rogers!".

    Guess I was wrong.

    If an amputee can run a marathon without anything being said, why couldn't he/she wrestle?

    That's not the same thing.

    These people suffer deformities and are being exploited for it...wrong, wrong, wrong.

    Oh come now. 40 or 50 years ago deformed people were still working carnivals to be gawked at by spectators and making room and board for it. THAT was exploitation.

    The Little People would probably not like being characterized as deformed; some of them would be quite cross with you for that. A lot of them choose to be in entertainment industries, using their small size as an advantage, a rarity and novelty factor to earn a better living than they might have otherwise. Others work as professionals in various fields like IT or business or engineering or most anything a normal-size person does... well other than professional basketball.

    You're really making a big ado about nothing.

    It's not the willingness of people to act in these shows that upsets me...it's the audience's appetite for them.

    Midgets are inherently funny, I don't see the problem.
