Lawmaker Files Bill to Repeal State Ban on Dwarf Tossing in Bars
State Rep. Ritch Workman says ban on tossing in bars limits employment opportunities for little people
How did we get a national controversy over this?
The cringe-inducing activity was outlawed in 1989, when national controversy over dwarf tossing prompted the Legislature to ban it in bars for safety reasons, the Current reports.
While at least one previous lawsuit filed by a little person sought to repeal the law for employment reasons, others including the president of Little People of America are opposed to the new bill. "In general, if HB 4063 does threaten to undo the protection afforded people of short stature against dwarf tossing, we are concerned, and we would be against legislation," said Gary Arnold. "The ban on dwarf tossing protects the entire dwarf community."

Dwarf and midget are sometimes used synonymously. That is because these two terms refer to people that are vertically challenged. However, the terms dwarf and midget are not similar. They are totally different from each other.

The only reason I imagine a dwarf would want to be thrown across a room is for money. When there arn't too many jobs for dwarfs then some may feel forced into it just to satisfy the sick humour of other's. Not exactly what we should accept in a so called civilised society.
