"Dwarf Tossing"

NOSSA - National Organization Of Short Statured Adults is disgusted by the recent attempt by Florida State Representative Ritch Workman to legalize "Dwarf Tossing".

Workman has been quoted as stating:
"All that it does is prevent some dwarfs from getting jobs they would be happy to get," Workman said. "In this economy, or any economy, why would we want to prevent people from getting gainful employment?"

1 - HB 4063 condones the cruel objectification of human beings. It clearly sends a message that it is acceptable in our civilized society to treat little people as if they were objects and to have little regard for their safety and well being.

2 - The vast majority of little people are not "happy" to participate in "dwarf tossing". Those folks who do engage in this activity do so because they feel they have limited opportunities to earn an income through conventional means. So why aren't we addressing that???

3 - We at NOSSA ask Mr. Ritch Workman why he would choose to put little people "back to work" in such a horrific activity? Why he would champion a cause such as this? Are there not other avenues he could explore to put little people "back to work"?

Please contact your elected representatives in Florida and express your opposition to this bill. If you do not live in Florida, please contact Workman directly through his website and let him know how you feel.
