Hornswoggle and El Torito.

Does anyone else find it disturbing how two midgets are the source of entertainment for the whole crowd?

or am I just... odd?

I feel like it's not funny. I can't laugh at someone for being a midget. Then again maybe it's entertaining what these two want to do. Just want to know your opinions on this.

Re: Horsnewoggle and El Torito.

they prefer to be called "little people." The word midget is offensive. :P -- No i think its great. I cant remember the last time i saw a little person match in WWE. The best was the Lawler/Doink match at survivor series. They need to do these more often. I dont particularly care for Hornswaggle with 3mb tho.. i like him as the happy/baby face leprechaun much better.

Re: Horsnewoggle and El Torito.

there is actually a such thing called Gay Midget Porn...it's not called Gay Little People Porn, it's Gay Midget Porn...Midget is not offensive

people can say Midget out loud, but they will not drop the N word out loud...there's a difference

Re: Horsnewoggle and El Torito.

For me it's too cringe-worthy to watch.

Re: Horsnewoggle and El Torito.

I have a counter question. if a little person wants to get in the ring and wrestle why should anyone stop them for worries it might hurt someones feelings? They are paid performers. If it's what they love to do, who is anyone to stand in their way.

That being said, of course it's really all in the presentation. IF the announcers try to take it more seriously it doesn't look so much like a "spectacle" But either way, I think it should really be up to the people in the ring. It's their lives and their livelihood.

KANE!!!!

Re: Horsnewoggle and El Torito.

Sorry, didn't know midget was an offensive term.

The only reason it happens (their fight) is for comedy and I don't see what's funny :/

It's up to them and I never said they shouldn't be doing that.

I was just wondering how other people felt about it. I mean me personally, I find it disturbing that too little people are entertaining a crowd of people due to their size.

I wanted to know if others shared my opinion or disagreed.

Just because people say it out loud doesn't mean it's not offensive, if people take offense to it then it's offensive tbh.
