LPA Fights Against Dehumanizing Events
LPA fully condemns the "Wolf of Wall Street Velcro Wall Midget Throwing Contests" wherever they occur. We are offended by these events. Along with other disability rights organizations, LPA protested and called for the removal of the dwarf tossing scene in "The Wolf of Wall Street", unfortunately without success. The glorification of dwarf tossing would be harmful enough if it only contributed to cultural stigma, but it also holds the potential to motivate serious bodily injury to members of the dwarfism community. We ask that the LPA community continue to raise their voice in opposition to and this event as well as any events in the future that do not show people with dwarfism full dignity and respect.
