Today marks the start of National Hate Crime Awareness Week.

Any act of abuse or intimidation verbal or physical is a disability hate crime. For too long the community has simply tolerated this.

Opinion: As a person with dwarfism, I feel safer now that 'midget wrestling' events have been cancelled
We do not put people who use wheelchairs, people who are deaf or blind, or people with learning difficulties on a stage and laugh at them

*** UPDATE – WEDS 12 SEPTEMBER***

In light of new evidence, Chair of RGA UK, Gill Martin said: “We remain resolute in our belief that such events are primarily about encouraging audiences to laugh at people with dwarfism and the spectacle of violence against dwarf bodies as entertainment for average height people.

“We are deeply disappointed to see ‘Dwarfanators’ direct visitors to their website to call people with dwarfism ‘m*dgets’ – which is widely regarded as a highly offensive slur.

“But our most serious concerns are about these shows openly admitting to ‘m*dget tossing’ – a brutal spectacle we believe encourages violence in real life. Studies with people with dwarfism showed 12% experienced physical violence. We believe such shows make the violence and abuse many in our community face more – not less – likely.

“We’re well aware these individuals chose to participate in this spectacle. But their choice sustains an insidious stereotype affecting the rest of us and our ability to choose our own self-image and lead the type of lives we value.

“And as long as these stereotypes affect our community – our families, friends, and children – we will speak out against them, and we strongly urge the UK venues that have booked this act to reconsider.”

Can you help? We've listed most of the venues choosing to host the outdated spectacle of 'dwarf wrestling' (billed by the company as "M*dget wrestling"). We've listed how you can get in touch and hyperlinked to their email, FB, and Twitter. Please let them know how you feel about these horrible events. One venue has dropped out already. We can do this!

RGA UK has learned that the “Extreme Dwarfanators Wrestling Show” – which often bills itself as “m*dget wrestling” – is touring the UK. Responding to the news, Chair of leading dwarfism charity, RGA UK, Gill Martin said:

“Such shows are rarely primarily about genuine athleticism and regulated competition; they’re about making people laugh at the Victorian spectacle of people with dwarfism fighting each other.

“As most average height people meet few, if any, people with dwarfism in real life, such representations matter for they negatively inform people’s perceptions and behaviours towards the rest of our community – limiting our personal choice to shape our own lives and self-image.

“Academic studies with people with dwarfism show 12% had experienced violence and we know of horrific examples of this happening in real life. We’re deeply disappointed to see these venues choose to facilitate the spectacle of violence towards people with dwarfism as entertainment for average height people, and we urge them to reconsider and finally move into the 21st century.”
