Frat Investigated Over Hardcore Midget Wrestling

 

Illinois: Northwestern University is investigating whether the local chapter of the Delta Upsilon fraternity broke any rules by hosting a performance by the Half Pint Brawlers, the self-described "only hardcore midget wrestling company."

The Half Pint Brawler website claims that shows involve trash cans, thumb tacks, staple guns and broken bottles. "The midgets bleed what little blood they have for your enjoyment," says the site.

Mary Desler, associate vice president for student affairs and dean of students, said she was not informed until after the show. Fraternities are supposed to report sponsored recruitment activities prior to them taking place.

  How very odd  
 
They have *way* too much spare time, and rather screwed up minds as well by the sounds of it.

  I'm pretty damn offended by this  
 
It's called hardcore LITTLE PERSON wrestling where the LITTLE PEOPLE beat the hell out of each other with trash cans & staple guns for our pure pleasure and enjoyment. Christ, where's the respect =P

  This investigation will no doubt be...  
 
short lived, little satisfaction is guaranteed for those involved.

  Would it matter  
 
if it were 'normal' sized people? If it would, woudln't that mean that there are biased views about what midgets/little people can and cannot do?

Isn't it up to them what they can and cannot do?
I think so!

It's not about what little people can and cannot do. It's about whether it was appropriate for a frat recruitment event. I had a quick look at their website and I'm going to have to go with no. It would still be no if these were regular sizer wrestlers doing the same stuff.
