    FAO Vetran: woke gems

    Originally posted by BBC News
    Marks & Spencer has changed the name of its Midget Gems sweets to avoid offending people with dwarfism after a campaign by a Liverpool academic.

    Dr Erin Pritchard, a lecturer in disability studies at Liverpool Hope University, argued the word midget was a form of hate speech.

    M&S has now rebranded the popular gelatine treats as Mini Gems.
    Vetran and WTFH off you go.

    Disappointed they've not been rebranded them Little People Gems, which would allow them to be both woke, and stick two fingers up to the absurdity of it, at the same time.

      Definition of midget

      1: something (such as an animal) much smaller than usual
      2sometimes offensive : a very small person and especially one of unusually small size
      3: a front-engine, single-seat, open-wheel racing car smaller and of less engine displacement than standard cars of the type

        Isn't "mini" an insult as well?

        For example "You are my mini-me", "Aren't you mini?"....

          A lot of midgets tend to kill themselves. A disproportionate amount, actually.

              you can use sod as an insult but it is used for a clump of grass with soil attached.
