In 2005 a bunch of scientists got together and voted that Pluto and Eris (the tenth planet) weren't planets.  They came up with a new classification for them (and other bodies at the edge of our solar system), they now call them "dwarf planets."  My question is: isn't  that like saying "dwarves aren't people, they're to small to be  people?"  Just because they're smaller than other planets means we should discount them as planets?  They aren't stars, asteroids, meteors, or moons, but they aren't planets either.  That seems like bigotry to me.  Scientists are dicks.  Little people are people too, and pluto IS a planet.
