If Pluto is defined as a dwarf planet and thereby not accepted as a full-fledged planet does the same apply to people with dwarfism? Are dwarves not real people? I think we should all give this due thought. The implications are alarming.

They prefer the term "Demi-Humans"

I'm sorry, if we're going to bring logic into this then dwarves are not a subset of humanity. Dwarfism is identified as a shortness in stature arising from any number of medical conditions though often characterised by disproportionate body parts. You do not make a similar distinction between people with an allergy. Onto Pluto; A dwarf planet, poor wording by the IAU I might add; It's barred from the right to be a planet because, as scruffstah said, it has not cleared its orbit thereby failing the last requisite for full-planethood. Yes, I know this. I was making something we call a joke on a site called funnyjunk which just about summarises what I said.

I said dwarves are not a subset of humanity not that dwarves are not humans. They're just plain humans. I made the reference to allergies as they are another medical condition but we do not say people with allergies fall under a subset of humanity. I suggest you read my original comment again.

Never heard of a logic class, perhaps we have a different name for it in Australia. After looking up the definition of "subset" I see now what you mean. I was basing my reply off of my understanding of the word, which was wrong. Thanks for expanding my lexicon.

Well Pluto is a Dwarf Planet because it hasn't "cleared it's neighborhood".

So a dwarf has to 'remove' its neighbours so as to graduate to "person" status?

Actually the Dwarf-Planet Pluto was named after Walt Disney's Pluto the Dog.

A little girl submitted the name for Pluto which she got from her favorite cartoon dog. It was just coincidence that Pluto was also the name of a Roman diety

Her name is Venetia Burney and I have been lied to my whole life. I retract my statement but the truth still is that the name was proposed by an eleven year old girl.

That is correct, it is coincidence that Pluto the dog and Pluto the planet share the same name, but the 11 year-old named the planet after the Greek god of the underworld who was known for his helmet of invisibility. It was her way of describing how the planet was difficult to see.

And I know it isn't a planet before anyone points that out, it is easier to write repeatedly than dwarf-planet.

Actually Hades is well more known now for just being the God of the Underworld, most people now a days don't really care for ancient mythology, but I find it fascinating,

History gets lost with each generation. It mostly gets corrupted by movies based on mythology, and they make a few small mistakes, but those mistakes carry on. E.g. the Kraken wasn't part of Greek mythology, instead it was Scandinavian, but people don't know that.

I think started with the original Clash of the Titans, then later used in God of War, then in the remake of Clash of the Titans.

Christianity also take stories from other cultures and say they are stories of God, but really they have origins set in Greek, Roman, Egypt, Messopotamia and other origins. Especially the story of Jesus which is well known among many Christians but has it's roots set in Egyptian myth but has to do with their Sun god, Horus which then has it's roots set in astronomy.

That was the way the church converted people from mixed cultures. Christianity absorbed the myths and holidays of specific religion in order to convince others to convert. In fact, Christmas is derived from the Nordic Yuletide. If I'm not mistaken, I believe the Christianization of Yuletide was used to convert the Saxons (I could be wrong, but I read it in a history book and not the internet). Not really related to Pluto, but I felt like sharing.

Pluto was the Greek god of the underworld, also known as Hades.

The girl who named it, knew she was naming it after the Greek god, it was a coincidence that Pluto the Dog was drawn the same year.

So the millions of asteroids in the belt between Jupiter and Mars should all be considered Planets? And the millions of celestial bodies in the Kuiper belt? No. For an object to be considered a Planet, it must first clear its orbit of any other objects. Pluto is in a similar orbit to many celestial bodies and hasn't cleared it's orbital path, therefore it isn't a fully fledged Planet.

It's smaller than the moon, it's a solid object WAY past where solid planets should be, and while it does orbit the Sun, its orbit is very different from a normal planet.
