I can't imagine a more insulting term than "little people"; that's just wrong on so many levels. At leat midget is more of a technical thing and doesn't sound like something from a fantasy novel.

I agree with #72. Whatever word is used will eventually develop the same negative connotation and have to be replaced with some other generic term.

I'd much rather be a "midget" than a "little person" or "dwarf". Little people always makes me think of leprechauns or children.

At least "midget" doesn't sound twee and cutesy.

The legal height for someone under the height of 4'8'' and over the age of 18 is midget. A dwarf is someone with abnormally small limbs (i.e.-arms and legs) and torso and a regularly sized head. No, the correct term is NOT little people.

My sister is a LITTLE PERSON and it is not offensive neither is the word dwarf. The M word is extremely offensive so obviously you don't know anything.
