Description:Everything else -- "little person," "LP," "dwarf," "person with dwarfism," "achon," "hey you," -- falls somewhere in between. Before we started attending LPA meetings, my wife Barbara and I would have guessed that dwarf and "midget" were equally offensive or inoffensive , and that little person, a term with which we were vaguely aware, was probably the most acceptable. It turns out to be a whole lot more complicated than that. Once, at an LPA parents' meeting, I heard an average-size mother say that she nearly burst into tears of rage the first time someone referred to her dwarf child as a "midget". Before her daughter had been born, I couldn't imagine that this mother was any more capable of parsing dwarf and "midget" than we had been. Within the dwarf community, the response to what is sometimes called "the M-word" is visceral; but, obviously, it is also learned.
