The 2023 Game Awards have come and gone, and with them came a wave of reveals and controversy. We talk all about that in detail, pivot to Nintendo’s interesting comments on the Zelda series, and get into a surprisingly detailed convo about oompa loompas!

Nobody is going to hire little people for roles traditionally played by little people because King Little Person Peter Dinklage threw a fit about Snow White.

I'm sorry but "Little People"? RMC I thought better of you to not use such vile exclusionary language. Please don't refer to people with dwarfism with such discriminatory terms.

Would you refer to those in a wheelchair as the "chair people"? How about those with Down Syndrome as the "down people"?

First off, thank you so much for the comment.

Second, I was using 'little people' as I thought that was preferred nomenclature. I just did some more research now and it seems that most sources say 'little person' or 'LP' is a term accepted/preferred by most in the community, as is 'dwarf' or 'person of short stature'.

It doesn't seem like there's one singular term/phrase that all of those in the community prefer, but 'little person' or 'LP' seems to be acceptable. I'm sure you know I would never say anything to intentionally offend, and also know I always aim to be understanding, respectful and inclusive.

I'll continue to do more research on this topic and am totally open to more opinions on the matter. Until I have more information or a better understanding, I'll make sure I speak more clearly on the matter should it come up again. Thank you for bringing this to my attention!

You must have been dropped on your head as a kid and became a "cracked head person" because they refer to themselves as "little people".
