The following exchange, reprinted here in its entirety, began with an e-mail to Ebert's Movie Answer Man column. As a writer you are aware of the power of words. The use of the word midget is, for Little People, equated with any other hate word someone might use to describe a minority group. I simply ask you: if you were to see Little People children would you take away their humanity in the same way with the use of such a hate word? I can respect a yes answer but I cannot respect the person who answers yes. I had no idea the word "midget" was considered offensive, and you are the only person who has ever written to me about it.

How isn't anyone talking about how Thalyssra, a nightborne is shorter than Mekkatorque, a gnome? I've always wished those characters were the actual appropriate size, there's no lore reason they should be bigger and it feels lame when you're so small next to your own faction leader. To be fair, for some characters it wouldn't be far off to think they are taller than average. A famed warrior like Turalyon is usually taller than average. On the other hand, some of those are just weird.
