    If you want to be PC Police about it he isn't since that word is now considered "offensive"...call him a "little person" then since he is 4'8" tall which puts him into that size range and his arms and legs are proportional to those of an average sized person...as opposed to a "dwarf" where his arms and legs would be proportionally shorter than an average person...

    PC police? :rolleyes: He has a congenital kidney disease which stunted his growth. He's not a midget or a dwarf.

    Yes, I am seeing PC Police in effect here either intentionally or unintentionally.

    POV - Big Enough . What is Dwarfism? | PBS

    FAQ

    Read the part about growth hormone deficiency...his FSGS(the kidney problem he developed) caused growth hormone deficiency which stunted his growth leaving him below what is considered by the standards of the Little People of America to be "dwarfism".

    Also look at the part about the term "midget" and consider that he is 4'8" tall, with normally proportioned limbs, who is solely in the field of entertainment- the classic "midget" by the strictest sense of the word.

    Funny, he doesn't seem to have a problem with the word considering the fact that he took part in a documentary movie called "Midgets and Mascots" and has been in multiple bits and segments of shows that call him a "dwarf" or "midget" including his most recent television appearance on "Penn and Teller: Bull Sh!t" where he was alluded to being a "black dwarf" in the skit.

    I'd love to beat the hell out of that little midgit, accurate or not. Something about him just pisses me off.

    Why? His phony smile? His bad excuses for all his problems? His seemingly desperate attempts the last decade for roles and attention?

    How does a person get beat up by Gary Coleman? Was she sleeping or had her back turned or something? I could take him even when I'm drunk and barely able to stand up. :eek:
