LPA has been actively working to get the word taken out of society's vernacular, where it is often used carelessly and without regard to who else it may affect.The proposal by the AMS supports this call and is a model for other entities that use the word “midget” as a designation to consider changing this language.Little People of America (LPA) is aware of and is troubled by the statement made by Cincinnati Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis, referring to The Cleveland Browns Quarterback Johnny Manziel as a “midget" on Monday, December 9th, 2014.The word “midget” was never coined as the official term to identify people with dwarfism, but was created as a label used to refer to people of short stature who were on public display for curiosity and sport.Today, the word “midget” is considered a derogatory slur.As an advocacy organization, our charge is to take the lead in providing accurate and current information to the public when the “m” word is used erroneously, and often carelessly, as a description of a person with dwarfism.
