Halfing is another name for a hobbit.

Tbh I get called every short name in the book, as long as it is said without malice I'm cool

[@406205,InOtterWords] can i just call you the otter lady?
[@1161949,mrlopez] of course you can 😁

Tbh I didn't even realise the extent of how offensive midget was until I was around 16 because my friend started gasping everytime I would say it.

Chill girl, you got asthma?

I legit thought it was just a describing word like Giant.

Halfing definitely sounds more offensive. Kinda like half-caste.
