Not too long ago I was witness to some absolutely fucking awful discussions on the internet where a group of people really tried to argue that short people under five and half feet were "child-coded" regardless of their actual age, and that if you were in any way attracted to a short person then you were a pedophile. And I'm getting some of the same vibes from some of the posts here.
Fix the damn Halfling proportions Larian. Make their ratios more similar to adult humans. With the mature faces and the honking great titties on the women there is no chance they could ever possibly resemble a human child, and anyone who tries to argue that clearly doesn't know what a human child looks like.
