Silly mid on is offensive to me as a person who struggles with being serious.
I wonder if "point" is offensive to people with amputated index fingers? Or short leg is offensive to those with an amputated shin/born with one leg shorter than the other? Or slips is offensive to clowns who enjoy bananas but are just too darn lazy to throw those annoying peels in the bin?

Surely fine leg is also offensive as it perpetuates unrealistic standards of beauty in society.
