BTW, if I train a Chihuahua to herd sheep, it does not become a Border Collie, and if by some act of God my Chihuahua was granted super strength, it does not become a Pit Bull.

Just to make sure everyone understands how things work.

Understand, reallife racists before and after year 1900, said things exactly like the above.

That a small dog cannot 'become' an entirely different, larger type of dog? That a Tiger, is factually stronger than a small toy lap dog?

That is kind of the byproduct. If I wanted to play a halfling or any small species I'd have to artificially limit my Strength to something below average? Or assume that my character has a mixed ancestry (human or dwarven)?
This is really... dubious.

It's not dubious. It's a reasonable limitation based on fundamental physics/body mechanics.

...But it is a fantasy game where anything goes, so I guess it depends on where you personally draw the line at the suspension of disbelief.

Removing racism makes people angry.

What are you even talking about. You make a thread where you magically erase Halflings, double down on it repeatedly, and quote a perfectly simple and logical example, to then reference 1900 era racists.
