What is the proper term for someone with Dwarfism? If I was a sufferer I would rather be referred to as a midget than a Dwarf. As the OP stated….stop the world😳😳😳

Different conditions.
Dwarves tend to have normal sized heads and bodies but short stumpy arms and legs.
Midgets are proportionally small.
The swimmer Ellie Simmonds has dwarfism. She has a height of 4 feet.
The actor Billy Curtis who was one of the munchkins and played the part of Mordecai in "High Plains Drifter" was a midget. He was 4' 2".
