Okay so in my story one of my MC’s is going to call the other MC “four eyes” as she wears glasses but not in a horrible way just as a playful nickname for her. Buttt would you say that people who read that story and wear glasses would find that offensive or something?
I just want to make sure it won’t upset anyone uno.
But if it helps basically the story is about 3 complete opposites who get put to work together for an assignment and end up becoming best friends.
The three girls are
The athlete- Sami
The mean/popular girl- Violet
The nerd- Amira
So it was going to just end up being Violets nickname for Amira thruout the story
I personally don’t find it that offensive, but the term has the connotation that the person wearing glasses is ‘physically deficient’ and it’s mostly used in a negative manner. I’d honestly find using the insult as the character’s nickname throughout the story to be overkill (unless she literally had four eyes, of which she doesn’t), but I wouldn’t care for it being used once or twice. That’s just my opinion though. 🤷
If you don’t get what I mean, it’s like one character calling another a wimp or scaredy-cat throughout an entire story, at some point the insult goes from being playful (or nasty depending on the tone and intention) to getting old or over-used.
