Dwarfism Awareness Month, Day 10: "I can't believe they asked that!"
Today's post is a list of questions that I've been asked throughout my life by not just kids, but adults too.
"Hey! Are you Weeman/Peter Dinklage/Sammy/the guy from that show/Willow?"
"Were you like 1cm tall when you were born?"
"Is your penis size the same as a normal persons?"
"Are you not done growing yet?"
"How's it feel like to be short?"
"Can I pick you up?"
"Hey do you know Weeman/Peter Dinklage/Willow/that guy from that show?"
"Can I throw you?"
"Are you a grown-up?"
"Is sex the same?"
"Why do you have a big head?"
"Is everything in your house tiny?"
"Is everyone in your family like you?"
"Are you contagious?"
"Is dwarfism a disease?"
"Are you from that TV show?"
*to my friend* "Can we take a picture with him?"
"How fast can you run?"
*points at anything* "Can you reach that?"
All of these are real questions asked by real people.
Speaking on behalf of myself and others that I know, we don't find all of these offensive. Most are general questions and some are asked out of plain curiosity.
But some are just plain weird and/or stupid.
