I can't believe they asked that!


Wait, did you really just ask me that?

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.
