    LOL
    Maveno I totally understand what you are saying. Also I don't want this to be a heavy bring down everyone on the list topic, since this is a light and airy feeling list lol. I guess my wish is that I could see others with what I have in the spotlight for something positive and just in the everyday. I'd love to see an lp anchorman or woman or even an lp Tom Cruise in movies! Trust me there are good actors who happen to be lp, they just have not been given the chance. It is just hard though when your walking down the street or in malls and people shout things out to you or make you feel like you have 3 heads. I do love being an lp and wouldn't want to change it, I just wish people were more respectful of others in the world. P.S I hope he picks Kaaren, she seems like a really sweety!

I am sorry you have such an anomocity towards "the community". I represent myself as well but I also know that I am an lp and at 3'3 in height I stick out like a sore thumb. I have been called mini-me and other names because of what has been on tv. How can I represent myself when some people have not so positive images of me in their minds already?? Like I said, this show is not the worst show I have seen and as boring as it is I will watch next week's episode. I think we have to agree to disagree on this case.
    Don't worry, you haven't upset me in the least. Frustrate is a better word for it. And the animosity I carry is not toward the "community", but the hive mind mentality of those who refer to such "communities". I've been called Mini Me, Oompa Loompa, ect as well, however, I do not blame Vern Troyer or the guys who were in Willy Wonka. Don't you think that any overweight black kids have been called Fat Albert? Or any geeky boys been called ANY of the geek characters from TV and movies? Perhaps even Maveno has been called "Jeff Foxworthy" because of the fact that she is a redneck
    This isn't something specific to short people. Everyone in the whole wide world has probably been made fun of at some point in their lives, and this is no fault of anyones except for the idiots who have nothing better to do then be mean to people.
    If I decide to go and do some raunchy porn or go on a murderous rampage, that is my business and in no way says anything about yourself or any other little people, women, caucasians, pierced chicks, people with green eyes, people with arthritis, girls who are in love with Joel Hodgeson, or any of the other groups of which I could theoreticaly be placed into.
    My choices are my own, and my successes are my own as well. The prize I won at school for my film "Milkwhite" was not a big triumph for lps everywhere. It didn't show the world or my school that lps can make cool movies, just like anyone else. It showed them that I could do that. Me, an individual.
