Systemic exclusion through the lens of a short person

(If you're also short, you know what I'm talking about.)

It was while I was cooking that I saw through a new lens.


The lens of a Average person.

I'm short for a fully grown adult - under 5 feet. Among other challenges, it means that when I'm cooking, my arm tends to hurt as I'm stirring the pot, since I'm not tall enough to get decent leverage. (Imagine a 10-year-old child cooking on the stove - that's basically me.)
