I am not a small person – although I am short, I am also quite round. As an Asian American woman, I am expected to be small and thin and quiet and diminutive and submissive. I am none of these things. Yet this expectation is still thrust upon me – and this expectation is not only from the dominant culture – it also comes from the Asian American community. Yet, we know that all people, including Asians and Asian Americans come in all sizes and to discriminate and disparage people who are not the mythic “right size” is an equity issue.
