People assuming you don’t need leg room
I really feel for my tall sistas in the struggle because those road trips and plane rides can be absolute torture on your limbs. For us short folk, squeezing into small spaces is a way of life. The problem comes in when people assume that just because you’re smaller than average, you don’t need any leg room/ breathing space whatsoever. Short ones, how many times have you been sitting in an already tight space, when someone decides to practically sit on top of you because they assume you don’t require the room it takes for your chest to expand as you breathe in and out? I don’t know about you, but it happens to me all the time, especially on the subway. So disrespectful.
