I had felt “tokenized” of my physical appearance, when I was young I was short, and could be the shortest of people in the same age,  so every time someone meets me they will think this guy is short. And I love to play basketball, so when I tell people I like playing basketball, they will give a face, that face means that “you are so short, how are you going to play basketball?” I know that but I just can’t do anything because I was short. I hate that when I tell people I love basketball and they seems very surprised, when the first time they see me they believe I won’t be a person who can play basketball, this kind of conclusion is just not fair to me. As I grow up and I am not that short anymore I still feel those people’s attitudes were not fair to a person who likes basketball.
