Unequal facilities for undersized persons
Active prejudice towards small people
Discrimination against undersized persons exists, tacitly, in the size ranges of clothing, furniture, vehicles, equipment, stairs, and public conveniences. Employment discrimination is overt, and formal height requirements exist for a number of jobs, although tasks could be developed in some occupations for those of lesser height. Undersized persons may be midgets or dwarfs by individual genetic anomaly, or comparatively or relatively small (pygmies, or average east Asians among average Scandinavians for example), or they may be children.
Serious inconvenience to the undersized may exist in hospitals, schools or other facilities of institutional life.
