I had always been segregated from people who were different. But look at what is happening in today's society. The younger generations are friends with their classmates who are "different," and even making them prom queens and kings.
I've stood just a smidge over five feet since the seventh grade. And I've felt icky, simply being in the vicinity of tall, slim women for just as long.
