It make me feel sh*t watchin, how bout u? Re - Austin Powers The Spy....

Now to be honest, I bought the movie for a lot of its humour, esp of Austin…….but, after watching it like for the fifth/sixth time I know feel a bit uncomfortable watching the actor who plays ‘Mini-Mee’………….have any of u lot out there felt the same??

I mean….I think now Im looking at this movie and asking, are they taking the ‘piss’ out of persons like him……..I know they are known as ‘dwarves’, but even when I say that or tink that I feel bad, I feel it’s a terrible ‘label’ for them……ya know?????

My mum says…’But these pple know what they are doing, if they weren’t happy, they wouldn’t be in it’ – and Im well aware some movies may need ‘small’ pple (sorry, sorry, I just hate sayin dwarf, I feel like Im victimisin them ) What with Star Wars, Willy Wonka,,,etc…….but I tink the ‘Mini-Mee’ person was a lot tinier….I dunno, Im sorry, don’t even remember his name

But anyway, I do now, for some reason worry or tink films do take the piss, or misuse these persons……I tink its how I have see what the ‘Mini-Mee’ does/plays as, in his role…..its like, ‘Oh they’re doing that cause of his height’ – it feels awful..

….if I offend anyone here, Im really….really sorry…..

Aw-I know just what you're saying hon-even though it is his choice, and he's making *I hope* a nice amount of money to do it, it makes me uncomfortable too. His name is Verne Troyer

I'll never forget being on a school bus and some kids yelling out and making fun of a 'little person'(I hope it's OK to use this terminology, though some don't care for this either)-it made me so and

And don't worry-it just shows what a wonderfully sensitive and caring person you are {{{{Maddie}}}}
