New York Times Article: Peter Dinklage Was Smart to Say No


This article appeared in the New York Times and stands as an important reminder for people from all walks of life to consider. The unemployment rate in the U.S. for persons of short stature is hovering around 75%. That is a staggering number for able bodied, educated individuals. I encourage all business owners to read this article and hold it in the back of their minds. Little People are as able as anyone to get the job done. The myths that surround employing LPs abound because no one has been told different. Dwarfism is a rare condition, therefore few have had experience with individuals who are LPs and it is understandable why these myths exist. Please visit the “About” page to find out all you never knew about LPs and learn about the untapped assets which are before you.

  1. He’s right, that kind of prejudice is really open. It’s the kind of thing you could write a really long rant about, but for here it’s enough to say that I’m glad he’s using his attention from Game of Thrones to get it out there, and I’m glad he has the conviction to say it during an awards show when all eyes were on him. It must have taken a lot of fortitude to do that.


    1. True. I understand he is not one who wants to be a spokesperson for dwarfism. He wants to be known as all people do, for their accomplishments and for who they are. So it is rare to find quotes or interviews like this. It is a great insight for the average stature person as well as the short stature person.
