Hi
I watch QI on the Australian ABC.
I was born with a growth deformity that has left me looking like a young child in appearance and size, even though I'm older. It's rather like the case of the late American actress Dana Hill whose stunted growth because of her medical problems caused her to look about 12-13 well into her twenties. Unfortunately for me i look quite a bit younger than 12-13.

When i was a real child i played Marta von Trapp in a Youth Theatre production of the Sound of Music. Still looking like Marta von Trapp thirty something years later is not easy. People keep trying treat me as a living "infant martyr" like Eva St. Clair in Uncle Tom's Cabin - even though I'm not a child and not a saint

Not a saint, but a salad. :P

We've actually had a bit of a discussion about disabilities on the actuality of sexism thread recently because things get out of hand sometimes. I guess you could check it out if you want to offer your views. :)

Welcome, either way! :)

The "Actuality of Sexism" thread is in a forum called What Fresh Hell Is This, by the way - and welcome to the QI forums.
