Note: Shrinkage is not gender-specific, and it’s not limited to body size.
Anyone who has ever tried to take up as little space as possible with his belongings, for example, knows this shrinkage problem.
Anyone who has shrunken her personality to suit the comfort of others. Each smothered laugh shrinks the space she takes up. Every careful step lessens her sound wave ripples.
Heck, I wonder if hoarding is both defiantly taking up space while crushing the person smaller to minimize the space s/he takes up….
