I've been thinking about what objects are perceived as more valued or
powerful if they are smaller. I've only come up with two: One - the thinness
of those extremely expensive watches that advertise in full page ads in
pricey magazines as the Thinnest Watch in the World. And the other - the
thin-ness in women in our culture - thin women perceived (and presented in
the media) as more desirable - even smarter and more responsible - than
larger women.
