Shauna Rae is just like any other 22-year-old. She just has a form of dwarfism that makes her appear younger than her actual age.
But like others her age, she enjoys hanging out with friends, drinking, getting tattoos, and more. But unfortunately, many mistake her for a child and shoot her dirty looks whenever she tries to engage in any of these activities.
In a newer episode of I Am Shauna Rae, we see the TLC star shop for adult toys. And of course, she gets looks from others in the shop.
This is where a lot of fans grow frustrated with the series. They just want Shauna to be able to live her life in peace.
The internet just wants Shauna Rae to enjoy activities without getting stares
Shauna’s sister Tara is getting married soon. So far, the series covered many wedding-prep experiences such as bridesmaid dress shopping. And of course, Shauna Rae wants to join in on the bachelorette party activities.
Shauna and her younger sister Rylee went shopping at an adult toy shop. It’s not uncommon for cashiers at adult shops to ask for ID, but many people in the store shot the sisters dirty looks while they shopped.
Fans on the internet weren’t having it. If Shauna was taller, people wouldn’t be giving her odd glances. If you take a look at Twitter, the platform is filled with tweets just like these:
"Mind your damn business!" I love Shauna so much. Let her purchase her sex toys in peace. 🤣 #IAmShaunaRae

Unfortunately, until awareness and education spread, many members of the public will likely keep treating Shauna differently. No one likes to be stared at and many fans really sympathize with the TLC star’s struggle.
The TLC star had an uncomfortable situation at a bar for similar reasons
If you watch even one episode of I Am Shauna Rae, it becomes abundantly clear that Shauna isn’t a child. She has tattoos and talks like anyone else her age. She’s just short.
At 3’10”, there’s a lot that the 22-year-old can’t do — yet. She still can’t drive a car and she does live with her parents, but she dreams of an independent life someday. But in the meantime, she’s making the most of things.
However, the incident at the adult toy store wasn’t the only time Shauna had problems while trying to enjoy bachelorette festivities. On the show, the sisters and some friends go to a bar to celebrate Tara.
The situation quickly takes a turn when other bar patrons start snapping photos of Shauna on their phones. And as sisters sometimes do, Tara and Shauna start to butt heads when Shauna can’t quite reach the bar.
“I’m like, how do you want me to take a drink of an 86 oz bucket with long straws out of it when I can’t even see over the bar?” the TLC star says. “The fact that she’s not understanding that people are staring at me, she’s not understanding that I’m already in an uncomfortable situation and her trying to push me to do more, it just sets me off.”
Do you sympathize with Shauna in these situations? Be sure to let us know in the comments. Tune into new episodes of I Am Shauna Rae on Tuesday nights on TLC.
