(Metro)   Some pipsqueak British politician says discriminating based on height is as bad as racism or homophobia. Well, men of his stature ARE in ... short supply   (metro.co.uk) divider line 167

As a short man, I know I'm not taken seriously. Or it could be I make a lot of jokes.

But women really don't like to date guys shorter than them.

I'm 5' tall. I've only known one dude that was my height that wasn't insane or seriously hot-headed.

As someone who is 6'8" I should mention that most memorable short people are rather surly

I look down on short people.

I mean, I don't have a choice; I'm 6' tall.  And they're short.

As a short guy, I have to admit that many of us do have Napoleon complexes. It's rather unfortunate.

As a tall person, the only problem I have with very short people is I can't hear what they're saying.

It's not our fault he chose to be short.

I'm 5'10" and I'm always impressed when a short guy hits on me. My first thought is he must have a monster cock.

Yes, short guys are rather unfortunate.
I am developing neck problems from having to look down all the time-they get under foot like small children.

I notice he says nothing about the bigotry toward gingers. I guess "Tiny" is ok with that.

I've met maybe one or two short people that weren't assholes.

They walk around
Telling great big lies

I haven't heard about businesses that refuse to serve short people.

Seems like a bit of a reach, but that point is probably over his head.

I'm six feet tall and guys who are 5'4" or under are my very favorites.

Something about masculine little tough guys really turns me on.

my wife is 6'1 and I am 5'2, so I am not sure where I stand on this. However, Us heterosexual (and most gay) short guys know the best thing about being our height...or should I say things.

I'm 5'11" so all I can say is being average sized makes it really easy to find clothes that fit.

Didn't we have a study basically showing that short people are basically discriminated against for management positions?

It's like women getting pissy no man wants to date them because they're fat yet fat women never want to date a fat man.

I set up a hefty friend with a larger friend of mine but she instantly rejected him because he was fat well 6 months later he's dating a skinny girl he met and lost a ton of weight lifting again. Her response? Oh that's why he didn't try, he only likes anorexic women. All I could think was really? You mocked him all night and never gave him a chance.
 
2014-07-06 07:46:03 PM  
I'm 5'6 and it has never bothered me. It also helps that I'm still young, relatively good looking and in shape. Ask me again in 20 years.

There have been many. Salary differences are kind of amazing.

As a tall man I am discriminated against on a near constant basis. The paucity of size 14 shoes, the rarity of Tall shirt sizes means I pay through the nose or go naked. Even Hanes farking pissed me off, they took three inches out of their "big and tall" athletic socks. My thigh is longer than the seat spacing in theaters and airliners. I'd like to drive something more fuel efficient than my chevy 1500 PU, but they lowered the cab height on the S10 from 1999 and 2008. I hopped in that S10 and banged my head on the roof. I almost lost my knee cap when I tried to fit in a Smart car.

And all the tall chicks have short husbands.

Oh, and gravity is a farking asshole when you're tall. Mass is a cube function of scale, but the surface area of my feet only squared. My heels are always a problem, and that's before I play racquetball.

This played out in my head like some slapstick comedy. Just a montage of crappy stuff happening to a tall dude.

I chuckled at it.

Sorry.

We all do. I would tack an inch off of my cock for a foot of height and I would still be two inches bigger than most white guys.

IIRC, it's correlation, not causation. Better nutrition in childhood gives you a couple bonus inches in height and a higher IQ in later life. If you look at the kids getting As in high school and compare them to the kids getting Fs, you'll see the former are noticeably taller on average.

Sorry short dudes; not only are you not attractive, science says you're dumb.

I've dated long term three women over 6'4 and I am only 5'9. I always asked why they didn't date nearer their height but never really got answers.
