OMG:

Heightism is the only socially acceptable form of discrimination. Its more prevalent and is more severe than racism and sexism, but I can't get anyone to give a shit. For example the gender pay gap doesn't exist: women are just shorter on average so they are affected by the height pay gap.

When is the last time you saw a tv show making fun of someone just because they are black? Just because they are a woman? Never.

But find me one show where the short guy isn't portrayed as a useless stupid comic relief sidekick, or even worse, a fucking creep (because all short guys are creepy, right?). Not to mention the damage done when camera tricks and raised platforms are used to make guys look taller in every movie ever made. Tom Cruise is short, shorter than almost every one of his costars, so why does it look like he's taller than everyone? Heightism

  1. It's far from the only acceptable form of discrimination. Fat people, for instance, aren't even seen as human. And neither are people with Down's syndrome or other severe disabilities. So if your worst problem is being short you've got it pretty easy.

    2. Are you really this dense?
      You are what you love not what loves you.
      If you want to be bitter and blame the world and claim that it hates you because of your "height" go ahead I don't care. There are so many people like you who whine and cry and waste away there chance to become someone because they all pretend to have this magical crutch and pretend they can't do something because of their race, oh their looks, oh their height, oh poor baby ;_;
      The world is what you make it and if you want to pretend the world will reject you because of your height hey it's life man whatever, not like I'm ever going to be interact more than 5 seconds to a person, like you, who is so negative and blind.
      Also you know why I'm right? Because there has been a TON of short people who lived life to the fullest for example Doc Pomus who was maybe only 5 feet but that didn't stop him to become one of the most famous blues singers. He could have been like you and sat in his room and said to himself "Its not me that has a problem with my height, its everyone else" and just sat there did nothing with his life.

  10. As someone who is relatively short 5'8 maybe 5'9 idk. All I can say is there are people who give a shit and people who don't , bUT one thing no girl likes is the smell of desperation/insecurity from a guy who cannot get over the fact he isn't 6 foot tall. All you should do is take care of your body, eat well, excercise and just stop giving a fuck. Nothing dries a chick's vagina faster then a whiny insecure man (short or tall).

  12. I've read so many posts about short guys getting no women and I'm guessing they're all coming from OP.

    Honestly, you sound like one of the most bitter and arrogant people I've ever come across. Seriously. Every single one of your posts makes you sound like a jerk because you put down everyone, call women bitches for dating men who aren't you, and put yourself on a pedestal as this amazing human being who is tormented by being a few inches shorter than average. As a female, I wouldn't date you. Not because of your height, which doesn't matter in the least, but because you sound like a complete dick. Women date other people because they don't constantly get "pissed off" because of their height. When people call you "shorty", it's a joke - learn to brush it off. Just like when tall people are called "beanpole", and people with thin faces are called "horse". It's not a big deal and the only person taking offense is you. Get over it.

  14. Your point about the gender pay gap can only hold true if you can show that tall women earn more than short women and earn as much as tall men.

    I've heard quite a few of my female friends say that they prefer a guy who is taller than them, but is that really discrimination? If so wouldn't "Heightism" just be a smaller sub-set of "Unattractivism" (which is a stupid word but in this context it means prejudice against things not considered socially attractive).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. OP here.

      Its kind of funny. In my original post, did I say anything about being unattractive, or anything to do with dating? I try to raise awareness about heightism, and the shit short people deal with, and almost literally everyone here is saying "wow faggot stop bitching just because you can't get laid". I get laid, i have to try harder and be a better dude than most guys to do it, but whatever. Everyone is ugly is some way.

      Sure, a lot of girls want a taller guy, duh. A lot of girls want a lot of qualities in a guy, who cares.

      I think saying that all my problems are just because "short guys are always unattractive" is discrimination. There is so much more to it than what some bitch thinks of me, and there are plenty of girls who don't really care anyway.

      Seeing as everyone in this thread ignored what I had to say and spewed vitriol in my direction, i think i can classify heightism as discrimination.

  15. As a 7ft white male with two trophy wives, 10 lambos, and 5 houses in the Holley wood hills I can safely say that Heightism doesn't exist.This is because I have worked hard for my money. Want to know how? Just one look at my 5 complete libraries in each of my houses will tell you - I got everything from Plato to quantum physics. Time to educate yourself and stop complaining.

  16. OP, you're missing something somewhat fundamental here.

    A girl who doesn't want to date a short guy isn't engaged in "heightism," any more than, to use an extreme example, a straight guy who doesn't want to date a dude is homophobic. Having romantic preferences - including physical preferences - isn't the same thing as discrimination. Discrimination requires a judgement about character/ability based on purely superficial elements. If I said "you are short, therefore you must be stupid and probably a criminal too," that's heightism. But simply saying "you're short. Eh, short guys aren't really my thing," isn't that. I'm not making assumptions about your ability as a romantic partner, or about your personality/how much I'd enjoy getting to know you. I'm just acknowledging that you're not my type.

    That's why some people in this thread are getting upset with you. There's a difference between bias/preference and discrimination, please learn it.

    1. No, no.

      I'm not missing anything. This isn't about dating! For some girls, my height is a turn off, who gives a fuck? Can we stop talking about that?

      In fact I didn't even want this to be about girls. Everyone else made this about girls. A lot of my issues stem from the way taller guys treat me.

      This post is STILL ignoring everything I've said. I say people treat me shitty because of my height. Which is replied with, essentially, "you are short so you are insecure about your sexuality". Can't you see the discrimination in that?

      Delete
    2. Okay 16a, sorry for misinterpreting you. I've seen a few posts similar to this one about girls not wanting to date short guys, so I got it all mixed up in my head. Let's take dating and sexuality out of the mix entirely then, I'm open to that.

      Now, what's your basis for believing that the way taller guys treat you has anything to do with their height? Is it possible they're just shitty human beings who treat you poorly/condescendingly because they think too much of themselves, and so treat *most* people around them poorly?

      The above question's important - I'm not trying to tell you you're wrong, I genuinely want to grasp the context here, which I can only do by challenging your assertions. I happen to be reasonably tall (just over 6 feet), and have never given a flying fuck about the height of anybody else I talk to, so as an idea this post caught me off guard.

      Delete
    3. thanks man

      To be honest, its not even tall guys that are the problem. Mostly, they seem to be happier in general (a byproduct of the way they are treated), and happier people tend to not be assholes. Some of my best friends are tall guys, because I'm pretty happy with my life too (though, you know, pissed about the way people view my height) and happy people gravitate towards eachother.

      I've had multiple average height guys ("taller", to me) say, to my face, things along the lines of "damn, good thing you're short". Because according to them, I'm successful at so many things that its life's way of balancing things out so I don't wind up being some sort of superhuman. As if its ok that they are failures, because at least they are taller than me.

      They forgot that I was born short, but worked my ass off for everything I've accomplished.

      Like, I didn't have a problem with my height until other people told me there was something wrong with it.

      Delete
    4. So I guess it goes:

      Tall people have it so good they don't even think about height. As much as I hate the word "privilege", people with privilege don't know they've got it until the evidence is presented to them.

      Average height people see the privilege tall people have and it pisses them off. So naturally, they've got to make sure the world knows they are taller than short guys.

    OHHHHHHHHHHHHH WAHHHHHHHHH BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    Life is SOOOOOOOOOOOO unfair MANNNNNNNN.
    People should ALWAYS like you NO MATTER WHAT and accept it who you are no matter what other people like.
    You should protest and hashtag heightism because that will TOTALLY make everyone like you more for NOT being a douche and keep saying "heightism" and NOT pretend it's a problem that everyone feels and NOT something that only you feel because you are insecure. OH wait you aren't insecure right? You had "girlfriends" and "worked you ass off" so that means you are not insecure but when someone mentions your height you just become less secure (which is totally not being insecure for all THE RETARD responding to this thread) and feel sad about your height.
    Because being less secure when someone mentions your height doesn't mean you are insecure.

  20. Pretty sure the reason people don't like you is because you're a dick. Let's look back at some of the hateful and downright rude things you've spewed in this thread alone (I assume all of this is OP from the vile language and consistent writing style):

    "a fucking creep"
    "This is ignorant as fuck"
    "What the fuck?"
    "Its not me [...] its everyone else."
    "Cant I bitch about something that fucking sucks"
    "your just being an assole."
    "I'm fucking pissed off."
    "You just called 99% of women pieces of shit."
    "date tall retards with no substance. They are like hot girls: all they got is their looks and nothing else."
    "tall guy that gets no pussy"
    "fat bitch that gets no dick"
    "I've fucked some babes"
    "I'm just better than you in every single way"
    "that pisses tall guys off."
    "There is so much more to it than what some bitch thinks of me"
    "who gives a fuck"
    "I'm successful at so many things that its life's way of balancing things out so I don't wind up being some sort of superhuman"

    I know people have made this about short guys having a hard time dating and that's not what this thread is about. But maybe what OP should take from this is that his height isn't the problem - we wouldn't know that he's short over the internet. But we would know he's arrogant and kind of a prick.

    1. This is impressive, all of that are me. Good detective work. Let's examine how shoddy it really is.

      "a fucking creep" - paraphrasing what the media says about short guys

      "This is ignorant as fuck"
      "What the fuck?"

      Swearing. Big deal. I like to use forceful language, kind of have to when no-one takes you seriously.

      "Its not me [...] its everyone else." - ?? What's wrong? Clearly, t is everyone else. Look at the responses in this thread that I had no part in.

      "Cant I bitch about something that fucking sucks" - Can't I? Or do you still have a problem with the swearing? We're all adults here.

      "your just being an assole." - In response to someone telling me to basically shut my fucking mouth.

      "I'm fucking pissed off." - well, I am. Can't you tell?

      "You just called 99% of women pieces of shit." - In response to someone calling girls who dont date short guys pieces of shit.

      "date tall retards with no substance. They are like hot girls: all they got is their looks and nothing else."

      - Truth. Period. I'm friends with tall guys, as much as I love them, sorry, this is true. Attractive person syndrome, don't be so ignorant to deny it.

      "tall guy that gets no pussy"
      "fat bitch that gets no dick"

      - in response to being told I have bad genes

      "I've fucked some babes" - truth. what of it?

      "I'm just better than you in every single way" - truth. what of it?

      "that pisses tall guys off." - it does. it infuriates a lot of tall guys when they see a short dude making it.

      "There is so much more to it than what some bitch thinks of me" - there is, some dude calls girls pieces of shit and I can't call the same ones bitches?

      "who gives a fuck" - not me

      "I'm successful at so many things that its life's way of balancing things out so I don't wind up being some sort of superhuman"

      -I've been told this personally. Having a Napoleon complex forces you to wind up being the best at everything you try just to survive.


      So thanks, go ahead and ignore all the vitriol against me. I must just be some sort of asshole, right? No way, short guys don't have it that bad, right?

      Everyone is an asshole on the internet, get used to it. If I acted this way in real life I'd get pummeled.

      Show me one tall guy who is an arrogant prick and not also somehow respected for no reason.
