This is just horrible.
These people are just idiots who quite frankly aren't worth the time. Obviously horrible shallow women.
Some of these comments are horrific, saying they wan't all short guys to die.
And saying they think guys under 6foot are useless WTH?
Absurd, to think the amount of short successful men about.
Can't stand Heightists, especially due to being 5 foot 5 myself.
I'm just glad I don't come across any of these awful girls

How about the all the awful men who call tall women "ugly cows", "tall as a moose", "hideous Amazons"?
Are men to be excused for their part in "heightism" because all women are supposed to petite cute little things?

BTW, I'm 5'8" and have been called all of the above. I've even been left standing on a dance floor when the guy decided I was just "too tall to dance with". This stuff works both ways.

They are called the modern day feminist. These are one of the reasons why soo many guys from the western world seek eastern women. These feminist would give you nothing but heartaches and headaches. They go through relationships like changing their socks everyday. Do yourself a favour, try and find an old fashioned girl if you can. Or go to the east and get one. Stay away from feminists(women with high egos). Good luck

ya know... sometimes i wish my gender would just keep their yaps shut about women.... it hurts reading things sometimes...
hating someone based on their height REGARDLESS of their sex is pathetic and sad.... and kinda stupid, and those people are not worth a single second of attention

It does work both ways... I'm 5'1" on a good day... my little sister is 6'0" ... She almost never dated because she was considered by men to be "scary", too tall, and an Amazon at times. I remember her having one boyfriend in high school, then she met a man in college (yes, he was 6'7") and they dated for years. When they broke up, she didn't have another date for 8 years... until, she got back together with her college boyfriend and married him.

I've always dated men well over 6'... that's not because I have a preferance for them though. It's actualy kind of inconvenient to be honest. haha. I think in my entire life I"ve dated 2 guys under 6', none stuck around for longer than a couple of months. I would have dated shorter men, but none ever expressed any interest. Huh.

I was always attracted to brawny men 6'0" around 200 pounds, because the men in my family are all at least that and it was what I was used to.
When I met my husband, it was love at first sight and all these years later he is still very lean at 6'0" 175 pounds. I never looked back. I did date a couple of guys who were about my height 5'7", but they didn't last. They were more or less rebound guys that were a lot of fun and we knew it for what it was. :P  I don't have anything against shorter guys, but I prefer tall, dark and handsome...so shoot me.

So, the little men were insecure. That would be about the time I pat them on their tiny little heads and send them on their way. :yes:

That's a huge height difference! Are you half-sisters or step-sisters? One seldom sees full sisters like that. They say that girls inherit their heights from their dads.

There is one reality with billions of versions.
