You should really ask this question on reddit. You’ll need to register in order to post a question. But, I’d say that you should help him foster self-acceptance and the idea that there is nothing wrong with him and it’s O.K. to be short. If you freak out and drag him to the doctor because you are concerned with his height, he will develop emotional problems.
If he doesn’t have a Growth Hormone deficiency and he’s healthy, then don’t press the issue. Either he will get taller or he won’t. If he does get taller, none of this will be an issue. But if he doesn’t get taller, he’s going to remember if you constantly signaled that there is something wrong with being a short man. And he will probably resent you.
This was a really great video. I knew his hypothesis would be totally busted before the video even started. Most women are not shy about publicly shaming short men or saying that short(er) men are socially off limits. It’s an accepted and encouraged social norm. It’s not like males and overweight women (where most guys would lie or refuse to answer if a camera were shoved in their faces when asked “would you date a fat woman”).
Also, did anyone else notice that the ONLY woman who seemed reasonable was the one who we later discovered was standing next to a 5’6” guy “off camera” the whole time?
To be clear, a height requirement in dating is NOT heightism itself. Just like a race requirement in dating isn’t racism. But the widespread application of such a rule and the widespread acceptance of that rule is the product of having been raised in a heightist or racist culture, respectively.
The mother of 14-year-old Lamar Hawkins III, who killed himself in a school bathroom last week, said her son’s senseless death followed fruitless pleas for help from school officials to stop abuse inflicted by other students at Greenwood Lakes Middle School.
TSC: This game is absolutely disgusting. From what I can tell, it exists to convince very young girls that leg-lengthening is a relatively simple and effective procedure. “Check it out, girls….would you like to be taller? Well, play this game and see how easy it can be!”
