TSC: I like to keep this blog about heightism generally instead of the much over-discussed topic of female height requirements or height in dating. But my God….I’ve never heard a woman say anything like this before. This is a beautiful critique of height, masculinity, feminism, and dating in our society. Bravo..
TSC: Just saw this in my inbox. I corrected a few spelling errors (and left one), but that’s it. Thanks for writing in.
I think the article is completely irrelevant as it’s just another tall person showing his jealousy or super ego inflate over his dislike for short people and although statistics were done to try and prove the editors point, generalization is not particularly fed into the argument along with the view that women generally have quite bias views and have been media manipulated into thinking that short guys are bad, have small penis, are paranoid, less fit or whatever. I noticed a few light comments were made but nothing to criticize the fact that Radio 4 was being completely out of order and quite discriminating towards short people which could be quite a large majority of people… Did it not pass their minds that back in the 80’s terms like giraffe, lanky leg, giant, freaks of nature and other derogative words were used against tall people? and that it was statistically written that people who are taller are generally more clumsy, perhaps thicker, walk slower, develop back problems more rapidly and a lot of other things that could mark them down as being not fit for the human race? Its generalization I agree, but these views have never been matched against the slander that tall people tend to write about short people. In my view the research, criticism and other evidence is irrelevant and not valid. Once again the media have been brainwashing rubbish to people who believe it and they need to wake up to the realization that they should be focusing on more important matters in life or talking about literature in a way that doesn’t socially divide the population in so many bias ways.
TSC: DNews discusses the science behind the “Napoleon Complex” myth. Most of it is fair, but they managed to falsely imply that studies which correlate height with slightly higher IQ scores explain the height/wage gap.
TSC: How short Asian men are depicted on American TV. (Sorry about the “heightgrowth” advertisement…the clip is sponsered by a scam website which tricks young men into sending them money in hopes of getting taller. But it’s still a good clip.)
