this is how love works, check out more at http://chatty-k-a-t-h-y.tumblr.com/

TSC: This picture (amazingly titled “How Love Works”) is another example of how we are indoctrinated into social norms which marginalize short men.  Why does the short man have his hands up like he is being robbed?  What is this supposed to represent?  Also notice how the tall female is put in the male position in her frame with the short male.  In all of the other frames, the male is positioned on the left and the female on the right.  In the “tall girl + short guy” frame, their roles have been reversed.
This is despicable. 
Edit to add: I just noticed something else.  Notice how the tall woman in the “tall girl + short guy” frame is hyper-sexualized.  All of the other female characters look more like little girls (complete with pig-tails) than grown women.  But the female character in the upper-right panel has feminine looking eyes and painted lips.  
Again…this is despicable.  View high resolution
