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.
