5'11" is alright, but below that is sorta freakish. it's supposed to be a relationship, not a circus. just keepin' it real. your race analogy is weak, kirps.
A) you've just called me freakish because I am less than 5' 11" tall. A physical characteristic which I can't change.
B) A racist hates/discriminates against someone for the color of their skin. A physical characteristic which they can't change.
I'm not saying that wanting to date someone taller than you is akin to being an orderly for Dr. Mengele (sp?) But I am saying that the immediate dismissal of someone solely for their height isn't totally innocent either. And we all do things like that, I just want it to bear consideration.
get over it & stop whining like a short lil stump! no matter what you say, there are women who actually prefer shorter men. just b/c you haven't found them yet, doesn't mean that those of us that don't want you are bigots.
hell, there are men who don't want me, but i don't label them as bigots to make myself feel better, they just aren't attracted to me.
& some women just ARE NOT attracted to short guys.
best answer I've heard, a little snarky perhaps, but best framed. To be fair though the reason I use "height bigot" is 1) because I like the way it sounds, 2) because a whole class of people have been discounted, not just me, and 3) to provoke response, apologetic, angry or otherwise, and it has definitely worked, so thank you for proving my point.
