I wouldn't called it discrimination.

I'm sure it often happens amongst men, but I doubt that people are doing it consciously.

Being tall myself, I've never experienced it. I do however get tired of people asking "How tall are you?"

Haha Yeah my boyfriend is 5'4 and people think he can't handle himself but he can.

Yes, I know a lot of guys who won't date a girl over 5'5".

I know it does in China.
15 yrs ago - Tuesday 4/24/07 - 11:08:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. I know I practice height discrimination. I don't think I'd date a guy shorter than me.

Yeah, I work at a ride and we don't allow anybody under 44" to ride.

But for real, yes.

Taller males have more prestige than shorter males (up to a point - probably up to about 6'4").

Tall females are often denigrated as potential dates/mates.

The height discrimination is uncounscious, but it's there.

Does it? I don't know...
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 6/27/07 - 1:11:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
My ex husband is over 6'5" and he gets a lot of attention, but no discrimination, that I know of...I think it may happen with shorter people.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 6/27/07 - 8:45:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
i'm 4'11" and people give me sh*t about it all the time. "awwww, you're so cute and little!" or "how tall ARE you?"

it's really annoying. people seem to underestimate me and come to the conclusion i'm sweet and cuddly or something...

14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 6/27/07 - 8:48:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
not as much as oversensitivity happens

I'm going to disagree with Clash rocker. I actually know a lot of tall girl lovers. I know men, who won't date a girl UNDER 5'5. Men and ladies both love taller from majority.

More than you might think.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 9/30/07 - 12:18:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
lol im 6'3"
and probably done growing, so I havent really had any height discrimination
It is fun to joke about small people's height, especially when they are being a**holes, although almost everyone is shorter than me here...
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 9/30/07 - 1:16:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe for some people, but personally I don't care.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 9/30/07 - 1:38:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
i think people get poked fun of a lot, i wouldnt say it's discrimination though
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 9/30/07 - 7:44:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I think there's more weight discrimination that height.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 10/11/07 - 7:16:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
My husband is 6'7" and we have a horrible time finding pants long enough for him, and he can't fit on the best rides at amusement parks....
Total discrimination!

I've read that each inch translated to a higher salary

14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/6/07 - 4:26:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, unfortunately. I don't feel right dating a man shorter than me. I just like tall men.
