Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude. -Zig Ziglar
Translated for short people: Be a good little shrimp and don't rock the boat and maybe, just maybe, we'll throw you some crumbs.
Maybe . . .
See?! That's the spirit!
RESEARCHER SAYS SHORT PEOPLE ARE PARANOID
According to a study listed in the journal “Psychiatry Research” “Being tall is associated with greater career and relationship success. Height is taken to convey authority and we feel taller when we feel more powerful,” said Daniel Freeman of Britain’s University of Oxford, who led the study.
A Perfect example of a self-deprecating short-statured idiot begging for the favors of some heightist slut. He might as well be one of those idiot reddit.com/r/short posters.

The ultimate dirtbag. Write an equivalent song about any other group and face social ostracism, loss of income and death threats.
The 'Big' Two
Alfred Adler Randy Newman
These two men are probably responsible for more prejudice against short people than any other two persons in history. Adler is the "psychologist" who coined the phrase "Napoleon Complex" which the media (and everyone else) has used as a legitimate labeling device for short men. No psychologist or scientist in history has so wantonly labeled an entire group of people without the tiniest bit of scientific or experimental evidence as Adler did in the case of short men. Adler's label was apparently based on nothing more than his own personal bias. Randy Newman, of course, is the singer/songwriter of the infamous song, "Short People", which Newman claimed was a satire about prejudice. Picture Newman's song about "prejudice" targeting people based on race, religion, skin color, sex, sexual orientation, ethnic background, etc. and you begin to understand just how long Newman's career would have lasted after writing such a song. At this point in 2016, things are getting progressively worse for the short-statured as both the media and society in general seem to be on the prowl for a group that can be wantonly targeted, since so many other groups today based on the above traits have representation and political power. They seemed to have found that target in short people, and particularly Short men.

Why tall people are BETTER at sport: Height gives an advantage when guessing distances, say scientists,dailymail.co.uk
I wonder if they're better gymnasts or jockeys or platform divers or fencers or skiiers? This is just another trash article coming from London as usual. Dailymail.co.uk is one of the premier male-bashing websites in the World. And of course, as some of us already know, SHORT males are among the easiest to bash.

The one noticeable similarity with almost all serial killer victims is their short height and low weight. "Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue" should be the serial killer theme song. These small lightweight victims are easy to attack, easy to beat up, easy to carry or drag, easy to put in the trunk of a car, and easy to dispose of. Big victims are far too much work.
It's not just serial killers who use short people as targets - It's mostly everyone bigger than they are.
Support For The Short on Twitter
Question: Why do people discriminate against short people and short men in particular?
Answer: to put it very briefly - Because they can. Because they know they meet with no resistance on the part of the short person. Because "they" have all the power and the short-statured are powerless. The short face discrimination based on height all alone without the aid of a group dynamic. Others know this instinctively. The tallers also have a very real physical advantage. An advantage in reach, weight, bone density, and muscle mass, not to mention the fact that you are looking up and they are looking down, and looking up is something that we all did as infants, toddlers, children and adolescents, and this allows them to "get in your face", while at the same time you can never get in theirs. This gives them a psychological advantage as well. Authority figures also tend to question the credibility of the short persons word against that of the Tall or taller person. There is also an age factor that says that the short are child-like. And there's a whole lot more . . .
Should Heightism Exist Alongside Racism and Sexism?
Mal Fletcher on BBC Radio
Short people going too far now according to Fletcher. Should just shut up and not mention their height, otherwise people will just discriminate against them more.
A label originally hung on short men by a "psychologist" named Alfred Adler more than 100 years ago. It had no basis in experimental evidence. It was coined by Adler out of his own personal bias. For decades the phrase remained dormant. Only recently has it begun to take off. The reason for this we believe, is the unavailability of previously available societal "targets" based on race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, and a few others. Some derivations of the so-called "Napoleon Complex" are "Short Man Complex", "Short Man Syndrome", "Napoleon Syndrome", "Little Man Complex", and "Little Man Syndrome". Twitter displays some of the worst height bigots on the planet, and many of them use these phrases along with others. Please visit our Twitter page to see the incredible prejudice against short men.

I'm showing the young man above, the right way to grovel..
We've been exposing heightism against short people since 2006. If you haven't already woken up to the slights, insults, arbitrary indignities, and overall prejudice against people of short stature, you will after you've viewed this website. Heightism is prejudice based on height; almost always directed at people of short stature. Tall people enjoy what we refer to as "Privilege". Now the term "Privilege" has been bandied about in recent years and usually used in reference to alleged privilege based on race. However, tall people of any and all races are paid more money for doing the same work. They are viewed as more competent. They are seen as more intelligent. They are seen as stronger, both physically and mentally. They are viewed as natural leaders. Tall people advance in the workplace more easily. Bullies usually don't choose Targets that are large, they choose targets that are small. The same is true for street criminals. Short men are disparaged, condemned and wished for extinction (just go to Twitter) and tolerate indignities that no recognized group in the second decade of the 21st Century would ever tolerate silently. Authoritarian figures like teachers, police, etc. are more likely to accept the word of a Tall person over that of a short person in an adversarial situation, and short men are literally shut out of the boardroom, the bedroom, and the Diversity and Inclusion agenda proposed by so-called "Egalitarians" and other SJW's definitely does not include short people and short men in particular. We display the articles, videos, etc., that depict heightism against short people (mostly men are targeted). Much of it is blatant and right in-your-face with no apologies or compunction on either the part of the writers or individuals depicted in the articles and/or videos. The media in general actively promotes this agenda, and has been active in promoting heightism (almost always directed at short men) for a long time. This is the same media that supports the rights of all the "other" groups. Some so-called researchers and some so-called "academics" may even come to conclusions that are completely erroneous and scientifically fraudulent, conclusions that they would NEVER come to concerning ANY other group under similar conditions. This website will give you an entirely new perspective on the role your height plays in your life.
Women will only date short men if all the others are murderers, child molesters or psychotics.

"If a tall, muscular man meets a short, skinny man on a trail in a desolate forest, the arrangement of power between the two is pretty clear: the bigger man has more ability to use force, so he can take things from the smaller man, do him in, or whatever he pleases." - Pretty good observation. Too bad the article isn't about heightism.

The purpose of mentioning this man's height is for you the reader to associate heinous acts with short-statured men. The scum who write articles like this do this with malice aforethought. They do it intentionally with the purpose of demonizing short men. Much of this comes from the UK and the city of London. Much man-bashing comes out of trash sites in the UK. On a related note Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump is also known as a "builder". Perhaps their repetition of the word "builder" is to subtly demonize him too.
