HEIGHT RESTRICTIONS APPLY:  WHY I HATE SHORT MEN

Why society would be a better place without short men

I hate short men, there I said, in fact I despise them.

snip

Any man who is below 5 ft 8 is quite literally dead to me, do they even deserve to be called men? Or even human beings for that matter? Seeing gnomes walk around thinking they are high and mighty is amusing but eventually the novelty wears thin, It’s like seeing a toddler in daddy’s suit. Short “men” are pretending to be real men, and that just doesn’t measure up with me.

snip

Short men also seem to have some kind of chip on their little shoulders, it’s almost as if they have to overcompensate for being genetic failures, and to see their little bodies being all aggressive and angry is rather comical.

This article is one of the most - if not THE MOST - blatant example of wanton and gratuitous hatred of short men that we have ever seen.  The writer of this article is an openly Gay man, a SHORT openly Gay man, who obviously despises other short men - but we guess that in his mind, he is all right though.  It's all right for him to be short.  It's just not all right for YOU to be short.  According to this guy short men are not "NORMAL".  We imagine that if a NORMAL male spouted such things about Mr. Lee being homosexual, Mr. Lee might have a problem with it.  He might claim something like "homophobia" or some such rot.  It seems that members of some of the so-called "protected groups" seem to freely espouse hatred for groups that they know that they can get away with this sort of thing with.  We must assume that they are the quintessential hypocrites.  The fact that Mr. Lee is short himself, makes his comments seem even more hypocritical.  Many of these members of so-called "protected groups" are getting more and more brazen in their wanton and malicious displays of hate for short people and short men in particular.   Much of this comes out of the UK.  The UK is a hotbed of hatred for not only short men, but some other things as well.  The UK has been going down fast in the last couple of decades and we think we know why, but that's beyond the scope of this website.  This site gets a good number of hits from the UK and the city of LONDON in particular. 




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.  there is also an age factor that says that the short are child-like.  And there's a whole lot more . . .

REMEMBER THE INFAMOUS 20/20 SEGMENT WHERE WOMEN WOULD ONLY DATE SHORT MEN IF ALL THE OTHER MEN WERE MURDERERS AND CHILD MOLESTERS?  (see below)

Well, convicted 6'7" murderer Joran van der Sloot has found love in a Chile prison.  Four years after murdering Stephanie Flores and being named a prime facie suspect in the disappearance of U.S. teen Natalie Holloway in 2005, van der Sloot will be tying the knot with Leidy Figueroa.  As a matter of fact she's already pregnant with his baby!  It seems women will marry Tall men even though they ARE murderers.  Isn't love wonderful!!!  Read the CNN story

Should Heightism Exist Alongside Racism and Sexism?

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.

THIS IS IT.  THE CREME DE LA CREME OF HEIGHTISM - THE INFAMOUS 20/20 SEGMENT WHERE WOMEN PUT SHORT MEN JUST A NOTCH ABOVE MURDERERS, CHILD MOLESTERS AND PSYCHOTICS




LYNN SHERR: I have to tell you, and it breaks my heart to tell you this, it turned out that being short was not good.  Does that surprise anybody?

Let's offer you a hypothetical situation - a different set of facts.  Let's put a lone Black man in the same line up of guys above. Or let's put a lone Hispanic, or Muslim, or Fat man, or bald man, or disabled man, or extraterrestrial man in the line up.  Do you think that these women would have said the same things about them?  Do you think Lynn Sherr would have said the same thing to those men as she said to the short men above?

If you think that, then you're a deluded short man, just like 90+% or so of short men.  I'm sorry, what did you say, I did not hear you? - I have a problem?  Is that what you just said?  Well, you're right.  I do have a problem.  And that problem is YOU.

NAPOLEON COMPLEX:

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.

THE DIRTBAG HIMSELF, RANDY NEWMAN, WITH HIS INFAMOUS SONG, 'SHORT PEOPLE'
 
  



Newman claimed the song was a satire about prejudice, however, it is obvious that if Newman had written this song about virtually any other group of people, his career would have been over almost immediately.  This song, along with Alfred Adler's infamous "Napoleon Complex" label, is responsible for a good deal of the hate directed at short people today in the 21st Century.  A hate that would be tolerated by no other group.

More Heightism Bullsh*t – From Oxford University No Less



BIGOTED RESEARCHER SAYS SHORT PEOPLE ARE PARANOID


Daniel Freeman

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.  He explained that in this experiment, when people’s height was virtually reduced, they felt inferior and this caused them to feel overly mistrustful.  “This all happened in a virtual reality (VR) simulation but we know that people behave in VR as they do in real life, “ Freeman added.

No mention of prejudice against the short-statured.  No mention of hatred toward the short (Just read the “Heightism Report”)  It’s “all in the mind” of the short person.  There’s no mention from this “distinguished” researcher about prejudice by society against people who are shorter than average.  In other words, “It’s your fault that you “feel” the way that you do, little man”.  They put the VR goggles on and by George, that’s reality.  We know that people behave and feel in the real world the way they do with the Goggles on.  

This is nothing but a “Rush To Judgment” of The Short-Statured, and from Oxford University no less.  We hate to say it, but if a “study” was done and the same conclusions stated about any other group, and the head researcher made the statements that he made about short people, ABOUT any other group; and we mean ANY OTHER GROUP – he would very likely be on the unemployment lines the very next day.  Organizations representing that group (whatever group it is – racial, ethnic, religious, sex, sexual orientation, etc.) would be making complaints long and loud about prejudice and stereotyping.  However, when it’s short people involved, all bets are off, so-to-speak.  It’s always the short person who is at fault.  It’s always the short person, who has a “complex”,  It’s always the short person who  needs to “change”, and of course “we know that people behave in VR as they do in real life”.

One thing is for sure, and that is that short people and short men in particular must start taking responsibility for the incredible discrimination that is heaped upon them from the ‘Twits of Twitter’ all the way up to the prestigious crème d la crème of Oxford University.  We are at a loss to explain what this so-called “academic” Daniel Freeman was thinking when he made the above statements.  In our opinion Mr. Freeman is no better than the uneducated adolescent imbeciles who make the incredibly hateful and bigoted comments on Twitter – and get away with it – all with the Twitter folks looking the other way.  Mr. Freeman is no different than any Height Bigot off the street.  Of course, he won’t face any consequences for it though.  If Freeman made the same statements based on race, religion, skin color, sex, sexual orientation, or any one of a host of other traits that he said about being short, his career would have been "cut short”.  And that kind of “short” would be a good thing; not only for short people, but for idiots like Daniel Freeman.



BIGOTRY AGAINST SHORT MEN IN COMMERCIALS

Tall Honda Headroom




This is one of the most blatantly heightist commercials that has ever been aired on TV.  And the heightism is depicted without any actual heightist expletives.  This Honda commercial was first aired in 2001.  It is not difficult to see that short men are not a group with even the tiniest bit of political power or even human rights, because if they were, Honda would have been called on the carpet for this 30-second piece of garbage almost immediately.  When the women pulled up alongside the guys, they seemed to have an interest, that is, until they got out of their car and saw their heights.  This commercial degrades short men by depicting them as undesirable for women and actually uses this theme to promote Honda SUV's!  We see the short men driving away afterwards in a state of self-delusion - laughing childishly and acting stupid - just like one of the stereotypes depicting short men to be.  Of course, any stereotype of short men is acceptable - just as long as it's negative.  Could anyone picture a similar commercial depicting a group as undesirable based on race, creed, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, disability, age, or even weight and using that image of undesirability to advance sales of their products?  And if there was such a commercial, could anyone imagine the backlash after it was aired?


Volkswagen Gets Into the Act


Volkswagen picks up where Honda left off.
  You'll notice that it's the guy's short height that is depicted disparagingly, NOT the woman's exceptionally TALL Height.  In other words we're supposed to celebrate when she finds a guy taller than she is.  The short guy can go to hell.  It's not important if he can find someone to date who's shorter than him, it's only important that SHE can find a TALL guy.  Imagine if this commercial negatively depicted ANY other group of individuals.



  - And So Does Ford



Driver:  You know this hybrid has a better fuel economy rating that the Prius V.
Passenger:  Oh really?  Great gas mileage and it looks good.
Driver:  Yeah.  So much better than choosing good looks OR great gas mileage.
Passenger:  It’d be like somebody being Large OR in-charge.
Tiny man standing on conference room table:  And there are 3 ways to do this:
My way, my way, and My way.  Do I make myself clear?!
Passenger in car:  I like ‘And’ better.
Driver:  Yeah.  (While shaking her head in the affirmative)
Commentator:  And IS better.  The 2014 Fusion Hybrid.  Ford gives you hybrid fuel economy and A LOT MORE.


This commercial has 3 races of people:  White, Black and Oriental.  It has men and Women.  It has young and old.  But apparently, judging by the reactions of all to the little old man on the conference room table that among different races, sexes and ages all can agree that a little man in charge is a joke.  They also depict the tiny man on the table’s voice in a very high pitch.  This is to emasculate him.  The commentator’s last few words are very telling:  Ford gives you hybrid fuel economy and A LOT MORE.  One would assume a lot more is good.

It’s all in your mind little man.

Gospel Singing Now Includes Degrading songs about short people




Times sure have changed!!!  Now they sing Gospel about short people having 'no reason to live' (courtesy of Randy Newmans' 'Short People')   Short girl at first ashamed, (short man too) but then they get with it.  Start groovin' to their own degradation. Short man has the privilege of being body-slammed by 300 lb. woman, all in the middle of a religious service!!!  Both walk away like the fools that they are.





AFL CEO Andrew Demetriou laughs on television when told of an incident in which a dwarf performer was allegedly set on fire by a St Kilda player at "Mad Monday" celebrations.






MORE SHORT MAN BASHING, THIS TIME COURTESY OF SOMEONE NAMED STACEY LEVIN.  GETTING ANGRY LITTLE MAN?  REMEMBER:  IF YOU GET ANGRY, THAT ONLY PROVES WHAT A 'LOSER' YOU ARE.   JUST ASK THE GAL IN THE VIDEO.




Remember Alexandra Wallace?  She was the UCLA student, who, back in 2011 made the Youtube video below - 'Asians in the Library'.


For displaying this video she was written up harshly in almost all of the major media in the U.S. and abroad.  According to various sources even a spokesman for UCLA denounced it:  "The comments on there are contrary to the values the university believes in," university spokesman Phil Hampton said.  Miss Wallace was forced to withdraw from the University and even received death threats.  Contrast the above video with the one below from "Comedian" Frances DiLorinzo about "Short men" -



For the first video you get ridiculed from one end of the country to another and around the World, get forced to withdraw from your college, and even receive death threats.  For the second one (as long as it's about short men) you get a whole lot of laughs and get paid good money for doing it.

It's all in your mind little man.  You should just - "Get over it
".

ANOTHER TALL COMEDIAN DISPARAGING SHORT MEN




Imagine if a short guy comedian made the same jokes about fat women . . . And the dumbed-down audience laughs at every word, even though most of it isn't funny.

______________________


And here's another great comedian -




We've listened to several youtube videos from this guy, and even when he's not degrading short men he's not funny.  What's so interesting is that the people laugh at this guy's act even though he's not funny.  Slovenly morbidly-obese TALL MEN it would appear, are held in higher regard than short men - no matter what their accomplishments, be it Tom Cruise, Prince or any other short man.  He just does his act, then probably goes home, dives into some chicken wings, pizza, fried rice, beer, munchies - and who-the-hell knows what else - views some porn, goes to sleep, then by golly he's ready for another day tomorrow.  We'd like to take bets to see if this bum goes the way of other people like John Candy, Chris Farley and Jerry Garcia.

Incidentally, we don't mean to put this clown's name in with real celebrities.  We only meant to show that most folks who get heart attacks at young ages, do it to themselves.  To think that some clueless dumbed-down, self-destructing moron like this can use someone like Tom Cruise as the butt of his jokes is just unbelievable on its face.  What's even more unbelievable is that people actually laugh at this guy's act.  It seems that even a moron is smart enough to know that he can degrade short men and get away with it.  In this case, not just get away with it, but make money off of it.
SERIAL KILLER MYTHS EXPOSED   

BY Pat Brown

The victims of a serial killer all look alike

This myth no doubt materialized when neighborhoods were not interracial or multicultural. Since serial killers tend to kill just around the corner from where they live or where they work, the victims are just local folks. The most important issue for the killer is the ability to get a victim easily and successfully.

snip

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. Smallish men, smallish women, and children are easy for the killer too handle.

Read more . . .


It's not just serial killers that choose small targets; it's street punks, social predators, bullies at work and anyone else who needs an easy target for abuse.  Of course, this isn't viewed as "prejudice" or a "hate crime".

ESQUIRE - THE HEIGHT REPORT

Tall men run faster, jump higher land more jobs, make more money, get more votes, and win more women.  But it's supposed to be a secret.

By Ralph Keyes

snip

Perhaps you remember Randy Newman's song 'Short People' - the one about short people having grubby little fingers and dirty little minds, got to pick 'em up just to say hello, no reason to live, and so on.  By his own testimony, its author meant no offense.  "It's just a joke," Newman explained when the song was released.  "You don't think it'll bother anybody, do?"

snip

"I don't get why people are so offended by it," he said.


Perhaps if Newman had said similar things about Blacks, Hispanics, Chinese, Muslims, Jews, Gays, Lesbians, Women, Bald men, Tall people, fat people, etc. in a song, he'd understand.  Actually we think he already does understand, and did at the time.  Newman's song has probably done more to promote heightism, than anything else in the history of the world with the possible exception of Alfred Adler's labeling short men with his famous "Napoleon Complex".

Heights of Presidents and Presidential Candidates of the United States 
1789
- 1916
 


According to data from Wikipedia (and you can't always trust Wikipedia but we think that whoever updated this listing is correct) we counted 24 U.S. Presidential Elections before 1920 where the height of both/all candidates was known.  We also counted the short man winning 14 out of 24 times.  That's over 58% of the national elections won by the shorter man.  As a matter of fact the shortest U.S. President in history - James Madison - defeated a man almost a foot taller, yet the U.S. media always seems to harping on the fact that the taller man has won 80% of the Presidential Elections in the 20th Century.  They never seem to mention or cover the entire spectrum of elections since the late 18th Century.

Just another example of the extraordinary media bias toward the short man.

How to Pick a Soldier for the Continental Army (No Short Guys Need Apply)   

By Rebecca Onion

Posted Thursday, June 13, 2013, at 11:05 AM

This undated sheet, addressed to a “Col. Jackson,” issues instructions for enlistment of men in the Continental Army. The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, which holds the orders, believes that the addressee was Henry Jackson, who commanded various Massachusetts regiments between 1777 and 1784.

Bucks County Courier March 26, 1975
Mounties Admit to Brainwashing


OTTAWA (UPI) - The Mountie always gets his man - even if it means using brainwashing, lies, deceit and sexism, according to a training manual.

In a 39-page manual used by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police's  training branch in Ottawa, officers are instructed to start questioning with everything that is "legal and right."
But if this fails, "I suggest the rules go out the window and the interrogator must open up his bag of tricks," the manual says.
The manual was brought before the House of commons by an angry lawmaker Tuesday who demanded an investigation, and a copy was obtained by UPI.

Special handling


The booklet advises special handling depending on whether suspects are fat, short . . .

snip

"In this approach we let the subject have a look at hell . . .  "The subject is interrogated at all hours, day or night.  He has been kept in isolation and has had most of his clothes taken away from him.

"He is dressed in a sloppy pair of coveralls.  he does not use his own shoes but instead is given a pair of shoes too large for him so that they slop about.  There are no shoelaces.  He has no belt to hold up his pants.

snip

The manual says being stripped of clothing and denied permission to contact friends or family the suspect "feels completely foresaken and forgotten and is at the lowest depths of despair."

snip

 - "Short physique:  If we think for a moment how many small men have become dictators: Napoleon, Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin.  All were men of relatively small stature.  Think back to your days on the beat.  It was always the little guy who caused the trouble and caused the fight."

Read more . . .

This isn't just brainwashing.  It's profiling of Short men.  Blatant, in-your-face profiling, not like the type of profiling that police departments are often accused of doing with respect to things like race.  This was actually written into the training manual, and if it wasn't for the alleged sexism contained in the manual, would probably still be written into the manual today.  No lawmaker  would demand an investigation if the manual just profiled short men.  That would never happen.  It wouldn't happen in 1975 and it wouldn't happen today.

GET A LOAD OF THIS - EVEN SHORT DOGS ARE NOW BEING LABELLED WITH A
"COMPLEX" --


Small dogs behave badly, like short men: study

December 18, 2013

If there's one thing we're finding now, it's the blanket and extremely biased and unfounded assertion that short men have some sort of innate behavioral disorder.  This is being presented by media more and more.  The title of this article just flatly asserts it, and it's becoming so ludicrous that even small dogs are being targeted as unusually violent.  Just read the above - "a canine equivalent of short man syndrome".  This dog also has a Black face.  Can we imagine what would happen if the title of this article was - "Black dogs behave badly, like Black men".   Ditto for any other group.  There aren't even any crime statistics based on height, and the article's title blatantly labels short men.  What the F*** is wrong with short men that they don't say anything about things like this???


Are women not interested in short men?
 
Article advises short men to only chat with short women.  The problem is, some one should tell that to short women. (and Tall men)

The Unknown Discrimination
________________

From 'The Power and Paradox of Physical Attractiveness'

by Gordon L. Patzer 

Height plays a serious role as a body component within physical attractiveness phenomenon with shorter and taller heights typically assoicated correspondingly with lower and higher physical attractiveness.  Despite occasional divergences where extreme tallness is a detriment, shorter than average males of all ages seem most negatively affected by this body component while taller than average males are most positively affected through an unchallenged discrimination based on height.

snip

John Kenneth Galbraith, a highly esteemed economist who stood 6'8" tall, expressed well the bias in favor of tallness when quoted in the Christian Science Monitor as saying that height is one of society's "most blatant and forgiven prejudices."  

snip

All cultures have a subtle and even not-so-subtle predisposition against shorter people in favor of taller people, especially for males.

snip

Whether American press shapes or reflects society, it plays a notable role in attitudes about height.  A content analysis performed outside of exacting scientific procedure investigated whether the press deals withj individuals differently as a function of their height.  Results of this content analysis documented that descriptive writings by the press predominantly treat males and females most favorably when they are taller as opposed to shorter.


It's all in your mind little man.  You should just "Get over it".


THE WANTON LABELING OF SHORT GUYS


Two kids boxing a 3-round informal match with boxing gloves on.  But somehow, some way, the shorter kid must have  "Little Man Syndrome" judging from the titile given to the video.  Tall kid just natural and wonderful.  No "Syndrome" there!!!



A short man on a shooting range.  Proof positive that he has "Short man syndrome" acording to the title of this one.  I guess when a short guy goes to a pistol range it's to "prove something" or because he's hyper-aggressive.  Tall men on a shooting range are just fine apparently.  They just go there to practice their shooting skills for self-defense against those little Napoleons.

If you look at the above videos there is absolutely nothing in these videos to indicate that either the short boy in the video on the left or the short guy in the video on the right are doing anything that would indicate that they have some sort of "syndrome".  These videos are perfect examples of how people label and profile short boys and short men.  They do it right in your face wantonly and in the two cases above without any evidence at all.  And when the short guy protests, he's told it's "all in his mind".  Wake the F*** Up short guys.


Heightism from India now -
Reasons Why Women Like Tall Men    
Posted by: Anvi Mehta
Published: Saturday, April 19, 2014, 1:04 [IST]


snip

The Caring Quotient - . . . When a tall man hugs a woman he can hold her firm and she can confide in him.

snip

The Secure Feeling - A man who is taller than you definitely makes you feel comfortable and secure to some extent than the one who is short. Tall men resemble masculinity . . .

Personality - It is a common belief that a man with a good personality should have a good height. . . .
  Men with a good height do have a better personality than the ones who are shorter. . . . The attraction towards taller men is mainly because they have a better personality.

Romance - . . .Taller men are supposedly better in bed than the shorter ones. This is also one reason why women like tall men or why women prefer tall men.

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 2014, 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.

THE HARVARD IAT


Here is a list of the current Implicit Association Tests listed on the Project Implicit website:

Gender-Career IAT 
Religion IAT 
Presidents IAT 
Age IAT 
Arab-Muslim IAT
Race IAT   
Asian IAT
Asian American
Gender-Science IAT
Weight IAT
Weapons IAT
Sexuality IAT
Disability IAT
Native IAT
Skin-tone IAT

    
The Height IAT was available on the Harvard.edu website in 2008.  It’s appearance coincided almost exactly with the initial airing of the Documentary – ‘S&M:  Short and Male’.  After a few months it disappeared.  It has not returned as of August 2014; yet all during this time the IAT for ‘Weight’ has been there, even though weight is largely a personal choice.  Gender appears not just once, but twice – ‘Gender-Career’ and ‘Gender-Science’.  It would seem that ‘Race’ appears not just once, but twice – once as ‘Race’ and possibly also as ‘Skin tone’.  Some other IAT’s that have appeared all during this time would be ‘Presidents’, 'Native', 'Arab-Muslim' and 'Asian'.

More Heightism   



This video was so interesting and so instructive that we thought we'd put it on the home page instead of on the Video's page. It's entitled "Tall People". Notice that there are 3 Tallers, consisting of 2 guys and a girl. Notice that the Tallers get fully 2/3's of the time of the video. The short guy, (who's blatantly depicted in the tall folks' segment acting like a jerk) gets to state his case all alone with the infamous and degrading Randy Newman song "Short People" playing in the background and he gets only 1/3 of the time. Notice that the short guy is all alone, no friend and no pretty girl for him.  Notice also that whether it's tall or short talking, there's always something TALL in the background.  And who's participating in his own degradation by taking part in this video?  That's right - A SHORT GUY.  You'd be hard pressed to find 2 proud short men and 1 proud short woman making a video telling Tallers not to harass, discriminate, socially ostracize them, not to get paid more for doing the same work, not to violate their personal zone of space or assault them, and otherwise showing even the smallest semblance of righteous anger.  You'd be even more hard pressed finding a Taller to act like a jerk in some short persons' video for the sake of short people.  The brief clip ends with, "Thanks for a very short minute of your time" - The short people.

It's all in your mind little man. You should just - "Get Over it".

April 5th 2012.  More sh*t going down for the short. This 22 year old man went into a store to purchase beer. He is one year over the legal minimum drinking age. He displayed his ID. The store employees obviously displayed disbelief at both him AND his driver's license.  He got angry and said some naughty words. Who TF wouldn't?   He was not only denied his right to be served, but was arrested as well. All it took to get the police on the scene to make the arrest was a few naughty words spoken by a short man.

Said one mentally underdeveloped poster:

If he were smart he would get this video off of abc news and carry it around with him. Maybe get it sent to his phone or something. Then when this happens in the future show it to the cashier. Is it a pain in the butt for the guy? Yeah, I’m sure it is, but its better than going to jail for doing something that’s not illegal.

Such is the twisted room temperature IQ logic and the indignities directed at, and tolerated by the short man.


(Incidentally, the webmaster posted a comment that was not displayed.  He then posted a SECOND comment; the second comment was not displayed either.  Now he has posted yet a THIRD COMMENT.  And that one is nowhere to be found at this time as well.)

PUTIN ACCUSED OF "SHORT MAN SYNDROME"




No short man on earth is exempt from being labeled on the basis of his height, not even the President of the largest country in the World.  Vladimir Putin rides a 3-wheel Harley Davidson and that proves he's got "a problem" with his height according to this guy.  "He gets on his bike and he's playing like "Mr. Macho Harley" . . . "  according to this guy, even though this guy admits he rides a standard 2-wheel motorcycle himself.  Short men can't even ride a "trike" without annoying some tall guy that thinks his - and only his - ilk has a patent on anything that in any way shape or form conforms to any kind of masculine stereotype.   Short men are not allowed to do anything that can possibly threaten the ego of taller and/or larger men without being called on the carpet for it and wantonly labeled.

This video shows many parallels between hatred of men by feminists and hatred of short people and short men in particular by many women and society in general.  It illustrates how hatred of men is virtually condoned and even celebrated by much of the media,  while hatred of women is condemned.  Although this is a video about the destructiveness of feminism, one segment in it inadvertently depicts people's subtle, seemingly innate bias against short men.  Lesley Stahl, the host of '60 Minutes' is shown a video of a man allegedly involved in the commission of a crime.  She is then shown a line-up of men and is asked to identify one of the men based on her own eye-witness observation of the video.  She reflexively chooses the shortest man in the line-up.  We also viewed the video of the man allegedly committing a crime.  We could instantly see that he was slim and a good deal taller than the man she chose.  The man in the line-up that Stahl chose was neither tall nor slim.  He also had a completely different hairline.  Our interpretation of this is Bias, pure and simple.  We wonder how many short men are falsely accused and convicted of a crime based solely on their height?

Muhammad Ali didn't like a Taller man getting too close





Listen to Angelo Dundee at 1:33:  “ . . . my man’s no midget.  He’s SIX FOUR now, and he uses his height to full advantage.”  He’s 6’4” “now”???  What was Ali, still growing???  Ali was 6’2 ½” or 6’3”.  Just another example of how people make either themselves or their fighter taller than they really are.  At 1:58 Ali and Terrell meet with Howard Cosell standing by.  Between 1:58 and 2:58 you can hear Ali say to Terrell 5 times:  “Back off a me”!  Ali was known to get in the face of virtually everybody he fought in those days before the fight.  This was the only time we ever heard Muhammad Ali say to another fighter before a fight to “Back Off”.  Apparently Ali – like most other tall men – did not like a taller man to get too close to him.  And the reasoning is simple:  He did not like to look up to another man who was taller than he was.  He also did not want others to see Terrell’s height advantage up close.  Now remember that Ali was 6’2 ½” or 6’3”. 

And they accuse short men of a “Napoleon Complex”.

NOSSA SCAM



Scam Artist Matt Campisi

HERE'S THE PROOF OF WHEN NOSSA, THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF SHORT STATURED ADULTS REALLY BEGAN

THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF SHORT STATURED ADULTS - the organization that a then Long Island New York native named Matthew Salvatore Campisi age 36 (DOB 10/11/77) was forced to start on November 14, 2006 after my complaints to state agencies about the website - www.nossaonline.org being fraudulently represented by the same Matthew Campisi as the website of a legitimate incorporated non-profit.  Campisi fraudulently represented the website from September 2005 to November 13, 2006.  In that time Campisi was ingathering money in membership fees and donations under the false representation.  Campisi responded to one of the state agencies that I complained to (The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services) with a multi-page statement containing multiple false statements about me in an apparent attempt to implicate me in his own actions.  Campisi has since been all over the country fleeing from one location to another, and even giving hardcore Pornsite interviews.  Could Campisi be a hardcore Porn performer too?  (Please see the 'NOSSA FILES')

On Friday, May 17, 2013 the famous NOSSA blog (which is still on the Internet)  posted this:

NOSSA Closes It's Doors
NOSSA - National Organization Of Short Statured Adults, Inc. is no longer in operation . . .  We wish everyone who has supported us through the years only the best. Thank you! 


However as of July 20, 2014, The New York State Secretary of State's Office has, The National Organization of Short Statured Adults, Inc. listed as 'ACTIVE'.  The Wikipedia entry for National Organization of Short Statured Adults, also FALSELY has NOSSA listed as an 'Unincorporated Association'.  We suspect that most of the information on the Wikepedia entry for National Organization of Short Statured Adults was placed there by the same two-bit petty con artist named Matthew Salvatore Campisi originally from Babylon New York.



FORMER NOSSA SCAM ARTIST MATT CAMPISI SHOWS US HOW TO PICK UP WOMEN



Lie # 1:   Marital Status – Single  (Campisi is divorced)
Lie # 2:  Bachelor’s Degree  (Campisi has no bachelor's degree)
Lie # 3:  Christian  (Campisi is an apparent atheist.  One quote from his now non-existent blog:      “Religion is a mindf*ck”)
Lie # 4:  Height – 5’6”  (Campisi is 5’5”)
USERNAME:  FYEKMFA – An  acronym that means, ‘F*ck you Ex.  Kiss my F*cking Ass.  (a sly insult apparently directed at Campisi’s wife
or former wife.

This was discovered on pof.com.  Matt Campisi, the sleazy con-artist that fraudulently represented the website – www.nossaonline.org – for over a year (2005-2006) as the alleged incorporated non-profit organization – ‘National Organization of Short Statured Adults, Inc.’, and ingathered money in membership fees and donations under the fraudulent representation, here displays yet another example of misrepresentation and false statements.  This time in a personal ad on pof.com.  The first false statement is that Campisi is a Christian.  He is not.  If you read Campisi’s blog (when it was on the Internet that is), Campisi’s dislike for anything having to do with religion was glaringly apparent.  As a matter of fact Campisi called religion a  “mindf*ck”.  Campisi has since removed it along with his youtube channel, the NOSSA website, the NOSSA youtube channel, and all of his brief, asinine,  and very revealing  videos too.  The second false statement is that Campisi has a Bachelor’s Degree.  He does not.  He has no college degree of any kind.  Of course another false statement on this ad is Campisi’s height.  Campisi usually represents himself as 5’6” when he’s really 5’5”, yet another Tall Tale, and a falsehood that Campisi has been telling for a while.   This pathetic individual who claimed to be a so-called “height activist” actually lies about his own height and makes himself taller than he really is.

Matt Campisi:  One lie after another.


 Below are two posts from the same individual taken from 'Sociological Images'
dated October 2011 --

Being a 5'1" male, I've seen the massive impact of heightism from a very personal level.  I've lost jobs, loans, friendships, and relationships because of my height.  When people look at/encounter me, very little goes through their mind other that reflection on my height.  Every semester there are at least 3-4 students that approach me on the first day of class and ask exactly how tall I am.  There is no aspect of my life that has not been affected by heightism.  I have no problem being shorter, but most other people tend to have a huge problem with my height.  I've even had people, on many occassions, threaten to kill me because they feel so uncomfortable with my height.  My partner and i are planning to start a family and i hope that the child will be female, simply because I truly believe that it is so much easier for a female to be shorter in this society then for a male to be shorter.  I don't want a potential son of mine to have to endure the daily harassment/judgement/ridicule that I have gone through my entire life.  More awareness needs to be made about heightism and its effect on both males and females.

Many people have found it so incredibly offensive that a short man has a successful career, a beautiful partner, etc. that they hurl threats.  At least that is what I have tried to rationalize their behavior as....   It's just as present now in my 30's as it was in high school.  Random people that I pass on the sidewalk give me a nasty look and cuss; "short piece of sh1t", "little f*cker", etc.  If I ever say back, "what's your problem?" their usual response is something aggressive, death threats, etc.  I had a boss once that wasn't pleased with my sales numbers (several careers and years ago).  They were fine/okay numbers but nothing stellar.  He said flat out that if I didn't turn my act around he would beat me senseless behind the building.  He was a big man, physically, but a real jerk.  I just up and left the place and was lucky to find an adjunct position.  From what I understand, there are few protections, legally, for short people.  I think Michigan has a law that it is illegal to discrimnate based on height.  I can't remember though.  Probably the worst part of all this is no one understands.  I've tried to tell friends about the b.s. that goes on, but their response ranges from "get over it shorty" to "just don't let it bother you".  I'm not saying the stuff that happens to me is any worse then say, stuff that happens to other subjigated peoples, but it does suck.  Little People at least have groups and organizations to assist in getting them through.  Women have organizations to at least try to combat the many inequalities out there.  The same is true for many minority groups.  I don't know of a group for men that are around 5' in height.  There just doesn't seem to be any where to turn to or anyone that even tries to understand.  My partner tries to understand, but can't really.  Every day, every action is judged.  Every passerby, every colleague, every student, every instance and every interaction with anyone is based not upon who I am as a person, but moresoe how many inches I stack up to.

Innocuous isn't it?

(The writer of these two posts should have had the highest rated comments but didn't.   The two most highly rated comments about an article written by Geoffrey Arnold of 'The Social Complex' were written by someone (most likely a rabid feminist) railing about male patriarchy and racism, and one by a Tall woman "defending her turf".  It appears that when men begin to bring up issues about ANY kind of discrimination that they may face, the feminists come out 'in force' to play the 'Oppression Olympics'.)

The Superiority Complex of the BIG MAN:

Hey Joe, this is Jeffery Stillwell.  You did manage to be a little more friendly on the phone than you were (garbled), Uh, you got that keyboard warrior thing going on with you I take it, but anyhow, uh, I don’t see any reason why I want to talk to you, but you seem to have a feeling that you want to talk to me, and put me in my place somehow, so I’m willing to let you have that.  If it does something for you, makes you feel better about yourself, I’m mostly here, but I don’t answer my calls if it comes from a private number and I don’t really take calls that I’m not expecting, so, uh, you might want to, uh, touch back with me in a couple of days and after our holiday is over, you can make some suggestions about when is the best time available for you.  But, uh, really, I’m not going to go too far out of my way to, uh, make this something that uh, takes, gets you, uh, a little satisfaction in your life, so, uh, if this works out, fine, if not uh, take care, and I hope you get the help you need.


We invited this man who stands SIX FEET SIX INCHES (according to him) to take part in an interview on this website.  This was the message he left.  (Click here)  This poster has posted under at least two aliases at reddit.com  -

67stillwell’ and ‘PushcartPops


This man identified himself as ‘Jeffery Stillwell’ allegedly from California.   He’s posted hostile comments in reply to the legitimate efforts of the webmaster, so we asked him if he was willing to be interviewed.  What we got was more of the same exaggerated sense of Ultimate Superiority typical of many people of his ilk.  His posts consisted of wanton attacks, attempts at labeling, fabricating false facts, and just run-of-the-mill name-calling to put the webmaster in his place.  Jeffery Stillwell could not do it.   Recently Mr. Jeffery Stillwell has questioned the legitimacy of the webmaster’s recent interview with a well-known rock musician who chose to remain anonymous.  We think it’s pretty sad that a SIX FOOT SIX INCH 285 pound, nearly 50 year old man, has nothing better to with his time than act - more or less – as an impromptu Internet troll and to disparage the meaningful efforts this website is making to expose heightism against Short people.  To think that a man that size and age could engage in the Internet tomfoolery that appears to be the case here is absolutely incredible on its face, and literally speaks to the incredible times that we live in.  (All one has to do is visit the reddit message boards that Jeffery Stillwell seemingly calls home, and read some of his posts.)  To think that this man apparently views the webmaster as such a threat to the ‘Privilege’ he enjoys in society on the basis of his stature may actually be a compliment of sorts – the sick kind of sorts, that is.  And that’s what we believe may be the case here.   However, be that as it may, our offer to Mr. Jeffery Stillwell still stands.  We still offer him an opportunity to be interviewed on this website.  He previously backed-down rather insidiously by exhibiting what can only be described as an all-encompassing sense of superiority.   If he does at last find the courage to be interviewed he may still contact us at:  webmaster@supportfortheshort.org


Be advised:  Folks like this sometimes have a tendency to do a disappearing act along with all of their posts.

Three physical characteristics associated with social dominance include:

Height.
Being tall has a range of social benefits: Taller men demonstrate less sensitivity to cues of dominance in other men (e.g., masculinity), and show less jealousy toward socially and physically dominant rivals than shorter men do. Tall men are also perceived as more dominant than shorter men. Similarly, dominant men also “play larger,” as they are estimated to be taller than less-dominant men.

Caught short
Why do we discriminate against small men?


Once, when wandering around Wimbledon town centre, I passed a church with a sign advertising its Sunday services. ‘People’s Service at 9’, the sign read. ‘Short People’s Service at 10.’ It took me a few moments to realise that ‘short’ referred to the length of the service rather than to the length of the parishioners.

Anyway, short people, and the service they receive, are big news this week. Researchers from Exeter University report that short men are paid less than taller counterparts. (The survey found a similar injustice befalls larger women, but that’s another story.) The researchers took data from 120,000 people and found men under the national average height of 5’9” inches earn around £1500 per year less than the big guys.

HEIGHTISM NOW SOP IN POLITICS (But only against men)



Interviewer: 
So much of what people do is psychologically analyze Putin, so you tell us, what is he like as a man, you've met him many times?

Hillary: 
Well, he's very tough.  He's a very arrogant person to deal with, which I think is a combination of this vision of Russia and (left hand motions up and down) "some fundamental insecurity". . . .

Never before has heightism been so obvious.  Whether it's Donald Trump with his "Little Marco" label, or the more subtle hand gestures of Hillary Clinton, the message is clear:

Not race, not religion, not national origin, not skin color, not sex, not sexual orientation, not weight, not Tall Height, not whether he has hair, not any physical trait out of his control but -

ON A MAN'S HEIGHT SHALL WE JUDGE HIM.

BROADCAST OF APRIL 14, 2016
- Injustice in Georgia
Joe interviews Jose Sanders, a man arrested at a convenience store in 2012 in Georgia attempting to buy beer while being short.  It seems that a rookie stud, in an attempt to get himself a bust, arrested Jose "because I can".  Jose displayed his ID when asked by the convenience store clerk, yet the clerk and the manager contacted the Police claiming that an "underage" youth was attempting to buy beer.  After the police arrived and checked Jose's ID out and found it to be legitimate, the rookie stud decided to arrest Jose on what appears to be a fabricated charge of "Disorderly Conduct".  Jose was forced to spend 3 days in the county jail, before a judge dismissed the case.  Jose was not represented by legal counsel at the hearing.

THE 'NATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF SHORT STATURED ADULTS, INC." IS STILL AN ACTIVE CORPORATION IN NEW YORK STATE!!!

NOSSA, Inc., the scam that we exposed close to 10 years ago, and which WE forced a scam-artist named Matt Campisi to start due to our complaints to the New York State Attorney General's Office for fraudulent representation on the Internet, and which allegedly folded over 3 years ago, is still listed as Active on the New York State Department of State's website.  It is still an active corporation.  The scam-artist that set-up the website - www.nossaonline.org - and fraudulently represented it as a legitimate incorporated non-profit organization for well over a year - Matthew Salvatore Campisi DOB 10/11/77 - has since disappeared into the woodwork, but not after we discovered many unsettling facts about this psychopath.  It seems Campisi (pictured below)



Matthew "Pornstache" Campisi

- has lived in over 15 locations in the last 15 years, in places like New York, Virginia, Florida, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama, and even Alaska.  Campisi has had many PO Box's, and has lived a lifestyle that is beyond his apparent financial means.  In 2008 Campisi did an interview on naughtyamerica.com, a hardcore pornsite under "pornstar interviews" leading us to suspect that Campisi's lifestyle may have been assisted financially by participation in porn films.  In May of 2012 Campisi apparently threatened to kill his own wife (Campisi was owner of more than one gun) down in Yulee, Florida after she apparently caught this lowlife sneaking his girlfriend into their home with their 5 sons there.  We obtained a copy of Rebecca Campisi's Criminal Complaint against Campisi.  Our information also informs us that Campisi made a woman pregnant in Alabama back in 2009, WHILE his own wife was pregnant.  Campisi has since relinquished all legal rights to the child.  This guy (pictured below)



Christopher Allen Hamre - Matt Campisi's dupe for over 8 years


  - one addlepated Christopher Allen Hamre, DOB 9/26/68, originally from San Diego California and now (at last report) habitating in a one-room basement apartment in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, New York (recently painted) was used as a front-man, go-fer, stooge, and all-around dupe by Campisi for over 8 years while Campisi kept any and all monies collected from memberships and donations.  Hamre finally got wise to himself after reading this website, and also after fellow dupes, Brian Peterson, Devon Love-Andrews, Steven Goldsmith, and "Dr." Deborah Burris-Kitchen left NOSSA for greener pastures.  There is no doubt in our minds that Campisi is keeping the name 'National Organization of Short Statured Adults, Inc. as an 'Active Corporation' in New York State to prevent us from trying to appropriate the name and starting the organization again under the same name.  We can expect the allegedly defunct 'National Organization of Short Statured Adults, Inc.' to continue for quite some time while Matthew Campisi figures out how he's going to survive while paying child-support payments.  The dupe Christopher Hamre didn't even know Campisi was married, let alone having 6 kids.  It's so sad that there are actually people in the World this stupid and naive.

Roots of Napoleon complex may be justified: Study finds short men get short end of stick in life

By Ariana Eunjung Cha March 9

snip

What distinguishes this new study, beyond its sheer massive size, is that the researchers were able to disentangle the two questions by focusing on the 396 genetic variants that determine height, as well as participants’ actual height. The study found that if a man was genetically predetermined to be 3 inches shorter than another man, the shorter man would have an annual income that was $1,600 lower. They also found that the taller you are the more likely it is that you are working in a skilled or professional job.

"Genetic analysis provided evidence that these associations were partly causal," the researchers wrote.

What about women?

The study found that height does not have as much of an impact on success for women, but body fat does.

snip

“Does this factor into employment discrimination when they are interviewed for jobs or try to move up the career ladder? Social discrimination when it comes to choosing mates?”

He also said it will be important to look at internally-driven issues, such as low self-esteem and depression.

It's very strange; when other "groups" claim to experience lower success rates, the media - and others - ALWAYS seem to point to discrimination as the cause.  When it's short-stature we're talking about, then "it's important to look at internally-driven issues, such as low self-esteem and depression".

OLDEST LIVING HEIGHT BIGOTED SHORT WOMAN DIES -


108 YEAR OLD ALYCE DIXON, HATER OF SHORT MEN PASSES AWAY

By Breanne Deppisch Washington Post  February 07, 2016

WASHINGTON — Alyce Dixon, the nation’s oldest female veteran, who expedited mail delivery in wartime and later worked as a civilian at the Pentagon, facilitating what she called the purchase of everything from “pencils to airplanes,” died Jan. 27 at a veterans’ retirement center in Washington. She was 108.

SNIP

She was initially limited to administrative assignments in Iowa and Texas before joining the newly established 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion in early 1945. The battalion was the only unit of black women in the WACs to serve overseas in World War II and was led by Charity Adams, one of the first black female commissioned officers in the war.

The Army was still segregated at the time, and Ms. Dixon’s battalion — comprised of more than 800 African-American women and based at posts in England and France — dined and was housed separately from other WACs.

SNIP

    She told the American Forces Press Service that she once wrote a piece called “The Long and Short of It,” published in a military publication, that contrasted her diminutive physique with that of her towering bunkmate’s. When the story reached bases around the world, she began receiving untold numbers of mash notes.

“All the short men wrote me a letter,” she said, adding that many even showed up in person. “I hated short men.”


Read more . . .

The article mentions segregation of Black people in the Armed Forces, something we're all supposed to abhor.  However, the writer of the article has no compunction about stating Ms. Dixon's hatred for short men in a direct quote and doesn't call her on it.  We interpret this as an endorsement of Hatred of Short Men on the part of women by the writer.  And if you look at the photo above you would never know she's Black.  (Did she lighten her skin to appear White? - And if she did, why?  Was she ashamed of being Black?)  But that's a story far beyond the scope of this website.

Open up your eyes.

Women’s UGLY Truth About Men: There’s NO TIME For Short Dudes

By Lincoln Anthony Blades on 03/31/2011@lincolnablades



Because I am a naturally inquisitive person, I like to informally poll people all the time, and for the last couple of weeks I have been asking many women about whether or not they see themselves dating a SHORT man, and the overwhelming majority said NO. But that’s not what was shocking or surprising to me because I have been pretty cognizant of that fact all my life, but the truly HARSH part of the poll is that there is little to NO reconciliatory efforts the short man can make to get BACK in the good, potential-nani-smashing graces of said woman. Forget the friend zone being the end zone, according to WOMEN themselves, the Midget zone is the REALEST end zone in the dating world.

As much as women like to duck and dodge being blunt and honest about not wanting to date a grown-a*s man that couldn’t even start at Small Forward on an 8th grade basketball team, the reality is women ARE vain and superficial enough to prefer a baby-richard having 6’6 dude than an anaconda-slanging 5’3″ dude.

snip


Why is it better for a man to be slightly overweight, slightly underhung, slightly un-pretty in the face and maybe even slightly a*sholeish, is because he will get the chance to still date her and go through these things, while the short man can’t even get the nod from the coach to get off the bench and get some playing time.

The hatred of short men is incredible.

TALL MAN'S SUPERIORITY COMPLEX INADVERTENTLY ADMITTED BY A PROFESSIONAL PSYCHIATRIST --

My son is now taller than me, and I don't like it
The moment when a son outgrows his father marks a shift in their relationship which is difficult for both parties to deal with, finds Tom Burnham


By Tom Burnham

8:36AM GMT 09 Jan 2015


 It was May 5, 2012. I know this because it’s written on the wall in the kitchen on which my children have etched their heights as they have grown over the years. Next to that date is scrawled “5ft 11¾in” and my eldest son’s name. Just below this is the word “Dad” and “5ft 11½in”.


If you’d asked me any time before that date whether having a child, a son, who was taller than me would be a problem, I’d have laughed and then said no. But ask me now and I might just have to say yes. And I’m not sure why.

There are a few practical problems
that arise when you have a 6ft 3in 16-year-old in the house -


snip

And he has always loved the pioneering role he’s been born into.

snip


Sometimes the “discussions” get a bit heated. He really wants to do these things and really can’t
see why he’s sometimes not allowed. There might be a bit of shouting but (and I would say this, wouldn’t I?) we generally try to explain and he generally doesn’t want to listen.

That’s the set-up. And it changed for me, sometime around May 5, 2012. Maybe, before that, I had height on my side and I subconsciously used it. When you run out of reasons why Call of Duty isn’t suitable for a 10-year-old, you can fall back on “because I say so”, with the subtext being “because I’m bigger and older and wiser than you”.


snip


My son can be aggressive;  [Gee!  I wonder why?!] I’m not, at all. So now, when he wants to go out (again) and we think maybe a night in wouldn’t go amiss, we’re not only having to look up to take part in the debate, we’re reaching for the hard hats as well.

I find it much harder to deal with his stroppiness than my wife does. If he gets going, I get rattled and my ability to reason and explain goes out the window and the “discussion” can deteriorate pretty quickly.

[The advantage of taller height and larger size is pretty obvious.  The father no longer feels like he's "man enough" to stand up to his own son.  Just imagine the indignities faced by Short men in society, when 95+% of the adult population is taller and larger than you are]

snip


And Dr Sebastian Kraemer, a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist, has similar advice on when the child outgrows the parent. “Whether or not they say anything about it, both father and son become conscious of the forthcoming changeover. It can be alarming in that a very angry teenager may suddenly realise that he could kill his father.

There is no "Short man's Complex", but this article seems to be saying, and this psychiatrist seems to be admitting, that taller height and larger size practically guarantee an attitude problem.  I don't think the writer of the article knows what he's actually saying, and probably neither does the so-called psychiatrist.   It appears no attempt was made to label tall young men here with a "Tall man's complex".  The impression is that this teenager's attitude issue is all so "natural".

It's all in your mind little man.  You should just - "Get over it".

OBESE SELF-HATING SHORT WOMAN WON'T TAKE ANYTHING LESS THAN A 7'3" MAN.  SHE DOESN'T WANT HER CHILDREN TO BE LIKE HER.



IT'S SO SICKENING AND SO SAD.  SHE CHOOSES HER WEIGHT, BUT IF A GUY MADE A SIMILAR COMMENT ABOUT FAT WOMEN THE WAY SHE DID ABOUT HAVING SHORT CHILDREN, SHE WOULD PROBABLY GET "OFFENDED".  IT'S PERFECTLY ALL RIGHT - IN HER MIND - FOR HER TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST SHORT MEN, BUT YOU BETTER NOT DARE EXPRESS ANY CONDESCENSION TO HER ABOUT HER WEIGHT, WHICH BY THE WAY, SHE IS IN FULL CONTROL OF.
 
BY THE WAY, THE 7'3" GUY IN THIS VIDEO IS JUST REVELING IN HER ADULATION OF HIM, AND IN HIS TALL STATURE.  OH, THOSE POOR UNFORTUNATE TALLERS!!!  YOU SHOULD BE GLAD YOU'RE NOT HIS HEIGHT, "CAUSE DEN U MIGHT HIT UR HEAD ON DEH DOOR FRAME OR SUMTIN!"

IT'S ALL IN YOUR MIND LITTLE MAN.  YOU SHOULD JUST - "GET OVER IT".

Uganda: What Do Women Have Against Short Men?

ANALYSIS
By Pius Opae Papa
December 11, 2015


While growing up, Joel Kafeero thought he would finish school, find a job and get a wife to build a family. But at 46, he still 'sleeps like a Catholic priest.'

Kafeero [not real name] is a doctor who has worked so hard to see to it that he makes a happy family, but all to no avail. His 4.6 foot height has consistently dashed his dream.

"When I was at Makerere University studying medicine, my friends had girlfriends, but every girl I tried turned me down with no clear reason. But one, I remember she was called Juliet, bluntly told me that I was handsome but she couldn't date a short man," Kafeero recalls.

snip

"Many people ask why I am not married. But any woman I will meet now may not marry me because they love me. They would probably want to extort the small money I have and run away," says Kafeero in a resigned tone.

Given his humiliating experience, Kafeero believes short men like him are always marginalised, forcing them to fight for everything, because they are always passed by in a society that puts greater value on height as an attribute.

He says because society despises short men, they are forced to position themselves to gain attention, even fight back, sometimes employing aggression to earn respect.

snip

"If a man of average height went to any office, the secretary would describe him as 'a man.' But if I went to the same office, she would say 'a short man.'

Uganda is virtually an All-Black society.  This is all a "social construct" according to at least one "clever" reddit poster.

Inside The Mind Of A Short Woman Dating (Some of them)
Sunday, November 15, 2015

They're out there. You've heard of them. They exist in large numbers. They make women of all heights, short and tall look not so great. They are heightists, but short themselves. We mean "insecure short heightist women". They are the ones who put their preferences in bold and caps on their dating profiles with statements such as, "If you're under 5'10, don't even bother!", even if they're well under five feet. Yep, even a 5'8 guy wouldn't stand a chance, though he'd probably be taller than her in her highest stilettos. Well, YouTuber StephanieChats created a video voicing this very opinion, so she makes for a very interesting case study. There is no shortage of shorter guys who have anecdotes of the shorter women they've encountered being far more vocal and cruel about their height preferences than their average and tall counterparts, often shaming them for the very same deficit they themselves possess.

snip

She says in her video that "we short people have this insecurity tendency". Which short people is she talking about? Herself perhaps? Maybe her close friends? A nun at her church? She's projecting here at best, literally admitting that she is very insecure about her own height, but blame shifts by inventing this pseudo-fact that all short individuals have an insecurity. Where did she find this stat by the way?

Science Says Being Short Makes You Depressed

October 20, 2015

By Justin Caffier

Try to spin it any way you want, but being short sucks. You can't reach things, it's a hassle to find clothes that fit, and people feel like it's OK to make comments about your height bordering on hate speech. Those of shorter stature who also happen to have a penis seem to fare even worse than their female compatriots for a litany of reasons. Put plainly, it blows to be a short guy.

Let's reword the above just a little bit:

Science Says Being Black Makes You Depressed
October 20, 2015

By Justin Caffier


Try to spin it any way you want, but being Black sucks.  When a Black male gets into an elevator with a White woman, she gets off on the next floor.   Police shoot you for no reason or very little reason.  Those of Black skin who also happen to have a penis seem to fare even worse than their female compatriots for a litany of reasons.  Put plainly, it blows to be a Black guy. 

What do think now?

NEW WEBSITE FOR SHORT PEOPLE!!! - INTRODUCING SHORTREVOLUTION.COM

Is there such a thing as height discrimination (sometimes referred to as heightism)? Most people have never heard of it. But ask yourself two questions:

1. Would you like to be taller? Almost everyone in the world would answer yes to the first question. Regardless of height, just about everyone wants to be taller. If science could figure out a painless, cheap and easy way to add a few inches to our height, without any negative side-effects, most people would gladly do it. However, when they start to reflect on the reasons for their answer, they often just decide that being taller is better than being shorter.

2. How much money would you be willing to accept to be in the bottom 1 or 2% of the height distribution for the rest of your life (in the United States, that would be under 5’5″ if you are a man and under 5’0″ if you are woman)? This is a twist on Ohio State University Professor Philip Mazzocco’s 2007 study in which he asked white people how much money would it take for them to be black for the rest of their lives.  Most people think that being a little bit short is no big deal, but they would never want to be extremely short, because they instinctively know that they would be giving up a significant advantage.

Wife divorces her husband because he is too SHORT: Saudi bride says she could not take any more after being ridiculed for towering over him


 

  •  Saudi bride, 20, files for divorce after just seven months of marriage
  •  In legal papers states her husband's height is at the heart of the problem
  • Claimed she faced ridicule for towering over the unnamed man

By Sam Matthew for MailOnline

Published: 04:22 EST, 1 October 2015 | Updated: 06:05 EST, 1 October 2015

A young Saudi bride has divorced her husband because he is too short.

The woman, 20, claimed that she could no longer take the ridicule she received for towering over her spouse.

In legal documents she claimed that overshadowing her husband during their brief seven month union had made her feel 'painfully uneasy' and 'distressingly uncomfortable.'

Read more . . .


We're making the assumption here that this couple was Muslim.  Making that assumption, it is extremely interesting that since Arab and Muslim women have been portrayed in many places as being "oppressed", and not having "equal rights" compared to men in their societies, it is quite surprising that an Arab or Muslim woman can actually even make an attempt at getting a divorce from her Arab or Muslim husband under any conditions, let alone because of her husband's height, in this case her husbands' short stature.  It appears that women in Muslim countries DO have rights - at least when their husband is viewed as being less than a man - as short-statured men are often viewed, not only in Muslim countries, but perhaps everywhere on earth.  It appears that she won't be stoned for it, only because her husband is short.  Amazing isn't it?  In a society that has been painted as male-oriented and oppressive toward women, not only can a woman get a divorce, but she can get a divorce for something as seemingly ridiculous as her husbands height, which actually means her husband's  short-stature.  We seriously doubt that a woman ANYWHERE would ever divorce a man because he was too tall.

What the hell is it gonna take for short men to wake the F**k up?!

Jockey Victor Espinoza Is A ‘Coward’ Who Lusts After Young Girls


Published on: September 28, 2015



Little jockey Victor Espinoza is a bigger stud than American Pharaoh, the horse he rode to the Triple Crown in June.

The 5-foot-2 rider keeps his own stable of fillies, and sources said the 43-year-old likes ’em young and younger!

His horsing around got him in trouble when his fiancée, Stephanie Kunkel, 25, and girlfriend, Kelly Kovalchick, 19, both showed up to watch his run in the Belmont Stakes!

Kelly called him a “shameful coward.”

Read more . . .

Well, it only took 6 days after "little" jockey Victor Espinoza's appearance on "Dancing With The Stars" where he was portrayed as virtually a little child, to get labeled a "Coward who lusts after young girls".   What is the purpose of referring to Espinoza as "little jockey"?  All jockeys are little.  What is the purpose of stating his height - "The 5-foot-2 rider"?  Mostly all jockeys are short-statured.  Why is it that the media stigmatizes short-statured men in this fashion?  It is quite obvious that the media is the leader in portraying short men in a negative light whenever they get an opportunity to do so.  The media is the leader in falsely portraying short men.  This brief article's appearance is no coincidence coming only 6 days after Espinoza's appearance on 'Dancing with the Stars'.  Not all of us are stupid and childish.

Jeb Bush: Low Energy, High Altitude

By Elspeth Reeve,  October 1, 2015

Jeb Bush is height vain. He is vain about his height. But like so many people captivated by their own beauty, it’s not quite enough for Jeb to tower over more than 95 percent of American males. Behind the height bravado is a nagging anxiety that he's not quite tall enough.

                        
  This is a photo of Bush that he tweeted on      Bush with his 5'0" tall wife.
Sept. 30, 2015.  One would suspect
some
height-
based vanity here.


Bush is six-foot-four. That’s really tall. Many people would be perfectly pleased with that; recently on Yahoo Answers, for instance, a woman's query about having a six-foot-four boyfriend elicited this response: “the taller the man the cooler he is. your friend has a great height and it is ideal for a man. so dont worry about this, live happily.” But Jeb has no height chill. Instead of confidently hanging around his height peers, Bush seeks out small people to stand next to so as to look even taller. On Wednesday, Bush tweeted a photo of himself standing next to CNN reporter Dana Bash, who is five-foot-two. Just a funny little height joke, right? Wrong. It’s part of a longstanding and disturbing pattern.

Bush chose a wife, Columba, who is five feet tall. [Surprise, suprise!]

snip

When Bush is in a situation in which no short people can immediately be found to stand next to, he stands on his tippy toes.

Read more . . .


How pathetic can you get?  This guy is 6 feet four and he still needs to stand on his tip toes so that he can look even taller than his opposition?!  It's hard to believe this guy is actually running for the highest office in the land. Even though this article seemed to call a spade a spade, We've seen no accusations of Tall Man Complex or anything else connecting Bush's height to any personality characteristics of his.  Jeb Bush is listed in some places as 6'4" and in other places as 6'3".  We suspect that he's really 6'3" and that he wears lifts in his shoes to appear even taller.

It's all in your mind little man.  You should just, "Get over it".

VICTOR ESPINOZA 2015 
   
 EDDIE ARCARO 1976

                    

In the first video Kentucky Derby winning jockey Victor Espinoza appears on 'Dancing With The Stars'

16s:  platform moves and makes Espinoza appear taller

34s:  moves his hips like a woman and everyone laughs at him

1:50:  I don’t want to disappoint her.  The same way I take control on the Track; that’s the way I’m going to take control of Karina on the dance floor.  At 1:57 though it appears as if Karina is getting control of him.  She gets him in a soft bear hug and then pats him on his behind as if he was the woman.

3:38:  “Victor, you looked like you were 10 feet tall tonight.”  Someone goes, “AWWWW!” like they’re referring to a little boy.

3:48:  His dance partner puts her arm around him, as if he were her little brother.

3:52:  Jerk on their so-called Panel:  (With histrionics)  “You really have the commanding presence of a Giant”  His dance partner then gives him another one-armed hug like he was a little boy.

A little later in  the video Espinoza reiterates about taking control.  The reality is that his partner was taking control of him throughout.  It was as if he was a little boy who had done something “adult”, and all the adults were cheering him on.  Victor Espinoza has won the Kentucky Derby three times, and also the Preakness three times, and won the Triple Crown in 2015.  He is one of the winningest jockeys in the sport of Horse Racing; one of the most successful, yet even with all that success and money, he remains today at the age of 43, unmarried with no children.  The sad thing about his appearance on this “Dancing with The Stars”, is that he appears to cooperate with his portrayal as a “little man”.  The type of dancing Espinoza engaged in along with his “gyrations” only serve the media's agenda.  Contrast the above video of Espinoza with the 1976 commercial starring Eddie Arcaro, another all-time great jockey.  It’s not hard to see the difference.  Arcaro presents an image of manliness and competency; Espinoza does not.  The general attitude toward Espinoza was one that should be reserved for a 12-year old.  Instead of behaving like a World-Class jockey, Espinoza acted like a little boy seeking the approval of 'Bigger people'.  We believe that that there are two things at work here – Heightism and the general emasculinization of men (some of them) by the entertainment media.  The silly and foolish media of today work overtime to emasculate certain groups of men.  Unfortunately, Espinoza takes part in his own degradation.  We’re willing to wager that Espinoza experienced a bit of depression after watching this.  He should.  We’re also willing to bet that from here on in, his racing career will not be as successful as it has been in recent years.  Espinoza however, will probably not be consciously aware of what is at the root of his possible coming difficulties.  We’re aware though.  Incidentally, horse racing is the only sport where an animal gets more media exposure than a human being.  The name of the winning horse, especially in a big race like the Kentucky Derby or the Preakness is always more well-known than that of the jockey riding him.  This is yet another slight to short men.  Yet another one is the fact that the winning jockey in a race like the Kentucky Derby only receives 10% of the purse.

“It’s all in your mind little man.   You should just, get over it”.

NOW SOPHIA ROSENBAUM OF THE NEW YORK POST GETS INTO THE ACT AND REPLICATES SARAH KNAPTON'S PATHETIC ARTICLE AND GOES HER ONE BETTER IN THE WANTON AND TOTALLY FALSE LABELING OF SHORT MEN- 
Science proves Napoleon complex is terrifyingly real

By Sophia Rosenbaum
August 25, 2015 | 12:54pm

The Napoleon complex is real, a new study shows.
Men who struggle with their masculinity and height are three times as likely to commit violent assaults with a weapon, according to research published in the journal Injury Prevention by experts from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.



This website has made a formal complaint to the New York Post -

Dear Editor('s),

I'm phrasing this a complaint about Sophia Rosenbaum's article of August 25, 2015 -


Science Proves Napoleon Complex Is Terrifyingly Real

One of our subscribers recently contacted the Centers For Disease Control about the recent survey done in reference to alleged "Male Discrepancy Distress".  The inquiry was done in reference to another article on Telgraph.co.uk by Sarah Knapton where an article written by Ms. Knapton related the CDC survey's findings to something alleged to be called, "Small Man Syndrome", which in effect, is a derogatory colloquial phrase usually leveled at men of below average height.  The following is an excerpt from the reply our subscriber received in reference to the Survey's emphasis on height:

Thank you for your email to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
 
We are not familiar with the Telegraph article or any inferences the author of this article may have made. We can say that the research article authored by Dr. Reidy and colleagues is entirely unrelated to height. Men’s height was not measured, questioned, or referenced at any point, and it was not a goal of the study in any way. To the authors’ knowledge, height has never been considered a component in any established measurement paradigms of masculine gender roles.

We have also read Sophia Rosenbaums recent article stating in even more stark terms that short men have problems with violence toward women:

The Napoleon complex is real, a new study shows.
Men who struggle with their masculinity and height are three times as likely to commit violent assaults with a weapon, according to research published in the journal Injury Prevention by experts from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC response to our subscriber plainly states that:

We can say that the research article authored by Dr. Reidy and colleagues is entirely unrelated to height. Men’s height was not measured, questioned, or referenced at any point, and it was not a goal of the study in any way. To the authors’ knowledge, height has never been considered a component in any established measurement paradigms of masculine gender roles.

We believe that Ms. Rosenbaums' conclusions about the relation of height - in this case she specifically referenced short male stature - to violence, is completely erroneous, un-called-for, intentionally malicious,
and just patently false.  The CDC's response is proof-positive of that.  We respectfully request Sophia Rosenbaum of The New York Post to issue a retraction and apology to SupportForTheShort.org - and men of short stature - for her article denigrating short men and stating conclusions that have no basis in fact.

Respectfully,

webmaster
www.supportfortheshort.org

SARAH KNAPTON 


WHO WROTE THE ARTICLE -
Small man syndrome really does exist, US government researchers conclude  - AND WHO IS ALSO MOST LIKELY SHORT-STATURED HERSELF -

- has maliciously and intentionally written false information.   One of our stalwarts contacted the Centers for Disease Control about the survey conducted by Dr Dennis Reidy, Division of Violence Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and questioned him about Sarah Knapton's article and the false and intentionally libelous title about the alleged "Small man syndrome".   The response from the CDC was:



We are not familiar with the Telegraph article or any inferences the author of this article may have made. We can say that the research article authored by Dr. Reidy and colleagues is entirely unrelated to height. Men’s height was not measured, questioned, or referenced at any point, and it was not a goal of the study in any way.

The Ugly Face of Disability Hate Crime - BBC Documentary

The three men depicted in this video are facially disfigured.  All have been victimized.   The main person depicted – Adam Pearson – and also doing the narration, is SHORT-STATURED, as well as the two other men.  Their stature was not mentioned.  The man doing most of the talking although disfigured, is apparently not aware that maybe, just maybe, his height or size, may have played a role in the many times that he has apparently been mistreated or victimized.  This is a very instructive video for the short-statured as even the disabled may fail to realize the role that their stature or size plays in the treatment that they receive from society; after all, if he and the other guys were 6’4” and 290 pounds, is it credible to believe that they would have been violated or victimized so easily by others?  We don’t think so.  Their small size plays a major role in their victimization, but that’s not being taken into consideration here, and it should be.  This is a video worth viewing more than once, because many things stated here can and should be applied to the short-statured as well as the disabled.  The disabled seemingly have at least somewhat of a ‘Voice’; the short-statured do not.  The professor at the Oxford University Psychology Department said it best:  “They are the problem, not you."
