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 -
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 storyhere.
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.
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.
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.
Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.
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.
Publication Date: April 24, 2014
This is the first book to explore the ramifications of increasing human height in relation to physical performance, health, longevity, the environment, economics and resource consumption. It is based on scientific research and presents a surprising picture of the benefits and disadvantages of increasing human height and weight. Many of the findings reported will shatter many of your previously held beliefs. It provides useful information for people of all heights.
Several reviewer comments on The Truth About Your Height follow.
“Samaras has achieved a new plateau. This widely-read author and researcher has produced a pivotal book that documents the increase in size of both men and women over previous generations, and extrapolates the consequences.” The Book Reader
Huffington Post interviews 3 short men in a segment relating to the bogus "Short Man Syndrome". About as expected. Three "cool" short guys interviewed, including an annoying "comedian". No real issues discussed. ___________________
More Heightism Bullsh*t – From Oxford University No Less
BIGOTED 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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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".
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
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
"I don't get why people are so offended by it," he said.
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". _____________________
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
Just another example of the extraordinary media bias toward the short man.
This undated sheet, addressed to a “Col. Jackson,” issues instructions

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.
The booklet advises special handling depending on whether suspects are fat, short . . .
"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
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."
- "Short physique: If we think for a moment how many small men

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
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
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
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.
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."
All cultures have a subtle and even not-so-subtle predisposition against
shorter people in favor of taller people, especially for males.
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
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.
The Caring Quotient - . . . When a tall man hugs a woman he can hold her firm and she can confide in him.
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.
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.
Here is a list of the current Implicit Association Tests listed on the Project Implicit website:
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'. ____________________
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".
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:
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.

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.
"LITTLE DICK GETS TRICKED"
GREAT FIND: A short guy gets caked, laughed at and has his manhood (or
at least his height) demeaned in front of the entire office! I used the
info from this description provided in the flckr account from the
original video to add content to the re-edit. I then found additional
footage of this guy from company videos and folded it in.
"Richard/RICK: King of Sales - but also king of the SHORT MAN COMPLEX -
overly aggressive, full of himself and totally conceited for someone who
is only 5 ft 7 inches tall and often toxic. That's why we nicknamed
him, "Little DICK!" We had a meeting that ended with a huge dessert
spread provided to us by one of our clients. All day long Rick Addeo
made fun of Gregg's weight saying he couldn't eat anything from the
table. When Gregg went to partake in some cake, Rick thought he'd be
clever and grab the cake from him. Gregg promptly creamed our little
dick good!. The big issue was not smashing cake in Rick's face (long
time coming), but that Gregg actually called Rick "Little Dick," right
to his face (something that we NEVER do publicly). It got huge laughs -
but exploded into a giant human resources issue by end of day! And our
HR officer had trouble addressing it because she's called Rick, "LITTLE
DICK" behind his back, too!

in their faces. In the videos on his YouTube channel most of the people
throwing the pies are either women or Bigger men - bigger men than
their targets of course. But that's okay. Just as long as they're not
short men. That would be evidence of "Short man Syndrome".
Heightism is subtle. It's all "sub-conscious".
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
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”.
BEATLE PAUL MCCARTNEY MEETS A VERY TALL MAN (OLDIE BUT A GOODIE)
Starr (5'6") of The Beatles didn't react to the height of the very Tall
men interviewing him. Paul McCartney (5'11") did. Said McCartney: Be
Tall! Be Tall! - While standing on his tiptoes in an apparent attempt
to match the height of 'Cousin' Brucie. This is a typical reaction of
tall or semi-tall men when meeting very tall men. I'm sorry, what did
you say, I did not hear you? "But that was 50 years ago!!!" Really?
And what has changed in the interim?
danger in dating a taller woman is that she may be ok with it at first,
but often later on she will regret it and realize that she would be
happier with a taller man. That has happened to me before.
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.
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.
Below are two posts from the same individual taken from 'Sociological Images' dated October 2011 --
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.
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?
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
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Be advised: Folks like this sometimes have a tendency to do a disappearing act along with all of their posts.
Short people tend to be more prone to feelings of inferiority and jealousy, a recent study concluded.
The article says the prejudice isn't deliberate though. People just do it naturally. Seems they just can't help themselves.
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.
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.
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.
“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".
Low-energy Jeb Bush, the Tall Scumbag that Donald Trump has been beating up on and who recently recruited his 90 year old mommy, former First Lady Barbara Bush to defend and 'pwotect' him, and who undoubtedly wears lifts in his shoes to appear even Taller AND who recently dropped out of the Presidential Race, is one of the candidates depicted in the photo above. Bush appears about 4-5 inches taller than Donald Trump standing immediately to his right, when - in reality - he is no more than 1 or 2 inches taller than Trump. Bush's wife is about 15 or 16 inches shorter than him by the way. The stupid lummox thought he was going to get the nomination based on his height. Bush spent over 150 MILLION DOLLARS of Donor money to take Donald Trump down. Now Bush has been taken down.
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.
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 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.
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.”
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.
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.
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.

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”.
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
There are a few practical problems that arise when you have a 6ft 3in 16-year-old in the house -
And he has always loved the pioneering role he’s been born into.
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

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]
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

This above statements are what some people claim to be
"micro-aggressions" against them. Now take a look at what some
people (SJW's?) say about Short men:
The hypocrisy is incredible. What amounts to mostly innocuous
remarks are what Harvard Students consider 'micro-aggressions'. Yet the
comments on twitter about short men are real, honest-to-goodness hate.
There have been tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of them
made, over the course of the last 10 years on Twitter and no one except
for yours truly and a handful of others has said a damn thing about
it. There are also many reports of short men receiving outright hate
directed at them - in person - hate that makes the silly
self-centeredness of the people in the above video seem ridiculous.

get a wife to build a family. But at 46, he still 'sleeps like a
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.
"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.
"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.'

A DOUBLEHEADER!!!! TWO BROADCASTS IN ONE DAY!!!!
In the first broadcast an attorney from Atlanta Georgia comes forward to
tell of her experiences with bigotry based on her short stature, and in
the second broadcast the webmaster talks with Mumia Obsidian Ali of 'Obsidian Radio'.
BROADCAST OF DECEMBER 4, 2015 - INTERVIEW WITH AN ATLANTA ATTORNEY ON HEIGHTISM
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.
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?
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.
Science Says Being Black Makes You Depressed

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?
HEIGHTISM: THE BRUTAL TRUTH
IF YOU'RE NOT SURE THAT HEIGHTISM OR HEIGHT BIGOTRY EXISTS, THE TWITTER
TWEETS BELOW SHOULD CONVINCE YOU OTHERWISE. NO; IT'S NOT SUBTLE AND
IT'S NOT "ALL IN YOUR MIND". THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF TWEETS
(PERHAPS EVEN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS) VERY SIMILAR TO THE ONES BELOW, BUT
IT WOULD TAKE 20 YEARS TO DISPLAY ALL OF THEM ON THE BIGGEST WEBPAGE IN
THE WORLD. YOU SHOULD ESPECIALLY TAKE NOTICE OF THE COMMONALITIES AMONG
THESE TWITTER SCUM. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK 'DAILY HEIGHTISM' FOR THE RETWEETS.
NOTICE ANY COMMONALITIES AMONG THESE PEOPLE?
OH, AND BY THE WAY, ANYONE WHO DISMISSES THIS STUFF AS INNOCUOUS OR
JUST A BUNCH OF KIDS SHOWING OFF FOR THEIR FRIENDS OR SOME SUCH ROT, IS
PROBABLY ONE OR MORE OF SEVERAL THINGS:
A DELUDED SHORT GUY (OF WHICH THERE ARE QUITE A FEW)
A DELUDED SHORT GIRL/WOMAN PROJECTING HER OWN FEELINGS ABOUT HERSELF ONTO SHORT MEN
AVERAGE-HEIGHTED OR TALLER PEOPLE NOT WANTING TO GIVE UP THEIR 'HEIGHT PRIVILEGE')
PEOPLE LOOKING FOR AN ACCEPTABLE GROUP TO DISPLAY HATRED TOWARDS (SINCE SO MANY OTHER "GROUPS" HAVE RIGHTS TODAY)
AMERICAN LIBERALS WHO LIKE TO THINK THEY'RE SO "EGALITARIAN"
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THE TYPE OF "PEOPLE" WHO MAKE THESE STATEMENTS
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.
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

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

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?!
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 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!]
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.
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".
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”.
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 -
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

The CDC response to our subscriber plainly states that:

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
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.

about the survey conducted by Dr Dennis Reidy, Division of Violence

false and intentionally libelous title about the alleged "Small man

FALSE AND MISLEADING INFORMATION FROM THE UK ABOUT SHORT MEN BY A WOMAN LOOKING TO FURTHER LABEL AND PIGEON-HOLE SHORT MEN.
The Ugly Face of Disability Hate Crime - BBC Documentary
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."
FINALLY!!! THE WEBMASTER'S INTERVIEW WITH MEGYN KELLY
In 2006 the webmaster was associated with the website www.nossaonline.org. The year before, in 2005 he was asked to be the Secretary of what was represented to him as the National Organization of Short Statured Adults, Inc.
He accepted. What he didn’t realize was that the website was being
falsely represented as an incorporated non-profit organization.
Nevertheless, in May of 2006, he was contacted by an AP reporter to
offer comments on a judge’s decision for sentencing a very short man to
probation in a Lincoln, NE case. He offered his comments to the
reporter. He was then asked to be interviewed by Bill O’Reilly, Nancy Grace,
Megyn Kelly (at the time Megyn Kendall), and one or two others. This
is his interview with the then Megyn Kendall. Please click on Megyn
Kelly's photo to hear the interview.
