Support For The Short - A website about Heightism
FROM REDDIT - Short people making fun of even shorter people


Hey guys, I wanted to share you something that happened to me today. Today I was hanging out with a group of friends, as they were talking about marijuana one of the guys said a remark about "not to smoke weed or otherwise they may end up as short as 'me'". Obviously this was a joke, a really bad one but my concern is what do you guys think of short people making fun of even shorter pals? The case here was that the guy was around 5'5 and he still pretty much made fun of my height. So what are you thoughts when it comes to such cases?

A poster named 'MangoldShep' replied:
These are the folks that are even worse than Garmins, and they belong in a special place in hell. They will completely cannibalize any short camaraderie for even a fleeting moment of acceptance from their tall masters. . . .

But what do you think?




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 here.

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)

This undated sheet, addressed to a “Col. Jackson,” issues instructions for enlistment of men in the Continental Army.

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.

"LITTLE DICK GETS TRICKED"


Comments:
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.
From FLCKR:
"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!


Put up on YouTube by a character who calls himself 'Jackson Bovo', who appears to like videos of short or scrawny men getting pies thrown 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





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”.

BEATLE PAUL MCCARTNEY MEETS A VERY TALL MAN    (OLDIE BUT A GOODIE)


Ringo 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

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.

Jealousy, Prejudice, and Short People   
Written by Chris Cotter

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

Men who fall short of masculine ideals overcompensate with gender stereotypes

by Hannah Osborne
June 23, 2015

snip

Published in the journal Social Psychology, the authors say their findings have important implications for the identification of strategies men use when they feel their masculinity is threatened. For example, previous studies have shown men who scored low on masculinity tests tend to behave more aggressively, harass women and belittle other men.

snip

Participants were then asked to fill out a questionnaire about their height, number of prior relationships, personality traits and how interested they were in products generally considered male or female.

Findings showed that men who were given falsely low results exaggerated their height . . .

No specific mention of short men in this article, just in-general belittling of men.  The implication in the article (written by a woman) is that men in general have to be reigned in, and their masculinity curbed.  Another implication is that short statured men "fall short" of  "Masculine Ideals".  We've noticed that there is a disproportionate amount of men-bashing coming out of the UK and also a disproportionate level of the belittling of short men coming from the UK.  Disparaging short men seems to almost be becoming a favorite hobby of more and more people on the Internet today.  Incidentally, the UK has Hate-crime laws for many, many groups based on the usual characteristics.  It appears that men, and particularly SHORT MEN, are now the favorite targets of many of the same hypocrites who espouse Political Correctness for every other group.

Russia prohibits gays, gambling addicts, short people from getting drivers licenses


Christian Today staff writer Published 13 January 2015


The Russian government has banned people with "personality disorders" from getting drivers licenses in what they consider an effort to make their streets safer.

Gays, transgendered persons, gambling addicts, cleptomaniacs, and fetishists are among those no longer able to legally drive in the country.

snip

The Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights called the new law - which also affects amputees and persons under 4'11" - "discriminatory," and said it would seek support from international human rights organisations in protesting the order.

Short people lumped in with transgendered persons, gambling addicts, cleptomaniacs, fetishists, and others with "personality disorders" when it comes to driving a car in Russia.

Does Putin Suffer From the Napoleon Complex?
The psychology of short stature and leadership

Height Bigot, quack, and Tall man
looking to "stick it" to short men - "Professor" Mark Van Vugt

 

Does Putin Suffer From the Napoleon Complex?
The psychology of short stature and leadership
Post published by Mark van Vugt Ph.D. on May 07, 2014 in Naturally Selected


snip

Fortunately, we can conduct a psychological analysis of the individual Putin, albeit remotely. One striking feature of the Russian president is his small stature. His body height of 5 ft 7 (1.70m) is in stark contrast to other world leaders. Barack Obama, and David Cameron are no less than 4 inches taller (6ft1).

snip

In animal behavior research something akin to the Napoleon complex has already been found. Biologists have found in several fish species that the smaller males start fights more often than the big guys.

snip

Putin occasionally shows his macho side, and that's not for nothing . He is being photographed as he is hunting or fishing, and then preferably bare-chested . He thus demonstrates that he is a ' real man. '

snip

The machismo of Putin has another, sexual dimension. No doubt he is trying to impress his girlfriend, former Olympic gymnast Alina Kabayeva, who is his junior by 30 years.

Read more BS . . .


Mark Van Vugt seems to think it is "Natural Selection" that short men get the "shaft"; just evolution that short men are victims of wanton discrimination.  Of course stating the same or similar things about people based on traits like race, creed, skin color, sex, sexual orientation, etc. would land Mr. Van Vugt a one-way ticket to career suicide.  He can't label anyone based on the above traits so he labels short men.  This is what passes for science, and this guy is what passes for a "Professor".  Van Vugt is from the Netherlands where the average height is approximately 6'1".

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

Why White people earn more and have better jobs

•     May 21, 2015 7:37AM


BAD news for the color challenged: a few lighter skin shades makes you more likely to land a great job, earn more and get that promotion.

White people are even more likely to break out of a lowly office job and become entrepreneurs, research shows.

A new study from Ohio State University confirms what many reports have already claimed — that workers who score highly in the skin color department receive a “substantial premium” in their pay packet. A difference of four or five shades can mean up to a 15 per cent increase in wages, The Atlantic reported.

In his popular book Blink, Malcolm Gladwell wrote: “There’s plenty of evidence to suggest that Whiteness — particularly in men — does trigger a certain set of very positive, unconscious associations ... In the US population, about 65 per cent of all men are White. Among CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, that number is 98 per cent.”

He cited a study that found a shade in skin color was worth $789 a year in salary. Timothy Judge, one of the authors, pointed out that over a 30-year career, this could mean “hundreds of thousands of dollars of earnings advantage.”

A German study last month confirmed that  whiter people have better work and life satisfaction, higher socio-economic status and were more likely to be self-employed — and making more money from it.

So why does this happen? Many studies have concluded that White people are socially dominant while people of color are discriminated against, and seen as small and insignificant.

Gladwell says White people are hired for top jobs because of an unconscious prejudice in which we “automatically associate leadership ability with imposing White skin”.

But a 2006 study by the National Bureau of Economic Research in the US said the answer is more simple — White people are just more intelligent. “Throughout childhood, White children perform significantly better on cognitive tests,” the paper read.

A study by Edinburgh University last year also found a “significant genetic correlation” between Whiteness and IQ.

The latest study from Ohio said it is a combination of factors, and that the most important variable is nutrition. Another is attractiveness, which can boost earnings by up to 10 per cent.

It said that an extra two shades lighter in skin color was the equivalent of growing up in a middle-class family instead of a lower-class one.

Time to buy some skin whitener.

Why tall people earn more and have better jobs

•     May 21, 2015 7:37AM


BAD news for the vertically challenged: a few extra inches makes you more likely to land a great job, earn more and get that promotion.

Tall people are even more likely to break out of a lowly office job and become entrepreneurs, research shows.

A new study from Ohio State University confirms what many reports have already claimed — that workers who score highly in the height department receive a “substantial premium” in their pay packet. A difference of four or five inches can mean up to a 15 per cent increase in wages, The Atlantic reported.

In his popular book Blink, Malcolm Gladwell wrote: “There’s plenty of evidence to suggest that height — particularly in men — does trigger a certain set of very positive, unconscious associations ... In the US population, about 14.5 per cent of all men are six feet or over. Among CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, that number is 58 per cent.”

He cited a study that found an inch in height was worth $789 a year in salary. Timothy Judge, one of the authors, pointed out that over a 30-year career, this could mean “hundreds of thousands of dollars of earnings advantage.”

A German study last month confirmed that taller people have better work and life satisfaction, higher socio-economic status and were more likely to be self-employed — and making more money from it.
So why does this happen? Many studies have concluded that tall people are socially dominant while short people are discriminated against, and seen as small and insignificant.

Gladwell says tall people are hired for top jobs because of an unconscious prejudice in which we “automatically associate leadership ability with imposing physical stature”.

But a 2006 study by the National Bureau of Economic Research in the US said the answer is more simple — tall people are just more intelligent. “Throughout childhood, taller children perform significantly better on cognitive tests,” the paper read.

CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE




9:51 Host:  But being a man gives you more privilege than being a child obviously.
Desmond Cole (Torontoist):  Yes.
Host:  And women too?
Desmond Cole: Yes.  In many cases.
SupportForTheShort:  How would Mr. Cole like it if he were compared to a child?  How would Mr. Cole like it if were actually thought to BE a child?    How would he like it if women of the same – and all skin colors – thought of him as “genetic garbage”.  We could go on and on.

11:23 Karen Straughan (girlwriteswhat youtube channel): . . . men do have some privileges compared to women and they will be taken seriously in ways that women often won’t.
SupportForTheShort:  People of TALL stature no matter what their skin color, race, creed, sex, sexual orientation, etc. have unearned “privileges” over short statured people and they are ALWAYS TAKEN MORE SERIOUSLY than the short-statured person.

18:23 Katherine Hensel:  I can tell you it’s jarring to me when I get off the plane, it’s this immediate, when I get off the plane in Winnipeg or the other (unintelligible) provinces, you see people’s faces, they’re trying to figure out that I’m not a “slam-dunk”, and they see and they scan me, they see the briefcase, they see the suit, they see my face, and then a little scowl –
Host:  The scowl means what?
Katherine Hensel:  Um, just they’re identifying me non-aboriginal people identifying me as an aboriginal . . .
SupportForTheShort:  She doesn’t even know why people are looking at her, she just assumes this.  When people violate your personal zone of space (the short person), make malicious, wanton, and brutal insults against your person directed at your height, you can be damn well certain that you are being targeted INTENTIONALLY.  And the other party’s absolute absence of fear or even the most basic respect for your human dignity is proof positive of the total acceptability of heightism directed at people of short-stature which far exceeds actions that would be directed at almost any other group of people.

19:37 Saadia Muzaffar: I think people see my name, they’ve not even met me or ever laid eyes on me
Host:  They see your name and they assume what?
Saadia Muzaffar:  They assume a) that I’m different.  I’m always categorized as an “other” so I’m always having to prove that I am articulate and thoughtful and my experience matter and questions like, ‘So where are you from?” – Well, Toronto.  “Where are you really from?”  And this never ends . . . and we laugh now but this is exhausting.  These are micro-aggressions that keep happening over and over again.
Supportfortheshort:  Well Ms. Muzaffar, the Tallers don’t even care where we’re from.  They don’t care at all.  We may as well not even exist in some situations.  Just asking where you’re from is not a ‘micro-aggression’ in our opinion.  Asking, “Does your mother let you out this late?” is a real sentence of aggression.

22:10  Host:  We do do that.  Why to we go there?
Jonathan Kay:  We like to put people in boxes . . .
Host:  They’re SIZING YOU UP in a different way obviously.
Jonathan Kay:  They’re SIZING ME UP in a different dimension . . .
SupportForTheShort:  The host doesn’t even realize what he just said.  “Sizing Up” is a phrase that means basically, “Does this person pose a threat?”  “Can this person fight back?”  “Can this person be an adversary?”  And Big ALWAYS means better, stronger, and tougher.

28:40 Desmond Cole:  If you don’t know what it’s like for someone to have somebody say, “Desmond, your skin is like so dark!  It’s like so dark!”
Host:  (Surprised) People said that to you?!
Desmond Cole:  Of course!  And they don’t know the impact that that has on me. But –
Host:  Which is what?
Desmond Cole:  It hurts my feelings. . . . This is not about the person who said “Desmond your skin is so dark” has bad intentions, it’s about the fact that what they say hurts. . . .
SupportForTheShort:  With short people it IS about bad intentions.  It is about intentional maliciousness.  It is about hate. (Just go to twitter)  It is about prejudice.  It can even be about violence.  And no one gives a Frenchman’s phuck about it.

30:27 Sadia Muzzafar:  . . . And that’s why it’s important to talk about the fact that they’re coming at it from a point of view to hurt somebody actively, regardless, the effect of that is pain.
SupportForTheShort:  With respect to short people others are almost always viewing the short person as unable to fight back.

Host:  Is there a place in this conversation for the offending person to say:  ‘Hey, I didn’t mean anything by this, Chill out!’
Sadia Muzzafar:  Which the sort of the less amped-up version of being defensive, right?  It was a joke, right, relax.  Which is trivializing what I felt on the receiving end.  So you’re saying a) you hurt me and b) you don’t care, is what you’re saying to me.  So instead of saying that, you could be forthcoming and say, “I don’t understand this, why is this a problem”.  I don’t think many people who are on the other end would say, “Well that’s your problem.”  They would actually make a concerted effort to have that understanding.
SupportForTheShort:  No group knows better than short people and short men in particular the meaning of the word “trivialing”.

38:00 Sadia Muzzafar:  That’s where the “Check your privilege” phrase comes from and how most people react to it.  The reason why it’s viewed as confrontational because it’s often at the tail end of, somebody saying, “This is my life, I have to negotiate something that you don’t give a second thought to, every single day of my life, so there’s a part of my energy, my effort, my sanity, that goes into just normalizing things, that other people just walk through, and that’s why most of the time when somebody logs a “check your privilege”, it is with an undertone of frustration and rage, uh, but it comes from not just that one incident, it is built on like, it’s death by a thousand paper cuts.
SupportForTheShort:  No one has yet coined the phrase, “Tall Privilege” so we might as well do it right here and now.  I don’t believe Ms. Muzzafar has ever been called a malicious term like “runt”, or “shrimp”, or “pipsqueak”.  I don’t think she has been hurt intentionally in any way, shape or form, otherwise she most surely would have mentioned it.  I don’t think she has ever been targeted so directly the way short people often are.  I don’t think anyone has patted her on the head lately as if she were a child.  I don’t think anyone has targeted her specifically for the kind of harassment that short people are often victims.  I don’t think she’s ever experienced in the workplace what a reddit poster claimed happened to him, in other words, I don’t think she ever walked down the hall of a professional company and had a “partner” in the company swing a file folder at her head.  I don’t think people on the street bump into her expecting her to get out of their way.  I don’t think people with Ms. Muzzafar’s ancestry are wished to be exterminated on places like twitter.  I don’t think people of her ancestry have been wished on places like twitter, for genocide.  We could go on and on with this too.  Are we playing the “Oppression Olympics” here?  We sure as hell are, and we're way in front for the Gold Medal for most targeted group on the planet.  We’re also way in front for the Gold Medal for least recognized prejudice, and last but not least, we don’t even have a forum for verbalizing it.

It's 2015, and rights for short people are NOT part of ANY forum.

Study Finds A Song of Ice and Fire Boosts Heightism Against Men

Posted: May 12, 2015 in Uncategorized



(Pasadena, CA) A new study conducted by societal researchers at CalTech finds that George R.R. Martin’s seminal fantasy series is fueling heightism against men of shorter stock.

The realm of Westeros is full of tall men. Gregor Clegane, the Mountain that Rides, is nearly eight feet tall. His brother, the Hound, is described as being, “tall” and “muscled like a bull.” The trio of Baratheon kings, Robert, Stannis, and Renly, are all described as big men, and attractive to boot.

CalTech scientists conducted a poll of women active on the Tumblr blogging website who professed to love the series and found that, overall, they prefer taller men.

“I have a special place in my heart for men who don’t measure up,” one woman answered. “The friendzone.

snip

The heightism in ASoIaF is readily apparent and it’s hurting men, Men’s Rights Activist Matty Van Horn wrote in his blog:

“I’m five feet 9 inches, which is actually on the taller side of average. But thanks to women dreaming of the Kingslayer every time they have some man on top of them I’m getting heightzoned. When I am repeatedly messaging a woman online I tell her how tall I am. Before I get the ‘ive’ out in ‘five’ she’s got me blocked. I’m pretty sure one of them even called the police on me last week to file a report.”

All it takes for the police to be called on you is for you to be short.  Pretty soon it's going to be a crime just to be short-statured.

Wake the phuck up little man.

Guy Pretends He Was Drafted In The NBA Draft, Gets Treated Like A King (Video) [HE'S 6'10"]



Some of the comments of the duped:

5'8" guy: I'm honored
5'0" guy:  Can I get a picture with you?
5'10" guy:  Congratulations!  Get a picture of me . . .!
Bartender:  It's on the house!


Connor Toole, the guy in the video says: 

It turns out if you wear a suit, act really confident AND are also 7 feet tall  it's real easy to get on the floor of the NBA draft.

What he doesn't say is that the first two are moot points if one isn't this TALL.  He's doing a whole lot more than getting on the floor of the NBA draft.  Connor then walks the streets and frequents the clubs of Manhattan.  As expected everyone is awed.  He is mobbed by men and women alike.  This could not be done if not for his very tall height.  He gets awe, admiration, and love from both men and women alike.  He gets free drinks, requests for photos and selfies with him; Women freely give him their phone numbers, and allow him to hug them, kiss them, and "handle" them.  Could anyone possibly picture a short man wearing a suit and "acting really confident" getting the same sort of treatment?  Men who are tall know perfectly well the "privilege" which they enjoy.  They know perfectly well that they receive respect and admiration that much of the time they neither earn nor deserve.  They receive this from both sexes and all races and nationalities. At the end Connor says:

All around it sounds like a great life when you're in the NBA.  I can't wait to get up at 9 o'clock and go to work.

He forgot to mention the perks he gets there too.

Too bad short guys can't pretend they're tall, right Connor?

Does height equal power? Some CEOs say yes
Updated 7/18/2007 12:56 AM

By Del Jones, USA TODAY


Le Gourmet Gift Basket CEO Cynthia McKay wears 3-inch heels even though she's 5-foot-9 in bare feet.

Why? For the same reason that 6-foot-3 Don Peebles, CEO of The Peebles Corporation, the nation's largest African-American-owned real estate development company, puts his hand on the shoulder of shorter adversaries and CROWDS INTO THEIR PERSONAL SPACE when negotiating a key deal.



It's to gain a "subliminal sense of power,"
Peebles says.

People of status often use height, or an inflated appearance of height, to look more powerful, says Lara Tiedens, an organizational behavior professor at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business, who has written extensively about how executives acquire status. They look directly at others, use an open stance and vigorous gestures, speak loudly in a deep voice, interrupt at will, and lean in close or otherwise reduce the space of others and expand their own. What does all that audacity get them? Others see them as smarter, more competent and deserving of all their promotions, Tiedens says.

Read more . . .


Tallers on this level know perfectly well that they're "privileged".  They know perfectly well how to use their tall stature to intimidate.  They know perfectly well what they can get away with.  And now - so do you.  And this isn't the half of it.  You see, it's not all in your mind after all.

'Black' - like her
Guinevere June 12, 2015




A CIVIL rights campaigner who spent almost a decade presenting herself as a black woman has been outed by her family as white, according to reports.

Rachel Dolezal is facing claims that she lied about her ethnicity after applying to lead a local civil rights group in Washington state in north-west United States.

Her estranged mother says her daughter has misrepresented herself as black since 2006.

The 37-year-old activist is president of a local branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, which campaigns for the rights of African Americans.

snip

It’s very sad that Rachel has not just been herself

Ruthanne says the family is of Czech, Swedish and German heritage, with only a trace of Native American roots.


Read more . . .


It's easier for a White woman to darken her skin, get a Black hairstyle and pass herself off as Black, than for a short person to attempt to pass himself/herself off as tall.  Picture a person 5'2" walking around with stilts and claiming to be 6'2".  Picture a short person on a basketball court (or anywhere else) attempting to masquerade as a tall person.  Does this tell us anything?  What it tells us is that it's easier to "change" ones' race than ones' height.  An individual's height at some level is more restrictive than then their race, or even their gender (See Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner below).  And discrimination based on height - usually short stature - is virtually unrecognized, putting its victims into a far deeper hole than with mostly any other type of discrimination.  There are no restrictions on heightism.

Get your head out of the sand.

What is beyond doubt, is that short men have every reason to be fed-up with their lot.  [A little common sense from bald and probably fat David Derbyshire.  And being fat is HIS choice.]

No one really knows why tall people — and particularly tall men — do so well in life. It may be partly to do with evolution. Tall men are seen by women as being healthier, fitter and stronger, looking all round the better catch.


Read more trash . . .


We know why tall people - and particularly tall men - do so well in life.  It's because short people - and particularly short men - are victims of an unrecognized and unchecked prejudice which dirtbags like David Derbyshire promote with their biased and hostile articles on rags like the Daily Trash, uh, I mean, the Daily Mail.

Just ignore us David.  It's "all in our minds".

Police: Chula Vista man fired 19 shots at neighbor with AR-15
City News Service
11:05 AM, May 29, 2015
11:16 AM, May 30, 2015

snip

Michael Majerus, 42, allegedly fired 19 shots from an AR-15 assault rifle at 43-year-old Nicholas Reynolds as the victim was getting into his car at their apartment complex in the 100 block of E Street in Chula Vista shortly after 7:30 a.m. Thursday. Reynolds collapsed and died next to his vehicle.

The killing apparently stemmed from an ongoing dispute between the two men, police Capt. Lon Turner said. The captain said the exact nature of the feud was not immediately clear, but neighbors told news crews it involved bullying and ridicule that Majerus' family had suffered because they are dwarfs

The culmination of bullying and ridicule.  Strange as this might seem, in this article there is a photo which apparently depicts the apartment complex where both men lived, and in that photo we see part of a Confederate flag in a window.  Is this depiction a subtle attempt to associate a short man (dwarf) with the KKK?  Or is it something else?

A video in some ways similar to the zone of space violation videos below.  Though it's promoting 'Wind Energy', the people who made the video made darn sure they depicted the "wind" in the form of a Tall Man, this way he can violate people as he did in the video with childish pranks and still get the sympathy of the audience while complaining how lonely he is.  Just a few of the comments were:


I was always misunderstood... it was lonely... but you get used to it after awhile." This is a brilliant commercial. Also, it made me cry because I'm a wuss. But watch it, because it's lovely and witty. :-)

As refreshing as a cool breeze! Extraordinary way of looking at something so ordinary
Great Ad!  Love this!

One of the best commercials I've ever seen

We wonder what the comments would have read like if it was a short man depicted in the video doing exactly the same things.  Wind energy would probably be set back another 25 years.

THE LITTLE GUY
August 12, 2014
by Laura Grey

You’d be shocked if a coworker said she could gauge the intelligence of a member of your company by the color of her skin, wouldn’t you? If your child’s teacher said Muslim kids aren’t trustworthy, you’d notify the principal at once. If your favorite cafe’s owner said he disliked gay people, his blatant bigotry would ensure that you’d never eat his risotto again. You’re careful not to stereotype people in wheelchairs or wheatgrass juice drinkers, lesbians or limo drivers, Estonians or the elderly. You see how ridiculous it is to ascribe personality traits to whole groups, or make generalizations about ability or behavior based on so little information. You expect your friends, family and coworkers to show the same respect to others that you do.

So, why are so many otherwise sensitive, multiculturally aware folks so willing to put down the little guy? Why does society hold such contempt for short men?

Easy laughs at the expense of men who are mere inches shorter than average are commonly accepted in daily conversation, in ads, in TV shows and films, at work. . . .

Surveys of attitudes reveal that people both perceive and treat people of shorter stature as inferior. This is particularly notable in the business sphere. International university studies have shown that short people, male and female, are paid less than taller people, with disparities similar in magnitude to those ascribed to race and gender gaps. Tall people have significant advantages when it comes to hiring, pay, promotions and prominence within their companies. A 2005 survey of the heights of Fortune 500 companies’ CEOs revealed that they were on average six feet tall, approximately three inches taller than the average U.S. man. Fully 30% of these CEOs were six feet two inches tall or more. Ninety percent of CEOs are of above average height.

Art Garfunkel on Paul Simon: 'I created a monster'

 . . . he is not as tall as you might imagine [alluding to Art Garfunkel]— an illusion that was probably created during all those years standing next to the diminutive Paul Simon.  . . .  Actually, another question strikes me. I speculate about whether Paul Simon might have a Napoleon complex. Is there a height thing there, between them?

“I think you’re on to something. I would say so, yes.”

He adds that at school he felt sorry for Paul because of his height, and he offered him love and friendship as a compensation. “And that compensation gesture has created a monster. End of interview.”

Paul Simon is an 'idiot' with a 'Napoleon complex': Art Garfunkel doesn't hold back as he opens up about their 45-year-old battle - and even has a dig at Sir Paul McCartney

Still feuding: Art Garfunkel says Paul Simon has ‘short man complex’.

He added: ‘How can you walk away from this lucky place on top of the world, Paul? What’s going on with you, you idiot?’

When asked whether 5ft 3in Simon had might have a Napoleon complex, Garfunkel replied: 'I think you’re on to something. I would say so, yes.'




The reporter who interviewed Art Garfunkel initiated the discussion by "speculating" whether Paul Simon has a "Napoleon Complex".  Garfunkel (naturally) chimed in in the affirmative.  It seems that now more and more short men are being targeted with this label.  This is part of the labeling process of short men by the media.  The "psychologist" who originally coined the phrase "Napoleon Complex" was the infamous Alfred Adler, who, without the tiniest bit of experimental evidence, and completely out of his own personal bias labelled all men who were/are short in the negative.  This has never been done to any other group by a professional, (and in this case a well-known psychologist), EXCEPT short men.  Short women of course get a pass.  The bogus "Napoleon Complex" of course was a dormant phrase for decades and is now being revived by many people in the media apparently to stigmatize and wantonly label a group of people that currently have no political or social power.  Political correctness dictates that no group based on race, religion, skin color, creed, sex (women, that is), sexual orientation (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, etc.) Tall stature, baldness, fatness, etc. can be so labelled.  We believe that short men are a convenient target now that all these other "groups" cannot be targeted without repercussion.  

In the video above, which was taken from 'The Andy Williams Show' circa 1968, we see Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel and Andy Williams singing the hit 'Scarborough Fair', written by Paul Simon.  Even 47 years ago we see the sting of the lash of heightism in the cameraman's choice of close-ups.  Both Art Garfunkel and Andy Williams rate no less than 3 close-ups each, but Paul Simon gets none.  All the cameraman did was focus on Simon's fingers on the guitar strings.  Paul Simon wrote most of the songs put out by 'Simon and Garfunkel' and had a long recording career for many years after the break-up of 'Simon and Garfunkel' and yet it was Garfunkel who claimed that HE 'CREATED' a monster.  In the 'Telegraph' article Nigel Farndale states that, "he is not as tall as you might imagine", referring to Garfunkel, yet Google has Garfunkel listed as 6'0".  Pretty soon they're going to be labeling even 6-footers as "short".

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

Personal Space - How violating unspoken rules can lead to chaos - at least for you

Personal Space -How violating unspoken rules can lead to chaos-at least for you
Post published by Bakari Akil II Ph.D. on Apr 11, 2010 in Communication Central


It is a scene that you would least likely expect to see in a supermarket. But it happened. When grocery shopping or just picking up a couple of things from the store, the mission is usually to just go in and out. People buy what they need and then they are on their way. However, what happens when someone violates an unspoken agreement that we all live by, but never really talk about? How do the violated react?

That unspoken agreement is not violating the boundaries of personal space.

According to Julius Fast, author of the groundbreaking classic, "Body Language," (revised in 2002) a person who violates personal space sends the signal,
"You are a non-person, and therefore I can move in on you. You do not matter."

This is what taller and/or larger people are REALLY saying when they violate a short or small person's zone of space.

EFFECTS ON PERSONAL SPACE AND PERSON PERCEPTION

Virginia Commonwealth University

            Summary. --- following ethological theory, it was hypothesized that personal space and person perception would reflect implied threat in the form of "territorial sets" and body-size variables . . .


            It is commonly accepted that interpersonal proximity is threatening under certain conditions (Dosey & Meisels, 1969;  Horowitz, Duff, & Stratton, 1964; Kinzel, 1970; McBride, King, & James, 1965), and this stress isassociated with greater personal space.  In line with this stress effect, Bailey, Hartnett, and Gibson (1972) found the male object person produced greater subject distancing than the femaile, and Hartnett, Bailey, and Hartley (1974) found that a tall object person elicited greater distance than a short one, regardless of whether he was sitting or standing.

A RARE TALL MAN WHO UNDERSTANDS SOME OF THE DIFFICULTIES SHORT MEN FACE -



Brandon: 

It affects everything I do from the moment I wake until I go to bed.  I have no dating life at all. . . . I don't have the material of who I need to be . . . I don't like to go out in public.  I don't like to be seen.  If I apply for a job, they think I'm younger and they don't want to hire me.  They think I don't have the experience.

I didn't think there was an issue until my early 20's because you always read online about "late-bloomers".  You think eventually it's gonna happen, you don't think it's never going to happen.  I don't have a job right now, so I have no way of getting medical help.  At his point I'm desperate for answers, I need to know what's wrong with me and how to fix it.

The vast majority of short men have had a normal puberty and the prejudice they face affects everything they do from the moment they wake up until they go to bed.  Many short men have no dating life too.  If a short man applies for a job they might think he's younger as well and will not hire him.  Short men are not viewed in many cases AS men.  At least Brandon does not face the stigma of short stature in addition to his other difficulties.

TALL PRIVILEGE

Oh yes it is.  Short guy admits Tall people have "unearned advantages" over short people, but acquiesces at the end.  To wit:


There is wisdom in not only understanding what you can and can’t change, but what you should and shouldn’t change. Ultimately, there are good reasons why tall people get the advantages they do. To try and erase those justifications would end in a lobotomy of people’s mental faculties. I can’t fault women for liking what they like. I can’t hate my employer for being skeptical of my lifting ability (to which I proved their preconceptions wrong). I can’t be a happy, moral person while shaming tall people for being something they didn’t choose and cannot possibly give up.

The actual path to happiness is to understand that I was born with a cross to bear, just like everyone else, and I should ascend past my shortcomings.

Little man just can't help crawling, and even ends with heightist puns - against short people.  The webmaster commented, but our self-hating short man never replied.

BROADCAST OF MAY 4, 2015  -  DELUDED SHORT MEN PART I; DELUDED SHORT MEN PART II

The webmaster discusses two short men, little Martin Widlake and the buffoon named Kevin Hart.  Martin Widlake has a blog and is depicted below.  The short man "lean in" is also discussed whereby short men stand on the outside of a photo and "lean in", in an attempt to convey the image that they are taller than they actually are, that their short height is just an "illusion" because they're "leaning in".  When short men are in photos between two or more Tallers they have a tendency to be the only ones NOT smiling as little Martin Widlake below demonstrates.  We've also included several photos of Kevin Hart, and he's ALWAYS "leaning in".




Little Martin Widlake stiff and straight as a board, and NOT smiling while being surrounded by two Tallers who appear loose, cool, calm and relaxed.  Short people are almost always uncomfortable in photos standing next to taller or tall men; and often in those photos the tallers either intentionally or unintentionally violate the short person's zone of space, although not in this case.

Martin Widlake of Colchester England, 26 years in IT, relegated in this photo to being barely able to be seen on the tail end fringes of a photo with 3 other YOUNGER and TALLER appearing colleagues.  In looking at this photo, one would tend to think that he's not the least bit relevant in any way, shape or form, while the others stand head and shoulders above him despite his 26 years in IT.  This photo was probably set up this way so that the Taller men would appear most prominent, NOT the man who has the most years and the most experience in IT.  The younger and Taller men  would appear to come first and foremost.  Little Martin is the last and the least in this photo, and this little SOB knows it, yet he attacks us for pointing out his own version of the Stockholm Syndrome for short people.  Once again he can't even manage a smile while the others stand high and proud.  He knows full well he's being "relegated to the sidelines" so-to-speak, yet he deletes the webmasters comments on his blog and states:

    No one is listening to you . . . you barely exist on the internet . . . Still only 4 hits . . . .


Only 4 hits huh?!  As of May 14, 2015, Little Martin Widlake and his WIFE have visited this site 20 TIMES IN THE LAST 10 DAYS.  If we're so unimportant why would little Martin Widlake and family come to this site over 20 times in 10 days???  Little Martin has even contacted little Dillon Geyselaers in an attempt to recruit a psychological ally to strengthen his already pathetic ego against the webmaster's words.  Little Dillon Geyselaers is famous as the short-statured buffoon in the Freescore.com commercials.  See little Dillon Gayselaers below:





WE FINALLY FOUND A PHOTO OF LITTLE MARTIN WIDLAKE' SMILING ----

HEY MUM, I'M FAMOUS!!!




Our point with all of this is to show that when a short man's height is NOT obvious as in the above photo, when he's on a 'level playing field' so-to-speak with taller men he can feel and act like an "equal".  The Martin Widlake in the first photo is stiff, uncomfortable, and self-conscious; the Martin Widlake in the above photo is as relaxed and comfortable as the other two men.  Yet Martin Widlake and most other short men are deluded and in-denial about the effect their short stature has on their lives. 

Martin Widlake was very upset with this website displaying his photos and discussing him as we have.  He was so upset that he deleted a post on his blog by one of our people, a man named James.  James's post is below.
Dear Sir, I am a frequenter of supportfortheshort.org and I find it to be highly enlightening.  I don't believe it's creator is, as you put it, "screeching into the wind".  It would appear that all is correct and right and true.  I too, am a man of short-stature and I find supportfortheshort's insights to be very illuminating.  You stated above sir that, "it’s almost like you barely exist on the internet", when referring to the above website.  Well sir, a quick check of YOUR Alexa rankings indicates that you sir, as you put it,  "barely exist on the internet".  Railing wildly against a man and a website of wisdom and fortitude will not gain you brownie points with this poster.  No sir!
Martin Widlake banned us from posting on his blog claiming we "attacked him".  I guess the above post was "attacking him" too.  Little Martin (named after MLK) also put his wife up to contacting us in an attempt to morally disarm us.  We'll speak more on this later.  If "no one is listening to us" then why would little Martin Widlake go to the trouble of attempting to recruit Dillon Geyselaers as an ally and even get his wife to contact us?

Kevin Hart is yet another example of a short man, who unconsciously reveals his uncomfortableness with his height and yet denies it.  Below, Kevin Hart does the "lean in" in an attempt to fool people into thinking that he's taller. "Hey man, I just like look short cause I'm leaning!!!", is the image he wants to convey. Hart "leans in" in virtually all photos taken of him with others.




Even in a photo of him taken alone Hart just automatically leans to one side.  He doesn't even know that he's doing it.




In the above video Don Lemon says the only reason Kevin Hart's woman is with him is because he has a lot of money.   Even in a light and loose interview like this one at a gala event, Lemon just can't resist demeaning a short man, even if the short man is a star and a Black "brother". 



The title of the above video is:  "Why Kevin Hart isn't Afraid to Laugh at his Short Stature".  Can you imagine if race was being discussed and the video was titled:  "Why Kevin Hart isn't Afraid to Laugh at his skin color"?  Ditto for any other physical characteristic.  According to Oprah Winfrey ALL men below 6 feet in height have a "Complex".  Now it's not just short men who have a "complex" it's ALL men who aren't at least 6 feet or MORE in height.

The Napoleon Complex Theory: Why are Short People Always the Worst to put up With?

By Anti-Valentine



When I look back at my life, I tend to think back to all the people who have wronged me in some way, and I’ve always had this belief that most of them were small people; small as in… short.

snip

Anyway, they’re not all bad, short people, and some can be quite humble. But quite a number of them aren’t so good. I once had the misfortune of living next door to such a person.

snip

They’re like wolverines, or something; small, but bloody vicious, with beady eyes and sharp teeth and an even sharper tongue.

snip


I reckon the first time I ever encountered one of these creatures was when I was in preschool.


He calls himself 'Anti-Valentine'.  Bet he considers himself an 'Anti-Racist' too.

Tom Cruise Squirt Prank




Big man squirts Tom Cruise in the face while interviewing him, and it's short men who need to "grow up".  We wonder if this guy would have pulled the same "prank" had Tom Cruise been a bigger man?  The answer we keep coming up with is a resounding "NO!"  Cruise handled it very well, confronting the Big man with Tall Man Complex.  Big, Strong man then tries to run away.  Cruise calls him back.  Tom then calls a spade a spade.  If this were a short man doing this to a famous Tall actor, he probably would have been grabbed by security guards, beaten, and then arrested.  And then the media would have a field day with "Short man syndrome".  You know it and we know it.

Mickey Rooney, a super-star (and short statured adult) abused by his own family.  Was it his age or his height or both?  He also claimed others did not believe him when he spoke about it.  Having a lack of credibility in the eyes of others is a common problem short people face in the real world.  Even when it's the word of a former Hollywood Superstar.  Incidentally, many short-statured children are also abused by family members BECAUSE they're short.  Because they're small and can't fight back, and their word is often questioned.

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

Broadcast of February 14, 2015 - Zone of Space Violations III


In this broadcast Joe discusses more 'Tall people violating short people's zone of space' videos and clearly demonstrates how height - Taller Height - is the '800 pound gorilla in the room' that enables the people who make these videos to do what they're doing.  Their Tall height provides them with the confidence they need to violate other peoples' personal zone of space without fear of reprisal; people who are almost always shorter or smaller than they are.  Their confidence is developed through the respect and admiration they've received from a lifetime of reinforcement from society, from a physical advantage that they did not earn.   If the people who make these videos make a point of violating ONLY shorter or smaller people's zone of space, then it pretty well proves exactly WHO these arbitrary indignities happen to in the first place in every day situations.  This is a MUST listen-to broadcast.













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

Joe,

That guy has an aura about him.  And that aura is NOT positive.  It is negative. 
He has a negative psychic energy about him.  People like this bring others down.  That is what negative energy does.  He has an aura of lowness, sleaziness, depravity and perversion about him.  It's not difficult to see.  When I look at that photo, I see a low-life.    I see a sleazebag.  I see someone who tries to bring a legitimate individual such as yourself
down. Your efforts in exposing this guy should be applauded.
   



MATT CAMPISI THREATENED TO KILL WIFE  
alleged Campisi’s wife in Yulee Florida police complaint



"God don't make me kill her, don't make me kill her"

ON MAY 29, 2012 MATT CAMPISI, THE MAN WHO FRAUDULENTLY REPRESENTED THE WEBSITE www.nossaonline.org  AS THE LEGITIMATE INCORPORATED NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION NAMED NATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF SHORT STATURED ADULTS, INC. FOR OVER A YEAR, THREATENED TO KILL HIS WIFE ACCORDING TO POLICE REPORT AND COMPLAINT FILED BY CAMPISI'S WIFE

MATT CAMPISI’S WIFE’S FRANTIC 911 REPORT

“When I told husband he should not have his girlfriend at our house with our children there, he threatened to “F - -king kill me”, he said he would shoot me & walked to closet that held 2 guns.  When I called 911, he was pacing & saying, “God don’t make me kill her, don’t make me kill her”.

ACCORDING TO INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM THE NASSAU COUNTY FLORIDA CLERK OF COURTS, ON MAY 29, 2012, THE WIFE OF MATT CAMPISI, (THE LOUT WHO FRAUDULENTLY REPRESENTED THE WEBSITE – WWW.NOSSAONLINE.ORG AS AN INCORPORATED NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION FOR OVER A YEAR AND ATTEMPTED TO IMPLICATE THE WEBMASTER IN CAMPISI’S OWN SCAM) MADE A DESPERATE CALL TO 911, FEARING FOR HER LIFE AND THE LIVES OF HER CHILDREN. SHE THEN FILED FOR AN ORDER OF PROTECTION AGAINST HIM.  SHE CLAIMED CAMPISI THREATENED TO KILL HER.  THE INJUNCTION ORDERED CAMPISI TO SURRENDER FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION.


It was claimed by Campisi’s wife in the injunction that:

“When I told husband he should not have his girlfriend at our house with our children there, he threatened to “F - -king kill me”, he said he would shoot me & walked to closet that held 2 guns.  When I called 911, he was pacing & saying, “God don’t make me kill her, don’t make me kill her”.


Mrs. Campisi also stated in the Petition for Injunction that:

“He only uses the children as pawns to get to me and after he threatened me today I am terrified that he will snap and harm the kids to hurt me.”

Said Campisi on the same date from his now non-existent blog:

“I've never in my life been happier, more confident, or more content."


From the June 3rd 2012 NOSSA “Statement about Joel Morales” most likely written by the same Matt Campisi:

“Any child who is targeted deserves swift action by those in authority.  Inactivity on the part of the school officials, parents, law enforcement and the media sends a message that bullying of certain children is more acceptable than others. These people have the responsibility to ensure that all children are safe in the schools and, until they actually enforce their no tolerance policies for bullying, there will sadly be more victims of this heinous, inhumane practice in our schools.

NOSSA demands that all children get equal protection from bullying; short kids shouldn't have to be expendable!”


The news about NOSSA Scam Artist Matt Campisi just gets worse and worse.  The utter gall and effrontery of the above statements by Campisi is just beyond belief.  Just when we think we've heard the worst about this sack of manure, he takes it to the next level.  But really, we shouldn't be too surprised about this, considering we're dealing with a liar, sociopath, petty scam artist, and possibly a sexually perverted low - grade porn performer too.

This photo is of a young woman with 3 "friends".  The two guys to either side of her insisted on her being in the middle depicted the way she is.  She willingly acceded to their demands.  The short woman in the photo claims to choose friends "based on personality rather than height".

Joe goes into full gear in this broadcast as he begins with a powerful soliloquy on how heightism against short people is not "all in your mind" as people will tell you.  He de-constructs the idea that heightism is some sort of a "Social Construct" and some sort of product of "Western society" and points out that it exists everywhere.  He then points out the inconsistencies of poster "Geoffrey Arnold" of reddit/r/short and even points out how people like Laura Butera (a feminist who wrote "Height Power and Gender:  Politicizing the Measured Body" injects feminism in her paper to blame alleged White male patriarchy for tall women discriminating against short women!  Joe then leads a no-holds barred counterattack on folks like reddit Garmins, reddit White knights, deluded short men and the fact that when people harass, discriminate, and even assault short people, they can usually expect no assistance even from friends and family.  They really get into the nitty-gritty of all the wrongs that short people tolerate in society without a voice and almost entirely without back-up.  Another end-of-the year MUST listen to!

This is the first broadcast in a series of broadcasts where Joe leaves 'No Holds Barred' in his summation of the year's events in the world of height bigotry, and really lays it on the line for the short-statured.  Joe is especially blunt in articulating the tremendous opposition the Short-statured face in society and really attacks back at the people who hate short people.  A broadcast that may very well start something for Short-statured people.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis calls Johnny Manziel a 'midget'  (NEW)

By: Nate Scott    December 8, 2014 8:39 pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis referred to Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel as a ‘midget’ during an interview on WLW-AM in Cincinnati.

Lewis was asked by the hosts how the Bengals planned on dealing with the possibility of Manziel starting at quarterback, and Lewis dismissed it.

“You gotta go defend the offense. You don’t defend the player,” Lewis said. He paused, then added: “Particularly a midget.”


We believe that people are getting a sense now of just WHO can be wantonly disparaged, and that group is short people, particularly short men.  And who and what is considered short is now getting absurd.  Fran Tarkenton was/is 6 feet in height.  No one ever called him a "midget", especially a Coach of another team.  Nonetheless, it seems that now 6-footers are considered "midgets". Don't worry.  It's gonna get worse; and it is getting worse as we speak.

Eric Garner’s daughter on dad’s death: ‘This is not a black and white issue’
 
By Cheryl K. Chumley - The Washington Times - Friday, December 5, 2014


Erica Garner, the daughter of Eric Garner — who died after he was put in a police chokehold on the streets of New York — said it wasn’t so much racism but officer Daniel Pantaleo’s pride that escalated the altercation and led to a fatal conclusion.

“This is not a black and white issue,”
she said, in an interview with Don Lemon on CNN.

Mr. Lemon then asked again if she thought race played any part in her dad’s death.

“I really doubt it,” Ms. Garner said, Mediaite reported. “It was about the officer’s pride. It was about my father being 6‘4” and 350 pounds and he wants to be the top cop that brings a big man down.”

Ms. Garner also said that she won’t be able to forgive Mr. Pantaleo, and called for him to admit his fault.


Huge men threatening police:  Eric Garner (6'4" 350 pounds) and Michael Brown (6'4" 290 pounds).  No girl, it wasn't "about the officer's pride".  It was about BIG MEN who think that they can do anything and get away with anything.  Big men pose a REAL PHYSICAL THREAT, and some of them are not afraid to threaten and attack.  Most intelligent people support the decision of the two Grand Jury's in both the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases.

From Reddit:  Does anyone remember the time that Harvard's Implicit Association Test (IAT) included height, but then the results showed a pervasive bias equal to that of gender and race and so the test was mysteriously pulled down, never to be seen again? . . . . I do.  -- Geoffrey Arnold


This is what we believe happened:  In 2008 the Director of 'S&M:  Short and Male' had contact with the folks at the IAT and specifically asked them to post an IAT for height so that it's appearance would coincide with the documentary that he just made.  It was only up there a few months and was quickly taken down, no doubt because it wasn't seen to be "important enough" to keep there by the makers of the IAT, most notably Mazarin Banaji and Brian Nosek two Ph.D's one of whom I interviewed and who skirted the question when I asked him why the IAT for height was no longer displayed.  He knew damn well why he put it up - because of a request by a film director - and he knew damn well why he took it down - because it was meant to be temporary to begin with.  Take a look at all the current IAT's -

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


Even weight - almost always a personal choice - has an IAT.  This is how seriously the people at the Harvard IAT take prejudice against the short, particularly short men.  Is it any wonder that heightism is so pervasive and celebrated?

MICHAEL BROWN - A 6'4" 290 LB. "GENTLE GIANT"?







We're not going to debate the racial aspects of the Michael Brown case; however we will point out the SIZE ASPECTS of it.  Michael Brown was only 18 years old.  He was also 6'4" and close to 300 pounds, making him larger than the average NFL defensive end.  Michael Brown apparently used his tremendous size to steal from a convenience store, bully, and intimidate a defenseless convenience store worker with apparently no more thought than stepping on an ant on the sidewalk, and then just walk out of the store with his booty.  The poor dear was later shot and killed by Ferguson Missouri police officer Darren Wilson.  A Grand Jury has now refused to indict Wilson in the shooting.

IS NOSSA SCAM ARTIST MATT CAMPISI STILL AT IT???



Matt Campisi filming in his own closet



Two years after NOSSA allegedly folded, the New York State Secretary of State’s Office has National Organization of Short statured Adults, Inc. still listed as an active corporation.  See here.  In 2005 Campisi fraudulently represented the website www.nossaonline.org as a legitimate incorporated non-profit organization when it was not.  The fraud continued till almost 2007 until we discovered it and made complaints to state agencies.  Campisi then formed the previously fake incorporated non-profit and in addition, made false statements to at least one state agency in and attempt to lay the blame at our feet!!!  In 2008 Campisi was interviewed by the hardcore porn site ‘Naughtyamerica.com’ on a page loaded with hardcore images leading us to believe that Campisi was or is a hardcore Porn performer.  Campisi’s past has seemingly been a twisted tale of lies, deception, perpetual flight, and possible perversion.

NOW GENERAL ELECTRIC GETS ON THE 'USE SHORT MEN AS TALL MENS' SERVANTS' ADVERTISING BANDWAGON.



The tall guy in the above commercial is Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park).  The short guy depicted in this commercial is not only short, but bald, fat, homely, appears to be slightly mis-shapen and also appears angry.   The effect these types of images has on the minds of viewers, especially young ones, is to assist them in associating negative physical and psychological characteristics with short stature, and to enhance the already acceptable and celebrated form of bigotry known as Heightism.  At the end we can see the short guy servant actually trying to smile through his apparent anger.  His anger no doubt is because he has a Napoleon Complex as all short men do, which is the image that this commercial is apparently trying to convey in our opinion.  Goldblum is listed on IMDB as being 6'4 1/2".  Goldblums' height is one of three pieces of information at the top of his IMDB page directly under his date of birth and name, which tends to lead us to believe that the people who put this information there value a persons' height very highly. 
Depictions of short men in commercials by large corporations and businesses of all types as buffoons, servants, or acting foolishly is becoming more and more common in our "enlightened" 21st Century.

Shortness can increase the risk of dementia

BEING short can dramatically increase the risk of dying from dementia in later life, a study has found.
By: Jo Willey
Published: Tue, November 4, 2014


Research has found that the vertically-challenged are at greater risk of being killed by the devastating brain disease.

And it is short men who fare worst.

Experts say the findings highlight the importance of living a healthy lifestyle from a long aged to protect against and minimise the impact of the condition.

Senior author, Dr David Batty, of the Department of Epidemiology & Public Health at University College London, said: "Short height in itself of course does not 'cause' dementia.

"Rather, height captures a number of early life factors, including early-life illness, adversity, poor nutrition, and psychosocial stress, and so allows us to examine the effect of these factors on dementia more closely.
"

    Short height in itself of course does not 'cause' dementia

If short height doesn't 'cause' dementia, then why does the author of this article title the article, "Shortness can increase the risk of dementia"???

Get your head out of the sand.

COACH COREY WAYNE THINKS SHORT MEN DESERVE TO DIE BECAUSE OF THEIR "INSECURITIES"




“I even had a high school buddy that was like that, good-looking dude, everybody liked him, he was only like 5’1”, 5’2”, and he was scrappy, he was always getting into fights, like he’d be in a bar somebody would bump into him, he’d yell at him, “hey, what the hell!” and a fight would ensue and I remember one time this was probably, um, God, this is a little over 20 years ago, probably about 21 years ago, this was when, he was about 3 years younger than me, we all went to the same high school, I used to see him out, uh downtown area that kind a thing, and I remember hanging out having some beers with him, shootin’ the shit, and cause he hung out with a lot of the same people that I did, we had similar friends in common.  And I remember he was like in a bar up at Florida State University he had too much to drink and some other guy bumped into him, and anyway, he starts fighting with the guy, and they went outside, and the dude hit him, and just like knocked him out cold, and as he fell back his head hit the pavement, and fuckin’ killed him.  And two weeks later after having a beer with him, I was going to a funeral.  And that’s obviously a pretty extreme example, and this was a guy who was insecure about himself.  And he let his insecurities get the best of him, and it cost him his life.

You’re some friend aren’t you?  You’re friend gets his zone of space violated, he gets harassed, bullied, and then he gets murdered by someone much bigger I assume, and your response to this is, "he let his insecurities get the best of him, and it cost him his life".  Now you witnessed this didn’t you?  Did you testify at the Big Man’s trial, that is, if there was a trial?  Big men disposing of little men usually is no big deal I understand, (and the Police are usually complicit in this universal attitude) but I have a question or two for Big Man Coach Corey Wayne; did you do a job on your friend and support Your Fellow Big Man on the witness stand?  Did you excoriate your "friend" in court and convey the image to the jury that he "was asking for trouble"?  I also noticed that you seemed to be smiling as you said that your friends’ insecurities cost him his life.  With friends like you, who needs enemies right?  This is crux of the problem.  Right here.  Assholes like this are giving people advice.  Assholes like Coach Corey Wayne are the ones who need advice - STRONG ADVICE.  We asked COACH COREY WAYNE  to take part in an interview on this website; as expected we received no response.  Please see our Twitter account - here.  Coach Corey Wayne - the Asshole who is too cowardly to be interviewed on this website has other Youtube videos:

Be A Man, Not A pussy   (When his "friend" DIDN'T act like a "Pussy", the first thing Coach Corey Wayne did was accuse him of having a "short man syndrome")
Be A Man, Stand Up For Yourself   (When his "friend" stood up for himself, the first thing Coach Corey Wayne did was blame his friend for being murdered)

We understand who is the Pussy and just WHO cannot stand up for himself, and that is Coach Corey "PUSSY" Wayne.

The Flawed Stigma of Short Men in America
  

By Jon Fortenbury August 28, 2014


If the woman’s alone, Jared Gerleman finds it a lot easier to approach her.

“When she’s out with a big group of people, she may start worrying about what her friends tell her or think,” said Gerleman, who lives in Las Vegas.

snip

“I’ve been rejected so many times,” said Gerleman, who just started a long-distance relationship with a five-foot-three woman he met on Tinder. “I get 20 no’s for every one yes.”

snip

But the challenges of short men aren't slight, nor are they based on sound reasoning. It's a flat-out discrimination that very few are trying to stop.

snip

In the workforce, people don’t often come out and say “I’m not hiring you because of height,” but the correlations seem too strong to ignore. And sometimes, they do say that, like in the case of Gerleman. After getting turned down for an office supervisor job (which didn’t require reaching any items on the top shelf), he found out later that the hiring manager told his supervisor that she didn’t hire him because of his height.

Read more . . .

We've known this all along.  And we don't need university studies to tell us what we already know to be true.

Don't Bring A Pizza To A Fist Fight



What it really should say is, 'Big guy picks the wrong short guy'. The segment speaks for itself, but this segment depicts a Tall kid/guy going up to a short guy shaking his hand in friendship, and then, wantonly and completely out of the blue slaping the short guy in the face with a piece of pizza. For someone to do this, he MUST expect no response on the part of the victim; he must be close to 100% confident that he's going to get away with it. What the Tall Kid/guy didn't expect was the just as wanton and out of the blue straight left to his face by the short guy. One can argue that such a response was uncalled for as the Big guy did no violence to the short man. But this is the kind of incident that short people are very often the victim of, due to the fact that the Taller usually has a "You can't beat them up" attitude. This incident is about more than just getting a little tomato sauce on ones face. This is just a small example of the wanton and free abuse of those who are perceived to be incapable of fighting back. In this case, unfortunately, for the tall guy, the short guy DID something to defend his dignity. He, like the Taller, waited until he had the advantage, that is, waited until his tormentor was seated and couldn't fight back effectively and then punched him in the face. Of course, this was an aberration. In the vast majority of incidents like this the short or small man just walks away with his tail between his legs, while everyone laughs at his expense. Of course, this is only one example of the many indignities, assaults, and wanton attempts at humiliation of the short man. The tall guy may have gotten what he deserved. But what about the other 99.99% of the time when the short man just tolerates his fate?
