Usually when I come across an online post from a major outlet that mentions a guy’s shorter height the article turns out to be a shot at short men. Even when they think they are trying to be complimentary it’s usually a back-handed compliment that actually insinuates that being short is somehow inferior to being tall.
Hey guess what, in our imperfect world it is. Sure there are plenty of exceptions but overall women prefer taller men, taller men earn more and get ahead easier in the workplace and it’s just plain hard to reach those high shelves in the kitchen. The world is also unfair to women, the overweight, older individuals, the poor, non-heterosexuals, and minorities.
At the end of the day most of us who are short have learned to embrace it and love who we are. I happily turned it into a business opportunity. The last thing we need is the popular press taking cheep shots just because they need to push out so many meaningless pieces of material to fill their web pages and blogs so when there is a little love for the short man and a celebration of just how awesome he can be I want to take a moment and acknowledge it. And yes, we have a sense of humor and know how it looks when we are standing next to an extremely attractive, extremely tall women. I don’t think Bruno Mars is complaining about any of the company he is keeping in these pictures and I’ll bet those women are pretty happy to be next to him. Funny how one of the worlds hottest musicians and entertainers is one of the shortest. Perhaps the world should stop looking over our heads into the distance for the next great thing and glance down a bit.
