It is basically saying that because we short men are short, we need to lower our standards to get dates and women. I am not sure why they would include this under a free dog sign. If I seen that I would let my dog *bleep* in front of it.

Crap like this really bugs me because it is beyond a joke it is straight up stereotyping. Cause you know all "short men" lower their standards and lack confidence.

Not sure what it worse... saying something like this on a sign calling out short men everywhere or putting the dogs before it.

1000% agree. Stereotyping is part of the reason fat, short, ect jokes are around. People assume all short men lack self worth and all fat people are lazy. I know a woman who eats better than most and still is over weight. She is one of the most active people I know but people still rag on her about being lazy.

Assuming things needs to stop and I know it wont because most of us do, some of us are worse than others. We just need to learn not to say things, even if we think them.

People will never stop assuming. It is in our nature to assume and figure out the "whys"... We just need to learn that the world doesn't revolve around us, so to speak.

Yeah but I know so many people who are all about the "I" "Me" "My"... Most of us are self centered. Just the way it is.
