Bullying
Insulted
post #1

Hi guys,

 

This happened to me awhile ago but I feel I need to get it off my chest. After the great responses I got about the former cop who refused to meet me after she found out right before we met that I was shorter/smaller than her, I feel that you guys can relate to this experience.

I was taking this technical course in university and there was this middle aged woman in it. She said she had a boyfriend so I knew she was off limits--she was even living with him. There was this huge guy in my class, 6'2 caribbean guy who dated professional models. I saw her flirting with him a few times.

After a few months the course was over and we all met in a bar. Someone in the bar mentioned that he had the woman's number in his phone--he had it so he could organize the get together. I asked her if I could have her phone number. She asked me why. I said so we could get together. Bad move. I think she thought I meant that she and I could hook up. Later on in the evening she told me I was too short and far for her and I still rented and did not own my own property. I was shocked. I tried telling her nicely that it was a misunderstanding and that I was not interested in her. She expressed interest in having sex with the caribbean guy--he did not arrive yet. I felt this was an odd thing to say out loud to a group of people. Later on when we went to a club, the caribbean guy asked the woman why was height so important to women. She then grabbed me and said she felt like a mother holding a small guy. I was embarrassed. I wish I had told her to screw off.

I initially asked for her phone number so I could organize the next get together and contact her just to clarify.

I know it's not popular, but if confronted with crappy situations like these, I use my sarcastic wit. It makes no sense to allow people to insult and think that it's "natural" to do so because it's "valid".

A lot of women are like this and instead of being up front and honest, they want to "spare our feelings". I want the truth. I hate being beat around the bush with crap like this.

Some women are more about looks than the average male and that is really telling of the times. I would have probably ended up in jail if I seen a woman do that to a shorter man. I am sick of it.

Not sure what you mean. How did this woman spare my feelings?

Why is it that when this happens, a lot of short guys don't speak up about it? Why didn't you say anything?

We have two choices in these situations...say nothing and deal, which looks pretty weak...or say something and be accused of having "short man syndrome". When a short guy gets angry, it's ALWAYS because we have a complex, and not at all because, you know, it was a legit shitty thing that would have pissed off anyone with some pride. I generally take the say nothing route, because no comeback will ever really do anything other than make you look like a pissed off short dude.

This is why heightism is accepted and people don't take short guys seriously, because few people if no one challenges it. Speak up man!

If we speak up we have the "Napoleon Complex". If we do nothing, we are weak and insecure. It is a catch 22 my friend.
