Why are Latina women not as heightist as white and black women?
post #1

Looking back on my dating history, I notice that Latinas were always willing to date me and were heavily attracted to me (and of course I'm always attracted to them. They are my top preference). It's usually black women who call me out on my height and make very negative comments about it. White women did this sometimes also, but they're not as vocal and I seem to have little problem attracting white women (of all heights).

Why do you think Latinas are more accepting of short guys? And I mean both tall and short Latinas didn't have height at the top of their list.

A lot of it has to do with romantic culture (as in romance languages). A man is defined by his character and what he brings to the table. Height is just a bonus. I noticed this with Latinas as well. It's bullshit anglo culture that's obsessed with everything being big. Just look at the language.

Can confirm. Have dated plenty of Dominican women and height comments were always playful. If a guy was crap then height was never tied into the occasion (hearing women speaking about their exs

Plenty of latin men are short is probably why. If a woman grows up with a short father maybe she'll be less biased to shorter guys?

I would bet that has a lot to do with it.

FYI it's Latina, Latin Women or Hispanic. "Latina Women" is redundant because the "a" at the end of Latina signifies "Women".

I know this and should've proofread my title before posting. I stand corrected smiley

When I was in High School, it was always the black women who would remind me everyday I was short and worthless because of it. Spanish women didn't seem to care that I was short.
