Well, they're people. They're also shorter than I am. Short women can also be quite attractive in a way (or not; depends on the case).

I do make jokes about shorter people that I know (assuming they understand the humor of course).

Well average height may or may not be taller than me, so maybe it is about you. **$hakes fist @Axume***

I am 5'9" normally. 5'11" when my hair is up. lol



Define tall. How short are you, spurge? :P I'm either 6'0 or 6'1, and I sometimes feel weird talking to people who are too much shorter than me. I feel my body involuntarily trying to slump over, lol. I don't particularly like having to look down at people. Makes me feel weirdly condescending. I've found that if someone is 5'10 or taller I pretty much perceive them as the same height as myself, though.

society generally favors tall people, and bigger things are generally viewed as better. to a degree having something of a bigger size can be a status symbol. having a 50 inch tv is respected a lot more than having a 20 inch tv. having more money is better than having less money. and being taller is favored over being short. I myself am a 5'7" male, meaning i just hit the average height of men. i envy people that are taller than me, the 6' and above people specifically, but i cant put down anyone shorter than me because while i am not as short as them, i still know the pain.

5'7 is below average where I'm from. I used to have nightmares of growing up to be your height back when I was 16 and 5'5. Back then I cared so much about height. These days it doesn't bother me too much. I wonder why. 



Society seems to think tall people are superior. Studies have shown that taller individuals make more money on average. Taller men are rated more attractive by females.

That being said these bias that society has benefiting taller people are not so large that they can't be overcome. Bruno Mars is 5'5 and doing just great.

I'm short myself and do have height envy.



 

My Real Redneck friends


I'm like 186cm tall, and honestly, i kinda do feel good when i'm around someone shorter than me, even my aunts, uncles and parents. My boyfriend is around 175cm and i could never date someone taller than me lol



No short people are superior since the best console and game developers are Japanese. And Japanese are on average shorter than Africans, Americans and Europeans.

 

Edit

I am a disgrace for my nation though, since I am Dutch and only 175cm. Dutch people are supposed to be one of the longest natonalities in the world.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar
