    God what is this TSR obsession with height?

    Yeah but this was just general curiosity.

    Not obsessing about what is attractive and what is not.

    why? surely if you're a girl then the cultural norm is reversed?

    +as a guy I'd rather be 7' although it wouldn't be very good. but being 5' would be worse regarding my chances in life.

    I don't like the idea of people being so much taller than me at 5ft

    yeah but don't you think the discrimination towards you, especially as a woman, would be far far worse at 7'? I mean, why is having people taller than you necessarily bad? surely it's pretty common for girls to be shorter than most guys anyway?

    Meh, I don't really care, if people would want to discriminate against me that's their problem, plus I could just steal their stuff and hold it up high so they couldn't reach it mwuhahahaha

    you don't care, for example, about finding a male partner? I understand that it would be fun to screw around with people but surely other concerns trump that in all seriousness? I mean, it would be difficult for even a man at 7' to find a female partner

    Sorry but this is actually a no brainer.

    It can only be 5feet.

    Being seven feet tall would be fraught with all kinds of medical and of course practical problems and anyone who would want to be noticed every single time they are in public for their whole life is an utter fool.

    Never ever underestimate the sheer bliss of being able to go out for a quiet drink or whatnot.

    As for being unattractive to women.

    Yep,that's obviously a biggie.

    You may well have to accept that you are never going to get the girl of your dreams .

    But,honestly,knowing this really can be a blessing in disguise. It means you can devote your time to becoming really good at whatever it is that you have a passion about (solong as it's not basketball ) .

    You are free to make the most of your abilities and I so doing hopefully still end up getting the girl.


    Just make sure you don't go mad and invade Russia.


    Cheers


    (Edit I apologise for only seeing this question from a male perspective but I assume no woman would want to be 7 feet tall?)

    It would probably be more difficult but my main goal in life is definitely not to find a partner, I'm sure I'd find someone eventually and I'd just focus on something I wanted to do with my life anyway
