    Look at Prince he had a lot of women. You can make up for yr height in other ways.
    he used his big fat wallet as a platform to stand on though, didn't he :lol: do fat women need to do that?

    My boyfriend is roughly the same height as me.

    My ex was 6'5. I would not date that tall again because it makes them bad in bed it seems Constant complaining that their back hurts and unable to do basic positions No rhythm either but I think that was just him.
    Ouch

    Height isn't your issue. Not sure where you live but most women are under 6 ft...
    He lives on Pandora (Avatar)
    ...or in Rivendell, LOTR (I presume Elves are tall?)
    ...or he's Wun Wun from Game of Thrones.

    It's because for centuries, the male dominance within western culture perpetuated stereotypes and prejudices against women as second class. Women were forced to rely on men for their very lives and liberty.

    The cultural/social stigmatism that came with it has left a legacy of gender segregation in many professions and you gave a prime list of those.

    We are going through a cultural transition and true equality is right to be forced in order for it to become established. One could argue it is misappropriated and abused by a minority who seek privilege without merit, but this is a minority - albeit one that has a tangible impact.

    At some point there will be no need for feminism (which incidentally simply seeks equality for both sexes) because gender inequality will no longer be an issue.
    You can't force true equality by treating half of the population like quasi-children, that's what I'm saying. This is why far more patriarchal countries have better outcomes than Sweden itself, the gender feminist utopia. My country has almost nonexistent welfare and terrible divorce laws for the lower income/non-working partner yet we have far more women going into STEM, ''manly careers'', the wage gap is lower and women don't complain about ''microagressions'', they just get on with life. This is a country where the traditional/religious blends with ''women as sex objects'' to form an absolute third wave feminism nightmare. Page 3? I raise you porn magz, no cover whatsoever, on newsstands in the middle of the street. We also have women sweeping streets and collecting rubbish, something I have never seen in the UK. Why? They are forced to do it, they don't have the quasi-children safety net society and the state offers women in the West.

    You don't make women more equal through social engineering and by pampering them like overgrown children, you do it by dropping them on their heads, just like you do with men. A woman breaking the law here would be treated like an adult, unlike in the UK. Have the book thrown at her. Oh btw, 75% of judges are female. Why? Because they had the equality of opportunity. Even in a society that still has societal gender guidelines forged thousands of years ago that's all it takes. The pay gap in the private sector is about 2% while in far more ''progressive'' nations it's almost 25%. Work like a man, get paid like one. Stop moaning, demanding privilege and get on with it.

    The answer is to grow a thick skin, ignore what anyone says and simply get on with life.

    If you allow yourself to be insulted and hurt by comments, you have handed power and control of your life over to trolls.

    Not good.

    LOOOOOL. i personally don't. i never really get insulted tbh; i've always been described as a laid back character. however, this matter insults people i've know with the issue, so i try to defend them and what they go through

    thanks for the advice. i appreciate it

    There is nothing you can do about height but most fat people are that way because of lifestyle choices. Women who want tall guys while constantly moaning about how shallow men are because they don't want ''real women'' (aka fat azzez) are huge hypocrites. That is all.
    I'd rather be short than fat.

    No you'd rather be fat than short because you can lose fat if you exercise but you can't just gain height.

    I totally agree with this and I understand your pain but bare in mind it works both ways too, guys saying no to me because I was taller than them for one
    Idiots, taller girls are way better.

    The thing with dating is your perfectly at liberty discriminate on what ever basis you want and to find who you find attractive or not.

    What isn't good is to make generally offensive comments about people's appearance when it's really nothing to do with you. Nor to create irrational comparisons between things.
