Interesting how everybody acknowledges that women like tall men, and men like shorter women, for evolutionary reasons, but other gender differences(men being more aggressive and hence earning more money for instance) are normally seen as politically incorrect...

They were all below 5' 7''. It is just people who are stupid enough to care about what other materialistic/shallow people say. Someone who judges you on height is probably not worth your time. Maybe women could say that because they dont find someone shorter sexually attractive and that's fine. But if someone doesn't give you a job because you are short or assumes you won't succeed in life because of height he is a ****ing douche. Period.
Robert Downey Jr. is 5'8''. Good night.
Women don't hate short men, they just don't want to be with a guy shorter than them. But there are also may short girls, so short men shouldn't think of their height as an issue.
Because a lot of women are *****y and selfish most women don't find short men attractive and so don't have much time for short men. Not all of them obviously but some of them.
It's actually rather sad, and hypocritical. Guys get roasted for mugging off girls or not liking girls with certain features which are no fault of their own. Though, stumpy midget girls aren't that appealing either.
I can't stand people who think the world is out to get them over a specific attribute/generally just very insecure. Men and insecurity can get really ugly in a relationship.
I don't want to generalise, but that's just from my experience.
Height doesn't bother me that much. Looks in general don't matter to me that much. I've never felt 'repulsed' by a male or disgusted by them, never mind based on their physical appearance.
I can't speak for others, but I am not a very calculated person when it comes to attraction or who I'd date and not date. I don't have some long list of physical attributes that need to be met, or specific dominant personality traits, or that they must have a job, a car, etc. I am quite a simple person in that respect, and I think a lot of people are. They don't restrict themselves, they let things develop organically.
It's not in my nature at all to criticise someone for how they look. If someone looks odd my brain might register it, but that's where it ends. This probably comes from how badly I took criticisms of how I looked when I was younger.
I feel like some highly insecure guys really need to hear this and know that it's the truth. You shouldn't base your idea on females based off of some mentally immature/underdeveloped person in high school, or whatever.
I'm accustomed to guys being taller than me, but it isn't really something that I take notice of. For me to be properly physically attracted to someone, I have to have known them for a while, and my liking of their personality and who they are kind of informs the physical attraction, in a way. At least for guys I just think that the attraction towards them has a lot of psychological elements as opposed to some raw caveman-like attraction based solely on their physical appearance.
I'm probably rambling a lot here.
