    Compared to all the people here saying youre a manlet or whatever if youre under 6ft i dont think its a poor post.
    I think they're just taking the piss. The premise of the post is fine, I suppose I should have said poor examples. If there was some examples of successful people of history who were genuinely short then it would be better, I'm sure there's some around.

    I am. :flutter: Though I'm not 100% Satanist. I think my views are more a Satanism-humanism-individualism hybrid. Although, Satanism can be considered a humanism-individualism hybrid.

    Imagine someone who isn't afraid to indulge in their temptations/desires but still knows their boundaries and holds a strict(ish) moral compass. That's sort of what a Satanist is. They're not devil worshippers. The devil is just a representation of how a person should act, i.e. opposing abstinence and all things oppressive. For example, some religions say don't be selfish at all and always put others before you whereas Satanism encourages you to tend to your selfish desires as long as you're not harming others. The only time you can harm anyone is if someone threatens you ("destroy them" is what one of the Satanic rules says) otherwise you do not touch anyone who isn't a threat to you. It's very "eye for an eye" or "treat others as you would like to be treated". In Satanism you can't let yourself go out of control - you can indulge in whatever you want (as long as it doesn't harm anyone), but you shouldn't let indulgence turn into compulsion. It all comes down to doing what you want to do without harming anyone, especially yourself.

    It's a nice "philosophy". I wouldn't go as far as to call it a religion, but I do prefer it to any religion I've come across so far because instead of making you worship some kind of being, you're encouraged to "worship" yourself in the sense that you focus on making yourself a better person. Plus it places more emphasis on equality and not harming others, and it's generally a hell of a lot nicer than religion. One of the other rules is that you don't harm little children. I love that.
    Oh I get it now....LOOOOOOL. I don't think you can call it Satanism though, for example, being selfish is just that, you're being selfish. And going after your desires by having sex before marriage for example, is just that, you're going after your desires. And not harming little children, or not harming an innocent person is just very normal. The law tells us we can't do this, so we don't.

    Short guys Pahahahaha its unfortunate.

    I guess you look much more muscular than taller guys if you both work out the same about and eat the same.
    Other than that, being tall will disqualify you from 95% of African-American women, 60-70% of White women but dw Asian women will take you.

    manlets need to accept their height and lower their standards because us tall guys will have the cream of the crop of the women.

    I'm 6' 3'' so this doesn't affect me ... although having said that I know some guys who are under 5' 8 who could literally kill me if they wanted to. Sometimes it's the short guys who are the ones you have to be most cautious of!

    Do you realise what happened to tall guys who became too big a bully in ye olden days? The shorter guys ganged up on him when he was alone, fishing or something and buried a hatchet in the back of his head. That's why we're not all 6'6" or whatever.

    i am indian, and your mate probably wishes he was that height because he knows that's around the perfect height and therefore would be more attractive to girls.
