    Tall only works if you're good looking though to be fair to smaller people.

    I'm sure a smaller guy that is good looking is better than a tall guy who is ugly.

    Do you have the looks to go with it though?

    I am 5.8. I agree it is better to be tall. Being good looking is meaningless. If you are tall you can protect people better than a smaller man. Though if you are a giant then you just look weird.

    Depends what you mean by protect. If you're talking self defence, martial arts does not rely on height, neither does knowing how to use a bladed weapon.

    They don't have weight classes to protect the big guy do they. You can't carry blades, it is illegal. Apart from a 3 inch flip knife with no guard, which is more like to cut your hand than the other person.

    Also I am not just talking about self defence. I mean things like being pushed about on a bus or train.

    Push them back. Being small doesn't mean you're weak. See: Anton Kraft.

    No you don't push back. You just stand their and take it, protecting the women you are with.

    Your attitude is the cause for you being pushed in the first place.

    Why? Can't women protect themselves? Why are you with a woman specifically anyway in this situation?
