    ngl I am judged on height. Often being called 'too tall'

    someone literally tells me everyday that I 'block out the sun'

    sure it's just banter but there's truth to the prejudice against tall girls *shrug*

    I don't 100% agree with the OP.

    You see "big is beautiful" for females and that Men are shallow if they don't want to date bigger girls. That a woman can get any man despite her size.

    I've never seen anything positive about male weight.

    But like others have commented, men are judged more on height.

    You sort of accepted this 'prejudice' and validated it by calling it banter though. Nothing wrong with tall girls myself being a tall men , though I barely see girls as tall or taller then me.

    Yes, this can be an issue for women, too. It is terrible that we are all judged on something!

    So all you want from a woman is for her to look good ?
    Nothing wrong with that.

    if its by guys i think its probably borne out of insecurity that they are too short for you so you won't date them

    It's called sexual dimorphism. Large humans are attracted to smaller humans and vice versa. In the majority of cultural contexts the smaller is the female and the larger is the male.

    You do see the opposite as the norm in some African tribal cultures and you see it happen sometimes in Western society, but in the case of Western society it is more that both partners are at the bottom of the physical-social hierarchy as in fat female with skinny man.
