*shrug*  So, date short girls.
Tsk, tsk, Joseph; you're jumping to conclusions. And trivializing the issue. That strategy doesn't work; a woman's height has no bearing on the subject; short women are just as likely to be obsessed with tall men as tall women are. As a matter of fact, as a general rule, it seems that they are even MORE likely to insist on dating only extremely tall guys. I know that may seem counterintuitive, but it's nonetheless the case.

I don't quite understand where this fetish comes from, but it's quite prevalent, and extremely strong. If I recall correctly, you're fairly tall, aren't you? In that case, I would expect you would probably never have encountered the issue. Understandable. (And lucky you.)

I've seen several girls who don't want to date guys over 5'6" or so, on personals sites.  They're short (4'10" or 5' or so), and they don't want anyone who's too much taller.  There are all sorts out there.

I'm about 6'1", yes.  Not really tall, but slightly above average.

 

I'm trivializing the issue because it had nothing to do with what we were talking about previously.  If Michael Pianko only wants to date women who are shaped like Barbie dolls, that's his right.  Likewise, if women only want to date tall men, I'm not going to tell them they can't.

What we were jumping all over him for was that he was using just about the most insulting words possible to describe his preference.

I think I should be superfical in intellectual ways.  Like if a woman told me her favorite book was the Bible or the Twilight books I's tell her I can't date her.
Hmm, maybe she just likes horrifying literature?

What are the odds that a sweet, intelligent and articulate woman reads really bad books?

 

Is she reading them ironically?

Joseph is right, 6'1" isn't all that tall anymore, it's pretty average actually. (but maybe this is because out of my 4 closest friends- 2 are girls and are 5'8 and 5'10. 2 are guys and stand at 6'5, and 6'5 1/2. All but one were childhood friends and short when I met them... I still haven't come to terms wit the fact my best and closest friend is 10 inches taller. lol, I still think I can beat him at everything)

 

 

Noah-

I have to agree... because chances are, if they list the Bible as a favorite, they've never read it. And if they list twilight... they've most likely never read another book in their life. Surely the horrid writing is obvious to any literate would-be fans?

Personally, I enjoy Twilight as a display of the horrifying social norms within the Mormon Church.  The bit about adult werewolves (who are all male) finding their 'soul-mate' when she's 1 or 2 years old, then grooming her into the perfect mate as she grows up ...

 

Well, it's really, really fucking creepy, and it's good to see Mormons displaying that sort of thing to the public.  Maybe if the public was more aware of that sort of thing, as a counterpoint to the recent Mormon propaganda ads, they would wise up about the Mormon Church.  The FLDS Church is an extreme version of the official Mormon Church, but the mainstream Mormon Church is freaking psycho, too.

 

As for the Bible ... know thine enemy.  I've read it cover-to-cover.

 

Besides, I like a devious twist in my sweet, intelligent, articulate women.

Well, 6'5" is WAY the hell above average.  I think the average height for men is 5'8" or 5'9", but that's including Asian and Latino men, who are well below that, on average.  Average for white males is probably 5'10" or 5'11".

 

How tall are you anyway, Laura?

I'm right around 5'7" (way taller than I expected to be, my mother was 4'11")

Cool, good stopping point.  Once a girl hits 5'10" or so, it starts making snuggling difficult.  Puts her head up too high when she's sitting in my lap.  Not that I'd discriminate against a girl that tall, if I liked her, but we're talking pure, arbitrary preferences here.
I can see what you're saying. It's not that it actually something to judge a person on, but a nice attribute if they meet the criteria. I have a preference for darker hair over blonde or red. *shrug*, doesn't mean I'd discriminate against the others.
