Re: Heightism Short Guys Finish Last

As a short woman, I think its not only short guys. If they are
outspoken, as many of my friends are, short women often get labelled
as "pushy." This is a pet project of mine. It would be very good to
document "heightism" and use this to educate others. BTW, as the
general population continues to grow taller because of better diets,
those who are shorter are even more noticable (or overlooked).

Thanks for passing this on!
