Acheivements and sexual attraction are two different thing. When it comes to achievements you are in control. When it comes to sexual attraction that is where short men is at a disadvantage because there is nothing you can do about it.
J Guy (1 month ago)
william d Yes you’re right, but still not impossible to be attractive when short. By the way, based on experience, 5’7” and 5’8” are not considered short to most women in the US. Would they prefer a man who stands at 6’0”? Yes they definitely would, but most of them just want someone taller than they are, and at 5’8” that would mean literally taller than 93% of all women in the US.

J Guy no your correct tbf I mean overall iv seen average looking short guys slay so obviosusly exceptions exist and honestly your not a bad looking due I think that has a part to play in it. When I wrote that comment it was meant to be partially satire I’ll say turbo manlet aka below 5,6 is the cutoff zone so if your 5,5 I do believe you will struggle a lot but overall as long as you have a good face strong and confident I believe it’s possible to easily slay I just think as you have to be honest it will take much more effort then somebody who is your looks level that’s 6,2
pokezee king-wolf (1 month ago)
Elliot thank you I have said this for ever women need to realise even if a mans 5,4 he could still kick 99% of all women’s ass as a 5,11 guy that’s around a 7/10 I don’t have the height problem but I have had women say they liek guys much taller then me lmao despite me being ripped not only am I ripped but I’m still much taller but at least 4 inches taller then the average female in heels which is around 5,7 as you said if we were able to beat a hoe they would have respect again and stop this bullshit it’s not natural selection as if it were men would FORCIBLY make women date them due to our physical strength many retards think in caveman times a short man would be weeded out but due to marriages and women not having RIGHTS short men could get wives and even when you couldn’t they would just forcibly make a woman their wives like they do ironically in the Islamic nations
J Guy (1 month ago)
pokezee king-wolf That’s me in the green shirt in my profile picture. I am exactly 5’8” (172.8 cm) barefoot. In that same picture I am standing next to my brother-in-law who is 5’11”. Bro I’m here to tell you that I’ve done very well in the women department. Not bragging, but at 40 years old currently, I can’t even count how many women I’ve dated and/or slept with. 5’8” is in no way, shape, or form in the “slaughter” zone, as you suggest. And in reality, even though it is in fact slightly below average for an adult male in the US, it is still taller than 35% of all other men, and 93% of all other women in the US. 5’8” is quite literally the cut-off zone for what is “safe” in my personal opinion and experience.
Elliot (3 months ago)
+pokezee king-wolf Maybe in Holland, if so the women in your area are retards. I am starting to think we should be able to beat women up like the muslims do.

Great video, Ross Perot should be in this list too, he’s the Texas billionaire that ran for the US presidency in the 90’s. Mr. Perot is 5’5.
John C. (1 year ago)
Perot's height may be one reason why he got so few votes compared to Bush and Clinton. Few politicians and C.E.O.'s are short. People in general have an inherent bias against "short" as evidenced by promotions, elections, etc. There seems to be a "glass ceiling" for short people.
