Heightism, Detachment & Sociopathy – The Rules Revisited

Darwin once stated, it is not the strongest that are most likely to survive, but those most adaptable to change. Height elicits expectation, yet it does not determine personality or social standing. Despite what many men and women believe, being restricted by one’s height or weight presents a valuable challenge that would not exist, if modern society was more accepting of its innate diversity. From a historical perspective, this is far from new behaviour. However, there are countless erroneous presumptions associated with height that limit our understanding of how heightism originally came to be.

One of the earliest, common references is that of the “Napoleon Complex”, which denotes an inferiority complex or deep-rooted hang-up with one’s own height. However, the original purpose of this term is rarely analysed, nor it is considered that history is typically written by the victor. Smear campaigns were nothing new. Since we have learnt to paint on cave-walls, we have used visual and/or linguistic mediums to convey useful and impractically vain information. To twist and turn information, regardless of its accuracy stretches back to the beginning of ancient warfare. This leads us to a simple fact: Napoleon Bon Apart (5.6ft / 1.68m) was taller than Horatio Nelson (5.4ft / 1.64m). One would think that such a basic fact could easily be discerned by the masses, however, Nelson was accustomed to taking measures against “looking short”. That being said, when the height difference is below 2 inches or five centimetres, it is fairly easy to play with appearances, but whereas many people nowadays can purchase flats from nearby stores, Nelson had to devise his own methods of altering his appearance.
Nelson understood that height is as physical as it is psychological. Anyone can seem tall, while they truly aren’t. If you are bold enough, you can make anyone believe anything, but let’s not throw all caution to the wind just yet. There are physiological limits without bone-shattering application traditional Chinese surgery. Limitations that cannot be applied to the art of propaganda. He may not have been taller than his opponent, although you wouldn’t know with how much effort he invested in being referred to as the taller out of the two.
To show the extent of how successful his propaganda campaigns actually were…in honour of Nelson’s victory, the column built in Trafalgar Square was designed to be the tallest landmark in all of London. Some historians suggest that it was Nelson’s explicit wish for the highest monument to be dedicated to him, so he could oversee the entirety of the metropolis of London at the time.

As we are judged by our appearance, prior to our actions…Before we even open up our mouth, it is only logical to give yourself the best chances. In the old days, it was easier to make yourself appear taller, smarter and more capable. Nowadays, it has become much harder for anyone to pretend to be something they are not, but it is never impossible. Not for anyone…However, it appears to be easier for taller men to deceive women than their shorter counterpart. Again, not impossible. The truth is that under the right circumstances, people will turn a blind eye to almost anything, if they are otherwise occupied…They will disregard height differences, personal disagreements and even the most heart-wrenching betrayals, when the appeal to their self-interest is sufficient. Although the interests of one or more people may be temporarily aligned, that does not guarantee any form of loyalty or respect once they are not. In fact, short men and women live longer, when they’re weary of the company they keep. It is one thing to be useful, but to be repeatedly used as a stepping stone is a fate no one should settle for, regardless of their stature.

Height & Intelligence

History is full of examples, where height serves as an indicator of high intelligence or brute force. Whereas some geniuses are born, most forms of intelligence are cultivated and developed over time. In other words, every human being has the potential to enhance their natural abilities or fight against them. Whereas many living beings are driven by instinct, we have the free will to choose. In this, we are given a distinct advantage. Through conscious choice, one can overcome the height-based bias that runs riot in the world. However, we can only free ourselves, we cannot force others into the position to acknowledge the existence or negative impact of heightism.
Being short is not a handy-cap. It does not determine EQ, IQ or intelligence of thought. Here, one has to to bear in mind that the most intelligent of people were never revered throughout history, they were shunned, exiled and often murdered in the most heinous manner. However, where the general cultivation of intelligence is concerned, Jung’s theory on personality development indicates that if you are not athletically- or strength-orientated as a short person, your talent most likely lies elsewhere. Further research into the hidden talents of the “vertically challenged” shows that many excel at communication. Whereas some had to become quick witted by being subjected to abuse, others were born with the gift of the gab. It gives them an irresistible charm that makes them much more successful in the dating game. For those that are still mastering that knack for words, the trick is to say less than necessary.

Needless to mention, there are many different types of intelligence. Although we continue to quantify new forms, quantum physics suggests the avenues of intelligence are infinite. If we can conceive being a genius in a subject in our minds, it is fairly possible to cultivate the knowledge necessary to succeed. That being said, if you weren’t born swimming against the tide, I wouldn’t recommend to start now. Nurture your natural abilities, but keep an open mind. After all, you wouldn’t expect Bach, Tesla or Einstein to abandon their respective fields, for what was expected of them. Truth is not a phenomena of mass-appeal, neither is free will. The most intelligent, remarkable and revered characters throughout history were not recognised for their achievement. They did not need to be. They did what felt right for them, regardless of what society thought of them. That being said, appearance and social standing can easily override intelligence, but it depends very much on the circumstances. In such an occasion, the personality of a person often defines their instinctual reaction. (It should be noted that psychopaths are predominantly prone to react in specific ways, whereas sociopaths often lack a reaction, unless attempting to elicit a specific response.)
As stated before, there is such a thing as too intelligent. However, there are two distinct types of “high intelligence.” As paradoxical as it may seem, the first type of supremely intelligent people, capable of outsmarting the world’s finest, frequently feign ignorance to fit in. Conversely, the second type often lack the social intelligence to not outshine their master (at every turn), unless the right circumstances are in their favour.
For many, high intelligence is frightening. Combined with the lack of height, it is like drawing a bullseye on one’s back. Even if you give someone the right answer or advice, if it’s not you they wanna hear it from, then the entire endeavour is flawed from the outset. At times, we fail to realise just how intelligent those around us are, if our ego prevents us from seeing them for what they are truly capable of.
Tall or not, nothing is as it seems. We can never know anyone by their appearance or glimpses of their personality. Even the type or level intelligence only serves us to a limits degree. Truth is only time reveals the reality of a person and/or situation. Hitler considered to the Jews to be of lower intelligence. Before then, men thought of women as less intelligent. And the time before that, it was African Americans. For someone to be superior, some has to be viewed as inferior. The more superior someone is, the more inferior another becomes. In a way, it is the cycle and sway of power. Without a smidgen of humility or compassion toward their opponent, people rise to inconceivable heights. However, they must invariably fall from their high horse in this life or the next. Regardless of how sly or intelligent, no one can escape the moral consequences of their behaviour toward themselves or others. So, think twice before acting out revenge or ill-will…Think twice before judging yourself based on appearance or intelligence. Beauty and intelligence are both in the eye of the beholder. They are malleable, superficial properties that are easily altered, as is what we gain from them. However, the challenge in problem-solving is to realise that we cannot change certain aspects of ourselves, we can only overcome them by denying them the power to act upon us. If we doomed to be short, the most intelligent coping strategy is to make the best of it. Ironically, this is also one of the most effective ways to annoy and irritate those that gain a level of satisfaction from demeaning others. The lack of a reaction/response or even a simple agreement can startle the most determined bully long enough to diffuse tension, but it can also have the exact opposite effect.

Height & Mental Illness

Many short men are either depict as the arrogant smartass, the sly mediator and the cold-blooded sociopath or psychopath. However, how closely related are height and mental well-being? Although it shouldn’t have such detrimental effects, any form of discrimination takes its toll. As height and well-being are indirectly connected through the self-image that is established through childhood and adulthood. Height can never be a definite indicator of sanity and it is ludicrous that some humour this notion. From a professional standpoint, height affects many facets of life, from dating to work opportunities to socialising, which in turn affects mental and emotional health.
Truth be told, just by being short or fat, the chance of getting employed or earning more is significantly lower. After all, it could be argued that any profession that is restricted by height requirements only perpetuates a narrow-minded, inaccurate view of how height determines available career-choices and progression. However, no argument or clever statement can change the reality of the situation.
Although height discrimination has reached the realms of undeniability, that does not stop people from trying. Hell, I would depressed if interview after interview employers would take one look at me and my CV, make some excuse and hired someone half my age with less qualifications but taller. Equal employment opportunities means that it shouldn’t matter if I’m a 4ft grey alien from Alpha Centauri, every living being should have the same opportunity to prove their skills and put food on the table. To be expected to be mentally stable in such conditions is like fighting an endless tide of unrealistic expectations. It should be noted that those who demand often are not expected to deliver, if put in the same position. On a separate note, I’ve noticed short men that have risen above the negative restrictions and implications of heightism rarely associate with other short men, unless carefully selected. They wish to distance themselves as far as they can from being a target, or being associated with anything that threatens the position they have fought to gain. Those that have made it are not all cut-throat, but the majority have had to learn to function in a world of predators. As a consequence, the prey grows far beyond its former predator(s). Whereas some develop anti-social qualities to survive among psychopaths, others choose to steer their moral compass in the opposite direction. They cultivate an air of non-attachment that almost gives them a monk-like presence. They are at peace with who they are. They do not feel the urge to seek justice or vengeance…They only act when acted upon. And I have the deepest empathy for those that have fallen victim to such a powerful force. Few that I know of make it out alive with their ego intact. Some are so emasculated that it stays with them for the rest of their lives (which is most likely equivalent to what they have done to others for being short, fat or otherwise impaired in their opinion).

The Short Sociopath VS The Tall Psychopath

So far in my career, I’ve encountered short and tall sociopaths. However, I’ve always found that my colleagues would find it easier to cope with the 6ft6in than the 5ft4in service user. While episodes of violence were more common for the taller clientele, short men were far more contained but infinitely more vicious when violent. Despite the inherent danger, I’ve always been more comfortable around short sociopaths in comparison to tall psychopaths or sociopaths. Although not all short sociopaths I’ve met socially or professionally have been high functioning, the majority were highly intelligent in their own way. One that society may not be ready to acknowledge just yet, since it has no need to. As stated before, once there is a need, most will say or do anything to fill it…But what happens afterwards entirely depends on the person and circumstance.

The term psychopath and sociopath are often used to describe the worst fears anyone can have about someone we are associated with. Their true nature is thought to be egocentric, merciless and incapable of remorse. The stuff of your worst nightmares… But contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to look far to find a full-blooded psychopath or sociopath. Just switch on your TV. Whereas psychopaths thrive on attention, sociopaths often keep to the shadows. Nonetheless, both can also create shadows from which to operate. Most of us won’t have to look beyond our community to find a borderline psychopath or sociopath. The difference is tall people remain undetected far more often, unless their actions have been witnessed on a large scale. One that is not or cannot be denied.

To explain, the difference between psychopathy and sociopathy on a fundamental level is on a genetic level. Whereas both can have their hereditary roots, emotional processing is affected differently. Psychopaths, although they may not be able to feel, are often driven by an emotional need. Sociopaths are not. However, both disassociate from their emotions to variant degrees. Both are capable of vicious fits of rage, although they are often underplayed when the individual is short.
The most important difference I’ve found in dating a psychopath and a higher functioning sociopath is the need to prey on emotions. Psychopaths appear to have an inherent need to manipulate and deceive that makes them overconfident. The paranoid tendencies of a short sociopath is the textbook example that counters such the deep-rooted emotional need of the stereotypically tall and good looking psychopath.
Height does not differentiate. Since height discrimination has become an everyday occurrence, whether you’re a psychopath, sociopath or just anti-social makes no difference. If you’re short as a male, you’re doomed to be an outsider, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. From personal experience, short-statured people like myself either make an invested effort to follow trends or they create their own. As a psychologist, it is my firm opinion that trend-setters are always outsiders. Whether short or tall, they have the confidence to walk their own path.
However, for sociopaths, the end justifies the means. If that means their imprisonment, torture or death, then so be it. Psychopaths, due to their inherent emotional needs, have an in-build weakness, whereas once the mask of a sociopath drops…There is nothing. A vast, infinite void of emotion that drives shivers down your spine. Beyond false anger, there is dead calm silence.
In simple terms, the circuits in the cortex do not connect and/or process emotions properly…like two wires that don’t fully connect. Since they don’t, there is an accumulation of energy, leading to large bursts of emotion, when the buildup is so substantial that the connection is forced.

It is difficult for anyone to let someone close to us see us in our worst light. For sociopaths and psychopaths, the light is merely more revealing than most people can handle. Not all of us were born or conditioned to be a certain way, but none of us deserve the rejected for that fact.
Predators have their uses in any society. Historically, their talents were put to good use in the military. The more psychotic, psychopathic or sociopathic the opponent, the more insane was the person that actually defeated them. In wartimes, you wouldn’t care about the short guy wielding a battle ax like a mad man, unless he is coming toward you. The military has always been in high demand of controllable soldiers that will follow any command to the death, not uncontrollable cannon balls that wreck their projections. Psychopaths gain their power from knowing their place and when to rise above it…Sociopaths will do so regardless, if they wish to.

Being short makes that endeavour slightly more complex, as there is more to conceal and distract from. Playing with appearances is more complicated, as making oneself taller isn’t an option. Surrounding oneself by tall, but genuine, supporters is a frequently used technique. However, the tall selfless wingman that’ll deliver women on a plate is a sheer fantasy, unless they are blackmailed into doing so or persuaded by someone with a higher level power compared to them. I’ve found that when it comes to territory, many men do not remove women from the equation. That being said, women are no longer subject to arranged marriages or career-restraints, but we are just as vulnerable to social engineering. Particularly, in the case of male heightism.
When we become chronically dissatisfied with ourselves, it becomes hard to hide. People sense, feel and see that one person, which drags the group down. On the other hand, every group also has its leader: the alpha male or female. Whereas tall psychopaths or sociopaths often have the opportunity to cosy up to them by replacing the beta…Their short counterpart often has to strike with fierce momentum to displace or even scatter the group (with less beneficial results). In conclusion, height doesn’t affect the severity of a condition, but at times it forces men in the position to overcompensate merely to be noticed. Unfortunately, by the time they are noticed, their reactions have often been torn so far out of proportion that they distract from the issue at hand.

“Psychologist Catherine Cottrell at the University of Florida and her colleague Steven Neuberg at Arizona State University, argue that human prejudice evolved as a function of group living. Joining together in groups allowed humans to gain access to resources necessary for survival including food, water, and shelter. Groups also offered numerous advantages, such as making it easier to find a mate, care for children, and receive protection from others. However, group living also made us more wary of outsiders who could potentially harm the group by spreading disease, killing or hurting individuals, or stealing precious resources. To protect ourselves, we developed ways of identifying who belongs to our group and who doesn’t. Over time, this process of quickly evaluating others might have become so streamlined that it became unconscious.”

It takes less than a second for the average woman to decide whether she is attracted to another or not.
Self esteem and confidence can only get you so far, it cannot change how individuals that have limited themselves to responding in certain ways to certain people.
It’s their way of feeling socially and personally superior. It’s the source of their power. To make fun of that which is different. It is what mankind has always done. We form groups based on similarities. It’s an expression of free will and preference, only as long as it does not harm anyone physically, mentally or emotionally. Personally, I have always enjoyed being able to look a romantic partner in the eye. As a 5ft2in tall female, that can attract unwanted attention. Ironically, it can be perceived as an open invitation at times to taller men. A challenge to prove their superiority. More often than not, these failed attempts have been more socially painful for them than my partner at the time. However, I’m very much for equality. I paid my way through University, working full time, without relying on financial support. My swiss heritage somewhat gave me an edge to promote equal standards even if it cost me a job…or two…or three. Not backing down can be a disadvantage, especially when you’re facing an army of people that think that the social system is working just fine. Or that the jobcentre is trying to make everyone middle class. There will always be those that oppose your perspective. In a institutionally corrupt world, even more so. The meak shall inherit the earth… Doesn’t mean it’ll be an easy process. Everything happens for a reason. At times, its just hard to recognize it. Height discrimination is remnant of a strength versus intelligence battle. Socially permitted bullying does not make in any way justified. To be different means that you are yourself. There are people out there are will lobe that which others view as imperfections. And that’s the one thing you can count on. Until then, perseverance is the only tactic that can allow an individual to suffer discrimination and survive. If you have survived, then you have outlasted that which tormented you without becoming the tormentor.

From a historical perspective, Alexander, The Great, for instance, was in truth 5ft3in tall. Nelson was in actuality shorter than Napoleon himself. In essence, height does not determine personality. However, it is a predominant factor in combat as well as reproduction. It is often depict that larger animals utilize smaller species as prey. It’s an easy capture without much risk. Similarly, it can soothe the ego complex to gain a females affection by outbidding other prospective mates. In any case, the results is often the same. A struggle for power ensues, which will leave one of them licking their wounds. Although I’ve witnessed countless fights, in which the taller male opposes the shorter male in superior numbers, I have only  been witness to few tall men in a fair fight. As a professional, I aim to redirect the need for violent confrontation. As a woman, I am acutely aware that the propagator will most likely search for another target elsewhere. That’s where you come in… Don’t let yourself become a target.

“There’s just something appealing about tall men. Napoleon aside, tall men are more likely to win the popular contest in presidential votes and to be re-elected once in office (Stulp, 2013).  Their greater leadership potential may have something to do with the fact that tall men have higher self-esteem (whether or not deserved), are happier, and less likely to feel jealous toward other men.  When it comes to romantic partners, men and women tend to sort themselves out so that they form pairs of similar height. However, among married couples, women are more likely to be shorter than their husbands, if only by a few inches. In an intriguing 2013 study, Dutch psychologists Gert Stulp, Abraham Buunk, and Thomas Pollet followed up on some of their earlier work on male height to find out more about what leads women to prefer those lanky guys. They were also curious to learn how and why people are satisfied with their own height.”

There are obviously some social biases here, however, height does not equal survival capability, it is merely a factor. Intelligence is not defined by stature. In fact, intelligence is a more influential factor than height. Strength can only so get you so far.

“In a paper that will be published in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Eva Telzer of UCLA and three other researchers report that they’ve performed these amygdala studies–which had previously been done on adults–on children. And they found something interesting: the racial sensitivity of the amygdala doesn’t kick in until around age 14. What’s more: once it kicks in, it doesn’t kick in equally for everybody. The more racially diverse your peer group, the less strong the amygdala effect. At really high levels of diversity, the effect disappeared entirely. The authors of the study write that ”these findings suggest that neural biases to race are not innate and that race is a social construction, learned over time.”

Dating a Higher Functioning Sociopath – Rule 66

There is a point in life, in which we rid ourselves of our child-selves, as it may and step into a world of responsibility. Our own life becomes nothing but responsibility. Yet, with responsibility comes power and that is the objective of too many human beings. Truth be told, I personally reached such a stage. After years of being in a relationship, in which I am the provider, the comments of others begin to lose their meaning. Gender roles should not be the issue here. Within a compromised world, the entire family unit will be required to slave for the clothes on their back. However, there is only so many times you can watch yourself bleed or ignore the bruises that the world has left you with. Mutual responsibility states that both individuals share the entire blame, as both entered the circumstance, knowing  the probable consequences. Only those affected by emotion and unable to accept their part of the responsibility will deny their role.  The truth about modern society can often be so harsh that the masses will shield themselves from it. Blame is shifted here more than anywhere else. Social taboos only persist, since society as a whole cannot acknowledge its responsibility for producing them. Every action contains a wide range of possible reactions, some more probable than others. The interconnected nature of the universe, amongst other things, suggests that the visible separation of objects and individuals is illusory, consequently the attachment that we hold towards our external reality is highly misleading. In the end, none of us are truly alone, yet none of us are truly enlightened either.

Nonetheless, trust is defined by the reliance of integrity, capability or characteristics of an individual or object and within modern society it is formed slowly, if at all. We would all give our lives for something or someone without a moment’s hesitation. Yet, when we are forced to live out the consequences of such a choice, the final outcome differs from the original blueprint of the plan. However, when we actively seek to discover such determination and force of will within ourselves, it alters our character. By tuning into our inner strength, we become limitless. Capable of overcoming anything and everything that may step into our path. No matter how painful. No matter how soul-crushing the experience may be. Yet, there will always be those that seek to break the will of another, at times even crush it beyond the point of return. I’ve encountered a few in my time. It is a harsh experience for another to mould you like clay. Underneath none of us are set in stone. We are like water, we choose the path of least resistance. Although there are others, such as myself, that withstand up to the point of breaking with an inbuilt safety switch, which spells genocide. Western Civilisation is a cosy location for most individuals, except for molested children, child trafficking victims, rape victims, fighting troops, the homeless and those starving on the streets. If you have ever been any of the above, you’ll know what I mean. There are certain circumstances that you simply cannot be yourself again afterwards. This is commonly referred to as a shift in consciousness. Thanatologists refer to it as a form of emotional death, which can trigger an overload, when the trauma is compounded too severely in a short period of time. Individuals that have suffered such an experience before are twice as likely to suffer it again and emerge stronger, if they can fight their way through. A piece of personal advice, do not rely on your social circles, unless they are rock-solid with a steady track record of providing support. You’d merely end up causing yourself more deep-rooted damage than it’s worth. Secondly, learn to detach and walk away, if necessary, to prevent further exposure or risk to yourself. There are few things that you cannot simply walk away from, others simply require further determination, but the most important thing is that you do what you consider to be the right thing. Recently, I skimmed through some of my old study materials, mainly basic anatomy and physiology before progressing to trauma medicine. And to cut a long story short, that which I was reading reminded me of the very first time that I was raped. If you’ve never slept with anyone beforehand, it certainly leaves an impression. Most men and women spend years attempting to move on from it. It becomes a tainted first experience that if you want it or not affects the mind. Yet, I was young at the time and had not completed half the training in psychology that I have now. I picked myself up and carried going, until the second time. The most dangerous part here is that the individual can disconnect too rapidly and too severely, which results in rationalizing the experience in a manner that harms the emotional potential of the individual, yet not the overall mental growth. Similar to suppressing one and forcing the other to grow into excess, resulting in an imbalance. Most rape victims know that the world does not stop simply since they’ve got a bad day. The rent and bills need to be paid. The attendance record at work needs to be spotless. And some still need to perform sexually as if nothing happened with their partners. So, after the second time, I learnt to move on without flinching. To take a hit and keep on going, as if nothing happened. Within the modern world, where everything travels at such a fast pace, there are very few moments to catch a breath and clear ones head. And even less individuals take the time to recuperate in private. I’ve learnt by experience that the methods of social engineering have spread to the furthest corners of the globe and in the end there is no other escape from them than to grow immune and detached from them. To basically become of little use to anyone involved within modern society, as they are mainly dependent upon them. A word of caution, detachment brings countless gifts to the practitioners doorstep, yet one has to be careful not to detach to severely in a short period of time as that can be accompanied with repercussions and emotional outbursts. In retrospect, one should not push oneself over the edge or allow others to do the same. That which you identify with defines you on a deep level. Now, imagine you were to take each and every aspect away from yourself. Bit by bit. Whatever is left, which is nothing, ultimately defines you. There are no material riches. Your weight will not be measured in gold. In fact, you will feel as if you are being stripped of everything that you are.
Tiny-Buddha
Ultimately, that is not true. To attain true non-attachment means to distance yourself on every level down to your very core from everything that you perceive affects you, makes you or compromises your perspective. Every single material possession, including your house, your car, the very clothes on your back and food in your fridge. Every single emotional or psychological attachment or social contact that you have ever formed, without allowing it to affect your emotional or mental state as well as communication skills. Although your presence of mind will feel as if it is being torn apart under attack, you grow stronger from it, as it represents as a pure state of self-sufficiency, in which you are entirely independent and disconnected without one singular aspect of the phenomenal world interfering with your state of mind. Disconnecting, in essence, refers to an undisturbed awareness of reality without any forms of emotional bias, judgement, desire, power or attachment towards the situation at hand.

There are at all times individuals that hold opposite goals and values. We all follow a variant methodology of operation when it comes down to living our life. Yet, there will always be those that seek to live off of the generosity and good will of others. Often, there is an unspoken agreement of exchange within society. One hand washes the other, as favours are traded. Exceptions, however, mark the rule. What about the step-father that sneaks into their adopted sons or daughters bedroom, when she is far too young to legally consent to sexual activities or even mentally make sense of them? I strongly recommend the practice of non-violence and there are very few occasions I would justify the use of self-defence, if it results in degenerative injuries that affect motor function, but that is one of them. Every individual is responsible for who they associate themselves with, even when they are born into the circumstances. Perhaps, in Buddhism or Hinduism, it would be especially when they are born into these horrific circumstances. Do not let all that suffering be in vain, but let it drive you one s

Dating a Higher Functioning Sociopath – Part 3

Within mating, any individual forms a conscious or unconscious template of a suitable partner. This is often referred to as the love-map. It is constructed during early childhood between the ages of 3 and 6. The mental image of a suitable mate however is ever-changing, and is customized according to the individuals reality matrix. If this concept were to be combined with the overall socially engineered preference towards taller males, due to the ancient myth of height equals strength, suddenly a conception has been created that terrifies most of society. The short, highly intelligent sociopath. One that doesn’t take no for an answer, when faced with hypocrisy or social politics. Personally, I am of the opinion that anyone is capable of anything, if they perceive the situation calls for it or their survival is dependent upon it. Short or tall. Both groups are fully capable of genocidal acts. Nonetheless, throughout the recent years, I have noticed a pattern amongst individuals in my life. The partner can do anything, be unemployed, not have a car or even pay the bills, as long as he is of sufficient height for individuals to not wish to argue against it. Yet, if you were to then put a short individual in front of them, they change their opinion 180 degrees, refuting and denying their previous viewpoint to the point of utter irrationality. Another time, a close friend actually stated that she is disgusted by short men. When I enquired about her reasoning, she stated that they were the scum of society and one shouldn’t associate oneself with them for too long. These are mere justifications towards an opinion that is overly judgmental over an individual that she had never encountered.

There are two conversation blockers. Sociopathy and Heightism. Once the conversational partner has processed both subjects separately, one may actually be able to combine the concept without them running for the hills. Why is it that society appears to be so utterly terrified by the short, higher functioning sociopath? To the degree of complete disacknowledgement of the facts. A wise man reminded me about a fact that I learnt a long time ago, sociopathy is a scale. With childhood sociopathy even more so, as the individual is still progressing through vital stages of development. There are variant degrees of severity. In my professional opinion, sociopaths are either abnormally feared or approached with extreme bias. Mankind has become so caught up with their feelings that the absence of reaction or emotional feedback irritates and provokes them often bringing further imbalance to their rational mind. It is often stated that the presence of a Monk radiates undisturbed calmness and tranquility, soothing those around them. Yet, a monk displays a level of the same traits as the sociopath. How does the presence of one calm and the other agitate? The stigma that is attached to mere mention of the term sociopath is often wrongfully connected with psychopathy, which merely complicates the full comprehension of the condition. However, society in itself is becoming more indifferent towards one another, displaying more sociopathic and psychopathic traits. There is, however, one preconception that does not apply with the combination of heightism and sociopathy. That height equals strength. Truth be told, I’d fight a tall guy one-on-one any day. Short guy, no way. They fight too rough. I’ve seen one short male drop three 6’4ft thugs in under 1 minute. Mind you, I’ve only met two short sociopaths in my life, the others were all 6ft and above. The taller sociopaths that I have encountered were more prone to violence, although all of them were above average intelligence, they had become accustomed to prefer the use of their fists. The short sociopaths were of highly intelligence with knowledge of the practical applications regarding their ideas. A few I would consider geniuses for their contributions towards science and humanity itself. One revolutionized genetics when he has around 10 years old by composing an academic paper for a Californian Institute. Another mastered the depth of mathematics during his teenage years. Truth be told, a book should not be judged by its cover. Humanity is becoming less caring of their fellow man, more prone to emotional outbursts and displays a general disconnection towards the outside world as well as other members of society. That is in itself is a sociopathic trait. Mankind is often too quick to judge, yet unwilling to change themselves, still in denial regarding their gradual increase of despondence and indifference. A stage of evolution is approaching humanity and it is your choice, which way you will take.

Paradoxical Time-Travel – Part 3

The education of the children of mankind has continually been lowered over the years, perfecting the art of applied social engineering across all civilisations. It has spread into the very corners of society. It’s cessation is only possible through the removal of the pillars of society. The social butterflies and those that are preyed upon sexually between the age of 12-14. These kinds of rapes are hardly ever reported. The British benefits system has become accustomed to even supporting these underage pregnancies by providing them with homes as soon as the pregnancy has been confirmed. Truth be told, once the paedophiles in the lower ranks have been removed, the ones in the upper ranks swiftly follow. And they can see the change approaching from a mile away. If once every three months, a confirmed, re-offending paedophile were to face vigilante justice. The social ripple effect would encompass society, and the social structures would naturally be forced to rearrange itself. It would require time after the event for the predators to re-establish themselves. How long would it take until the lower ranks are entirely erased and the higher ranks become slightly on edge? A child disappears every 3 minutes in the United Kingdom. A child disappears every 2 minutes in Vatican City? How many MPs, PMs, priests and clergies have a criminal record that is being concealed from the public. We have come to believe the propaganda that is put in front of us. Sheep that do not question, silently nodding away, whilst humanity faces extinction.

The breeding of intelligence within society has become considered a needless trait. Individuals are taught to follow orders rather than question them, if even they result in their undoing. We are educated that height and strength are highly desired  characteristics within the mating process, yet psychologically that is a coping mechanism that has outlived its usefulness. Violence and self-defence is mostly against the law now, so why the aim for the tall, muscle-bound thug? Truth be told, safety is an illusion. Inevitably, you will die. Once you can accept that, you can move forward. There is countless evidence that the genomic code is equally affected by environmental factors as it is with genetic factors. Needless to mention, if one were to scroll forward in time to the time-frame, in which the entire genetic code can be understood, to the degree when each sub-molecular particle can be manipulated in order to benefit the individual, such as genetically increasing intelligence, it would not be too much of a stretch to imagine that this information could easily be sent back in time. The scientist providing himself with his life’s research in order to save years of study and progress further in a shorter period in time. Although one would be confronted with one simple paradox, the study would still have to be completed…It is a measure of saving time, rather than saving oneself the effort. If the entire genomic code was to be completely decoded, the construction of artificial intelligence becomes an effortless exercise that would allow society to evolve on a larger scale. If the IQ of the globe were to be raised, the rate of information processing would therefore increase. It should be noted that society has become a web of NLP and subliminal messaging. Individuals have become too focused upon immediate gratification and unable to develop social will within the politics of fear. Time has come for that cycle to be broken. Ultimate control can only be achieved through consent. The people remain at the very core of the power-house, as it may. Yet, if it were to implode, they will also be at the very heart of it. Nevertheless, if society were to become focused upon the breeding of genius intellect, the power structures would require to alter their game. watchmen_night_rain_rorschach_lightning_desktop_1920x1080_hd-wallpaper-884130

In conclusion, it can be assumed that scientific research (not stratagems) has been sent back in time at one point or another, whether it was in this planet constellation could be argued. The 20-30 year copyright hold over technology, for instance. As civilisations, we are 30 years behind in the release of technological advances. The modern technology that we have now as around in the early 80’s, which falls into a gap year, in which the birth of those individuals outweighs every other age group combined  2 to 1. That which currently controls society, may it be aliens or time-travellers, are undoubtedly ahead of us. Technologically, mentally and perhaps even physically. One actions of theirs influences the cornerstones of society. They are directly controlling every aspect, from the bedrock upwards. Once time-travel is involved in the equation, all bets are off. Nothing is safe. Everything remains in a state of flux outside of your control. Our world becomes nothing more than a book on a shelf within a distant higher dimension, although for us, the story has not yet finished. The intention is to bankrupt every single human being that is outside of their circle of control. Helplessness and terror is a state of mind, yet the media is trying their damndest to implement it at every step. Truth be told, that which has come to define us has individuals has become riddled with hypocrisy.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this. Your involvement is required. If everyone that read this post were to be more pro-active towards solving these problems within society, towards outing individuals that are blatantly violating the human rights of others, social change would be guaranteed within a year.

Heightism & Paedophilia

Criminological Analysis of Heightism

As previously mentioned within my post regarding the chav based rape and child abuse systems that have been constructed within society and continue to perpetuate themselves, it should be noted that the pregnant child is often kept within a state of fear in order to remain silent, regarding the father. I have personally witnessed parental disputes, in which the parents disregarded the abuser of the child and they become complicit in continuing their association. It has reached a point, in which females are handed over to a male above 6’2ft (most predators are often of that height) at the age of 13 to 14. These females are impregnated repeatedly before reaching the age of 16, by which point all future potential has been lost. Once the female has outlived her purpose, she is replaced for another 13 to 14 year old. And the pattern is repeated. This occurs across the United Kingdom. It has become widespread and mainlined paedophilia. The chav, in essence, requires status and comfort in order to survive within modern society. Any rejection undoubtedly leads to violence.

In consequence, these individuals are also accustomed to obtaining female, which are classically termed as cum-buckets through constant intoxication. The weapons that these men use are far reaching. Disorientation, which can be done through music and turning up the temperature within the premises in order to elevate the heart rate. Psychological side-effects of the base drumming within music has often been utilized during times of war as well as the attainment of a trance state. Additionally, the stripping of clothes represents the stripping of defence layers in the female. Both physically and psychologically. Distortion of judgement: This has already partially been achieved by the loud music, disrupting the thought processes. Classically used in soldiers during times of combat. African tribes used to surround their targets and bang the drums for over 24 hours, after which they had their troops move in according to the drum beat. As the drum beat speeds, whilst the troops are approaching. Same effect occurs in women within these tiny flats that are turned into saunas. This is where alcohol is included into the equation. Chavs not having a lot of money will use very cheap, very chemical alcohol, designed to accelerate the heart beat and cause head rush. More often than not a little bit of cocaine is added to the mix and let the sex commence, regardless of the age of the female participant.

Yet, in order to maintain ones reputation and shine like a new penny, whilst committing acts that are far from a heroic image, one requires an easy target that is already unpopular and possesses very little defence capabilities to take the blame. These scapegoats are often 5’7ft. It has become evident that a short stature in men can be difficult in the dating world, yet during childhood this often results in regular persecution. This is often continued until after the individual leaves school. However, regular bullying implies that there are specific perpetrators that are more often than not above 6ft, especially when the victim is of above average intelligence. The final and first resort of the perpetrators is more often than not violence. Aggression is provoked at the slightest hint of rejection or objection. Even when accusing the individual of performing the actions that they themselves committed, such as child abuse. It has become common practice and these individuals often victimize their childhood targets long after leaving school, even if that means going out of their way to do so or targeting an individual exactly like them. This type of chav feed off media propaganda and utilize it as a manner of controlling others, such as the celebrity media, Hollyoaks East Enders, Coronation Street and so forth. It should be noted that they surround themselves in air of overconfidence. These individuals will often walk around and behave as if the world owes them something and they are there to take it at every opportunity with a shit eating grin on their face and no thanks whatsoever. These individual do not participate in fair fights. On average, it is 6 or more (above 6th) on one individual that is below 6ft. The same perpetrators are the same groups that engage in date rape. As in their own words, “They ain’t sinking money into no sex.” Yet, they do not commit these crimes on their own turf, they raid other gangs club territory, as it is considered. Numerous towns along rail-lines from London to Thanet, London to Brighton, and London to Norwich are often used as a date-rape and acquaintance zones. A room is rented out, then these individuals spot their targets, drug them and return with them to their rooms, leaving them to wake up the next morning within the establishment. In the same manner that CEO’s and the likes travel to foreign countries and other locations of immunity to perform their dark deeds. This can be found within all aspects of society, such as the corporate, industrial, political and religious world. In conclusion, adequate education of children and a true view of society without emotional bias would eliminate this phenomenon almost overnight. The social construct known as heightism would cease to exist with an objective viewpoint of society, whilst removing the social predators and freeing up the space for mental growth within society, enabling it to move forward, beyond the shadow of social corruption.

Heightism – A Social Construct

heightismHeightism is defined as a social phenomenon, however it is an entirely human condition, although one could argue that in the animal kingdom, the strong survive, yet smaller creatures, unless fiercely vicious, usually become the first available source of nutrition. In consequence, adding a greater level of consciousness into the equation often equals similar territorial behaviour in male interaction, especially in the proximity of females.
It is a purely social construct, based upon the history and evolution of mankind. Yet, also it is the final taboo of society, hence it is rejected as a policy on a global scale. Truth be told, further research and case studies have revealed detailed insight into the phenomena and its influence on a primal unconscious level. An archetype almost in it’s own right for it’s symbolic nature. Captain America, the short man rebelling against the tall bully, a stereotype in it’s own right for its daily reoccurrence in society. It has been scientifically proven that height affects intellect, the effects of height discrimination often result in a forced adaption or evolution to the environment on a rather deep mental level.  The radical altering of height through shoes and inlays or surgery is merely one option, which is taken frequently. For instance, numerous eye witness reports confirmed the abrupt change of behaviour of the external world. Whereas individuals that had almost assaulted the subject beforehand for merely crossing the street. They were being offered alcohol and invitations to social gatherings. The profound realization within the eye witnesses, which were males and females of above 5’9-5’10, of the rapid social change left them in shock and horror, it had completely altered their perception, however only as they were open-minded enough to appreciate the truth behind it that which they had just observed and therefore were able to alter their behaviour towards those of a shorter stature. Socially speaking, the phenomena stems from a deep-rooted mating instinct. Primal, yet symbolic. Height equals strength, it represents a seemingly higher level of protection. The survival of the fittest, as it may, however intelligence hardly comes in the equation. In fact, 92.5 percent of males are taller than their significant other. Conclusively, the average height of a male CEO is 183cm in the United States of America.

How do tall women and short men survive the dating world? A 2008 study of 382 undergraduates in the journal Personality and Individual Differences found that both sexes preferred relationships where the woman was shorter than the man. Curiously, the research also showed that women enforced the norm more strongly than men. Twenty-three percent of men but only four percent of women said they were open to a relationship in which the woman was taller.

“Women view taller men as more likely to be physically dominant and potential protectors, which provides a feeling of safety,” Dr. David Frederick, co-author of the study and visiting professor of psychology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, wrote in an email. “For some women, being with a taller partner makes them feel smaller, and it is not surprising that some women prefer this given the pressure on women to be slender.” Evolutionarily speaking, women may have developed a preference for taller men because of the advantages height provides in male on male competitions, he added.

Back in 2002, ABC News conducted an unscientific experiment to explore how willing women were to date shorter men. They lined up several short men next to tall men, and asked women to choose a date. They gave the short men exceptional résumés, including those for a doctor and millionaire venture capitalist. Despite their glowing qualities, the women always chose the taller men. Some said they would only choose the shortest of the bunch if they learned the taller men were murders or child molesters.

Gender differences in desire for a certain type of mate go beyond height and into other physical arenas. In a 2001 study in Sex Roles, researchers examined 547 personal ads, and classified them in terms of the writer’s preference for a thin partner, a physically fit partner, or no weight preference. They then mailed a figure rating scale to the ad writers and asked them to specify both ideal body size and acceptable body sizes for partners. They found that, despite what preference they expressed, women preferred a physically fit partner, while most men indicated that a number of body sizes would be acceptable.

Approximately 80 percent of height is comprised within the genetic code, yet only 20 percent is influenced by environmental conditions and life experiences. Fear being a factor, which is able to physically inhibit growth, whereas love, particularly parental affection, has been evidenced to promote a higher growth rate in children. In 2003, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of human growth hormone (hGH) for healthy short children in an attempt to make them taller. There was and is nothing medically wrong with these children, as they produce normal levels of growth hormone on their own. They are simply short statured, more often than not due to the genetic influence of their biological parents. Yet, being short is not the concern, the actual difficulties lie in the social bias against short individuals. Is society as a whole willing to treat the victim of a social preconception with unnecessary medical technology that supports and reinforces the before mentioned  prejudice? Are we as a people willing to categorize a healthy child and turn him or her into a patient in requirement of special treatment? It has become distinctly evident that modern society has become culturally preoccupied with the idea of being tall and thin at any cost, whilst almost all pharmaceutical corporations have jumped on the bandwagon. An almost institutionalized bias against those of a shorter figure.

It was estimated that the profits would be continually boosted, as there will always be those that fall into the lower height percentiles. The treatment involves subjecting the child to growth hormone injections at an average of six times per week over a period of five to ten years at an typical cost of $20,000 per annum. The treatment may be physically and emotionally harmful, and at most, the child may gain between 1 and 1½, if any additional height is gained at all. To treat the fourteen to twenty thousand children in the United States that suffer with classic growth hormone deficiency, for whom treatment is based on a medical necessity, the cost would be approximately $182 million annually.  The FDA approved females with a predicted height of 4’11 and males with a estimated height of 5’3,” eligible for hGH treatment. In sum, the number of potential treatment candidates rises to 1.7 million children at an annual cost of $22 billion. Plainly, there is profit to be gained by exacerbation of height predispositions. Truth be told, raising the awareness towards height discrimination would appear to be a more cost efficient process instead of the application of genetic engineering in order for the individual to suit the expectations of society. In fact, research has documented that an individual of 6’0ft will earn, on average, over $5500 more per year than an individual who is 5’5ft. While discrimination against short people may not be one of the more overtly harmful forms of discrimination, the lack of attention invested in it makes it one of the most deviously and subtly harmful acts of discrimination. In frequency, the alterations in behaviour towards those of a shorter height are not consciously recognized, subconsciously they may be perceived as being “less of a real man” (which appeared to be a recurrent statement during the research into height differences, that and “he just needs to grow some balls” or “He just needs to grow up”) as they are less in physical stature. There are several hypothesis that suggest shortness may be subconsciously related to a lack of power and are habitually perceived as weaker without the conscious realization of that judgement.

Thorough investigations into the nature of hand to hand combat and manners of fighting, however, have revealed styles which most refer to as “short man fighting”, as the techniques are more often than not applied against a combatant that is of a larger stature. Certain ones involve the placing of the foot on the kneecap of the opponent to jump up and target the neck, throat, facial features or head whilst using their own size against them. The unspoken rule is often to move as close to the opponent as possible in order to suffer less counterattacks, yet most commonly the first few strikes of the shorter individual already render the combatant into a less mobile state. For instance, one young male around the age of thirty openly admitted to “biting off chucks of skin” as a last option. Since he was not a physically muscular type of man of 5’7ft, he would often be targeted by three or more individuals that did not necessarily display a non-hostile intent. He would simply jump up into their face and bite onto the first solid piece of skin that was available to him. With one, he removed a part of their cheek. With another, he ripped off the tip of their nose. On both occasions, the fairly taller males collapsed, bleeding and screaming, meanwhile their peers were staring in shock and horror as he would spit the piece of skin out, running away as fast as his legs could carry him. Conclusively, this was only one of many interviews, in which short men confessed the fact that they would often find themselves deliberately targeted for a physical assault by those taller than them. Concurrently, many corroborated this very statement separately, and admitted that unless sufficient force was used in a macabre way, as a form of disincentive, the opponent would more often than not return with a larger amount of individuals to finish the task.

Historically speaking, the famous Napoleon Complex has become widely known as the Short Man Complex, yet it is not as widely spread as the knowledge that 5’8ft up to 5’10ft was considered to be average height around the time of 1812. Nonetheless, the conception implies that if a short individual acts in an assertive or overconfident manner, it must be an attributing factor of overcompensation due to their height. It is also implied that if a taller individual were to act in such an arrogant, superior fashion, it would be socially accepted as “typical” behaviour, consequently if a shorter statured male were to imitate or behave similarly, it is automatically perceived as an act of overreaction. In essence, this creates a treacherous set of double standards, in which certain sorts of behaviour are only deemed appropriate, if specific individuals embody them and not others, since they would be in receipt of an entirely different social feedback. Therefore, height becomes a determining element within social interaction. Due to the widely spread awareness towards other forms of discrimination, such as race, sexual preference, gender and social standing, the enquiry whether one is being prejudiced on any of the before mentioned matters befalls any individual more frequently than in the subject of height discrimination. Truth be told, it is often advertised in the media and on social networking sites, as an ingrained, unconscious factor. Throughout my analysis, I have in fact stumbled upon numerous proclamations that were of a rather negative nature. Over 60 percent had been posted by females, which exclaiming that short men did not have a right to live compared to their tall counterparts. In conclusion, the genuine lack of self-awareness resultant from the unconscious origin of height discrimination is further compounded by the utter lack of societal consideration of it. Currently, there is only one state in the entirety of the United States of America that prohibits Heightism, which is the state of Michigan. Subsequently, after the publication of the legislature, Utah had openly rejected the upcoming concept. Although this was not surprising, since the larger number of percentages of corporations, owned by those of a taller stature, dispute the validity of the legislation and its usage capability.

“How tall we are seems to matter a great deal.  There are claims that, for men at least, being taller than average carries advantages in terms of relationships with other workers, earning more and being more likely to be promoted quicker.” stated the Independent, one of the first British newspapers, except for the guardian to tackle the societal height issue. Short men do not fare well in American politics -only five presidents have been shorter than the average. Once, a study distinctively displayed that Americans may be rather aware of height, for in every age category, from the ages of 20 to 84, the subjects claimed to be taller than they actually were. However their reasoning behind overstating their height was seemingly complex.  One presumption may be that in Western culture height is highly sought after, being taller is almost equivalent to being stronger, fitter and more able. This phenomena is more commonly observed in males. There is less information on women, yet it is a common factor that taller men prefer shorter females. The taller female counterpart, I have professionally observed, more often than not rejects the shorter males offered to her, yet struggles to acquire a taller partner that possesses similar traits to the short counterpart.
An interesting phenomenon in relation to height has been published in a recent article in The New Yorker. Our height is determined by the growth of the legs and body. That of the legs is most intimately understood. The leg, from femur to toes, grows out from the body of the embryo as a small structure initially approximately a centimetre long, and continues to develop  until the end of adolescence, which would be an estimate of 16 years later. “The growth characteristics of the limb are specified when it is still very small. There are special growth plates near the ends of the bones and these determine the growth, and muscles are pulled along by the growing bones. In these growth plates, it is cartilage cells that are growing, which are then replaced by bone.”

In the final stages of growth, for the vast majority, the two legs are increasingly similar in length, yet there was, in all those years, no communication at all between them. Growth appears to be more reliable than originally conceived. This amount of equal growth without interacting became a fact that a distinguished physicist refused to acknowledge. In addition, this is also accurate of both arms. “Growth is affected by hormones and environmental influences such as diet, and these affect both limbs equally.”

The records of the heights of soldiers in Northern Europe dating back over a thousand years were reviewed in the matter. And consequently it was revealed that height was a significant element in AD800, and after 200 years of warfare, in the 17th century, a shorter height became the average. It is a common fact that the infantry prefers individuals of a taller height. Short individuals are more often placed in logistics and intelligence.  Charlemagne was over 6ft in height, yet the those troops that stormed the Bastille were 5ft on average. It should be noted that well-bred officers were approximately 3 inches taller. In America, around the 18th century,  white colonists were around 5ft 9in, and even slaves were just 1in shorter. Whilst there was a minor decrease in height at the time of the Civil War, the first actual change can be observed in the First World War, since the standard American soldier was 2in taller than the average German soldier. Yet this would be reversed within  50 years, as male Europeans grew taller while Americans did not.  Within modern society, Northern Europeans are several inches taller than the American citizen, whose average height is 5ft 9.5in. With a high probability the Dutch could be considered the country with the tallest population. The average male being 6ft 1in. Historically, a growth increase occurred in the 19th century, and appears to pertain to the country’s economic prosperity. The gradual decrease in height in the United States may be resultant of the widening gap between the upper and lower classes, including the effects of the fast-food diets. Research discovered the loss of height by Americans in comparison Northern Europeans takes place in infancy and adolescence, thus inadequate postnatal care and faulty eating habits became the causal factor. Although it has been a widely tested outcomes that individuals regularly feasting on Junk food are overall shorter and weightier. The ingredients of most fast food being unclear due to countless lawsuits, the effects may not be effectively measurable. For instance, the Tesco’s beef burger scandal, revealing that the beef burger contained less cow than expected, but more horse. In fact, approximately 75% horse meat. Although one may never be entirely certain of the full contents of “ready meals” and so forth, the healthier options appear to be fresh, organic food without added preservatives etc.
In my professional opinion, however, I am of the view that more than 80% of height is predetermined by genetics, and that attempting to prompt further growth, through hypnotherapy, medication or diet, may only provide an inch or two at most During my own research in the subject, I segregated two groups, those with shorter parents and those with taller parents. All males and females were in between 15-17 years of age. For a two week period, the “short” group would be fed healthily with organic foods without any snack or junk foods. The “tall” group would be fed on junk food only. Surprisingly, within that week, most males and half of the females that feasted on junk food grew approximately 0.5-1.5 inches regardless. With about 15%, there’s seemed to be very little change. Whereas the other group, referring to the shorter statured individuals, grew 0.5-1.0 inches, if at all. 65%, if not 75-80%, of them displayed little alterations in height. Afterwards, the diets were swapped, and the difference eventually was minimal. There were very few males that were affected by the junk food diet in the means of height and growth.

Nonetheless, height discrimination is not merely a phenomenon observed in the male gender, during the surveys conducted, it was noted that a large percentage of short woman do not necessarily feel taken seriously by their tall counterparts and the majority of tall men. It was also observed that there was a distinct lack of promotions in the before nicolas-sarkozy-carla-brunimentioned category of females. Within the modelling and film industry woman underneath 5’7-5’9ft are increasingly rare, truth be told, the actual requirement is 6’0ft and up. In fact, Halley Berry had continually proclaimed that she was being stereotyped into particular film roles, until she was given the part of “Storm” in the X-Men movie series. It should be noted that the character Storm was in actuality a 6’6ft African tribal princess. However, in the dating world, it is quite commonly known that females are more likely to select the taller individual due to societies image of the ideal woman, she appears mostly slender and short as a matter of fact. Tall woman are more likely to be successful in business, yet short ones are more likely to be married. Overall, it was observed that most females generally only reach to the males shoulders and that equally tall couples or equally short pairs have become more of a rarity.

In conclusion, there definitely appears to be a large unspoken issue in regards to height within modern and ancient society, whether it may be an unconscious urge or simple preferences in mating, the phenomena of height discrimination has evidently spread through the core. Although there are females that prefer shorter men or males of equal height, they seem to be few and far in between, yet they are still present. Throughout gaining an understanding of the concept, countless men involved in the survey (which were below the height of 5’8ft) described exceedingly negative partnership experiences that undoubtedly altered their perception of females. Often those interviewed that were engaged in a permanent or long-term partnership stated that their current relationship was the only one, which was not influenced by height. Numerous descriptions of affairs with taller individuals generally followed or being left for a taller male. Nonetheless, the influence of height on a behavioural level is clearly evident in daily life and frequently short individuals of either gender are not necessarily supported through the process of accepting their bodies as they are. Truthfully, accounts of self-mutilation from a young are, even childhood, due to the reinforcement of negative beliefs by parental figures or peers rather common. In my professional opinion, the effects of alterations in height and their behavioural responses require further academic attention in order to adequately minimize the psychological harm obtained by the individual. Currently, the problem is being mostly suppressed by those that are affected by it. It is in the least bit surprising that all industries would undergo a drastic shift, if heightism were to become known as a more widely spread phenomena or true fact. Height discrimination is merely another form of sexism, another form of racism…It is one of the last “–isms” to be tackles and to become aware of. Most tall individuals laugh the matter of and simply change the subject whilst others rigidly deny its existence, yet all the evidence collected strongly supports the theories. In my personal view, it is merely one of the last unchecked discriminations that continues due to the fact that the system is predestined for it to continue. Evidently, the richer half of society is the taller one, therefore the genetic predisposition to birth equally tall children is increasingly more likely, which then perpetuates the cycle further.
