Why Hate On Little Guys?!

Why is abuse of smaller people so common and acceptable?

Why is abuse of smaller people so common and acceptable?

I’m graced with 6’5″. But occasionally I meet some huge guy that I need to look up at to talk to and this is always a bit of a confrontation. The psychological effect it has is quite profound.

I guess awe of height is somewhat understandable, it’s about power.

But the automatic abuse of small people, particularly men, actually sickens me a little. It’s quite common and ‘bon ton’ to make horrible and all too easy ‘jokes’ about how ‘size matters’.

But while we’re most assuredly not all created equal and height does indeed have an impact, life is brutal enough as it is and compassion and respect beats disdain always.
