    An angry male of below average height who feels it necessary to act out in an attempt to gain respect and recognition from others and compensate for his abnormally short stature. Also synonomous to little man syndrome.The phenomenon of appearing overly aggressive or assertive. This may be a reaction after repeatedly suffering height discrimnation (heightism) in the workplace, in relationships with women, or elsewhere during socialisation.


    Does anyone run into this kind of guy alot ? Any "below average height" men feel they must overcompensate their personality because of tininess ?

    This pretty much explains the insane asylum that is North Korea.

    I've often debated weather or not being mean gets you places faster. I dont know you outside of RJ but do you think it gets you more guys/respect vers you being nice and sweet ? Or is it just a gay thing ?

    Not now, like in general. When you go out, if your more "smug" with people, vers being sweet, do you think people respect you more ? Not just you but most guys especially below the norm height

    It's a known fact both in the straight world and gay world.. the bad boy jerk persona is considered attractive. icon_lol.gificon_confused.gif

    I see a "badboY" as a sexy man in the dark corner with the ripped jeans kinda way. Not in gay " ooh gurl leemmeee reeeeeaaaaaadddd you ! " way. It seems thats kinda the difference with gays, however this isnt about bitch culture, but height.

    Well, I find it's all part of my charm. I generally like to joke around, at myself and the expensive of others. There is no real harm in it. People who know me well can vouch for it. I have no problems making fun of my height, my sexual adventures and other short comings I may have. I do it all the time on here.

    And the guys I'm generally attracted to get this. I don't expect them to to really think I'm some catty queen like my profile makes me out to be. While there maybe SOME small truth to it, it's all just for fun. And they understand that. In turn, they fuck me in the bum bum....and all is well with the world....


    Understand what I'm saying???



    The only people who can't or won't comprehend this are social inepts like Pazzy and Tanner. They will take everything at face value and try to use something like my Grindr profile against me. But then again, who would want to fuck much less want to be friends with the likes of Pazzy? Like seriously????

    I'm surprised you would ask because this is so common.
    I know quite a few guys with "short man's" disease... including my obnxious brother.

    I had an old line manager who was about 5'6" and very angry. He tried to headbutt me one time on a night out but I just laughed at him. It was great to look at him on LinkedIn and see he is unemployed now. I know that is a nasty thing to say but he was just the worst person to everybody.

    I've seen this a few times in my life. I'm not that tall, but I remember one litte-short-fat came up to me once at a thing I'd gone to and was pissed. He said, "I hate guys like you. How tall are you anyhow?" I was kind of perplexed. I'd never seen the guy before.

    Tall men who get angry in public scare the shit out of people, especially tall black men. Short guys can get as angry as they want, and people will just dish it back to them. I honestly think Jmusmc's personality would not be endearing if he was a big tall guy. His banter would seem much more threatening. Thus, I think some of our responses are based on social conditioning.

    For me personally, I try to smile and make eye contact with the people I interact with in public. I usually find that friendliness is contagious.

    Well I'm 5'3" and most of the time I am gentle as a teddy bear. I can become aggressive when necessary though, especially while I'm working. When I'm on duty I often need to show a little more aggression to make up for my size.

    We have to have big belligerent personalities because otherwise all you damned stupid giants might accidentally trample us. It's self-preservation.

    I a 5'5" and don;t have an aggressive bone in my body and I don't take out my height issues out on anyone else or treat them badly because of it...the only person I do that to is me.
