"I think the article speaks for itself. This
young man joins a list of young men who took their own life after being
tormented by bullies who harassed them for the way they were born. The
real problem here is that heightism is such an accepted and even
celebrated prejudice in our society that these sorts of things are bound
to happen. Also take a look at the comment section at the end of the
article. Notice the number of posts blaming Johnathon for taking his
life instead of the bullies who harassed him because of their hate for
short boys. Also notice the number of people who say “he should have
waited until his growth spurt…he may have ended up as tall as the rest
of his peers”.
Notice how none of them say anything like “it’s O.K. to be short”. That never comes out of anyone’s mouth.
