Most people pretend like there's no bias against short men, yet they avoid our genetics like it's a disease, as evident by sperm banks and their height requirements.
It's also funny how people feign empathy by saying, "I want a designer baby that will grow to be tall, because I don't want my son to deal with the heightism I've dealt with."
What a weak way of thinking. We might as well all have white kids. "I only want to breed with whites, because my kids will suffer from less stereotypes." Of course, that would be considered racist.
Instead of further perpetuating prejudice by only wanting tall sons and fathers, how about we stop treating short males like inferior scum? That would be too difficult for this (supposedly) tolerant and educated society, no doubt.
The best part is how people think tall fathers equal tall sons, like short mothers and tall daughters aren't even in the equation. If this really were about eugenics, nobody would breed with women under 5'10 either, because guess what? That's where short guys come from too.
I just find it laughable how Ed Coan or Bert Assirati would not be good enough for these people. Of course, these sperm banks also screen intelligence by using college degrees, so this is typical. Their ideas of intellect and strength are so simple-minded.
I'm just wondering why everyone waited for 5'6 Martin Luther King to kick them in the ass. I guess the tall
People think they can avoid heightism by breeding out short men, but I equate this to 'solving' racism by making everyone the same color. That teaches absolutely nothing about tolerating and embracing human diversity. That's just a sad excuse anyway. Why would a heightist society think any other way?
Imagine a world where designer babies are common, yet you're the one short kid whose parents couldn't afford to make you tall. It would be Hell on Earth... Or Gattaca.
