We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded with messages telling us that we need to be a certain way to be successful, happy, and loved. And often, these messages center around our physical appearance. We're told we need to be thin, have perfect skin, and be a certain height.
But how important is height? It's a question that has been asked throughout history, with people having drastically different opinions. Some believe that height is everything, while others think it's hardly a factor. So, what's the truth? How much does height matter?
This 7ft1 r/DiscoFraud on Reddit was harassed for his taller height. He was even told that his livelihood was going against God as he didn't pursue Basketball.
I’m extremely tall (7ft1) and this morning a Christian friend of mine said the fact I didn’t pursue basketball as a livelihood was a slight against God and the gifts he gave me. I hate being this height and I said I was cursed not blessed. He has now blocked me. Who is right and wrong here?
Fellow commentators on Reddit were quick to weigh in with their thoughts.
I doubt he could even jump high enough to block OP
He's an idiot. I'm sure you've got plenty of attributes/skills.
MurderDoneRight was savage, saying:
Yeah, it's a slight against God that he didn't pursue proctology with his head so far up his ass.
Ok-Estate-3531 commented on the part "He has now blocked me":
I was going to say the same some problems just solve themselves
The biases we have developed over thousands of years of evolution are still very much present in our society today. Height matters more than we would like to admit. It's something that we are constantly being judged on, whether we like it or not. But it's important to remember that this bias is based on outdated evolutionary biases, not reality. So don't let anyone tell you that you're not good enough because you're not a certain height!
