What's your opinion on giving boys with normal, albeit short final height, human growth hormone?
Personally, as with surely everyone in this forum, I wish I had been given HGH during my teenage years, to reach a higher final height and be more satisfied with my height, since I'm absolutely not satisfied with my current height. However, should children who are at a normal, shorter height be presented with this option, even if they are not unhappy with their height? My opinion is that HGH can never solve the problem of height neurosis and the inequality of male heights on a societal level, no matter how much of it we could distribute to kids. Even if we could administer HGH to every boy who is projected to reach less than 170 cm as final height, as a result, the average height would rise and now 170 cm kids would suffer from height neurosis more. If we would administer it to every boy with a final height of less than 175 cm, the 175 cm kids would feel more short and develop height neurosis, and so on and so forth. And even with HGH, some would not reach those heights. A boy with the genetic potential of 165 cm might never reach 175 cm, even with HGH and optimal nutrition.
So in conclusion, HGH can only help boys on an individual, specific level, and even then it's only "passing on the suffering to someone else", since other kids/men will feel short as a result. A society can impossibly solve the problem of men suffering from height neurosis with HGH, even if it would be successfully given to all kids. The only solution of solving height neurosis is psychological help, surgery (again, only on an individual level) or a way to restart human growth after the growth plates fuse, such as with stem cells, artificial growth plates, and other futuristic solutions. Another important aspect for society is to value and cherish shorter men more, since height variation is a natural thing and mo matter how tall people are, there will always be shorter men and women.
