Why do you feel there are so many short people especially online (like those on Reddit) that are against things like leg lengthening & elevator shoes?

Cuz some people are content with who they are and they just don't want it.

There isn't a simple answer. Just do what you think is best for your life

Lifts are bad for your ankles and feet.

Because it doesn't solve the underlying problem which is height discrimination. Because they don't think surgery is the solution, that you should accept and be happy with your body. Because they think it's too expensive and/or barbaric.

It's like asking, why don't all overweight people get surgery? It's not that simple.

There is no such thing as height discrimination. Attractive qualities are always preferred. Otherwise soon there will be dck size discrimination. Lol

Just because it's not as severe as other forms of discrimination, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.  It's also very much present outside of dating, for instance, in the workplace, where taller people are more likely to be promoted, and there's a positive correlation between income and height.

Heightism just really falls under the umbrella of "Lookism", if you want to call it that. It's just a sub-branch.

Look at the employees of stores - specially clothing stores. They tend to be taller than average if men, and better looking/slimmer than average if women. Societies are superficial and managers know that. They also hire based on looks. It makes sense for them anywhere where people will see their employees. Height is just one of the factors in the looks of a man.

Regarding the positive correlation between income and height, that's just Americans, the Swedes, and the Dutch being obsessed with making these studies. I'm sure this would also hold true for attractive people (i.e. attractive people make more money on average, establishing a correlation). However, websites would be more reluctant to publish any such findings with the ease they publish those "findings" about height.

Android even posted, one day, a study showing that taller people made more money, on average, when employed by others, but there was no difference in income among the self-employed; no such correlation with height, in the latter case. It's just obvious that the best looking people will make more money in any workplace where their looks are an advantage, and that they will also have an easier time being hired.

Yes I do want to add, before doing this surgery, ask yourself if you have optimized your life to the fullest extent possible (job/career, personality, etc).

Yeah of course. Says you're a hotel owner, of course you'd hire tall handsome people to decorate the reception area because short ugly people would drive the customers away creeping them out. For the security guards, also tall big men to make your guests feel secure. What's so strange about that?
