Do you think tall people (mainly, men 6'2" and up) ever get jealous at non-tall people towards *anything*? by Mcheetah in AskSaidIt

Is it possible that's part of your problem? If you surround yourself with s@@@@y people, they're going to treat you like s@@@. That's how places like that work. Also, it sounds as though you're still single and dating. That's hard for all sorts of frustrating and unfair reasons, including physical traits and horrible people being horrible to you. You can't (realistically) change your height, buy you can change the people you allow power over you like that. Good on you for already starting to move past that and do your own thing, regardless.
Best of luck to you, my perfectly decent-sized friend. Sincerely.
I don't know, to be truthful with you; back pain from working hunched over really sucks. But I've never been shorter, so I don't know just how much harder/easier it would be. From this side of the yardstick, it feels like it'd be a "grass is greener" situation. I know my friend would switch. I've seen him literally despair over the being treated like a freak, but I don't think his situation applies to most 6'2"-6'5" people.

Not sure if it would qualify as "Tall people problems", but here are the negatives in my life that I would consider height related:
Head-injuries -- I could not tell you how many times I've banged my head on things such as ductwork in basements, low entryways, and cabinets. We're talking full-on concussions. I have an inch-long scar along my hairline that no longer grows hair, from standing up after bending down to get cookware out of a kitchen drawer, and thoroughly conking myself on a cabinet.
Back pain -- every kitchen countertop, every table, every work bench is low enough that you're going to spend hours hunched over, and your back will hate you for it each and every time.
Seating -- from airplane seats where your knees are even with your nipples, to tiny-ass cars where your head touches the roof, you are not the person they get designed it for.
Looky-loos -- Not so much my situation, but I have an even taller friend (7'4") who has legit and chronic anxiety issues from people staring at him, pointing him out to others, and somehow thinking they're being sneaky trying to take very obvious pictures of him without asking. I was honestly taken aback how often the latter happens, when I first started hanging around him, and now I just genuinely feel bad for him whenever I see it; it's been his whole, entire life, and it's just worn him down and beaten him, when it comes to just carefree hanging out in public places.

What's The Dark Crystal?
Imagine if the main guy behind creating things like Sesame Street and The Muppets (Jim Henson) was suddenly given a blockbuster-level movie budget and carte blanc to do as he pleased, and used them to make a rather slow, incredibly immersive fantasy movie about the dichotomy between light and dark, etc. It's obviously an older movie, but it aged at least as well as movies like Labyrinth (which I believe he also had a hand in). Worth a watch, especially if you've got younger kids around to watch it with you.
[–]puppy528 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun - 2 years ago (0 children)
They were just news sites. Yeah; some had biases or political leanings in what they chose to report on and discuss, but that's as far as it went. There really wasn't "fringe" news other than a few shock-jock/clickbait sites and way-out-there places like Time Cube. As "MSM" got more extreme and polarized, those that no longer fit in fractured and split off, and for a while, it was just as you said. But then the "Us vs Them" mentality began to affect those split-off places just as thoroughly as it did MSM, and the result is what you see today.
For an extreme example, look at Reddit and The_Donald. All those users were originally happy Reddit users until Reddit turned into, well, you know. Eventually the rift drove them further down their rabbit-holen and Reddit ever more extreme in punishing them for it until finally banning them altogether, and on their alt site, they can't even voice constructive criticism of their "God Emperor Trump" without being accused of being "not one of them". The whole thing is like some website version of The Dark Crystal, but Jim Henson is still dead and can't fix things between them.

Americans Must Be 'Prepared to Mobilize' If Trump Refuses Election Results: Campaign Group by Drewski in politics
Individually? Get involved. Become an Election Judge. Ensure that there's someone in the room besides an 85 year old who may not fully understand modern voting methods and rules, and an [insert any party here] zealot who may care more about maintaining partisan power than rigorously upholding election law. Also, write or call your local officials and representatives, personally if possible, and let them know, loud and clear, that you do not support grey area issues like vote harvesting or mail-in voting for major elections, and that having the support of you and your peers depends on them not supporting it either.
Culturally, help fight off the divided mentality we seem to have been stuck in for literally over a generation now. It's really not an "us" verses "them" country, no matter how much politics insist upon the contrary; we all just want to work, do well by our friends and neighbors, and provide for our families. Maybe even make the country/planet/etc a little bit better as we do so. "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness", right? Of course we have vastly different ideas on how to do those things. We're different people. But they're still the same basic goals. You want to take away those article's power to pit us against each other over it? Let it go and move on. Tell others to do the same. Yes, there are exceptions and extremists and griefers, and there will continue to be, but we have to stop treating them like they're the norm, and not us.
