For years I’ve used the line that I’m 5’4” average height for a woman, and this tends to get a chuckle and break a lot of the tension of people with how short I am.
As long as you guys are fun to be around and willing to work on your becoming better people I find that people don’t seem to care too much about height. So here is a little joke for you guys to try out if you want to!
This looks pretty similar to the kind of behavior I read qualifies as a "garmin". Does he not realize it's only "funny" because the concept of a man being the same height as most women is laughable, not because it's actually funny? Now hundreds of more soon to be garmins will be testing this out only to "break" the tension about their shortness. I noticed A few comments telling him the truth at the very least, but it seems to be falling on deaf ears. I'm not 100 percent certain, but i thought this belonged in the Garmin folder because it seems like textbook self-deprecation from a short guy who wants others to know he's not like the others.

It's hard to believe this guy is a man. He admits he willingly compares himself to a woman. He admits he disparages and willingly emasculates himself in what would seem to me to be a vain attempt to avoid disparagement and emasculation from others. It's just hard to take some of these "Garmins" sometimes. Their level of self-degradation is just astounding. Even the photo of him that he uses for his avatar (I assume that's him in the photo) depicts him with his head down and his arm supporting his head in a gesture of shame and submission. He uses this self-flagellating line to "break the tension?!" What tension?? If others have a problem with his height, that's what we call HEIGHTISM. I wonder if a Black man would compare himself to a monkey in front of Whites to "break the tension"? I wonder how many fat people compare themselves with elephants to "break the tension"? I wonder if a member of ANY group would engage in this type of self-emasculating behavior as a way of escaping prejudice against their group. This moron goes on the state:
"Hey I’m a dude, just trying to help out lol. In my experience which definitely isn’t everyone’s if you bring up the thing and show you are not sensitive about it people really don’t make fun of it. It’s basically the case of the parent making the joke that the kid doesn’t use anymore. I could definitely be wrong, but was hoping injecting a little humor could help some people on this reddit out"
Just another little Garmin trying to show everyone that he's not sensitive about his height. Comments like these give me very little hope for the short-statured. It's just so incredibly pathetic. What he really should be shameful about is his groveling and obsequious behavior, NOT his height. He's not in control of his height, but he is control of his behavior.
On a more positive note a few comments were half sensible like this one -
"Nope. Not going down that road and it has nothing to do with whether or not I'm a fun person. I'm a man, not a medieval court jester, circus clown, or a joke being made by Kevin Hart . . ."
On a real heightism message board (like this one) every member should give someone like this guy the trouncing that he so richly deserves. People like this just refuse to face reality. They need to red-pilled BIG-TIME.
