The media is against us. They’ll do anything to make us look like a joke. They chose a comedian on set to look like a fool with SFTS, then chose this silly photo of Joe mid motion while also making the video as short as possible. If they took us seriously, they would’ve picked an appropriate video still, picked the right person to discuss heightism seriously with SFTS, and made the video longer.

I've seen many, MANY, youtube videos and I've rarely seen one where "they" attempted to display one of the people in the video in a contorted mid-motion frame that displays before the video can be started. I noticed this as soon as I saw this displayed the first time. It is an attempt to make me look like I'm woozy or drunk. This is the image that they wanted to go through the minds of people viewing it. If you notice, the comments were turned off too. In the other BBC interview on my website, the one where my comments were aired along with such a notable as Dr. Dror Paley, instead of describing me as the webmaster at SupportForTheShort.org or an activist for short people, they described me as someone who, "has not grown since he was 15 years old". However, in contrast, some silly actress from NYC whose comments were also aired, was given FREE ADVERTISING right on the page - www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0509h3k - in the form of a 1:44 audio clip entitled: "The shortest working model in New York City".
The above lends credence to my claim that the media - especially the media out of the UK - has a war on against men. But at least they did air some relevant comments that I made and they did finish up the segment with one of my comments. I'll give them that at least.
Interesting. I saw two different women who talk about what it’s like being short in Tedx Talks YT videos. If anybody talks about the seriousness of heightism, it has to be from a woman, for some reason. I guess they get more clicks than if it was a male representing anti-heightism.
