And it got posted to our favorite subreddit https://www.reddit.com/r/short/comments/gtebwj/short_statured_policeman_being_bullied_by/
I love how all the garmins are ignoring how this is literal schoolyard bullying, very few people actually seem outraged in the comments like they should be. For all the time they spend fighting and condemning incels, they don't realize have 1000x more backbone then they do and don't have their heads completely up their asses like theirs' truly, and actually talk about heightism itself.
They love treating the symptom rather than the cause. They love lecturing angry guys about life, ignoring how these men wouldn't be angry in the first place if half the same effort was put into holding women accountable.
I take it you're a frustrated r/short poster who has looked elsewhere for truth and has found it. Am I correct?
Not really. I tried posting couple of comments but he deleted it. That place is too cucked, not worth it. They will constantly gaslight short guys.
You guys should focus on the reddit you have created. That’s where most short men will find you.
First, welcome to the forum! We haven't had new participants around here in a while so I'm glad you found us. As far as whether we should focus on Reddit, I certainly encourage everyone to post there, especially on r/heightdiscrimination, but personally, I have no business on Reddit. For years, we've tried Reddit from numerous angles and none of it has worked. In addition, Reddit has gone through a perpetual dumbing-down process where all nuanced conversation is viewed as "TLDR" and the age range has tended to shift to a much younger crowd, thus, scholarly or refined viewpoints are less successful on Reddit than they used to be. That's a substantial reason why this forum is tucked into an internet corner separate from the popular sites. We want to be able to discuss the nuts and bolts of the issue, and not just post hit-and-run memespeak that doesn't have a defined end-goal. Even when we did have a loose nucleus of allies on Reddit, nothing materialized because of the perpetually-anonymous, karma whoring, unfocused culture of Reddit.
As far as r/heightdiscrimination goes, yes, that was founded by a member of this forum, but as you can see, that subreddit came screeching to a halt right after it started. If you feel like that sub should be more active, you should post some threads there to give it a shot in the arm. I'm not going to be the one to revive that forum because like I've said before on here, I'm not doing the heavy lifting anymore on these forums, and am looking to pass the torch onto the next generation of anti-heightism participants. Furthermore, we do need a variety of voices, and if I'm any part of the reason people aren't contributing here or anywhere else I participate, I want to stay out of the way to allow other forums to flourish where fresh faces are participating. If others can move r/heightdiscrimination forward, I'll be happy to contribute from time-to-time,but the last thing I need is another project that falls by the wayside because other short men refuse to participate.
I also don't have any plans to pick this forum up and move it to Reddit because this forum was never intended for a mass audience, it was intended for people who know heightism is an issue and want to do something about it by unifying with other like-minded folks. Basically, this forum's intent was to assemble a "Dream Team" we could rely on to have one another's backs so that we could be enough of a force to expand our outreach. If even 1/4 of the 54 forum members(or the hundreds of lurkers) here cared to participate on any level, this forum would've achieved all of the goals it set-out to accomplish, but short men are nowhere near ready to unify enough to achieve even our most modest goals. The issue isn't messaging or marketing, it's an issue of attrition. We're still at a point where short men who find heightism discussion forums only have the drive to participate in temporary fashion, and they fade into the sunset once they see how frustrating this fight is. We also have a tremendous in-fighting issue where we fight each other more than we fight heightists, thus, there are numerous lines drawn in the sand that cause a "crabs in a bucket" effect between the different subsets among us. All of these things are a much more substantial reason for our futility, thus, the belief that we need to participate on Reddit to attract a mass audience is an attempt to treat the symptom rather than the cause. If throwing ourselves among the masses was the best solution, both r/short and r/heightdiscrimination would be bastions of success already. As you can see though, r/heightdiscrimination is gasping for air and r/short has become a one-sided Garmin circus. Once again, it's not the location where we discuss heightism, it's the lack of participation by short men that hinders us.
To view this differently, whoever figures-out a way to get more short men to participate for the long haul solves our most substantial obstacles. For that reason, participation on Reddit or any other site just changes the scenery while not changing the way we do business. This has been the problem for a few decades now. Those who have written books, dissertations, etc. about heightism both before and after the age of Reddit have disappeared because literally nothing has changed regarding "The Silence of The Short" and nothing will change until we have the support of those who readily admit that heightism plagues our society. The nitty-gritty is that it is up to short men to decide when these forums become a unifying force, and at this time, short men have absolutely zero interest in unifying in the name of establishing a society that doesn't treat them as second class citizens.
