You got the usual suspects in the comments, like "I'm a girl and I like short guys," or one of our favorites, the fallacy of relative privation: using cancer patients or whatever other group to downplay OP's problems.
What's funny is that's he's probably heard all this before, and that's one of the reasons why he's getting leg lengthening surgery. Instead of society taking a cold hard look at how hypocritical heightism is in today's politically correct age, people will instead just say "seek therapy bro." Thus he is willing to pay 80 grand and break his legs to escape all that noise.
It's also interesting how butthurt people get at the idea of LL. I can understand the critique against the price and safety, but the backlash seems to go beyond that. After all, some girl who wants a nose or boob job doesn't bother people nearly as much. People usually just say "her body her choice."
No, I honestly think people simply aren't too happy that there exists a way for a short man to no longer know his place. Rather than simply answering his question, does it not seem like those in the comments are in a rush to get him back into line? Like he's rocking the boat too much by even mentioning this topic, so they shush him by treating him like a mental patient who's missed his daily dose of bluepill.
Either way, people refuse to examine why something could cause such mental anguish, to the point where a person is willing to pay tons of money to cripple themselves. Could heightism be the problem? No, it's the short man who's wrong. Therapy will solve that problem in a jiffy.
P.S. Daily reminder to never fat shame women, it might cause an eating disorder.
