Twitter exposes heightism

Have a look at the continuous heightism posts that people have been publishing on their twitter feeds:

@IAmJaquansus: I really have a huge dislike for short people idk why.

@ary_yum: I hate short guys.

@KUSHsoRIGHT: It's just something in me that despises short guys. Shallow? I cares none.

@WendyKILLS: There's not much hope for you short dudes.

@OhMyKittyyy: I firmly believe short guys shouldn't be considered real men 😷 I'm sorry no offense

@ASS_TR0L0GY: short guys>>>>> can't be taken serious

@aIexanndra: short guys are the worst.

@itsbeckyparsons: Short men get caught under my feet #Pests.

@WillDavis0: I hate short people.. I will step on you

@boxlogoZebra: Some short people scare me but i know i could beat the hell out of them but they still scare me

@PaperPlaneLir: Short people should be stepping stools for taller people

@KendraDuPont: Ah, I don't see how people date shorter people than them. All short guys have little man syndrome. Thinking they are so tough & badass. LOL.

@DinaYMokbel: I hate short guys!!

This is just a very small sample of the heightism expressed on twitter.

Now if someone expressed these thoughts about black people, women, etc. people would be upset and condemn that type of behavior as racist or sexist. But what do they do most often when the hate is targeting short statured people? They laugh and/or do and say nothing!
