That's Google Search. Odd isn't it?

Yeah my guess is that it's because of all the fake articles and posts created by women to make us feel better.

It means that there are more webpages with the term "I love short men" than there are with the term "I love tall men". Why are there more pages with the term "i love short men"? For the same reason there are more pages with the term "I love black men" (over 1.3 million) than "I love white men" (less than 200,000). People feel the need to sympathize with the oppressed.

It is odd, however, when I did the search myself it was 44,100 for "I love Tall men" and 82,900 for "I love Short men".  Not a big difference, but I can tell you what I've seen in the REAL world.  I live in a very big city, and it is quite rare for me to see a woman walking with a man her height or shorter.  It is quite rare for me to see a woman with a boyfriend or married to someone their height or shorter.  It has ALWAYS been this way.  I don't consider myself a biased observer either.  If I see 1 in 200, I'm lucky.  Also, Tall men are not demeaned, degraded, belittled, and despised because of their tall stature, short men do seem to be, and it is more than seeming.  Tall men are praised and lauded for their tall stature.  Tall stature is held up as a model for men (as if people could possibly choose their height) No one calls someone a Giant to demean them.  However many short men are demeaned with the word "midget", (and lots of other demeaning terms).  When you call a man a "midget", or "shrimp", or "runt", it is UNDERSTOOD that you have belittled them.  Go to dictionary.com and look up the words:

Nigger
Spic
Kike
Sambo
Spade
bitch
cunt
towel-head
gook
dyke
queer
faggot
tranny

- and you will get a cavalcade of "Disparaging and offensive" or "Extremely disparaging and offensive".  Then look up the words -

shrimp
runt
midget
pipsqueak
shortie
half pint
little man

- you will get a cavalcade of "informal" 's  under the definitions.  I especially like the definition of the word "runt" -

a person who is small and contemptible:

That runt causes most of the trouble at the meetings.

It's strange but I don't see any disparaging and offensive terms directed at ANY OTHER GROUP, defined like this.  Now How do you explain this?

I'll tell you how I explain it:  Heightism against short people and short men in particular is an accepted and even celebrated prejudice.  Not even a dictionary will call a spade a spade.  (no pun intended)  The extent of this is mind-boggling.

It depends on your location. People from different countries get different results (you can see this yourself by using a proxy), and I'm not sure about this but I remember reading that the search results might be different for two Americans in different states as well.

One would think that a comment would be made about my FAR MORE RELEVANT observations relating to the definitions of dictionary.com concerning the differences in those definitions, i.e. defining disparaging and offensive labels about short people as "informal", rather than "disparaging and offensive" like all the others for all the other groups, but no.  Instead I get a comment about an incidental difference in the number of hits.

This is the reason WHY this blatant hypocrisy with respect to short people continues - Apathy on the part of the short, and not wanting to face reality.

Short people were never enslaved or executed though, so you can't compare the word "runt" with the N-word or Kike. And words like f*ggot and b*tch are just vulgar and distasteful.

What?!  Who's enslaved in this country??  And what does that have to do with the relevant points I made in my post concerning the acceptability of heightism???

Black people were enslaved in the past. Obviously calling a black person the n-word is far worse than calling someone a runt.

OK fine. (Although that has NOTHING to do with my post) Dictionary.com (and some other online dictionaries) define disparaging and offensive terms against short people as "informal".  They completely condone - by those definitions - the wanton and egregious belittling of short people by giving obviously extremely disparaging terms a virtual OK, but you choose to give a non-seguitor here and say Black people were slaves.  You're obviously implying that because Black people were enslaved two centuries ago, short people should just shut up and tolerate wrongs perpetrated against them yesterday AND today, which makes no sense.

Where did I say that? All I'm saying is that the words runt or little man are nowhere near as offensive as the n-word. That's why the n-word and other words like kike are listed as disparaging but words like runt are not. We call bad kids runts too. Imagine calling a black kid the n-word. They're not on the same level.

You don't have to say it.  You implied it.  I never said the word runt was as bad as the n-word.   You just took it upon yourself to imply that I did.  And the N-word is just one word.  I posted a number of other words there, but you chose to cherry-pick the n-word and subtly chastise me for daring to elevate heightism with racism, which I didn't do by the way.  I didn't even imply that the word runt was WORSE than the n-word. 

What I stated in my last post was:

"Dictionary.com (and some other online dictionaries) define disparaging and offensive terms against short people as "informal".  They completely condone - by those definitions - the wanton and egregious belittling of short people by giving obviously extremely disparaging terms a virtual OK"

The above is my main point.  WHY DON'T YOU RESPOND TO THIS AND CUT THE BULLSH*T?

I did respond to it. You implied in your first post that the words in the second group (runt, shrimp, little man etc..) are just as disparaging and offensive as the words in the first group (nigger, kike, faggot etc...). They aren't. For example the word faggot is more offensive to me than the word runt.

They don't condone it. It's just that they do not consider such words to be as bad as words like the n-word. Words like runt and little man are on the same level as words like fatass, ugly, fatty, baldie etc... They're not extremely disparaging to me.

You're wrong.  They don't consider the disparaging words directed at short people to be disparaging AT ALL, period, end-of-sentence, merely "INFORMAL".  They defined those words very clearly with the word "informal".  It's right there for anyone who can read English.

You stated in the thread about Danny Devito-

"I have a very hard time in life being 5'6"

That should tell us something about the level of delusion and denial here, things that I discuss in my broadcasts on my website.
