There is a lot of heightism at my office.  Where I work nearly all of my female coworkers are at least 5'9" without heels.  Since my female coworkers almost always wear heels, effectively they are 6 foot minimum if not taller.  My male coworkers are also extremely tall being mostly at least 6'1" or 6'2" and taller.  Our jobs involve working with executives and executive assistants who are also tall. 

What's wrong with them?This website focuses on heightism and height discrimination, but they still all exaggerate their height and the heights of others. 5'6" is the new 5'2"? most men are 6'1-6'2"? Almost all women are 5'9" without heels?What is this the misc?

5'9" women are more uncommon that 6'2" men and believe me the latter are not common at all. I don't come across taller men that often. Yesterday I was at a flea market and only 5 of the 100s of men I encountered were taller than me. About a dozen were around my height and the rest were shorter.

It's worse than the misc because they're actually serious.

5'6 is the new 5'2?  WTF???  That's nuts.

I thought the rest was about a single workplace, where it could be true.  I have sort of seen what they are talking about in some limited cases.  It's like how the average height of CEOs is higher than the general population.  For example, I have noticed that female executive assistants/secretaries for high end executives (which are mentioned in the link) do seem taller than aveaege even accounting for heel height.  But they're all taller than 5'9"?  I doubt it.

I do think they're right about people talking about how big their kids are growing.  Almost everyone does that.

In high end/upper class areas the average can be slightly higher, but 6'1+? Even in the Netherlands that's rare, that would mean 6'4-6'5 guys were common, and we all know that's certainly not the case.

6'1" is not rare in the Netherlands at all. It's less than 2 inches above average.

It's not rare in the United States either...

I'm meant it was rare for an average. There aren't many areas where the average is 2 inches higher than the national average, much less 4.
