No one cares about short people

Thumbs Down 
Women have the feminist movement. Homosexuals have the LGBT movement. Blacks have the NAACP. Jews have the ADL. All minorities and groups that suffer from discrimination have have some movement which fights for their rights. All except for short people. It's sad that there is no organization that supports short people and fights against heightism.

Short people are not really a group though. For example short black men identify with their race not with other short white men and they, along with other short minorities and women, are still protected by left wing movements. That's why it's so hard for you guys to form such a group.

If short people are not a group then neither are homosexuals.

Basically agree.  The ties of race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, skin color, etc. far and away trump any cohesion based on height - specifically short stature.  As a matter of fact short people are in general ashamed of their short stature.  This is another barrier to cohesion.  The Tall, on the other hand are damn proud of their height and there are Tall Clubs all over the country and The World.

No, we are a group. Tall people certainly consider themselves to be a group.

Your post make no sense. Shortness is a trait, not an ethnicity. Should there be an activist group for bald people too? Such movements are not going to succeed, for obvious reasons. Ever heard of NOSSA?

Homosexuality is a trait too and look at how successful their movement is.

NOSSA was a scam and a farce.
