Toxic Femininity [STUDY] The reasons women want taller men have to do with traditional gender roles and their own insecurities about their fragile femininity

JFL this just shows how common fragile feminity is. Men don’t seem to care about feeling tall or masculine or dominant in a relationship. These women all say a bunch of benevolently sexist shit like “I wanna feel protected” or they say they wanna feel small and feminine or still wanna be shorter even when wearing heels (like as if you wear them all the time)
Several studies (e.g., Courtiol et al., 2010; Salska et al., 2008; Swami et al., 2008) have found that taller women are more likely to relax the requirement that the man be taller than her. Tall women do not necessarily say they would accept a male shorter than them, but they are more likely to say it would be acceptable for the male to be of the same height. For short men, they are more likely than tall men to say they would be willing to date women who are their height or even slightly taller.


Our analysis of the answers students provided in the open-ended questions confirmed these assertions. Immediately we saw gender differences in the importance of height for a potential dating partner. For example, it is worth noting that in all the themes documented in Table 2 our female respondents always, although not always significantly, mentioned the concerns of
a particular theme more than men. This can be a proxy for the reality that discussing the height of potential dates is more important to women than it is to men. Nevertheless there are other critical gender differences that should be noted. When asked about why they had minimum height requirements for who they are willing to date, women discussed several issues connected with a traditional gender expectation for men. For example, these young women discussed looking to taller men to feel protected or secure:
. . . height factors into security for me. When a man is taller I feel more protected and secure. (5 feet 4 inches “Other race”2 woman)
Although I am short, I am not attracted to short men. I could meet the most attractive man, but if he is not at least 5′ 7, I am not interested. Tall men represent protection. I feel safe for some reason. (5 feet 1 inches White woman)
In Table 2, we find that nearly a fourth of the women discussed the desire for protection or security in at least one of their answers whereas barely any men discussed issues of protection or security. It is a clear gender difference in the data. The desire to look up or down into a date’s eyes was not as great of a gender difference. But when our female respondents discussed this theme, it was generally the desire to look into a taller man’s eyes that they wanted. In a sense they desired to “look up” to their date:
As the girl I like to feel delicate and secure at the same time. Something just feels weird in thinking about looking “down” into my man’s eyes. There is also something to be said about being able to wear shoes with high heels and still being shorter. I also want to be able to hug him with my arms reaching up and around his neck. (5 feet 3 inches White woman)
It’s always been my personal preference to be able to look up into a guy’s eyes instead seeing him face to face. (5 feet 5 inches “Other race” woman)
This need to feel the man is taller may be tied to another characteristic that came out of our data. Some of the women sometimes felt the need to feel small compared with her partner in order to feel more “feminine.” For exam- ple, one respondent (5 feet inches Hispanic woman) noted that “... if a guy is too short or shorter than me, it makes me feel less feminine.” The average male is biologically taller and larger than the average female so it is not sur- prising that the females in our sample expected to date taller, larger men. However, the desire to date taller men to gain a perception of femininity seems a social, rather than biological, construct indicating the beliefs our society places on the male-taller norm.
Our sample of college-attending women wanted tall men for a variety of reasons, but some of those reasons tend to indicate preference for tradi- tional gender expectations. As such, it was notable that about 10% of the women wanted a taller date so that they would feel comfortable wearing high heel shoes. Such shoes are clearly a measure of meeting gender norms as only women are expected to wear such shoes. Images of men as strong protectors that women can look up to even in their heels clearly comport with traditional Western gender images. High heels are not used as a height equalizer with men, but as a social marker of feminine attractiveness. Given this social expectation, the young women in our sample often noted the need to find a man taller than them even when wearing high heels. It was clear in the minds of many female respondents that the height of a man helped her to engage in her traditional gender role. In fact a small percent- age of women overtly stated that being with a taller man made them feel more feminine. “I hate to rule it out, but I feel as if dating a much shorter man would make me feel large and unfeminine” (5 feet 7 inches White woman). Thus, many of the reasons women provided for desiring a taller mate can be tied to a desire to adhere to traditional gender roles. They also gave reasons consistent with evolutionary biology, such as expressing that taller men made them feel more secure and protected, both common responses.

That's why height matters less, hating an ugly man is inherent for them, hating a short man isn't

Same with gamers. They say "Gamers are afraid of powerful women" and then a few days after Re8 where some literal cannibalistic vampire monster girls appear those racist and misogynist gamers fill the Internet with (sometimes really cringeworthy) femdom-fanart of them. Everything they say could be inverted and then you have the truth. Furthermore, certain individuals also say that men don't want to date taller women, while the opposite is true - women want tall men and when you are a tall woman you want an even bigger man (=means even smaller percentage of potential partners).

I'm sure a tall man is going to be a great protector against a 5'5 dude with an AR4 or a handgun.

What a joke. Feel safe is just woman speak for "makes my hole wet"

If they really wanna feel protected they should just walk around with a military surrounding them or, at the least, armed gun-owning bodyguards.

violence against men and crimes against men are far more common. Women are benevolently sexist. In fact, studies show that women (even feminists) are attracted to benevolently sexist men and find them far more attractive than woke feminist men.

I never liked short women, for some reason everyone adores them.

Ideal is 1 "head" shorter than yourself. (I'm 1.80).

Fuck that babysitter/father-daughter larping bullshit, I want a girl who is as worthy to be my equal as possible, not that that is ever going to happen lol.

The best height in a woman IMO is 5’6 to 5’8. Some women look best at 5’6 and some look best at 5’8 depending on the woman. 5’0 isn’t a dealbreaker but it’s a bit of a turnoff.

I feel like short women have unironically bad personality and napoleon complex. It's like they are projecting these traits on short men when in fact the only ones that have a fucked personality are short women. Considering that women in general are emotional and retarded I don't think this is false at all.

Women are usually more sexist then men. When women are sexist it’s tolerated or even encouraged, when men are they’re harshly criticized/shamed.

Women don’t really want equality they just want as many advantages as they can amass under the guise of “”””equality“”””. They neither acknowledge nor give a damn about male issues so why should I be bothered to care or acknowledge theirs? Like Gymcelled said, women’s “problems” are often men’s dreams. Men would kill to be treated like women are treated instead of how we’re actually treated which is as were perceived — the vast majority of men are forgotten, disposable, and replaceable.

It’s like the old Chris rock line, “men are only valued if they provide something” (etc).

Women also care way more about your sexual history than men do

One of the biggest reasons foids want tall BFs is because they see tall guys as status symbols. It's like owning a Ferrari but in terms of height. They want to brag about having having tall BFs to their friends. Their friends approval means a lot of to women.

The title says it all. But it was legitimate concern during evolutionery history. The short or weak men cannot protect the tribe from predators. And moreover the Alpha guy will mate with the woman and secure good gene and the weaker guy will not fight him fearing for his life. And this leads to better offspring. the tribes were small.

The thing is, they don't just want taller men, they want tall men and sometimes the tallest men.

Cope it's just genetics. If social rules could change the dynamics of dating, white chads would be the worst race right now and black and asian soys would be the best.

Might explain the sexual success of low T/frail tall guys who lack fighting success vs their equally weak manlet counterparts. Idk didn’t even read the whole thing. I doubt it’s something to do with foid psychology like in a vacuum or that they like tall guys because of something that wrong with them. Foids of pretty much all species breed with the biggest and most dominant males.

Males have these urges too, more stronger. But they learned to suppress them, because society tells them.

Foid logic, if the guy is 6'1+, he can protect her.

I got my money 100 percent of the time on a 5'6 - 5'8 165-180lbs dude with a wrestling, weightlifting, and BJJ background.

Over a 6'1 170lbs twig JBW guy that plays soccer.

Good stuff kemper. Sad world but you show us it really is all based on genetic bullshit. Makes me feel a little better seeing people calling it for what it is. Now all we need is for chads to start saying “women treat short dudes like shit”. Then the world would listen. But that’s pure fantasy because most people only care for themselves.

Women don’t care about how jacked a shorter guy is. Taller is seen as hotter and they want to be validated by showing they are good enough for a “hot” guy. Women will always choose a taller guy over a jacked shorter dude who is handsome af. Height is the single most important trait to women.. studies show it etc..

I think that’s kind of social science cope tbh
Height is a dimorphic trait aka men have it more than women, a lack of height subtracts from dimorphism in males and bottlenecks masculinity paper is probably written by feminists that think it’s all the patriarchy

American women are FAT and masculine. Its as simple as that. Thats why they all seem to want tall men. Why do you think practically none of them date 5'6 145lbs Asian men who look 10 years younger than their age with barely any facial hair. And on average have around 4.5 inch erect penis'.

Just like how the majority of men feel that they have small penis' (The average erect penis is anywhere from 5.1 to 5.75 inches).
Every dude who has a 5 incher wants to feel big by having a petite 5'3 to 5'5 foid that weighs around 95 to 100lbs. But of course as every dude knows, getting to stick their dick in any vagina is considered a blessing nowadays so they settle for whatever.

It’s biology height is a dimorphic trait men have more of it and shorter height is correlated with femininity.
Being short as a man doesn’t exactly make you feminine but it bottlenecks your masculinity really hard
