Thought: Short Envy

3 Apr

I had a random thought just now and thought this the best medium to express it in.

What if instead of gaining weight we gained height?

What kind of society would that create? What type of change would there be in dynamics? Instead of skinny models plastered on the front of Vogue, short people, only 4 feet tall would be considered the norm. Tall people would be obese or would it be a new word, like giantbese. Basketball would be as entertaining as Biggest Loser. Stripes and well fitted clothes wouldn’t be able to hide how you’ve grown over the winter vacation.

Maybe being different sizes wouldn’t be a big deal, maybe we wouldn’t have eating disorders.

What are your thoughts?

    This would be interesting. It would reverse our entire society, since taller people are more likely to succeed and be paid well in our current reality. Luckily women can wear heels…
