Negative Documentary?

I found a trailer for a documentary called "TALL GIRLS - A Story Of Giants" on youtube and I'm a little unsettled about the message it's perpetuating. At one point a doctor says a women could never be happy with a body size of 190cm (roughly 6'3"). I'm 6'3" and perfectly happy with my body.

I don't know if I'm reading this the wrong way, but does anyone else find this offensive? For the most part the women interviewed seem to be self-deprecating.


I agree with k_peacii-- don't let height be a defining factor in a potential partner. I definitely understand where you're coming from with that fear because I also prefer to have partners who are taller than me, but they seem to be few and far between.
Thank you! Yep, they sure do, I find that I'm usually the tallest person in a building, and I'm only 5'10"! I think we like to breed the height out of our people in Northern California. :)

Height in my partner isn't the problem at all, it's that potential partners have a problem with my height.
