The discrimination or prejudice against people of an "abnormal" body size, whether it's height or weight.

"Look at that girl, she's so tall. How weird!"

Discrimination towards people of a different height, usually against people at the extremes of the height range, i.e: Extremely tall people or extremely short people.

Similar to racism but concerning height, not race.

To be sizist is to be discriminatory in relation to height.

Same as sizeism
Jack: I hate that guy, he's freakishly tall!
Jill: Don't be so sizist!

Activist: Sizism is wrong. Height should not be an important factor in judging a person.
