No, this has nothing to do with penis length; your dirty mind would go there!

Short shaming is the act of teasing or disparaging a person because of their short stature.

It's a form of discrimination that gets the impunity that racism doesn't. Short shaming has a surprising double standard present in many women: they advocate for the body positivity of themselves and others, yet openly and shamelessly denounce short men.

It's important to remember that height is genetic and unchangeable once a man hits the approximate age of 20; discriminating against it is never a valid criticism. Short men face a lot of discrimination, so just remember to treat them with the respect that everybody deserves. Short shaming is like racism: you're discriminating against a harmless trait that someone cannot change.
