Does the hatred of being tall ever go away? Posted on May 22, 2023 by Anonymous Does the hatred of being tall ever go away?
being tall is cool. try owning it instead
in my experience never fully, but you can learn to stop obsessing over it so you're not thinking about it 24/7. sort've like how sometimes you remember you're going to die and it's a bummer, but you move on with life anyways. some days are harder than others.
advice like is very poor because it doesn't get to the root of the problem, which is learning to accept yourself. unfortunately that's a truly grand undertaking, and I admire anybody that can do it. im not sure i ever will be able to with all the hostility towards tall women.
yeah it's pretty hard to get over cuz my 5'10 cister gets shit for being tall, so like between normal bias against tall women, harder to pass when you're taller, all negative trans stereotypes being tall for some reason which really gets me down personally and also just rarely getting to feel petite and feminine it is hard for me to just ignore my height and "own it"
it is very hard yep yep but what can you do? Let's think about this rationally. Let's find solutions instead of whining all the time. You can't not be tall. You will be tall forever. There are people (a lot of them if you get out of your misery bubble) that find tall people aesthetically pleasing. Get into that circle, follow people who are like you, who look like you, learn who to style your body, and let go of the idea that a woman has to be short. This is a process but at least try taking the first step. I come here from time to time and it stills seems like you people are hoping to wake up one day and look exactly like you want to. It won't happen. You've gotta consciously make changes to stop these self deprecating thought patterns
>Get into that circle, follow people who are like you, who look like you,
you give good advice but with 5'10+ women being like 2% of the population this isnt exactly easy to find. there is negative reinforcement for us tall women every time we even leave our homes
>2% of the female population
it's something I'm trying to do but everyone reminds me of it cuz I'm a repper so they think they're complementing me. but yeah I'm trying to accept I can't change it it's just hard, like idk even clothes as a 6'4 woman will be impossible but yeah I'll try my best. I'm certain it'll get better when I actually go for it, I'll get hrt soon
yeah, like I said I'm a repper but if I can pass I'll be fine being tall, it's just harder to pass because of it. and yeah I can be feminine otherwise but still kinda sucks idk.
hey if you are getting shit for being a tall woman at least that means you pass and are seen as a woman. you may never be "petite" but there is no reason why you can't be feminine.
The key is to be *hot* and tall. If you're hot then people's reaction to you will be "step on me mommy", if you're ugly and tall people are more like "what a gross giant freak in a dress". Even if you pass, btw. If you read as female but are still ugly (many such cases) then height still makes you look worse
That really doesn't help
I'm not talking shit abt anyone
kill yourself then ig
then what would help? getting a chainsaw a cutting off some centimeters? God nothing works for you people
I am not being unreasonable. Saying
>just be hot
>just be confident
i literally said the same thing though. self-confidence is a grand undertaking.
Them what would help. Answer the question.
Those are the things you need. You literally just need confidence and let go of that insecurity, but what do you expect? Us to make a hex in here that will rid you of it? you need to do that work yourself. nothing else will help
no, never I'm 6'1 and it has always and will always bother me. I like being tall, just not this tall. I'd be perfectly happy at 5'10
the fact that cis women can be this tall (I have two cis f cousins who are 6' and 6'1) doesn't really matter to me because I'm still taller than 99.9% of cis women, and 90% of men
>makes you stand out everywhere, which puts you under more scrutiny, which makes you more likely to get clocked
>significantly shrinks your dating pool
>literally cannot be fixed, "leg shortening" is a meme and not done cosmetically
people like and
say "oh you have to own it", "you have to be hot and tall" but people tell me I'm hot and it makes absolutely no difference to how I feel about it at all
it fucking sucks.
yeah. i don't wish I was hot, I wish I was cute. I wish I was cute and small and had people see me as a poor pathetic traumatized girl who deserves to be protected, like an injured bird. But no one views 5'10" trannies like that.
idk I don't want people to see me as pathetic and traumatized lmao, I just want to blend in a bit more
i mean yeah but ig people who know me and know my life.
I wonder how it looks from all the way up there
I always felt tall women were very elegant ngl
I don’t think anyone has ever described me as “elegant”
Do u even attempt to pass? Are u even on hrt. If so, how long? Also how old r u?
Don't talk shit about my future wife Mia.
it is an insecurity. different people deal with it in different ways, some let is fester, which i would recommend not doing.
best idea is to psychoanalyze your childhood or get a therapist to walk through that with you, so you can understand where you learned the fear of being different.
or just embody the mommy dom personality or something, sure you would like being shorter but what would that really change? most cisfems i know are enthralled with the idea of being taller
my goal is to learn to accept my height and try to keep it from letting me enjoy life without pretending it's not something I don't like.
No. I’m tall and fat and have been full time for 15 years. I was skinny and hot for 8 years and it never went away. Now I’ve been fat for 7 years and it’s double awful. I am living my worst trans nightmare and it doesn’t get easier. At least I pass. I pass as a tall fat unlovable midwestern garbage woman. The kind where people say oh I’m sure there’s someone out there. There isn’t.
could be worse, you could be a short male. not even slaves or israelites during holocaust have felt such hate that a short male receives on a daily basis
Get asked if I play basketball or volleyball every week is annoying.
You just gotta learn basketball then
If I play with women I'll get killed though.
I thought transgenders are supposed destroy all afabs at sports?
I'd probably be the worst on the team.
Those are a lot of good ones. Unfortunately I still do get hit on by creeps. Really just older guys though.
yeah. once i started to pass i realized being a tall woman is fucking awesome
What are the perks? Fortunately I pass as well but some days I get sad and don't see any positives.
>don’t suffer from misogyny as much
>being taller generally means better proportions, no stubby legs or overlong torso
>you intimidate most shitty men, so less catcalling or getting hit on by gross guys
>men who want to date you are generally more secure in their masculinity (and therefore more chill w u being trans)
>women think you’re a god and envy you
>catnip for women (if that’s your thing)
>less fear of walking alone at night)
>clothes fit you more like they would a model. people notice this and comment
there’s more but these are some of the primary benefits. i told a friend of a friend how tall i was a few days ago (i’m 6’0) and she went on a whole rant about how i was so beautiful and i should model and that i had so many more opportunities due to my height and that she (5’4) always felt that her height held her back and people didn’t take her very seriously
>>don’t suffer from misogyny as much
Being tall gives you a different and equally worse version of misogyny, men are intimidated by you and treat you worse
>intimidated by you
yes, something i mentioned
>treat you worse
not generally, but the guys who treat you shittily are not to be considered. why are you insistent on hating something objectively good about yourself? height is coveted and admired by men and women alike
>height is coveted and admired by men and women alike
Cis women talk about wanting to be shorter all the time what are you talking about
none that i’ve ever met. and again, why the fuck do you care what a few people think? you only get one life and one body. get comfortable, because it’s all you’ve got. and it could be way fucking worse
>Fuck you, your experience is false, just accept your body
wow I'm convinced
yes, welcome to being a tranny. your options are to accept what you've got or repress
i never said your experience is invalid? just that it hasn’t been mine. you initially were trying to invalidate what i said about knowing cis women who wish they were taller lol. and yeah, embrace your body. you can’t get shorter unless you somehow fuck up your back or cut off your legs. so get used to it. there isn’t any other choice. or stay miserable i guess, i’m gonna fuck off and enjoy my life. peace!
Alright then keep hating yourself bitch! who gives a fuck. whinny ass bitch
