Tall vs. Ugly: Let the Battle Begin

Since when does tall = ugly?

I can’t tell you how many times someone has approached me and said “you’re tall ANNND cute.”  Why the elongated “and?”  Is there some unwritten rule that says tall women have to be ugly? 

It really offends me when someone says that because we all come in different shapes and sizes but for some reason a large part of society has labeled the ENTIRE tall race of women ‘homely.’  I have never seen anyone go up to a short woman and say “you’re short ANNND cute.” It just does not happen. 

Every time someone says this, I correct them because if I don’t, I feel like I am part of the problem.  Ignorance is NOT bliss. You (and tall) are amazing and you have to let them know!   

In the end, it doesn’t matter what anyone says because I know for a fact that TALL IS BEAUTIFUL.  Nobody can tell me different. BUT…I really wonder how this wide-spread opinion started? Who decided that tall women are supposed to be hard on the eyes and furthermore why did people take it and run with it?
