I just watched the trailer for Tall Girls: A Story of Giants.
I still have tears in my eyes.
The trailer for this movie is both sickening and disheartening. The fact that there are women out there getting surgeries to stop their growth is disgusting…
The fact that the modeling industry is so cookie-cutter that a 6’2” model would have to lie on their resume and say they are 6’ to get jobs, is pathetic…
The fact that a doctor would react to a height of 190cm (roughly 6’3”) with "obviously that’s a body size that a girl can’t be happy with", is just plain repulsive.
While I am excited that there is a movie about tall women, I really hope that the trailer does not reflect the entire message. I am praying that the film isn’t entirely negative because TALL IS BEAUTIFUL! I hope they include some proud tall ladies in the movie so that it’s not another method of reinforcing the false notion that women are (and as the title of the film puts it) giants if their height supersedes the ‘norm’ (by the way, if I ever find norm I am going to crush it, burn it and flush the ashes down the toilet).
Tall is Beautiful. NEVER let anyone tell you different!
SOUND OFF! What do you think of the movie Tall Girls: A Story of Giants?
