for those who don't know what I'm talking about: the height of a female is determined more by the height of her father and the height of males by their mothers.
I just find it odd with how much guys on here obsess over their own heights that so many guys actually prefer female half a foot or more shorter than them. it's just really bizarre.

A person's height is determined by a lot more than just their patents' dominant genes. Both parents could very easily be carrying recessive genes passed on from previous ancestors, which could lead to a much taller child.
If both patents dominant genes resulted in them being short, but they each pass on a recessive gene to their child, that child could end up being much taller than them.
Genetics is a little bit more complicated than "short parents equals short child".2
