Why is it so important for the guy to be taller than the girl?

This is a question that has been lingering in my mind for a while.

How come so many people are obsessed with the man being taller than the woman in a relationship? Some people even go as far as to make fun of tall women and short men, and often they outright refuse to date these people. I just don't understand.

I've been hearing "protection" a lot, but is this true? And if this is true, why is protection so important?

As @Mesonfielde pointed out, why don't you take self-defense classes or carry pepper spray?

And how come a taller man makes you feel protected? After all, tall does not automatically mean strong. I'm genuinely curious.
