Over their shorter counterparts? Like, usually in a group of girls, the tall girls get noticed first and attract the most attention. Beauty pageants place an outstanding preference for tall women (practically none of the miss universe contestants have been under 5'5 and most are model tall.) It seems that the only men who would actively prefer short girls are men who are short themselves, and do so to avoid feeling emasculated. In studies it has been observed that people generally view taller women as more intelligent and capable. Why is this? Why do you think there's such a preference just based on someone's height?
