I honestly think that the big guy who tackled him was way too aggressive and should be equally shamed, if not shamed even more for his gross overreaction.
Anybody could see that the short gentleman was having an emotional breakdown, anyone with a shred of decency or compassion should have known how to deescalate the situation, and that it certainly wasn't necessary to respond with overwhelming physical force at the very first opportunity against a far smaller and weaker person.
Something makes me very seriously doubt that the big fella would have been so brave if their relative sizes were reversed.
The short guy has some serious problems, but unfortunately for him, every problem he's having just got ten thousand times worse because unfortunately, there's no feeling anymore in our society of fellowship or fraternity. Everybody's on their own and if you have a problem, most people expect you to go kill yourself quietly in your closet but don't you dare bother them or inconvenience them in any way. Back in the day, people would help each other, look out for each other, and it was motivated by genuine care and concern for one's fellow man as an extension of ourselves. People felt more like family to one another. That spirit has almost completely died out. Everybody feels like they're at the end of their ropes, but no one is allowed to cry out or even whimper.
Hopefully things get better from here instead of worse, but all signs point to it getting worse before it gets better.10
The male version of a SJW. What he said really tells me there is SERIOUSLY something wrong with the world and we need to take his cause seriously. I feel for him and his pain, because sadly he is right. People are so nasty to others all because the dating scene cares too much about looks, money and other things that shouldn't matter. He's a 'product' of a failed system that shames you just for being who you are. He's shamed for being short. Yet, all people can look at is just his behavior and mocking him for it. While it's disturbing yes. But if people aren't going to listen to other pleas about these problems, this situation is going to get worse. He was making a statement. And I heard it. NOW what are others going to do about 'Women shaming short men for dating' debate?20
Someone needs to tell him that we all have our problems but not everyone chooses to make others pay for it. Of course, that would require him being an adult. I know a lot of guys who are short and they have dates constantly. Yes no one should’ve said mean stuff to him. He was still wrong to treat others poorly.20
What Girls & Guys Said
He's a pussy.
NOW... I DO get where he is coming from. I hate to say that. Lol. I have done online dating, and I have been ridiculed and rejected for being 5'10" and not 6 feet tall. So, I can only imagine the hate he gets on dating sites for being 5 feet. HOWEVER, online dating is VERY SHALLOW and it's not for everyone. 'nuff said.
Now... here are my criticisms about him:
-He needs to stop blaming women for all his issues. It's not their fault he can't laid.
-Short guys aren't always in popular demand, but his height isn't the issue. It's his attitude and his approach at life. I've seen armless men find love, so his height isn't the issue.
-He needs to stop online dating and he needs to change his attitude. There are tons of places that offer avenues for dating, such as speed dating. You just sign up online and then you go to the venue and meet women who are looking to date. If he changed his attitude, dressed better and was more cheery... I bet he would get dates.10
I mean his behaviour is disgusting but u really can't blame him lol. he's been molested, bullied mistreated because he was short and things like that. And put urself in his shoes. The people who talk shit to you are being rewarded by society ur gonna snap20
He's an insecure man who has had it shitty on dating side of life, as a result of this he has become an irrational prick who lashes out on everyone. Regardless of if he is being teased and made fun of online what he is doing is far worse and he should be locked up for harassment and hate speech.
Seriously fuck this piece of arrogant shit >:(10
The guy needs help.
He’s attacking people that did nothing to him.
Yeah some people said mean shit to him and they were wrong but he isn’t entitled to treat everyone the same way a few have treated him. He needs to go work on himself.40
I guarantee you those women on dating sites only told him to kill himself because he was being an asshole, not because he was short.
Also how pathetic he is to bring that up when arguing with people, Jesus.
That big guy thought he could teach him a lesson, telling him "dont talk to people that way" But short people never learn.
Disclaimer: Short women are cute and not insecure, but short men are absolutely unbearable, no one gives a fuck about your lack of height.15
As much of a prick this guy was, i'm very willing to turn my cheek to it. He didn't physically attack anyone, not that it would matter, the same people calling short don't think he can hurt anyone anyway.
But yea, i feel bad cuz it's just gonna be more a reason woman will use to pretend that rejecting men based on height isn't shallow. Like they have EVERY RIGHT to reject short men, but instead of admitting it's a shallow deal breaker, they blame the guy for height and rationalize it as "all short men are insecure". Like yea bitch, you really knew he was insecure when you're the one asking for height and ghosting when it isn't what you want.10
I understand where he is coming from but do not condone his aggression, insult, and twisted view of himself, women, and the world. I don't think behaving that helps him convey his argument or helps him win the hearts of women.10
The world is a cold mean place. I'm asked my height at least once a week. i don't even consider myself different than others till someone reminds me.
10 years ago i was full of rage kind of like this guy. He needs to come to terms with the fact that life isn't fair. Women are going to reject him based on his height, it's not fair... and guess what? It's not going to change no matter what he does.10
What a loser a desperate loser he is the kinda guys I talk about when I call men pathetic simps this is what I means guys like him are mad at women for no reason he shouldn’t even care what women think10
I feel bad for him. People complain about racism and sexism etc, but it does not even COME CLOSE to lookism (discrimination on someone’s looks, height included).10
He seems very unhinged. Unfortunately he won't get the help he needs unless he assaults someone or worse.10
Lmao he's unhinged.
He's gotta watch out.. He might get carried away by a large bird.10
Don't watch Phillip DeFranco - he's a sellout and a shill.3
Lmao. As a guy who's 5'4 I support his rant. Kick some ass bagel guy.10
lol short dick pipsqueak, also Shout out to Long Island,1
He' s the bagel boss!!!10

firstly, this is just how angry people on The East Coast, especially around his region of Long Island can be seen for the last 100 years.
shit just blows up or they try to vent it all the time so either way you get this volatile stream of "what in the fuck is this shit here?" whether they're saying it now or not. New York really, truly, cleaned up in many ways within many peoples current lifetimes.
I remember how normal and commonplace a fist fight would until maybe 11th grade; I was in jr. high during Columbine. Several classmates were at V. Tech when Cho went nuts and I honestly would not have been surprised to learn some of the nasty snarky fucks that I knew somehow poked Cho or created that extra straw for him to break. I didn't even realize how much a nerd-bully that I was until I could really step back and see how the smart dorks in my school really grouped up in an odd way to belittle people for being fucking retarded, vain and unfunny. They really roasted people for trying to be funny but then failing at it.
I sometimes wonder if we created Fail culture back in 6th grade because "Tim Boltz was such a failure" and "not funny, Tim Boltz" and honest to god, they were brutal to Boltzy. And somehow he survived it with a positive attitude. It was like watching an unfunny buddhist monk on fire for years.
This kid, legit, Byron, would stop a class dead quiet, turn around slowly and ask "is that the sound of Tim Boltz not being funny?" and then lead a crowd of ape-children is dogging him for the whole day with sighs and groans
So do you mean that people in general from area (NYC and near-by) just have a shrt temper?
Do you think it is like that ll the time?
America is very lowkey violent and we're very, very well behaved for how we used to be just 20 years ago. School fights and bullying is taboo today whereas kids would get into it every other day all over the place. I'm sure you must have gotten into a couple fights in the lockeroom or after school behind the treeline; a lot of my observations happened directly in daily life.
My buddy and I would play this "game" where we would jump on Chris Hannigan because he was incredibly tall and skinny and this was an obviously uncomfortable thing we were doing. Just trying to ride him like a mechanical bull until he threw me against the chain link fence and chased after the other dude. Pure idiotic chaos. Not even mean spirited, he's a cool guy it was just weird and funny and we were bored kids. I'm sure we'd have serious consequences and sexual harassment training now.
In fact, I actually remember that another kid DID HAVE TO DO THAT OMG. He grabbed this fat kid's tit in the lockeroom and he ratted him out to his MOTHER and they took poor Mike Lal to court. It was obscene.
