At what height do you consider a grown man to be "short"? Enough so that you notice it?

5'4"?
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 10:41:19 AM EST
<6'0

Because 6'0 is the start of tall.

5'8", if their 5'4" you can ask them "what do you want to be when you grow up? a midget?"
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 10:44:41 AM EST
I'm 6'3.
When i'm outside of the state of Minnesota (where it seems like everyone stands over 6'), i'm usually one of the tallest guys in the room, so everyone is "short" to me.

Yeah, but you just might get a head-butt right in the balls

Link Posted: 4/15/2006 10:50:05 AM EST

One of the guys at the plant is 5`4", we give him hell all the time, but he can take it and gives us hell right back....

We got him good one Saturday. Someone took a wood crate and wrote his name on it, and beside his name, wrote, PEE PEE STAND, and placed it under a urinal.....


Oh now that was funny.......
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 10:51:26 AM EST
I'd say 5'8"
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 10:52:39 AM EST
I worked with two guys,one had to be close to 7 feet,his partner was just under 5 feet. Funny looking pair.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 10:53:11 AM EST
5'8"? No way.

Like I said, when do you NOTICE IT.

Same here. I'm 5'6". My work partner is 6'9"-6'10".

I'm 6'4" and I would say that I start to notice it with men at anything under 5'10". 5'8" is definetly the start of "short" to me.

With women probably at 5'5" and under, but who cares, the smaller they are the easier they are to spin!
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:00:58 AM EST
One inch shorter than me.


I'm 5'5". I should have been 5'6'', but I spent a year in bed with a bad haircut.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:01:42 AM EST
The bell-curve for American males peaks at a fraction short of 5'10"

I say "short" is 5'7" and under
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:04:26 AM EST
I'm 5-11 and consider myself not too tall, not too short, just right.

To me, guys 5-8 and below are short
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:04:46 AM EST
It would be neat to see what the averages are. I am 5'9-5'10. I deal with a lot of people at 6' or so.

There is a State Trooper who must be pushing 5' 3" (trying to give him credit too) or so. He looks like he is all of 19 years old too. I think I will have to try the step thing to get him into his cruiser. He finds a lot of DUIs though and has not had much of a problem yet.

Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:05:03 AM EST
I think the average height of grown males is 178cm here. So, I'd guess everyone below that is categorically short. (I'm 180cm myself, so I'm just a hair above the average.)
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:05:03 AM EST
pffft. anything less than 6 feet is borderline midget.

6'1" here.Anything below 5'8" I would consider a runt.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:12:35 AM EST
I notice most of the Hispanics I see around here mowing lawns, duing construction, etc. seem to be in the 5-4 to 5-6 height range, but stocky. Is that a normal build for an average Mexican male?
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:12:37 AM EST
If you listen to some women it's when they can't reach to toilet seat, or when they get into bed. I am over 6' so it doesn't apply to me.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:13:06 AM EST
Under 5'8. I'm 6'2 though, and for some reason, I wanted to be just a little taller.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:15:51 AM EST
Anything under 6"3". If I can see your bald spot.......you're short!
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:16:47 AM EST
Well, I'm 5'8" and never considered myself to be "short".
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:19:12 AM EST
5'6". I'm 5'4", so anything shorter than 5'6" is just awkward.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 11:22:38 AM EST
<5'9
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 12:23:49 PM EST
I would think at about 5'8", as well.

And also...IBTBAWS (in before thread becomes about wang size)
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 12:26:22 PM EST
Anything under 5' 8"
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 12:26:57 PM EST
Im about 7 inches, and curve slightly to the left.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 12:27:34 PM EST
I'm 5'12", so anything less than that is short.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 12:27:36 PM EST
On the interweb I'm 6'5" so anything under that is short.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 12:30:21 PM EST
I'm 6'4" (seriously, not an interweb exaggeration), so 5'11.9bar" is short.

CHP JBT's used to have to be 5'9" but that "racist" requirement was removed.

From an "activist" website:

"After all, the artificial obstacles that had been put in place greatly reduced the number of minorities that could join the ranks. A good example, and one which the CHP could not defend, was the minimum height requirement of 5’9" inches. This bogus requirement certainly limited the number of Latino and Asians that could meet that height, (we, with the assistance of Asian and Women organizations eventually changed that requirement when they testified before the State Personnel Board and won)."
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 12:41:38 PM EST
Im 5'6, I'd consider anyone under 5'10 to be short. 19 so hoping I can get another 3 or 4 inches in before I quit growing (unlikely) what age to males grow untill?

As for being stocky I am a little bit, at 5'6 my weight is 165. I think im a bit overweight and trying to loose round 10 pounds but im comfterble with it cause im not too the point where I cant handle the extra fat. I can run a few miles or climb a roap using just my arms without any problems.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 12:49:52 PM EST
<5'8", 5'11" is perfect. Tall enough to be a threat and short enough not to be noticed.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 12:51:30 PM EST
6 foot 1 inch here.

I consider a guy short if he is 5'8 and below

Girls are short if they are 5'2 and below
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 12:56:52 PM EST
Below 5' 9" is short to me (im 5'6") below 5' 5" is really short and you start getting the napoleon complex it seems

I'm just over 6' 1" and I quit growing at 15. I think you are going to be one of the short guys.
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 1:21:11 PM EST
5'9 isn't short
5'8 is

Just my PO

I'm 6', dad was 5'8, younger brother 6', older brother 5'7

I'm 5'6", but my Napoleon complex makes me feel like I'm a giant.

Your short if you have a 4 1/2 inch penis.

That is all. Which probably fits most of you guys.

I am 5'10". I usually don't really notice unless someone is less than 5'4".

I am one of the tallest people at work though. I work with a lot of Indians.

I get called short by my >6' tall friends. I tell them to kiss my ass, and life goes on.
