It’s a presumption that’s become second-nature as our culture’s grown more swipe-friendly, and can make us internalize and wonder if changing what we like or how we live would just make things less complicated.It helps foster connection by shared interests, without the sort of outdated labels and standards that often lead to feelings of rejection and isolation.recognizes the bias towards height within the gay dating scene.As it is, I almost gag whenever the thought of online dating pops into my head, and the constant cross-examination about my stature never helps. For something that seems so minuscule to those not in the know, short-shaming still has the power to induce a towering amount of anxiety.This literal numbers game, and the psychological ripples it’s caused for a score of gay men under 5’10”, is a curse. It’s easy to point to the apps themselves as the root of the problem.
