Women being fussy about short men

As I've said before, I'm convinced that at least part of the so-called 'wage gap' between men and women is more to do with height than sex: tall people have an edge in getting paid more and men are more likely than women to be tall. Its one of those totally irrational things that tall people are probably unconsciously viewed as more intelligent and capable (I believe there is research to back this up).

However, whilst women will actively complain about the wage gap, they will simultaneously support discriminating against short men!
