You ever notice how people in positions of leadership tend to be taller than average height? Not always but more often than not this seems to be the case. In this society most positions of power are still held by males, but as more and more women break into leadership positions I wonder if the same tendency will hold true?
Being tall and being male is generally seen as an advantage, but on the flip side of the coin it would seem that being tall and being female can be viewed as being somewhat of a misfortune. My brother is 6'4" and his wife is 6'3" - she once said she was 'lucky' to have found a guy who likes tall women; dates were not easy to come by - she thought most guys were intimidated by taller women.
