More was said about this in the Tall Girls Journal on p. 14.
The ones I was called were: Slim, Minute, Skyscraper, Hightower, Jolly Green Giant, and I am sure I am forgetting some.
What were yours?
Any time I get a name now I just giggle and say "well at least I am not sitting on a roadside curb swinging my legs, little bit"...lol...
I have learned, it is easier to just go with it then against it.
Do you believe the hype or is there more to it then height?
I wonder if people with false teeth eat more then people without them. ..lol...
Just being silly BUT what do you think, tall girls? Do you think this is true? Is it just the height that is fattening our pockets?
It was on page 13 of the TGJ.
Are, we tall women being to hard on those guys that like to date and follow the happenings of tall women?
Just because they come off creepy does that really mean they are creepy?
What is your take?
Well the word has gotten out, the MODELS we see on tv aren't really that tall.
Also, people have started to notice that the models look NOTHING like the day to day people we see or associate with.
Hmmmmmm It will be interesting to see how everything unfolds on this topic.
With the modeling industry pick up some taller tall girl (i.e. over 6 foot)? I think the demand is beginning to call for it.
We shall see.
Meanwhile those plus size women are doing it BIG!!! It seems as if they are loving their new spot in the light.....I encourage them to continue aiming high. I like seeing variety when I watch tv.
What are your thoughts on this topic?
My eyes were crossing up when I tried it.
Was it at least close to your current height or did you get frustrated and put it down?....lol
Let me know.
We have already started to recruit volunteers for the Feb 2011 issue. Based on the high response this first time around we are anticipating lots of participants the second time around. Remember, the issues come out every 3 months so there is a lot we can collect in 3 months. For more info go to the events sections of the Tall Girls Journal on facebook. There you will find ways of thinking about what stories you can share with us about being a tall girl. Tall girl admirers are welcomed as well!!

Women issues are associated with being a tall girl. That is the one big thing we tall girls AND short girls have in common - WOMEN's HEALTH.

First and foremost, I don't live my life worrying about what others think of me but at the same time I do acknowledge shifts in energy or a resistance to change.
To all those that are taking actions for the tall community (photography, blogging, selling, etc.), I, along with other young tall girls, are appreciative of your efforts!
Information sharing should NOT be a competition. It is a time to value the knowledge base available.
I remember a time when there was a huge void in reference to TALL GIRLS. In other words, no one catered to the tall girl community. Long legs, arms, fingers, feet, etc. were ignored and there was NOTHING available for us tall girls.
Now I am so pleased to see all of the resources!!
To those who are in a competitive mode in reference to followers, listeners, subscribers, etc., you can count me out.
I love what I am doing and really enjoy the drop jaw responses from the young tall girls who find out they are NOT alone in having the "Gift of Height"
Enjoy Your Holiday!!!
PS. Doesn't that turkey look YUMMYYYYYYYYYYY!!???

In this clip, it seems as if things were OK from the beginning and then the men begin to taunt her. Towards the end it seems as if she was becoming uncomfortable and wanting to shy away.
This is the kind of attention that makes being tall so uneasy for some women. What are your thoughts?
I know the clip is short but you can kind of get a sense of how things are unfolding.
