In a viral video last week, a man in a bagel shop lashes out at female employees and customers after feeling slighted for his short stature. The man then begins a misogynistic rant about what he feels is mistreatment and disrespect from women because of his size.\nAnother customer eventually tackles the man to the floor.\nThough the complete circumstances of the incident are unclear, the video has catalyzed a widespread conversation about online dating culture, misogyny, and the potential or assumed disadvantages of shorter-than-average men.\nYou can watch the video of the man in the bagel shop in the tweet below:\nso in bagel boss this morning, the misogynistic douchebag seen in the video was degrading almost all of the female staff as well as other patrons. fuck this guy. pic.twitter.com/LZh1Uk4UXZ— olivia shea 🏳️🌈 (@oliviabradley88) July 10, 2019\nMTL Blog correspondent Olivia Lyle took to the streets to get Montreal women's opinions on this topic and to ask if they, themselves, are open to dating or hooking up with a shorter guy.\nWatch that video below:\nInterestingly, while as many women say that height matters in relationship/romantic considerations as those who say it does not, more women in this small sample say that they would not date a shorter man than those who say they would.\nAll women interviewed said that other factors would inform their decision whether or not to hook up with a shorter man.\nIt is important to note for the purposes of this video, we only explored height as it relates to heterosexual relationships.\nMen were more reluctant to offer their own anecdotes or opinions, says Lyle. Though a few men of smaller-than-average height say that their stature has not affected their dating lives.\nThere are few recent, reputable surveys about height preferences in heterosexual relationships.\nID 146851581 © Cagkan Sayin | Dreamstime.com\nIn 2013 a study published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences found at the very least "that women are not only more selective, but also more consistent, than men, in their partner height preferences."\n"Women prefer, on average, a larger height difference between themselves and their partner (i.e. males being much taller than themselves) than men do," according to the article abstract.\nREAD ALSO: Study Shows 16% Of Schools In Montreal Have Contaminated Tap Water\nPerhaps more at issue in this latest viral video of the man in the bagel shop is the misogynistic perception that women owe attention to men of any height or build.\nStay tuned for more news from this discussion.
