    In all honesty @op if you're shorter than 5'9" and you aren't either a millionaire, a marksman, or a martial arts expert, you're basically just a liability to your family. A permanent child in constant need of protection from big bad adults. Don't talk to strangers and if you're playing in the front yard, make sure you're in a spot that your mom can see you clearly in case someone tries to kidnap you, as even a high schooler on a scooter could kidnap you due to you manlet physique

    Dude you’re f***ing high school, chances are if your family is in danger it’s from someone that’s holding some form of a weapon (ie a gun).

    In that circumstance, don’t think it matters all too much whether you’re a few inches taller or not.

    Lots of times when I hear Tall=Protection, it's usually when some women say they prefer dating tall men because tall men make them feel protected. But for me, that idea has affected me in other areas of my life.

    I'm currently in high school and I'm 5'5, I live with my mom, dad, and sister. My dad is 6'5 and my mom is 5'0.
    Throughout middle school and high school, bullies would target short kids for their height including me. They assumed I was cowardly and won't be able to protect myself or protect my other short friends. They never picked on us short kids around our tall friends because they think our tall friends would protect us. They assume we won't defend ourselves and whenever I stood up for myself or my other short friends the bullies would be so surprised but then say something along the lines of "What are you gonna do? You ain't ganna do sh*t along" and then specifically insult my size.

    But this idea that Tall=Protection hurts me more when it comes from my own family.

    When it comes to my sister, she told me she doesn't feel safe around me because she doesn't think I would be able to protect her and she said wishes she had a taller brother. My sister even told me that she was jealous of her friends who had tall brothers.

    My Mom and Dad have said to me they don't think I would be able to protect my sister just because I'm short. One time for Halloween my sister wanted to go tick-o-treating around the neighborhood with her friends, and my parents wanted at least one guy to go with them just to be safe, and when I said I'll go my parents told me that it would be better if my cousin (he's 6ft and my age) goes with them instead because he's bigger and stronger and can keep them safer. And my parents call my cousin stronger even though we are roughly the same strength-based on us wrestling, arm wrestling, working out together, and there are times when I'm stronger than him. When I tried to confront my parents my mom told me that she doesn't think I would be able to protect my sister because of my size.

    Another time my mom had to go to the city and my dad didn't want my mom to go alone because it was getting dark but my dad wasn't able to accompany my mom because he had to go somewhere also, so when I offered to go with my mom, my dad sent my 6ft cousin to accompany my mom instead of me because he said my mom would be safer with my cousin.

    Also one time my parents said if I ever get married or have kids in the future, I'm going to have a hard time protecting them being my size, and that it would have been easier if I was as tall as my dad.

    This honestly breaks my heart. I'm assumed to be weak and to not be able to protect the things I care about by society, by women, but when it comes from my sister and my parents, this is what hurts me the most. And my mother is 5'0, so she's short also, so I would think out of all people she would understand me the most and what it's like to be short and underestimated, but she doesn't understand me and it makes me so sad. She even blames my height on me not sleeping enough, or eating enough, or I must have done d**** to stunt my growth. It hurts to know they have no faith in me, and they make me feel like a failure.

    Can you guys give me advice on how to deal with this and my family?

    Maybe your family is referring to the fact that people will try you more because you’re shorter ? They’re not necessarily talking about strength more about perceived threat

    They all suck anyway sorry you have to deal with that, must be heavy. I wouldn’t worry though
