Which is worse to be in society: a short man or a fat & ugly woman?
Is it worse to be a short man, or an overweight and masculine unattractive woman, in regards to how most people in society who aren’t friends or family will treat you. There are objective standards here to use.
Being generous and rounding down for this example, a short man is considered anything under 6’0” or 183 cm. Six-feet even would be mediocre, normal, or healthy, only being at the 75th percentile (a “C” grade). The 90th percentile in height for men (an “A”) is at 6’1” and a half or 186 cm, thus what is considered the beginning of “tall” height for adult men, in my country. (Remember, this is not the same thing as percentage! More is better.)
And an overweight woman is 170 pounds at 5’4” tall, the average female height, assuming no muscle mass is counted. This would be a Body Mass Index of 30, which is where Obese begins at. Add five pounds per one inch. (Example: A 5’9” woman at 195 with no muscle would be considered obese.) A smaller BMI is better.
Also, plus-sized models and overweight-but-beautiful women are excluded in this comparison. The obese woman must also be considered “ugly,” in this case, by having masculine traits as a female-born woman. So any man less than the 75th percentile in height is considered not-tall/short, and any woman with a BMI of 30 or more is considered fat by these objective standards.
Is society crueler to men who are short, or to overweight women who are also unattractive due to masculine features?
Who has it worse and why do you think so? What are some reasons you think it may be? Please try to stay on-topic.
