Disliking a fighter for height is equivalent to hating a fighter for race.

    If you are the kind of person who dislikes a fighter like Demetrious Johnson because of their size you should understand that this is no different than you saying you dislike them because they are black or hispanic.

    In both situation you have a person who cannot control a factor about themselves that you use to discriminate their character, except one is taken seriously and one isn't.

    For example, if a girl was to go on a date with a guy and he was black and she said "I don't date black guys",

    There would be an outrage.

    But if she said "short guys" it would be acceptable.

    Both are discriminating so don't pretend that you are progressive with race issues if this bothers you.

    Making jokes about Demetrious Johnson based on his height should be treated just like race jokes, with appropriate punishments.

    I don't remember any stories of hordes of chickenshit cunts lynching short guys or dragging them behind cars, but I could be mistaken. I don't have time to read every newspaper.

    I tend to like fighters who are short, light or unathletic for their divisions. They are heroes overcoming greater physical attributes with skill and heart.

    So can I discriminate against all asian fighters, or can I say "all white fighters suck"?
    As long as they aren't tortured it should be okay.

    Sexual/dating/aesthetic preferences don't translate to racism to anybody that isn't a retard, imo.

    Having a preference doesn't make you racist. You got some growing up to do, bro.

    So what? I am openly racist (as well as openly sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, and transphobic), so it makes no difference to me.

    Okay, you go and tell a black girl "Sorry I won't date you because you're black"

    Or post on Facebook "Can black girls stop messaging me?"

    See how that goes friend.

    No, I'd just tell her that I'm not attracted to her; like a person with a functional brain.

    Pointing to how one group would react is a lazy attempt to make an argument.

    But if you had to give a specific reason, it would be culturally acceptable for someone to say "Too short" but not culturally acceptable to say "He's black".

    This is a standard that exists in MMA as well and they are both clearly forms of prejudice

    Manlets would be far more useful to society if they were in labor camps instead of treated like a normal person.

    False, the reality is that most large men are utilized for their muscles to do construction work and work as movers. If anyone would be in labor camps it would be them.

    This guy must be a troll... If Your for real, go get some of those lift shoes to give you a couple of extra inches (lots of short actors wear em). If that still doesn't help then your a midget not a short guy. Quit whining, this PC crap died in 2017.
