|MadSci Network: Evolution|
This depends on what angle you take. From a human aesthetic perspective, some people like short people and some people don't. Their reasons could be anything. It's like wondering why some poeple like Marmite and some people detest it. It just comes down to aesthetic appeal. From an evolutionary perspective, being short is clearly not considered a negative characteristic. If it were, there would be no short people. Hope this helps. Steve
