Well, I am a woman and I think it is more socially acceptable for a woman to be short, but I am very short!
I'm around 4' 10", which is small even for a woman. People do make assumptions about height, but the thing is is that those assumptions can be negotiated and challenged. They can be tested too. I think it would be a good idea to actually date and see how women respond to your height within the context of your other attributes before you make any concrete decision.
I like the idea of making peace with your body more so than forever altering it in order to meet some social standard. If you choose to alter your body, where does it really end?
I think the height thing is rather sad as there is actually an operation out there for children that will break their bones so that they will grow more in life. It must hurt like hell. I think I watched a doc on it, and if I remember correctly, it wasn't just parents with children who have some form... of... er dwarfism (is that the correct word now a days?). It was also parents making that decision because they were afraid their children were going to be below average in height.
But yah... In the end, it is really your body. Just do what you think it is right in the end. I take it you were thinking of using LOA?
