The Height Factor

Don't you feel that it's a tad unfair that there's a height requirement for beauty pageants and for models? Beauty pageants are about beauty, and beauty comes in all sizes and shapes. While it may be possible to control our weight and girth through diet and exercise, the height is more or less hereditary, unless one resorts to other means like HGH. Asians are generally more petite than Caucasians. I do not think that this means we are any less beautiful, just that we have a different type of look.

As for models, aren't they supposed to show how to carry a look? I think the "model-figure", which is usually tall and thin, is not the look everyone can achieve! While there are now Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Filipino and other Asian models who have the height and the build to become models and supermodels, the great majority of us are much shorter.

Maybe that's the Barbie doll mentality. That you have to meet Caucasian standards in order to be considered "universally" beautiful. Too bad.
