My height isn't a purely aesthetic feature you can comment on candidly, like a coat or a hat.It's a part of myself I've fought, manipulated, resented, and struggled to embrace for over half of my life.
I think the bigger issue is how comfortable random men are talking to me about my body.
As someone who mostly — though not exclusively — dates men, I feel like my height has helped me a lot with dating, because men unconsciously perceive me as "normal," and I don't activate their unconscious transphobia as badly.
I've been told more than a few times that "there's no way I can tell you're trans," and that helps men feel comfortable dating me.
Why would a middle aged man be creating this overbuilt nonsense? Also, it's a great way to learn about website authoring and management, it keeps my photography skills up, and I meet a lot of very unusual people, even for Hollywood.
Plus there are occasional glimpses of all the big men's girlfriends, coeds, wives and female bar acquaintances in their orbit.
