    Well people think that short people are weak, and that they wont fight back. Bullies think that the shorter ones are easy to get cause they don't have much physical strength, but what do they know that the shorter may not be able to hurt them physically but the can destroy them completely, i'm not very tall< i know how it feels

    Being short and skinny some larger people picked on me. Bullies often look for people that are smaller than them. They want to know that they have an advantage. A person I never saw before that was really big grabbed me while I was walking by because I was the smallest guy around. It is like when wolves look for a weak animal to attack.

    Bullies have stopped trying to bother me as soon as they realized I was not an easy target. While I can't do much about my height I have increased my strength by exercising. I don't like feeling weak. I like to feel strong even though I am short.

    Another reason bullies go after short people is because a lot of short people lack confidence. They are intimidated by taller people.

    I think the others gave very good answers and I agree with them. Some bullies found out the hard way short people shouldn't always be picked on when my little brother was on the receiving end of the bullying. He may have been short, but he'd send them away crying with some bumps and bruises.

    I reckon it's an evolutionary thing as short people way back in the stone age would have been worse at surviving.Short=inferior=can be brushed away.
