Woman Who's Seven Inches Taller Than Her Husband Gets Approached By Strangers
| Last updated
A woman who's seven inches taller than her husband gets approached by strangers who find it 'very alarming and confusing'.
Mia Wilson who lives in Brooklyn, New York, says a stranger once walked up to the couple in the street to find out how they have sex.
A random woman also waited for the pair to finish kissing in a bar to ask if they were related.
Not to mention, Mia's friend felt so strongly about the situation, that she insisted that the couple should break up a month before their wedding.
Writing about it in Jezebel, Mia explained: "My husband is 5’5’’ and I am 6’0’’ tall – a seven-inch height difference that wouldn’t be remarkable at all if our genders were reversed, but is apparently very alarming and confusing to some people."
Shortly after the happy couple announced their wedding in a newspaper, staff were concerned with the photo sent along with the announcement.
She wrote: "I’m so sorry, but the way you’re positioned in the photo, your eyes are higher than your fiancé’s, and it makes it look like you might be a couple of inches taller than him.
"Do you have any other photos?
"I reassured him that I was in fact taller than he, but by seven inches, not two, and that I had a whole lot of photos I could send over that illustrated this if he wanted.
"I was met with complete silence on the line.
"It was probably about ten seconds of silence, which felt like roughly three years."
The woman from Brooklyn also referred to Tom Holland and Zendaya's height difference.
She went on to say: "When I see headlines about Zendaya and Tom Holland having to explain their height difference, over and over – she is a mere two inches taller than him – I feel for them.
"They are up against another barrage of criticism that my husband and I do not have to experience in our daily lives, being two very famous people in an interracial relationship."
She added: "But still – Tom Holland finds himself in interviews having to defend being a 'short king' cast against a slightly taller woman with whom he fell in love.
"Why is this notable at all?"
Mia concluded: "The truth is, I don’t see my husband’s height, and he doesn’t see mine.
"He is a brilliant, caring, deeply good, deeply funny person.
"I don’t need to crane my head upward to kiss him in order to validate my gender identity, nor do I need to be perceived as smaller than the person I showed up to an event with to access whatever desired amount of femininity I want to access that day."
