“You’re tall for a girl.”
We’ve all been there – suffering dumb comments from strangers or friends alike because of our height. Big Bird, Gigantor, BFG are just a few mean names that spring to mind.
Finally, tall girls are getting the appreciation they deserve in a form of a hashtag online.
#TallGirlsTwitter is a hashtag tweeters began using to support the acceptance of beauty at all heights.
In a society where petite women are prized, taller women can struggle to feel beautiful and can even sometimes be mocked when buying high heels or trying to find a partner. RUDE.
The hashtag, accompanied by witty captions, selfies and assorted photos, celebrates their beautiful lengthy legs and all the other amazing tall girl attributes.
YASSSSSS TALL SISTAS!

As a gal who stands at 5’11 and always been ashamed of her height, this is exactly what I could’ve done with during my teens.
PRAISE THE INTERNET.
