Another Tall Thursday

whitney cummings There has not been much new on the Famous Females of Height front lately. My last update was in mid-August.

It is not for a lack of trying, but every new lady whose height I checked out lately has come up short except for one: 5'11" Whitney Cummings, the comedian who stars on the new NBC television series Whitney.

Beware! Rant starts now!

I don't get it. People rave about Whitney and her television show.

Personally, I found the show to be unfunny.

Also, the show claims to be filmed in front of a live audience, but it sure sounds like canned laughs are used (maybe because the live audience finds the show unfunny, too).

End of rant!

Since there is only one addition this time around, I will reiterate the mission statement of the list:

I am over six feet tall, so when I femulate, I am a tall woman.

About the time I started femulating in my early teens, I became interested in tall women because they affirmed my existence as a tall woman, i.e., I was not the only tall woman out and about in society. Few were as tall as me, but maybe there were enough out there so that I could blend in more easily as just another tall woman.

In the past, tall women tried to blend in with their shorter sisters, so they dressed down (pun intended); instead of celebrating their height, they tried to hide it (to appear less intimidating to men).

Also, tall women did not have a lot to choose from clothes-wise. Few clothiers catered to tall women, so tall women had to make do with what was available, which typically did not celebrate tall women's height.

Today, tall women are out and proud and celebrate their height. They have more clothing to choose from now that more clothiers recognize their potential as customers. They no longer dress down to hide their height. They wear high heels and leg baring skirts and dresses. They don't care if they are intimidating. They've come a long way!

It is a great time to be a tall woman, or a tall femulator.


  1. Even though they're filmed in front of a live audience, sit-coms are usually "sweetened," as the industry term goes, with laughter.

    Infuriating, isn't it?

  2. Stana: I don't find WHITNEY that funny either. You are not alone.
    It is filmed in front of a live audience but I believe that many shows that are filmed before live audiences do sometimes used canned laughter in places. They use the live audience reaction to judge which jokes and lines work best and edit the show accordingly.
    I have been to several tapings and saw the results once the shows aired.

  3. AT 5'10" I find that I am less and less often obvious simply because of my height. Unless I wear (very) high heels I am not that much higher than most others. But I will not hide!

    For funny high Ladies go no further than Miranda

  4. Having been just a bit over average height myself, even at a young age, I liked reading through your list here, especially since I always liked taller women. To show you just about how old I am, the first name which comes to mind when I'm thinking about tall women, the name is Susan Anton. I could never understand the cultural dichotomy regarding the appreciation of taller men, but never so for women. This socially reinforced image, for women, is one of the leading causes of juvenile scoliosis.

  5. Oh My Goodness, Maja is such a cutie!!! I just love the dress. Great job.

  6. At 5'14", I know what you mean.... ;)

  7. I'm not familiar with Whitney Cummings the comedian so I can't say anything nice. End of my comment on her!

    As for tall women, I've met my share but I'm 5'10" in 3 inch heels and I steer well clear of platforms!

    The femulated Patio looks absolutely stunning!
