Being Tall

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 clothing-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. FYI, Abbie Eaton, British race driver and the lap driver on seasons 2 & 3 of Amazon's The Grand Tour is 5'10". Also, she is officially out as a lesbian too. :)

  2. I worked on Civil Wars with Mariel Hemingway.Tall, beautiful, fierce, funny and warm human being with a bell-like voice that seems too small for her.

  3. Might I add Astrid Kumbernuss, athlete (shot put). I briefly met her at the Atlanta Olympics and was in love

  4. There was a reality show "My Giant Life" and Alicia Jay, 6'6" had a lot of presence. I didn't see the other gals much.

  5. I love this because I have always felt insecure about being TOO SHORT. We are all beautiful
