That comment has stuck with me since the post. I hope that is a complement and she is okay with that description. In more recent times I learned there's now "glamazon" but most women I know who are tall and short are very sensitive to labels like that, and various sorts of fit issues whether that's clothing or the attitudes people have.I hand Bindi to his girlfriend, Molly, a 6 foot Amazon if ever there was one.
The sticking with me is now 33 years with a woman who is 5' 10", athletic, and my lifelong relationship with a cousin who's 6' tall and probably stands out more than my blond wife via her red hair. I believe they represent most who don't care for the attention and clothing issues where there's not much that can be done about it. They are quick to mistake things said as compliments.
Things are certainly better now whether that's acceptance or shopping for clothing.
