Don’t Give the ‘M-word’ an Inch: Kathy’s new Taki’s column

Whereas I consider the [Little People of America] discriminatory against me, because I’m apparently one inch too tall to join their group – and membership has its privileges, I see. Why won’t they give an inch? This is heightism straight up (although not too far up…)

Yes, “heightism.”

In December, Russia banned “those under 4 feet 11 inches from driving most trucks and commercial passenger vehicles, purportedly as a way to decrease car accidents.”

It’s news to me and millions of dash-cam fans that Russia has the slightest interest in reducing the number of motor vehicle collisions. I figured all those monetized YouTube videos were now their leading source of GDP.
