It's not nice to make fun of people's height.

I know, sum1. I'm just kidding, and I'm making fun of them more because they're Jonas Brothers. And the title of the article is what mentioned Joe's height. I didn't write that Sophie “towered" over him.

There's nothng funny about it, Sarah. It's only old sexist attitudes that hold that a guy has to be taller than his girlfriend. Reasonably speaking, there's nothing more wrong with the woman beng taller than with the man beng taller.

Its true and it is sadly sexist but I fall within where I prefer to date men taller than me

I think what Sophie did was brave and unconventional, in the face of the prejudice about that kind of thing. Even if the Jonas Brothers are nothing to write home about. It increases my respect for her.

Btw, shouldn't we be adding Sophie into the thread title?

Yes unless we want to give her own thread - I know with Tye we didn't but do you think Sophie deserves her own

I wasn't aware that there was a prejudice against dating someone shorter than you. Remember Cher and Sonny Bono? And my mocking of the Jonas Brothers has more to do with their lousy track record when it comes to their dating history and how it affects the women they're with, like what happened to Demi Lovato. That was sad.

Yeah, we should think about giving the Cyclops and Jean Grey threads to Tye and Sophie now. I don't think that James or Famke are coming back, and Logan and Apocalypse seem to be signaling an end to the old movie continuity.

Just not sure if we should give them individual threads yet maybe wait until another movie that includes Tye/Sophie as their respected characters

Good idea. And that's why I'm anxious for another X-Men movie. I wanna find out what happens with them given where Apocalypse left things.

Yea I feel once another movie is out than it will be easier to judge on how we wanna do things

Cause for main characters (Erik/Charles) they've got 2 threads, younger and older

There is a major prejudice against women dating men shorter than them. And it's particularly strong in France, where Sophie went on that date.

France? Really? I thought they did pretty much anything there. And I grew up in the 80's, so I really don't remember people making too much of a deal about it. Tom Cruise was married to women taller than him, remember?

And Mimi Rogers, in case you didn't know.

Sophie didn't seem so tall next to Tye. But then Cyclops is supposed to be taller.
