A heightcel is someone whose placement on the incel spectrum can at least partially be attributed to being short. The most notable heightcel in history is probably Beethoven.

Studies and experiments[edit]

A study from Rice University, Texas, found that:

data from the Yahoo! personal dating advertisements of 455 males (average height of 5 feet 8 inches and average age of 36 years) and 470 females (average height of 5 feet 4 inches and average age of 35 years) from throughout the U.S., found that 13.5 percent of the men wanted to date only women shorter than they are. In contrast, nearly half of the women – 48.9 percent – wanted to date only men taller than they are ... while 55 percent of female respondents wanted to date only men taller than they are.[1]

A social experiment on OKcupid found that men lying about their height by increasing it by 3 inches received 13 percent more replies as well as lenghtier replies.[2] Short-shaming sometimes overlaps with incelphobia. Discrimination against short men isn't limited to the dating scene. Data shows that for each inch of lower height, a man earns 789 less dollars a year. In other words, its not your work ethic or competence that earns you money; rather it's your looks.[3]

Why women like tall men[edit]

For many women, dating is about status and seem to have agreed that tallness means prestige. Women pick men who will inspire the envy of other women and getting a tall man seems like a victory in women's competition with other women, although this unspoken bragging right is not really openly discussed in society, since they want to downplay the blackpill.

Although heightceldom is a major trope in the incelosphere there are some examples incel people that override this mantra, such as the first example on the nymphocel page which features a 6'3 incel.

Bicel Heightcels[edit]

Although Straight incels typically are screwed, if a male bicel is a cutecel, they might be able to pull off being an attractive twink towards other bicels or gays.
