New York Times Column Says Mating With Short People Helps The Environment

DW: I'm golden! My wife is 2.13 feet tall!

A guest column in the "New York Times" claims that mating with short people is better for the environment. Author Mara Altman wrote the piece and said that Thomas Samaras “calculated that if we kept our proportions the same but were just 10 percent shorter in America…we would save 87 million tons of food per year.

She took it a step further, much to the amusement of people on Twitter, saying, “When you mate with shorter people, you’re potentially saving the planet by shrinking the needs of subsequent generations.” She recommends that people lower the height minimum for partners on their dating profiles as “a step toward a greener planet.”
