- Insecure behaviour, especially when others joke about small penises
- A fast car with a long bonnet

2.
A demeaning phrases to explain the
everyday behaviour or reactions of a
shorter man. This circular definition
is very much like the black man's
supposed "chip on the shoulder," or a
female's "penis envy".

It is a device to excuse discrimination
by blaming the recipient of that
discrimination.
Redneck 1: "Hey, that guy got angry when I ridiculed him for being short."

Redneck 2: "He did? I guess that must be short man's syndrome."

4.
A term applied to a short man whenever he is assertive or commanding. If the exact same attitude was taken by a taller man, no one would think twice.
Tall guy steps out of a new Camaro: "Hey, check out that guy with the Camaro!, that's a sweet ride, I wonder how much he makes."

Short guy steps out of a new Camaro: "Dude, look at that little man with the Camaro, Talk about compensation!"

Tall employer assigns difficult task: "My boss gives me hard jobs, but whatever, everyone has to work."

Short employer assigns difficult task: "Damn, that prick loves to lord his authority over me! He has major Short Man's Syndrome!"

5.
A term used to dehumanize short men. On the basis of this prejudiced term, a short man isn't allowed to do anything assertive, confident, or generally masculine without being accused of overcompensating or having short man's syndrome.

Whereas if a taller man exhibited the same exact behavior, nobody would bat an eyelash.
I rudely shoved that short guy at the bar out of my way, and he got all angry about it. Talk about short man's syndrome!

A story made up by tall guys with small dicks who have nothing else going for them than their height. The same insecure guys will come up with stories to put down men of all shapes, sizes, looks, professions, talents, and intelligence levels in an attempt to make themselves look better, and still wonder why we women won't go for them.
Jason: "How did that short man end up with that girl!! I have to bring it to her attention that her guy has short man's syndrome! Also check out that fat guy with the beautiful woman; he must have fat guy's syndrome. How about that smart guy? What a nerd! And that overly tall dude?! What a sasquatch! Don't even get me started on redhead men!"

Jennifer: "Get a life! And grow some balls so you don't need to put others down to feel better about yourself"
