Yeah but the average doesn't tell you about the actual distribution.
Even in Germany, with the highest average, there's plenty of dudes my height or even shorter. I thought it was a really varied field and didn't feel any general disdain, at least in my three-day stints, I have no long term experience though.
Thing is, if people are respectful, you have no issues. If they're M*&^F%*#s, they'll pick on anything, your haircut, your watch, what car you drive, etc.
