Anyone come across taller people who think they earned their height?

Every time I go to a family function or a reunion type of event, the subject of how short I am compared to others comes up and annoys me to no end. While I brush most of it off, there is always one idiot type who preaches to me about how I should've slept more, ate more, exercised more and that it's "my fault" that I'm short. All of those things I'm accused of not doing, I did, but I know very well that I am short because my family is short overall.

Anyone come across these ignorant asshats who think they "earned" their height?

Yes, I have.  Nonetheless, I still get respect because I go to a prestigious educational institution, something that I WORKED for.  You brought up an important concept/issue that people need to understand: what a person WORKED for vs. what a person is GIVEN.  Obviously, this has a lot to do with shorter men; yet, most people ignore it and go for the "trendiest."  This juxtaposition of EARNED vs. GIVEN is important, especially in this day in age of narcissism, greed, and licentiousness.

One of my friends in 6'5".  I don't see him a lot, but a few times a year.  I remember how proud he was one time, boasting that HE had achieved his goal of growing so tall.  I laughed out loud, and he was taken aback.  I pointed out that the same God that designed him to be tall designed me to be 13" shorter than he was, and that he actually had NOT achieved anything whatsoever.  I pointed out that each of is given a stature, stamped in stone, for life, outside of our control.  

He never tried that on me again, though he has mentioned the disparity in our height far more times than I would have liked over the years.  It's a factual mention, not insulting, but I just wonder why it has to be brought up at all.  I've concluded that, oddly, he feels somewhat uneasy around me because he sees me as highly intelligent and accomplished.  So, it's his problem, not mine.  I purposely placed him on one of my committees and we have enjoyed 18 years of friendship, despite this issue.  Side note-- about 2 years ago he stopped bringing up the height issue nearly every time he saw me.  Either he figured it out or a mutual friend told him to stop mentioning it.  I enjoy his presence much more now.
