Heightism

Why is it that when short people describe themselves, usually some kind of talent they have, then tend to follow that positive with a "but"...

I don't personally do this, but many do.

"I'm short BUT I am an amazing piano player"

"I'm short, BUT I can dunk and am crazy on the basketball court"

"I'm short, BUT I do fine with women"

This implies that short is a negative, but moreso, that the person in question has internalized the idea that short = inferior.

I get it when someone refers to me as "the short guy who dresses fresh", however in that case, they are describing me the way the remember me because my height stands out.

In that case, it's not negative. You don't need to "apologize" for being short nor do you need to perpetuate the idea that short = inferior.
