High heels. In my opinion, they are just a modern day form of foot-binding. We are expected to wear them because they make our calves look good, make us taller, which makes us appear thinner. Pain for the sake of looking good, wearing shoes that actually injure our feet is very reminiscent of foot binding. Yes, it is not as extreme, I realize that. I realize women aren't breaking the feet of their daughters and forcing them to wear high heels. Yet, this pain is undergone for the pleasurable experience of men, isn't it? And so was foot binding--Chinese men loved the tiny feet, the way hobbled feet made the woman's hips sway. It's still feet-pain for the sake of appearing desirable.
