WHAT PRICE BEAUTY? Women Sever Toes to Fit High Heels

1640 A.D.:

Virtually all women in China bind their feet to attract a suitor.

The painful practice was outlawed by the Qing Dynasty in 1902, but remained common until 1949, when the Communists assumed power and foot binding was finally ended. The practice has been decried by modern-day feminists as a classic example of societal oppression of women.
THIS IS BAD:


2012 A.D.:
Women in U.S. have toes amputated to fit into excruciating high heeled shoes.
THIS IS ALSO BAD.


It boggles the mind why a contemporary woman, free from the bondage of male supremacy and capable of self-determination, would subject herself to the pain and disfigurement of amputation—and for what? To combat diabetes? Cancer? Necrotizing fasciitis?

NOPE.

In the pursuit of fashion, an increasing number of American women are choosing to have their toes shortened or even amputated in order to fit into today’s sky-high stilettos.

Wikipedia offers a description of the painful foot binding that was once customary in China.

No, it’s more than that. It’s a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

What is odd is that women are still blaming men on this along with the portrayal of anorexic women in magazines for supposedly wanting this when no straight man wants this. The people that are coming up with all these destructive body practices/images (and the stuff in the media) are women and gay men. Straight men don't decide what's going on the cover of Cosmo or whatever (nor is it designed with the intention of attracting men or concerned with men's interests, its the exact opposite).

Don't you think this is something that just about everyone dislikes?
I don't see how you can pin it on any group specifically...
Be it women or gay men.
As i'm sure most of those people also think such stupid...

Well, as a confessed shoe fanatic, even I think that is going too far.

To me, there's no denying that the consumption of animal products causes suffering. There's also no good case to be made that it is necessary to consume animal products. So, I choose to do my best to minimize my contributions to the unnecessary suffering of other beings.

2418 It is contrary to human dignity to cause animals to suffer or die needlessly.
