12/07/2003 Entry: "Foot binding - it's back!"

Foot Binding! It's Back! What Next? Designer Female Circumcision?

"With vanity always in fashion and shoes reaching iconic cultural status, women are having parts of their toes lopped off to fit into the latest Manolo Blahniks or Jimmy Choos. Cheerful how-to stories about these operations have appeared in women's magazines and major newspapers and on television news programs."
If Shoe Won't Fit, Fix the Foot? Popular Surgery Raises Concern, by Gardiner Harris, NY Times, December 7, 2003 (as seen on Sisyphus Shrugged)

Sisters, please, wear Kumfs, wear Clarks, wear Eccos, but don't let a doctor cut your feet up for fashion. Please. Tight shoes can ruin your day, but nerve damage can ruin your life.

I mean, the whole high-heel thing is just so we can't run very fast. If we ever need to run very fast. If you know what I mean. And I think you do.
