I'm 5'2, so I wear heels a lot when dressing up because it makes me look better in my clothes, but I'm not so vain as to mutilate myself in order to wear a smaller shoe size. The shiat women do to themselves for no good reason.......baffles the imagination. You know, if the media/fashion industry/Hollywood hadn't convinced women that they need to be a size 0, cut off toes to wear expensive shoes, get size GGG breasts and enough Botox that they'll never blink again, maybe just maybe we'd see more young girls saying their #1 aspiration was to be President rather than a model or an actress.

I know, I know....I sound fat. No, just fed up with women who torture themselves for no reason other than to be trendy.

Wizzin: Women have feet?


Some do. To find the feet you must first locate the mammary glands. Approximately 12 - 24 inches from there you'll find the labia, lip-like skin extensions of the vagina. Try not to be disgusted by the labia, at least keep your lunch down for a little longer. If you look an additional 24 - 36 inches further down the body from the labia, you'll likely find between 1 and 3 feet -- the terminal ends of the legs. Keep in mind that in some women, the feet are non-existent or VERY hard to find.
 
2012-11-21 12:24:34 AM
Of course, once you have toes removed for "cosmetic purposes," your feet will only look good in those shoes for which you have had yourself mutilated. And not sandals, ever again.

A few toes on her left foot were longer than the others, making that foot an entire size larger than her right foot. The solution: A surgical procedure cutting off about a centimeter of her second toe.

I wonder if they could level out my balls.
 
2012-11-21 12:26:37 AM
I've been asking for this for years, and everyone seems to think I'm weird.

Little toes are good for nothing but pain. I'd prefer locating the gene that causes them so that I could sort through my sex cells and create four-toed children, but what the hey. Surgery works. Is cheap.

I daresay many people with five toes shouldn't wear sandals either. Those of us with teensy little toes that get underneath the other toes, probably wouldn't even in notice that I was 4-toed in my sandals. And I wouldn't really care if you did.

Four toes. The new way to be.

I wear a size 11 to 12 in women's shoes and have since high school. I can't walk into most shoe stores and expect to find shoes that fit, which is why I shop at Payless Shoes so often.

Narrow shoes, extra pointy toes, overly high heels: these are torture devices foisted on the average woman as "fashion".

But this was not an ordinary pair of black and white pumps; both were left feet, one had a right angle turn with separate compartments that pointed the toes in impossible directions. The other shoe was six inches long and was curved inward like a rocking chair with a vise and razor blades to hold the foot in place.

Sounds like a lot of you guys are completely uninformed about high heel fetishists. I'm a heterosexual guy, and I think high heels are sexy. But I don't think women should wear them for foot-damaging extended periods of time, like all day at work or all night partying. Maybe just in the bedroom, with very little walking.

Yes, heels are nice, but I prefer my women to not have mangled feet.

stu1-1: LovingTeacher: Carlo disappeared into the back room for a moment, and then reappeared carrying an ordinary shoebox. He took off the lid and removed a hideous pair of black and white pumps. But this was not an ordinary pair of black and white pumps; both were left feet, one had a right angle turn with separate compartments that pointed the toes in impossible directions. The other shoe was six inches long and was curved inward like a rocking chair with a vise and razor blades to hold the foot in place.

Carlo spoke hesitantly, ". . . Now you see . . . they' re not fit for humans . . ." "Put them on me."
"But... "Put them on me!"
Carlo knew all arguments were useless. He knelt down before her and forced the feet into the shoes.
The screams were incredible.
Anna crawled over to the mirror and held her bloody feet up where she could see.
"I like them."
She paid Carlo and crawled out of the store into the street.
Later that day, Carlo was overheard saying to a new customer, "Well, that's it. That's every pair of shoes in the place. Unless, of course, you'd like to try the cruel shoes."

This! after my ankle, the thing is a square. Most shoes come in EE, Well fine, running shoes, hiking boots, steel toed work boots, cleats nothing fits right. Cowboy boots I can live with as they spread enough before they fall apart, hopefully before hurting or causing bone damage! Oops to late! Going larger creates new problems.

The reason women wear heels is they make their ass look GREAT! All for this, Just don't wear them all the time girls. farks with everything. If your hips hurts because you're in heels all the time, you're no good to any man.

I know a woman with deformed toes & when she 1st showed me it was shocking to put it nicely. However, she was born that way... she didn't mutilate herself.

Catlike Typist: Of course, once you have toes removed for "cosmetic purposes," your feet will only look good in those shoes for which you have had yourself mutilated. And not sandals, ever again.

Women doing crazy things for shoes is not new...

Chinese foot binding is the practice of breaking the toes and bending them underneath the sole of the foot. After breaking the toes, they take a 10 ft long bandage and bind the feet squeezing them into tiny shoes to maintain their shape.

So my little sister, and in fact all of the XX's from Grandma down share the same foot affliction below their big toe on both feet is a protrusion, as if one of the knuckles is too big.
Woo! found a pic, kinda: www.clevelandfai.com 
I don't know if this is the same problem, but all of their feet look like that and it's because of a bone growth. From my sister to my cousins to my aunt even, they all complain bitterly because they say it makes finding and wearing shoes extremely difficult and painful. If these surgeries were able to correct that deformity, I know all my kin would go for it in a heartbeat to make their feet hurt less.

A good pair of shoes can really make or break an outfit.

And high heels can make even dumpy legs look great. Above 3 inch heels and you're golden. Below that, and you're probably not going to look your best.

Don't chop your toes off, though. Just get shoes that wear well, and don't wear them for hours on end.

Shyla: Barricaded Gunman: Ugh...a thread that had a lot of sexy foot photo potential, and all we've seen are grotesque mutilations.

Feet are gross. That's the one fetish I really will never understand.

Also, I'm almost 5'10 and wearing heels makes me feel like an NBA player, so never really had to worry about that.


GOD DAMNED RIGHT!

No matter how much you take care of them, file down the callouses, paint the nails, etc, they're still bones and cartilage wrapped in a very thin and veiny layer of skin.(unless you're really fat) on top, and have thick and unforgiving skin on the bottom.

I think the attraction is a evolutionary throwback to when a bit of exposed ankle was sexy because it was all you really saw below the neckline.

Feet are gross, and I'd prefer not to look at them, much less touch them. They are not made for fun, they're made for function. Most people's feet see a life of being rode hard and put away wet, so to speak, and it shows.

They are the one part of everyone that is in contact with the ground for half of your waking hours, if they're not wrapped up in a sock/shoe and sweating from it, so either way they're dirty as all get out.

Women who make a habit of wearing heals are masochists, and women who make a habit of wearing heals and want
a footrub after work are sado-masochists.

For me, the sexiest thing about a foot is when it has a thick sock on it, even during sex. Ever go at it and get a scratch on a shin from a toenail? Get a toe caught in a loose thread?

That said, I don't have a sick foot phobia like some. I've got a nephew(two actually) that will get up and run away if it looks like a dirty sock or a foot will even get near them. Of course we tease them mercilessly(they're on the floor at a family gathering, you raise your foot when they're not looking and rub it on their arm, they go farking crazy, everyone laughs), but I can understand where it comes from.

Also, do yourself a favor and get boots that *fit*. Being as I grew up barefoot (and prefer barefoot to any shoe) I have wide, splayed toes -- thus I have to get boots with a wide toe-box. Uncomfortable shoes suck -- wear a prospective pair around the store for a while before you drop good money on something that doesn't fit right.

Heh. It actually increases the depth of your feet by a lot, or at least has for me, both in increased arch height and building all the wee muscles that support the arch. Most shoes with straps or high vamps don't fit across my foot at all. It's only gotten worse since i started wearing FiveFingers and ZemGears, and even most of the Five Fingers styles don't fit.

Cutting away bone to relieve constant pain (usually due to ill-fitting shoes, but not always) is not vanity. Bunions don't just look ugly, they feel awful too. Not everyone has exactly the same bunion problems, but some people really do need surgery to live without pain.

Why, did I ever tell you the tale of Paul Bunyon's surgery? It took two swimming pools of brandy just to calm him down, for starters. They had to use the spire from the Empire State Building as a needle, and it took half the drugs in downtown Detroit to knock him out. There were some unhappy junkies that day, I'll tell you what. The blood from the procedure created the Potomac River. It's cleaned up a bit since then, but only a little. But it was worth it. Once the whole thing was over, Pauline Bunyon lived a long, happy, female life. That blue ox wasn't the only babe after that surgery! What happened to the...leftovers? Well, you only THOUGHT the Washington Monument was made of marble. Now, you mind find this story tough to believe, but every word is 100% true.

mllawso: Uncomfortable shoes suck -- wear a prospective pair around the store for a while before you drop good money on something that doesn't fit right.


Even at that, you never know how a random pair of shoe's will loosen. I've got slightly odd feet(almost a wide but not quite), so you go snug normal shoes and they never loosen. Get a different pair and they loosen, and loosen, and then you're swimming in them. Shoe starts comphy, but you need more arch support, so the next support is comphy, feels good in the store, a week later the big arch support feels like it's trying to snap your foot in half, slowly inflating over time...
Buy a pair with a tiny bit of room at the toe, after a month if feels like an absolute cavern, but a pair snug at the toe and they never give, but instead drive your big toenail down into your flesh, driving to become ingrown.
The padding above the sole falls flat really quick, the seams inexplicably burst, the tongue has a cant to it and rides to the side through the day and ends up inside the shoe on the outside of your foot.
Where the tongue attaches, there's a seam(or a random seam on the outside by your small toe base knuckle), and it rubs the hell out of your toe knuckles.

AAAGGGHHH

I hate buying shoes, it's always a farking gamble. It's why shoe inserts are such big business.

Even socks, within the same brand, sometimes even stitch, some will inexplicably fray, some will have seams that rub wrong, some will have loose strings that entangle your toes like some kind of sentient predator, some sill slip really tight when you put on the shoes and not loosen, effectively like wrapping your toes under your feet. Some will loosed or even start to slip off your foot while inside your shoe, so you get folds in the sides or extra fabric bunched in the end of the shoe.. Of course, I blame the shoe companies here, as the materials used don't always slide easily on the sock, some almost act like velcro with normal white athletic socks. WTF are they thinking!?!?

I wear a size 12W shoe and can't be bothered to shop for heels. So I pretty much wear men's jogging shoes, size 10.5. Of course, that is the most popular men's size and hard to find. I can find ugly, ill-fitting and pain-inducing ladies 'dress shoes' in my size at Payless, or I can shop via catalog for stilettos, stripper heels, and thigh high boots in my size and width, but I am already tall and not in need of six inch lucite platform stilettos. Every catalog I have seen featuring large-size women's shoes, you can tell it is targeted toward transgendered males. The sizes go up to 17+. So it would still be buying men's shoes. I can't win.

However, even having large bony feet, I still have stilettos that I love and wear all the time. Most of the time I buy them a half size large and get supportive inserts for them. I would never EVER cut off a toe or consider this.

Of course, at my height, I can't wear stilettos in Chinatown without people running away and screaming "GODZIRRA!!" but that's neither here nor there. *shrug*

Honey, you can have mine. Gravity doesn't do good things to natural 36D's you've had since 16. I'd happily donate a cup size to the cause. You save a fortune on safety pins- I have three at least in every button down shirt, even if it fits just fine.

You know, I'm all for some petite woman gently "fisting"(more of a folded hand, and not very far either) another vaginally, on occasion, but that takes it to the extreme. There was literally an inside-out anus for crying out loud.

Can't say you didn't warn me, but it's like a train wreck, you've got to at least peak. Worth it? No, so I felt a further warning might help a few sleep better tonite.

Anyways, back to why hooking is illegal? It's to keep women down.

There is seriously no reason for prostitution to be illegal. As George Carlin put it, selling is legal and f*cking is legal, but selling f*cking isn't!
I understand the fears of women being taken advantage of, but they strike me as shallow fears and something that regulation would easily take care of. Were these activities legal the women could turn to the judicial system when they have issues instead of having to settle things extra-legally.

If I can draw a parallel, in many ways is is similar to the war on drugs. When there is a dispute in the dealing on black-market substances, both parties must settle their disputes with violence as they have no other recourse. Keeping prostitution illegal results in the same problems.

Prostitution is illegal so that men as a whole can maintain their advantage over women, by virtue of being a man. No other reason makes sense.

[threadjack, but what the hell, I'll reply]

There are a few supporting reasons. Not that I think it should be illegal mind you, but legitimate concerns.

1. STD's. They're still a very scary thing. The legal and somewhat regulated porn industry is plagued by it as is. We've proven we can't handle such things with any ability, and that's with people that won't be spreading what they have as much because it's not so much of a service business.

2. Sociey's wishes. We do still live in a democracy, unfortunately. The largest and loudest collection of assholes gets what they want. A lot of people still think sex is dirty, so that's what kind of laws we end up with. Weed and gay marriage are garnering more and more support, sure, but smokers have caught the short end of the stick lately because it's out of vogue, and people are trying to push that on food now, and have on alcohol since the beginning of time. All in the name of democracy.

3. The effect on society. Most everyone on fark hates things like Jersey Shore and the Kardashians, and from what I've seen of hookers, much like celebrities with zero education speaking out on political matters.... Do we want to incorporate another whole legion of Destiny, Chastity, and whatever other shallow stripper named populace we can think of...to our own progressive society? It takes zero education to be a hooker, and have it be a credible profession for little girls view as an option for going through life? What would be motivation for even attempting to get an education when you can make good money farking all day?

4. Logistics. In the modern world, you can't just say, "OK, it's legal now" without a whole lot of bad shiat happening. We'd need more government, more health care, more regulation and inspection, for safety of the workers and the johns, and to weed out abuse and other bad aspects of pimping.

I'm all for it, personally, if a good federal plan were drawn up to ensure good oversights. Could be a good source of revenue, but would also be expensive to run and oversee, so that could be a wash right there as far as the betterment of society goes.

I don't think it's a power struggle between men vs women issue, that's sort of an outrageous claim. Millions of men would vote for it, and millions of women against. Religion vs I don't give a fark, sure, that much is blatantly obvious.

Whoa, whoa.. Back up the women's studies bus, Sparky. Prostitution is illegal for some of the above mentioned reasons, but your conclusion suffers from insufficient input, I think.
Prostitution is also illegal because many married women do not want their husbands "needs" being fulfilled elsewhere. Once you attach a social stigma to it, societal pressures keep many of the more meek ones in line.
The oldest truism in the book goes like this: "Sex is the price women pay for marriage. Marriage is the price men pay for sex."
Pretty much any behavior exhibited by either gender can be boiled down to the simple engine that drives society as a whole- Women want to appear attractive in order to improve their choices in husband/mate material. They're geared for security- Security=healthy environment to raise children. Men will seek status, wealth or power to improve their chances at finding more attractive partners. Money/power=Sex.

Cutting toes off? This equals higher heels, more defined calves, and a rounder boo-tay. Prettier= "I can find a husband and have babies."

Even though I know you're talking about evolutionary drives and such, you do know some here just might fly off the handle and call you a misogynist pig, and write off your reasoning.

That's what some women's lib types don't understand, that a majority of women love men, and in that, use tried and true methods of retaining a good one, which mostly consists of give and take and compromise.

That's what your dead bus driver is blind to. That's why I said many men would vote in favor and women against prostitution. Each has their respective powers in that dynamic give and take situation. Men would lose zero power from having prostitution being legalized, I'd wager that most men would vote for it, and act confused when watching the news with his wife. "I have no idea why so many people voted for it Honey, really.". As men, sure, we're dominant and don't want to share, but we don't necessarily want other men to have to go without, even if their pals have to pay cash money for it, so secretly, every man in america in his anonymous poll booth, votes for prostitution.
 
2012-11-21 04:20:12 AM
Eh, I have no real beef with this.

1. It's voluntary-- they're doing it to themselves
2. It's elective-- the money for it is coming out of their pocket, my insurance rates stay where they are
3. It's hidden-- I don't have to see it, since the whole point is that the women that get it really want to wear shoes all the damned time.

Basically, if you wear heels so often that this actually seems worthwhile, and you intend to keep doing so, I don't see any reason not to do this. There's nothing particularly sacred about the default settings of the human body that makes chopping off superfluous bits a deadly sin.

//If you wear pointed shoes on a regular basis that toe is already basically atrophied anyhow.

Honestly I think that making things legal would help the situation a lot

1) STDs. I imagine that prostitutes would require licenses and insurance just as counties and states require for Masseurs and masseuses. Like back-rubbers the lic/ins is purchased once every year or three years and maintaining the license would be contingent on a monthly STD test. Similarly, this would result in STD clinics popping up that catered to these populations. More specifically, an STD only clinic.

2) Society's wishes... well fark. Those damn evangelicals claiming they love America and all it stands for while simultaneously being unable to desist basing their decisions and laws on the bible (or what they think is in the bible, more often than not).

3) Effect on society. I think the effect on society would be positive. I think the biggest issue the public has with it, besides knowing it occurs, is that it's often and necessarily out in the open. Where it legal meetings could be restricted to online contact and dedicated spaces like bordellos. Removing it (or reducing it's visibility) from the public eye. Like drugs, laws don't stop the behavior, it just drives it underground. Without prostitutes having to constantly check their back for cops, they wouldn't have to roam the streets looking for work. Between lower visibility and healthier workers and conditions I think this is a win/win. Recalling again that the option isn't between legal hooking and no hooking. But legal hooking and the illegal hooking that currently occurs.

4) logistics. While you are right, it would take time to put into place the infrastructure and staff necessary to pull this all off, it would start and eventually happen. Further these are permanent jobs. as support I suppose you can say. Best off you could probably pay for it all with the tax money they hookers would be bringing in. you have to remember that we are looking at long term and permanent changes. it will take a little time to build the industry but once it's there it is there forever. Honestly, I don't really see any problems here. Everything points towards more jobs, more tax revenue. Safer conditions for the hookers since they have legal recourse for issues that occur, and healthier whores. Everybody wins here.

Honestly I would think that the greater burden for a married man would be the decision to engage in infidelity. Once that has been decided, I'm not sure how much difference it makes if things are illegal. As things are, prostitution still occurs, a lot, it just is done in a shadier way.

But how the hell did a toe surgery thread turn into a prostitution discussion?


Logical conclusion to the topic at hand if you think about it. The heels are worn to increase attractiveness. Increasing attractiveness serves the purpose of mate-finding. Prostitution is just cutting out the middle man in the mate searching and umping straight to the copulation.

omeganuepsilon: I don't think it's a power struggle between men vs women issue, that's sort of an outrageous claim. Millions of men would vote for it, and millions of women against. Religion vs I don't give a fark, sure, that much is blatantly obvious.


I didn't address this, and earlier I wasn't very direct since I was drawing upon earlier conversations. I meant my comment to be seen in a larger scope. the people in power want to remain in power and want to reduce any threat to their power. Primarily White, christian, males in this country have sort of been at the top of the hill for quite some time now. Not long ago (only decades ago) just being one of these gave you an implicit advantage over a competitor who wasn't. All else being equal, a male would be chosen over a female A white man chosen over a minority, Christian over non-christian. Older white men remember these times and have been striving to hold onto their advantage as the world has changed. In this context prostitution has remained illegal because it was a way to control women, to increase their dependence on men and to assure it's that much more difficult to support themselves without any outside help. It's an attitude that has carried over from decades ago when sex was taboo and sex outside of marriage more so. then it was obvious to have hooking be illegal, since then it has been advantageous to have it remain so.
And, that's why I said that.

That much I agree with, more or less. Though I see often enough a set of boobs get a promotion over a working man often enough to say that it does work both ways. She doesn't even have to be pretty, just female. In the service it was pretty much a sure thing, if any male went in front of a board for promotion, competing against a female, she would win if she was not a complete fark up.(I did see that once, she was a total dirtbag).

In some jobs and area's of business, sure, women face that conservative older white male syndrome, I won't deny that, but I will deny that it's as universal as you imply. It may be somewhat frequent, but it's not an absolute rule.

I still don't buy the male power ticket either. That style of conservative is on it's way out, and wasn't really a majority any how. The more direct morality/religious issue is the cause, and even though it may have started that way decades, centuries, or even further back, that's not how people identify with the morals of today. They don't like prostitution because it's sex out of wedlock, the church says it's wrong, the wives think it's dirty, etc etc.

And this is my favorite part of talking with some feminists, if I may be so bold as to call you one.

They make assertions about how women are so great and powerful etc. Yet, what is wrong with the millions of typically considered strong christian women that would vote against such a law. Either women are weak, or they are not, you don't get it both ways.

It's the same as crusading against the media for making women starve themselves and such. Are women really so weak willed as to be victimized and controlled so easily? Making that statement is just as mysoginistic and prejudiced as thinking women are only fit to work in the kitchen, hell, the sentiments could come out of the same mouth without missing a beat.

If you want to fight the religion, fight the religion. If you want to empower women and fight men, do that. The two don't overlap and mix as neatly as you might think.

You don't get to directly imply weakness, and then talk about equal competancy. If you talk about strength and worthiness, you don't get to use weakness as a source of support.

You don't get to talk about equality, and then about reparations or scholarships for X only. You don't get to complain about being held back when you're just as prejudice as the next group of bigots. You see it in racism, religions arguing with other religions, sexism, etc. The equality argument only goes so far and then it's a steep cliff into false superiority. We are different, after all. Science has proven that, hormones, muscle mass, even the ability to process some categories of information is theorized, though there are outliers of each sex that excell where the other usually does.

The point, again, now that I've laid the groundwork in my roundabout way. There are a lot of women that would vote against prostitution for reasons listed in the thread, and laugh(or rage) in your face at your reasoning. To call them wrong would mean that they're somehow faulty and brainwashed by society(IF you are right about them being wrong, means they're weak.), and therefore your argument about equality falters.
If they're not inherantly flawed, as you almost posit, then you're not infallible and it's possible that you're wrong and they're right.

So which is it? Are women weak, or are women strong? Why are other women not allowed to have a different opinion than yours? Do you have something against them?
Keep in mind, I agree, as a white male, that prostitution should be made legal if it can be done relatively safely. I'd wager that most of fark is more like me as far as the men go, from what I've seen, and as I described above, would vote the same way. We all want our brothers to get laid, the more options the happier they'd all be. shiat, when you get down to it, on a global scale, we admit that the world would be a more peaceable place if every man could get laid as much as he wants. We'd do it for the betterment of the globe. By do it, I mean, vote that way, not fark other men. Some would, I'm sure, some wouldn't.

Religion vs Atheism though..... doesn't have that projection and inherent conflict of interest that plagues many other such conflicts. It's pretty much a simple argument, science > tall tales. That's it, and that's why religion is reliably faltering, and atheism is less and less of a dirty term or curse word. Slow, sure, but progress.

If you want to win based on rationality, you may want to drop the sexist argument, because you're kinda stabbing yourself in the foot on that one.

If you want to win based on being a vocal and irrational outrage adicct, I kindly ask that you remove yourself from the anti-religion panel, because you make us look bad.

first a brief prayer that I don't fark up the tags further along ramen

That much I agree with, more or less. Though I see often enough a set of boobs get a promotion over a working man often enough to say that it does work both ways. She doesn't even have to be pretty, just female. In the service it was pretty much a sure thing, if any male went in front of a board for promotion, competing against a female, she would win if she was not a complete fark up.(I did see that once, she was a total dirtbag).

In some jobs and area's of business, sure, women face that conservative older white male syndrome, I won't deny that, but I will deny that it's as universal as you imply. It may be somewhat frequent, but it's not an absolute rule.

I agree with you that it is on it's way out, and I think that is fantastic. My personal experience has been that meritocracy rules the day, but I am in a company and region where nothing less would be accepted. Hardware engineer (chips) / Silicon Valley. However I can speak for my mother's experiences as a software engineer in LA some 30 years ago, and they fired her in the spot when they found out she was pregnant. I was fortunate enough to go to Cal and be able to stay up here to work, and have never personally seen gender be an issue with hiring or advancement. When I speak of an old guard of white men, I'm primarily drawing upon a number of sociology classes I took.

I still don't buy the male power ticket either. That style of conservative is on it's way out, and wasn't really a majority any how. The more direct morality/religious issue is the cause, and even though it may have started that way decades, centuries, or even further back, that's not how people identify with the morals of today. They don't like prostitution because it's sex out of wedlock, the church says it's wrong, the wives think it's dirty, etc etc.

I agree with you again that it is on it's way out. However, inquiring as to why it's illegal now requires looking at why it was illegal and why it has stayed that way. I'll agree the morality probably played the biggest role in dictating that these behaviors are not alright, and the will to change this has not appeared in sufficient numbers to change this.

And this is my favorite part of talking with some feminists, if I may be so bold as to call you one.

I would say that I believe in equality more so than feminism, so to speak. (My girlfriend would say that about both of us too)

They make assertions about how women are so great and powerful etc. Yet, what is wrong with the millions of typically considered strong christian women that would vote against such a law. Either women are weak, or they are not, you don't get it both ways.

I think this is muddying our discussion a little bit, but I have seen this contradiction brought up and ignored before so I suppose it is worth noting, though I don't see how this contextually comes into things.
(heh.. comes into things)

It's the same as crusading against the media for making women starve themselves and such. Are women really so weak willed as to be victimized and controlled so easily? Making that statement is just as mysoginistic and prejudiced as thinking women are only fit to work in the kitchen, hell, the sentiments could come out of the same mouth without missing a beat.

agreed

If you want to fight the religion, fight the religion. If you want to empower women and fight men, do that. The two don't overlap and mix as neatly as you might think.

I don't think that one must necessarily high men to empower women. The push should be towards meritocracy, and gender shouldn't enter into the equation.

You don't get to directly imply weakness, and then talk about equal competancy. If you talk about strength and worthiness, you don't get to use weakness as a source of support.

You don't get to talk about equality, and then about reparations or scholarships for X only. You don't get to complain about being held back when you're just as prejudice as the next group of bigots. You see it in racism, religions arguing with other religions, sexism, etc. The equality argument only goes so far and then it's a steep cliff into false superiority. We are different, after all. Science has proven that, hormones, muscle mass, even the ability to process some categories of information is theorized, though there are outliers of each sex that excell where the other usually does.

I think possibly, again, you are attributing to me arguments I didn't make, but I understand how I would have led you to those conclusions.

The point, again, now that I've laid the groundwork in my roundabout way. There are a lot of women that would vote against prostitution for reasons listed in the thread, and laugh(or rage) in your face at your reasoning. To call them wrong would mean that they're somehow faulty and brainwashed by society(IF you are right about them being wrong, means they're weak.), and therefore your argument about equality falters.
If they're not inherantly flawed, as you almost posit, then you're not infallible and it's possible that you're wrong and they're right.

I must take offense to your implication that I am not infallible, clearly you don't know me =D
Seriously though, there is a disconnect here though that must be acknowledged. We can not make the assumption that a person will always vote for his best interests. That should be abundantly clear from the proportion of America that still voted for Mitt Romney even after it became clear the sort of policies he was advocating. A person is entitled to their vote and their reasoning but we can't assume that they will necessarily vote in the direction that benefits them or the greater group that they are a member of.

So which is it? Are women weak, or are women strong? Why are other women not allowed to have a different opinion than yours? Do you have something against them?
Keep in mind, I agree, as a white male, that prostitution should be made legal if it can be done relatively safely.

We'd do it for the betterment of the globe. By do it, I mean, vote that way, not fark other men. Some would, I'm sure, some wouldn't.

I think legalization is the more rational approach to the situation for (in part) the reasons that I have laid out above. Again I would stress that parallels between sex and drugs both being illegal and the problems that arise as a result. I also think that in time both will be fully legalized. As morality is seen as a lesser and lesser motivation for our judicial restrictions and cost/benefit and risk/reward analysis starts to weigh more heavily we will see changes. It just may take some time.

Religion vs Atheism though..... doesn't have that projection and inherent conflict of interest that plagues many other such conflicts. It's pretty much a simple argument, science > tall tales. That's it, and that's why religion is reliably faltering, and atheism is less and less of a dirty term or curse word. Slow, sure, but progress.

I agree here. And I hate the argument that atheism "requires just as much faith" It demonstrates that the speaker fundamentally doesn't understand the issues at hand.

If you want to win based on rationality, you may want to drop the sexist argument, because you're kinda stabbing yourself in the foot on that one.

That's fair, though personally I believe it still plays a part in all this, but if the argument can be won without bringing it up, all the better.

If you want to win based on being a vocal and irrational outrage adicct, I kindly ask that you remove yourself from the anti-religion panel, because you make us look bad.

If they ever start allowing donations my sister in law will be happy to off load some of hers. I think she is currently in an H.

Honestly though, the older I get, the less I care. Which is good because I can't afford them anyway. :)

stu1-1: LovingTeacher: Carlo disappeared into the back room for a moment, and then reappeared carrying an ordinary shoebox. He took off the lid and removed a hideous pair of black and white pumps. But this was not an ordinary pair of black and white pumps; both were left feet, one had a right angle turn with separate compartments that pointed the toes in impossible directions. The other shoe was six inches long and was curved inward like a rocking chair with a vise and razor blades to hold the foot in place.

Carlo spoke hesitantly, ". . . Now you see . . . they' re not fit for humans . . ." "Put them on me."
"But... "Put them on me!"
Carlo knew all arguments were useless. He knelt down before her and forced the feet into the shoes.
The screams were incredible.
Anna crawled over to the mirror and held her bloody feet up where she could see.
"I like them."
She paid Carlo and crawled out of the store into the street.
Later that day, Carlo was overheard saying to a new customer, "Well, that's it. That's every pair of shoes in the place. Unless, of course, you'd like to try the cruel shoes."

It's from wearing shoes with pointed toes. There is surgery available for it, but the wise thing to do is not wear pointy shoes in the first place. But of course fashion always trumps common sense.

/never understood why women want to wobble around in those stupid high heels


I have strong ankles. I NEVER wobble.

There are some women who can't do heels. My older sister is one of them. Even wedges. You'd think she was on a balance beam.

Some men don't like their women to look like androgynous humans. I personally prefer the division of the sexes- men masculine, women feminine.

Ladies, the secret to good high heels is one good, well made pair of $125 heels is way better than six pairs of $25 heels from Ross. They aren't made well. I on the other hand have three pairs of 4.5 and 5 inch stilettos I got from Macy's. I saved and paid full price for them. They're supportive, have enough room for toes, and don't fall apart. I can walk around all night on those comfortably. 

Also, they slim up your butt and legs. And some men think they're hot. But they'll only think they're hot if you're not falling over and biatching about how much your feet hurt. If you're gonna wear them, do it right or not at all. They're not for everyone.

omeganuepsilon: For me, the sexiest thing about a foot is when it has a thick sock on it, even during sex. Ever go at it and get a scratch on a shin from a toenail? Get a toe caught in a loose thread?

Jesus, who or what are you f#cking that all this horrorshow nonsense is occuring? In my experience, most women enjoy having their feet massaged, and maintain them appropriately, and I for one am happy to oblige.

Gentlemen, you know that one thing you want her to do? No, not that.... THAT. Yes. If you rub her feet, she will more than likely do it. I am not kidding.

Barricaded Gunman: Gentlemen, you know that one thing you want her to do? No, not that.... THAT. Yes. If you rub her feet, she will more than likely do it. I am not kidding.


My wife has the most adorable little feet in the universe. I'd rub them for the enjoyment of it even if she didn't let me stick it in her pooper.

High heels mean zip when it comes to being feminine or masculine. It's the proportions, facial features, voice, and smell (not talking about perfume here) that make the difference.

Not sure when it became taboo that straight men like women in high heels.

After a quick scan through all of your replies, you're officially my favorite feminist sounding backer of equality. You read and understand, and even reply playfully, and not so dreadfully outrage-y. A whole handful of rarities in one clever and tolerant bundle.


Well thank you, thank you a lot. I suppose I'll share a little story, just because (also cuz my gf is on my mind).
So, I found recently that it was very important to me that I had developed my views on equality independently of my girlfriend. Almost certainly, had I not evolved such views already I would inherit them from her, but it's much better to have come to the same conclusions on my own. Although she and I have only been dating since the end of July, we have been best friends for, almost 24 years now =o (Jesus), since we were 6. We've also been pretty deeply in love for a couple of years but somehow didn't decide to start dating till my little sisters wedding. Anyways. Women's issues and equality is a discussion that's come up between us many, many times over the years and we've generally always seen eye to eye on things; although sometimes my tolerance of some things is higher than hers, as is evidenced by my being on FARK and not hers. It's important to me that I developed these views prior to our dating because in it's own way the very idea of parity is a tenet of our relationship (I guess you could say) and our interactions with the world. It's very nice to be with someone who not only feels like I do, but really believes like I do and acts as such. It's worth noting we are some 400+ miles from each other, so we only get to see each other on short visits back and forth. It means for both of us, not compromising or a core belief (equality) and being able to live freely and happily and without any concerns of how discussions between us may effect things; we both know each other well enough by now that we can't help but be completely open about things, which is nice.I'm doing a poor job of explaining this. I like knowing this is a core belief of mine and not partially a belief and partially adapted to be closer to the girl I love. And... time to shower and take a train to a shuttle to a plane to a car to my parents.

I have a feeling it goes along with the whole 'men will fark anything with a vagina' stereotype. Men don't care about the physical attractiveness of women, men just want to get in women's pants. So ugly shoes are fine, as far as the stereotype is concerned.

Well yeah, but a flower is only as good as its petals. Women look good when they dress up, far moreso than if they wear shapeless garb. And your picture actually illustrated MY point. Too many men out there in skinny jeans, wearing eyeliner and waxing their bodies. Ew.

No pix of women wearing FM shoes?

Fark disappoints.

Coco LaFemme: I'm 5'2, so I wear heels a lot when dressing up because it makes me look better in my clothes, but I'm not so vain as to mutilate myself in order to wear a smaller shoe size. The shiat women do to themselves for no good reason.......baffles the imagination. You know, if the media/fashion industry/Hollywood hadn't convinced women that they need to be a size 0, cut off toes to wear expensive shoes, get size GGG breasts and enough Botox that they'll never blink again, maybe just maybe we'd see more young girls saying their #1 aspiration was to be President rather than a model or an actress.

I know, I know....I sound fat. No, just fed up with women who torture themselves for no reason other than to be trendy.


No, you don't sound fat. You sound as though you believe everyone but the women in question are responsible for their insane choices.

Honestly, I prefer women in chewed-up sneakers, jeans, and a shirt with or without a baggy sweater, and zero make-up. IOW a woman who is comfortable with what she is and how she looks, doesn't give a crap what other people think of her looks, and has better things to do with her time and money anyway.

Hygiene is a must, though.

So you wear like what - a size 5 women's? That's the size i always see on huge sale on all the shoe sites (Zappos, etc) and end up cursing women with little feet who can get beautiful heels on the ultracheap. Seriously, check eBay; i have a friend who wears a women's 4 and is always turning up deals.
