Because we are the smarter gender.

Cowboy boots don't count?

Agreed. I hadn't thought to connect the homogenization of men's clothing to Enlightenment ideas about gender.

Because their wives came home unexpectedly?

Depends on the man's age. Just as he gets too fat for high heels, he can start wearing a bra. Thanks middle-age!

My work boots all have heel. s on them -- they just stand at a practical height. Boots without a heel feel funny.

Try the west village, or san francisco. I'm sure you'll find...males who where high heels.

I believe there were safety issues involved, primarily while dancing.

Cause your friends don't dance
And if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine.

Maybe the BBC should attend Fantasy Fest in Key West.

What do they call it when doctors break your jaw so they can re-set it to be more manly?

RTA, It really was the aristocrats. The Persians proved why cowboy boots needed heels, but the aristocrats made it gay.

Really no one else caught that.

I'm sorry, but pinstripes on a hat is just tacky.

So wearing heels is like wearing cycling shoes? Both are specialized footwear for riding and completely useless for walking.

Someone figured how to sew pants together to make them one article of clothing.
 
2013-01-26 09:40:29 AM  
Because they made our legs look so good chicks got jealous. Same reason men stopped wearing makeup.
 
2013-01-26 09:40:53 AM  
Gay men in high heels.

Yes, BBC. A rare sight.

You mean a small article of silk that only morons would tighten to the point of strangulation?

Worn heels most of my life. As in cowboy boots with tall, slanted heels. Great for walking through puddles. Because they're cut back, it's easy to balance on the back edge of the heels, walk on them like stilts, and keep your soles completely out of the water.
