^This.

I knew it we would eventually be justified in comparing foot binding to the modern woman's vain attempts to *tinyfy her feet.

/cutting off your toe?!?!

More like the evil stepsister procedure:

When evening came Cinderella wanted to leave, and the prince tried to escort her, but she ran away from him so quickly that he could not follow her. The prince, however, had set a trap. He had had the entire stairway smeared with pitch. When she ran down the stairs, her left slipper stuck in the pitch. The prince picked it up. It was small and dainty, and of pure gold.

The next morning, he went with it to the man, and said to him, "No one shall be my wife except for the one whose foot fits this golden shoe."

The two sisters were happy to hear this, for they had pretty feet. With her mother standing by, the older one took the shoe into her bedroom to try it on. She could not get her big toe into it, for the shoe was too small for her. Then her mother gave her a knife and said, "Cut off your toe. When you are queen you will no longer have to go on foot."

These stupid b*tches also take their 'trendy' pets to the shelter when they no longer fit their lifestyle or color scheme.
Let them rot from poor decisions.

Anna knew She had to have a new pair of shoes today, and Carlo had helped her try on every pair in the store. Carlo spoke wearily, "Well, that's it. That's every pair of shoes in the place."

"Oh, you must have one more pair...."

"No, not one more... . Well, we have the cruel shoes, but no one would want to try..."

"Yes, let me see the cruel shoes!"

"No, you don't understand, you see, the cruel shoes are...'

"Get them!"

Carlo disappeared into the back room for a moment, and then reappeared carrying an ordinary shoebox. He took off the lid and re-moved 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 sepa-rate 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."

If you need to undergo foot surgery to wear expensive shoes to make you feel confidant, you need to just quit while you're not ahead and eat a bullet. Normal people gain confidence through actions and accomplishments, so these losers who need shoes for confidence clearly are shallow husks who do nothing worthwhile with their lives.

We live in a country where millions of people are denied necessary medical care because they can't pay.  Where people go bankrupt because they can't pay the bills for medical care that they needed to save their lives.  Then you've got rich coonts who demand foot surgery so they can were the cute shoes, even more disgusting, punk ass doctors willing to operate on women's feet despite the fact that it's medically unnecessary.

Fark this world.

I've thought about cutting off my pinkie toes. Not because I want to wear shoes but because I've smashed them so many time that they are kinda deformed now.

You needed a doctor to cut toes off your junk?

As for me, I have flawless feet (size 6 1/2, B) so I do not have this problem. Otoh, I do not wear stiletto heels, insanely pointy toed shoes, Uggs, Crocs, Birkenstocks, or anything else that tends to give you weird feet, which is WHY I have flawless feet despite my age.
 
2014-04-27 10:09:31 PM  
I'm honestly surprised that a licensed doctor agreed to this and didn't immediately and without hesitation scream "GTFOut of my office!"

Hippocrates aside, you know the very second one of these people develops knee problems later in life he's going to get sued so horribly.

FYI ladies, heterosexual males don't give a fark what kind of shoes you wear. They do care if your feet are all farked up because you wear shoes that torture them.

I wore heels for most of my life, until birkenstock pregnancy times, and then MS.

Let me get this straight. I'm sure you're aware that there are licensed doctors out there that practice various forms of plastic surgery, not for fixing the face of someone that was horribly disfigured in an accident, but because they have last years chin. "Jane down the street has these perfect cheekbones, I must have them!" Yet this is somehow surprising? Biatches , and a fair chunk of men too, are vain. I'm actually kind of surprised it took this long for this kind of thing to show up.

Doesn't doing basically anything to your foot completely destroy your gait?

Which then blows out your knees and back?

Does it harm the patient? Does taking off a toe or two, objectively, INJURE the person who it's being done to? Then why not do it?

It's sick and weird, but it's not really "harm".

Then there was Ethel Granger who had internal organs removed to get the world's smallest waist, and slept in a corset to achieve her 13" waist.  Why?  Her husband requested it.
