Because this dude from the 1930s says almost verbatim what I’ve been saying for years:
Will the day ever come when this last citadel of fashionable distortion of the [female] body will be captured and razed, and when will women get over the notion that there is beauty to be achieved by wearing on the foot a leather harness designed expressly to throw it out of position, destroy its beautiful mechanical efficiency, cripple it in and out of action, and make it look from in front as much as possible like a hoof?
We’ll probably “get over the notion” just as soon as male-dominated media stops shoving the god damned notion down our fucking throats every waking moment.
Also, funny story, men also wore high heels, for centuries before the 20th. In my more bitter Radical Man-Hating Feminazi moments, sometimes I think it’s not a coincidence that high heels suddenly became exclusive to women and shot up to ridiculous heights right around the time we got the vote in most western democracies. If we have to give you legal representation, then we will compensate by hobbling you!
Yeah, that’s probably just one of those ironic timing things.
