Not Quite a Lady

Oriental women once was stereotyped as a sweet, demure, gentle lady, pleasant in speech and action but then that was yes, just a stereotype and most probably applicable only in the good old days. Recently in a parking bay in Singapore, a passerby recorded a woman in her 20s slapping her boyfriend and hitting the private parts of her boyfriend with her high-heel shoes. Ah! That reminds me of stilettos and the old Chinese practice of binding womens' feet.Foot binding (chánzú, literally "bound feet") was a custom practiced on young girls and women for approximately one thousand years in China, beginning in the 10th century and ending in the early 20th century. It is said that it was first practised among the elite and only in the wealthiest parts of China where the girls do not have to do manual labor and live only to serve their men and direct household servants while performing no labor themselves but then bound feet eventually translated into sexual desirability among elite men. From the 10th century, some 2 billion Chinese wome had their feet bound. These include Han Chinese girls from the wealthiest to the richest peasants and the majority of the Minority People in China. The Manchu women were forbidden to bind their feet by an edict from the Emperor after the Manchu started their rule of China in 1644 while the Hakka of southern China had never practise food binding at all. Foot-binding as it is, causes deformities which could be permanent, especially if a girl's arches had been broken. If foot-binding is to satisfy a man sexual fantasy, perhaps the stilettos would be a better alternative. Stilettos give the optical illusion of a longer, slimmer leg, a smaller foot, and a greater overall height and alter the wearer's posture and gait, flexing the calf muscles, and making the bust and buttocks more prominent and though it still causes all kinds of painful problems, including painful back problems, it doesn't seem so barbaric unless of course, the wearer uses it to slap and hit the private parts!
