The footfall of humanity

I have often wondered at the facile foolishness exhibited and promoted by ‘modern’ women in the strange and esoteric area of what they wear. There are so many targets of opportunity that, in order to actually write in a sane manner, you have to be very selective: so I choose one area alone; namely shoes.

The single largest component of bodily injury, pain and skeletal deformation in females is a direct result of women, of all ages, wearing high-heeled shoes. But they, despite years of warnings and proof of the damages, just ignore the inevitable outcomes, and continue to wear heels. But why do they do this? Is it simply a case of ‘I’ll do whatever I like’, or ‘they don’t know what they are talking about’, or simply; ‘Don’t tell me what to do, its my life, and my body’! Every time a woman places high heeled shoes on her feet, she doesn’t examine the forces which prevail within her anatomical and skeletal structure: I believe that she looks in the mirror, nods at the reflection and assures herself she looks more ‘feminine’, more ‘alluring’, simply more sexy! In other words; it is simple vanity.


Mankind has evolved over millennia from primitive apes to Homo Sapiens, our bodies have evolved over ten million years, and our bodies have adjusted from the dangerous demands of living as hunter-gatherers; where it was kill or be killed, from an age when the keenest eyesight, the best hearing, was seated alongside a physical strength needed to run down and overcome a mammoth: to the present, when the greatest exertion most of us are capable of is running down the stairs to catch a Tube train, or a bus. Alongside our strength and senses, our bodies have adapted to the way we live; we do not exercise, or at least most of us don’t; large proportions of the industrialised world’s populations earn our living, or even fill our days, seated in front of a computer screen. But one of the areas which we have in common is the truth that we all want to be comfortable; so why, in the name of all that is sane, do large percentages of womankind insist on wearing shoes which will wreak havoc upon the way that they will exist for the next forty years?

From learned papers, to mainstream news, the word has gone out; high heels are bad news; but do women take any notice? Do they hell!

As a final foot(sorry)note, I also link to a very informative video which states the viewpoint of the commentator on all aspects of the damage sustained to the wearer from high-heeled shoes; but with one huge difference; this lecture is given under the auspices of an Islamic Digital Mimbar, (whatever that translates as) and the initial sentence tells us the greatest difference between what we believe as has been shown by science, e.g. Darwinian evolution, and the belief structure of the whole Islamic world,, which states that EVERYTHING is and will remain as Allah has ordained. The ruling initial sentence is:-

To change or do things from the Natural Way Allah has created us leads to problems.

Says it all, really. It explains why Muslim medical students do not attend lectures which utilise information gained from Darwinian treatises, because they believe that their god created everything at the same time, and it has remained in stasis for ever.

    “To change or do things from the Natural Way Allah has created us leads to problems.”
    As a (now retired, thank goodness) Police officer in a county force with a fairly large Muslim population, I worked on a team involved in investigating and prosecuting those who practised, or supported, female genital mutilation.
    During one specific interview with an educated Muslim community leader, in which he explained that it was not necessary for a woman to have a clitoris as Allah provided all the pleasure necessary. I asked if he considered Allah to be perfect. When he replied in the positive, I then asked why he was involved in altering or removing something which Allah considered essential otherwise he wouldn’t have made women with that organ? His solicitor asked what my point was. I suggested that either Allah was not perfect in giving females something that later was cut out, or Muslims were going against the word of Allah in removing something he had deliberately made, possibly in order to cope with their apparent inherent guilt over being sexually inadequate.
    I was subsequently removed from that team and posted to the other side of the county. My feelings were mixed as I was no longer involved in investigating these horrendous acts against female children, but also happy that I no longer had to work in the sh#thole these people had turned the area into. I still have not found any Muslim able to answer my question.

      If Allah provided all the pleasure then why does he need a willy? Sauce for the goose.

        Lord T,
        If they didn’t have a willy, silly, they couldn’t breed. On the other hand, good thinking!

    This just proves evolution doesn’t happen as otherwise our females would have evolved to need high heels from birth. 🙂

      High T,

      Erm… well, probably,,,,erm, can I call you back later, after I have removed the dagger from my back: my neighbour’s wife is a little touchy about her shoes…if you catch my drift?

    And that goes for short men in platforms too!

      I thought for one terrible minute that you were writing about diminutive men using train stations, and then found my glasses, and discovered ‘in’ not ‘on’! Lucky, that!
