So you think your shoes hurt you????

  1. I just received this email:

    You probably heard about this ancient tradition in China... the ladies would bind their feet from a young age because they thought small feet were "sexy" and a sign beauty.

  3. Foot binding is just horrible
  4. OMG I feel sick, there is a split in her foot like a heel on a shoe not to mention the toes OUCH!!!

    I heard something once that depending how they where bound toe nails could grow through the feet!!
  5. :wtf:
  6. whoa, that is crazy. I have never seen this in a real picture!
  7. hmm yeah I'd also heard what men did with that split :throwup:
  8. it's also a sign of wealth. typically women who bind their feet do not have to walk much.

    but yes those pictures are absolutely horrible. i can't believe they did that.
  9. It makes me want to hurl. Plus the look of pride on the old woman's face is unbelievable. I want to cry for her and she's all smiles?
  10. Oh my god.. how is her heel like that. I dont like it at all.... :shocked::oh:
  11. ick...poor thing...
  12. thats so horrible I hope young Chinese women today have the sense to speak out no-one should have to live like that!
  13. :wtf::wtf::wtf:
  14. wow at what age do they start doing that? its crazy
  15. no open toe'd shoes for her....
