We are discussing the grand aspects of the new world order, but how about the minute. Is it possible that certain cultural habits are directly linked to the new world order tactic of oppression? Take heels and how they are - quite literally - shoved on women's feet.

Originally I thought it was just a form of femal dress wear. But from what I learned from? I dont know. Hope all is going as well as it can.

Now you go too far!
I like the way women look, I don't want them all to be wearing sack cloths and flats! What am I gonna ogle if that happens?
Oh, and women are short so need the height boost so they can reach stuff.

My wife chooses to wear heels and when to wear them, sometimes that choice is made in haste in my opinion. As in when she bitches that her feet hurt from wearing heels all day. I think to myself, "Well, DUH!" but am smart enough to keep my mouth shut.

Umm Ever worn heels? I've worn shoes with abnormal bits, and if anything heels are an oppression of vanity.

Not sure what angle your title means - female oppression as in they will oust males with thee mad feet - or
Female Oppression, as in man will rule over them and bind their feet!

Oo

high heels are stupid imo.. I love nothing more than a bare foot woman, walking on a beach, flicking sand and smiling as she notices me...

*usually coz Im the ugly bastard staring.. lol*

As far as I know heels first became popular to help with Horse riding, helping to keep the stirrups on your shoes, and were used by both men and women, and have slowly developed, and gone in and out of fashion for both sexes.

If you want an example of proper oppression through foot wear try Chinese foot binding, a now thankfully obsolete practice that often left the woman more or less unable to walk and disabled.

As a side note, something similar is sometimes done by modern day fetishists in the form of ballet boots, which are designed to make it hard to walk and restrict movement, but they are only worn for short periods where they don't do any damage

Heels are a direct expression of female sexuality. Some heels are even given the label of "come ==== me shoes"
and they do have a particular style.

Those of us that are in what is commonly called "saloon society" have always known this. When it comes to seducing the fairer sex, if you don't know the cues, you waste a lot of time.

Yaah, now we're talkin'.

Stretch the leather up the calves from those heels and you have a pair of "F--k me boots"!

My wife agreed to throw away a pair of her 'old ones' before she buys a new pair, we don't have room for my three pair of shoes.....

Yes, that and corsets. All torture devices designed to make us "more attractive".

But wait...

High heeled shoes for women may have been around at least since hellenistic greece, and possibly since ancient Egypt. So if the NWO has been around for the last 6000 years or so you may have something otherwise...

I'm inclined to think it's men imposing restrictions on womens bodies to reinforce the power structure (and conveniently enough to make it harder for us to run away.)

Oppression? Nobody is forced to wear high heels.

I look at it as another way women can catch their prey. Look at men as fish. The women use heels, makeup, earrings, jewelry dress, to attract the fish. Men are weak when it comes to an attractive female as their hormones do the talking. Nothing finer than a woman strolling along in heels and a skirt showing off those legs. I'm on the stringer at that point.
