MisogynyMarch 23, 2011
I understand there is this sexist prejudice and ideology we call misogyny, where women are hated and made this dictum as a basis for their oppression in this male-dominated society.
This misogynistic action is manifested in many different ways in our lives, from jokes to pornography to violence to the self-contempt where women are being taught how to feel for their own bodies and most importantly how women are crippled by this fancy? Unusual? Type of shoe.
There are actually a lot of these proliferating in the internet, be it untrue, photoshopped or whatever you call it, to me this is not fashion, this is not fancy – this is torture to the highest extent, and yet we women did nothing to avert this thing, we even support this billion-dollar stiletto industry, we even romanticize it, we long to get a Choo, we dreamed of wearing a Manolo … hopeless! Isn't it?
Or would you rather just chew it and live with it?
