Real Men Wear High Heels
Men's high heels, now there's a fashion trend likely to blow the mind of clothing conservatives. But why shouldn't men wear high heels? Why should a man be restricted to his natural height, or wearing complicated lift arrangements that make him taller in a stealthy kind of way?
In the past, men could wear high heels as much as they wanted, in fact, high heels were an essential part of the well dressed gentleman's wardrobe. If you happen to be against the idea of men wearing high heels, before objecting with your poor spelling, atrocious grammar and lack of historical education, (it's a bit of a stereotype I know, to say that people who have a problem with men wearing a wide range of fashions tend to be blithering idiots, but it's a stereotype that has formed itself over the years and is backed by plenty of barely comprehensible comments that serve as proof,) please do take a few minutes out of your busy schedule of bigotry to familiarize yourself with the history of heels.
Height has always been associated with masculinity. The old cliché 'tall dark and handsome' has been around for hundreds of years. Women are attracted to tall men, and it is for this reason that men first started wearing shoes with heels. Initially, women did not wear heels, after all, why would they want to make themselves look more masculine by making themselves look taller? If you're going to do that, why not just strap down your bosom and shave your head at the same time?
Times have changed however, and post political and fashion revolution, modern women have commandeered high heels and enjoy traipsing about the place, pinching their toes and giving themselves lower back problems as a result. Men who want to wear high heels are often sneered at by these women who are unaware that they are in fact, wearing a style that was designed for men. Its a lovely piece of fashion irony when cross dressing women mock men who are simply reclaiming their own styles.
Some men do buck the fashion trend and wear high heels in public, and much kudos goes to them, for they are the fashion pioneers, the brave and bold men who, unafraid of what people might think or say, go their own way.
What is more manly? To reclaim a style of clothing lost in a bloody revolution, or to simper about in whatever pathetic scraps of leather are tossed at men these days, too frightened to go against popular opinion and the fickle edicts of the fashion world?
Oh yes, real men wear high heels.
