i knew about the chinese foot biding, which ended in the beggining of the XXth century (another link : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot_binding)
@nazihater : these fat farms are used so a man can show his wife as a sign of wealth ! Because while other people generally have not enough to eat, if your family can maintain a group of fatty it is a sign that you have enough money to put into foodIn general, men never saw a woman's bound feet, as they were always concealed within tiny "lotus shoes". Feng Xun is recorded as stating, "If you remove the shoes and bindings, the aesthetic feeling will be destroyed forever." Some scholars have claimed that the erotic effect was a function of the tiny steps and swaying walk of a woman whose feet had been bound. The very fact that the bound foot was concealed from men's eyes was, in and of itself, sexually suggestive.
It is the same in western countries where you can see people with expensive clothings while being manicured and artificially "enhanced" (fake boobs, botox, liposuction and etc.)
Anyway, this is NOT really a "men are better than women" thing, especially as in most other african countries where these practices are applied, it is the men who bear all the fat to say "i have money".
It's culture.. and it's dying out *Shrugs* I've seen something on that before.
XP like culture used to idealize flat/boy-shaped women too... different things at different times.. XP too bad in a way.
I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
