It won’t be long now before Forbes puts a half-naked D-list “actress” covered in whipped cream on its cover.

*Whew*, I’m so glad I hold myself to higher standards than to entertain company such as yours, Buffy. One less bullet to note and easily dodge.

Foot binding was a status symbol, women willingly had it done..it proved that the woman was well off enough not to have to work in the fields. Of course by modern standards it’s horrifying, but so are lip plates and neck rings and all sorts of things people in other cultures do to themselves to show status. American women willingly laced themselves into whale-bone corsets regardless of the fact that it left them unable to draw a full breath and was bad for their circulation.

I’d like to see you get upset about something current…where is American female’s outrage at female cicumcision, and honor killing in Muslim countries? You all seem to be fixated on the past– women were always oppressed, foot binding, rule of thumb(proven to be false),past matriarchies and on and on and on. Outrages against women in other countries NOW, much more severe than a nasty magazine article are occurring daily.

Maybe you should bind your feet and your mouth—-Ann Coulter would never bind her feet.

I think you are a man posing as a woman—-too negative towards women!

What the hell does Ann Coulter have to do with this discussion? Do you deny that women everywhere go through painful procedures to compete with other women? Foot binding was done in the upper classes in China, to show that those women were of too high a status to work in the fields. This is fact. How does this make me ‘too negative’?

Actually, Crella—It was you other comments to me and other women on this foreum I thought was too negative and harsh.  Many men on this have been out of line to women stating their opinions in a polite way.  I was just giving them a bad time back.

I do find you to be very intelligent in your responses though.

I am a woman, but I firmly believe that we are our own worst enemy. My father and grandfathers were wonderful men, but they took no crap and they didn’t dish it out either. I was raised to take full responsibility for my actions and opinions and I’ve tried to uphold that all my life.I have a pretty male outlook for a woman.

I am a good bit older than most of the women here. I have both worked full time (I was head admin at a clinic) and been at home. I have seen both sides, and I remember America pre-feminism. I was also very lucky in that my grandparents all lived at least into their late 80’s (my great-grandfather died at 101 when I was 14) and I heard all their life stories, and I am the keeper of the family photos and records. I have to say that so much of what young women today believe to be our past is bunkum, and this is why I come out swinging. And yes, I am harsh. I hate bullsh*t period, if I see it, I’m calling you on it.

We do not help ourselves to look intelligent when we resort to ‘homo’ ‘you’re small’ ‘I wouldnt look at you’ comments…it just makes women look like petulant children, not worthy of intelligent consideration. It is much better to debate with logic than with insults.

The explosion in Plastic And Cosmetic Surgery to enhance one’s appearance willingly is being done by Women to compete for Male Companions. It is Women who willingly submit to this. Feminism’s latest mutation “**bleep** Feminism” is women flaunting their Sexuality as a sign of their “Empowerment”. Our Universities invite Female Porn Stars, have exhibits on how to **bleep** for Women. And pay Sex Therapists to teach Women the joys of “Sapphic Love”. Women in this culture are Schizophrenic. They were demanding not to be treated as sex objects in the 19790s. And today stand in circles and chant “**bleep**, **bleep**, I am my **bleep**”.

Women are submitting voluntarily to painful and expensive surgery to become Virgins again. And others are having their toes shortened to wear extremely High, Stilleto Heels. They are doing this to attract Men. I do not see Men demanding Women do this. Nice try but it won’t sell. Foot binding indeed.
