Re: LKWD Strutting Heels - June 26th

It is true that platformmed shoes and heels were historically worn through history by male nobility. It took a long time in fact for commoner females to adopt the practice. Its quite weird to wrap your head around it being previously a 'masculine' practice, but it once was. Along with powdered wigs, cakey makeup and male corsets these were common place for men to wear once upon a time....

Men in high heels?  That just aint right.  Conspiracy to turn men gay?


The men’s march in high heels, hosted by the Sure Help Line Crisis Center, was created to incorporate men in the fight against sexualized violence.Do you think they are gays?

You're right. There is a portrait of Louis XIV , a king of France in high heels.
