    I’ve seen this image going around, and I feel compelled to point out that it’s only half-right. It’s true that high heels were originally a masculine fashion, but they weren’t originally worn by butchers - nor for any other utilitarian purpose, for that matter.

    High heels were worn by men for exactly the same reason they’re worn by women today: to display one’s legs to best effect. Until quite recently, shapely, well-toned calves and thighs were regarded as an absolute prerequisite for male attractiveness. That’s why you see so many paintings of famous men framed to show off their legs - like this one of George Washington displaying his fantastic calves:

    … or this one of Louis XIV of France rocking a fabulous pair of red platform heels (check out those thighs!):

    … or even this one of Charles I of England showing off his high-heeled riding boots - note, again, the visual emphasis on his well-formed calves:

    In summary: were high heels originally worn by men? Yes. Were they worn to keep blood off their feet? No at all - they were worn for the same reason they’re worn today: to look fabulous.

    so then how did they become a solo feminine item of attire?

    A variety of reasons. In France, for example, high heels fell out out of favour in the court of Napoleon due to their association with aristocratic decadence, while in England, the more conservative fashions of the Victorian era regarded it as indecent for a man to openly display his calves.

    But then, fashions come and go. The real question is why heels never came back into fashion for men - and that can be laid squarely at the feet of institutionalised homophobia. Essentially, heels for men were never revived because, by the early 20th Century, sexually provocative attire for men had come to be associated with homosexuality; the resulting moral panic ushered in an era of drab, blocky, fully concealing menswear in which a well-turned calf simply had no place - a setback from which men’s fashion has yet to fully recover.

    FASHION HISTORY IS HUMAN HISTORY OK

    Thank you, history side of tumblr. That “stay out of blood” thing has been driving me mad.

    Tbh, heels are like leather gloves. Got blood on the floor? Wear some heels. Wife doesn’t have to know.

    Do NOT shame people for choosing not to go to school.

    Do NOT insult people for dropping out.

    Do NOT teach your children that dropping out means you are a failure. 

    You never know what’s going on in that person’s life.

    Just DON’T DO IT.

    Reblog because relevant to the essay i just finished.

    My mom got called on to read aloud in class and came across the word ‘island’ and pronounced the s (is-land) and the whole class laughed at her and the teacher told her she was stupid.  She grew up hating reading and has literally not read any books, newspapers, magazines, etc. since my sister and I were younger and then she only read us children’s books because she ‘had to.’  So like, don’t do this.

    I grew up hating talking because sometimes I had to pause and change my words up when I realized that while I knew the right words, I’d never heard them out loud. Obviously being mocked when I tried to pronounce something I’ve only read only made the problem worse.

    Everyone lives different lives and we all learn at different points. Mistakes should be a time for learning, not shame.

    This has definitely happened to me. I stopped talking and kept reading.

    I’ve been making these zines for a little over a year now. Here’s #4. I brought 80 copies to SPX this past weekend and gave them to my dear friends. As a bonus I hand-colored all the covers for some bizarre reason

    SPX was wonderful as usual. Congratulations to the Ignatz nominees and winners! I picked up a ton of books & zines, and I’ll enjoy reading them over the next few weeks.

    The first 3 Sex Fantasy zines are tagged here, so you can read them if you missed them the first time around.

    I have a boundless enthusiasm for this series of little comics.
