Chinese Foot Binding: What's Your Opinion?

Small feet were more desirable. I suppose that's still carrying on today. I hear lots of girls complaining that they wish they had size 4 or 5 feet instead of size 9. A weird thing to complain about, in my mind, but whatever floats their boat.

Also, apparently, binding a woman's feet meant she had high status or was rich for a while. That is, until it became a fad and everyone wanted to do it.

If a woman wanted to marry into money, she had better have her feet bound! It also apparently made her a bit helpless and less likely to be in power. It made a man necessary for her to be taken care of, and therefore she would always be loyal.

It was a painful process, and some researchers say that it immobilized the woman, but 70 and 80 year-olds were found who could still climb up mountains and work in the rice fields after the process. It causes a lot of health problems like gangrene and fungus. Also, the toe nail would keep growing. It would grow into the skin causing an infection and making a very bad odor.

But they found it pretty? Perhaps it is like plucking our hairs, wanting to be skinny, wanting bigger boobs, dying our hair, etc? I don't think I'd be willing to go that far to be considered pretty... but I'm not a Chinese woman in the 10th century in the Sung dynasty. I'm sure there are still people in the world that find this to be beautiful, but who am I to judge what is beautiful, right?

Would we find this beautiful if every girl in the world started doing it? What's your opinion of Chinese foot binding?

Another form of self-mutilation

It was also meant to keep a woman immobile, ie, at home...under the thumb of a man. Very sad.
