I am HORRIFIED!
Look, on the whole, I am really very accepting of other cultures. I'm a live and let live kind of girl. But today, in my inbox, I received an email which included some pictures that have been burned into my retina. I can't escape the feelings that the images evoke. See what you think...


This, it seems, is an old geisha.


Here, she is unwrapping her foot.

Her foot is now unwrapped.

OMG!


You can't tell me that this didn't hurt. I refuse to believe it! This, for fashion! Do you see? She has developed a hoof! And her toes have curled around her foot. And, I've heard of toe cleavage, but that right there is something else entirely. That's...foot chasm.

Please let this be a hoax. Let it be a photoshop. Please don't let this little old woman have gone through this!

That is actually not for fashion. It is cultural. Women with tiny feet were revered. It distinguished them as royalty to be pampered and doted upon.

It is an ancient practice, although barbaric in my mind.
