Why don’t I wear heels?
Because I am a man is the wrong answer. I don’t wear heels because
- They are painful and lead long-term damage of my feet
- They are uncomfortable, hard to walk in, clumsy, and slow
- Society does not think men look better in heels
- Society does not think men should subject themselves to a mild form of torture in order to please the opposite sex
Apparently heels make women look prettier. I never really get past “my goodness, isn’t that painful? Why on Earth are you wearing those?” Some women, when I tell them this, say they’ve been wearing heels so long that it’s as easy for them as wearing sandals. I suspect they’re lying. If they’re not, then I wonder at the damage that must have been done to reach that point.
