    Its clickbait title. You seem way too triggered about it.
    Your problem is that you’re more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.

    Maybe a rodeo cowboy, but most ranchers and their hands? I really doubt it. Besides: I'm not a cowboy but these are the best god damn work boots you could possibly have. If any of you guys work outdoors I cannot more strongly recommend a good pair of Wolverine, or Redman cowboy work boots. Hundred bucks will last you like 10 years. Just dont tuck your pants into them unless you're wading into water or mud. You'll look like a tool.

    You being wrong doesn't change what I said I used to be very involved in that 'world' if you will. Heels matter. A lot.

    Just a wild guess here -- but I assume the heel helps a whole lot with getting onto a horse?

    According to wiki, the heel helps/helped prevent their foot from slipping through the stirrup and getting stuck (and potentially dragged to death) if they're thrown from the saddle.

    Well... I guess I should stop wearing my shoes... because well, they're "high heels"

    In all seriousness... the things which trigger people...
    Camilla: You, sir, should unmask.
    Stranger: Indeed?
    Cassilda: Indeed, it's time. We have all laid aside disguise but you.
    Stranger: I wear no mask.
    Camilla: (Terrified, aside to Cassilda.) No mask? No mask!

    Identical reason why a defined heel is required for train crew employees. So they don't get stuck and dragged behind the car they're riding on.

    Thanks for the response.

    People don't know mens dress shoes if they didn't know the heeled shoes were a thing.

    I'm wrong that Cowboy style boots have a heel? or that they're called boots? what was the point you wanted to make? Do real cowboys worth their salt call them Cowboy heels, because that'll be a first for me.

    Heels along with leggings were originally men's fashion 400+ years ago.

    While it keeps me busy from all the women clientele seeking relief from their lower back pain. Heels are brutal on the feet, hips and spine.
    With that said, I still think heels are quite possibly one of the worst fashion inventions we ever created.

    what about those metal cages women used to wear to give their dresses that fucked up bulbous shape? Those things seem like torture devices.

    I mean, haven't men worn heels historically? Those old British shoes had heels, cowboy boots and biker boots have heels. Some dress shoes have heels. In fact I never noticed it but my dress shoes have heels.

    I would have to say that corsets are even worse, while of course heals would do a number on the back feet and so on, they did not redistribute and possibly damage the internal organs, while making it hard to breathe all in the name of an over the top hourglass figure..

    Oh yeah, good point. Corsets are worse by leaps and bounds.

    I think bound feet takes the cake.

    You will see a lot of shorter actors wearing kind of those raised shoes to appear taller.

    Yeah, I remember a couple years back when folks got triggered and started mocking Marco Rubio for his heels. Personally I would side with @Celista, I've heard heels aren't the best thing for anyone, health/joint-wise. That said, it doesn't bother me when folks where heels. Andre the Giant wore heels. I worked with a woman who was probably 6'1 or so naturally who liked wearing 3+ inch heels. Cowboy boots have had heels since forever. So it's not a "short person" thing. There are folks of all heights who like to feel taller. I wouldn't bother to get bothered by it. If you want to walk on stilts so you can feel eight feet tall, meh, whatever makes you feel good.

    The sooner people realize that these kinds of articles have such sensationalist titles to get exactly this response, the better so we can stop seeing posts like this from people on MMO-C too gullible or too oblivious to understand the concept of attention-grabbing headlines.

    You shared it, you gave them exactly what they wanted. There isn't some insidious plan to feminize men, there's an insidious plan to get clicks from people like you.
