Sorry, you’re just tap dancing with that. Society didnt “demand” it of women until the late 19th century, with the advent of the hourglass figure. Before that, it was all about making the hips look big, as a sign of fertility… which IMHO is just as silly as high heels, but whatever. Bottom line, tho: That’s a bit of a haul from the medieval days of the codpiece. We dropped it, and you ladies picked it up and ran with it.
As for moving around for an hour in high heels… well, I’ll bite. Why do you ladies do it if it’s so damn uncomfortable? Are you that willing to give in to peer pressure for the sake of some strange concept of beauty? It just doesnt make any sense, sorry. Of course, most of what passes for women’s fashion these days doesnt make any sense, but that’s another story for another time.
