Foot Binding

Foot binding was a custom practiced on young females for approximately one thousand years in China, beginning in the 10th century and ending in the early 20th century.

In Chinese foot binding, young girls’ feet, usually at age 6 but often earlier, were wrapped in tight bandages so that they could not grow and develop normally; they would, instead, break and become highly deformed, not growing past 4-6 inches. As the girl reached adulthood, her feet would remain small and dysfunctional, prone to infection, paralysis, and muscular atrophy.

When I read about it in books, it sounds strange and unkind... when I see it in person, I am shocked and appalled!

Even though i believe its wrong and stupid and ugly and creepy, you really cant blame all theese people for binding their feet.

People get their eye brows waxed their pubic hair lazored off,become bulmic, and annorexic just because thats what they think they need to do inorder to be beautiful.

To the comments that are saying these people are "morons"..
do research on the Chinese.
It is part of their culture.. and it helped make them what they are today. In modern day, finding someone with "lily foot" is extremely rare.
Think of it this way.. In 30 years, people will think of our generations as "psychotic" for inserting silicon pouches into our breasts in order to make them larger and "sexier".
