I thinking breast implants are a better analogy. High heels can be worn sparingly and then the body isnt distorted…they are unlikely to kill you either. Lots of women died from foot-binding and lots are mutilated by implants…A part of the body is chosen and magnified/ shrunk using pain to create a completely artificial shape. And like foot-binding, it can win you attention that translates to an easy life. But I personally think foot-binding is a work of art and implants are cheap and hideous, but that’s only my opinion.
