    Eeek, these are not the first photos of deformed bound feet I've seen, but it never fails to freak me out.

    the things people do to themselves *shakes head*

    From what I've read it was a status symbol, like you could afford to take care of a wife who was not capable of working. Also, a sexual thing.

    I read a book a few years ago called, "Snowflower and the Secret Fan" where the main female characters had their feet bound. Basically that book implied that the wealthy men would be immensely turned on by the tiny "lotus flower" feet. The book did describe how for the women with bound feet they were basically helpless and couldn't move around too much, just shuffle from place to place. It sounds horrific to me.

    Oh man, I'd have been burnt at the stake in 6th century china, with my big (us) size 10 feet!

    I can't contemplate doing that to a child. Thank god I grew up in the Dr.Marten generation, that's what I say.
