Shyheels Posted November 25, 2022 Share Posted November 25, 2022 (edited) Mainstream media is not promoting men in heels. Men in heels is either clickbait - with the most bizarre examples being put forth - or else the storylines associated with these articles are praising this new-found supposed gender fluidioty for those in the Alphabet spectrum. They specifically do not include the average guy in the street. It's not an assumption on my part, it is often explicity stated in the articles, extolling how wonderful it is than trans people and the LBGTQ+ crowd are now being able to express themselves. And so it is, but like it or not the average man on the street does not identify with that crowd and the relentless asociation of heels and LBGTQ+ crowd makes it much less likely that the rank-and-file are going to be open to wearing heels themselves. And no, it will not trickle down - any more than trickle-down economics reaches the base. My realioty seems to accord with virtually everybody else's reality in terms of the number of men one encounters in real life who are wearing heels. Vanishingly small. I have travelled much more widely than the average person, to well over 100 countries, and travelled in depth as well - every US state, every Canadian province, nearly every English county, ever Australian state etc. I have never seen a man wearing stilettos and the few times I have seen men wearing heels, it's been chunky heeled boots. THis is not to deny they are out there - but I've been to an awful lot of places around the world and done a lot of people watching, and I'm not seeing any changes in the percentage of heel wearing in real life. If you doubled, tripled, quadrupled the number or percentage of men in heels you would still be left with a tiny fraction of a percent. Or to put it another way, invert it, think of a coach or physio or manager of an NBA team. In their world, people who are seven feet tall are fairly common and met with on adaily or near daily basis. In the real world - the world as lived by the vast majority of the world - seven-footers are extremely rare. I read somewhere once that fewer than one in a million humans attain a height of seven feet. So while no one denies there are seven footers, any more than anyone denies that some men wear heels, you are most unlikely to encounter one in your day to day life.
