Science Fundamentalism...is exactly what happens when there’s a significant, perceived ideological threat to one’s traditions and identity.

Women wear high heels because it makes them look good. They do not need any guy pressuring them to want that!

High heels change your entire posture by forcing your weight onto your toes. The imbalance causes you to compensate by:
• contracting the muscles in your legs, which makes them look firm and toned
• contracting the muscles in your abdomen, which makes you appear thinner
• contracting the muscles in your buttocks, which makes them to appear tighter
• keeping your shoulders back, your chest lifted, and your lower back arched, which makes your boobs look better
Plus, high heels obviously make you taller, which makes your legs look longer and changes your weight/height ratio.

Try walking around on tiptoe for an hour, and you'll understand why many women eschew high heels. I've always loved high heels because I'm short, but I rarely wear them nowadays because the above mentioned things generally cause me to flare.

Most women wear heels (and makeup and flattering clothing and hair color) for themselves, not for men. At least, most women I know. We tend to have more confidence when we know we look good, which is probably partially personal and partially societal, since we know we're often judged by our appearance...both by men and by other women.

I'll run errands without makeup, wearing yoga pants, sneakers, and a hoodie, but I wouldn't go out for the evening like that. However, I do draw a line; I'm not spending a damn hour painting my face. The contouring craze is insane.
