    Questions For Women

    This thread is for questions about women that have plagued men throughout history.

    One for me is why on Earth do women wear high heels? I haven't looked it up but there must be long term physical problems and accidents.

    I have no idea why other women wear high heels. I wore them infrequently when I was very young. I guess they were considered sexy or feminine or something, but I hate them. I hate the way they look and they aren't comfortable, although I did know a woman who wore them until she was in her 70s. She loved wearing them, and I don't think she ever had any foot problems.

    On second thought, I suppose high heels could be used as a weapon. Think how much it would hurt if a woman kicked you in the nuts with her high heels!

    I also hate skirts, and dresses, so don't bother asking us why we wear them. I wear skinny jeans with a cotton knit shirt every single day. However, I do love jewelry. I wear jewelry with my jeans. I guess I just like to sparkle a bit. There's some truth to the expression, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend?"

    Next question.....

    But first....why do men wear ties? Are they trying to hang themselves? What's the deal with wearing something around your neck that might strangle you?

    High heels: they make your calves look good, if you have anything to show off in that regard, and are a neat symbol of female subjugation and sexual exploitation, since as noted they aren't exactly running shoes. Men like a woman who looks vulnerable.

    Ties: they're giant symbolic penises that you wear outside your clothes, and the only way men in "business attire" get to potentially wear anything other than dull black and brown.

    In both cases, I think it is silly to assume that an entire "gender" independently chooses what they would liike to wear. We are all trained by our culture to see some things as normal and others not, and it falls to our entire family of orientation, both male and female, to pass down those lessons to us through instruction and example.

    Personally, I think they look good. Well, not all ties look good, but that's because lot of men have a terrible sense of style and/or they're only wearing it to conform to a dress code set by someone else. That's one of the nice things about men's style: the rules are simple, and you only deviate from them when you feel like it.

    Well, unless you're operating a lathe, there's not much risk of that.

    Marilyn vos Savant (real name) is a columnist for Parade magazine, which is an insert in many U.S. Sunday newspapers. In her column she challenges readers with puzzles, and answers readers’ questions. Her claims to fame are two: first, she had at one time the highest recorded IQ of any person ever tested, and second, about twenty years ago she published a solution to the Monty Hall three door problem which garnered thousands of letters from enraged readers, including a number of math teachers, claiming she was wrong.

    Anyway, a reader once posed the following question: “Quoting Sigmund Freud, what is it women want?”

    Her answer: “Quoting Aretha Franklin, R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

    I’ve always liked that answer.

    My understanding is that wearing high heels makes a woman's ass sway more as she walks. I have never attempted to figure out if that is true or not.

    Why do 19 year old college girls in my city wear miniskirts to the bar in December, along with high-heels? Probably the same reason they aren't wearing a parka and boots.

    Why do women have to have about 11 pillows on their bed, when each person needs only 1, or 2 at most? Ladies spend a lot of time arranging these useless, unused pillows on the bed at 8am, then take them all off again at 10pm just prior to going to bed. It makes absolutely zero sense. Think of all the time wasted over a lifetime putting them on the bed, then taking them off a few hours later. And for what? That's time that could have been better spent helping poor people or inventing some new kind of efficient jet fuel that could curb climate change.

    Out of curiosity, why haven't you done those things, if they are so easy to do?
