Too right you are. *Shakes fists*

Footbinding scares the daylights out of me, to be honest.

Lol, then I'll print off a few pictures of bound feet and follow you around with them, Sarah.

I'll admit it, I find foot binding a fascinating subject, as well as any of the older fashions. I remember looking at pictures like those a few years ago and being completely disgusted, but it was acceptable at the time period. They simply had no idea about the effects. I find them comparable to corsets since now it is known that corsets actually caused internal damage and I believe they made the birthing process even more difficult due to rearranged organs, which is partially why many women ended up dying during it.

Anyways, I didn't really look over the links, but I think I remember part of the process occasionally involving actually breaking the foot. Not too sure on that information, but I think it might've occured with older girls whose families waited too long to have it done.

It did; plus sometimes the little toes all fell off due to the process. The idea was that the feet be not stands for the body but extentions to the legs. According to what I read, the fashion started after an imperial concubine danced for her prince with her feet bound. Tho to me, there's a huge difference to dancing with feet bound to mutilating feet. O_o
