Sometimes a shoe is just a shoe

This comes off as one part Freud, two parts fraud:

Keep in mind peep toes aren’t toe cleavage, that’s a low vamp. No, the peep-toe slit (or hole) is a straight-up Vajayjay reference. Maybe [Cindy McCain and Sarah Palin] keep choosing the peep-toe slits to remind all the retrograde conservatives that although they have powerful roles, they are still the submissive second sex.

Maybe you’ve been chewing on the far end of your Birkenstocks, honey.

    Good lord. This sort of thing is why I throw up my hands about fashion (and about some branches of feminism). I have enough issues with feeling that I’m being “judged” on my behavior, the state of my lawn, etc. etc. Now thinking that my shoes might be some kind of semiotic for sexual organs….it’s enough to make one want to go over to the burqa. Or become a hermit and never leave the house.

    I am disturbed that someone could say “vajayjay” with a straight face.

    The thing about it that makes me scratch my head in disbelief is that in my conservative, traditional life, it’s the supposedly “submissive second sex” who decides when I get to have any.

    8) architects as conceived by Ayn Rand
    A what, you brain-dead pretensious piece of coked-up ignorant garbage?

    No, I need to get another latte – delivered by the virtues of capitalism, you pinko crap! – or I wouldn’t be able to return to my very flawed (in compensation department) architectural practice.

    On a subject of peep-toed shoes: hate them, as said before. They make woman’s toes seem prematurely osteoporosis-crooked. Nothing to do with pseudo-psychological nonsense.
