yes. Women wrapped their feet to make them smaller because it was a believe that if your feet are too big and not nicely shaped,you can't marry to a good family. So basically, if your feet are like 3 inches long and have a nice triangle shape, no matter how ugly you are, you can marry to a rich man

No. You fucking retard. Women broke their toes, wrapped them UNDER their feet, and walked on them like that so they would have smaller feet, because it was considered an attraction in China well over a few hundred years ago.

Though of course a few of those dumbass Chink's do that shit still in some areas of China.

Why? Because Asians are fucked up like that.


uhm.
thank you for that.
ass.

Don't hold such assumptions to be true. The customs of Asia have no more mystique, lengendary or unknown myths than Europeans like it to be. The practice of foot binding was done in China.

This does not refer to the entire Asian contingent. The term 'Asia' serves in people's imagination to package a nice idea in mind that it encompasses only chinese, indians, thai, etc. That's Southeast Asia. Generalizations often overlook the fact that there are more sub-islands and areas, states, provinces within the entire Asian boundary, and these places have their own tradition, beliefs, practices and ideas.

China has since developed, in terms of technology, economy and science. Even though their area is large, and not all of them have been fully urbanized,( a large percentage of rural areas still, actually) some of China's advances can be compared to and in other cases exceed the standards that of any other modern society. One can also take a look at the history from the past leading to the present to understand more about the so called 'weird customs'. This factor alone would dispell any notion that the entire country lives in their deluded sense of mystery and 'strange' practices, rather feet binding serves as a historical reminder of the Chinese imperial tradition, and it's now more of a scary idea even to the Chinese than it sounds to the outsiders.

Chinese footbinding is pretty real i think, but i doubt that it's practiced anymore, particularly after the cultural revolution and whatnot. I suppose it's sort of similar to when European women used to squeeze themselves into unbearably tight corsets. On a lighter note, relatively proper grammar is an amazing thing.

well there are a lot of strange practices all around the world but the most disturbing to me it clitoridectomy in Africa. I mean culture is culture and there are reasons behind any cultural practice but it's just really disturbing. I had to study it for an entire semester..
