From The Shocking Dept: Men Found Something Else About Which To Boss Women Around

Britain’s Trade Union Congress has proposed a ban on high heels for women in the workplace, claiming they’re sexist and pose a health and safety hazard.

How a shoe (solidly inanimate object, last we checked) can behave in a sexist manner, we know not.  Let’s instead address the predominantly male TUC’s seeming concern regarding women’s well-being.  How many women do you know who can’t make a decision about their own footwear?  I don’t know any, but to be proposing this rule in the first place, it seems the TUC must think working women (women who have jobs, women who are in theory equal to the male counterparts comprising the bulk of the TUC) go to the closet every morning, stare at its contents, get confused about which shoe might give them a bunion, and then cry for rules to help them figure out what’s best for their own health and well-being.

In addition to citing heels as a safety hazard, the TUC denounces the shoes as demeaning.  What do you think is demeaning in this situation?  Please tell us in the comments; we’d really like to know.

As you might be able to guess, we like our high heels – wedges, platforms, whatever. And if we like them, we’ll wear them – but we do understand just as well the need for shoes you can more easily walk in.
