Men don heels to heighten awareness
Chicago Tribune ^ | May 13, 2013 | Bridget Doyle

Posted on 05/12/2013 3:44:23 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

More than 20 men — all Chicago lawyers — will slip into stilettos and parade around the Loop on Tuesday in an effort to raise awareness about violence against women.

The Chicago Bar Association's Young Lawyers Section is hosting its first Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event with Between Friends, a local nonprofit geared toward ending domestic abuse.

The men will walk one mile in their choice of stilettos to draw attention to the bar association's effort to curb violence against women.

"...all Chicago lawyers..."

They're probably used to wearing high heals already.

What exactly do heels have to do with violence against women?

If you really want to do something about violence against women, arm them.

Be prepared for the 2016 election cycle especially if Princess Hillary or Dizzie Miss Lizzie are nominated. It will be non-stop: men are vile pigs.

"We figured if we wanted people to talk about violence against women, what better way than men wearing high heels around the Loop?" said Natacha McClain...
Makes no sense at all.

If Natacha is guilty, she shouldn't plan on a BJ Clinton post-POTUS pardon.

lawyers?...four will sprain their ankles and six will sue, another three will claim PTSD because of all the screaming like little girls cause them to permanently lose a certain frequency associated with the sound a cash register makes thus eliminating their ability to over charge their clients.

High heels is violence against women? I have heard comlaints about sore leg muscles but it is, after all, voluntary .

Try to walk a mile in those shoes and you’ll see what pain really is, and for hours after the shoes are taken off. Women wear them to look sexy and attract men. It’s the Western equivalence of foot-binding. And it’s self-inflected.

Clinton's removal from office would have made a more significant impact than parading a bunch of wussified, pansy-@ssed "men" not quite open about being on the down-low...

They don’t give a crap about women.

They want to organize the homo lawyer network so they can advance their homosickual agenda through the so-called “Justice System”.

It’s all about power and control. Meanwhile everyone else is home watching TV (Which the homos already control).

If you read the NY Post, almost every single day they have a story of a woman raped in New york city. I wonder if Bloomberg realizes that. I read one the other day, a woman waiting at a bus stop and the POS dragged her into an alley at knife point. It’s open season because they know the women can’t defend themselves all because of this POS named Bloomberg who waltzes around town with a phalanx of armed bodyguards.

Bloomberg’s the guy who says it’s ok for a 14 yr old to have a plan B pill as long as she doesn’t wash it down with a 32 oz soda or smoke a cig after having sex.

“Women wear them to look sexy”, that’s what I will never understand...90% of men think 90% of women are sexy no matter what they are wearing. I truly think women do this stuff to imress other women (not in a gay way).

When I visited Wash DC last spring (where America’s elites labor) I noticed a LOT of $400 shoes, $400 dresses, and $1000 handbags. And $1000 suits and $400 shoes on men also.

"seriously is there anyone who isn’t aware?"

Wearing heels will make their addled brains farther from the walking surface, hence raised.
