Standing at 5’7 in my socks, I am a fearsome sight to behold when I wear heels.
I’m ashamed that the thought “If I marry a short guy, I can’t wear heels on my wedding day” has actually gone through my mind. Part of it is that I’m a tall, broad-shouldered person.
I don’t think any of the guys in my Montana hometown are going to start wearing stilettos, but maybe this trend will trickle down until mens’ shoes in the mall will have a little extra lift, which would solve a lot of my problems.
But at what point do we draw the line between our political/social views and what we prefer sexually?
But maybe my issue with shorter guys is that I’ve internalized the idea that I am threatening.
