Default Re: Looking for betas?

I'm just wondering if perhaps maybe Raul's doing the "Chinese bound feet" syndrome - could explain it as such and get away with it. Torturous and extremely cruel as it was to Chinese women, it was a fact of life up until recently that women had their feet bound so tightly, simply because it was considered fashionable at the time. Like many other things, people didn't consider it to be torture although we now know it was and still is. Me personally, I wouldn't intentionally go out and do that to someone, regardless of what the majority have to say about it. I like my hoofers the way they are but it's possible to explain the hooves and get away with it if using alternative shoes.
