Newsweek Criticizes Trump Women For ‘Normalizing’ High Heels
If Chelsea Manning or Michelle Obama were wearing them, Newsweek would be calling it “Fabulous!”

Newsweek even consulted a psychologist and an anthropologist to tell us why Melania and Ivana wear high heels: they “just exaggerate the femaleness of the walk. So to deconstruct why Trump women wear high heels: They are just buying into traditional binary views of male and female.”
And that’s bad, because we all know that the traditional binary views of male and female are not currently in fashion.
The anthropologist made sure to note that, “When women wear high heels at work, they send sexual signals that should be avoided if they want to be taken seriously.” Ivanka is a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur. She can’t be taken seriously wearing this?
Newsweek makes sure to point out that “shoe historians say the first women to wear heels were Italian prostitutes” and then to claim with contempt that high heels “signal the taut combination of power and weakness that conservative women must cultivate in order to survive among ideologues who are crafting our tax-free ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ future.”
