Heartcore for a new and more inclusive normal

The interesting, quick and unexpected read of today: The history of high heels.

Reason 1: It’s always interesting how definitions of masculinity and femininity shifts through the acquiring of certain qualities of behavioral or material nature. The fight for pertaining integrity and the power to define one’s domination of either gender or class.

Reason 2: The identifying of the elite and the qualities one “must” internalize to be part of it, is interesting. How the distinction is made, for which reasons etc. are telling of the societal context. The need for distinction from other groups, the fight for the right to be a certain identity is interesting as well. The most contemporary one is defining and identifying the Hipster, which I think is endlessly interesting.
