Of Boobs and Shoes
Have you ever wondered why men always stare at women's chests? It's not a bothersome issue for me, but I have thought about it a couple of times. A woman's chest, I understand, seems to be a very sexual part of the body in the eyes of a man. What I don't understand is that women do not go walking around staring at men's crotches. My friend told me that she learned from one of her Philo classes that the reason behind men sticking their eyes to abundant bosoms is because it is just but a natural inclination for them to do so. They are unknowingly attracted to them because they see the potential of breasts being able to nurture children. This may sound too incredulous, and it is actually unbelievable to think that men find so much time to stare at feminine chests just to affirm that these women can nurture future children. No matter what modern man's reasons are, philosophy claims that this is the basis. But what is my point? From the words of Mr. Jerry Seinfeld, guys just "simply can not not look..."
If guys can't help but look at women's chests, ladies have their own thing that they can not not look at. For a shoe-lover like me, it would not be hard to figure out. Shoes, I believe, are the counterpart for women. Not men's shoes (although sometimes I look at a man's shoes to have a quick judgment of what the guy is like), but women's shoes on their feet. Everywhere I go, I find time to subtly stare at shoes. And when the wearer catches me looking, I look away just like a man pretending not to look when they are caught staring. I don't know the reason for it, maybe it also has a philosophical basis... but I do not care really. All I know is that I, just as Seinfeld said, "simply can not not look..."
