BBC- A 16m-high (55ft) glass church in the shape of a high-heeled shoe has been built in Taiwan, apparently in a bid to attract more women. A huge glass… what? Yes, you read that right: a glass church, shaped just like a vast high-heeled shoe as if lost by a titan Cinderella while racing through the coastal province of Chaiyi. Made out of over 320 tinted glass panels, the shiny blue building measures more than 10m (36ft) wide and cost about T$23m (US$686,000 £477,000). To attract women? This does appear to be the reason behind the design. “There will be 100 female-oriented features in the church like maple leaves, chairs for lovers, biscuits and cakes,” government spokesman Zheng Rongfeng is quoted as saying in local media. 




This seems like a story that’s ripe for people to get their panties in a bunch and say it’s sexist to think that all women like shoes but it’s not gonna be that type of story.  Why?  Because all women do love shoes. All of them. Not 70% of women. Not 80% of women. Not 99.99% of women. 100% of women love shoes. I obviously haven’t met all women but I feel like we all run into a lot of different types of women in our daily lives and all of them have said, “Oh those are cute, where’d you get them?” to another girl at least once.  Every woman does that. Her profession doesn’t matter.  Doesn’t matter if she’s a bartender or a cheerleader or a model or manager of an Arbys or a girl who volunteers for a tree-hugging non-profit. How she looks doesn’t matter. Doesn’t matter if she’s fat or skinny or short or tall.  Women from all walks of life love shoes. That’s why there will be zero pushback about this church. Something isn’t a stereotype if it’s true. Taiwan building a church in the shape of a shoe is like the bit Dave Chappelle does about the guy who knew he was gonna order some chicken. Women are genetically predisposed to love shoes. That church is just Taiwan’s way of playing off that love.  I say well done.
