On the one hand, I try not to think less of a group of people with a niche kink just because I don't understand it and it has no appeal for me; on the other hand, I'm pretty sure there were multiple posters on the forum who (totally unsolicited) outed themselves as foot fetishists, and all of them were utter and astonishing asshats (see: whatever123).

Cue podiatrist chiming in about how the foot is the most fascinating part of the human body, responsible for walking, running, balancing, &c. with stunning proprioceptive accuracy and consistency.

I remember a few years ago my friend Angela had a rude awakening when she google imaged searched herself and one of the associated image searches (you know how they appear at the top) was "Angela [surname] feet". I guess that's when you know you've made it

-artisan fan: we must lower taxes to lift all boats, it will also resolve the conflict in Iraq and make climate change disappear.
-dalai lama: well don't you think that...
-artisan fan: blablalahrhgghghhg lower taxes, trickle my winkle!!! hghrhghgh!!
-dalai lama: fuck you you stupid fuck, I'm find you whever you are and slit your throat!!!!

to be fair, partisan fan was quite polite himself. it may have been been futile to explain any opposing views to him, but he was civilized and i would rather his repetitive droning than the neocon barbarity that has supplanted him.

i mean, afaik no one i know personally is a foot fetishist, but some of them probably are in the closet about it. virtually every woman i know has scads of stories about foot fetishists they were hit on by or went on a date with (key word being "a").

yeah that's fair enough. you would think as an engineer i could "get" it due to that, but i still don't.

yeah don't me wrong, in general i'm not one to kink-shame and in particular foot fetishism is pretty tame, but i've never had a woman tell me a story about a run-in with a foot fetishist where the dude was mature and respectful about it. virtually every one of them is along the lines of the most recent encounter i was told about:
Quote:
So I went on a date last year with a guy that went to college with me. We met on tinder or something.

Date was going well so I invited him to the other plans I had, not thinking much of it. My friends were projecting cone heads on their house and we bought wine and went over.

So we get to the house and he starts trying to aggressively make out with me, and keeps touching my boots. I shrugged it off because my boots were awesome and I have good style

Anyway: we get pizza later and he comes over and he is like "I really want to massage your feet" and I'm like "get the fuck out of my apartment"

I mean, how am I supposed to dress well while biking to work and being ready to go hiking on a moment's notice? But yes, it's a travesty.

Real talk: there is a fine line between self-deprecating humor and depressing reality, as there is between gentle mockery and outright dismissal. 

Well done then! Fwiw that article had synthese all over it 👍

But... but... chronometer grade movements are accurate to +/- 1 seconds per day... That's 0.001% accuracy for gears powered by a coil. A coil!!!!!!
