the only reason why late 19th century chinese women had to bound their feet was only because an emperor saw a gorgeous woman and how she had tiny feet and admired it so much that he practically made small feet a must for women all over china to bound their feet and do the same. i would say he had a foot fetish...
of course, through out chinese history, women didnt have to bound their feet like that of late 19th century women.
