- Crazy but True Stories
This story of government funding made it all the way to a USA news website, showing just how bonkers crazy this is.
We wonder if this might be in line for the government to chop the funding of this right down to the flatness of flipflops...
South Thames College in Wandsworth, Tooting and Merton in South London is offering a six week 'Sexy Heels In The City' course for its 16 year old students.
The course aims to 'prepare young women for the business world and their social lives.' Whilst the course is offered as an extracurricular, the school receives government funding for all of its courses meaning that taxpayers have been financing a lesson in high heel walking for teenagers.
Thames College appointed Chyna Whyne, a former backup singer, to teach the course.
Chyna claims her life was made a misery because she wasn't taught how to walk in high heels at a young age. She said: "At some point, girls from the age of 15 upwards will start wanting to wear high heels. The point, if it's going to happen, the earlier younger ladies learn how to walk in heels, the better it's going to be in the long run - with business and social lives. The statistics of women with shoe-related injuries and foot problems are unbelievably high.'"
