High Heeled Shoe-Shaped Church Hopes To Attract Female Worshippers, Attracts Lots Of Gender Stereotyping Instead
A seaside town in Taiwan has just finished work on a giant high-heeled shoe-shaped church, built in hopes of attracting lady worshippers. Yes, you read that right: A full-sized church, shaped like a high-heeled shoe. Imagine Cinderella’s glass slipper, only massive and full of people. The structure, 55 feet tall and 36 feet wide, is made of 320 planes of blue-tinted glass, sports a sassy silver heel, and would look great with both business casual looks and flirty cocktail dresses for a night on the town. It’s the ultimate shoe-church for the modern woman on the go!
Ahem. Women who are interested in worshipping at the altar of a giant shoe can find the church on the east coast of Taiwan, in Ocean View Park in Budai town. In an interview with Huanqiu.com, Zheng Rongfeng, spokesman of the Southwest Coast National Scenic Area, said that the church will have 100 features designed to attract women, 71 of which have already been completed. These features will include irresistible (to us ladiez) amenities like “chairs for lovers, maple leaves, biscuits and cakes.” The church took over two months to build and is set to open on the Lunar New Year (February 8).
It’s unclear at this point what religion the church is intended to celebrate, but, whatever it may be, there’s nothing to ignite religious fervor in a female like a giant shoe, amirite? Because, you know, WOMEN. Next, we’ll be seeing cathedrals with lipstick-shaped bell towers and stained glass windows depicting hallowed scenes from Sex in the City. Super cute, right?
