In Taiwan, there is a church. It is 55 feet tall, 36 feet wide, made of 320 pieces of glass, and looks like a giant high-heeled shoe. Cinderella’s glass slipper, say, but blue.
Now I know what you are thinking. If you are a woman, you are thinking: I must go to this church! (If you are a man, you already already have a church.) And yes, you must go to this church if you are a woman, because fashion. Because, no matter painful and literally harmful beauty norms, the church is pretty and reminds you of shoes. And all is as it should be, because this church was indeed designed for women.
Things we know about this church:
- It will include “a total of 100 female-oriented features … among which 71 have been finished.”
- Said “female-oriented features” include “chairs for ‘lovers,’ maple leaves, biscuits and cakes – all ideal for romantic photographs.”
Things we know about women (and only women):
- They cannot resist maple leaves. They live for romantic photographs.
Things we don’t know about this church:
- What religion or type of worship it is for.
But no matter. Because it is for women.
