I just wanted to vent here. For as long as I have been able to walk, I have walked like a duck. I have duck feet which is like the opposite of pigeon feet. When I walk, my toes point to the sides rather than towards the front.
For many years now, my gait has been an object of contention between my mother and I. My mother says that the way that I walk is "manly" and it is unattractive. I have always said that no one pays attention to the way that my feet face when I walk and that if someone is going to find me unattractive because of my duck feet, then I don't really care to know this person!
When I was a teen she wanted to put me into leg braces, a la Forrest Gump, to correct the way that I walk. I'm now 26 and my mom is still harping to me about this?!?! Is it really that bad that my feet point out when I walk?!?!?
