I meant things like tattoos, piercings, etc. That's what I'm not into.
Tattoos can be mostly removed nowadays, and except the most extreme stuff like stretching and flesh tunnels, most piercings will heal with minimal or no scar.

For about 7000 years, on the job footwear consisted of mid-calf to knee-high boots for men
I doubt it, since boots are at most 3000 years old.

Some time in the last 200 years, women appropriated the tall boot as a fashion statement, and men were forced to rely on ankle-length laced boots. Today, women wear tall boots sometimes daily, with some women having enough pairs to go a week or more without wearing the same pair twice, but if a man wears tall boots, he either must be in some kind of costume, even if its a competition costume, say dressage, or gay and looking for some action. Men, it seems, are not allowed to wear the tall boots that used to define a man who worked hard out of doors.

My question is, how did this happen?
I don't know, but I weep for the poor men who are stripped of their god-given right to wear boots.
