Main Question or Discussion Point

Yes, this is for real. I want to settle a bet.

I get teased about my big toes, which are (as seems logical to me), big i.e. my big toes are bigger than my other toes - they stick out farther. If I kicked a wall barefoot, my big toe would hit first.

Some people's big toes do not stick out as far as their other toes, namely, my tormentor's. If she kicked a wall, her second toe would hit first.

My toes look like this: http://www.footpatrol.org/tapep.jpg.
My tormentor's toes look like this:http://www.footpatrol.org/tapea.jpg.

I want to prove I'm not a mutant. :smile:

(Disclaimer: I Googled the samples. I make no claim whatsoever to any association with the website they came from.)

So, see poll, above.

You're normal, your tormentor is weird (but so am I).

There's no option for my toes. :frown: My big toe and the toe right next to it are pretty much the same length, then all the rest get smaller. It's one of the reasons I can't wear pointy-toed shoes.

If I cut off the end joint of my second toe they would look like the first photo. I wear out socks with a quickness.

My feet are exactly the same. Are we long lost cousins?

My big toe is just barely larger. That person, the one with the smaller big toe, has some pointy feet/toes. Almost like, as mb somewhat said, they wear pointy shoes often. One question, could this be related to gender?

What we need is toe pictures.
I'll send mine in tomorrow if not too many people complain.

Sample A is like my toes.

Sample B is a freak of nature.

Nah, it's not a gender thing. Both are normal. We're all mutants in one way or another, and both of those examples are typical variations in toe length.

I hope not, otherwise we'd have to move to Alabama before I could marry you. :tongue2: :rofl:

Well, my left foot wouldn't freak anyone out. My big toe on my right foot is still growing out the toenail from when I dropped that pallet on it back in December, so it's definitely not an attractive looking toe right now.

I'd love to see that extra toe on Ivan's digging foot though. :rofl:

Of course the big toes stick farther out than the others.

Please submit a sample photo so I may add it to my fetish(ahem) I mean extremely scientific study I'm doing on the length of human female toes.

Note: Photo MUST be immediately post-pedicure and nails must bear bright red pigmentation.

Note to self: Try harder not to come off sounding like Artie Johnson's charachter from Laugh In.

Go Big Toes, go!

Maybe for some people, the big toe shrinks from kicking the wall too much. I suggest an experiment to verify this. Everyone must go kick a wall right now!

My big toes do not stick out as far as my other toes.
There is a catagory missing: my big toe sticks out AS far as the toe next to it (me): the normal catagory :tongue:

No; that's a semi-atavism.
