Modesty in Ultra-Orthodox Brooklyn Is Enforced by Secret Squads


The Brooklyn shopkeeper was already home for the night when her phone rang: a man who said he was from a neighborhood “modesty committee” was concerned that the mannequins in her store’s window, used to display women’s clothing, might inadvertently arouse passing men and boys.
“The man said, ‘Do the neighborhood a favor and take it out of the window,’ ” the store’s manager recalled. “ ‘We’re trying to safeguard our community.’ ”

1. Yes, even we Jews have fundies

Makes me glad I'm not one (currently in a Conservative shul).

2. There are fundies in EVERY religion

And you can't tell them apart from their attitudes.

3. And they ought to be ashamed of themselves

Fear and intimidation is fear and intimidation - and if men are becoming sexually aroused in their community by mannequins then they need f*cking therapy.

Don't ask me to turn my cheek to this - and get on France for outlawing burquas.
Don't ask me to ignore this and condemn Westboro Baptist.
Don't ask me to be tolerant of this - yet despise John Hagee.

I do not want anymore religion this and religion that bullshit being used to bully ANYONE in America.

And that is a community of bullies.

4. A Brooklyn butcher got a call about the bacon in his window.

J/K I mean, that would be going too far.
