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.’ ”

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.
