This was a status update by incredible blogger Aliza Hausman. Unfortunately this was not the first I had heard of this idea this week. I have had a couple of interactions recently with Jewish female bloggers on this subject. Some rabbanim have felt that it draws too much attention and is not to be encouraged. Especially in single female bloggers who are dating. Being a public figure is apparently against the tenets of Judaism and modesty unless you are a Rabbi.
How stupid of me to forget! Us women are supposed to be quiet and hide behind our men, and only speak when spoken to. And if we don’t have men to hide behind? Use a tree, something, so that women should never be seen, let alone be heard to have opinions.
Yes there are JBlogs out there that talk about taboo subjects and are sensationalist etc. But there are some awesome quality JBlogs writen by some phenomenal female members of the Tribe. The world is so much better for these blogs. I have learned a tremendous amount from these women, and come to a much deeper understanding of myself through the blogging medium. If I have learned from them, I am sure many others have too.
I am a Jewish female blogger and I stand tall and proud. Who is with me???!!!
Soon breathing won’t be tznius….what will they think of next??!!
