Gil Hoffman: All in Good Fun? Or Just a "Crass" Act?

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Hey, Gil! I don't know which Jewish Universe you grew up in. But, where I grew up, one did not stare at married women and speculate on future parental status. In fact, one did not stare at married women, or at women, or even stare period. It was considered rude, not to mention immodest.

Yeah, I know. YOU didn't do the staring. You're only upset because you "missed the scoop!"

I know you have a kippah hidden back there somewhere. Maybe you should risk the occasional snicker from a goy or a leftist, and pull it forward a bit. It may help keep your attitudes in check. You know, remembering that you are a Jew, and how inappropriate it is to objectify a Bath-Yisrael. (There never seems to be a radical feminist around when you need one, is there?)

Just because the British, and probably even more gossipy than American, press does it with their future King's consort, does not mean that we must follow suit, and do it, too.

In fact, we are not supposed to carry and cherish these silly attitudes from our Western exile, from which we supposedly escaped. We are supposed to get rid of them!
Oh, and pul-eaze do not give me any of that "we're living in the modern era" crap, or that it's all in good fun and MK Hotovely wouldn't care anyway. All of that is irrelevant.

You're not a class act; you're a crass act.
