    Was my post deleted? If so, why?

    Yes. Please try to keep your posts a more manageable length. Thank you.

    When you layer chumrah on chumrah, at some point you discourage those who want to comply with the spirit of tzinus, (and ultimately for many other mitzvos) from making the effort since it seems so difficult or hopeless from their initial perspective. Yes, being compliant with mitzvos was not meant to be “easy” but nor was it brought down by chazal that we should use every opportunity to make it more difficult than otherwise necessary.

    @YW Moderator 29: I hate when that happens 🙁 I appreciate it though.

    Gadolhadorah: Exactly, but it’s not about easy or hard. It’s about doing the right thing with the right intentions. We often lack the latter.

    Wow!!! 🗨️⛱️

    Of course Mod-29 has reshus!
    -The person is totally anonymous.
    -We don’t know where this is.
    -It’s in a public place.
    -It can be used as an example that a bubble umbrella can totally be tznius in the right context!

    Well done Mod-29 🙂

    To LU and lightbrite: If (i) you don’t know about impressment, (ii) you live in America, and (iii) you are over the age of 14, then there is something missing from your education. The War of 1812 was fought in part over the impressment of US citizens by the British Navy.

    Wait what’s going on?

    Was Kotlorism asking about Mod-29’s umbrella in the rain photo or whatever link is on his page?

    huju: Say what? Is that umbrella guy being taken for the military as we speak?

    Meno: Do you see any tznius problems here with this lone person dressed in a dark color standing in the rain?

    LB- I don’t think we can tell much from this photo. First of all, we don’t have a clear view of the person. Second of all, that wouldn’t be enough, because we would have to be able to see how they look in their surroundings, since the issue is about whether or not they stand out. I don’t know if that’s something that one can see in any photo, but we certainly can’t see it here.

    I’m also surprised by your comment. I had no idea what a bubble umbrella looked like before, but you did, and you thought they were untznius. If you already knew what they looked like, what did you gain from seeing this photo, and how did it make you change your mind?

    Disclaimer: I am not trying to imply that they are untznius. I have no idea, since I have never seen one in real life (although my guess is that they are fine). I am just wondering why you are so sure that this photo is a proof that they are.

    How?

    Would a moderator post a picture if it was not tznius?

    The way they look in their surroundings is blurry too.

    There’s a difference between let’s say a young lady wearing pink and white (just made that up and both colors may be easier to see on a rainy day outside) using one in a crowded place where everyone else is using a masking dark umbrella and a person/maybe-a-guy dressed from head to toe, or something dark and covered-looking, who doesn’t seem to be in a crowd but rather just standing waiting for the bus.

    and you would have to see them around other people and see if they stand out in the crowd. I don’t think there’s any way to see that in a picture.

    I can’t imagine he is planning to spend the whole day there. And I still don’t think you can tell much from this photo.

    You can’t even tell if that’s a human.

    Could be a gorilla with a clear trash bag over his head.

    Would that be tznius?

    #1274180

    I wouldn’t call him a gorilla per se, although he could certainly use a shave and haircut.
