Another problem is kol hamosif gorea. When you tell girls they can’t wear denim, although there is not one shred of a halachic source, they start to believe that all tznius is optional as well, and just made up arbitrarily by some grinch who wants to take all the joy out of life.
VERY good point!
The reason is due to insecurity with the way we do things. If we felt secure that what we are doing is correct and meaningful, we wouldn’t care what others do.
“I am all for tznius and I myself am very careful with what I wear. But why is it that the women that are always preaching about are usually a bit unattractive? Why can’t there be someone who is dressed beautifully and tznius at the same time to be an example to the young girls?
I knew someone who was really an example but she tragically passed away. Instead of whining let’s do something and be examples. Wear a nice wig everyday and try to wear it in a reasonable length, dress nicely with tznius, put on makeup and don’t go around looking like a shlump. You be the role model. Shlumpiness isn’t tznius. “
In my neighborhood, the biggest complainers stopped yelling about Tznius as soon as they dropped some serious weight.
What I find quite interesting is that not only do some people not shower on Yom Tov (and for some reason they like to sit next to me in shul), but they also don’t want others to shower as well. Misery loves company?
I may be a minority here, but a Pasuk in Micha should not create such heated discussion.
The problem is due to many marriages that should not have taken place in the first instance.
Squeezing hair – whatever the Chasidim do on Shabbos morning coming out of the Mikva is what you should do.
Bar Soap – Reb Shloimie Zalman Aurbach said it’s “Dava Hamutar Shenuhagu L’assur.” It’s in the footnote to Rabbi Ribiat’s 39 Melochos sefer.
