Attn Girls: If your hair reaches to the midback where your bra strap is you can be kicked out of school

with 4 comments

So, talking with a fellow blogger/writer/and forum poster and they told us a story about a school where the tznius code is so strict that if a girl has her hair long enough to reach where those clips are on the bra in the back she can be expelled from school.

Now we sat there, mouths opened, in utter shock to that statement. We understand low cut shirts, slits, tight tight clothing that bring memories of a fake Rivky does Flatbush video (see previous tznius posts by us) and we were wondering…well this is just another example of how extreme thing have become with our fellow Jews.

Is it not enough to condemn other Jews because of their mode of dress, the shul they go to, the Rav they go to, and even the school they go to…but now you are going to be expelling girls from a school because their hair is too short?

It reminds us of another story of girls purposely straightening their hair out every week because good BY girls had straight hair or else they might be in trouble or not get a shidduch in life.

*SIGH*

Can we please wake up with that eye opening coffee and actually see the fact that our chumras and our personal beliefs as to what is right and what is wrong are so unbelievably tainted in our communities now a days that we are going down the hill with a very steep incline?

  1. Thank you for yet another addition to my huge list of chumras and bans I think the charedim will think of next- hilarious and yet sad. Why dont they just make them shave their heads and wear training turbans- since in just a few years thats what they will be wearing.
