Funny Plug

(click on image for a better read)

Reader and commenter "Kishmech" sent me this clipping of a hilarious little piece that was in the London Jewish Chronicle about female bloggers. It mentions yours' truly, as well as my pal Renegade Rebbetzin, and the Shomer Negiah blog. The line that still has me cracking up every time I read it:
Orthomom, whose name evokes images of a super-powered sheitl-wearer...

How funny?

It's good we have blogging or else Orthodox women like us would never be able to speak our minds.

Thank God the veil has been lifted we'd been suffering in silence much too long!

Gimme a break.

I think it's great that you and the Rebbitzen are getting well earned press but man... someone needs to get out more.

That's great! It's good to be written about. At least you know your posts are making headlines! Well deserved. -Zoe

I agree Shif, I just thought the "super-powered sheitl-wearer" line was too hysterical not to post...

Veil? I express these opinions at the table. I'm sure that most of the female bloggers do to.

I referred your blog to the writer: I'm sorry if you're offended.

Purple parrot.......she finds it funny and is oddly flattered...does she sound offended to you?

Offended? How so? I am certainly not offended to be included, and I thank you for thinking of me. I know there are some of my fellow female bloggers who have brought up the fact the the writer seems to have implied that blogging is the only way we Orthodox women can get our voices heard from "behind the veil". I don't really think the writer of the piece is using that imagery as anything but a creative literary device, but I respect my fellow bloggers' right to be offended. Fair?

Shifra- I think this article has a point. Having a totally uninhibited voice is a new phenomenon among orthodox women.

Explain to me the great "freedom" that's is the blog. Are you trying to tell us that Orthodox Women are victims of the Taliban or some other terrible regime, and that their only outlet is the internet?
