Seems like everywhere I go, he just has to name-drop, "What would Hot-Chanie (tm) say?" And my latest best friend (also tm, credit to my blog hero, the Renegade Rebbitzen, may she return to blogging soon, bimheira biyameinu. But the point of this was to show that I'm giving CREDIT where credit is due, unlike my non-best-friend, and totally awful actor of the entire Blogosphere DovWeaselie, or DovieWeasel, or whatever his name is. But that's not the point of this.) RaggedyMom, I really feel for her, since this posting is basically because of her.
See, underneath my obviously hot sheitel, is more blonde hair. Yet, RaggedyMom strikes me as a redhead. The following article from Yedioth Achronoth sent to me by an Israeli reader who wishes to remain anonymous (though let's just say he has a rather unique name) really got my goat.
Kosher haredi dress: Nix everything tight or red
Posters hung throughout Bnei Brak urge women to only buy loose-fitting clothes, avoid red colored garbs. Increasingly popular secular fashions worrying rabbis who respond with battle to cover bulges .
The posters call for women to only purchase clothes from the 30 approved stores as these establishments comply with the strict laws and regulations of haredi religion. (Apparently,this was also mentioned on chic-blogger Orthomom's site as well)
So what's a dear like RaggedyMom supposed to do? Dye her hair (and sheitel) techeiles-blue? Perhaps royal mishkan-purple? Get a different sheitel that's not red? How dreadful!RaggedyMom, all I can offer you is my bracha that you and your husband enjoy your red hair. If anyone starts up with you, just let me know.
Hot Chanie can handle almost anyone or anything, let alone a redophobic bully.
