Hillary edited out of important photo

Those in charge at the ultra-orthodox Hasidic broadsheet, Der Tzitung, apparently believe that protecting the Hasidic Jewish populace from "sexually suggestive" women is more important than honoring copyright laws. The photo of President Obama and his national security team was edited for the broadsheet to exclude Hillary Clinton and another female staffer. (The White House explicitly forbid doctoring the released photo in any way.)

See for yourself: does Hillary look sexually suggestive? That brown suit she's wearing is pretty low cut and provocative, isn't it?


  1. From what I know, Hasidic men are pretty much always supposed to be separate from Hasidic women except immediate family (in worship, socially, etc). I think they view all women as sexually suggestive? I might be wrong, but that is what I remember from my Religious Studies minor.

  2. Yes, you are probably right about that, Katie! I minored in religion too. Kind of seems like they want to erase women altogether, though, when they edit photos like that.
