comment Is there a problem with women wearing red clothing?
... and Rabbi Moshe Feinstein made it clear that if the non-Jews wore red and the Jews clearly didn't, then an attempt to emulate them in such a flashy way would be problematic. He then wrote that the American clothing of the 1950s had no such "Jewish" vs "non-Jewish" distinction. Some clothing was inappropriate because it was simply inappropriate, but nothing "non-Jewish" per se.

comment Does the Torah ever mention jail as a punishment for a crime?
Rambam writes that if someone commits murder in a way that isn't technically liable to the death penalty (e.g. he calls a hit man), the courts are entitled -- and expected -- to imprison him.

comment Why do women and girls not immerse before prayer?
@Arach I haven't seen that Tosfos YomTov but that sounds quite weird. Tevilas Ezra was instituted out of concern that Torah scholars would spend so much time with their wives that they wouldn't be able to study enough. (That's R' Aharon Lichtenstein's explanation, shlita; he's rejecting the asceticism approach.) That very much sounds like it's just for men.
