comment Could Mashiach be a Woman?
I have edited your answer to make it a little bit clearer, in my opinion. But I think you might have missed an opportunity to argue more strongly that this actually is an explicit answer. A woman cannot be crowned king. Period. That's what the question is asking. Done.

A little clearer, imho.

revised Daf Yomi and a half-Daf
I hope I made my question better. There's nothing wrong with the answers, but I'm not sure this question is getting enough attention, and it could be that it was unclear.

comment What is the unique energy of Tishrei that corresponds to Sukkot?
@AKayser, I cannot open the link. I'll try again later, but in the meantime, does my edit work for your purposes? It makes more sense to me this way, but I'm not familiar with your premise, so I can't be sure.

comment What is the unique energy of Tishrei that corresponds to Sukkot?
I think the question needs to be reframed as, "What is the unique energy of Tishrei that corresponds to Sukkoth?" This way, those who know what you're talking about will be drawn to the question, and those who don't won't be confused by it. I'm making the appropriate edit; feel free to revert if you disagree, but please understand that the question as written is currently very confusing to the point of being almost irrelevant - if not unanswerable.

comment Self Fulfilling Prophecy
This does not seem to answer the question. It's speculative at best, and tangentially related only if the speculation is correct. Furthermore, foreshadowing is not the same as self-fulfilling.

Maybe because they were not kept and raised domestically?

comment Self Fulfilling Prophecy
It's not clear what you mean by self-fulfilling prophecy. You seem to mean generating the fulfillment of a prophecy. But that's not usually what the phrase means. Also, your opinions about Lubavitch/ Shabbetai Tzvi, or some future crazy person seem unrelated to the substance of the question (though I see how they spurred your question). Consider editing them out.

revised “If there's no Hadran there's no meat”?
This question underwent several revisions based on comments that no longer appear. This revision should make the question more relevant and universally applicable.

comment Why does the Torah sometimes refer to Shabbat as a masculine noun and other times as a feminine noun?
I think the masculine ones are referring to "Yom Shabbath" (even if only implicitly). This is at least evident in the example you cited ("but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day...").

comment Rashi's Daughters wearing Tefillin
In addition to @DoubleAA's request, I'd like some substantiation of the claim that women in Rashi's time did those other activities. Back it up, and I'll likely accept this as the best answer (so far).
