comment women, men, and pants
@Max The answer to your question is presumably that men's spreading their legs is not a suggestive position as the posture isn't reminiscent of intercourse (where a woman's spreading her legs is more...ergonomic).

@YeZ Ummm... the pasuk?!? Even if most people nowadays don't, Rashi knew Yechezkel by heart, presumably.

@YeZ Ok so later writers (who weren't using nekudot) interchanged the ס and ש. So what? Why should that mean the words need to mean the same thing now?

comment women, men, and pants
@YeZ No. That's .פ.ס.ק not .פ.ש.ק.

@YeZ Now THAT would be imprecise. Why would you say something like that?

@Max Opening the feet is how JPS translates it

comment women, men, and pants
@YeZ I am dead serious. Many skirts are highly restrictive about leg movement. And I don't know what is imprecise about the translation. Would you prefer "opening the legs" to "spreading [them]"?

@YeZ They do prevent seeing it, were one to choose to do so. And, actually, yes many skirts do prevent it. That's why you don't see athletes wearing skirts.

Note that pants do not necessitate leg-spreading.

comment Can a woman ever wear a prayer shawl?
"by wearing tzitzis a women is almost denying her special connection" This would only possibly be true if she thought she was obligated like men...

comment Can a woman ever wear a prayer shawl?
"but there [sic] are as strict and well guarded as halachos and laws" This is obviously not true...

comment Aiding what you consider sin but he doesn't
It may be worth clarifying that. Those cases are very likely distinct (at least, in terms of finding an answer, not in terms of the answer itself).

Who really thinks any of the groom's family were home lighting candles at the time...

Do you think the others are poskim who goofed (as everyone does, on occasion) or as poskim who gave an equally correct psak.
