Wish, I could report that this is a joke. Alas, its real. The editors of Binah --yes BINAH, as in "understanding" -- have convened a group of experts to ponder the question: "Are we teaching our girls too much?"
I don't even understand how the question starts. How can you ever have too much knowledge? Actually, I lied. I do understand how the question starts. Someone can have too much knowledge if you wish to control him, if you wish to keep him in his place. Less educated people have less power and are easier to dominate. It's why educating slaves was illegal in the antebellum South. If you're concerned your daughters are getting too smart, what you are really concerned about is protecting the patriarchy.
Anyway, on with the sarcastic Tweets:
Women are on such a high holy level they don't need to learn anything! (except recipes, I mean)
Debate? I bet it's "yes, they are learning too much. This is bad!" vs "yes its bad but we have no choice"
Of course we're teaching them too much! Some of them can read and do simple computations. This is an outrage!
It was a big scandal when black people started learning too much, too. "Master" somethings debated that as well!
The girl in cover picture appears 2 know how wdress herself in a manner befitting a bas yisroel. She needs school?
... and check out the sub heads. How r women homeschooling and entering workforce if they aren't educated? Morons.
it's obvious to me were teaching them too much. Too many women think they are too smart to make me dinner
Thanks to Akiva for the picture and OMTorah for the story. Tweets are all mine.
