While I'm on the train of thought of bullies in the Jewish world, let me take a moment to feature "shidduchim bullies."
Just in case people dare to stand against the Talmud Bullies and use some common sense instead of blindly following them, we have the Shidduchim Bullies. These are the women in the community who will tell other women in the community, "if you don't tow the line and do X, your children will never get married." If you use a shopping cart... your kids will never get married. If you wear a tichel instead of a sheitel, your children will never get married. If you don't send your kids to the right summer camp, they will never get married...If you don't use the right white damask table cloth on Shabbos, your kids will never get married.... and so on and so forth. Never mind the fact that they could marry the children of other parents who have enough brain to think critically. The fact is that these women use this phony concern and scare women, absolutely scare the crap out of them. WTF is wrong with us that we let this go on and no rabbi or rebbetzin seems to be speaking out against it?
