Haredi Eyeglasses Meant To Blur Out Women Also Come With Blinders
Discerning haredi male customers can not only buy those blurry eyeglasses meant to make it difficult for wearers to see women on the street, they can also buy blinders and special hoods to make it nearly impossible to see anything except your own feet.
As I reported Monday, Mea Shearim-based haredim are now selling special glasses with blur-inducing stickers on their lenses. The glasses allow wearers to see clearly for a few feet, but anything beyond that is blurry — so blurry that seeing a hot woman (or any woman) walking on the street won't be any different than looking a a blurry sack of potatoes. And that, of course, is the purpose of the glasses –haredi hyper-"modesty."
Now the AP is reporting that the glasses can be purchased alone for the modest price of $6. But haredim are also selling blinders and hoods to go with them, further limiting what haredi male eyes can see.
