Ultra-Orthodox Israeli Men Get Blurring Glasses To Avoid Women

Priceless. $6.00 eye glasses that blur vision are being sold to Israeli ultra-Orthodox Jewish men so they won't be tempted by immodestly dressed females. Their married women, of course, are very modestly dressed- long skirts, long sleeved shirts, along with wigs and/or hats or kerchiefs- it's those other tarts out there that need to be "blurred" from view.

The ultra-Orthodox community’s unofficial “modesty patrols” are selling glasses with special blur-inducing stickers on their lenses. The glasses provide clear vision for up to a few meters so as not to impede movement, but anything beyond that gets blurry -including women. It’s not known how many have been sold.

For men forced to venture outside their insular communities, hoods and shields that block peripheral vision are also being offered.

At least the men are imposing those restrictions upon themselves, as opposed to placing the burden on the woman, as with the Muslim faith- although the extreme Orthodox Jews are just as fanatical as some of the conservative Muslims when it comes to segregating women.

Maybe ultra-Orthodox Jewish and Muslim males should wear the burqas along with these glasses and leave the women alone.  If they have no self-control, then the burden should be on them.  It just demonstrates how the ultra religious males in both religions are very similar in their attitudes towards women.
