The female contains the most sensitive spiritual energy, and wherever she is, flies are attracted along with good forces. The Jewish concept of modesty is necessary to avoid deleterious relationships that come from unwise revelation of the self in the cosmic or social fabric. A woman dancing free in public school and then college is so exposed that her femininity may be damaged. The Jewish home is just the opposite of the secular gender experience. Nobody goes near my daughters until I have thoroughly checked them out. When they see a boy, it is for real. The idea of unleashing transcendence with a dozen people is simply unwise. I have friends whose daughters went here and there, and cannot marry. The parents tear their hair, the girl attends weddings and bravely smiles, and the clock ticks louder and louder.
Yes, there are gender roles. Those who practice Jewish gender roles are saved from the hate that is manifested in secular society between men and women, and it is hate. Studies show that colleges are so full of feminism or hate for men, that men are no longer treated properly on campus, and are gradually refusing to attend college. Of course, they are refusing increasingly to marry. The only solution is to describe gender roles, and to promote modesty, rather than what goes on today, which leads only to anger.
