How would you know this?


The same way we know pretty much anything - through repeated experiment. If you had hirhurim multiple times, and nothing ever happened, then wouldn't this be a chazaka that hirhurim don't cause zera levatala for you?

I guess I'm asking the wrong crowd. Since you guys don't seem to care about tznius, this obviously doesn't bother you.

As far as I can tell all the women are modestly covered, so its not untzniut. There is a lot of false advertising in those pictures, as the wigs are three inches back from the hairlines, and its a bit dishonest. But even that barely gets me going as most shaitel macher ads do the same thing.

Please tell me how anyone can consider this as promoting tznius.

If you find it so problematic and offensive, why are you sharing it with a board that includes a nice amount of frum men?

The reason why the OP is terrible is not because there's nothing wrong with the sheitel. It's because OP has an opinion about it, and people don't seem to see it for the insanity that it is. Imagine people racing to post online that they heard a fallacious d'var Torah, or that someone in their neighborhood refuses to give tzedaka. People understand that certain things are none of their business, and that dignity overrides the mandate to comment on the minutia of other people's lives. And yet, somehow that overriding instinct does not apply to men calling out specific women for specific breaches of tznius. Even the Nazis did not complain about women's tznius, because they understood that it was not appropriate.
The world has too many stupid people who are full of confidence, and smart people who are full of self-doubt.

We're not the ones looking at women's wig websites.......
What's next? Lingerie site trolling?

The reason men are not allowed to look at untznius images is because of hirhurim (licentious thoughts), and not necessarily that it might lead to masturbation. The same should apply to women reading erotica - if it puts licentious thoughts into their heads.


Should? but doesn't. Women are halachically allowed to masturbate. Weather they should is another question.

Perhaps if the OP posts this on YWN, he might generate the amount of outrage that he seems to feel is appropriate.

What do you mean? Either there is zera (levatala), or there isn't. I don't think there is a middle ground. What sort of 'happenings' are you talking about??
