Hillary too sexy for the shot

Where’s Hillary? Hasidic paper breaks rules by editing Clinton out of White House photo

Hillary Clinton has been edited out of the photo in the White House Situation Room because of her gender:

That would be the Ultra-Orthodox Hasidic broadsheet Der Tzitung, published in Brooklyn. The paper photoshopped Clinton, as well at the only other woman who could be seen in the room–Audrey Tomason, the national director of counterterrorism–out of the frame.

Here’s what Der Tzitung had to say about this situation:

“In accord with our religious beliefs, we do not publish photos of women, which in no way relegates them to a lower status… Because of laws of modesty, we are not allowed to publish pictures of women, and we regret if this gives an impression of disparaging to women, which is certainly never our intention. We apologize if this was seen as offensive.”

That’s really funny – they don’t want to be seen as relegating women to “a lower status” or being “disparaging to women.”  Then why don’t they forbid men to buy/see these broadsheets? They are called broad sheets afterall – let the broads see them and keep them out of the hands of men. Easy peazy.
