I need one of those absolutely-harmless foam bats

. . . 'cause, so help me, if I get one more comment on my dances posted on YouTube complaining that I've left the top button of my blouse unbuttoned. . .

Will someone please explain to me what's so obscene about a woman's collarbone?

(Sigh. Here's a photo of a foam bat [not exactly what I had in mind, but that's the closest I could find.] Here's an explanation of this post and links to my dances--you be the judge!)

Out upon you, fie upon you, bold-faced jig!


no, seriously, people who use the Internet to go to YouTube and watch a Jewish woman dance, and then complain about your lack of tznius? They need to get over themselves.

But then, I still think "tznius" is not the actual halacha; given the derivation, the real issue is humility.

Or maybe they're trying to humble you? (groan)

Yeah, that's pretty much my own thought: If you object, why are you watching?

As for tzniut (modesty and/or humility), I'm a lot better at dressing modestly (right-wing opinions to the contrary notwithstanding) than at conducting myself with humility.
