Looks like a black version of the Ku Klux Klan robe.In fact, in political theory that defines points of view from left to right (or right to left), the "center" is regarded as the meeting of moderates, whereas opposite that, the meeting of radical extremes of left and right (often without even knowing it) match up in outlook and practice, regardless of their purported "official" ideology.Thus, radical religious Islamists find common ground with radical secular anarchists, and in this case too, radical burka wearers conjoin with extremist right wingers klansmen, in dress, mentality and fanaticism.Rather a sad state of affairs.
These women are definitely vitamin "H" deficient, as in "H"aldol.
People will look back on this moment and realize this was the point at which the drive toward stringency finally became such a farce that the entire Charedi world will begin a slow and steady, but decisive and deliberate move back toward the basic halachah.One can hope! May G-d help us.From Sichos Haran #235(Rebbe Nachman of Breslov):"Don't follow excessive stringencies in your practice of the Torah. "God does not rule over His creatures with tyranny" ( Avodah Zarah 3a) - "The Torah was not given to ministering angels" ( Berachot 25b) .Our rabbis have taught that it is proper for each person to choose for himself one mitzvah to observe with particular care in all its fine details (Shabbat 118b ). Yet even with your chosen mitzvah, you should not be excessively strict to the point of folly. Don't let it make you depressed. Simply try to keep the mitzvah carefully in all its finer points, but without excessive punctiliousness.As for the other mitzvot, simply follow the essential laws without adding extra stringencies. If only we could keep all the mitzvot of the Torah according to the simple interpretation of the law without seeking to go beyond it!There is no need to look for extra stringencies: this is foolish and confusing. The essence of serving God is simplicity and sincerity. Pray much, study much Torah and carry out many good deeds without seeking out or inventing unnecessary restrictions. Simply follow the path of our forefathers. "The Torah was not given to ministering angels.""

She was only in the stall for a couple of minutes but a male molester was already hiding inside another stall waiting for a lone victim and molested her!
Yeshaya, this will not be a turning point. It is far more likely that in twenty years a new book will come out from Feldheim or Artscroll about "tznius" in which this shitah of walking around like a Taliban woman is explained and given support from "poskim" and seen as a sign of great personal mesiras nefesh and piety.
That just ices the "romance cake" for me as a cone-headed woman happens to be my fetish.
