Hot or Not - Some semantics and a continuation
In order to properly continue this discussion some vocabulary needs to be nailed down.
Here's what we've learned from the last post:
1) Generally speaking snoods and baggy denim jumpers are not so hot.
2) Married women should bring a robe or pajamas along when they travel.
More to the point:
3) There is a difference between being beautiful and being hot. There is no doubt that a Jewish woman (married or not) can be beautiful, but hotness is a more complicated question.
So what does it mean to be hot? It means something different than beautiful. A child can be beautiful but cannot be "hot" I also believe that an elderly person cannot be considered "hot" although they may be beautiful. To me this means that being hot means being attractive in a more or less sexual way (depending on your interpretation.)
From an anthropological point of view it makes a lot of sense that women should have that certain unquantifiable thing that attracts men- this is what keeps the human race alive after all. However, once a Jewish woman has attracted her mate should her (potential) sexuality no longer be available for general consumption?
Many say that this is why married Orthodox women begin to cover their hair after marriage, adding another layer to her modesty to cover more of her sexuality which is now only available to her husband.
So let me add to one of my original questions:
Does the knowledge that a woman is married (with or without the hair covering) affect her hotness or air of sexuality?
What say you?
