It's sad that I'm not even sure if you're being sarcastic or not.

What a world.
You mean I should feel sad for you (and others)that you canít comprehend such a value in yuddishkeit ? Itís for me to say I do...

A value? You really think it would be ideal if your wife never left the house?

I am always open to listening and understanding other views.
Honestly.

What exactly is the value you have here that I misunderstood?

In the ideal world of tnius we really wouldn't have women at all. Ok lemaisah it's not practical so we keep them around otherwise we would all die out but it doesn't mean that they should actually do anything. I mean come on, if you let them out of the house a man might actually see one!

I understand that you think this could be a virtue in yiddishkeit but you haven't said where that comes from. It's not you or me who makes up what "Yiddishe values" are or are not.

Women smoking has a major stigma attached to it in the non-jewish world as well...

+1  I don't know if I would say major but def more of a stigma versus a lot of other countries.

Ok, maybe not a major stigma but it's definitely seen as unladylike for a woman to smoke cigarettes. I may be totally off on this but that's the way I've always felt general perception was.

Maybe this is the underlying reason

גמרא פסחים ג,א שבאשה קראו מושב כיון שאין דרכה ברכיבה, ופירשĒי שאין דרכה של אשה ברכיבה, וברבינו חננאל כתב שהוא דרך גנאי לאשה.
