What's infuriating about ami magazine going after Avital Chizhik-Goldschmidt is not that ami magazine is gross. We knew that.
It's that, after constantly telling people "no you can't criticize the community when you're not part of it" (not just ami, but a lot of Haredi voices and apologists) and "you need to go through the proper channels"....
That's how they react to someone who has always been a part of the community, defended the community when appropriate, and has largely colored inside the lines, so to speak, starts raising some critiques.
And what gets revealed is, it was never about the right people or the right channels or whatever. You just want to be immune from criticism.
Are there bad faith critics of Haredim and Orthodoxy in general? Absolutely. Does that mean you have an excuse to act with impunity and refuse to reflect or even listen? Absolutely not.
And no, I'm not waiting around to have a personal audience with whatever rebbe who has absolute power over his chassidim because his great-grandfather married a genius's daughter, to point out that, hey, there's a problem.
