Now Is Not The Time To Call Jewish Intellectuals Sexy
Regarding your “Sexiest Jewish Intellectual” list: it is beyond an appalling and tone deaf use of column inches to have this list. We are in the throes of a near constant stream of conversations about sexual harassment and assault and calling intellectualism sexy is not cute and is a mystifying objectification of women and men who are engaged in important work.
These lists are problematic enough without throwing in a completely superficial and meaningless category. This is how you mark 120 years?
