Fun with Hasidic photoshop

Earlier this week, the ultra-Orthodox, Hasidic Jewish newspaper Der Tzitung incited outrage by photoshopping Hillary Clinton and Audrey Thomason out of the Situation Room in an iconic photo in the name of tzniut, or modesty. A few days later, it's an internet meme. People are photoshopping women out of important or iconic images, with results that are either hilarious or harrowing as women are literally erased from our public memories.

Here are some of my favorites from Heeb Magazine and HasidicPhotoshop.com:

Lulz. I'm so glad that I now know about this meme.
