    One group is exercising its legal rights in a manner which some other people disagree with. The second group is vandalizing property and trying to intimidate the first group. And you think that it is the first group that is being "disrespectful"... I find that mind-boggling. Women have no obligation whatsoever to conform to a subservient role in society just because some religious nuts think that that is how it should be. In a democratic society these nuts have a right to their archaic beliefs but they have no right to force them onto other people. If I thought that God forbade every man woman and child on Earth to wear sunglasses I wouldn't get some moral right to go around trashing people's homes just because they didn't do as my religious conviction dictated that they should. The same applies in this case: Orthodox men do not get some magical right to oppress women just because they do not share their religious views. Not even if they feel "disrespected"...
