Will you spit on them for being "Mityavnim"? What about hermeneutical Aristotelian logic, which we borrowed from the Greeks and which is the very nucleus of the very Talmud these ultra-Ortthodox study day and night. Don't decry Helenism, lest you are left without Jewish civilization. The Maccabees fought Helenism in idol-worship, and the cruelty of crushing Jewish worship in the Temple and elsewhere. As Abraham Joshua Heschel put it: Helenists sanctified beauty, Jews beautified sanctity. 2176 years after the glorious triumph of the Macabees, we know what hormones are, and don't think beauty is a "danger". We still want to beautify sanctity. Spitting on a 8-year old girl and segregating women, is the opposite of both Jewish and Greek values.
