It’s very much the typical “I don’t want to do what you want to do, so it’s okay with me that you are forbidden to do what you want to do, even though what you want to do is very meaningful to you.” It completely dismisses the possibility that different types of people have different wants and needs, and different ways to connect with God. The post also contains typical falsehoods such as that the way the men pray is the way it’s been done for two millenia. Prayer practices have evolved and changed greatly over time.

And, let’s be honest, it’s only since Israel liberated the Old City in 1967, that there have even been properly separated men’s and women’s sections at the Wall.
