Baci Weiler was asked if she was Jewish and if she wanted to put on tefillin by the Chabad worker who seemingly did not notice that she was not biologically male. Weiler quipped on Facebook that the mistake on the part of the Orthodox Chabadnik led to a desirable result from her perspective: egalitarianism. Weiler posted a photo with tefillin at the Chabad table along with the following text:"This happened last friday at a chabad table. Apparently, buzzed hair + baggy t-shirt + charedi lack of any concept of fluidity in gender expression = egalitarianism. Tefillin with a bracha [blessing], administered by a chabadnik! bimheira beyameinu [Hebrew for "it should come speedily in our time]." Weiler also posted on Facebook that the run in at the Chabad booth came one year after she bought her own set of tefillin.
