It's interesting, but if you think about it, it has to be this way. If the reform rabbis thought any differently... they'd be out of a job!

Another observation:
They don't care what the reason is for how parchment came to be used. The main thing is "it's tradition" (sounds like fiddler on the roof).

I guess that's l'shitasam, that regardless of the origins, every generation is entitled to discard the old "if there is good reason".

Just the opposite of us; Once there is a takana, we can't uproot it even if the original reason no longer applies (such as yom tov shaini after the fixed claendar was put in place).

They seem to at least in theory have a concept of daas Torah. It's the
Rabbis at the top who determine "what makes sense". Note the responsa didn't say if you think parchment
makes no sense, you don't need it. No, the Rabbi who wrote this is deciding what makes sense. Interesting.

Ah, but what if they're vegans, and don't use animal products? I'm surprised that this wasn't an issue.

Question - my take of the word "prust" is usually someone or something that is vulgar, but with a SEXUAL conotation. I guess whenever I heard it said in yeshiva, it was always with a sexual slant, denigrating a rasha or the like for sexual behavior. But then I was talking with my uncle this evening and I used the word to describe Hugh Hefner ("a prusta person who has been blessed with 80 years of life") and he said that when he was growing up that the Yiddish word "prust" just meant coarse or unrefined. Am I off base here or is there a reason I might have always heard "prust" used with a sexual slant?
