Let’s Cause An Earthquake
So, did you hear that the cause of earthquakes is promiscuous women? Yeah, fuck science.
A prayer leader in Tehran named Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi announced, following the recent earthquake that hit Iran,
Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes.
That’s right, boobs cause earthquakes.
And Jen McCreight is proposing we test Mr. Sedighi’s theory out.
On her blog “Blag Hag”, McCreight calls for women around the world to wear their most ‘immodest’ clothing on Monday, April 26th in an attempt to cause Boobquake. She clarifies that by immodest, she doesn’t necessarily mean cleavage-bearing, panty-flashing clothes, but whatever you feel comfortable in.
There’s a Facebook group for the event, with (at the time of this posting) over 75,000 confirmed attending. So, it’s kind of a big deal I guess.
Do it or don’t, I’m officially a fan of Blag Hag for challenging Sedighi’s ridiculous sexist claims.
And if you feel that her proposal is demeaning/slutty/terrible/anti-feminist/stupid, please read her lengthy (but worth-while) response to your claims here.
