If you don’t know what Boobquake is, then you don’t watch enough news. But if that is the case, here’s the story. An Iranian Islamic cleric, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, is predicting that earthquakes will hit Iran soon and it’s the women who are at…fault (Eh? Eh? See what I did there?). Apparently he thinks women wearing immodest clothing and behaving promiscuously have offended “God,” and that is why we have earthquakes.
“Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes”
Of course, Iran sits on top of a very unstable fault, so it’s only a matter of time before another earthquake hits regardless of whether the Iranian women wear underwear under their burqas.
So this little farce has inspired Boobquake, a movement designed to fight such primitive superstition byand the oppression of women by dressing immodestly. The proposal was to scientifically test his claim by devoting an entire day to women dressing immodestly to see if they could cause an earthquake with nothing but the power of their breasts.
Today, Monday April 26th, is that day!
So by the end of today, we’ll know scientifically who the real boob is.
