So, many of you (being smart, sexy people) probably saw the recent public comments by Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi (the acting Friday prayer leader in Tehran) that women who dress immodestly cause earthquakes. Patently ridiculous, of course, and more proof of the backwards thinking that plagues many Middle Eastern countries (c'mon, religious and cultural traditions are all well and good, but when you start getting into utter crap like women having to keep their faces covered or walk ten paces behind their husbands, then I immediately discount your religious or cultural traditions as being a waste of my time).
But there's a movement today aimed at demonstrating just how ridiculous this is.
That's right, people, today is Boobquake 2010.
Atheist and geeky blogger Jen McCreight has decided that today she's going to wear a moderately "scandalous" outfit (in other words, show a bit of cleavage) and has urged all women to join her and test the power of boobs. I am in favor of this idea. Not only do we get to demonstrate how ridiculous the claim of impropriety causing earthquakes is, I get to see some lovely boobage.
So if you're so inclined, join Jen in making Boobquake an event (or, rather, a non-event) to be remembered!
(Original Boobquake post here; Jen's clarification and response to public outcry is here; and today's Boobquake coverage is here.)
Yes, there will be a FFF challenge entry posted later today. I wanted to get this up in time to hopefully catch some of you ladies before you head off to work today.
