Boobquake

Every once in a while you hear something that is as outrageous as it is hilarious.

According to an Iranian cleric, "Many women who dress inappropriately cause youths to go astray, taint their chastity and incite extra-marital sex in society, which increases earthquakes".

Yes, earthquakes…no less. Maybe this is the reason behind earthquakes almost on a daily basis in California! The fault line that runs down the state has nothing to do with it.

Who needs geologists when we have religious fundamentalists to explain nature's phenomena?

And of course, the pure innocent things that men are, they have no contribution towards these earthquakes whatsoever.

The cleric has also said that calamities are the result of people's deeds, and we have no way but to conform to Islam to ward off dangers. Therefore, every woman, regardless of her religion or nationality, must cover her hair and bodily contours in public and offenders should get punished.

Isn’t that such a delightful thing to hear in today’s day & age?

To protest against this, on April 26, women across the world came out of their homes minimally dressed and the day was celebrated as ‘Boobquake Day’. And what do you know...Taiwan did face a 6.5 magnitude earthquake on that day!!

I’m just thinking….can you imagine how much extra-marital sex needs to happen simultaneously around the world to cause an earthquake? A hell of a lot, nay? ;)

@Chanz - Yes, women are always at fault. There's this line in Khaled Hosseini's 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' that goes something like "a man's finger always finds a woman". So true...

@Moonshine - People will never cease to surprise...

@Knife - I know what you're smiling at? :)

@Chanz - Sorry, it was "a man's accusing finger always finds a woman" :)
