Doing my part to support Boobquake

Alright ladies, as some of you might be aware, your supple and curvy bodies are potentially responsible for earthquakes and other natural disasters (that’s according to this Muslim Cleric). In the spirit of causing more havoc, Blag-Hag invites the fairer sex to partake in what she calls “BookQuake”:

On Monday, April 26th, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. Yes, the one usually reserved for a night on the town. I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts. Or short shorts, if that’s your preferred form of immodesty. With the power of our scandalous bodies combined, we should surely produce an earthquake. If not, I’m sure Sedighi can come up with a rational explanation for why the ground didn’t rumble. And if we really get through to him, maybe it’ll be one involving plate tectonics.

For the purpose of documentation, I humbly offer my services as both inspector and archivist. If you’ve got any pictures you think are worthy of “God’s wrath”, don’t hesitate to send them my way (if I get enough I may end up putting a post up, so try to keep them relatively safe for work).

**NOTE** Apparently, Blag Hag has been on the receiving end of criticism over the event by feminists, who claim she is helping to further the objectification of women’s bodies. I have to ask these people a simple question: is this the hill you want to die on? Is this really the most serious and pressing concern you have over women’s rights? Why don’t you worry about Afghanistan instead, where an estimated 90% of women there suffer some form of domestic abuse; surely, that’s a better use of your time. Of course, trying to help the plight of women around the world is a bit difficult, isn’t it?

The flip side to all of this is that Blag Hag’s Facebook group has exploded, and she’s even getting interviewed by major news networks. Nice job, girl!

    This is a very, very dangerous idea. Women could hold us men to ransom – “Give us loads of money or else we’ll cause earthquakes.”

    Why on Earth did that cleric have to blurt out the real reason behind earthquakes? We’re all doomed!

    Say what you will, Nick, but it’d be a hell of a way to go! I, for one, welcome our supple, curvy, earthquake-causing overlords. =)

    I wholeheartedly support this effort.

    Jon, don’t forget bouncy. Never forget the bouncy. 😉

    Seriously though, it amazes me that we still live in a world where people believe that natural events that can be easily explained have some kind of bullshit supernatural moral judgment to them.

    Poor Blag Hag has been inundated with feminist hate mail.
    Some people just need to chill the fuck out. It was a joke. And a great one at that! I know I’ll be participating in the Boobquake, it’s a hilarious concept.

    I fully support her!

    Holly, I’m with you. I can’t believe Blag Hag got flak, but when I posted about this on my FB page (Nadia Williams, Anida Adler is my alter ego), I got the longest comment trail I’ve ever seen. I ended it all with this comment after a virtual dissertation on the objectification of the female body:

    *rolls eyes and picks out a shirt for Monday*

    It would be hilarious if there actually was a big quake on Monday. LMAO.

    I’ll be joining in!!

    Feminists need to shut the fuck up. Part of my rights as a human being is to wear whatever the hell I choose… So if I choose to wear something that would make Muslim men want to kill me, tough shit!!

    Does the Seismographer counter ring up bonus points for women with larger boobs?

    and should breast enlargements get any extra points – since they are man made and not GOD made – ?

    She has a great rack, good thing because it stops me from looking at her face.

    For those forced into “sex slavery” or prostitution or strip clubs in order to secure life’s basics find your approach nothing more a “revictimization” of those women who prefer to wear a respectable outfit (yes a women’s feminine side can be shown with respect by a nice shirt and jeans or a tailored suit). While the extremist views of the cause of earthquakes is certainly entertaining, it is women’s dignity and respect that is taken hostage by those who only care to promote their self-interests over the public-interests…Honestly, breasts are nothing more than blobs of fat, with nipples to feed babies, some see them for what they were made for “feeding babies” so please respect motherhood for those nursing when you decide to launch your next “hate attack.”
