Seismic Sisterhood: Boobquake

Seismic Sisterhood: Boobquake

Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi recently asserted that immodest female dress causes earthquakes. Purdue University student Jen McCreight disagreed, and urged other women to join her in a day of décolletée, a worldwide scientific experiment called Boobquake. On Monday they did, risking rumblings of Earth’s tectonic plates by ample exposure of cleavage.

Boobquake was a bust. Ayatollah 1, ladies 0.

Taiwan suffered a 6.3 scale temblor while the damsels dared to go fairly bare. We do not know if Boobquake demonstrations were held in Taiwan, and there is seismic activity somewhere in the world on any given day, but results of the Boobquake experiment were unrevealing. Men the world over are calling for repetition of Boobquake, for an extended time period. Just for the sake of Science, mind you.

    […] The rest is commentary. She notes that it is biochemistry, not bad manners, that causes men to stare at women’s breasts, but does not comment on Boobquake. […]
