Breast Jihad

Just as the anime blogosphere’s Oppai Taisen appeared to be dead – the energy and vigor having leached out with the high-profile defection of shinn87 – real life stepped up to intensify things.

Mother Jones reported:

Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi claimed that scantily-clad women were responsible for earthquakes: “Many women who do not dress modestly…lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes.”

Female blogger Jen McCreight posted in response to Sedighi:

In the name of science, I offer my boobs.

Sedighi claims that not dressing modestly causes earthquakes. If so, we should be able to test this claim scientifically. . .

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.

On April 21, she added:

The twitter stream for #boobquake is updating so quickly that I can’t keep up. To top that off, I just got interviewed by the largest newspaper in Canada and some radio station in Ireland wants to interview me.

Because I made a boob joke.

The suggestion that natural disasters are evidence of divine intervention is hardly limited to Islam, but this may be the first grass-roots effort to test such a conjecture.

And the result?  According to the Daily Mail:

As women across the globe today bared their breasts in defiance of Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi’s claim that cleavage caused earthquakes, the earth shook in Taiwan.

A tremor, measuring 6.5 on the richter scale, came as a Facebook event called ‘Boobquake’ received support from 200,000 women vowing to bare their chests.

Breasts have been weaponized.

Doom am I, full-ripe, dealing death to the worlds, engaged in devouring mankind.

-The Bhagavad Gita

  2. Hahaha! Oppai definitely has supernatural power.

    Bare oppai dance helped get the sunlight back in Japanese mythology. Boob bouncing causes tamafuri (soul shaking or re-energizing soul). Hippy hippy shake. I think dance like Samba will cause quake, like Shiva’s dance.

    The Maid of Dawn also drives away malignity and darkness by displaying her body in Rig Veda.

    200,000 oppai are really powerful enough to cause the quake.

  4. I see what you did with that line from the Bhagavad, haha. Wonder what effect ‘unripe’ breasts and loli breasts will have. Sinkholes, perhaps?
