A group of women challenged the views of an Iranian clerk on Monday, who proposed an aspect of the female anatomy causes earthquakes.
San Francisco (WiredPRNews.com) – A group of women banned together on Facebook Monday to show their cleavage for a cause. As reported by AFP, the women and others participated in the online event “Boobquake” to challenge assertions made by an Iranian cleric that clevage caused earthquakes.
As noted in the report, the coincidental occurrence of a Taiwan temblor as the event began prompted college senior and blogger Jennifer McCreight to playfully state on her blog, “No, the Taiwan earthquake is not statistically significant – yet… If we get many of a similar magnitude in the next 24 hours, then we might start worshiping the power of immodesty.”
McCreight utilized Facebook and Twitter to enlist supporters of her cyberevent, to which thousands of people responded with messages and comments. Online store Zazzle.com reportedly sold “Boobquake 2010” t-shirts in connection with the event, with proceeds going to aid in the battle against breast cancer.
