View Full Version : OT-In Wake of 'Boobquake,' Iranian Cleric Defends Earthquake-Promiscuity Link

TEHRAN, Iran -- A prominent hard-line Iranian cleric who said promiscuity and immodest dress cause earthquakes says God may be holding off on natural disasters in the West in order to let people sin more and consign themselves to hell.

Kazem Sedighi sparked widespread derision with his pronouncements in a prayer sermon last month linking earthquakes with women's dress.

"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," Sedighi said in mid April. In a new sermon Friday, he has defended and elaborated on his claim.

Sedighi notes that some might ask why there aren't more earthquakes and storms striking Western nations that are "up to their necks" in immorality. He says the answer is that God allows some of those who "provoke His wrath" to continue sinning "so that they (eventually) go to the bottom of Hell."

In response to Sedighi's earlier comments, blogger Jennifer McCreight of Indiana had called on women to show as much cleavage as possible through a Facebook page aptly named Boobquake. Despite an earthquake that surprisingly did strike on April 26, the appointed day of Boobquake, McCreight remains convinced that cleavage doesn't cause quakes.

Meanwhile "saddened" by the frivolousness of Boobquake, a second Facebook group called for "Brainquake," a day for women to “show off their resumes, CVs, honors, prizes, and accomplishments.”

I have 3 roommates, 2 female and one male, and I guarantee you that the one female roommate talks more about her (ample)cleavage in a week than I have about boobs in general in my entire life.

maybe she does. but given the insane amount of avatars not exactly showcasing the female brain on a board about football and a whole thread about the power of its mojo, it isn't us doing most of the talking as a general rule.

There was a line or something in Notting Hill where Julia Roberts asks Hugh Grant what the big deal is about them and of course it's played for humor, but to be honest I don't entirely get it.

I mean partially sure, but in the end it isn't like we spend all our time talking about your guys anatomy. I think guys are more obsessed with their penis then we are.

It depends on the woman how much they talk about penises. Some women (like you apparently) don't really bring it up in conversation so much. Other woman (I know of many) like to have conversations about them, and do it frequently.

As far as boobs go: They're nice. They're fun to look at and play with. They compliment the other curves on a woman's body nicely. It's also fun to have certain parts of a woman's body to be considered "taboo" to display too prominently. I actually enjoy the body of a woman in it's entirety though. I can become just as...interested...at the sight of a few glistening droplets of fresh sweat gently rolling down the side of a woman's neck for instance.

It's a mystery to us, too, but it's hardwired. It's not like we're attracted on an intellectual level. What people find "attractive" or "unattractive" is a generally confusing field to begin with.

Anyways, my point was that I'm not running around talking about boobs/having boobs as my avatar, and I'm a guy. Not all the same, us dudes.

P.S.

I really like the idea of God as waiting for people to sin so he can send them to hell.

Well, he invented everything, but I agree(I joke, I joke). The Old Testament comes across very much like a little kid holding a magnifying glass up to the sun, and focusing the light directly next to an ant, saying "DON'T MOVE TO THE SIDE, ANT, DON'T YOU DO IT!"

While avoiding a bible debate, I find this whole thing really funny.

oh I don't think it's all men. It's unfair to entirely categorize anyone, though in this case there are times when guys do play to it. I've just had enough conversations where I was the only one trying to make eye contact (since their eyes were otherwise engaged, not easy to do) to wonder what the fascination was and figured I would jack the boob thread and ask.

and if God is waiting for us to sin for said passage to hell, I must have a first class ticket there. ;D

If "showing cleavage" caused earthquakes, I'd probably be responsible for at least one or two. And to my knowledge I still have none to my credit so I highly doubt the veracity of this hypothesis.

Men's attraction to boobs really just can't be adequately explained. It is such an autonomic reaction like breathing, we don't even think about it, it's just something that happens all day long. We don't plan it, prepare for it, or seek out the distraction, it just sneaks up on us and wins every time no matter the conversation we are in. Boobs are like Ninja, they never lose. :~ohyah!:

So showing a little cleavage (or alot) and gawking at it is more of a sin then strapping a bomb on your ass and walking among groups of innocent men, women and children and blowing them all into orbit.

I think the attraction to boobs has a lot to do with women shoving them in our faces to get attention. The boob craze is made by women I think. Show me a smart woman and I go crazy. There is nothing hotter. I guess it's the rarity of it, you know, like 4leaf clovers. Boobs I can see when I watch 7 year olds in bikinis ungulating like whores at a dance recital or go on facebook for ten seconds. But a woman who is smart and cool, (Gina doesn't count in This tirade, you rock) is hard to find.

I equate this rant to trying to find another gay guy who enjoys sports for more than the gear...or doesnt lisp...or wear shirts that spell out bitch in rhinestones. Or think I should go with a faux hawk because they are so in right now...or watches Glee religiously or has a pride sticker anywhere on anything they own or does the weird head motion when they say oh no you didnt. Or wont drink beer because of the carbs.

well, I don't know I can agree to that. We've been socialized, both men and women to a certain idealized vision of masculinity and femininity. women have been taught both by experience and discussion that men are into sex, sports, sex, alcohol, sex. And that you all have thoughts about sex every 10 seconds or so. we've also been taught both my images, other people and other sources that women should be thin, but busty and do whatever it is to make her man happy. now is that a stereotype that everyone fits? Of course it is a stereotype, but not everybody fits it. A lot of the guys on here seem to though, but it is the internet and the one truth above all else is that people are full of crap (literally and figuratively) so who knows what anyone really thinks.

as for the original post, I find it interesting women's cleavage is the blame for seducing men, when as someone else mentioned, God made it so how can it be evil? and not only that men can say no. nobody's forcing them to act on temptation. But the blame the woman argument is hardly a new one, I believe there's a little story about an apple some woman fed to a man and how it was her fault the fall from the Garden, though since she was tempted by a serpent, seems to me men are to blame or at least ya know the serpent. ;D

I never said boobs were evil. All I'm trying to say is that I'm sick of women blaming men for only caring about their boobies when it's your fault for not being more interesting than them.

I like boobs, but they are a whole lot better when attached to a working brain stem. Do you know how frustrating it is to always hear this from women as they are shoving their boobs in your face? It's maddening.

I didn't say you did think they were evil, that was the implication of the original article.

And I agree, a working brain stem is the sexiest thing. Stupid men are not a turn on. I have three things I actually care about in a guy: be funny, be smart, be kind.

And I am so more interesting than my boobs, though those are okay too, I don't dislike them.

Which is why you were excluded from my psycho rant. I'm sorry it just that my mother and three older sisters are all feminists and just about the most sexist people in the world.

I'm not upset and I enjoy this conversation. There's room for balance in everything. I do think women are in much better positions than we used to be, but there are still nagging things like religion that continue to put women as the fault for things that are not solely on them and rape is still pretty difficult to prove. I've read enough and been in enough conversations that while we've come along way from women are property and you can do what you like, rape is still something people almost inevitably blame women for (she dressed inappropriately, drank too much) and is muddied by the celebrity cases when there's an association of money or publicity seeking. Women are almost damned if they do or don't prosecute. It's still not easy because it is a he said she said unless there's enough physical proof, and even then slandering the character always works.

As for Sex and the City, this is my take because I enjoy some of the show, but it isn't exactly deep (the characters are archetypes as they are in a lot of shows). It is really the first show that allows women to talk about sex openly, it opened conversations within women to address things we never really did talk about before that (though shows like Maude, Golden Girls, Designing Women and Murphy Brown opened the door for them) Most women are not comfortable talking about sex as a general rule, but watching this show allowed a way to do that because it could be couched in an episode of the show. Is it the best show ever, no, my favorite at the moment is Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Veronica Mars (both characters who are strong, have sex, but their primary focus is not on that specifically).

Buffy is the strongest woman character I have ever seen. It does much more for woman than a dried up cougar with lame one liners and multiple stds. I think all real men want a real woman, and that is why the feminist movement has failed IMO. Woman may be making better money and may have better jobs, but talking about sex does not make them more interesting.

I always appreciated women for being subtle, and now they act like children that get to swear when their parents are away and think it's cool and part of the equal rights movemet to say cock and sleep around.

Basically they have turned into 13 year old boys and the power of a real woman is being taught less and less. And on top of it, most of the time it really is just about putting men down if you really pay attention To it.

I guess I would love more Buffy and less Samantha.

And I never blame a woman for rape unless she is wearing daisy dukes and licking on a lollipop. That's just asking for it really.

okay, I get that sex is too overt. That's why I prefer certain films where it is more implied than explicit.

But you are generalizing by saying feminism has mainly empowered women to put down men. Some women do that, but that's because they don't understand what feminism is about. to me at least, it's about enjoying being a woman, having a sense of independence of identity separate from your relationships, but that does not isolate you from those relationships. Overall I tend to embrace more secular humanist ideologies in conjunction with some of feminism.

I liked Sex and the city because it allowed me to feel it was okay for women to enjoy sex too. You would think that would be common sense, but it's not. Plus it isn't like being raised Catholic I was ever taught more than, wait until you get married. Do I think we should talk about sex all the time, no, but I think it shouldn't be a taboo topic either. Sex is best with someone you genuinely connect with and care about and can as needed discuss it honestly.

this is beautiful.... Sadly, you aren't common in my world. I imagine many men feel more like I do. I understand everything you said and it gives me hope that my sexist and irrational generalizations are misguided, even if only for a minute or two.

Minutes up.... Now answer me this, why are you so smart, much to smart to be female. are you post operative?

I never said boobs were evil. All I'm trying to say is that I'm sick of women blaming men for only caring about their boobies when it's your fault for not being more interesting than them.

I like boobs, but they are a whole lot better when attached to a working brain stem. Do you know how frustrating it is to always hear this from women as they are shoving their boobs in your face? It's maddening.

Sometimes you just need to tell those women to stop having their boobs staring at your eyes.

okay, I get that sex is too overt. That's why I prefer certain films where it is more implied than explicit.

But you are generalizing by saying feminism has mainly empowered women to put down men. Some women do that, but that's because they don't understand what feminism is about. to me at least, it's about enjoying being a woman, having a sense of independence of identity separate from your relationships, but that does not isolate you from those relationships. Overall I tend to embrace more secular humanist ideologies in conjunction with some of feminism.

I liked Sex and the city because it allowed me to feel it was okay for women to enjoy sex too. You would think that would be common sense, but it's not. Plus it isn't like being raised Catholic I was ever taught more than, wait until you get married. Do I think we should talk about sex all the time, no, but I think it shouldn't be a taboo topic either.

You just want a big ole ass kicking don't ya? No, not post op. I just think you are jaded. There are lots of women who are smart and funny and think to some degree like I do. A lot of them are on this board actually. I was just raised to be be kind to people, to believe there was nothing I couldn't do if I just set my mind to it (regardless of gender) and to value education.

Notice that the NW area of Pakistan - or that forsaken country in general - has a very poor record on educating women. In the wejerk'nstand area, only three percent of the women are literate, and Pakistan as a whole is quite lacking. Cut to Bangladesh. They made a strong effort to make education available to women. The result is that Bangaladesh is becoming much more civilized and prosperous than the whole of Pakistan. I consider Pakistan to be a bottom feeder of a country, not much more advanced than Afghanistan, the backwater of that part of the world.....

In the whole of the ME, you can see the continual oppression of the female population. Where women enjoy the same freedoms as men - indeed where mothers are honored - the health and vitality of the nation is strong and prospserous.

While the males of the speciies fight, fert, fug, flop and preen themselves as the "stronger gender", women actually make the nests, build relationships with neighbors, train the next generation, and inspire decency and combat moral decay. Men live in visions of soft porn and dreams of inencumbered carnal conquests and threaten to break out in pi$$ing contests at the drop of a teabag.

Worse, they tend to do stupid things like cavort naked with plastic lobsters.

And to be fair, in the history of the world, men have had most of the power. Have they done good stuff. sure they have and you do see that in history books too. But they've also done a lot of crap. Women have been painted as whores and all manner of things too. It's all in how we react to it. we can either bitch and whine about it or just improve the world by being better ourselves.

Life is about Judgement to a degree, the reason history is important to study is so we can learn from the stupid crap we did in the past and that does require a judgment or analysis of some type. On the other hand, continuous apologies for the past is also useless and not healthy. Sometimes killing is justified. People had to die so America could become a country, etc. As for women being whores, yes well men can be too, yet they are never called whores (instead studs), at worst they are man whores which is asinine because whore is not gender specific, it is about selling oneself for money so a man should be just a whore, not a man whore, but whore has become intrinsically linked to the feminine which is crap. And Sex and the City is what it is, I didn't ask you to like it. Now I am done.

Men aren't called whores because women don't pay to have sex with them. That's why they are studs, because they get it for free. When he is paid for it, is nothing more than a common whore. I agree with you there. As for women who get laid for free, they are studs. My wife has slept with ten times as many partners than me. She is not a whore to me because she offers so much more than just that.

A whore is a woman that offers nothing but her body. I just find that sad and a waste of a soul and brain.

I think this is why men call women whores and treat them like second class citizens...because some of them are. When a proud and smart and strong women stands up she is instantly accepted as one of the guys.bloom at you here.

maybe she does. but given the insane amount of avatars not exactly showcasing the female brain on a board about football and a whole thread about the power of its mojo, it isn't us doing most of the talking as a general rule.

There was a line or something in Notting Hill where Julia Roberts asks Hugh Grant what the big deal is about them and of course it's played for humor, but to be honest I don't entirely get it.

I mean partially sure, but in the end it isn't like we spend all our time talking about your guys anatomy. I think guys are more obsessed with their penis then we are.

Indeed, Ms. Eliza Dushku (think I spelled that right) played Faith, Vampire Slayer gone bad on Buffy and Angel (for a couple of cross over episodes). She was good on that, but of course I love that show so I might be biased. My favorite character was probably Spike. I haven't seen Dollhouse, but I hear that's good. She was also in Jay and Silent Bob Strikes back and I think some horror movie called Wrong Turn? Not sure. I do wonder where Sarah Michelle Gellar has gone, seems she hasn't been around as of late. anyway, I liked the show because it was pretty pro-female empowerment, ladies who can take care of themselves, it's nice to see.

She also had a show called Tru Calling, which was okay, but it did have Zach Galifianakis well before he hit it big. Dollhouse was pretty hit or miss. I liked the concept, but honestly, Ms Dushku doesn't really have the acting chops to base that kind of show around. Some of the storylines were awesome, and of course the supporting characters were great, and the show was well written. Joss Whedon is definitely all about the female empowerment.
