Do trampy women cause earthquakes? It’s a question I frequently ask and today the answer to this mystery was finally revealed. “A senior Iranian cleric says women who wear immodest clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes” the Associated Press reports. Here is a quote from the article:
“Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes,” Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi was quoted as saying by Iranian media. Sedighi is Tehran’s acting Friday prayer leader.
I don’t even know what to say. I’m speechless.
I mean, how did he know? How did he finally figure out that we, in our glorious slut gear, are responsible for plate tectonics?
This is how it happens: Women go outside revealing a little too much leg, (or if you are in Iran, a little too much wrist). Then, within hours, the earth opens up and swallows an entire city.
It’s that simple. Yet, oddly enough, even my college Geology professor didn’t see the link.
Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi – you’ve really done it! And in your honor, I think it is only right that scientists call your discovery “The Ho Theory of Plate Tectonics.”

You might not expect to see a political or news post on a blog like this one, but when something so big happens like what is going on in Iran, I have to write a thing or two about world events.
In case any of us were uncertain before, it’s pretty clear now that Ahmadinejad is a total psycho. You think you’ve known some crazy men in your life? He makes all of them look normal. Even my craziest exes look charming next to that guy. When he came to New York City in 2007 to speak, the NYPD should have dropped him off on Tremont Avenue in the Bronx and let him find his way to Columbia University on his own. That would have fixed his ass. Living under the current regime in Iran must be hell on earth for so many people to want it to end.
When I was watching the protestors on television, I felt so much admiration for them. Publically protesting a regime that is repressive and dangerous is the ultimate act of courage. But I also couldn’t help but wonder, “If I were in their shoes, would I have the personal strength and will to fight for what I believe in? Would I scurry away and hide or would I stand up against a regime like that one? If I can’t find the courage to tell my friend that I think her boyfriend is the Devil, how in the world would I tell an insane dictator that I want to see him gone?”
I hope that I would have it in me to fight that fight, but I don’t know if I would. I guess none of us really know what we are made of until life puts us to the test. But whether the tests you face are big or small, I commend you if you stand up for what you believe in, especially if your beliefs are unpopular. We all need to defend freedom and remember how lucky we are to have the right to express dissatisfaction with the actions and attitudes of our government. No matter how annoying someone is, or how much we think their opinion sucks, we should be happy they have the right to express it freely. Copyright © 2009 Alison James
