Boobquake t-shirts to benefit charities

Multiple people have been calling for boobquake t-shirts, so I decided to make some really simple ones. 100% of the profit goes to charity, half to the Red Cross (because of their earthquake relief) and half to JREF (for supporting critical thinking and fighting supernatural claims). Go check them out:

Who says science has to be boring?
Did the Earth move for you?
Modestly dressed women seldom make earthquakes
I survived boobquake
Hm, that last one may be a bit premature. We still may all perish in tank-top induced apocalypse.

    Order the last one anyway, folks, if you don’t survive the boobquake, it’ll still be in the mail!

    Great choice of charities, Jen; this is a good idea.

    I dunno, those shirts don’t look immodest enough to help the experiment. Unless you hose ‘em down.

    You should make one that show a very good amount of cleavage and says “Alleged earthquake generator.”

    I am a big fan of the Red Cross Disaster services program. I am excited to see that part of the proceeds will be going there! I may have to have one of each… these rock!

    If only these had been available sooner. We’re never going to get them in time for Monday!

    Dear Jen,You rule. Weird, I know, to get all this attention (I’m hoping it’s all positive but my cynical side knows that’s not going to happen). Just remember: you rule!Love, Megan

    I just want to say, well done! And I, Gwenny the Pooh, titular leader of the Cult of Gwenny the Pooh’s Tits, give my full, ahem, support to this Boobquake and the support of my cultists. (Sorry, my cult page went down when geocities went down and I haven’t bothered to find someplace else to host it, or I would invite you all to join.)

    Im an iranian guy who also thinks this guy is insane…but just one thought… the real thing that he said was unmarried couples having sex (Zena) will INCREASE earthquakes, and it does not make earthquakes happen right away… so just wearing those cloths wont make anything happen (in his idea). and also, lots of sex in ONE society will increase earthquakes, not some women wearing shirts without having any sex with someone who they are not involved with in many places of the world wont make anything happen.not having sex wont lead to no earthquakes and everyday having sex wont lead to everyday earthquakes….I think you should try to pay more attention in the future. your idea is as syupid as his…i love an answer please…

    I don’t speak for the author of this blog, but I imagine that this event is only meant to be a silly response to a stupid statement. We all know that no kind of expression of human sexuality can have any effect whatsoever on the frequency or occurrence of earthquakes, so getting the fine details right seems like a moot point.It’s just a bit of fun at the expense of a stupid man, that’s all.

    Jen, this is such a great idea! Thanks for your humour and action.

    Promiscuity (among other things) has led to the current population explosion of almost 7 billion. But you’d need a lot more people than that for our combined weight to affect the tectonic plates and cause earthquakes!

    “the real thing that he said was unmarried couples having sex (Zena) will INCREASE earthquakes”No, what he said was women cause men to lose their inhibitions by dressing in a manner that can be seen as “immodest”. This is blaming the women, pure and simple, for the failing of men to keep their pants zipped, and throwing in earthquakes as a guilt trip.”and it does not make earthquakes happen right away”So long as it happens and someone called dibs, it’s automatically connected. Causation/correlation fallacy.”and also, lots of sex in ONE society will increase earthquakes”Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha–no. Fundamentally misunderstanding how geology works does not mean anyone can shoehorn supernatural causes into them. Pat Robertson got it wrong with Haiti, Sedighi gets it wrong with promiscuous women. As well, there is no evidence outside what some men have stated on this matter, leading to a lack of credibility on any claim that intimate human relations that some god or another doesn’t like, causes geological instability.”I think you should try to pay more attention in the future. your idea is as syupid as his…”This is a great idea, because it’s on the same level of silliness as a holy man blaming the women for everything.

    I’m a believer and I think this is great! Hilarious! As a man and a fighter in uniform of this type of “Nut Bag Fundamentalism,” I am truly looking forward to the “Boobquake.” All of my Marine friends are onboard as well!

    I love this!!!! I was reading the New York Post here at work and saw your blog in it! I loved it, very clever, funny and all around important! I mean come on compare the way we dress today to how people dressed hundreds of years ago! For example in the movies; 300, Troy, Cyclopes… etc. people didn’t wear much clothes and i’m sure they didn’t have that many quakes. But out here in California you get use to them! :)

    so glad you went with tank tops and not tube tops.

    “I feel the earth move under my boobs” came to my mind while I was looking through the t-shirts ;)

    Love the shirts and the charity, but you gotta be shaking your head…..how did the inhabitants of a this country allow idiots like the cleric gain control……..people this stupid in the puruit of nuclear weapons should concern all of us….in the name of the peace all the women of Iran should hang the puppies out and shake the country to an earthquake that would wipe out the clerics and the government ……

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours Boobquake t-shirts to benefit charities | Blag Hag. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
