Boobquake!!

I love it when women ignore, bend, break, surpass, taunt and laugh at the ridiculous rules and restrictions that the societies we live in attempt to place on us. I especially like it when they and do so in an ultra feminine way.

Boobquake is such a great example of this, I had to share it with you!


Here's the story:
Apparently, Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi stated the following last week: "Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes''

Seriously?! Whahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

Ehem... excuse me...

While most women groups around the world were incensed by this idiotic claim, Jennifer McCreight came up a very creative, in fact down right genius, way to prove this ridiculous man wrong. Boobquake!

Jennifer started a Facebook page inviting women around the world to join her in wearing their most immodest boob showing top or leg showing short shorts yesterday May 26th.

She wrote: "With the power of our scandalous bodies combined, we should surely produce an earthquake. If not, I'm sure Sedighi can come up with a rational explanation for why the ground didn't rumble. And if we really get through to him, maybe it'll be one involving plate tectonics."

More than 70.000 women joined her in this boob-tastic experiment. And no, there was no earthquake in Teheran yesterday and so far none today. Not even a slight tremor, despite the fact that the city sits on a web of fault lines.

So, Jennifer and her "girls" have proven that boobs do not cause earthquakes.

Perhaps the holy man -and I use this term loosely- should change his message and encourage the young men he is trying to protect to take responsibility for their own actions and chastity instead of blaming, vilifying and trying to dis-empower women. Who knows, they just might grow into real men with high morals standards and strength of character, instead angry misogynistic weaklings who can't control themselves.

The look for less...

Remember those Givenchy Couture Spring 2009 lovelies?





Well looky here:


These are from Aldo (UK) and at £ 80, as opposed to God knows how much the Givenchy Couture would have cost, totally attainable. They are also available in black. No perfectly powdery yellow unfortunately, just the black and this off white. But this is not bad. Not bad at all.

We are equal, but not the same...

I started writing a post about how I understand both sides of the debate regarding the launch of Vogue.it's Black, Curvy and Talent websites, but then I changed my mind.

Thing is, we human beings are divers. Each and every one of us is unique, inherently different from everybody else. Each of us of equal value and and importance. This is a fact, not a point of view.

In general the fashion industry and fashion magazines do not reflect diversity. Mostly we see the same faces over and over and over again until the fashion industry is over it and moves on to the next, which in general is just more of the same with a different name. But I say "in general" because, did you know that Vogue is published in 19 countries including India, Japan, Korea, Brazil & Mexico? And therefore, caters to every other ethnic group with group specific versions of Vogue except for black women (and men)?

Fashion magazines are already filled with thin women and established designers. Why not Curvy?  Why not focus specifically on new talent?

"In an ideal world fashion magazines would reflect the diversity of their readers." you say?

Really? Tell me... how big or thick would this magazine have to be, to properly represent each of these three groups plus "mainstream fashion" in equal quantities? Without looking a mess and falling into the trap of doing a bit of everything, but doing nothing really well?

Hmm..Unpractical and poor content? No thanks. Not my money. Not my "ideal world."

Vogue.it is actually doing it right and they're doing a really good job by employing people who know each group well to provide good quality content for and about each group.

Come on people this is a good thing! And about frickin' time!
