As some of you on Facebook may have noticed, something called “Boobquake” is happening today as a sort of protest against Tehran’s prayer leader who said “Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity, and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes.” (Taken from the Boobquake event page.) So immodestly dressed women cause earthquakes and according to some people, gay sex caused Hurricane Katrina. I’m always bewildered by people who believe this because if it actually worked, women and gays would both have equal rights in a heartbeat. The Human Rights Campaign would just threaten to sponsor a giant gay orgy in front of the Washington Monument unless the federal government struck down DOMA and Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Whenever it was found that a company wasn’t practicing equitable pay, their lobbies would be flooded with topless women until an earthquake destroyed the building. Actually, now I kind of wish all the theories were true because I would have the magical ability to get whatever I wanted by threatening to strip until an earthquake happened. Or by finding myself another lady to get friendly with until a hurricane came along. That’d be kind of awesome. Anyway, here’s what’s on TV tonight:

“Tough Love: Couples” on VH1. I understand that this is a show where people go on VH1 to get relationship counseling and can I ask who, exactly, thinks that’s a good idea? Ooo, I know, let’s go to the network that’s made “Flavor of Love”, “I Love New York”, “Rock of Love” and “Rock of Love: Bus” and ask them what it takes to make a true and lasting commitment to your partner? I’m guessing it has something to do with being a famewhore.
