Let's all laugh at the superstitious primitives
Women dressed immodestly cause earthquakes? What a bunch of primitives the Iranian theocrats are! Why, the next thing you know, they'll be telling their easily-manipulated, superstitious population how divine wrath will soon bring fiery-hot weather, causing famine that reduces women to prostitution in order to survive!
Oh, wait... a different group of superstitious primitives already thought of that one.
