Kim Kardashian: I Love Your International Women's Day Post
Kim Kardashian has actually seriously impressed me with her international women's day post. After posting a nude selfie yesterday (yes I know, not international women's day) she got a lot of heat. Apparently women are only allowed take control of their sexualities and show some body positivity on March 8th. Good to know.
Because after that pic, which is actually flawlessssssss, she was slut shamed by men and women alike.
Now, on a day were women are SUPPOSE TO support one another, Kim Kardashian is again dragged through the mud. Well FUCK THAT.
International Women's Day is a day where we support one another, where we love our bodies, and where if we want to post nudes were gonna #freethatnipple.
Here is Kim's perfect response to the haters and in my opinion seriously sums up the spirit of International Women's Day. Its a bit long but well worth the read.
"Hey, guys. I wanted to write a post elaborating on my tweets last night. In all seriousness, I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives. I don't do drugs, I hardly drink, I've never committed a crime—and yet I'm a bad role model for being proud of my body?
It always seems to come back around to my sex tape. Yes, a sex tape that was made 13 years ago. 13 YEARS AGO. Literally that lonnng ago. And people still want to talk about it?!?! I lived through the embarrassment and fear, and decided to say who cares, do better, move on. I shouldn't have to constantly be on the defense, listing off my accomplishments just to prove that I am more than something that happened 13 years ago. Let's move on, already. I have.
I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me. And I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world. I am empowered by my husband, who is so accepting and supportive and who has given me a newfound confidence in myself. He allows me to be me and loves me unconditionally.
I feel so lucky to have grown up surrounded by strong, driven, independent women. The life lessons I've learned from my sisters, my mother and my grandmother, I will pass along to my daughter. I want her to be proud of who she is. I want her to be comfortable in her body. I don't want her to grow up in a world where she is made to feel less-than for embracing everything it means to be a woman.
It's 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming—it's like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me. I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy.

#happyinternationalwomensday."

@orenshani7 I should have been clearer- I was talking about the way the media criticizes her body, not you specifically. I think our definition of a 'real' body differs. I don't consider surgery to essentially alter a body at all. What if someone needed to change their body for medical reasons (like a hip replacement)? Does the intent of the surgery change the result? I don't think so. I don't appreciate the pressure that people are under to look a certain way, but how people deal with that pressure is up to them. It doesn't make someone less of a person

@shannonl5 , of course a surgery doesn't make one less human. And let Kim do whatever she wants to her body. IMHO what she did is too exaggerated and looks disproportionate and distorted, but maybe it's a matter of taste. Anyway my point was that I don't think she is the best role model for body positively.

@orenshani7 I can definitely see that. I think that's why we need a lot of different role models, so that people can take what they need. There's not really a 'one size fits all' message since we don't all come from the same backgrounds or experience the same things
