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 guess I'd question why you don't see a real person. There's a lot of 'branding' that goes into her image certainly, but she's still human- she's a businessperson like many others. Except unlike the Richard Bransons of the world, people are constantly mocking and criticizing her body, taking pictures of it without her permission and trying to catch her in an unflattering pose because they can exploit it for money. By doing this I think she's taking control of the narrative. Sharing it in her way and on her terms.

@orenshani7 one of the main things about body positivity is to no judge others based on their body. Kim hasn't had butt implants but if she did good for her people do have plastic surgery are just as deserving of respect and self love along with support from other females!!! The problem is when Adam Levine posted a photo of him totally nude except with FEMALE HANDS covering his penis everyone adored it and he received so many positive comments. When a female poses nude (even when she's pregnant) she is considered slutty and an attention whore. I'm so over that double standard
