Quote of the Day: Kim Kardashian Naked and Touting Faux Empowerment

Hey, did you hear Kim Kardashian got naked again? (Yeah, I know — stop the presses.) Kardashian apparently needed some attention, so she posted a completely pointless naked picture of herself on her Instagram, with a twee little caption about having nothing to wear, LOL!. This, it seems, is the key to all of Kardashian’s success. She has no talent, so she rode a sex tape to fame and then every time that fame starts to wane, she drops trou again. It’s sad, because it’s so clearly done out of desperation. Various media personalities, including Bette Midler and Piers Morgan, chimed in, which led Kardashian to post a ludicrous, rambling statement about how her being naked all the time equals empowerment, or something.

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.

She closed with #happyinternationalwomensday, because, you know, she’s all feminist and stuff.

Let’s first dive into the social media posts in question. Here’s Kim’s nude selfie that was, like, totes empowering:

When you're like I have nothing to wear LOL

Do we really have to pretend she did this because she’s, like, so empowered? Let’s just call it what it is: a pathetic attempt to get attention. And it worked: other celebrities quickly chimed in. Legendary singer Bette Midler kicked things off, with the insult that launched hundreds of thousands of retweets:

Next was, of all people, Piers Morgan.

Finally, up-and-coming actress Chloe Grace Moretz tweeted.

Kardashian, capitalizing on the chance to garner some headlines, fired back at all of them.

So now you’re all caught up on the social media furor, and probably wondering why in the hell any of this even matters. Here’s why: because Kardashian, a no-talent famewhore famous for nothing but screwing a guy on tape and taking her clothes off every chance she gets, turned perfectly sensible criticisms into “slut-shaming” and wanting to disempower women. Kardashian is a plague on American culture. Yes, it was already in the gutter, but she implores us to wallow in the filth while calling it empowerment.

Kardashian’s screed about empowerment tells us to stop bringing up her sex tape, that she shouldn’t have to list her “accomplishments”. What are those, exactly? And why is it we’re supposed to forget the sex tape? She is famous for that sex tape, she used it to her advantage to create a career as a reality TV star, and has accomplished nothing of any value whatsoever since. She has no talent, she adds absolutely nothing to the American landscape, and yet we’re all supposed to pretend she did something to deserve the fame bestowed upon her? Please. She acts as if her sex tape should be off-limits, yet she’s the one that continually sells sex (because, let’s be honest, it’s all she has to sell). She points out that she’s a wife and a mother, yet those titles haven’t convinced her to change her behavior even a tiny bit.

It’s great that Kardashian feels confident and is proud of her body. (Of course, considering the amount of money she’s spent on plastic surgery to attain that body, she damn well should.) But that doesn’t mean she needs to constantly pose naked every chance she gets. Criticizing her penchant to show off the goodies every time she needs attention isn’t body-shaming or slut-shaming. It’s calling it what it is: desperation fed by an obsessive, narcissistic need to always be the topic of conversation. It actually calls into question just how much confidence she actually has in herself.

What makes this entire situation relevant to everyone, though, is one of the things Kardashian says herself in her screed. “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,” she wrote. “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.”

And here we’ve reached the crux of the problem. Kim Kardashian and this whole furor are but a symptom of a large problem. Thanks to modern “feminism”, which has utterly destroyed whatever was left of actual feminism, this is the kind of thing that passes for empowerment. Women posing naked, women sleeping with as many guys as possible, women having multiple abortions, women devaluing themselves: this is what we’re told being a strong woman entails. Kim Kardashian poses naked over and over and over again, and we aren’t allowed to see it for the tragedy tale that it is. No, we’re instead told that this is what empowerment means. (Don’t believe me? Just read what the feminazis at Jezebel had to say about this whole thing.) Nope, in today’s world, thanks to “feminists”, Kardashian is a role model. Embracing “everything it means to be a woman” evidently means also embracing hyper-sexuality paired with a penchant for exhibitionism. This is what we want our daughters to emulate?

Instead of calling this what it is — a sad, desperate attempt to remain relevant at any costs — we lie and make it something positive. Instead of calling women to a higher standard, feminazis have insisted on dragging women down to the lowest possible one. The problem, according to so-called feminists, was that men were allowed to sleep around and behave badly, without any consequences. But they didn’t insist that men be held to a higher standard. They decided to shove women down into the mud instead. Now, a few decades later, what do we have? We have Kim Kardashian, famous for a sex tape, posing naked every chance she gets, and the world calls it empowerment. Kim Kardashian poses naked on Instagram, and feminazis are praising her for her Very Feminist Act.

This is why the utterly ridiculous dust-up between Kardashian and the other celebrities matters. Because this is the world we have to raise our daughters in. Kardashian wants her daughter to grow up “embracing everything it means to be a woman”, and apparently, in today’s world, that means making yourself as sexually desirable and available as possible. It means having no modesty, no class, no dignity, no integrity, no shame — and no tolerance for anyone saying anything to the contrary. It’s an utterly depressing look at what feminism has done to women. We should be telling our daughters, and women as a whole, that we’re worth more than this. But no — Kardashian, with an army of self-proclaimed feminists behind her, devalue women while dressing it up as empowerment. How do we protect our daughters from this? How do we teach them they’re better than this, that they should demand better than this, when everything in our culture says otherwise?

If you aren’t scared for your daughters yet, you should be.

    Accomplishments? Please do list them, because I’ve never seen any.

    The thing is, she isn’t even truly attractive, imho. But, hey, if she’s gonna flaunt it, guys will definitely look.

    It means having … no shame

    The lack of real shame in our society today is its primary problem.

  • Deanna Fisher says:

    She talks a lot about her daughter. Seems to forget that she also has a son. Just wait until her son’s friends someday “discover” pictures and video of his mother naked all over the internet.

  • Kate says:

    You’re rich, Kim. You have lots of clothes in your closet. Put some on.

  • Elizabeth Wise says:

    If she was so fearful and embarrased why is she STILL throwing naked pics of herself out there? Yep, she is trolling for attention. Kanye must not be doing his job.

  • Heather says:

    Reality TV is not accomplishment. She is nothing more that an over glorified porn star. If she wants to show what being empowered is then fire her assistants, maids, & cooks and start taking care of her own family with her own two hands and stop taking selfies nude or not. She is famous for one reason she let a tape get out of her spreading her legs.

  • Joe Miller says:

    Not to brag or anything, but I’m pretty empowered by my own body. I just don’t think everybody wants to see it. I could be wrong.

    I finally saw the pic. If you put big black bars across everything, what’s the point of a naked selfie? Oy.
