My mother said less was more, but not in this case. Kim Kardashian has posted another nude selfie on Instagram. No doubt, there have been some positive remarks, but the public outcry has been just as loud.
My biggest concern was the example she was setting for her children, North and Saint West. Her husband has yet to say his piece about the photo. Don’t these stars have any shame? Not for Kim obviously. It concerned me when Madonna glorified the ‘boy toy’ act in her earlier performing years and started having children. What did they know about their mother’s antics on stage? What will Kim’s children think of seeing their mother’s nude body on Instagram?
Thankfully, this was not one of the problems faced by me. First of all because my body was bigger than a size 10 there was criticism already. The biggest problem was how my words projected to my audience. They should speak for themselves, but not have the intent to hurt others.
Young girls were easily influenced by the stars they idolize, which meant that they were apt to copy the actions of those they like, even send nude photos on Instagram. According to Chloë Moretz the message was garbled.
“I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them, we have so much more to offer than just our bodies,” the 19-year-old actress wrote.
Bette Midler said this on Twitter: “If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna have to swallow the camera.”
Here was what Kim tweeted back: let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo
FYI, that Nylon dig was in response to Moretz’s semi-nude cover in the magazine’s December/January 2015-2016 issue.
What a sniper!
But Breslin and Thorne summed it up nicely taking Kim Kardashian’s side :
Let me rephrase: it isn’t fair to condone one person for expressing their beauty/body and condemn another for doing the same.
Anybody who tries to say how a woman chooses to display their OWN body is wrong, is severely misinformed and misguided.
Obviously, Kim Kardashian had the last laugh. Anyone making snide or negative comments on her nude photos got called out, literally.
