Kim Kardashian pens slut-shaming essay, makes a hell of a lot of sense

“I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy.”

It seems the internet has been ALL about Kim Kardashian West for the past 24 hours. After she posted a naked (but censored, we might add) selfie on social media on Monday night, famous and non-famous people alike have voiced their opinions on the matter.

The likes of Bette Midler, Chloe Grace Moretz and Piers Morgan slammed or joked about Kim on Twitter, before she shut that shit down with some seriously epic comebacks. While Miley Cyrus, Bella Thorne and oh-so-wise-for-her-age Rowan Blanchard raised the very valid point; ‘WHY EVERYBODY BE SLUT SHAMING ON INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY?!’.

Not letting anyone else have the final say on the matter, KKW posted an essay on her website this morning explaining her marathon Twitter shading sesh and that, frankly, she doesn’t get why everyone’s so bothered.

“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?!?!”

Damn straight. How come when Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton et. al had their naked photos leaked by a third party, feminists were quick to defend their right to take naked photos, videos, whatever in the privacy of their own home? This double standard when it comes to the Kardashians is something we at Cosmo have raised in the past and still stand by.

“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,” Kim continues.

"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.

Who knew Kimmy K was a budding feminist kween? What with her sharp AF Twitter comebacks and now this, easily the smartest thing we've seen on any of the Kardashians' apps so far, she's proving she's just as much brains as she is anything else. Haters, consider yourselves BURNED.
