Kim Kardashian has posted another nude selfie and the internet has become very upset about it.
Let's take a look back at the last time Kim posted something of this nature and try not to go from 0 - judgmental in 60 seconds.
Kim Kardashian is in my life whether I really want her to be or not. As someone who works in fashion media, there isn't a day that goes by when I don't encounter her name or photo. And to be honest, sometimes it starts to feel old —no matter how entertaining her selfies are, or how adorable little North is (and North is CUTE). But Kim's latest Instagram, made me think about her differently. In short, it made me see her more as a person than a cartoon. Someone with actual feelings.
And that's saying a lot when you consider this is the woman who broke the Internet with that now famously unreal looking Paper magazine cover.
One thing you can never accuse Kim Kardashian of is being shy. She's been a controversial role model for a number of reasons. I don't know many (if any) women who would post a fully nude image of themselves for 42 million people to see, I certainly would not.
And ordinarily I would quickly scroll past an image of a naked Kim with a big yawn. But today, as I checked my Instagram for the 40th time (I told you I work in media, it's for work!), I actually stopped and looked. For one, this image had a longer caption than her usual 'Kanye and me.' And when I took the time to read her words, I found myself agreeing. I never really thought me and Kim had much in common.
This post wasn't a, 'Hey look at me and my ass' attention grab, this was a, 'Hey look at my changing body. I'm pregnant and I'm beautiful.' And most importantly, she's telling the world she doesn't care what you think about it. Some of you may already know my thoughts about body positivity. I've always believed, if you are confident and happy in the skin you are in, share it and encourage people to feel the same way about their body.
And here, Kim is doing exactly that: 'Every body is different, every pregnancy is different! I've learnt to love my body at every stage! I'm going to get even bigger and that's beautiful too!' Hear, hear Kim.
