While scrolling through Instagram I came across several posts commenting on Kim Kardashian West’s latest Instagram photos. They didn’t leave much to the imagination. I believe that in this day and time we as women should be allowed to express ourselves as we see fit.
As a woman I, refuse to be placed in just one box. For instance I am not just a mother. I am not just a wife. I am a writer. I am a seashell collector. I am a multimedia journalist. I am a lover of all things dealing with Black History and Culture. I am many things; never embracing just one of my many talents, qualities or interests. I think this should be true for all women.
But I don’t believe in order to be seen we have to reveal everything. Currently women all over the world are battling it out for equal pay as men, safe work environments: free of sexual harassment and etc. and here we have Kim Kardashian West sharing her breasts on social media.
Is this her way of being business savvy?
Kim Kardashian West has 106 million followers on Instagram and I believe should would have the same amount of followers minus the risque photos. The old adage “Sex Sells” is ever present in this scenario, but is it really necessary?
The news of a third addition to the West family was recently released. Is this an attempt to hold on to her pre-mom days? or is this just an attempt to gain attention?
Attention seeking is defined as behaving in a way which is in pursuit of attention from others. The attention they receive gives them a good feeling and boosts their self-esteem and self-worth.
If that is indeed the case I guess Kim Kardashian West accomplished what she set out to accomplish. I am not a follower of hers, yet I dedicated this post to her photos.
In the end the biggest question I have is if there is undeniable talent and skill within the individual in question then is there a need to “Sell Sex” ?
This is my opinion and mine alone. Please feel free to share your thoughts, comments and concerns respectively. Thanks in advance.
