Kim Kardashian is at it again, you guys. She’s trying to create (kreate) another viral moment, this time with Emily Ratajkowski. I’m not going to post the photo, but you can see the NSFW image here on Kim’s Twitter. Kim and Emily are both posing topless and flipping the bird at their “haters,” I guess. Emily was a vocal supporter of Kim during the controversy a few weeks ago, when Kim posted a semi-nude photo and everyone freaked the hell out and started body policing her. Emily defended Kim’s right to do what she wanted with her body, and Emily once again took to Twitter to take a pro-nudity/empowerment stance. Emily tweeted:
However sexual our bodies may be, we need to hve the freedom as women to choose whn & how we express our sexuality.
We are more than just our bodies, but that doesn’t mean we have to be shamed for them or our sexuality. #liberated
Even if being sexualized by society’s gaze is demeaning, there must be a space where women can still be sexual when they choose to be.
“Why demonize female sexuality if only to keep us in the dark about the power and beauty of our bodies?” @guerrillafem
As I’ve said before, I agree with Kim and with Emily. The reaction to Kim’s selfie took a turn from playfully judgy to prudish body-policing. Many disagree and that’s fine too. #liberated
Meanwhile, did you hear that Kim and Kanye have FINALLY moved out of Kris Jenner’s house? Kim and Kanye have lived at Kris’s house for three years… so says TMZ. I actually think it’s been longer than that. They originally planned to stay with Kris while their first home was being renovated, but they ended up discarding that property and buying another house, then they had to renovate that one. Basically, all North West and Saint West have ever known is Kris Jenner’s house. Still, TMZ says that Kim and Yeezy are planning on flipping this Bel Air home too, so their residency there will probably be short-lived. So, Kris better keep her guest rooms open.

Kim doesn’t ever wear that God-awful painted Hermes bag Kanye gave her, does she?
She’s only used it once, just after he gave it to her. After that, no. She must think it’s tacky as hell (which it is).
Yet she wears that tacky-ass coat with her face on it all the time. Maybe that’s where Kanye went wrong-if he had given her a hand-painted bag with her face or even better yet a nude pic of Kim on it, she’d be using it every day.
I’m pretty sure one of the hand-painted bags did have her naked on it – along with her sisters – but it was impressionist. Which is no bueno.
@CharlotteCharlotte-Yeah I googled it beforehand because I wasn’t sure if it was supposed to be her or not. If it was supposed to be a portrait, it was a terrible unflattering one.
So yeah, Kim won’t be advertising anything that makes her look less than perfect and sexy.
You’re assuming Kim can recognize tacky.
Hahah thanks for the laugh Lady D!
Emily has been a feminist icon to me ever since her groundbreaking bumping and grinding in the “Blurred Lines” video, shaking her booty to a cheery song that referenced Robin Thicke damaging someone’s bottom during an@al s@ex because he is so well endowed. And now she’s getting her kit off with Kimmy! It’s just too much empowerment for me to take. I don’t take selfies, but inspired by Emily and Kim, I’m going to take all my clothes off and press myself up against the window so passers by can get an eyeful. Women of the world unite!
Step aside, Steinem!
Omg this thread is KILLING ME TODAY! Thank you all for the laughs!!
Anne Tommy – you are a rock star! You should start writing for Celebitchy!!
Thank you Tris, I could do with some gainful employment at the moment!
I just don’t understand this. I really don’t. This woman just can’t go a week without all the attention being on here. And if anyone calls her out for being attention seeking, we’re the bad guys.
You must be hanging around with the wrong people. Nearly everyone here can’t stand her.
Regardless of whether nearly everyone here can’t stand her, she’s still getting plenty of attention here.
@ Sam: I agree, it’s not the nakedness most people seem to mind but the shameless attention seeking and fame whoring. So annoying…
Also, claiming to promote body positivity when you had every inch of your body tweaked is just ridiculous.
There is nothing liberating or body positive about posing naked. Playboy & Penthouse & porn movies have always done it. These women are doing it for attention. Period. I fail to find anything empowering about their attention seeking SELFIES. They are empowering no one and the only conversations they are forwarding are oooo Kim & Emily posed topless.
@Cran YOU SAID IT BEST! Thank you
@Sam don’t worry I’m sure some can see through the web of lies created by Pimp Mama Kris. I agree with Ivy feeling liberated & proud of her body will going to the “dermatologist” to change said body. She’s a walking contradiction, someone proud of her body will post a pic of herself with no photoshop. That won’t ever happen.
My question is why are they taking topless pic in what looks like the public bathroom at a movie theater?
@V4Real HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Maybe Pimp Mama Kris banned them from her bathroom, first Kylie can have her bathroom photoshoot then Kendall you guys can go last.
Want body positivity? Watch Broad City or Crazy Ex Girlfriend, ironically.
Want your brain cells to die off quickly and permanently? Watch these Kardashian and Kardashian-inspired vapid (literal) posers.
YES! Broad City is the best, people really need to watch that show. I’ve heard of Crazy Ex GF but haven’t really started watching.
The whole cast of Broad City are my favorite, I binge watched that show. No regrets about my life.
Which is why the best thing to do is ignore her – I would love it if media would cover them a lot less.
Why does Kim get all that work done on her face and use expensive makeup. Just to cover up half her face with those oversized sunglasses? I have noticed Kris and Khloe do the same thing.
Honestly with 50 flash bulbs in my face all the time, id wear sunglasses too.
I think it also keeps from squinting and getting wrinkles. When I don’t wear sunnies, the 11 between my eyebrows stays deep for 2 days. Yay 30s.
It never crossed my mind about the flashbulbs. That would be annoying. I just find the size of the sunglasses seem so large for her face
That was me yesterday because I forgot my shades 🙁
Don’t tell me this!! I wear my glasses every day, so I don’t wear sunglasses and I squint all the time. I guess I need to invest in some prescription shadies.
Also good for covering up plastic surgery bruises etc.
There is a difference between being a feminist and a narcissist.
Both these two haven’t really understood the word Feminist and what it stands for.
@Maya I agree with you, the way I see it it’s just an excuse for talentless women who want to stay relevant. They want feminism? Do something that helps women so you can feel “liberated”, taking your clothes off is just a lazy way of padding yourself in the back and scream I’m a feminist
I have nothing against topless pics and whatnot but these two just found an excuse to do it. Theirs is not empowerment, it’s narcissistic
Well said! Huge difference between empowerment and narcissism.
Well said – it’s empowerment if you take your clothes of in support of something like cancer, masectomy, childbirth, scars etc.
And it’s called narcissism when you take your clothes of just to show off your body and get people to admire it.
Right? Maybe protest Trump wanting to punish women for abortions. Something “feminist”. #liberatedmyass. Oh and flipping off – klassy.
its celebrity feminism. it will always get spun the way they need it boost their profile or deflect criticism.
neither of them has any kind of talent or smarts thats why they are naked, not because they are progressive.
getting naked is no skill and most people forget that you need to be conventionally good looking. thats a huge privilege.
Totally agree. And please. People were NOT “body-policing” Kim. It all started with Bette Midler’s joke about how often she posts photos of herself. Nobody cares how she expresses her sexuality. People are just sick of her narcissism. It makes me so annoyed that’s she’s hiding behind feminism and people are buying into it. Look who she’s married to! How he speaks to and about women and you will see exactly how feminist she’s not. A feminist wouldn’t be with a man like Kanye.
Finally. You said it, I couldn’t say it better.
This is NARCISSISM not Feminism.
And if in a few months or years people’s young daughters start posting naked photos of themselves online (as if that didn’t happen already) because #Feminism we’ll blame it on everything under the sun but Kim and the likes… And they won’t be doing it because “freedom” they will be doing it to get retweets, likes and comments. So what is the real point?!?!?!?
Be naked, by all means. But there’s a better way IMO.
PS – I don’t have a problem with nude photos, or their bodies, but I don’t agree with pointless attention-seeking images.
Yes! Yes! Yes!
All of this. So much. Kim’s schtick is the very opposite of feminism. Taking her opinion seriously from a feminist standpoint just nullifies all discussions weve had about it.
Kim doesnt even care. But feminism is a hot gossip blog subject so of course she’s selling herself as the new Hannah Arendt. And people are buying it. Ugh.
Yes. Feminism doesn’t mean being above criticism. I don’t know if there is really a male version of this for comparison sake but I think if there was he’d get the same sort of criticism. At this point this seems to be all Kim does. Her body isn’t the issue.
I was actually trying to see if Celebitchy has ever posted on Chelsea Handler’s free the nipple instagram thing, I’m not sure if they have. That actually seems to be about feminism but she has faced a ton of criticism.
+10000000 Yes, yes, yes! You said it perfectly.
I listened to Peggy Orenstein on Fresh Air talking about girls and sexuality and she was all about this topic. Why is it one or the other (liberated nude/oppressed clothed)? Why is our self-expression being anchored to our bodies/sexual attractiveness? She actually deconstructed the argument: teenaged girls would tell her, “I dress this way because I’m proud of my body,” but then that pride seemed to go away as their clothes came off/when they gained five pounds. Meaning that it was very much ephemeral and subject to conditioning. So…not quite #liberation.
Anyway, it was a really interesting conversation.
PS-I don’t care at all what Kim posts on Instagram. Post nothing but nudes–fine with me (and I think it’s weird for anyone to take offense. What do you expect her to post?) Just don’t play like you’re doing feminism because #nood.
Some good points made, thank you!
I love Fresh Air when I can catch it. Very relevant topics with interesting takes. I am going to try to find this. Thanks.
Seconding Malina’s thank you! I think I’ll also have to look this one up, Orenstein’s take sounds spot-on.
Maya’s original comment and the following discussion makes me so happy. So much truth.
Greenie, I think her posts are concerning for people worried about their daughters (and sons) growing up with this as a prevalent model of behaviour. I am.
I heard this interview as well, and this post had me pondering the same thing. Yes, the study showed that as soon as a young girl gains 5 pounds she doesn’t find “showing her body/sexuality” liberating or feminist anymore, so they went a step further and looked at WHY. They pointed out that a woman’s body and sexuality is only ONE part of who she is, as a woman, and while being proud of her body and showing it off (sexually or not) can be an expression of liberation, it is only a very small element of who a woman IS, in total. It is troubling that women in the media tend to use sexuality as a symbol of feminism because it plays into the tendency for women to be reduced to ONLY their sexuality/body, ignoring and devaluing their other contributions to the world. Women need to recognize they are FAR MORE than this. Feminism is standing up for equality in ALL aspects, not just our ability to express our sexuality if we want to.
Thank you for pointin’ this out! She is such an embarrassment for the real feminists. Her thirsty exhibitionism has nothing common with true achievements of hard-working women . She just wants to be praised for her plastic body. And she uses feminism as convenient cover.
lol, that’s true.
“We are more than just our bodies.” Fine. Prove it.
No kidding. I hate the “liberated” nude pics that are posted simply for attention and admiration. No, seeking validation from others is not liberating, no matter how you go about it. Claiming that women are more than their bodies (which I agree with strongly) and then doing absolutely nothing but continue to post sexy pictures where we are supposed to admire said body is pretty stupid. Where’s your brain, your heart, your compassion, your drive to do good in the world? Oh, right, you can’t take a picture of that and get attention on instagram for it. Silly me.
That is what so many are trying to say. She hasn’t shown us anything but her body. Nothing. No one cares about her nakedness, we are just for something else to be revealed, such as authenticity.
Let the church say Amen.
Two dummies in a naked pod. They are desperate and sad.
Also re: “Even if being sexualized by society’s gaze is demeaning, there must be a space where women can still be sexual when they choose to be.”
That space is usually called, one’s home? I maintain that I would be just as appalled if some guys decided to show their wares in public like that.
And if they’re saying they want the same right to go topless as men, I didn’t realize that feminism was about the right to bare our breasts. However if they’re really saying, we want the right to be naked in public, that’s cool but their message is not feminist, it’s nudist.
I wish we were all #liberated from the Kardashians.
I fear at this point, that will never happen.
That’s how it always feels. I remember when we couldn’t wait for the spice girls to go away, Britney to vanish and remember Heidi and Spencer? The Klan will fade eventually.
I believe interest is waning…………..just not fast enough…………
It’s the slowest circling the drain I can recall.
I agree that some of the comments I saw (not on here) about it were too much but…. I have a hard time thinking this is about anything other than getting attention for themselves.
Women of course shouldn’t be told what they can and cannot show, but the likes of Kim project an image that looks and body are ALL a woman has to offer or at the very least it is the most important thing and quickest route, want attention? pose naked. Their entire existence is about superficiality and vacuousness.
I’m sorry but that is not feminist to me, and neither is this.
But if she wants to be known for nothing but her body, and if she wants to project a shallow image, she has every right. Backwards, but still feminist. It doesn’t really matter if that is what feminism is *to you.
Well that’s my opinion, like I said.
I don’t believe she is doing this for feminism to to improve the standing of women in society, she’s just tacked on the feminist tag because its convenient and she can wheel out the anti feminist argument if someone disagrees with it
Backwards but NOT feminist……………there is NOTHING feminist about going backward.
oh man this choice feminism needs to die. not every choice a woman makes is feminist.
the media has a huge influence on all people so no she cant just do whatever she wants without being called out.
Yes, it does matter. You can’t hide behind “I’m a woman and you have to agree with me or you’re not a feminist.” Yes, if she wants to be nothing but a shallow sexual object, that’s her choice, but it’s NOT feminism.
The fact that two women known very much for their perfect boobs decided to pose topless is not lost on me either, you know?
It’s not as if we’re not continually bombarded with pics of women with huge, usually surgically-enhanced breasts on a daily basis.
Empowering to me would be a woman with a wonk nipple or mastectomy scars, or different-sized boobs, saggy older boobs, or just a small chest, posing topless. To me, that would be a feminist move because it would be saying “Hey, maybe my boobs don’t look like Emily whatever-the-hell-her-name-is but I’m still proud of my body and I’m here to say that even without a perfect set, I’m still beautiful.”
But “Look at my killer knockers while I flip you off” well, not so much.
She can do what she wants. I’m not sure why I have to hear about it though. The reason I knew about this selfie is because Facebook told me this morning on the trending topics section, not even because of the gossip sites.
I’m just going to leave this here:
You can get back to me later.
Totally agree! In what way is this liberating? One is a model known for her perfect boobs, that everyone knows because she danced topless next to a bunch of older, fully dressed guys in a creepy music video. Was that liberating too?
The other one has nipped and tucked her face and body that she doesn’t even look like herself. Both have covered magazines. Both are seen as pretty in our society. Both are what girls/young women want to look like.
If Kim would invite women of different shapes, colour and age to take those kind of selfies – maybe THEN I would give her the benefit of a doubt. Maybe.
@LizzieMcG: That is the first time I have ever heard Kim’s voice. It would drive me right up the wall to have to listen to that all day, or even over lunch.
@Lizzy McGuire – unbelievable! Says it all doesn’t it.
I will post this every time someone tries to defend Kim K, I mean she said this herself & no one is making it up.
I just clicked on the link, too, Lizzie… I don’t even know what to say.
It’s a little late, but I only came across this related thingy the other day:
That she thinks we are as stupid as she is explains why people aren’t buying her brand of empowerment.
@Lizzie, you go girl!!!
@Lizzie. That voice and her fake crying and outrage just sums so much up. smh
Meh, remove the black lines and free the nipple!
Liberated yet also obviously too embarrassed to show off her post baby tummy until she’s lost enough weight/had surgery. Show us that and then I’ll believe in her “liberation.” It’s not liberation in my book if you only show off the traditionally “sexy” parts.
Exactly. Just how “liberated” are you when you repeatedly go under the knife to transform your natural self into Jessica Rabbit? Not that she doesn’t have the right to do it and be proud of the results, but it isn’t exactly “liberated” in my opinion.
I normally have no use for either of them, but for some reason I find myself weirdly supportive of this friendship.
A small child will repeatedly do the same thing when they know they’re getting attention. Her mind seems to have morphed to that stage and she’s stuck in it. She has become a daily comic strip whose content has lost all relevancy and you skip over it and read the obituaries because they are more interesting.
It’s like, “What’s Marmaduke going to do today?”
Justin Bieber takes naked selfies all the time no one screams fowl.The thing with Kim is not a feminist issue more like an insensitive issue to those around her who are less fortunate either by looks or fortune.To be more clear people are jealous of her because she robs it in their face.
Which is EXACTLY why feminism has nothing to do with image, or degrading oneself, or being shallow, or getting surgery.
It’s equality between the sexes. Everyone, male or female, has a right to make an *a$s of oneself.
You must be very young. You don’t remember what it what like before, or else you’ve forgotten. In my twenties, I told my boss, who I saw as a father figure that I found a lump in my breast and asked him to recommend a doctor, which he did. After my appointment he said to me, “Dr. Adams asked me if I found the lump.” So my boss and my doctor were laughing about my scare and talking about my breasts. And I felt so ashamed, as if I had been such a fool and such a slut to mention my breasts to him that of course he felt free to make jokes about having sex with me. I could tell you ten more stories with the exact same theme. Being treated as a sexual object has EVERYTHING to do with equality. You are just wrong.
@GNAT-That’s f*cking repulsive. I want to find that guy and punch him in the nuts for you.
PS-Are you feeling better?
I just took my iron pill and thought of you.
@Kitten, I just wish I had known then that he was so wrong to say that and that it wasn’t my fault. The jerk.
Omg, I feel SO much better! The iron infusions take a while to work, but they finally kicked in and yesterday I ran up a flight of stairs. A month ago I couldn’t walk up the same stairs without feeling faint. It’s heaven. Thank you for being so thoughtful about it! I hope you have yours under control now?
@gnat. I’m actually 33. That’s terrible and awful. I’m so sorry that happened to you.
Commenting this morning, i was literally cracking up, like breaking down, from both the kids not sleeping until 5 and literally at the end of my rope, reading gossip until everyone stopped crying. I really just didn’t care what Kim or the Pope did.
I’m torn on the issue. Because yes, the whole point of feminism is indeed to finally be seen as more than a sex object. It’s about equality. We are people, not tits. But then a body is just clinically yes, just a body, and there’s nothing wrong with showing breasts, or knees, or whatever, because why hide it because we are women too? And being told to cover up and being reprimanded for showing skin doesn’t get anyone anywhere, it does send us backwards too. But then if she is on parading in the nude, someone is considered a sex object, degrading herself. It’s everyone’s choice to be a douche or a great person, but some just solidify the objectification a little more and make it harder. It’s a catch 22, and a hard journey. There will be a lot of back and forth for years until it finally evens up.
So sorry if I offended anyone. I got sleep and read my comments and I seemed more affirmed in them I am in real life. My devils advocate stance looked a little more hardcore. Anyway. Being a woman is f#”&ing hard.
@Wiffie, oh, that’s such a tough way to start your day, I’m so sorry. I hope your children aren’t sick? Please don’t worry, you certainly didn’t offend me, and you made a valid point. After I said what I did, I realized that you were not saying that it’s ok for a woman to be viewed as a sex object, just that it’s ok to make an informed decision about the clothes you do or don’t wear. My story didn’t even really apply because there’s a difference between what happened to me – being viewed as an object without my permission – and choosing for yourself to present yourself in a sexual way. So I was responding to something you didn’t even say, and I hate it when people do that to me. The idea that it didn’t matter just hit a nerve, but I see now that you didn’t mean it that way. You try to get some rest, and I hope your children are better or sleepier tonight! Take care. ❤️
I don’t recall a wave of awe and approval for Bieber’s naked selfies.
I don’t remember admiration either. They are both unnecessary and attention whorish. But hey, they have a right to post them.
Yeah I think everyone was horrified by those pics.
The Bieber is and became famous for other things than taking nude selfies. He mainly makes money with music. Kim became famous for doing a porn video, nude photoshoots (Playboy et al, anyone?) and, yeah, selfies with no clothes on. You can’t really compare those two cases.
I don’t care about either of those people, just to be clear.
I am so not jealous of her in any way. Not even close. I am not less fortunate in any way either. There is nothing this woman has or possesses that I covet.
I simply find her ridiculous and desperate. She exemplifies everything about pop culture I sometimes can’t stand.
Am I jelly? Nope x Nope.
They think they are rich and maybe better than others, but just give it time. Greed and narcissism seems be the foundation of their existence.
agree! these two are thirsty. both are clearly desperate for attention… its weird how people keep insisting kim is getting slut shamed … no shes not.
People make fun of JB all of the time for his exhibitionist behavior. Where have you been? Let’s not make this an argument about who out attention seeks the other. They both do it and get called on it.
CHICKEN PEACOCK CROW TURKEY
….I screamed fowl.
I just spit out my coffee!
*makes note of tegteg’s comment*
I am totally stealing that. Best comment today.
lol..that was cute 🙂
Screaming fowl as well. And still giggling, TegTeg.
Haha. Yes!! Thank you. I thought the exact same thing. I know I’ll get jumped on for being the grammar/spelling police but that stuff drives me crazy.
Except many people were critical of Bieber’s naked selfies.
Right? Those butt pics are horrible & no one wants to see them either. He & Kim are perfect for each other, sorry Kanye & Kourtney.
Bette Middler even made a comment about it.
@Daphne anytime your argument is or includes “jealousy”, guess what? – you have no argument. That is the most ridiculous, childish response someone can give to defend someone. I am sick of that being the go to now a days. The minute someone gets criticism they don’t like they scream jealousy in order to shut the conversation down so they can’t be held responsible for their own actions (or the actions of others, like you defending Kim ). As far as I’m concerned these women can pose topless or bottomless or whatever, all day long but claiming feminism, liberation or whatever they have used to excuse their attention seeking ways, doesn’t mean they are free from criticism and it doesn’t make anyone less of a feminist, a women or person if they decide to criticism them.
Yes, this ^^^^
Thank you. It’s the argument of a 12 year old. Next she’ll say I’m rubber, you’re glue.
This times a million. I think we should just ignore these kinds of comments in the future. “You’re just a jelly h8ter” doesn’t deserve a response as well-written and thoughtful as Tify’s
It amazes me how many times the ‘you’re jealous’ or ‘you think that because she’s pretty/wealthy/etc.’ is used. And it is completely juvenile and hollow.
Really I remember bieber being mocked, judged and forced to apologize for those picks. I mean the size of his penis is now a long running joke. It’s not like he was applauded for doing this. Let’s not try to make something up here.
Would it be wrong of me to point out that no one screams fowl because he’s not a bird?
edit: After further reading, I did try to cancel this comment.
Kim is probably standing on North’s step stool. Ha They must have completely enjoyed all the attention they received a few weeks back because they are forcing us to remember.
Yes, women most definitely should be able to embrace their sexuality without being judged. But let’s be real here-sex is pretty much the only thing these two have to sell and they’re not doing it for liberation no matter how many hashtags they use. And has been mentioned before, Kim seems to have no problem listening to her husband soundly cut down other women for the same things she pretends she’s being persecuted for. #hypocrisy
It is the only thing I ever see Emily Ratajkowski talk about in her interviews (WE GET IT, EMILY-MOVE ON) and now Kim has found another empty head to support her vapid cause of narcissism. I guess Kim is the one sending out friendship checks now-hopefully Emily will get a couple of appearances on KUTK to make it worth her while. It’s not like anyone is breaking down her door for acting roles.
They can do whatever the hell they want. But do I have to understand what they have been #liberated from exactly? I just don’t understand the message here. So expressing your sexuality means posing nude on Instagram? Seeking approval from society for your boobs? Man, somewhere along the way they lost me.
We like to sh*t on her for having built an empire on a p0rn video but really, it says more about society that she could do that than it says about her. I don’t support the message behind her success. But if she wants to free the boobs for likes on social media, by all means. Carry on.
Exactly. Try dressing comfortably. That’s liberating. Try dressing for yourself instead looking like a blow up doll for men. That would be liberating. Stop putting so much emphasis on your appearance that you are constantly ‘under construction’. That would be liberating. Don’t pull your fake t*ts out for the umpteenth time and call it liberation. She doesn’t even know what the word means.
Yeah, that’s exactly what I don’t get. How can you claim to be liberated when your entire life and brand revolve around conforming to certain ideas of beauty? And doing everything in your power to transform yourself into a caricature of what is considered attractive? I look at both of these women’s Instagrams and all I see is work. Work to achieve a certain ideal. I see no liberation anywhere.
Everyone knew that was going to happen. Emily’s career is tanking. She knew getting close to Kim would get her some publicity,
and Emily will tell us its all because society is punishing her for getting naked. we are reducing the woman who only gets naked to her naked body!
Who is she? I’ve never heard of her before this, what is her claim to fame?
She has two claims to fame, which she is showing off for the 10,000th time in this selfie.
Seriously, I think she is a model-actress, but she’s seemingly built her notoriety around her chest.
She is basically famous for nude or nearly nude modeling. Then some idiot told her to try acting. She had a tiny role in “Gone Girl” which was cringe worthy. Then was in two movies that were major flops.
Thank you- I don’t remember her in gone girl which doesn’t mean much. Thank you for answering.
She was briefly featured in GG as the student with whom Nick (Ben) was having an affair. Her character has a late night visit that of course ends with her taking off her top.
Wasn’t she also in Robin Thicke’s one video – forget which one and think she was topless in that also.
That black bar is covering as much breast as most of their everyday looks. I don’t see how that photo is cause for any sort of reaction. Boring…
As a nurse ab to start work, what a shallow snore.
My response me and my female doctor coworkers w stethoscopes giving you the finger in scrubs before we go help sick kids and elderly in the emergency room.
Go contribute in a real way, w your brain, #welookbestinourscrubsandbusinesssuits!
North is so precious. The outfit tho… not appropriate I think.
It’s just so OLD. I swear she’s always naked or not covered decently. What would really be a shock and turn heads is her wearing good fitting, and not transparent, clothes. Even hookers are like “I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing that”.
What’s interesting is that she has worn some good fitting, nontransparent clothes and has been complimented on it. Not too long ago (less than a month) she wore a lose t-shirt and jeans and got all kinds of compliments.
Photoshopped exhibitionism of females on the internet and in magazines is empowering, liberating and feminist to other females up to what age? I wonder if a 60 year old woman is inspired and empowered to do the same.
I’ll be 60 in August, and if I felt like that had anything to do with my power or feminism or sexuality, that would be one thing. But your power comes from within, especially as you get older. I still like my body, actually. It’s far from perfect, but it’s an old friend who has been through a lot with me and my soul. I think I like it more now than I ever did, but for different reasons. So if a woman in her 60 s wanted to pose nude, good for her. I don’t, but it’s not because I’m not empowered or liberated. It just has very little to do with who I am.
I absolutely loved this comment. I feel the same way about my body, though I am only 25 – I can only hope to be as thoughtful and lovely as you are at an older age, GNAT! I always appreciate your comments (I myself don’t comment very often).
I just finished a paper on race and gender in mainstream american video gaming, am going to be celebrating now and I want to thank CB for always being inspiring, great site to read 🙂
Beware of take who use good intentions and use them for their own selfish reasons. I’m not going to immediately blast Emily because of her association to Kim because she has given many interviews in the past describing the issues non-famous women face and proudly wore the title feminist when people like Meryl Streep couldn’t be arsed.
That being said I’m really tired of the celebrity brand of feminism (and it’s not all celebs) that doesn’t address anything other than the individual. Other celebs have built schools, contributed to feminist organizations, encouraged intellifent though (yes, even Beyonce, gasp!) whereas Kim has done none of that. Her feminism is the pure advancement of herself and no one else.
Exactly. I don’t have a problem with her posting naked selfies, she could walk down the street butt naked and I wouldn’t care.
What I do have a problem is her trying to pass off nude selfies as a sexual/women’s empowerment statement when it’s clear it’s just her usual brand of vapid narcissism. And it doesn’t make me any less of a feminist to feel this way about it.
Exactly and thanks for even responding with that tragedy of a first sentence I attempted to write. Early morning Side-Eye is not always best Side-Eye, lol.
Lol! I got you Eternal, it made perfect sense to me, maybe because I just woke up as well?
Exactly, but she has a uterus so we can’t make intelligent observations about her or we aren’t feminists.
Shame on us GoodNames.
I think we’re supposed to whip off our tops and take a selfie now with her in solidarity.
That’ll show ’em who’s boss!
I cannot stand self-obsessed Emily Ratawhatever.
I honestly dislike her more than Kim, which is saying something.
Yeah me too. She is just a plain famewhore without even a side project or a disguise.
I ignored her for awhile but she’s forcing herself in our faces as much as possible. Now I have an opinion and it is that she is annoying and lacks talent.
Me too! I saw her on an interview when I was in America. I feel like 99% of the male population is blinded by her boobs. She was pretty in the Blurred Lines video, but they must have captured all her best angles. Personally I think old Kim was far more beautiful. Yes I am saying I don’t find her overly attractive, but she doesn’t even have anything interesting to say either.
Dumb and Dumber.
All they want is attention in disguise of a body shaming ‘rebellion’.
Put your clothes on. That would make the news.
Better yet, put your clothes on AND read a book. Any book. That would shock the sh-t out of me.
Their ‘friendship’ makes sense. It really does. You can almost smell the desperation through the screen.
The house that Kim and Kanye have supposedly moved into is the Bel Air mansion they bought and have placed on the market. The Hidden Hills home is, I’m assuming, still being renovated. Don’t understand why they would move into one home, just to move into a different one in a few months. As far as the pictures – again attention seeking and not empowering.
They probably think the price of the home will go up if they (self appointed King and Queen) have lived in it. It’s now a home for Royalty you know.
Me, Kanye thinks he’s a God and his wife is “the most beautiful woman in the world”. I bet that title already changed with every visit she pays to the doctor.
Omg this isn’t liberated this is trolling for attention and sad. If you want to be naked go for it, no big deal but STOP pretending it’s about feminism, because it isn’t!! Posing nude has nothing to do with women’s lib or feminism, and if Kim or this other girl who I’ve never heard of before this moment gave a damn about feminism or women’s issues they’d use their voices for stuff that mattered and would make a difference!
They would try to be a part of the it’s on us campaign, they would be speaking out for equal pay, they would be talking about mandatory paid maternity leave, they’d be supporting women’s specific drugs being covered by insurance, or removing the tampon tax to name a few.
They aren’t though! Ans you know why? Because that doesn’t get them attention. So save the liberation bull.
She fails to understand that it’s not about being liberated and empowered by your body. That’s fantastic, kudos to her and every other woman out there. It’s about having some sort of shred of self respect left that you don’t need to parade around your naked body every chance you get. You should be able to feel empowered and liberated with your clothes on or even a bag over your head. Not everything is about sex and beauty. No one is hating on her for loving her body. Everyone is hating on her for MAKING IT ABOUT HER BODY.
As a feminist, I will say that these women can show their colonoscopies if they like. They can wear Saran Wrap thongs and post it on IG. They can be naked and eating pancakes. I don’t care what they do or don’t show. Yes, their bodies their rights. But this is all they have and do. Kim is nothing but a show, and Emily couldn’t act her way out an airport hangar. So get that attention, ladies. It’s the only thing you do well.
i can’t get behind it. i agree with the notion, but it’s kim kardashian and that woman who used to dance to robin’s thicke incredibly misogynist song, so NO. #liberatedmyarse
I wish people would stop prmoting nakedness as a form of liberation. That’s just mindless silliness, irrelevant and deeply shallow. The only ones that benefit is skeezy men.
Well no, ALL Kim is is her body. That is all this woman has. She makes money off of it.
“Middle finger” right back at you b*tches. Ughhh I can’t stand women like them. Also, was that topless photo taken in a public washroom? Get some f*cking self respect. Get a talent, an education…SOMETHING other than your naked body as “proof” you are liberated. B*tch please you are a prisoner to photoshop.
and again the Klan has the post with the most comments
I agree with Kaiser. I don’t care how much Kim has tweaked her body. Not The point. I have decided not to become offended by female or male nudity. Many people are not willing to admit how judgemental they are about nudity when they just don’t like the people showing it off. Kim is a fame whore. Kim is nothing but her body. Kim is vapid and degrading. Etc, etc. Right?
When has Kim ever used her “empowerment” for something other than herself: child abuse, poverty, education?
It’s on;y been used to promote the Kartrashian train.
So, Kim, what are your thoughts on Kanye’s lyrics and the porn industry? A feminist icon like you should deffo have a strong opinion on those.
Are porn stars not allowed to be feminists now? Or was that just a not so subtle dig at porn actresses who work in the industry?…
I just think it’s hilarious she’s all “FEMINISM!!” when it comes to criticism of her naked selfies, but doesnt seem to care about the subject beyond that.
See, I just don’t get their point. I’m not the smartest tool in the box, but I’m pretty sure I could beat a kardashian in a smarts test. I JUST DONT GET IT?!? Are they saying that if they want to get their tits out on the Internet, that’s ok? Because I didn’t get the impression anyone was saying otherwise? Only that they were bored with it. Am I wrong?
I agree, I think you are correct
I like going topless, it does feel somewhat freeing… but it’s honestly like a 1/10 on the liberation scale. If she REALLY wants to feel liberated and not just get a bunch of attention maybe she should learn a new skill or language? Try something she’s always been intimidated by? Those are things that are TRULY liberating on a personal level, but I guess they wont get her the attention she’s really seeking with this nonsense.
Does anyone remember a few years ago (pre-Kanye) Kim hired a new stylist and said she wanted to get rid of her “sexy” image and wanted to be taken more seriously? She swore she’d never do another nude shoot. Ha ha. I don’t think this girl can even spell the word “empowerment” let alone know the true meaning of it. I mean how are you empowered when you still have to put a big black bar across your nipples but men don’t? Does she ever wonder that? Nope of course not. The inequality between men and women doesn’t matter to her at all.
See Lizzy McGuire’s post above. She has a link to a video of where Kim is devastated by the nude shoot she just did and declares she’ll never do another one.
Yeah I remember seeing that before. It’s funny how she “acted” as if she was devastated by the pics but as soon as the mag came out she was so happy (because they photoshopped them to death and made her body look slimmer). She’s nothing but a hypocrite, a liar, and a fake.
The thing is, we’re all just saying the same thing, and we’re all right, but we still click on these posts and perpetuate them and what they stand for.
This is the last time I’m clicking on a K-post. Making myself accountable here.
I’m getting there too. I am past tired of her but her liberation arguments irk and I need to just ignore her.
Why does everything have to be a lesson or a point? You wanted to pose topless with your nipples blacked out. That’s it. There’s nothing more to it. It’s that simple and dont make it anything but that.
What is she liberated from? The sex tape she and her mother “leaked”…. Or the 5000 other topless or nude shots she’s posted?
All I have to say about Emily whatever her name is, is that she is desperate for a career and I’m not interested in anything she has to say about sexuality. She endlessly talks in interviews about how her father called her “baby woman” when she was like 12 because her breasts grew and it was hard for him to ignore her sexual body… I mean, come on. TMI. Not cute and very creepy.
“It’s not narcissism, it’s feminism! If you hate this you hate women!”
It’s a great shield for her.
Emily R must be pretty short for a model. Or else Kim is standing on a box.
I have never been so bored by naked photos in my whole life.
She didn’t like that she got called out as an attention whore for that other naked photo. (I know, I know, which one?) Then a few idiots, also fame whores, chimed in on her side, so now she’s trying to pretend it’s a movement and not the desperate acts of a narcissistic, insecure woman. To me she is the opposite of sexy and liberated. She appears plastic and stiff – Kanye’s Real Kim Doll. She’s a slave to unnatural beauty ideals and the surgery and procedures it takes to achieve these. There are women throughout history who have been trailblazers in the sexy/liberated category. And this heifer couldn’t hold a candle to these badasses. One of my favorites: http://www.buzzfeed.com/amandae24/23-times-helen-mirren-was-a-total-badass-ebgs
Who do you think fits that description?
No ms ratatouille it’s just Kim that everyone has a problem with. No naked shaming just pure disgust at Kim and her porno selling fat fake liposucked life.
I don’t understand it. I read an article in which Emily regretted appearing half naked on that infamous music video because people only talk about her boobs. Now she’s flashing them?
And Kardashians, it’s just so disturbing that people all over the world has seen the boobs of everyone in her family. Where’s the shame?
