Let's Stop Pretending Kim Kardashian is a Feminist - Dani Fleischer

This quote was added by weesin
But mostly, the perspective we should be concerned about is that of all those young girls who are following Kardashian on social media - and taking notes about where to find their worth. That's why this matters. They are looking at her, and they are looking at how she is exalted by so many people, and they are developing their senses of personhood accordingly.

The Kardashian's are certainly problematic is many different ways, but to villainize them is getting old and is a bit misogynistic. While they set toxic beauty standards, they are also very smart business women, advocates (Kim's work with the justice system), and appear to be good/loving parents. Of course these things naturally become easier when you have the resources they do, but it's bias to shame them entirely without acknowledging anything good. If their fame is bothersome, that's more of a commentary on society than them specifically. We choose who is famous, not them...

If it wasn't the Kardashians and their humungous butts, it would be someone else with some other exaggerated, impossible to obtain features setting the standards of beauty that everyone would try and fail to live up to. It's not the fact the Kardashians exist that's the problem, it's that we naturally place those who we feel are better than us on a pedestal we can never reach, then define our self worth by how close we can get to them.
