Kim Kardashian broke the Internet this week again with not one, but two naked selfies.
And, as always, she got a whole lot of stick over it.
So, after Twitter ignited a war over her pictures, the social media and reality TV star penned an essay on empowerment to justify her bare-all selfies. On International Women’s Day.
While some dismissed the nudes as sleazy, Kim K says she is most certainly a role model for young girls and women alike. Why? Because she doesn’t do drugs and has never committed a crime, MTV reports.
I think baring all to 10-year-old girls who will copy your every move is a little different though, Kim.
She said on her website:
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.Advertisement

I think actress Chloe Grace Moretz put it best when she tweeted at Kim about setting an example for young women, saying females have much more to offer than just their bodies.
Bette Midler was also among Kim’s critics, adding:
If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna have to swallow the camera.
I’m all for female empowerment (being one myself), and if Kim wants to show off her enviously anatomically impossible body, I say, go her. But maybe think twice before stripping off and calling yourself a good role model for young girls.
