Kylie Jenner Joins Fight For Free The Nipple Campaign

Self-titled baby boss Kylie Jenner is no stranger to attention-grabbing photo shoots.


Today, as every day in all the Kardashian Hidden Hills households, is no different.

The 19-year-old reality TV professional, Kylie Jenner, posted yet another snap to her Instagram army – a nearly 85 million strong hoard of Dash Dolls – which managed to covertly abuse the photo-sharing app’s community guidelines.

In the latest photograph – which was taken by Kylie’s artist of choice, Sasha Samsonova, Kylie donned a transparent black bodysuit in a barely-there fashion choice.


Samsonova has been responsible for a number of attention-grabbing images of Kylie to date, including an erotic video shot in the company of Kylie’s boyfriend, Tyga.

This feminine shoot comes to Instagram just days after Kylie’s campaign for fitness wear brand, Puma – of which Rihanna is Creative Director – was dropped.

Although Kylie has previously used her public persona to advertise her own brand of much-maligned Kosmetics, this time it seems the flash of flesh is for purely for the sake of freeing the nipple.

The campaign sees women everywhere fight for anatomical equality with their male counterparts in an attempt to rid the world of the sexual taboos centred around the female form.

The campaign has had reams of support from Instagram users – both the alleged celebrity variety and from the rest of us average Josephine’s.


Instagram has regularly been criticised for suspending female users that show their nipples, whether during breastfeeding or simply for the hell of it.

Sadly, the taboo is such that men’s nipples are never censored on the world wide web – despite them having much less functional use for humanity than the female nipple.

Since Instagram models and celebrities alike – such as Kylie’s sister, Kendall and Neighbours‘ Caitlin Stasey – have been using creative ways of getting around the sexist guidelines.

The point has been well made by Instagram accounts such as Genderless Nipple.

The feed posts close-up shots of unidentified individuals nipples in a challenge to Instagram which once and for all proves that censoring an anatomical aspect of women is all a lot of fuss and bother over nothing, really.

So, whatever you think about Kylie Jenner, maybe her infuriating attention-seeking might actually be for the Greater Good of womankind after all.
