I apologize for another Kardashian post, but the family just seems to make themselves available for blog posts…
Well, I was on Twitter when I started seeing tweets about Kendall Jenner’s new Instagram post. I decided to check it out, and this is what I found:
Now of course, the Twitter world was buzzing with harsh comments about this photo. People were calling Kendall names like, “slut,” “whore,” “mini Kim K” (in reference to her sex tape), etc., because of her sheer top and the exposure of her nipples. This post was Kendall promoting a photo shoot she did as an advertisement for the world renowned photographer Russell James. The purpose of the ad has yet to be stated, but what the world can deduce is that it will be sexual in some way.
People have a problem with this photo because they see it as very explicit. Their reactions shows how the American public has a problem with nudity and pornography. Even though sex it everywhere, Americans still have a problem with it being openly displayed. They would rather have sex represented in subtle ways that leave much to the imagination. Sex and nudity is seen as something to be ashamed of and kept hidden. Even though this photo was clearly not taken for pornographic reasons, people still link it with porn, and denounce it as “bad” and “obscene.”
I do not see this post as obscene, I see it as art. Kendall Jenner is a high fashion model, an adult (even though she just turned 18 last week), and has a right to express her artistic ability in any way she sees fit.
Let her live.
