KIM KARDASHIAN DOESNT WANT TO BE LABELED A FEMINIST

Kim Kardashian has recently come out in a blog post stating why she does not want to be labeled as a feminist. She stated in her blog :

 “For me, feminist is someone who advocates for the civil and social rights and libertieKanye-West-and-Kim-Kardashian-2s of all people, regardless of their gender; anyone who believes that women should have the same choices and opportunities as men when it comes to education and employment, their bodies and their lifestyles. Of course I want these things! I’m all about empowering and uplifting women.I’ll always fight for women’s rights. Always.

I support women to the fullest. But, at the end of the day, no one should feel pressured to be labelled as anything just because they believe in certain things and support certain values or ideals.” “Obviously, there are things about me that people might say make me a feminist: I work hard, I make my own money, I’m comfortable and confident in my own skin, and I encourage women to be open and honest about
their sexuality, and to embrace their beauty and their bodies.

But why do we have to put labels on things? You’re Republican, you’re Democrat, you’re bisexual, you’re plus-size, you’re poor, you’re a criminal, you’re a mother, you’re a feminist. I’m a human being, and I have thoughts, feelings and opinions about a lot of different things.I don’t need to be defined by those beliefs, just as much as I don’t want to be set apart from – or viewed as being against – those who DO define themselves by those. I feel that being grouped or labelled can create separation between people who do (or don’t) fall into certain categories, when they may actually share many of the same beliefs and goals. It’s not about he, she, gay, straight, black, white. The fight for equality is about ALL human beings being treated equally – regardless of gender, sexuality or ethnicity.”
What are your thoughts on the matter? Are you a feminist?
