So after Friday’s epiphany about blogging, I decided to give myself a day off yesterday (the first one in 4 months of blogging) and I have to say…there were no twitches or sweating, much to my suprise. Anyway I’m back on the horse now and I wanted to talk about something that has kind of been playing on my mind for a while.
In case you don’t know who Kylie Jenner is, she’s part of one of the most famously Hollywood families (the Kardashian-Jenner Klan), she’s a reality TV show star, a model, a hair extension expert (for some reason) and a millionaire at only 17 years old.
So it doesn’t sound too bad…well it doesn’t sound too bad until you throw in some other factors like the fact she dates a rapper 6 years her elder, she posts ‘provocative’ photos of herself online (which a lot of people are uncomfortable with because of her age) and she is rumoured to have had plastic surgery.
And it’s because of these factors that a lot of people do have something to say. Sadly ‘the live and let live’ attitude does stretch as a far and as wide as people would hope, but are people right to treat Kylie Jenner in this way?
In my opinion, the word ‘stupid’ and ‘slut’ and other such variations are being thrown around a bit too much for talking about a 17 year old girl. Do I agree that a 17 year old should have plastic surgery? No, probably not, but do I agree that millions of people all over the globe should make it there job to tell her what she should and shouldn’t be doing (in a usually derogatory or belittling manner)? No I don’t.
And not because I’m standing up for her female to female, because I standing up for her as human to human. Because nobody, whether your 18 or 80, man, woman or whatever deserves to read such horrible things about themselves in such a mass.
And also, would you call her a stupid slut to her face?
No, probably not.
