REALLY?

Kim Kardashian and the winter 2014 issue of Paper Magazine are trying to break the internet with pictures of Kim’s butt? Are you kidding me? This is what they keep talking about on television, and apparently this is what it takes for a beautiful woman to make an impact on the internet. Click away, do your search, I gave it a look since I decided I needed to know what I was writing about, but I am not going to give you a link, primarily because I just don’t care.

Chelsea Handler has gotten into the game, by questioning Kim’s photo and posting one of her own butt for a side by side comparison. Is this going to start a rash of woman’s bottoms being shown on the internet. Isn’t there enough pictures of puppies, kittens, fairies and unicorns to keep people happy? Why is this the first day I haven’t seen a single Facebook post about how God loves me, so we better pray in school, and share within 10 seconds to receive the answer to all our prayers, solving all our problems. Have the those posting the religious messages lost hope of saving any of us?

Those concerned about the body image of young women are really pissed. We spend so much time telling girls and young women that true beauty is more than what you can see, but this enhanced butt is all anyone wants to talk about. The entire break the internet thing is so high school!

Teen girls bear their breasts, teen boys and girls bear their butts and show them off for a reaction from passing motorists. Parents are horrified that their kids are sexting, and worry that these images will follow them the rest of their lives. Only prudes like I always have been, and old ladies like me now, ever seem to object to this behavior. We apparently don’t have a clue what a healthy view of sexuality is, because we are so repressed. So how do these children who accuse us of sexual repression think they got into this world?

Nudity can be artistic. The human form is beautiful. But at least one of the Kim Kardashian photos isn’t even original, but a remake of one Jean-Paul Goude took of Grace Jones (a black woman) and published in a book titled “Jungle Fever.” You can see both pictures side by side here.

My advice is the same given by news analyst Sally Kohn who calls clicking on things a public act, making you an editor. Don’t engage with this stuff, and use your clicks and likes for news you truly trust. Or for pictures of puppies and kittens.
