I saw the following post on instagram, and simply had to share here. It was a post done by Kecy Anosike on the audacity of Kim Kardashian’s sensuality. Check on it:
I think the world will remember Kim as a slut – a whore, and I don’t mind at all. Because she is a woman who has come to own her sexuality/sensuality in the way women are rebuked from. She’s a slut for fucking a bunch of guys, but the guys in return are simply removed from the shame of it, seen as conquerors; possessed with the victory badge of their maleness.
We are a people who treat sex as this burden on womanhood (I don’t know the right term right now, at this junction, for the LGBT) but face it, you probably just had sex. Or as you read this, you’re having sex or thinking of it. Or, if you’re not me, you’d probably be getting some tonight. Why do we treat it as something to be discussed, albeit lightly, only when we are playing Never Have I. That is when people unmask those that have done it in church, under the bed, inside the boot. Those that have done it even with their clothes still on.
Often people ask me: “Why this woman, what is it?” One time during an interview, the question was, “…as an intellectual, what do you find in someone like her.” Someone like her, implying less intellectual, even though she’s one of the underlying feminists of our time. Well, I think it’s her audacity. I’m just in awe of people who live life on their own terms. And oh, in case you haven’t been paying attention, “a whore” is just another term for women who are bold enough to exist sexually and psychologically on the same level as men.
