Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has just revealed that she doesn’t like being tagged a feminist. While speaking at the BlogHer 16 conference in Los Angeles on Friday, August 5, 2016, the E! star talked about some of her pressing issues as a star and how she intends to keep her children off limelight.
Speaking to BlogHer co-founder and SheKnows Media’s Chief Community Officer Elisa Camahort Page, Kardashian opened up on her status as a feminist, how she responds to negative attention and her increased passion for social justice issues, which in her opinion doesn’t make her a feminist.
“I don’t think that I am [a feminist]. I don’t like labels. I do what makes me happy and I want women to be confident. I am so supportive of women. I love nothing more than when I’m with all my friends and I love to support women but I’m not a ‘free the nipple-type” of girl. If you’re not comfortable with that, don’t do it! I’m not about the labels. Just be you and be confident in you.
“Because I feel good about myself! I mean, after you have a kid and now after you have two kids there is a feeling,” talking about exposing her body. “I mean, I lost 70 pounds. So when you dedicate yourself getting up every morning, wake up at six in the morning, feeding one baby, get to go work out for an hour, coming back, feeding another baby, my husband, and then come back… I’m like, ‘I have three people I have to take care of!’
“You can just get so caught up in not wanting to be motivated. So I made it a really important thing for my confidence and for me to feel good. Have I posted a new selfie since I lost all my baby weight? I don’t think so!
“I definitely am really protective of my life with the kids,” she said on raising her children outside of the spotlight, “you might see them on [Keeping Up With the Kardashians] a little bit, but not real stories about them… We just don’t make stories—Kourtney and I don’t makes stories really around our children. They’ll be there but if anything that’s a benefit because we get to spend more time with them.”
Recently, Kim showed off her six-months-old son’s closet via her website, which boasts of custom designer pieces and a gold and diamond chain necklace.
