Khloe Kardashian Needs To Be A Role Model To Fans By Owning The Skin She's In

I get that she didn't agree to be a role model yet, but she's on television for million of girls to see, and she can't take accountability for her actions.

For anyone that isn't aware of the situation, an unedited photo appeared online of Khloe Kardashian. She's standing tall in her two piece bathing suit. Khloe and her media team decided it would be best to remove the photo from all platforms because it was never supposed to see the light of day. Now, instead of embracing her body and encouraging all her fans to love the skin they're in, she has the photo removed. A day later, she post's a Live video to her Instagram showing her body, which looks nothing like the unedited photo that once appeared on our feed. She goes on to say in her Instagram post, "This is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered, and as someone who struggled with body image her whole life, when someone takes a photo of you that isn't flattering, in bad lighting or doesn't capture your body the way it is after working so hard to get to this point, and then shares it to the world, you have every right to ask for it back."

She was praised by her entire Kardashian family, among other celebrities, for being courageous and open.

However, not every celebrity bought into the situation. Jameela Jamil, Kate Upton, and Sophie Ross pushed back at her actions.

It wasn't long ago when Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and their other sisters were promoting diet teas, diet lollipops to suppress your appetite, and diet shakes. Khloe used to have a show called Revenge Body, and even wrote a book called, "Strong Looks Better Naked." However, she's promoting this idea of a perfect body when she won't even embrace her own body. She launched a denim line called "Good American," and her ultimate goal for her brand was to design inclusive denim jeans for women of all sizes. How can someone push for inclusive sizing but won't embrace an unedited photo of herself?

Khloe, among her other famous sisters, has received backlash for altering their photos, photoshopping, and adding filters to photos.

Young girls look up to all these powerful women who have these massive platforms, and instead of seeing role models who tell them to love their stretch marks, they see an unrealistic body image. Women and girls all over the world are trying to achieve the look that Khloe, and her famous sisters, are putting out there. The big booty, big boobs, slim waist, and fake lips. In their mind, that's the perfect body that everyone wants to achieve but that's not really healthy, is it? Not to mention, Khloe has a daughter and worked out to achieve her goal body after giving birth, but she can't embrace her stretch marks after bringing her daughter into this world?

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
