Kim Kardashian: She's Not So Bad

She's not what's wrong with the world.

Kim Kardashian is the kind of person that everyone loves to hate. We talk about how she's ruining society and how she has no talent or semblance of intelligence, yet people are interested in her every move - even if it's just to comment on that Buzzfeed article with a comment that says, "Can we stop talking about this no talent hack? I should unlike this page."

Let's face the facts: you're not going to unlike Buzzfeed, and you really don't hate Kim Kardashian and her family. The truth of it all is that we hate who we've become as a society.

You can blame people like Kim for making vanity a staple or for making a multi-billion dollar career out of nothing, but it's not there fault. It's ours.

We're the ones that tune into their manufactured lives and we're the ones who read articles about the latest gossip in their tightly woven family. We're the ones that are fueling their fame. Bad publicity is better than no publicity, and they know that better than everyone else.

Why do we feel the need to comment on every aspect of their lives? It shouldn't really matter all that much what she choses to name her daughter. She can't be the only one to name their kid something we wouldn't necessarily chose for our own. So what if she tapes up her boobs or takes naked selfies? It's her body and she can do what she wants.

Do you really think that she care or even reads the comments that people post on the internet? And even if she does, do you think she cares? She's making money off of the fact that you hate her and choose to express that on an media platform that you can.

Kim Kardashian is not what's wrong with the world. An entire internet universe full of people who feel like they have the right to judge others and blame them for their own wrongs is what's wrong with the world.

The opposite of love is not hate, it's apathy. If you really didn't care about the Kardashians, you wouldn't hate them. You would simply not care about anything they say or do. The way to get the world to stop talking about them is to stop talking about them yourself.

It's a real big cliche to say that you need to be the change you want to see in the world, but it's incredibly true. Love and hate have the equal amount of power to make someone famous.

Yeah, Kim Kardashian is not so bad. She's simply a woman that's trying to get ahead in this world and she know the best way to do it. She makes you love her and hate her. She keeps you interested and she makes you care.

We always talk about how we just need to "be ourselves." Kim Kardashian and her family are just being themselves and they're probably the only ones.

I Was At The Atlanta George Floyd Protests, Here's What It Was Like Before The Violence Started

What started out as a peaceful protest quickly resulted in destruction, with mixed opinions leading narratives on both sides.

When I heard about the protests happening in my city in honor of George Floyd, a black man who was brutally and fatally detained by police in broad daylight, I was conflicted about the best way for me to support a cause that I was passionate about. The senseless killings of people of color in America had been weighing on me, and I was eager for a way to help, to do my part. I wanted to be out on the ground with my community, having our voices heard. However, there was the issue of the coronavirus, a very real and troublesome threat that is still controlling our daily lives.

If You Can Eat Crap And Stay Thin You Aren't Healthy, You're Lucky

A high metabolism isn't a get-out-of-jail-free card!

Everyone has that one friend — the one who eats to their heart's content but never gains an ounce. Meanwhile, you feel like you gain five pounds just stealing a glance at a hamburger! My childhood best friend was like that, much to my chagrin. Anyone who hadn't witnessed her eat might be tempted to say that she was thin because of her diet, but she would sometimes eat a bag of Sour Patch Kids as a "meal." One time, I watched in awe as she chowed down on a "salad" made up of one part romaine lettuce, two parts shredded cheddar cheese, and two parts French dressing — it was nothing more than a red lake of dressing with bits of green and orange debris floating in it. Clearly our definitions of "salad" were quite different, as were our perceptions of a balanced meal.
