Amber Rose, who previously damn near broke the internet with a particularly perplexing selfie (see above), has come to Kim Kardashian’s defense once again following the ridiculous controversy surrounding her recently 'grammed nude. Though Kim already addressed her detractors in a Pablo-esque tweetstorm and a powerful essay on empowerment, Pink took additional issue with that approach on Tuesday. Rose wasn’t really feeling it and thankfully voiced her thoughts:
In a separate post penned directly to Kim, Amber Rose asked the pop culture icon to continue making a difference using her massive media platform. "Live it Kim!" Rose wrote on Wednesday. "Make a difference and speak on it! Not only when it’s convenient for [you] but when [you] can help others."
Rose also invited Kim—and the entire Kardashian fam—to this year’s SlutWalk event. Last year’s walk in Los Angeles, which served as the inaugural edition of what Rose hopes to continue doing for many years, inspired a tremendous crowd of activists to speak their truth against a world designed to ignore them. "I never really thought about feminism, it wasn’t even a thought until I started noticing things that weren’t quite right," Rose told our own Lauren Nostro surrounding last year's protest. "I would post a picture of me and my son and the people will go in and say, 'Does your son know his mother is a whore?'"
"I am empowered by my sexuality," Kim wrote in an essay on Tuesday. "I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me." Thankfully, those with a modern and informed view of society know all too well the trauma of continuous slut-shaming. To paraphrase Amber Rose, we were all born naked. Why not embrace that?
