Okay so let’s get this out of the way… I love seeing women (like Kylie) doing well, making their money, living their best life, etc. I’m all about that girl power, and just love to see people be successful in general! Now with that said… here is my HUGE problem with Kylie Jenner.
Her body modification/plastic surgery. But… let me be very clear, my issue is not that she has had extensive work done (because that’s okay – plastic surgery is totally cool, and nothing to be ashamed of or looked down on) but because she won’t admit it and lies about it. When Kylie admitted she got her lips done, (we all kind of knew) her verbal confirmation made any fans who defended her lips shut up and killed all the little girls with dreams that “puberty” would make their lips big too. I totally respected her for admitting it and I am happy for her that she is no longer insecure about herself. NOW… let’s talk about her body.
Above are some photos of Kylie’s real body (she has narrow hips, a very small butt, her waist is very up and down, flat stomach but no hourglass shape whatsoever) I think she looks great and when I was a fan of her back when I was younger and these pics came out I thought she looked great too! Now let’s look at some recent pics.
Here is her body now (Her hips are very wide, her stomach is flat, her waist is pinched, her breasts are bigger, and her butt is big)
These two photosets look like they’re of two different people! I won’t be one of those annoying people and say she looks better in the first set because I don’t believe that. Personally I like the way her body looks in the second set, and when I go to the gym, I work for a smaller waist and a bigger behind… so I won’t lie. But I do not condone lying about how she got her body like that (surgery) and I think she is a BAD person for it.
Little girls, teenagers, and women in general are being told that this is what puberty does. That is not puberty!! That is thousands of dollars worth of plastic surgery!! When a girl looks at the tabloids or tumblr pictures online she will see Kylie Jenner’s “perfect body”. She will think why can’t I look like that? She will be insecure. She will think she is ugly. That is not okay and Kylie is 100% to blame. If she came out and admitted that she gets a Brazilian butt lift every 9 months and does fat graphing, liposuction, and has gotten breast implants and let everyone know that that body IS NOT REAL I would have so much respect for her. But she continues to claim that that is just how god made her and it’s complete and utter toxic bullshit.
So let’s stop idolizing this girl, let’s stop putting her on a pedestal, let’s find role models with positive messages, let’s find idols who represent education, philanthropy, positivity, love, etc. Let’s stop caring about Kylie Jenner because she does nothing worth caring about.
