(6 Aug 2016) STORYLINE: KIM KARDASHIAN: I'M NOT A FEMINIST
While speaking at the BlogHer conference for female bloggers Friday (5 AUG. 2016) in Los Angeles, Kim Kardashian told the crowd she's not a feminist.
"I don't think that I am. I think that I'm just ... I don't like labels. I just think I do what makes me happy and I want women to be confident and I'm so supportive of women. I love nothing more than when all my friends ... and I love to support other women. But I'm not the free-the-nipple type girl. If you're not comfortable with that don't do it! You know, so I'm just more like a be … I'm not about the labels. Just be you. Be confident within you and if you're not, then that's fine too. Just like no hate. That's my thing. It's just be happy, spread love, no hate. No need for it," Kardashian said.
BlogHer co-founder Elisa Camahort led the discussion and asked the famous mother of two why she likes to post nude pictures on social media.
"Because I feel good about myself!" replied Kardashian. "I mean after you have a kid, now if you have two kids, there is a feeling that ... I mean I lost 70 pounds! So when you dedicate yourself (to) getting up every morning... Thank you! Thank you. You know waking up at six in the morning, feeding one baby, running to go workout for an hour, coming back, feeding another baby - my husband. And then coming back and then my daughter wakes up, having to feed her. You know it's like I have three people that I have to take care of."
The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star said she and husband, Kanye West, try to keep some parts of their lives private.
"My husband is on our show sometimes, but we do have a really private you know relationship. He's very private even though he's in the business and I'm very open. And so he's really taught me how to become a little bit more private and I've taught him how to be a little bit more open and it really works for us. So I definitely say that part of my home life and life with my kids, I try to hold onto," she explained.
Kardashian said people often underestimate her and how hard she works on her blog and smart phone app.
"When someone underestimates me I love to get to know them and have them have one conversation with me to just understand. I mean, easiest question to ask is 'what does she do? What is your talent?' You know and I jokingly said actually to my husband the other day, I said, 'You know what? My next answer should be like sarcastically, 'How lucky am I? If I don't sing and I don't dance, but I'm still doing what I'm doing. How easy is my job? I don't have to do any of that. I don't have to be on stage like you working so hard, but we're still driving the same car. We are still living the same life. You know so lucky me!' If it was that easy … But you know, I think it's just like the easiest thing to ask. For anyone to really assume that it's not a full-time job to have to sit and create things and come up with every single blog post and I do three a day," she said.
Turns out the TV star is living her lifelong dream on her popular E! reality series, which follows the lives of her famous family.
The 2016 Blogher conference brought together more than 3500 bloggers, social media stars and experts for three days of educational and networking opportunities. Other speakers included Sheryl Crow and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
