    It doesn't empower women just reinforces the stereotype that the body is used for attention.
    Doesn't help she only uses it for attention.

    Empowering it is not. It's attention seeking, like everything else she does.

    I don't understand why people still give the attention whore attention.
    This. The stupidity, and shallowness surrounding the celebrity culture involving idiots like her is mind blowing.

    Well, I think the whole idea of empowerment is that a woman can do whatever she wants without worrying about the opinions of a patriarchal society. It's not even a nude, it's almost equivalent to a bikini selfie. Her bits are covered.

    First of all, I neither hate nor love Kim Kardashian.

    The issue of nudity and self expression isn't black and white. First of all, you can look at this as 'empowering' because she is doing simply just whatever the heck she wants. Women in some areas of the world cannot show their ankles, their hair, areas we don't see as sexually provocative. They don't have the right in some countries, and then again in other places nipples are harmless (they don't bite, steal your virginity). The female body is sexual and can only be used for sexual gain, right; I mean half of the people screaming "SHE'S A MUM HAVE SOME RESPECT" have watched porn, maybe even Kim's sex tape itself, and enjoyed it. But oh no, a woman enjoying her own body as more than a sexual object? OBSURD, RIGHT?

    "THIS PHOTO DISEMPOWERS WOMEN AND EVERY DAY BODIES" right? Stretch marks, wrinkles, sagging breasts, pear shape bodies and impurities. This photo, it's a display of vanity, of flaws being covered. How is that empowering other women? Is this wrong, shouldn't Kim or any other person be allowed to show off what they are proud of, because, to be fair, she has invested a lot of time and money into that body...

    But at the end of the day, there are no rights and wrongs because it is relative to individual values, their place of socialisation. Chill people, you can't get rid of the photo and you also can't force people to FREE THE NIPPLES (which I do support, Instagram that fudge).

    I don't care and I don't know why anyone cares.

    She does something like this every few weeks anyway. It's not as though we're seeing anything new.

    I get the whole 'free to do whatever you want to' argument. But if that is the case, then surely you should also be free to say whatever you want to also - as in Chloe and whoever else's comments about the picture. There was no need for Kim K to make nasty comments afterwards.

    As for my opinion to her nude pictures - I mean she didn't hurt anyone, but I certainly won't call it classy to continuously post nude pictures for more followers and likes!

    I personally think the fact that this is an issue is a sad indictment of modern society. Kim Kardashian has never contributed to society in any meaningful way, and likely never will. Celebrity culture is just distraction, utterly meaningless besides providing meagre entertainment.

    Her habit of posting provocative pictures is either a desperate lunge for attention and relevance, which to me indicates quite an isolated and superficial individual, or her interpretation of 'empowerment'. If it is the latter, I fail to see how exposing herself in this artificial, filtered way empowers her person or gender? Similiar photos of everyday women, showing the female (and human) form as it is more naturally found (with lumps, bumps and 'imperfections') would be empowerment. Freeing the nipple, refusing to acquiesce to societal expectations is empowerment. Encouraging gender equality (which I, of course, fully support) whilst questioning the concept of an 'ideal' female form is empowerment. The simple fact of the matter however, is that this picture is meaningless due to its source, composition and delivery. As such, it merely fulfills our expectations of celebrity - a fun but utterly pointless form of entertainment - and will simply be gawped at by many without any thought of empowerment or gender equality. Very sad, in every way.

    She's a marketing beauty mogul. Millions of dollars and fame all starting with a sex tape, that's impressive. You don't think so? Make a game about yourself and become the next big freemium mobile game. Go back to your mansion post your nudes online and see how many people get pissed over it.

    And in terms of morality. Isn't a woman allowed to express herself completely? Is a woman stripped of her individuality once a woman is a mother? I believe she should be able to post all her own uncensored nudes if she wants and I don't think being a mother should force people into being asexual nun.

    And all this slut shaming was happening on International Woman's Day...

    It is actually empowering Costello! Plenty of celebrity dads lack clothing on photoshoots but a successful mother does so and it's a sin? People should be free to post themselves if they wanna :')

    It's fine for Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas and loads of other MALES to post half naked pictures, yet the moment a FEMALE does it they are criticised. Let her do what she wants with her body, its 2016 and time to stop with the slut-shaming.
