"Think Kendall Jenner gives a fuck? Turned 18 like 2 minutes ago and already instagramming her titites all over the Internet. Say what you want about the Kardashians but nobody uses smut like they do to get ahead. Just boobs and cunts and getting stuffed everywhere."
There are so many things that I find utterly repulsive about Bartstool Sports but let’s start with the overwhelming amount of slut shaming.
Kendall is 18, she is taking ownership of her body by sharing this on her Instagram. Also, that’s not smut. It’s art. And in that vain, why must a woman’s body - when not covered up as per the normative societal standard - be considered smut?
Which leads me to wonder why slut shaming someone on an incredibly misogynistic website is a reasonable way to “get ahead” but experimenting with artistic interpretations of the human figure, also known as modeling, is not.*
So let’s conclude this thought in the most logical way, because slut shaming inevitably leads to victim blaming and the perpetuation of rape culture. That last sentence, boiling an 18 year old down to her anatomy and the sexualization of her anatomy, is how one perpetuates rape culture.
So all in all, Barstool Sports, you create the worst kind of people. Congratulations on contributing to the growth of the most misogynistic kind of assholes, of which we surely could do without.
*Edit: I want to be clear that I am not trying to glorify the modeling industry. But maybe I’ll save that conversation for another post.
