I’ve received over 1000 DMs asking me to address this. The reason I didn’t jump on it immediately isn’t because I don’t think the post was damaging and disappointing. I do. It’s because the fact that you’re all messaging me about it, shows my work is done. I havent been trying to cancel Kim K. I was always trying to arm YOU with the knowledge to recognize for YOURSELVES that this is a bullshit expectation of women, developed by the patriarchy. If YOU know that it’s problematic, reductive and irresponsible for her to perpetuate such a heavily impossible beauty standard to her impressionable fans… then you’re empowered and conscious and don’t need me. Kim, like many of us, has had decades of body image issues and obsession. This has been HEAVILY perpetuated by how much the media scrutinized her and her sisters over their appearances. She isn’t actively trying to harm you. She’s just so harmed and deluded into thinking this is what SHE needs to look like to be special and beautiful and she’s spilling it out onto her following. Is this wrong? YES. But I’m not sure she realizes that she’s doing to others what her idols did to her, in making her think a tiny waist is the key to femininity and sex appeal. We grew up in the era of Heroin Chic, where we were told you HAD to look like an addict starving to death, so to go from that..to being bullied about your body by the world? This toxicity from someone who is smart and knows better, is a sign that this is harm she can’t stop doing. So there’s no point in screaming at her. The smart thing to do is to protect YOURSELF. YOU have the power. YOU control every Market. YOU choose what and who is trendy. Unfollow the people who tell you things that hurt your self esteem. Don’t let the debris of their damage spill out onto you. Unfollow people/brands that don’t make you feel powerful and happy and grateful for what you have. You’re the boss and none of them are shit without you. THE PATRIARCHY WANTS US TO FOCUS ON OUR WEIGHT INSTEAD OF POWER, EQUALITY AND PSYCHOLOGICAL FREEDOM. FUCK ANYONE WHO ENCOURAGES THIS. BLOCK. MUTE. DELETE. REPEAT. Follow activists, writers, artists and comedians instead❤️
” It’s because the truth that you’re all messaging me regarding it reveals my job is done. I have not been trying to cancel Kim K,” Jameela proceeded. “I was always trying to arm YOU with the expertise to identify for YOURSELVES that this is a bullish * t expectation of females, created by the patriarchy. If YOU know that it’s bothersome, reductive, and reckless for her to continue such a greatly difficult charm standard to her impressionable followers … then you’re empowered and mindful and do not need me.”
Jameela took place to observe that Kim “has had decades of body picture issues and fascination. This has been HEAVILY bolstered by how much the media scrutinized her and her sis over their appearances. She isn’t actively trying to hurt you. She’s so hurt and deluded into believing this is what SHE needs to look like to be special and lovely, and she’s spilling it out onto her following.”
The starlet and lobbyist likewise kept in mind that complying with these kinds of charm criteria is “incorrect.” Nonetheless, she added, “I’m not sure she recognizes that she’s doing to others what her idols did to her, in making her assume a tiny waistline is crucial to feminineness and sex appeal … This poisoning from someone that is smart and recognizes much better is a sign that this is injury she can not stop doing.”
Jameela has been an ardent movie critic of the Kardashian females’ charm lines for some time and has critiqued Khloe Kardashian and even more family members before. Complying with some even more selection words, Jameela motivated her fans to “Block. Mute. Remove. Repeat.” She additionally added, “Do not allow the particles of their damages spill out onto you.

You’re the one in charge, and none of them are sh * t without you.”
