I never in a million years thought I’d ever say this- but I feel sorry for Kim Kardashian. I don’t care that she’s repeatedly thrust herself in the public eye. I don’t care that she’s made some questionable wardrobe choices as a pregnant woman. I don’t even care if her weight gain is all an attempt to cash in on some weight loss product deal. All this media hullabaloo & tabloid nonsense is just plain cruel. It’s simple as that.
I would guess that Kim has developed some pretty thick skin given she’s been in the spotlight for a number of years now. But I would also guess that no matter how thick her skin is, all this fat shaming stings. Pregnancy is tough folks. I’ve been through it twice- each time gaining over 40 pounds. You’re nourishing another human being. You’re also experiencing weird hormonal cravings. I’ll go out on a limb here and say that if there’s ever a time in a person’s life where they should get a pass on body image and scale related anxiety, it’s during the 9 crazy months of pregnancy.
And to those who look at these magazine covers and get a heady thrill of self-satisfaction, boo hiss to you.
