Kim Kardashian: The Pot Calling the Kettle Black

I read a story about 90 teens from a high school in Memphis, Tennessee who are pregnant or gave birth this year. Kim Kardashian read the same article and was horrified. She believes the phenomenon of MTV shows like Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant aren’t setting a good example for young women. I laughed when I heard this and had to ask, “Is this the pot calling the kettle black?” I’m sure the millions of parents whose young daughters watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Kim Take New York feel the same way. While Ms. Kardashian is entitled to her opinion, she may want to think before she passes judgment.

Ms. Kardashian was married at the age of 19 and made a sex tape. Of course, the sex tape ended up in the wrong hands and a lawsuit unfolded. How is this setting an example for young women? She made a sex tape that’s supposed to be private but it ended up in the hands of people who stood to make millions off of it. Obviously, it’s a decision she regrets. She admitted she was young and didn’t know any better. This is like the teens who end up on Teen Mom and 16 & Pregnant — they probably didn’t know any better.

Kim Kardashian has new reality show with her slightly older sister Kourtney. How is partying New York and hooking up with guys setting a good example for young women? What message does this send to them? If you’re single and ready to mingle, go ahead without knowing anything about the person. I personally don’t believe ‘casual sex’ is a good thing because it can lead to heartache, and yes, an unwanted pregnancy. Most women say they’re open to having casual flings but deep down inside they want a committed relationship.

Everyone has a right to their opinion, even celebrities. Before they give it, they may want to think about the words coming out of their mouths. They may want to think about when they were teens or in their 20s and how they lived their life. No one is perfect. When you don’t come from the same economic background as people, it may be difficult to relate to them, unless, of course, you put yourself in their shoes.
