Selfie Solidarity! Kim Kardashian Sent Emily Ratajkowski Flowers for Defending Her Nude Photos
Emily Ratajkowski supported Kim Kardashian's decision to bare it all on Instagram
Model Emily Ratajkowski – who posted her own nude mirror pic after Kardashian West broke the Internet last week – tweeted a photo of the reality star’s fragrant gesture Monday.
“Thank you for the beautiful flowers and note @kimkardashian,” wrote Ratajkowski, 24. “It’s so important that we let women express their sexuality and share their bodies however they choose.”
The Gone Girl actress also shared a quote by 18th century anarchist and feminist activist Emma Goldman: “Merely external emancipation has made of the modern woman an artificial being. Now, woman is confronted with the necessity of emancipating herself from emancipation, if she really desires to be free.”
“I don’t do drugs, I hardly drink, I’ve never committed a crime – and yet I’m a bad role model for being proud of my body?” she wrote. “It always seems to come back around to my sex tape. Yes, a sex tape that was made 13 years ago. 13 YEARS AGO. Literally that lonnng ago. And people still want to talk about it?!?!”
“I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin,” she added. “It’s 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming – it’s like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me.”
