Kanye West wants to redesign Instagram | Fox News

Not “I’m going to pose proudly;” “I should pose proudly”–as if someone else is dictating the rules regarding how to look when posing in a bathing suit. “I’m so not that girl! But I work hard, I deserve it right [sic],” Jennifer’s caption asks the viewer, giving him or her the power to decide. Kim Kardashian was one of the first celebrity mothers to share this type of post-baby-body weight-loss selfie, but she took direct ownership about why she chose to do it. “This is my big, like, middle finger to the world on everyone that called me fat,” Kim Jay Leno, adding that the public scrutiny of her pregnancy weight gain, “really hurt my soul.” She went on to say that losing the weight was “the hardest challenge of [her] life.” Related: 10 Smart Food Swaps for Faster Weight Loss That’s right, it took Kim Kardashian to articulate the problem here. The constant media attention and public fixation on pregnant women’s bodies (whether the person is a celebrity or not) has turned a perfectly natural biological and evolutionary process–gaining weight to nourish a fetus, then shedding some or all of that weight once the baby arrives–into a Herculean challenge at which we can either succeed or fail.

And when said photo gets shared, people write articles pointing out that someone “achieved her weight goal about two years ago and hasn’t slipped since.” Imagine losing weight, feeling great about yourself, and sharing a photo of your happiness–only to have someone remark that you haven’t “slipped” yet. It’s so undermining. In these photos, clearly taken at moments of contentment, Jessica, Jennifer, and other women shouldn’t have to question if they have the “right” to share them or whether or not one “should” pose proudly in a bathing suit.
