Kim Kardashian posted a lengthly blog on Monday night about being a feminist. The reality star, however, denied being one — but, suggested she simply has a mindset of a feminist. Oooook, so help us out here, Kimmy Kakes.

The mother of two detailed her thought process on the word, specifically, why she doesn’t like to put herself into the feminism category.

In the blog post titled, “Why I Don’t Label Myself a Feminist,” Kanye West’s wife first described the word as “someone who advocates for the civil and social rights and liberties of all people, regardless of their gender; anyone who believes that women should have the same choices and opportunities as men when it comes to education and employment, their bodies and their lifestyles.”

Kardashian continued, “Of course I want these things! I’m all about empowering and uplifting women. Obviously, there are things about me that people might say make me a feminist: I work hard, I make my own money, I’m comfortable and confident in my own skin, and I encourage women to be open and honest about their sexuality, and to embrace their beauty and their bodies.”

She explained, “But why do we have to put labels on things? You’re Republican, you’re Democrat, you’re bisexual, you’re plus-size, you’re poor, you’re a criminal, you’re a mother, you’re a feminist. I’m a human being, and I have thoughts, feelings and opinions about a lot of different things.”

“I don’t need to be defined by those beliefs, just as much as I don’t want to be set apart from—or viewed as being against—those who DO define themselves by those beliefs,” the beauty wrote.

She concluded by writing, “Being grouped or labeled can create separation between people who do (or don’t) fall into certain categories, when they may actually share many of the same beliefs and goals. It’s not about he, she, gay, straight, black, white. The fight for equality is about ALL human beings being treated equally—regardless of gender, sexuality or ethnicity. It’s simply a personal choice that I don’t like the idea of being labeled.”

She added, “But, at the end of the day, no one should feel pressured to be labeled as anything just because they believe in certain things and support certain values or ideals.”

Of course, the 35-year-old is entitled to her own opinion — but she has gone on record to call herself a mother and has opened up about being someone of faith. We’d say, those are two pretty specific labels.
