Kim Kardashian addresses in a new post on her site the social media response to her nude selfies, stressing that she’s “empowered by [her] body” and “allowed to be sexy,” but “enough is enough” with people “body-shaming and slut-shaming” her. As Gossip Cop previously reported, after a few detractors, including Chloe Moretz, Piers Morgan, and Bette Midler, attacked her for posting naked pictures of herself, Kardashian slammed back on Twitter.

Now, the reality star is laying bare in a long post how she feels about herself, her body, and others who have a problem it. Kardashian begins, “I wanted to write a post elaborating on my tweets last night. In all seriousness, I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives.” She notes, “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 then confronts her sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J. “It always seems to come back around to my sex tape… That was made 13 years ago… And people still want to talk about it?!” Kardashian acknowledges, “I lived through the embarrassment and fear,” adding, “Let’s move on, already. I have.”

Mostly, Kardashian explains in her post, “I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me.” She expresses the “hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world.”

The entrepreneur also thanks her husband Kanye West, who she says is “so accepting and supportive and who has given me a newfound confidence in myself. He allows me to be me and loves me unconditionally.” Furthermore, Kardashian shares, “I feel so lucky to have grown up surrounded by strong, driven, independent women. The life lessons I’ve learned from my sisters, my mother and my grandmother, I will pass along to my daughter. I want her to be proud of who she is. I want her to be comfortable in her body.”

On International Women’s Day, Kardashian points out, “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.” She concludes, “I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy.”
