In the past the Kardashian has said that she doesn’t idenfiy as a feminist, but she told Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, “I said once before that I’m not really a feminist, but I feel I do a lot more than people that clain that they’re feminist. I feel in my soul I’m a feminist. I just don’t need label to make me feel or know what I am inside.”
Some were on board with the Kimojis.

I don’t get why. Women should love their bodies and feel safe and free enough to flaunt them as they please. These emojis just say that to me.
