Slut Shaming Kim Kardashian!




This post is about slut shaming, from the point of view of Hannah from the YouTube channels YayHanYay and Hanna BooksAndBeauty.  We will look at two recent videos from Hannah on this topic, and then, just for fun, watch one of her very early, and very funny, videos!

I have been a fan of Hannah since she started sharing videos some 5 years ago.  It has always been apparent to me that she is witty and intelligent.  She makes thoughtful comments on the books she reads, and she reads a lot!  Hannah can improvise and has comic sensibility and timing that seem natural and not forced.  You can see some of that in the last video below.

But first, let's see what Hannah has to say about a recent picture that Kim Kardashian posted in a tweet, with "breasts covered and her lady garden covered."  In other words Kim Kardashian was naked but not exposed.  That tweet received many different replies, some of which Hannah feels can be considered slut shaming.  Hannah does not care for labels and feels that it is "damaging and leads to darker places".  Hannah points out the double standard between the sexual stigmatization of female versus male behavior, and notes that when women are calling other women sluts, they are making it okay for society to say it to women.

Hannah talks about replies to Kim Kardashian's photo from Chloë Grace Moretz, Lena Dunham, Amber Rose and Pink.  She feels that it was absolutely fine for Kim Kardashian to post that pic because she builds a good part of her career around how she looks, both stylishly dressed and at her discretion, undressed.  Hanna says that women's breasts and bodies are sexualized by society, and that women are much more than just their bodies, they are human beings who are multi-dimensional -- they may be a mom, business woman, wife, sister, daughter.

Hannah feels that women should be able to do what they want and be what they want.  Women can be a model or they can be a scientist; whatever their goal is, they should go for it! Watch the entire video and listen to many other points she makes, in addition to the ones discussed above.



Hannah says in the description, "We shouldn't be soooo offended by someone being naked....ITS COMPLETELY NATURAL!! And if you slut shame a women just know your shaming us all! ♡ Lets Chat! ♡" The chatting has begun in the video's comments. Watch the video and join in the chat!

Now we'll see a book review by Hannah, which touches on many of the same topics. Here, Hannah reviews a Young Adult (YA) book called THE DUFF, by Kody Keplinger. Duff is an acronym for "Designated Ugly Fat Friend." The book was turned into a movie which was released on February 20, 2015. Hannah reviews only the book, and considers it one of the worst books she has come across! She backs up her assessment with many examples of the damage to girls from words and attitudes which are described in the book. Watch Hannah's review and I think you'll want to see more book reviews from Hannah!



Let's go 5 years back in time and see an early funny video from Hannah on her original channel. The above videos are from Hannah's Books and Beauty Channel. Here is a classic Hannah video where she comments on one of her own videos. She makes cultural references and observes that we should make friends but we should not be pressured into doing so. I like to imagine that Hannah had a few key words on a cue card and just improvised her dialog based on the topics she wanted to touch upon. If you like this video, subscribe and comment, because "every comment helps!"



See more of Hannah at her Vlog Channel, where she talks about Breasts, Cultural Appropriation, Political Correctness, Feminism and much more!
