NSFW: Kim vs Kiera – The War On Photoshop Continues

Kim Kardashian West has once again done what she does best and caused a whole lot of controversy. The reality star has posed nude for the cover of U.S magazine Paper with the headline “Break The Internet.” Admittedly, I’m one of the few fans of Mrs. Kardashian West. In fact, I’ve even written an article about why we should be thanking Kim but when I saw this new picture of Kim’s ass that’s all over the internet I was saddened. Not at the fact that she’s naked or at the fact that she’s a mother but at the fact that she was happy letting a photo of herself out in the world that’s so blatantly photoshopped.

Kim bares all but how much is natural?

Kim bares all but how much is natural?

In a pretty naive moment I actually thought we’d all moved on from photoshop. Over the past ten years society has moved on in terms of what it deems ‘normal’ or ‘beautiful.’ We’ve become more accepting of natural sizes and turned flaws into flawlessness. Or so I thought. There’s no denying that this picture of Kim with her ass out, waist in, has been photoshopped. Inches have been erased from her waist and added to her backside to make her look completely unreal and unnatural. I admire Kim for her curves and showing off her enviable figure but there’s no need for this. It doesn’t look nice and how can she even stand up straight with an ass like that?

What bothers me the most is the attention Kim’s picture is getting. I’m sure everyone has seen it by now, whether they wanted to or not. But what about Kiera Knightley’s topless photo that she spoke about earlier this week. How many people have seen that? In a brave and commendable move the actress decided to pose topless for Interview magazine back in August and has recently revealed the reasons why. She did it under the condition that she wouldn’t be photoshopped. Why would someone even think of photoshopping her in the first place? Maybe because, like the majority of women out there, her breasts aren’t exactly perfectly aligned or even the same shape. Basically, in an unprecedented move, Kiera showed the world what a real female body can look like.

Both Kim Kardashian West and Kiera Knightley are beautiful women. They’ve made names for themselves in their own rights and while I’m usually the only one in the room who has a nice word to say about Kim I find myself agreeing with the people who are slamming her latest photoshoot. Why does a naturally beautiful woman feel the need to distort her image so much? And why am I giving her more time in this article than Kiera? I’ve gained so much more respect for Kiera Knightley as a woman after that shot but still I find myself talking about Kim. Breaking the internet was her goal and she definitely achieved it. Maybe it’s easier to talk about what’s wrong with things rather than what’s right. I don’t know, but I certainly know who I think looks better in their respective photos.

By talking about Kim we’re highlighting the fact that the use of such extreme photoshop is wrong but is the fact that we’re giving more time to Kim’s unnatural ass than Kiera’s actual real boobs a good thing or a bad thing? Let us know what you think of the photos in the comment section below.
