Kendall Jenner Denies Being A Feminist, But Gave A 'Valid' Reason
Kendall Jenner does not identify herself as a feminist but does not shun it like other female celebrities do as well. Kendall, who may have irked many because of her family and their infamous reality show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” is not always lauded for what she says, but how she articulated herself when she denied being a feminist wowed many.
Huffington Post reports that Kendall Jenner’s response to a recent Sunday Times interviewer asking her thoughts on feminism showed how much the model had grown and became mature in her own way. The reality said no when Ruby Warrington the interviewer asked her if she is a feminist, but she did it with no spite against the movement or the people who supports it. Instead, she said that she cannot really speak on it because she “does not know much about it.” She also said she is willing to be more educated on it.
Stars such as Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Emma Watson have long joined the movement and put the word and debate on feminism back on the map. They somehow made it mainstream again to discuss gender equality and the underlying issues still unresolved until now. That is why, whenever female stars themselves would try to distance themselves from the movement or refuse to label themselves feminists because of some “inaccurate” understanding of the movement, they cannot help but rub feminists or those who support gender equality the wrong way, no matter how they justify their positions. Examples of such stars are Ilana Glazer, Abbi Jacobson and “Divergent” star Shailene Woodley. Most of them believe that feminism is equivalent to man-hating and they would somehow, disappoint their fans. Kendall’s response therefore, is considered the best way to respond when one is not sure whether she aligns with the feminist movement or not.
Kendall did not have it easy, growing up in the public limelight because of her family’s controversial reality show and because of her equally controversial family, which includes sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashain and Kylie Jenner. There is also her mom Kris Jenner and then dad, Caitlyn Jenner (previously known as Bruce Jenner), who is making the headlines for days now because of her Variety magazine cover, showing off her transformation into a female.
This is why on her most recent ET Online interview, she clarified yet again that growing up on her part had been difficult, even if other people cannot see it. “I feel like this life comes with so many blessings but it’s also just difficult…” she shared. “It's extremely difficult and you are growing and making mistakes and everyone is judging you,” she added.Read more here:red carpet dresses
