Kim Kardashian, queen of contouring, is being praised for her latest “unfiltered selfie.” Let’s talk about it. On March 6, the 42-year-old reality TV star shared a makeup-free-ish selfie straight from the dentist’s chair, disposable pink bib and all. Fans of the Skims founder were quick to flood her comments with the usual jokes, adoration, and emoji, but many also began to argue over her use of filters — or lack thereof.
However, many were quick to suggest that even a more natural-appearing Kardashian selfie is likely still tweaked before being added to the ‘gram. “See!!! Shut up all those haters she’s unfiltered unedited and still the most beautiful of all time,” one fan wrote. Another user replied to that comment directly, writing, “I love Kim and she’s beautiful but this is still edited.”
Here are two things that are true:
- Women deserve to post a selfie without being bombarded with comments and questions about filters, fillers, Botox, and natural signs of aging.
- There’s nothing wrong with using filters, fillers, and/or Botox, nor is there anything wrong with choosing to go without.
