Shameful Specimens: Kylie Jenner Edition

Shameful Specimens: Kylie Jenner Edition

Helloooo everyone and welcome to a new edition of Shameful Specimens. Usually I don’t care to put celebrities “on blast” but I hardly consider Kylie Jenner worthy of being called a celebrity, so it’s okay. I had the misfortune of stumbling upon Jenner’s disgusting photo shoot for Interview magazine and I just had to say something. Especially as someone who:

  • Has a brother with special needs
  • Β Is a figure skating coach for the Special Olympics
  • Has a job interviewing people with developmental disabilities to help provide them with the best services and care possible
  • Has a mother who is a developmental pediatrician
  • Also, as someone who sees the glamorization of disabilities as severely wrong

I’m not going to post the pictures because I don’t care to, but if you haven’t seen them – just think of a blow up doll sitting in a wheelchair with a blank expression and a rigid body. Then in other pictures imagine the same thing except with Kylie’s legs lifted in a position that a wheelchair bound person more than likely can’t achieve on their own. I saw these pictures and they made me sick.

Anyone with an ounce of intelligence or sensitivity would know that these photos are offensive. These photos show a disabled person as powerless and as if to make it worse, Jenner is wearing fetish style garb which enhances this statement even more. It really is just shameful and I’m baffled as to why anyone thought that this was a good idea. Disabilities aren’t a fashion statement.

Clearly, the Jenner/Kardashian clan who never had to work for anything in their life compliments of Kim’s sex tape have never encountered anyone less than perfect, by their standards. Had they ever had one day in the real world, interacting with normal people, they would meet someone bound to a wheelchair, someone with an amputation, or a developmental disability and realize just how wrong this photo shoot is.

Get off your high horses, come down from whatever high you’re on that makes you so gassed up as to think that you can’t do anything wrong or offensive and at least apologize to a community that has a difficult time enough as is. I praise those who have voiced their distaste for this “high fashion” shoot via social media and I adore the photos that people have posted in their wheelchairs with captions such as my personal favorite, “Oh I see! When I’m in my wheelchair no one can look me in the eye but when Kylie Jenner sits in a wheelchair it’s FASHION. silly me,” from @amysgotmilk on Twitter.

Usually I bite my tongue when it comes to celebrity offenses and mishaps but I just had to take a stand on this because it really is shameful and it hits so close to home for me. Kylie Jenner, you are my Shameful Specimen of the week and I hope you grow up and mature enough to understand the severity of your little photo shoot.

So there you have it, this week’s Shameful Specimens: Kylie Jenner edition. I know I’m going to get some backlash for this and I don’t care. I can’t stand the Kardashian/Jenner family as is so let’s add some fuel to the fire. Who has seen Kylie Jenner’s Interview photo shoot? What did you think about it? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Whatsup everyone and TGIF! So last night I had the misfortune of stumbling upon pictures of the outfits Miley Cyrus wore during her stint at hosting the VMA’s and all I have is one word to sum up my feelings: SHAMEFUL!!!! I refuse to post pictures of her to add to her popularity as a so called “celebrity” but I do have some general opinions about Miss Cyrus, considering she’s setting a horrid example for young people everywhere, so let’s discuss with some Lil Red Words Of Wisdom:

  • ACT LIKE A LADY! Yeah, that’s right. I get that Miley doesn’t want to be a role model for anyone and yada, yada, yada but dude, you have a little sister. What the hell kind of a role model are you to her? Not a very good one. Put some clothes on, stick your tongue back in your fucking mouth, and get some class.
  • Reevaluate your career…seriously: People might be curious as to why young people, like myself, despise Cyrus so much and the answer is simple…She’s literally giving the teens and twenty-somethings across the globe a bad name. FYI – not every millennial is a sex crazed druggie with a fetish for putting their assets on display every chance they get. I can’t name one person in my vast social circle in real life or via social media who likes her, so clearly she’s doing nothing right with her career. #obviously
  • Drop the “I’m cool because I smoke weed” act: You’re not. Do I have a problem with people who smoke? No, absolutely not and I firmly believe that marijuana should be legalized in all fifty states. Do I have a problem with people who flaunt their habits for the world to see? Yes, I do. It’s trashy and NO ONE CARES!!! Those who partake in good ol’ Mary Jane are no cooler than the people who don’t. Put your joint away and shut the fuck up. Thanks! ❀
  • Get back in touch with your roots: Yeah, we get it – you’re too old for the Disney channel, hence why you’ve been flashing your cooch for everyone. BUT, before Miley turned into the most Shameful Specimen that I can think of, she was sweet, wholesome, and had a lot of people looking up to her. Cyrus claims that she’s “all grown up” but she has so much maturing to do that it’s not even funny. No sane grown up would enter into a concert venue on a giant inflatable penis. Such trash.

^^^ Lol, it seemed appropriate! πŸ˜‰

So do I sound bitchy? Probably. Do I care? Absolutely not. I REFUSE to ever be associated with the crass classlessness that is Miley Cyrus merely because we’re in the same age group. Cyrus should take a lesson from all of the teens and twenty-somethings that are out in the world making amazing things happen because of sheer talent and hard work – not because ninety-seven percent of their clothes is off. What does everyone think of Miley? Who is one celebrity that you really can’t stand? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

PS: Sorry for the rant, but I really had to get these feelings off of my chest. I was seriously so disgusted by the VMA outfit pics that I wanted to throw up everywhere! πŸ™‚
