Kim Kardashian is fed up with the negative reaction to her naked Instagram selfie -- and took to her blog this afternoon to shut up her haters with a lengthy post about female empowerment and sexuality.
The reality TV star once again made the Internet explode on Monday when she posted a nude photo to her social networking pages. It quickly went viral, with stars like Bette Midler and Chloe Grace Moretz either joking about or putting down Kim's decision to share her bod with the world.
After telling her critics to "move on," she adds, "I shouldn't have to constantly be on the defense, listing off my accomplishments just to prove that I am more than something that happened 13 years ago."
As for why she just loves to share such revealing pictures with her fans, she says it makes her feel "empowered."
"I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin," she writes. "I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me."
She goes on to thank her hubby, Kanye West, for his support and for giving her "newfound confidence" ... and expresses gratitude to the "strong, driven, independent women" she's grown up with. Kim adds that she hopes to share these ideas with daughter North, who she hopes is "comfortable in her body" as she grows up.
"I don't want her to grow up in a world where she is made to feel less-than for embracing everything it means to be a woman," Kim continues.
"The body-shaming and slut-shaming - it's like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me," she adds in conclusion. "I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy."
