Sharon Osbourne Defends Calling Kim Kardashian a “Ho”

Last week, a feud seemed to erupt out of nowhere when Sharon Osbourne called Kim Kardashian a “ho” for reasons that still aren’t entirely clear.

The remark was made in an interview with The Telegraph in response to a question about whether Kim is right to consider herself a feminist.

“Kim says she’s doing everything in the name of feminism, but that’s not feminism!” Osbourne told the outlet.

“Those girls live off their bodies, half of L.A. has been through them and everything they do from the sex tape to the plastic see-through dresses and the gym wear is about sex, not female progress.”

Osbourne continued:

“God bless them. If Kim wants to show off her body, fine. But that’s not feminism, that’s being a ho. And there’s nothing wrong with being a ho, but always remember what you are.”

Osbourne’s comments are so loaded with irony that we’d tip our hat if she were making herself look dumb on purpose, but we’re pretty sure that’s not the case.

The idea of a feminist gatekeeper who gets to decide which women are worthy of the title seems rather … anti-feminist.

But Kim didn’t even bother to point that out when she clapped back at Sharon.

Instead, Ms. Kardashian-West merely pointed out that she never claimed she posts nude photos in the name of feminism:

“I think she said I said a quote about, ‘I post nude photos in the name of feminism.’ Never said that. So I think when people misquote you and then comment, it just sounds ridiculous,” Kim said last week.

“I post nude photos because I like how I look and I feel proud when I’ve lost all this baby weight and I post it because I feel like posting it and I feel powerful.”

No one – including Kim Kardashian – is claiming that Kim Kardashian nudes are the 21st Century’s answer to The Feminine Mystique.

Basically, Osbourne built up a curvaceous straw man, gleefully tore it down, and rightfully got called out.

Naturally, she went into damage control mode and began frantically backpedaling during Monday’s episode of her The View knockoff, The Talk:

“It’s so ridiculous how these things happen,” Sharon said.

“I was doing this interview, and (the reporter) said to me ‘have you heard that Kim Kardashian has come out as a feminist’ … and of course I commented.”

Osbourne continued:

“She asked my opinion and I gave it. It wasn’t rude, it wasn’t … whatever (Kim) does, it’s showing her body. Which shows that she’s a strong grounded woman and she’s not ashamed of her body, she wants to show it, which is her business … people have been doing that since day one … it doesn’t make you a feminist.”

We’re not sure we’re following Sharon’s argument here.

It’s something along the lines of: “Someone told me Kim Kardashian said something she never said, so I responded by calling her a ho. What’s the big deal?”

We can understand how Sharon would be so naive as to go on a misogynistic rant in response to unverified information.

It’s not like the woman’s been famous for decades and wound up involved her own share of messy tabloid dramas.

Seriously, though, we’re beginning to understand why Sharon’s defense of her own comments was so lame.

They’re pretty impossible remarks to justify.

Kim Kardashian Responds to Sharon Osbourne: You Sound Ridiculous!

Sharon Osbourne called Kim Kardashian “just a ho,” blasting Kim for the various topless photos that she’s taken over the years and generally calling her a fake feminist.

Even people who like Sharon Osbourne and have their issues with Kim for one thing or another (and who doesn’t?) got their feathers ruffled over that.

As you can imagine, Kim Kardashian didn’t take that criticism lying down. And now she’s responded. …

As you’ll recall, Sharon Osbourne really went off on the reality star and mobile video game creator.

“Kim says she’s doing everything in the name of feminism, but that’s not feminism!”

Incidentally, both of those statements are false.

“Those girls live off their bodies, half of L.A. has been through them and everything they do from the sex tape to the plastic see-through dresses and the gym wear is about sex, not female progress. And listen: God bless them.”

It’s weird for a woman who just slut-shamed the Kardashians (the “half of L.A. has been through them” line) to then try to talk about “female progress.”

And Sharon doubles down on her controversial stance … and stoops to name-calling.

“If Kim wants to show off her body, fine. But that’s not feminism; that’s being a ho.”

She (correctly) adds that it’s not an insult … but it doesn’t quite sound like she means it.

“And there’s nothing wrong with being a ho, but always remember what you are.”

Ugh.

Taking a break from the Harper’s BAZAAR event, “ICONS by Carine Roitfeld,” Kim Kardashian responded to Sharon Osbourne’s words, telling E! exactly what she thought.

It sounds like Kim is basically embarrassed for Sharon.

“First of all, I think she said I said a quote about, ‘I post nude photos in the name of feminism.’ Never said that. So I think when people misquote you and then comment, it just sounds ridiculous.”

Showing as much or little of your body as you like — controlling how you, as a woman, are viewed — is absolutely feminist.

But yeah, Kim Kardashian might get applauded by fellow celebrities for being empowering in the name of feminism, but that doesn’t mean that Kim herself is waving a feminist flag every time that she climbs a tree with her nip nops out.

“I post nude photos because I like how I look and I feel proud when I’ve lost all this baby weight and I post it because I feel like posting it and I feel powerful.”

And you know what? Good for her.

“But I’ve never been like the ‘free the nipple’ kind of girl.”

That would be, like, Kendall. You see her nips all of the time through the thinnest fabrics.

(Nipples are extra hard to miss when they’re pierced)

“So … if I post a photo, I post it because I like how I look. So she kind of misquoted me on that and I thought it just looked really, like stupid.”

That pretty much sums it up.

We can’t help but wonder if part of what was weighing on Sharon Osbourne’s mind wasn’t the overwhelming burden of Kim Kardashian’s nudity.

We also think that it was more than just Sharon Osbourne happening to be old and perhaps struggling to understand modern feminism.

When Sharon was younger, feminism wasn’t nearly as far along. Remember that there was a time when women couldn’t hold certain jobs or could simply be banned from restaurants during certain hours or forbidden from opening their own bank accounts.

There are many battles that feminism wages for gender equality. It’s important to remember that feminism does have some triumphs in its pocket.

But we wonder if Sharon Osbourne was thinking about what almost made her divorce Ozzy Osbourne before the two reconciled.

Ozzy Osbourne cheated on Sharon — not just with one woman, but with at least six.

It could be that Sharon Osbourne wasn’t feeling very sex positive because, so recently, sex was a threat to her marriage.

We hate to sound like armchair psychologists or whatever, psychoanalyzing Sharon, but this sounds like it could be a strong factor behind her thinking.

Baring skin doesn’t make you a “ho,” it just makes you a person whose meat prison is covered with skin that you decided to show.

Being a “ho,” whether you’re merely promiscuous or genuinely a sex worker, is also not a bad thing. It’s your body and you can do what you like with it.

There are many valid criticisms of Kim Kardashian.

From cultural appropriation to siding with people who are in the wrong to using underhanded tactics while feuding, Kim Kardashian has been accused of plenty. And that’s okay to talk about.

We can even question whether Kim is a good feminist or a bad feminist.

But, while not everyone who bares all has feminist intentions, there’s nothing inherently non-feminist about a woman showing off her body.

We do love Sharon Osbourne. We hope that she’ll come to understand this complicated issue.
