Kylie Jenner Celebrates Women’s Day by Drawing Attention to Her Boobs

On the occasion of International Women’s Day yesterday, Kylie Jenner took a moment to remind Instagram followers that she is, indeed, a woman.

By which we mean she shared a picture that drew everyone’s attention to her large breasts.

The 20-year old, who has ramped up her social media use once again after taking approximately nine months off, shared the above selfie on her wildly popular account yesterday, writing a simple two-word caption that was meant to encapsulate a broad concept.

Women’s Day, Kylie said alongside the image.

This was a reference to International Women’s Day, which is held each year on March 8 because it was on that date in 1917 when women in the Soviet Union were granted the right to vote.

In this #MeToo movement climate, yesterday’s holiday became an especially noteworthy occasion.

(Heck, McDonald’s made the grand and very important gesture of turning some of its arches upside down as a tribute!)

So we’re all for Kylie recognizing it and trying to help her fellow females feel empowered these days.

We’re just not entirely sure how this picture accomplishes that goal.

As mentioned previously, Jenner took a social media hiatus for almost the duration of her pregnancy.

She then gave birth to a daughter actually named Stormi on February 1 and has since shared a number of selfies, along with a number of adorable baby photos.

(Have you seen THIS ONE of Jenner’s self-proclaimed “pretty girl?” Cute stuff!)

In this case, of course, Kylie wants the focus to be not just on her, but on her post-pregnancy upper body and how far it has come in about six weeks.

And this is what most followers have chosen to focus on.

“Pregnancy really made her look older in the best way,” wrote on follower in response to this image, while another shared the sentiment:

“She looks more like a woman now.”

Another fan, meanwhile, apparently wanted to take a bite out of Jenner, sounding a lot like Travis Scott with his desire to start banging his girlfriend once again.

“I see you looking like a snack!” this follower wrote as a comment. “What a beauty.”

While we do question Kylie’s motives in sharing a selfie as a tribute to women around the world, we’re mostly joking around here.

However, Kris Jenner posted her own Instagram picture yesterday in honor of this same quasi holiday and was deadly serious in her caption.

Much to the chagrin of some critics around the World Wide Web.

“I’m so proud of my girls and their hearts and what amazing moms they are and their work ethic and how they get up and do their best every single day,” wrote Kris alongside the following image, adding:

“They share, they give back, they care… they are my best friends and my angels! Thank you girls for teaching me how to be better every single moment we share…

“You give me life and I love you.”

She added:

“(of course I love Rob the same but it’s International Women’s Day).”

It’s true. It was International Women’s Day.

Plenty of users just scoffed at Kris choosing to recognizing her own kids on this occasion, especially considering their wealth and status, as opposed to the women out there whose work ethic involves getting up early everyday to go and work three jobs, for example…

… as opposed to the Kardashian woman who mostly take off a few layers of clothing and then sit back and watch the Likes pile up.

But that’s a debate to be had on a different day, we suppose.

Overall, let’s all simply agree that the future is female. Rock on, ladies!


McDonald’s Flips Its Arches Upside Down for International Women’s Day

Today is International Women's Day!

If you've noticed a McDonald's sign where its famous golden arches are turned upside-down to form what looks like a yellow "W," no, it's not an elaborate prank.

McDonald's has simply chosen this as a symbolic gesture to celebrate International Women's Day.

Obviously, the yellow "M" doesn't stand for "men" the other 364 days of the year.

But, as McDonald's announced via Twitter, they wanted to celebrate the role that women play in the world and in their company.

"Today, we flip our Golden Arches to celebrate the women who have chosen McDonald's to be a part of their story."

And here's a dazzling statistic that some may find surprising.

"In the U.S. we’re proud to share that 6 out of 10 restaurant managers are women."

Managers aren't the same as owners or board members, but that's not nothing, folks.

Not all restaurants flipped their signs, but a number have.

(You can see some of those in the video below)

Apparently 100 different McDonald's restaurants have the upside-down "packaging, crew shirts and hats, and bag stuffers" to celebrate on Thursday.

Responses have varied, and the move is certainly getting a lot of attention and free publicity.

Some who aren't on social media might have forgotten that Thursday was International Women's Day at all if the story weren't getting so much buzz.

Wendy Lewis, McDonald's Chief Diversity Officer, elaborated on the company's motives behind the gesture.

"In celebration of women everywhere, and for the first time in our brand history, we flipped our iconic arches for International Women's Day in honor of the extraordinary accomplishments of women everywhere and especially in our restaurants."

She continues:

"From restaurant crew and management to our C-suite of senior leadership, women play invaluable roles at all levels, and together with our independent franchise owners, we're committed to their success."

That's … a very corporate-sounding message, but there's nothing wrong with that.

Entertainingly, for copyright purposes, a lot of Japanese animation has, for years, featured characters attending unnamed fast food restaurants to eat burgers and fries.

These restaurants are represented by giant yellow "W" signs, clearly representative of McDonald's without directly infringing upon their trademark.

This ongoing workaround trope has led a number of anime fans to refer to such restaurants as "WacDonald's."

As a result, some people have joked on social media that anime McDonald's franchises had been celebrating International Women's Day for years.

Some on social media have joked that McDonald's now has grounds to sue "every anime ever made," though we don't know that the legal argument would hold up in court.

It is strongly unlikely that corporate leadership of McDonald's had this in mind when they decided on this gesture.

Overall, responses have varied.

Some suggest that this symbolic move is "reductive," akin to offering pink things to "celebrate" women in an empty gesture that is almost insulting.

Some have pointed to the "W" signs as seeming like something out of a The Onion article.

And then some put the restaurant on blast, writing: "Instead of empty gestures like flipping your arches, how about improving working conditions for your women workers?"

Others, however, point out that International Women's Day is a holiday and that McDonald's putting up decorations is a nice reminder.

Take a look at this short video showing a few examples of the fast food franchise's transformed signs.
