Gloria Steinem "Kim Kardashian is NOT Public Property"
In response to critics who have made negative comments about Kardashian's pregnancy weight, Steinem tells Us Weekly,
"If our bodies are treated as ornaments instead of instruments ... it's an effort to distract us. So don't be distracted. Why bother getting caught up in that?"
"Our bodies are never public property under any circumstance," Steinem tells Us. "It's wrong, and people in the street who feel the right to touch a pregnant woman's belly ought to be arrested for harassment. Our bodies belong to us, and if we don't invite touching, we shouldn't tolerate it."
UGH! Get over it you ancient, humorless, bitchy women's libber!

Gloria, have you missed that she shamelessly whores herself out to the media? She thrives on attention, postive or negative.
Oh please - Kardashian has made herself into an ongoing public spectacle that depends on non-stop comment. If she doesn't like it then it's her own fault.
You'd think Steinem would be smart enough to pick a better example.
He's hoping Kim's demon spawn kills her during delivery and the spawn's first meal is Gloria.
Who the hell is Gloria Steinem and why am I supposed to care what she says?
"Kim Kardashian is NOT Public Property"
Then why does she keep acting like she is?
Kim is such a phony, I really can't stand her. Wish I never had to hear her name again.
Steinem degrades herself here. Next up: some kind of march with Amanda Bynes
Like I've always said, the gossip press are like vampires - they can't feed on you unless you invite them in.
Kim Kardashian has invited the world into her home, and even into her coochie, and asked them to admire her body all along the way. Now that her body has changed, she can't stop what she's started.
all you mother-hating men should take a gender class so you can learn a few things about women, history..and yourself. It's a real shame that you want to walk around coveting what women have physically and yet you hate what women represent. You're too weak to be a woman. Don't be mad. Do yourself and everyone a favor. Open a book and educate yourself. Shame on you haters.
Gloria Steinem? God, is that old cunt still alive?
R11, go back to your cave and crawl back in. "You want to walk around coveting what women have physically." Give it a rest.
WTF is R11 going on about?
Gloria is wrong about this. kim kardashian is a attention seeking piece of trash. She made a sex tape and had her mother broker the deal to sell/release it to the public. The tape consists of getting pissed on and blowing her boyfriend for about 40 minutes and getting fucked every which way
She got married for money and attention. And she did it all publicly on a damn reality show. She does everything publicly
She MAKES/MADE herself public property. She did this to herself. And I seriously think she goes out in these ridiculous, hideous looking clothes (more like costumes) so she will get more press attention
Oh please! She's the town bike...everyone's had a ride. I'd say KK is the very definition of public property.
As a California taxpayer, I resent the fact that the state's tourism board is showing commercials featuring KK. I hope none of my tax dollars went into her pocket.
Oh dear god. Instead blaming Kim Kardashian herself for knowingly and willingly making herself public property Ms. Steinem turns her into a victim.
What Old Glo' should've said was, "Hey! Kardashian! Stop using a woman's oldest trick in the book - whoring oneself - to get attention and actually do something with your life!"
I'm a woman who does not like other women. I admit it. Women are perpetual victims, nothing more.
No matter how many laws are passed to make sure women are never,ever offended in the workplace, no matter how many entitlements women are given - we, overall as a group, are still nothing but whiny victims who use their looks and use sex to get what they want and then cry sexism when it blows up in our faces. And it still works!!!
Old Glo'? The year is 2013, American women have more choices than they have ever had before.
If a woman living in an advanced Western nation makes a concious decision to distribute a sex tape of herself and her boyfriend gettin' on and happily accept the millions of dollars from the reality show that is built around it then let her take the negativity and the flak that come with making decisions like that. (Especially when that woman is wealthy and priviledged and had every advantage and every resource at her disposal growing up and still conciously decided to become a media whore.)
Rather than worry about Kim Kardashian, and her even uglier, piggier sisters, take a trip to India where you might be of some use.
Kardashian herself has stated, "I'm running a business." Not public property, sheesh, someone may want to point that out to Miss Kim. Well probably not, it would probably come across as sexist.
Approximately 400 men would beg to differ.
Bitch been throwin' that cat at err'one for 16 years. She may not be YO property, but she damn sure is for sale.
How does Steinem make money? And don't tell me from Ms. Magazine. Has she ever held a real job of any kind? It doesn't make sense to me. Did she marry a rich man?
Famewhores are anyone's property who give them the attention, fame, and money they crave.
This is out of character for Gloria. She should get to a doctor. Seriously, we might be hearing soon that she is sick. Mark my words.
I wonder if Kim has to use a putty knife to scrap the cum build up off the walls of her vagina?
She's not? In my culture a woman like her will be called a bus because anyone can get on a bus, which I'm sure is a public property.
Actually, it's pretty creepy how strangers walk up to pregnant women and touch their bellies. Wtf is that? Would you appreciate random strangers touching your stomach?
[quote] Do yourself and everyone a favor. Open a book and educate yourself.
Why don't you educate YOURSELF about this trashy family. kim kardashian is purposefully dressing to make herself look super fat so that she can get a big $$$$$ contract with a weight loss company after she gives birth to her bastard child while still married to another man. Neither of those men is the man she proudly had piss all over her in their sex tape, which she went on to share with the public - for more $$$$$$. This skank has NO shame. She's done more to degrade women's rights. I don't know why anyone would defend her. This whole 'fat thing' is just another scam by the kardashian skank.
I agree but Steinem is missing the point - that Kim and the Kuntrashians have marketed themselves to everyone as merchandise.
One can't be an attention whore and then cry, whine, fan oneself and do the dance of the seven veils crying "you've violated my privacy".
There's nothing about that media whore that isn't public. The bitch puts it all out there.

You'd have to be able to count to seven to get there.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
