HOLLYWOOD – Kim Kardashian and Bette Midler have chosen to celebrate International Women’s Day by bitching about bullshit, it was revealed.
First Kim Kardashian posted a picture of herself wearing nothing but oblong strips of blackness, presumably in honor of Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 science fiction epic 2001 a Space Odyssey. Then Bette Midler pointed out that Kim’s over-exposure meant that the only part of her anatomy we haven’t seen would have to be an internal organ. Then things got nasty and dull at almost exactly the same time. Then more nudity. And to top it off Piers Morgan got involved because Piers Morgan.
International Women’s Day was originally called International Working Women’s Day and dates back to the turn of the century New York when the earliest demonstration was called specifically to celebrate the role women had taken in the fight against sex discrimination and for workers’ rights. It is today used as an opportunity to remember the women who have fought for freedom and equality, often at great personal sacrifice and against hostile and often violent regimes. We also use the day to appreciate the struggle that continues today globally against domestic violence as well as campaigns for equal pay and equal human rights and to spotlight regimes and countries in which women are still treated like second class citizens.
