Kim Kardashian bikini bump: You call this fat?

Mom-to-be Kim Kardashian dared to bare her bump during a recent vacation to the Greek island of Mykonos, showing off her pregnancy curves as she hit the beach in a tiny string bikini.

US Weekly‘s current cover features a swimsuit shot of the beautiful reality star, who is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Kanye West in July. “You Call This Fat?” the headline asks, a reference to the near constant criticism that Kim has faced since she first started showing early this year.

“Kim Kardashian: Baby Fat Or Fat, Baby!?”
“Kim Kardashian: Dumped for Being Fat!”
“Pregnant Kim Kardashian: Fat in Muumuu Photos”

That’s just a sample of the harsh headlines from recent weeks.

The often cruel media attention has prompted some famous faces to come to Kim’s defense – including none other than Gloria Steinem, who said, “Our bodies are never public property under any circumstance. 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…. If our bodies are treated as ornaments instead of instruments, that’s because we are rebelling because it’s an effort to distract us.”

Arrested for harassment? I was never a big fan of people stroking my baby bump, but I wasn’t about to press charges over it. I do agree, though, that all the negative attention to the size of a woman’s pregnant belly is unnecessary and harmful. Pregnancy is about so much more than the number on a scale.

Now into her third trimester, Kim seems to finally be embracing her pregnancy: “She’s loving the seventh month,” a source tells US. “And she thinks pregnancy is so cute.”

What do you think?
