Kim Kardashian got naked and shared a photo of her body on Twitter this week, which, let's be honest, isn't exactly anything new. The responses weren't exactly anything new either, with a handful of celebrities and a shedload of haters all calling her out for it. Sigh.

But something that IS new this time around is the way that Kim K has responded to all of it, not only serving up some serious shade to her celeb critics, but later sharing an inspiring mini essay on her website to address the subject of slut shaming.

And it was pretty good timing too, seeing as it was International Women's Day.

Kim began her POV by arguing: "In all seriousness, I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives.

"I don't do drugs, I hardly drink, I've never committed a crime — and yet I'm a bad role model for being proud of my body?

She also gave a shout-out to everyone who chucks her old sex tape in her face every day of her life: "It always seems to come back around to my sex tape. Yes, a sex tape that was made 13 years ago. 13 YEARS AGO. Literally that lonnng ago. And people still want to talk about it?!?!

"I lived through the embarrassment and fear, and decided to say who cares, do better, move on. I shouldn't have to constantly be on the defence, listing off my accomplishments just to prove that I am more than something that happened 13 years ago."

Kim went on to explain that, while most people tell her to cover up and stop getting her bod out for all the world to see, she finds empowerment in being confident with her figure and sexuality.

"I am empowered by my body," she explained. "I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin.

"It's 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming — it's like, enough is enough," Kim wrote. "I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me.

"I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy."
