• Kim Kardashian Shakes Up Feminist Pieties: Marriage Requires Compromise, Honor Your Husband

    Surge Summary: Celebrity married couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian recently locked horns over her sometimes immodest outfit choices. Eventually, Kim admitted she is trying to “honor” the changes that are going on in her husband’s life because “compromise” is a vital ingredient of any marital realtionship. So, what does all this mean for their union and family?

    A few weeks back, on a segment which aired on the reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim Kardashian and her husband, Kanye West, had a bit of a squabble over her attire —  he believed  it was too “revealing.”

    Wayne DuPress writes over at Lifezette:

    West has become a devout Christian and is now more concerned about how his wife’s appearance could have a negative impact on their children.

    In the somewhat strained back-and-forth, Mrs. Kanye West challenged his concerns, clearly not on board with his new convictions.

    The disagreement ended The disagreement ended with the 42-year-old rapper cutting off the convo and stalking out of the room.

    But hold on – it seems Kim’s lately experiencing a bit of a heartchange:

    She announced Tuesday of last week she’ll still stay true to who she is — but she does support her husband’s newfound faith and wants to “honor” him.

    Kardashian made the comments on “The Real” with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe, when co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley asked Kim about a discussion regarding the revealing dress she wore to the Met Gala in May.

    “I do think that, you know, he is my husband, so I obviously want to honor him and what he’s feeling. And he’s been going through this life change, and it’s mostly about the kids,” she said.

    She elaborated that as their four children get older, Kanye is additionally chary about what the family has in their home.

     “We got rid of TVs in the kids’ rooms and removed makeup from North’s room. And he’s [Kanye’s] been very, had this, you know, epiphany of being this — not that he wasn’t an amazing dad — but being a little bit more strict as a dad and being very forceful on the imagery that’s in our household and what they see,” Kim said.

    If an accurate summation of his current persuasions, good for him! In the old days – you know, maybe in the 70s or 80s? – it would have been called “raising one’s children” and “leading one’s household”. Y’know, being a husband and father. Radical stuff.

    Then this:

    “I actually agree with it,” she added.

    “But I’m always gonna be me, and so, we had that discussion and that fight.”

    It’s a bit murky what that will be meaning on a practical level for the model and TV personality. Will the second-of-the Kardashian-sisters continue to be appearing on TV and social media – ummm – less-than-fully-clad? Will her lifestyle continue to undergo the same manner of adjustment as her now “born-again” husband’s?

    Next, in what might actually be the most shocking assertion of her latest remarks, she noted that compromise is at the very heart of marriage.

    “I think, at the end of the day, that’s what marriage is. He’s gonna do things that I don’t agree with, and I support him, and vice versa,” she said.

    Again, kinda shocking. Kim Kardashian is volunteering a piece of wisdom pressingly needed in Western Civilization’s divorce-crazy, I-gotta-be-me culture. I mean, nowadays, for many a “liberated”, twenty-first-century feminist, Kim’s decision to put aside her preferences for the sake of a male – even worse, for her husband! — could be more objectionable than her heretofore routine tendency to bare it all – or a good part of it all – for other ogling men.  Dudes, recall – especially traditional hubbies or dads – aren’t exactly in good odor with the secular left and man-hating feminism in this era.

    Again, as Kanye and Kim appear to be moving toward a more biblically-oriented worldview, let’s all continue to pray for them, for their marriage, for their family.
