You can call her a lot of things, but don't call her a feminist!

Kim Kardashian West has penned an essay for her website explaining why she doesn't see herself as a feminist, and believes such labels obstruct the fight for equality.

"For me, feminist is someone who advocates for the civil and social rights and liberties of all people, regardless of their gender; anyone who believes that women should have the same choices and opportunities as men when it comes to education and employment, their bodies and their lifestyles," the 35-year-old reality star writes.

"Of course I want these things!" she continues. "I'm all about empowering and uplifting women. Obviously, there are things about me that people might say make me a feminist: I work hard, I make my own money, I'm comfortable and confident in my own skin, and I encourage women to be open and honest about their sexuality, and to embrace their beauty and their bodies."

However, while all of the above may see her fit for feminism, Kanye West's significant other questions why "we have to put labels on things," adding that she's simply a human being who doesn't need to be defined by her beliefs.

The mom of two adds that she thinks labels like "feminist," "Democrat," "plus-size," and "bisexual," create a separation, which divides society and hinders the progression of equality.

"I'll always fight for women's rights. Always. I support women to the fullest," she concludes. "But, at the end of the day, no one should feel pressured to be labeled as anything just because they believe in certain things and support certain values or ideals."
