Kylie Jenner's Bikini Picture Is a Sad Attempt to Keep Up With the Kardashians

Kylie JennerNot that I have any delusions that any of the Kardashian clan are role models or anything like that, but this picture Kylie Jenner posted on Twitter last night is just too much. Sure she looks fantastic in her bikini, but she's 15, people. Fifteen!

While we're used to seeing way too much of all of her and famous half sisters, this is just inappropriate anyway I try to look at it. It would be one thing if she was frolicking on the beach or doing something goofy while wearing a bikini, but this is so obviously sexually intended, it makes me sad ... and terrified as a mother of a little girl.

I mean, is Kris Jenner okay with this? Stupid question, I guess given what the rest of what her kids have done (and she's helped them do), but I wouldn't be. Not at 15, and it pains me to think of all the copycat shots she's going to inspire from little girls too young to think about the consequences of exploiting themselves like this at such a young age.

At 18, it's one thing, but this girl is still a minor, and Twitter certainly doesn't limit who sees this. I cringe at the thought of all the creeps out there who just wait for pictures of young girls like this.

Given her family's M.O., this shouldn't be shocking I guess, but that makes it even sadder in some respects. It's like Kylie doesn't feel like she has a choice but to use her body to get attention and publicity and to ... keep up with the Kardashians. So as stunning as this shot is, it's really quite sad.

What do you think of Kylie Jenner's bikini tweet?

If her mother doesn't care about a 15 yr old having breast implantsbim sure she doesn't care about her bikini pic. She isn't trying to get attention of young girls obviously.

I think she looks great, however at 15 it is a bit much..but knowing how this family operates the mom will pimp her out for a quick dollar anyways....so it was bound to happen.

People are so hateful. It's summer time in California what teenage girl isn't taking a picture in her bathing suit!? This is nothing more than that. I could understand if she was naked why someone would feel the need to imply the things you are, but she's in a bathing suit! Calm down.

Kylie looks great, but she is just 15. Why is she trying to grow up so fast? Boyfriends and exploiting her body at this age is just too much.. She must feel insecure with herself and fears she is the "Rob" between her and Kendall. Obviously Kendall seems to have the brains, beauty, and self respect her younger lacks..

I hate it too, but I have a teenage son. Every single teen girl he knows on facebook has bikini picts on there. And they all look this good. She is no different from all of them. Even my niece has them up. If it was my daughter, I wouldn't allow it, but clearly, I'm the minority.

I grew up watching Saved by the Bell, where they wore bikinis (that was back with the high cut style was in fashion).  Models are scouted in the teens, and are often considered too old to begin their career by their early twenties. Most teen actors show this much cleavage on a regular basis.  Teenagers on soap operas are depicted having sex on a regular basis (and they're usually actual teenagers, not twenty somethings depicting teenagers). This is nothing new.  The only reason you have a problem with it is because she's a "Kardashian."  It's really not a big deal.  If she were posing in a sexual manner, I could see what you're upset about, but really, it's a cool shot.  She looks really pretty. No need to make it into something it isn't.

I would never have been allowed to take bikini pics at 15! Let alone share them with the whole world. It is disgusting & I wouldn't allow my daughter to do so either. Can't believe some ppl think its OK or say "every one else is doing it". Do you really want your kids doing what everyone else in their school is doing? What a poor example to set.

@trina how do you know she has breast implants? I've seen girls her age and younger with boobs her size or bigger... And 15 year old girls wear bikinis like this and worse all the time and post the photos on facebook, it has nothing to do with being a Kardashian or being related to one... People just look for any excuse or reason to hate on this family... Its so annoying! If you don't like them don't watch their show or read articles written about them. Problem Solved!!

hexxuss hexxuss

I can't get past the part where she's 15.... I just can't.
