Kylie Jenner Says She's Gained Weight But Where?

Kylie Jenner claims to have gained weight, but, if you can tell where, you are a more observant person than I.

In the caption for the above Instagram, Jenner initially wrote, "behind the scenes. (Yes I have gained weight there I said it so [you] don't have to.)" An obvious attempt to block online trolls at the pass, Jenner later revised the caption to say simply, "behind the scenes." Of course the comments section of the shot has become one big debate about the strengths and weaknesses of a 17-year-old girl's body.

Kylie's not the only celebrity who's been forced to "accept" her "curves" recently in light of seemingly imaginary weight gain.

Selena Gomez has been applauded for her response to speculation about her recent weight gain, calling one Instagram commenter "disgusting" after she suggested Gomez stop eating junk food and start working out. Gomez has since made several statements on the importance of self-love. It's a great sentiment but no one has stopped to ask why anyone would think that Selena Gomez has gained weight in the first place. She looks pretty trim to me.

It's no revelation that our culture as a whole places an unfair expectation on women to be physically perfect, and it's even less shocking to say that expectation falls more heavily on young women working in the entertainment industry.

But. again, if you can tell where these two women have packed on these supposed pounds, you're far more observant than I am.
