Say what?

While strolling the mall today, I saw this large poster and was struck absolutely speechless.

My inner feminist doesn't know whether to be:

1.) impressed by this enterprising group of women for being able to garner the attention of the American public and take it all the way to the bank. (Let's face it: the women of this show are the reason people are tuning in. The men are definitely the supporting players to these scene stealing ladies.)

2.) disgusted with the way they are going about it. It seems a little shameful to me for the way Kris Kardashian is pimping her daughters out (she is their business manager, too) in micro mini skirts/dresses. Are those dresses or lingerie? And yes, a few of her daughters are adults and not so fragile that they can't speak up for themselves, but the two youngest on the left side are only 14 and 16 years old.

I don't want to be judgmental, and I certainly don't want to be a woman who is critical of another woman's success. On the contrary, the fact that this cast of women are so wildly successful and raking in the big bucks is admirable. I just wish they weren't doing it in a way that is actually so degrading to women.
