To excuse Kardashian's actions by noting Chyna's past as a stripper or even the publishing of her own sexually suggestive photography is to be a willful idiot.

Rob Kardashian is a petulant child with a penchant for behaving like an immature, bratty little punk whenever he feels scorned by whatever woman he's had a relationship with. Unsurprisingly, his favorite line of attack is publicly accusing an ex of being a cheater.

He's done this with past girlfriends like The Real co-host Adrienne Bailon and singer-television personality Rita Ora. His recent Instagram tirade against Blac Chyna is just more of him taking cues from the same pathetic playbook — only he's upped the ante by posting nudes of his former fiance and the mother of his child.

While lawyers — including an attorney representing Blac Chyna — debate whatever or not the spare Kardashian has violated California's revenge porn law, there is no denying his intent: to embarrass her and to make her feel less than by branding her a whore. In his small, misogynistic mind, each of the women he's lashed out at for all to see deserved it because they hurt him. The only thing sadder than the fragility of Rob Kardashian's ego is that there are enough people out there willing to further cater to it by sharing his contemptuous attitude towards women.

Although it is plausible to believe Blac Chyna's aim with Rob Kardashian was rooted in revenge, why does everyone keep pretending Kardashian is as naive as he portrays himself to be? He wasn't completely forthright about his past with Bailon (he cheated on her in 2010) and Ora claims she never considered herself to be in a relationship with Kardashian as he claimed she cheated on him with "20 dudes." Kardashian is also the same person who has used Instagram to attack his sister — which suggests even if Chyna wanted to do to the Kardashians what they have done to others, he had his own axe to grind with his family so it's hard to believe he is totally innocent in their train wreck of a tryst.

Regardless of whether or not he was in on the purported hustle, though, his reaction to a perceived slight suggests he's nothing more than a manipulative, sexist, exploitative jackass. One can grasp how betrayal can spark outrage, but to handle it in this manner with the mother of his child was an act of impulse, recklessness, and cruelty. Gifting someone jewelry and cars does not guarantee ownership of that person much less their fidelity.

If you think that, you've listened to too many trash rap records and whiny R&B tracks over the years from jilted, clownish men. And it doesn't matter if Chyna sells her vagina to the highest bidder or has a 120-day rule in which only one of Jesus' disciples could break with direct permission from God.

Whatever Chyna does with her body is her choice and her right so long as it is consensual. What Rob Kardashian did was everything but. Even if he felt like a trick, he didn't have to go out his way to act like such a bottom-feeding sucker.

As for his mental state, I'm not going to sit at my desk and pretend I am Frasier Crane. That said, based on what we saw on Rob & Chyna and his online habits, his mental state very much indeed seems cloudy. Even so, depression is not an excuse for a longstanding pattern of antagonizing women for the public's consumption. There is something to be said about men who abuse women in any fashion: they're not men at all.

To excuse Kardashian's actions by noting Chyna's past as a stripper or even the publishing of her own sexually suggestive photography is to be a willful idiot. A woman has a right to autonomy. Yes, even strippers, video girls, IG models, et. al. Rob Kardashian violated her autonomy by posting nude photos without her consent to hurt her. If you don't see the problem with that, you are as dim and diabolical as Kardashian, that walking sad ass Carl Thomas song on loop.
