Butts. They're great. We all have them -- to one degree or another. And, again to varying degrees, we all love them.

But, while the Kardashians are a notoriously bootylicious family, we need to remember that we're not them. We can't be them, and that means Kim's butt, Kylie's lips, and Kendall's, well, everything. And, you know, we shouldn't want to be them -- we should want to be us.

Some very prominent plastic surgeons are reminding us that, regardless of what anyone's anaconda might desire, we're probably better off accepting the butts that we have.

"It's the Kardashian Effect. The big butts are very 'in.' I see a lot of young girls want to do the Kylie Jenner thing; for a while she was getting lip injections. They wanted lips just like hers."

That's sad -- in a self-esteem sort of way -- but not unexpected. Celebrities like the Kardashians are trendsetters, and that extends to more than hair-extensions and color schemes. One of the problems with it, though, is a real health issue.

"The butt thing is really concerning, because they want to go big. They’re pushing the envelope of what the buttocks will take. When you put a ton of fat in the buttocks, some of it’s going to dissolve. Some of it’s going to die. You can get into fat necrosis and scarring. The buttocks is really, really hard to fix."

Basically? Butt enhancements are a huge amount of work that can easily go wrong. You have to gain weight, have that fat removed and transferred into your butt, and then stay off of your butt for a week. A week. We have a lot of questions about how someone would manage that but we're not sure that we want the answers.

If you can afford to get some safe, minor procedures done for the right reasons, then it's your body and you can go for it. But don't get surgery to look more like someone else. And please, please don't get a procedure from anyone but a highly reputable surgeon.

Okay we're going to have nightmares about necrotic fat tissue in butts. But better nightmares than the real thing, right?

Even when she clearly does not want to be photographed -- and even a celebrity and model has to get tired of cameras every now and then -- Kendall Jenner still looks gorgeous. Her outfit is also giving us a bit more information than usual about one of the hottest bodies on the planet, and this time, it's not her nipples.

This is the sort of thing that happens to a lot of people. Like, just about everyone. Tight clothing and genitals either don't mix or mix very well, depending upon your perspective. Kendall's pants look like they're actually being a little invasive here, but being photographed adjusting her pants would be much, much worse than the all-but-inevitable camel toe shot.

Probably embarrassing, though this girl has literally nothing to be embarrassed about. Especially not for, you know, having normal human anatomy.

If there's one thing that can unite the most bitter enemies despite the most polarized ideological views, it's a simple truth of the internet: going into the comments section of just about anything is like entering a minefield. Anonymity is, for many, an excuse to spew vitriol at anyone and everyone. Honestly, if people would bring up "YouTube comments" at diplomatic meetings, that icebreaker could lead to world peace.

Celebrities are certainly not unaware of the hate flung in their direction. Gigi Hadid, a stunning model known for her close bond with both Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift, posted a well-phrased defense of her body and her profession as a model: 

Body positivity is so important, and every message like this helps. She received a lot of celebrity support on Instagram and Twitter, from everyone from Tyra Banks to Ashley Graham to Kris Jenner.

But, honestly? We don't think that her modeling career needs defending. Her body speaks for itself:

Sometimes, instead of being confrontational, we civilized people "joke" with our loved ones about things that we don't like. Sometimes you need to express yourself but a direct statement won't do anything but cause a fight. A joke, on the other hand, can get a laugh from the ones you love and still leave an impression.

Kendall Jenner clearly knows this, because just look at the snap that she sent to Kylie.

Same, girl.

Kylie clearly took it in good spirit, since she shared it on Instagram. We don't think that Kendall's veiled relationship advice has sunk in just yet, but every little hint and nudge counts.

When the Kardashian sisters spam Instagram, it's always a blessed curse in some form or another. Sometimes it's a photoshoot and sometimes it's just untold weirdness that won't stop. Even the worst Kardashian nonsense is at least nominally entertaining, right?

But sometimes it's just a series of normal pictures. Normal if you look like Kris Jenner's daughters and have their budget for wardrobes and parties, anyway.

Kim and Kendall are definitely the smiliest of the group. Kourtney and Khloe don't exactly seem unhappy to be theredifferent people have different "picture faces." Anyone who's ever made the mistake of smiling for a DMV photo knows that sometimes a smolder can do a lot more than a flash of sparkling white teeth.

Though, admittedly, it's more Khloe pulling off smoulder while Kourtney seems a little bewildered. Not really her best look.

Honestly, our big takeaway from these pictures is that, if we were Kendall, we would be this smiley in every picture, too. Seriously, have you seen her? Kendall's wearing a t-shirt but you hardly notice because she's always a knockout.

Absent in these pictures? Kylie. But each of the Sisters K were sure to highlight their youngest sibling's absence in every caption, so we're sure that Kylie and her ridiculous lips were there in spirit.

Honestly, Kendall looks so relaxed and comfortable here that you'd forget that she's modeling. ... If she weren't, you know, so drop-dead gorgeous that she always looks like she's modeling.

While to those of us outside of the fashion world might find it odd that the Le Lis Blanc summer collection would begin its campaign at the beginning of autumn, we are not complaining because look at this. The very organic patterns of vibrant reds on this very comfortable-looking outfit super do it for us.

And Kendall looks like, well, Kendall. Fashionable in every season.

Love this, girl.

Kendall Jenner, guys ... she's so important. Entirely too often she seems to be the voice of reason in her wackadoodle family, perhaps the only one in the whole dang Kardashian/Jenner clan to never have been the focus of "wait, where did that ass come from?" comments. She's a treasure, and we must treat her as such, and that means showing the appropriate amount of appreciation for the fact that Kendall did a video with Rock the Vote. Which, by the way, is a lot. It's a lot of appreciation.

Keep it up, Kendall. We need you so desperately.
