No because they're not in a competition
#25 to #15 - itsupsidedown (01/13/2013) [-]
They are in a competition with other models...Hottest one gets the job and the money sounds like a competition to me.

nono, you dont send photoshopped pictures of yourself to an agency.

You come in, they look at you, they hire you.
THEN photoshop might come into play.

I highly doubt that photoshop would make you get more jobs as a model.
User avatar #29 to #25 - hoodedmetal (01/13/2013) [-]
Photoshop is still used because even if they look good, they don't look good enough for a magazine cover (stray hairs, lighting effects, slight shape change, etc). Plus they don't really compete in that sense but even then the Hottest might not even get the job because they might not be going for hot but other things that would meet their requirements.

Its been said several times already, but I'll add my own two cents.

It's not the same because photoshop doesn't void or nullify any central purpose.

If the central purpose of a sports competition is to select for the most naturally capable human being, then using steroids nullifies or cheats that purpose.

However, there is no central purpose to modelling anywhere which demands that they be natural. We're just looking for aesthetics in models. Not ability, not recognition of natural talent, just aesthetics. Modelling isn't about the model. We don't look at photos of models and go: "Oooh Tyrese Mo' Jackson! She's my favorite model! She's so much better than Tiffany O' Whiteson!" Why? Because, as I said earlier, we only care about the aesthetics. There is no competition going on that the populace as a whole cares about.

If we didn't bother learning athlete names, and we just watched them run / play sports for the aesthetic beauty of the sport, then steroid use wouldn't matter.

That's a good point, but I think the reason steroids are illegal is that they have bad side effects to the users, so, if they were legal, even the ones that were against it or that would rather no use it would be forced to, otherwise they wouldn't be able to keep up with the users.
#101 to #65 - larknok (01/15/2013) [-]
Contrary to popular belief we don't ban things for being harmful. Hell, there are dozens of things that are legal that you really shouldn't do. I'm sure smoking cigarettes is perfectly legal, and shoving thirty whoppers into your mouth is A-okay. Eating glue? Why the hell not! Steroid use isn't illegal mind you, its just not allowed by competitions.
User avatar #102 to #101 - ponieskilledmyacc (01/15/2013) [-]
I know, it's not to protect the users, but if it was allowed, it would raise the bar and the ones that care about their health wouldn't be on par with the users. So if it was legal it would be pratically mandatory.
#42 to #38 - HOtaconE (01/14/2013) [-]
The problem is, many young girls take what they see seriously and starve trying to reach those unreal proportions. Thankfully, the international modelling society is going to pass a law prohibiting photoshop, or, if you use it, you have to say so on the picture.
#100 to #42 - larknok (01/15/2013) [-]
At some level people are responsible for their own insecurities - all influences aside. You can't go around blaming models for teenage girl insecurities. The girls are just gonna hafta get over their insecurities like responsible individuals.

It would be kind of interesting to see what sports would be like if all pro athletes were required to take steroids

&gt;Implying modelling is a competition   
&gt;Implying companies making ads for their product is a competition that one company could get an unfair advantage over one another through photoshop   
&gt;Implying their is ANYBODY that isn't using photoshop   
   
Any modelling that is a competition is done in person.   
   
Besides the point is to make a good looking photo, the point of sports is to compete under a set of rules to see who is the most talented/athletic. It would be like saying using sugar in food is illegal... the end goal is to have good tasting food, so you use sugar because the only goal is to eat. A sport's goal is not just to have the fastest time running, the goal is to compete; if it were the former we would having races with people wearing jetpacks.   
No matter how much I go on I can't seem to express the complete stupid of this post.  It would be like saying a defibrillator in a hospital is cheating...

Steroids are a health issue. Photoshop isn't. Modeling isn't a competition either, you don't really win at it.

**pedodelphia rolled a random image posted in comment #3 at 9fag ** so you saying in a model competition you can use photoshop? tell me how you "enchance" a model in real life with photoshop on e LIVE contest? (makeup,we know)

Actually Israel have put some regulations on it to counter self image problems with young people.

It's because athletes are people being played to be the best at what they do and models are being paid to sell a product, so in the end the real definition of the model is how much they sell and the definition of a great player is that they are better than everyone else in their league.
#34 - anon (01/14/2013) [-]
In Israel they have a new law where models cannot be below a certain size and magazines etc. have to disclose if they have Photoshopped the photo to make them appear thinner.
#30 - anon (01/14/2013) [-]
because models aren't part of a competition

Both are used to attain the normally unattainable. Both allow untalented pricks to rise to prominence. Both give us false faith in humanity's ability to actually achieve things.

Both are Fakes.

Technically, there are a ******* of many different types of steroids, and almost all of them are completely legal. The steroids that are banned from sports are not illegal because they are drugs.

Most people don't know that though, because the media makes it look like there's only one type of steroid.
User avatar #7 to #5 - thadin (01/13/2013) [-]
Just to put a few examples, Epi Pen's (I think) and Asthma inhalers use steroids.
User avatar #89 - samnoname (01/14/2013) [-]
Think about it, if steroids were legal for athletes the world would have thousands of superhuman athletic freaks, these people would run around and battle each-other on tv for our amusement. how very archaic

steroid use is toxic to the human body

photoshop isn't

User avatar #40 to #39 - Marker ONLINE (01/14/2013) [-]
But they are both cheap ways at achieving success in your field. One is a drug, yes, but the argument makes sense.
User avatar #43 to #40 - BobbyMcFerrin (01/14/2013) [-]
No it doesn't

Using batting gloves isn't illegal.

Using steroids is illegal because it puts pressure on athletes to use body-destroying drugs in order to keep up with their peers.
User avatar #45 to #43 - Marker ONLINE (01/14/2013) [-]
Using steroids is illegal because they need a prescription. Athletes break the law simply by owning them.
User avatar #54 to #45 - BobbyMcFerrin (01/14/2013) [-]
And why do you think they need a prescription genius?

They can do harm if not used properly

steroids are illegal in sports because they are illegal to anyone because they could ******* kill you

so could guns,should they be illegal?
User avatar #16 to #12 - visualmind (01/13/2013) [-]
you almost make it sound like a question

of course should guns, grenades, flamethrowers and nukes be illegal,

1) Switch your brain on.
2) Compare the deaths due to obesity, tobacco, alcohol, individual traffic and steroids.
3) Realize laws aren't there to save and improve individual lives, but to make society run smoothly.
4) ???
5)Profit.

3) Now compare the amount of folks that eat food/drive cars to number of people who take roids.
3b) Now realize no one dies from steroids because no one takes them, because they are illegal

Correlation does not imply causation.   
Human sacrifices, for example, are illegal too, but that is not the primary reason they are practically non-existent; whereas drug use, illegal as well, is wide-spread and prolific.   
The logical conclusion would be that laws are not the deciding factor in whether an event occurs or not.   
   
In other words, laws can be broken. Duh.

Correlation does not imply causation. Right.
But when talking about steroids the ban is the main factor they aren't used by many.
User avatar #23 to #21 - techketzer (01/13/2013) [-]
I doubt that.
Would you happen to have proof for your opinion?
User avatar #26 to #23 - visualmind (01/13/2013) [-]
i would probably take roids if they were legal and sold in stores.

right now they are expensive as **** and hard to find.
User avatar #27 to #26 - techketzer (01/13/2013) [-]
That's not proof, my friend.
User avatar #28 to #27 - visualmind (01/13/2013) [-]
many of my friends would too

any young beta faggot would, i guess

User avatar #31 to #28 - techketzer (01/14/2013) [-]
That is not empiric proof, only assumption.

I, for one, would not. Not ever.
However, I think it should be everyone's individual and free decision; I think it outside of any government's responsibility.
User avatar #32 to #31 - visualmind (01/14/2013) [-]
then we agree, i guess

What? Modleing isn't a competition, you're just a body, supposed to look a certain way, to promote a certain product. You can bet when athletes are promoting a product and go to a photoshoot... Yep, photoshop is used.
#6 - anon (01/13/2013) [-]
No, because models aren't competing for anything. If they're in a competition then there's no photoshop involved, but there is makeup, so the proper comparison is that makeup shouldn't be allowed in model contests, in which usually there is none because they're mainly comparing the bodies.
