>Implying modelling is a competition   
>Implying companies making ads for their product is a competition that one company could get an unfair advantage over one another through photoshop   
>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...

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.

I have no idea. I don't see why they would be. All they do is make you really buff. If you're not using them to cheat in a competition then whatever.

I'd personally use them. My dick is already small, might as well get really buff so if anyone laughs at me I can at least knock them the **** out.

but modeling, although competitive, is not based around dignity or performance. Countries compete against each other in sports, and both sides respect a certain standard. Within countries, teams compete and respect a certain standard. It's what we expect out of them.

I'm fine with photoshopped models. Doesn't matter much to me. It's central to business, not nationality or pride.

It would be kind of interesting to see what sports would be like if all pro athletes were required to take steroids
User avatar #24 - dabombmanater (01/13/2013) [-]
Steroids are a health issue. Photoshop isn't. Modeling isn't a competition either, you don't really win at it.
#30 - anonymous (01/14/2013) [-]
because models aren't part of a competition

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.

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.

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

the reason steriods are illegal is because people bet money on sports, and using steriods will count as cheating.
