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.

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.

&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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

They are incredibly unhealthy for your body.

Zyzz is a great example of why you shouldn't take steroids.

They don't make you buff, they produce hormones which stimulate you to get buff. It's not like it's a free pass for schwarzeneggerness.

Actually your dick will be fine.
Your balls however will be smaller than a grape, that and you'll develop a higher pitched voice. See you're not producing anymore testosterone (the thing that makes you manly) since you're ingesting a similar substance instead, thus your testosterone produces (balls) shrink from misuse.
Also it's not always gonna be "real" muscle, see pic.

And then people take testosterone to level out, which makes their bodies produce more estrogen to match up, which ends up with your body developing female characteristics like man tits.

This leads to people getting their man tits surgically removed and they end up with a ****** up body with a lot of muscle.

Dont take steroids.

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.

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