This House believes that models are beneficial for the society


Background and Context of Debate:

There have many debates whether slim models set a good example for teenagers. Now it is time to ask - do models benefit our society anyhow? Is this job becoming outdated?

Economy: Are models beneficial economically?


  • The view of an attractive, young, well dressed men/women can improve productivity - Well, beauty, in all its various forms, is clearly one of the strongest (if not the strongest) driving force for creativity and endless source of inspiration, for men in the first place. Therefore, models clearly are beneficial, since they can inspire people (especially the lonely ones), in turn improving their emotional state and productivity at the same time.
  • Models are economically active. Models not only earn a lot of money (and thus do not rely on social benefits), but they also pay a lot in taxes, and, what is even more important, they give money to charity as most of the modelling agencies support third world countries.


  • Indulging in viewing "perfect" men/women may shatter one's ability to live in a real world - The artificial, photoshopped, plastic beauty of models is seldom found in real world. Indulging in it may distract person from the real world, precluding him or her to enjoy the true, natural beauty of real people in a real world. This can cause serious damage to psychical state and consequently day-to-day productivity of (mostly male) individuals, with ensuing detrimental effects on the economy.

Does modeling help in personality development?

  • Modeling focuses almost solely on the visual appearence - Modeling put too much emphasis on person's visual appearence, setting back other parts of one's personality. Many models are therefore just dolls - albeit beautiful ones - naive, with no ideas nor ideals.
