Resolution 8: Models are setting the wrong standards of beauty

PROPOSITION (FOR)

OPPOSITION (AGAINST)

  1. Introduction

Today’s beauty standard is having a slim face-defined jawline, thin nose, big lips, flawless skin, no signs of acne, no signs of aging, no stretch marks, no cellulite, and no scars. Asians desire white skin meanwhile Westerners want dark tan skin. Model Cameron Russell shared in her Ted Talks presentation that in the model industry, being a white woman was called a sexy girl, and in 2007, a very inspired NYU Ph.D. student counted all the models on the runway, every single one that was hired. Of the 667 models that were hired, only 27, or less than 4%, are non-white. Nowadays, we still can see many young people running after these “beauty standards” by doing surgeries, faking their skins, or having unhealthy diets, which can lead to many risky consequences being able to take away their health and more is their life. So, whether or not, models are setting the wrong standards of beauty? Today we will debate about this, and I believe that models are actually causing unrealistic beauty standards. Hereafter our team will bring forward 3 main reasons why we support this resolution.

  1. Present the 1st argument

The first reason to keep the resolution is that models are increasingly pushing us away from ourselves. This is because it does not meet my notion of "sustainable beauty." Let's take the body model as an example. A real model today is someone who has a slender physique and white skin, and people tend to follow this standard since they don't want to appear "out of place." What happens, on the other side, if one person is unfortunate enough to have a large or overweight shape, and they are undoubtedly subjected to body shaming? For example, one girl went to a beautiful beach and hoped to enjoy herself completely because she had spent a long time preparing a wonderful bikini and eagerly taking a gorgeous photo post on IG to capture her best feeling, but it turns out to be a different story because there are so many comments below "Oh I think it would be better if you lost some weight to look better in that swimsuit," Wrong mindset about beauty that has long been established in people perc It's simple to realize that when a swimsuit agency advertises their items, they won't invite chubby or big models to do so, but the models must adhere to specified measurements. Speaking of which, when a man receives offensive statements, it puts them under a lot of stress, and as a result, they tend to be more reserved whenever they go outdoors, fearful of being gazed at and judged, which is also an indication that their mental health is being assaulted. Following that, people will look for solutions to improve their appearance, and the first product that comes to mind in this case is weight loss pills. As a result of catching that customer psychology, numerous agencies and famous artists are using PR programs on social media without any controls, and this situation can be seen clearly on the Internet in Vietnam. So, what are the adverse effects of these miracle weight loss pills? Heart attack, digestive problems and addictive situations. The US FDA first reported in 2008 that 28 brands of weight loss medicines include toxins that are detrimental to the body, however, this number has since been updated and is now available. The FDA verified that the number of medications on the "black" list is not the final number. So, the best beauty about yourself is "simply be true to who you are," and no one but you have the authority to set beauty standards for you. If you want to improve your life's health, make the change that I call "sustainable beauty above."







  1. Introduction

Greek mythology says "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Surely all of us have heard this saying before. So, what is the standard of beauty? Some opinions say that you must have white skin, a face without acne or dark scars, a high nose, full lips, and a hot body like stars, models, beauty queens, or in the media. that we often see. Today, we're going to debate whether these models are setting the wrong standards of beauty. I believe that today's models are the image pursued in perfecting the beauty of the vast majority of us women.

  1. Refute the opponent’s 1st argument

Your team says that nowadays, people tend to conform to model standards because they don't want to look "out of place" or be the subject of body shaming. I disagree because not everyone follows the trend of the pattern. Besides, they only see models with perfect bodies to motivate them. The model's physique is almost perfect, they have a very scientific diet and exercise regimen. This has a great influence on those who want to change their appearance, but it does not mean that they use methods that are harmful to their health. They can choose the gym, healthy food, yoga, and many other safe methods without resorting to toxic weight-loss drugs. Moreover, their intellectual level is very high so they know what to do and what not to do, and of course, they know how to consider and find the best method for themselves. Therefore, more and more people will have beautiful and healthy bodies thanks to scientific methods of exercise and eating.

  1. Present the first argument

Our first argument against this resolution is that models follow standards like height, waist circumference, nice body, and smooth skin and so on which makes them more confident when they appear in public. This is true because models represent famous brands, so they have to follow strict beauty standards to fit these brands. For example, model Kendall Jenner made the world's social network "suffocating" with a series of bikini photos showing off her incredibly perfect body. The supermodel received a "rain" of compliments from the online community thanks to her beautiful body lines down to every centimeter, her body 0% fat, and no flaws found. As a result, Kendall Jenner is sought after by Chanel, Balmain, Tommy Hilfiger, and many other big brands. In addition, she became the official representative of Estée Lauder and was on the cover of both the world-famous magazine Interview and LOVE. This is important because the model must be the best version of herself when appearing in public to attract customers for her brand.

  1. Refute the opponent’s 1st argument

Your team said that models follow standards like height, waist circumference, nice body, and smooth skin and so on which makes them more confident when they appear in public. That may be true, but I think it is not necessary to meet the standards to be confident in front of a crowd. Because confidence is a person's ability, they may have flaws, but those flaws make them special. For example, model Moffy is different from all models in the world by her crossed eyes, which always look in both directions. Despite possessing a unique beauty standard, Moffy is still favored by many fashion brands. Therefore, it is not necessary to meet the criteria to become confident

  1. Present the 2nd argument

The next argument to support this resolution is that models create unrealistic beauty standards which are causing identity issues for young men and women via social media. This is true because thousands of Instagram accounts nowadays promote images of perfectly sculpted men and women, and this is why men and women have found themselves battling identity issues due to the unrealistic beauty standards set by what they see on social media. Many have developed serious mental health issues, identity issues and even body dysmorphia trying to emulate the beauty standards that are simply unattainable. Moreover, for instance, an Instagram model can post a picture of herself in a bikini, showing off her flat stomach, holding up a weight loss tea supplement with the caption revealing that it is the secret to her perfect body. When in reality, a perfect body does not exist. Her job is just to look perfect and promote merchandise. An immense amount of planning, makeup and photo editing went into the final Instagram picture she posted. It's designed to sell a product, not support a healthy lifestyle. This creates an unrealistic beauty standard for all of her followers who believe that this product is their ticket to a perfect body as well as sends a very dangerous message to them, especially young women as this can lead to low self-esteem and negative thinking towards food. According to eating disorders statistics estimated by the National Eating Disorder Association, in the USA up to 30 million people suffer from an eating disorder such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or binge eating disorder. Worldwide the figure is more like 70 million sufferers. Therefore, we can see that this argument is really important because if we don’t have careful consideration and selection about the beauty standards and healthy lifestyle on social media which are totally different from each other, we can lose ourselves, our unique identity, our own beauty, and even our life.







  1. Refute the opponent’s 2nd argument

Your team said that the unrealistic beauty of models is for the purpose of promoting products of brands that influence teenagers through social networks, but the reality is not like what the models show. I disagree I think if they really do have not a perfect body like in the picture, there are many ways for viewers to recognize it. Today, images of models appear not only on personal social networks but also through the lenses of reporters, journalists, and their fans. If the products advertised by them are not effective, it will greatly affect their reputation. No one trades a reputation and career for a poor-quality product. And smart users can recognize and choose good products for themselves. More than that, you must find out where your eating disorder is coming from? Is it because you follow your idol or your workout diet is unscientific. Not all products of any brand are suitable for your body. Some people can use it, but some people do not because any product has contraindications for some people. Therefore, your job is to research carefully the information before deciding to use anything for yourself. This is very important because you should be a smart consumer, don't let social networks affect your life and beauty health.

  1. Present the 2nd argument

Our second argument against this resolution is that most people know that having a striking model-like appearance can make you more successful in life and directly affect income. This is true because attractive people impress others at first sight and easily gain sympathy from others. Beauty Pays author (Daniel Hamermesh – Professor of Economics at the University of Texas), said: that people with attractive appearances are likely to make 3% to 4% more money than the average person, estimated at $230,000 (4 billion 830 million VND). ) for the rest of their lives. Even for workers, the money gap with a person with a beautiful appearance, a beautiful person earns about $ 140,000 more (2 billion 940 million VND) than those who are inferior in terms of beauty.” This is very important because good looks are very necessary, we should not take it lightly and constantly learn to beautify ourselves.

  1. Refute the opponent’s view point

Your team said that most people know that having a striking model-like appearance can make you more successful in life and directly affect income. I disagree I think Getting a good job and winning the favor of others is not just based on their looks but on their abilities and personality. If a person has only look and no ability, what can they do for the company? Therefore, relying on looks to get a good job is not entirely right.



  1. Present the 3rd argument

The last argument is that models setting a fake image of beauty directly contribute to make people, especially females more prone to plastic surgery because it makes them look imperfectly "perfect" and more confident. Since then, the “dolls” look more and more similar to each other, sometimes we even think they are sisters or twins. Moreover, the ideal beauty is that everyone has spent a lot of money and time goes into it but you know, not every surgery is successful, there are cases where people have to regret wasting their time and money on it, not only that, but it's also bad for your health and even causes deaths. For example, in 2014, a 33 years old man from Los Angeles who was so infatuated with Justin Bieber because he is the iconic beauty of that time, then he paid over $100,000 on cosmetic surgery procedures. Toby Sheldon revealed that he has spent the last 5 years in and out of his cosmetic surgeon’s operating room having numerous aesthetic procedures including eyes lift, hair transplants, face filters, chin reductions and lips lift to ensure his looks resemble those of the Canadian pop star. Worryingly, Mr Sheldon has said that he still isn’t happy with his look and plans to have more cosmetic surgeries to ensure he achieves his dream image. You can never be the spitting image of someone else - unless you have a twin - so you are likely to never be satisfied with your looks if you try to change all your facial features with cosmetic surgery and i would say it’s super crazy and meaningless to chase to the thing called “beauty standards”







  1. Refute the opponent’s 3rd argument

Your team said that models pose a false image of beauty that directly contributes to making people, especially women, more inclined to have plastic surgery because it makes them look “perfect” and more confident. I disagree, I think that plastic surgery people are not affected by the image of the model but by themselves wanting to be more beautiful. Moreover, nowadays when you choose a reputable cosmetic place, the doctors will advise on how to make you beautiful harmoniously according to your own contours. Plus, investing in yourself is an investment that never loses. Because not everyone has a good appearance and aesthetics is a great method that can make you beautiful and change your whole life. For example, the program Change Life is broadcast on VTV2 in association with the beauty salon Kang Nam. Helped many people with imperfect appearance and low self-esteem in life but they are not qualified for plastic surgery. The program has helped them gain more confidence in life, some of whom are currently very successful in advertising thanks to their new look. This is very important because I want to emphasize that aesthetics is not bad, but how your aesthetic is important.

  1. Present the 3rd argument

The third argument against this resolution is that if you want to have a beautiful body like a model, you must exercise and have a reasonable diet, which helps your body stay healthy and slow aging compared to the average person. This is true because both diet and physical activity play an important role in maintaining healthy body weight, and reducing excess body weight; At the same time, exercise has been shown to improve your mood and reduce feelings of depression, anxiety, and stress. For example, Victoria's Secret model Rosie shared her workout and diet secrets to maintain her "angelic" figure according to the Naturopath method - healing and wellness based on muscle training body and natural therapies without drugs. And she follows the diet of author Nigma Talib: "Younger Skin Starts in the Gut" which requires completely eliminating dairy products, gluten, sugar, and alcohol. She said, “It is really a revolution for me.” This is important because nowadays people should pay more attention to health and beauty in order to lead a happy life.

The last argument is that models setting a fake image of beauty directly contribute to make people, especially females more prone to plastic surgery because it makes them look imperfectly "perfect" and more confident.

  1. Make conclusion

In conclusion, models cause us to forget who we are and lose our distinctive fascination and attraction. They are setting incorrect beauty standards, which has a negative impact on most of their followers' identity concerns and creates a health risk. Their image has a role in people's (especially females') addiction to plastic surgery, with unintended effects (looking, inner health, life).





  1. Make conclusion

To sum up, the fact that although we may set standards of beauty we must be like this guy or that guy, this girl or that girll but don't forget we all have our own uniqueness and special standards in terms of beauty. be yourself and love what you have now.
