    I hate seeing people online claiming to be models when all it is that someone has taken a photo or themselves or posing to gain attention. Something anyone can do, I can literally get someone to take photos of me with a good camera, would that make me a model?

    On Instagram I see it a lot girls and some men too wanting money in exchange for pictures. Why would I want that? The whole thing doesn't make sense, glamour modelling is just free money for what you look like to me and the fact someone out there will find you attractive, literally anyone can do it. If it's meant to turn me on I'll just look at porn instead or better do it in real life. Most importantly unless you actually know the person I couldn't give a **** about someone's photos.

    What are your opinions on this?

    No it would not make you a model but they aren't offending you/physically harming you by being under this false pretence of being a model, let them be, maybe it boosts their confidence or shows their progress in building muscle, everyone has their ways of expressing themselves

    Dont follow those ppl then, some guys may actually pay and the girls are clearly happy to sell their body pics so let them be even if it seems ethically wrong

    Yes but overall I do agree with your points, maybe some ppl cant view porn cos theyre at work or are afraid of viruses idk but still want to see some of that stuff?

    If you don't like it then just ignore it. Some people like looking at those kind of things on Instagram.

    Im guessing these things make you feel insecure?
