Bent[edit]

This entire piece seems to be bent. Whoever helped write this wasn't trying to contribute but to leverage some twisted view. Clean it up and out.

Models and ethnicity[edit]

This page talks about the models since 1960 till now a days, the different type of models and their standards, how they have to look and the measures or the characteristics they need to have and how those characteristics places them in certain a type or category. For example, come of this categories are fashion models (models who work for the runways, couture, among others), glamour (type of models who sell sexuality), fitness, parts models (hand models, legs, etc.), among others. But it doesn't mention anything about the injustice towards some particular ethnic models. For example, models who fit the standards required for the job they are applying to sometimes they don’t even get taken in consideration because of their ethnicity. Most runway shows don't have on purpose more than one black model and rarely a latino model. In my opinion this is an act of racism and should be talked and resolved, many models struggle every day to get a job in the fashion industry because they are not accepted even though they have the necessary requirements to the job. In the last big fashion shows we could see that the models were mostly white and some asian, there weren't much latino or black models. This is something that is happening right now and should be added and talked with the purpose of creating conscience among people. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:8013:5DD0:7D08:9231:E60E:B9C2 (talk) 08:34, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Model (people)Model (person) – The article title in its current state seems to contradict rules laid out in WP:SINGULAR and WP:PARENDIS. In addition, the article actually was located at model (person) previously, but it got moved without much discussion. Erpert blah, blah, blah... 02:36, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

  • Support this move 2601:541:4305:C70:217D:EDD1:7C4:B1FE (talk) 21:34, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Those not familiar with Wikipedia conventions might read the proposed form as "model person." Shouldn't it be model (fashion)? Gulangyu (talk) 21:37, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Support, If it was "Models (people)", that would be fine, but Model singular should be "person." And the article is not just about fashion models, though it does lean heavily in that direction. Carptrash (talk) 23:08, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose Model (person), Support Model (fashion), "Person" doesn't exactly make much sense either whereas "fashion" makes abit more sense so I support the fashion one. –Davey2010Talk 01:27, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
@Davey2010: So how do you deal with the second part of the definition "or to serve as a visual aide for people who are creating works of art or to pose for photography." which has nothing to do with fashion?
  • Move to Fashion model per WP:NATURAL. -- Necrothesp (talk) 15:27, 1 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Support per nom; oppose Fashion model as the scope of the topic this article covers is wider than only models in fashion. In fact, Fashion model redirects to a section of this article. SSTflyer 09:20, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Support returning heading back to Model (person) since a Model is a person, not a people.Glenn Francis (talk) 03:30, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Strong Oppose Model (Fashion Model) since a Fashion model is a specific sub-catagory of Model of which a model may or may not be a part of. Glenn Francis (talk) 00:15, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Support per nom and for internal consistency. Also, fashion model is a subtopic, so Fashion model or Model (fashion) would be inappropriate. Rebbing 03:59, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
