when girls act like they’re models. I don’t know, it shouldn’t bother me because it doesn’t really affect anyone at all, but I get so annoyed at fake people. Stop posting in your tumblr descriptions and on your facebook about me’s that you’re a model. When someone’s friends take pictures of them and then they edit them with tons of effects and the blur tool, they’re not a model. When someone has to go around ASKING people to model for them, they’re most likely not a model. Having many pictures of yourself doesn’t make you a model. If you have a large, professional portfolio, then you can call yourself a model. I was one of 50-60 girls on the entire east coast of USA that was even invited to a private audition of America’s Next Top Model in NYC. I went to it in March. They picked the semi-finalists for the show from that audition. I’ve been closer to modeling than most of the “models” that I know who act like they’re a model. Even with that experience, I wouldn’t dare to call myself a real model. I’m no model at all.
Calling yourself a model on the internet is just a poor way of making yourself seem better than other people and quite frankly, no one cares.
