Q: Very good read about China's modeling industry.

Good takeaway

Also, I don’t think they are being taken care of properly. A lot of times, their privacy is not being protected. While working backstage for a German designer [in Shanghai] in 2015, there were times when a lot of workers were around while the girls were changing. You have to give them a space where they feel comfortable. As much as you see them as clothing racks, they’re humans, and they’re also extremely young, and it does make a lot of them uncomfortable.

what parent would allow their 14 year old daughter to work unaccompanied in a foreign country?

Modeling in China seems to be a magnet for pervs (think all the creepy guys who attended the car shows just for the models), and in a country with poor labour laws foreign (underage) models are ripe for (sexual) exploitation.

 

A 14 year old should be in school, and if a minor works as a model there should be a chaparone who ensures  the correct work conditions and hours are adhered to.

But then in China it is all about the money and f**k the people involved - they are expendable commodities.

 

There have been many very good reads on Sixth Tone - so it will probably be shut down soon.

"In China, they follow more Eurocentric beauty standards. People are promoting a look that is so generic, like it's manufactured."

 

Zombies cult CCP implemented extends to this area too. There is only one party, one criteria for physical attractiveness, one way to study (rote memorization) and copy other's homework, one kind of husband (the rich), one kind of wife (the boobs), one age to get marry (before 30), one kind of life (immoral) that is worth living.......

A related question is sure hookers every country has, the poorer the more, but why are there so many hookers from Russia and Ukraine? It turns out there is more to this 'Tochka' tradition than just poverty, which dates all the way back to the late 19th century. Later on, the communists' comrades thingy pours fuel onto this this as well, that goes without saying.

 

"Prostitution in Russia became common after Peter the Great's military reforms that created a sizable class of unmarried men who were serving in the military. These soldiers started generating a demand for prostitution. Monarchs who followed Peter I had different approaches to prostitution, ranging from complete abolition to decriminalization.

 

By the late 19th century, prostitution was legal in the Russian Empire and prostitutes were issued a special "yellow ticket" ID cards. Numerous brothels existed in most cities, ranging greatly in class and price. Customers included diverse groups ranging from the aristocracy to the working class. Legally, only women were allowed to own brothels. However, illegal street prostitution was still dominated by male pimps. The term kot (Russian: кот, cat) was used for a male pimp, while a female pimp was referred to as a bandersha (Russian: бандерша)."    

 

......Russia is a major source of women trafficked globally for the purpose of sexual exploitation [13][14] Russia is also a significant destination and transit country for persons trafficked for sexual and labor exploitation from regional and neighboring countries into Russia, and on to Europe, Asia and North America. In Tel Aviv the number of brothels skyrocketed from 30 to 150 between 1996 and 2001—largely because of an influx of Russian prostitutes into Israel.[15]

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
