Sheesh. Calm down, people. This law was enacted because models are under pressure to make themselves alarmingly and unhealthily thin. There's no "demand" for that other than from male fashion designers who like their clothes to drape nicely over a pretty coat hanger so their pristine seams aren't muddled by a woman's natural curves.

They're just asking photographers not to make women appear so thin they'd basically be dead in reality.

Nobody's asking you not to retouch out wrinkles, bags, stray hairs or pimples.

If a "nanny state" saves young women's lives by forcing male designers not to starve them to death, then bring on the nannies.

Wouldn't this law do the opposite to what is meant to? Because if it won't be solved with photoshop, agencies will look only for bodies that suit their taste... with that forcing model to be dead in reality. Or staying without the job.

I didn't say "men;" I said "male fashion designers." in fact, I specifically pointed out that there is really no call for that look from anyone other than fashion designers, and that rest of the world other than fashion designers includes men. So you basically repeated and expanded on what I said yet claimed misandry on my part.   ::)



In the first page you made a comment that simply stated, and I quote: "Men.  ::)"

Plus, it's not the first time you make considerations about "Men" (general, all) without any type of relativism. In fact, it's quite common.

So yes, unless you're not very articulate in expressing your opinions (doubtful) many of your ideas involving men have a clear  taste of misandry. And that's a pity because you sound like an intelligent woman. But then again, there are intelligent men who suffer from misogyny too, so...

Whats worse than a male chauvanist? A female chauvanist using the same tactics but claiming the moral high ground  ;D

All humans are chauvanisitic irrespective of gender.

Cats on the other hand don't care, all humans are furless meat bags who are only on this earth for our pleasure  :D

That was in reference to the fact that a bunch of men started whining in this thread about "nanny state" and not ever being able to retouch anything ever at all, which is certainly not the case with this law. I didn't see any female photographers complaining; rather they pointed out that the thread title was awful and why this law unfortunately has to exist. But maybe I was wrong. Perhaps the people I thought were women are actually men masquerading as women, and perhaps some of the "men" are secretly women. Doubt it, tho.

Sorry but that's just a bunch of BS excuses! When you write "Men.  ::)" you are actually not just talking about the people in this thread. Please don't try to play innocent because I know you know better.

You're using their sex/gender as derogatory term and a form of criticism for them being from a sex/gender they were born in. And in the process include all men.

If you actually wanted to specifically refer to the men of this thread you could easily build a phrase to state that. But no, you simply stated: "Men.  ::)"

All along my life I've heard a lot of comments just saying "women" in the exact same context and intention you wrote yours. It has always been considered an offense by all the women present and considered a misogynist and machist comment. And they didn't even need to be feminists to be offended by the "women" comment.

And I would bet a million dollars (if I had them) that you got angry all along your life when you heard the comment "women" in the same type of context your wrote yours.

So, I do not see how I can interpret your comment differently from the example above and not consider it a misandrist comment. And as I said it's not the first or tenth time you make comments in this line of thought. So I'm doubtful this was kind of slip, but rather a reflection of your reactions towards men.

I live in Italy and I'm looking to sign up to a new gym for a membership now that winter is coming and won't be able to bike. You know what, there's a government requirement that all new applicants to gyms must have a certificate from a doctor that they're in good health before they can sign up. Which is strange because why do most people join gyms anyway?  ???

So, I went to this stupid doctor and got the certificate which cost me 40 euros. All the test was to check I had a pulse and could breathe. Seriously? I bet you that the Italian medical profession lobbied to have this regulation put in place as another form of stealth tax.

Another nanny state strikes again!

If you are regularly leaving in Italy, as a foreigner, you should have a "Permesso di Soggiorno / Carta di Soggiorno" or similar, and so you should have a Tessera Sanitaria like any Italian resident.
This card allows you to consult the medico di base who is assigned to you for free

The "certificato di attivit sportiva non agonistica per fini assicurativi" (certificate of non-competitive sporting activity for insurance purposes) costs 40 euro. It is like this for everybody.
It is necessary for the insurance covering you in the case of an accident in the Gym (in fact the insurance asks it, not the gym).
As accidents happen enough often in the Gyms it is absolutely normal that the owner of the gym asks you to have an insurance.

And if you don't agree with the rules and the laws of the country hosting you, you are always free to go to live elsewhere Baciami il culo e arrivederci :D

Although I agree that the measure innocently wants to tackle a problem that is happening in our hyperconnected societies where fitness gods and goddess are pushed up in the social media altars, magazines tv shows etc the measure will backfire in many ways. I thinks these are some negative implication of this measure:

1-      The beauty trend of slim bodies is fortunately not going away from our societies. We are following again the classic greek aesthetics of body shapes and that is not going to change soon. And I am glad for it. As it has been already said western societies have a much bigger problem with obesity and overweight population than the contrary. It is all those images that are pushing millions of people to practice sports and eat better. Anorexia might kill some hundreds in Europe every year.....overweight kills hundred thousands. You cannot even compare the problem. You need a strong and regular will to do sport and to eat healthy. It is much easier to watch the latest tv show on the couch while eating some fries. But we dont want to look fat we want to look in shape in our mirrors and here the influence of all those published perfect bodies is a strong incentive.
   
2-      Thank to photoshop the tyranny for the models to be a their 100% is over. A little overweight can be corrected without a problem at the push of a button. If this is not more possible photographers,agencies etc will look for even more perfect bodies. This will be much harder to maintain and I think a jump to surgery will be more common.
     
3-      Photography the same as movies drawing music is a form of artistic creation. It is wrong to impose arbitrary artificially limitation to it. Should we ban from the museums painter John Currin and only show Rubens. Should be forbid violence in movies because some idiot might be influenced and do so terrible act. Should be forbid rap music etc, where do trace the line ?

4-      What are the consequences for Getty. It depends. If all the other agencies follow this decision everything will balance out. But if other agencies do not follow this rule or for example use a button to just specify if image has been retouched or not they will have a competitive advantage. They will get images that Getty wont. It will not matter in a few months time but in a couple of years Getty will notice this disadvantage and will have to act.  I would think that to make clear if an image has been retouched (changed body form, nose,hair etc) would be much more interesting for buyers. The no filter trend is exploding and to know that an image has been altered or not at all would be for sure interesting for clients.

5-      The argument that Getty is taking this action because of the french law is a lie. They are taking this action because they want. There are many laws in dozens of nations that conflict with some images of the library but they dont limit it, and they shouldnt. Because if tomorrow Poland comes up with a law against nudes or Mexico forbids showing images of children will Getty follow. I dont think so. By this new french law they are simply obliged to state if the image has been retouched or not. They went all the way to banning any body shape contouring. Of course they can do what they find convenient but to attribute it to the french law is not speaking the truth.

There are MILLIONS of slim girls out there, and people here talk like they are an endangered species! Incredible!

The truth is, for some people on this forum the use of the word "Slim" actually means anorexic and even alien with impossible long legs. You are just masquerading your actual preference with a "political correct" term. Not different from obese people wanting to be called plus size, or BBW or whatever.

Anorexic girls with visible rib cages, protruding collarbones with a non-existent stomach and sucked in faces are NOT slim! Stop calling them that! As I said, there are MILLIONS of slim girls out there. Hit the gym at any hour and you get to see more slim girls than in any model agency casting. Those are slim girls, not anorexic ones you try to pass as slim.

As for the nanny state comments they are simply absurd. Unless you live in a civil war zone, you all live in nanny states. One more than others, but all states are nanny's. We all have to comply with thousands of rules and laws created to protect people from others actions.

To take in such disregard the health of younger generations by neglecting the education through positive row models, good examples and best practices is absurd.

Put it in your heads, young boys and girls are very easily influenced. They tend to follow what is considered cool with extremely limited critical spirit. So, like parents need to educate their young, the society as a whole (through state) also needs to take some measures to educate and protect their young.

That's why the consumption of alcohol, driving, and thousands of other examples are restricted for younger people. All this commotion about a couple stupid clicks in photoshop is absolute non-sense.

This has nothing to do with the promotion and acceptance of obesity as normal. That's another war altogether. And I agree with all the criticism here about the way obesity is starting to be seen as normal, and even beautiful and it's almost forbidden to criticize it. But it's another issue.

The truth is, if you're complaining about not being able to make a couple adjustments in photoshop, that means that the girl you've photographed is already beautiful to the point you only need a couple adjustments! Just leave it be.

It's not like you're photographing a 300kg woman to make her look 50kg! This is absolute non-sense.

Its not about "fat" its about borderline anorexic  being portrayed as a desirable body shape...the industry only has itself to blame for this "over correction"

Its not about "anorexic" its about borderline obese being portrayed as a normal body shape... the society only has itself to blame for this "correction"

I grew up in a communist country. This whole thing straightforward reminds me of what the commies did to art and portrayal of people in art and commerce. It was the proletariat, the "workers paradise" so on almost all depiction, especially public statues and painting, they hand to be these chunky, robust characters with cubic heads and large thick hands, women having the same large thick hands as men. Sad to see the total cluelessness to the point of mental degeneration in western ppl, probably coming from near zero history education, not noticing what their culture is sliding into ever more rapidly. It will be sad, bleak and painful, believe me.

Despite this incredible lack of education & knowledge about humanity's history, I still don't see why it is so hard recognize the severe threat when you such ideologies rapidly invading every field of life, flooding everything with dictates. When you see that either push back as hard as you can, or if you can't.... run!

"Anorexic girls with visible rib cages, protruding collarbones"

The only reason for those bones not be visible is severe obesity. For your ribs / rib muscles not show you have to be really-really fat my friend. You and others need to catch up on human anatomy and standards of health. I guess his is what happens to people when they grow up in a society where obesity is the norm. Prime example is women (usually misandric ones) going around showing pics of Marilyn Monroe saying, " look this the true normal for being hot, she was size 'M' ". Then someone comes in and reminds them that Marilyn's size "M" clothes would be "XS" now, as the size charts adopted to most of society becoming FAT. Even the BMI chart got modified, os it doesn't bother people so much in the process of eating themselves to death. Meanwhile Obesity is the biggest, most tragic epidemic in the world.

Your comment is a contradiction in it self.

For one part you criticized the manipulated representation of the human figure to unreal standards, which is what is now happening with models and photoshop. If in your country the distortion of the human figure served ideological purposes, on the west it serves economical ones (economy which actually control western ideology).

On the other hand you criticize the decision of Getty and the French law, that has the objective to end that artificial manipulation of unreal human bodies by saying ideology is invading every field of life.

100% strawman. I never talked unreal standards, ppl doing hard physical labor all their life do look like those commie statues. Then you just swapped the individual's decision with the outside dictates. :) Complete nonsense, doesn't fly, try again.

"Anorexic girls with visible rib cages, protruding collarbones"

The only reason for those bones not be visible is severe obesity. For your ribs / rib muscles not show you have to be really-really fat my friend. You and others need to catch up on human anatomy and standards of health. I guess his is what happens to people when they grow up in a society where obesity is the norm. Prime example is women (usually misandric ones) going around showing pics of Marilyn Monroe saying, " look this the true normal for being hot, she was size 'M' ". Then someone comes in and reminds them that Marilyn's size "M" clothes would be "XS" now, as the size charts adopted to most of society becoming FAT. Even the BMI chart is got modified! Meanwhile Obesity is the biggest, most tragic epidemic in the world.

FYI I did not grow in a country affected by obesity, and despite this problem is growing really fast it has happened only in the last decade or so. When I was a kid the fattest kid in my class is the new "normal". The fast food chains (McDonalds and such) only entered here about 20 years ago and only in the major cities. Coca-cola wasn't even allowed until the 1980's.

So I do not have a skewed view of the subject.

I'm not talking about visible collarbones. I'm talking about protruding collarbones like they are about to pop out of a thin layer of skin. The same for ribcages. It's obvious if a person is slim you see the contour of it and in some positions each rib too. But I'm talking skin and muscle sunken into the ribs even in the normal standing position. That's not normal.

Plus, I know what a 1,65m tall, weighting 50/53kg fit woman looks like and I never seen a sunken ribcage or collarbones about to burst out of the body on her.

I was a competition athlete and contacted daily with extremely fit women (the national champion type) and never saw what you describe as normal. The contours of the body sure and a hint of bones. But nothing sunken.

Just google slim woman on google images and tell me how many protruding bones you can see? People here accuse the obesity defenders of trying to pass obesity as normal, while defending the exact same but in opposite direction. A slim woman is not the same as skinny woman (search this too and compare).

Slim women are EVERYWHERE. There's no shortage of them and they don't need photoshop.

Yes, we all live in states governed by governments.  ;)

It's true that we all have to believe in written and un-written rules and regulations to facilitate trust and cooperation between members of society. But we should always be alert and speak-up against unnecessary and excessive rules and regulations, impacting our freedom.

In some states, bureaucrats believe they know better how much Coke I can drink in a restaurant, to be healthy.
In other states, bureaucrats tell you who you are allowed to love.
In other states, bureaucrats jail you for growing or smoking pot. They take money away from small farmers only to give it to Big Pharma to end-up with a massive opioid crisis.
In other states, bureaucrats fine you for walking in a park, after sunset.
In another state, wearing a bulletproof vest while committing or attempting to commit murder is an offense  :o
In France, bureaucrats regulate how to use Photoshop.
...
And I can go on forever with dumb and dumber laws imposed on us by strangers who know nothing about our lives.

So there is nothing absurd in demanding decency and common sense when it comes to regulations, in demanding respect for our freedoms.
There is nothing absurd in fighting against the abuse of power and the arrogance of strangers who believe they know better what is good or bad for us and coerce us to obey their beliefs.

Pour these on someone else, I studied anatomy/art anatomy in university and I work with models, and I go the gym every 2nd day, I'm pretty hardcore. The only thing on ribs is very thin muscles (unless you are a roided up bodybuilder) and thin skin. It's some of thinnest skin, even if you start getting fat, it's some of the last parts where it builds. And no slim women (or men) are not everywhere, sadly. Go out on the street it's a potbelly (or worse) showcase. Even small kids are starting to be severely obese, that's why profs/docs are desperately ringing the alarm bell... and as I can see here too, nobody listens. I go look at a VS show, and those girls look like feminine athletes, picture of health. Or you show ppl like Rory Bosio, and they get bashed - saying that she is sick, and should got to a doctor -  by people who have to take a break with their heads going purple, going up to the 2nd floor. Ridiculous.

Google... plz. Google "white couple". rotfl.

It was the proletariat, the "workers paradise" so on almost all depiction, especially public statues and painting, they hand to be these chunky, robust characters with cubic heads and large thick hands, women having the same large thick hands as men. Sad to see the total cluelessness to the point of mental degeneration in western ppl, probably coming from near zero history education, not noticing what their culture is sliding into ever more rapidly. It will be sad, bleak and painful, believe me.

Despite this incredible lack of education & knowledge about humanity's history, I still don't see why it is so hard recognize the severe threat when you such ideologies rapidly invading every field of life, flooding everything with dictates. When you see that either push back as hard as you can, or if you can't.... run!

I'll have what you're smoking!

12yaerold's copy paste answer.  "Am I cool yet? Am I cool yet?" This isn't youtube.

I'll have you know, I typed that all out myself; thank you very much. I'm just curious how Getty Images no longer accepting retouched body shapes, and people's comments on the situation... is down to 'total cluelessness to the point of mental degeneration', 'near zero history education' and an 'incredible lack of education & knowledge about humanity's history'? That's maybe a little bit extreme!

Getty's decision is just based on risk aversion a) Of getting sued b) of touching anything on their IT "system" in case the whole precarious pack of cards comes tumbling down

Not retouching already thin women to look skeletal is a stranglehold on people's rights in a nanny state dictatorship which will inevitably lead to a communist dystopia...the mental gymnastics in this thread are hilarious.

Why do you make it only about women and thinning?

Justin Bieber wants his penis and hands enlarged, not thinned!
Same goes for women wanting their breasts enhanced. Again, it is much better to use Photoshop, than a scalpel to achieve such wishes.

The law is applicable to all, not only to what fits your ideological agenda.
Let people do it, even if you arrogantly think you know better what is good for them!

If you knew the history of what's going on in modeling, especially in the epicenter of the fashion industry, Paris, you'd understand why the law was passed.

This law was passed in 2015 and also bans extremely thin models.

And instead of being obsessed with women having huge breasts, by either photoshop or surgery, why has it not occurred to you that perhaps society should accept that women have different breast sizes?


Edited to correct some inaccuracies. I didn't realize one law covered both topics and was passed two years ago.
