  1. I like the vibe of these videos – no-nonsense deconstruction of topics. Modeling seems like a job were there will almost inherently be this whiplash of the high of attention/ praise / status for models and the lows of criticism / objectification /often poor health and financial instability. It’s like the whiplash of being in an abusive relationship.

  2. Can we talk about the Beautiful Chinese model who is getting slaughtered because she’s “too asian, has slanted eyes, etc” it’s really disgusting because she is gorgeous. It was one of those shorts on YT so I don’t exactly remember her name but she was getting death threats for “trying to ruin the image of Chinese beauty”

  3. She is dead. But it was an acident. She fell
