The Truth about Goats

“1 in 3 female models live in silhouette”


Shocking new statistics released by the World Health Organization suggest that one third of all female models are forced to exist in some form of visually obscured format. The trauma of partner and non-partner violence against women has been compounded by this loss of identity for actresses and models in range of media depictions.

WHO head Margaret Chan says the problem has reached “epidemic proportions”, with many actresses surviving in just a pixilated or a crayon version. The WHO document adds that “stigma” of looking out-of-focus or blurry prevents many models from auditioning as victims of abuse.

Some male models have also felt penalized by the new statistics on violence. One model commented: “Gone are the days when we were encouraged to smile to camera. Now every photograph requires an enraged profile shot. You just end up with a bowel-moving, gurn. Likewise, when we pose for stills it’s always with a clenched fist, raised arm or doing a ‘Saatchi’”

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
