Why are modeling companies blamed for unrealistic beauty standards?

Are young girls somehow spending more time looking at pictures of models than spending time with the women around them? I feel like young girls see normal women way more than supermodels and understand what a normal human looks like. I think judgement on looks comes mainly from the girls who are their peers rather than some model in a magazine that is clearly photoshopped.

    A modeling agency's job is providing a woman that makes every other woman want to wear the clothes she has on. That's her job, looking gorgeous in someone elses clothes. The problem is that most women just don't fit into the same category as the models. The average dress size of the American woman is a size 16. Most of the models in the clothing magazines wear a size 4 or 6, which really makes them a freak of nature.

    The public decides what they like to see, not the agencies.

    "unrealistic beauty standards" are demanded by the Advertisers,

    not the modeling agencies.

    The agency is merely trying to fulfill the demands of their clients.

    If the clients wanted fat pigs, the agency would them fat pigs.
