Obviously, some people, my self included, don't think there's a problem with
that.  Obviously, the models don't either...  In the sense of "fashion", in
general, the models are but mannequins...very pose-able mannequins.

It's the same with photographers, ad agencies/clients treat us the same objects, same with Engineers and same with burger flippers at BK.

I honestly don't understand the "issue" here you think is reasonably
objectionable.  Are you thinking of it like prostitution?
