Glee Under Fire

"It is disturbing that GQ, which is explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on Glee in this way. It borders on pedophilia. Sadly, this is just the latest example of the overt sexualization of young girls in entertainment."

Those are the words of Parent Television Council President Tim Winter on the recent GQ spread that featured three stars of the FOX hit Glee. As you can clearly see the pictures in a post below, Lea Michele seemed to drop any inhibition that she had and posed with her legs spread wearing only a pair of underwear.

Winters goes on to say that "Many children who flocked to High School Musical have grown into Glee fans. They are now being treated to seductive, in-your-face poses of the underwear-clad female characters posing in front of the school lockers, one of them opting for a full-frontal crotch shot. By authorizing this kind of near-pornographic display, the creators of the program have established their intentions of the show's direction. And it isn't good for families. 
"With a demonstrated market of eager fans for an entertaining, musical-themed program like Glee, we wonder why the show's creators feel the need for such graphic sexualization of women. Interestingly, the photos of the male character showed him wearing a shirt, tie and vest."
Well you heard the man Cory Montieth.  Drop trou' and take a bow!

The "male character" didn't show any skin because the pics were taken by ultra gross Terry Richardson. Even though many models have come out and said he sexually harassed them I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise that the creep is still getting high-profile work. w/e

Did they forget that while the actors/actresses in Glee are playing teens, they're [i]actually[/i] in their early to late 20s?

The actors are in their 20s, but Glee's audience are teenagers. And the GQ pics are all over the net. It's not like only adult men'll see them. They are disgusting.
