    Default The big "Glee" GQ photoshoot controversy

    Doubt that there are many "Glee" watchers out there, but lately some of the cast of the show, based upon a high school glee club, have been fielding controversy over a racy photo shoot they did for mens magazine GQ

    with recent dust ups about the Miley Cyrus photo shoot for Vanity Fair, I wonder what they could have been thinking...the lollipop pose is definitly over the top

    Parents Television council has called it "border line pedophilia.

    Granted the actors are all in their 20's but the characters they play are high schoolers and the photos clearly depict them as underaged

    so what do you think?







    GQ Glee Photo Shoot Too Sexy?
    The actors of the high school TV show "Glee" caused a stir after posing for a sexy GQ Magazine photo shoot.


    (CBS) The hit TV show "Glee" is set in a high school, but some of its actors are looking and acting a lot older than their characters on the show in a racy new photo spread. The actors ARE older than their characters. However, the photo shoot has some loyal viewers outraged.

    The new photo spread is raising some eyebrows, CBS News correspondent Betty Nguyen reported on "The Early Show."

    It has shots of "Glee" stars Dianna Agron and Lea Michele scantily clad, in next month's GQ magazine.


    Jim Moore, GQ creative director, says, "We wanted to make it GQ. We wanted to make it sexy. We didn't want to make it raunchy or anything."

    But did they go too far? The cover of the magazine shows a fully-dressed Cory Monteith with his hands on his co-star's backsides and the behind-the-scenes video shows that things got a little wild, and very sexy.

    Moore said, "They were definitely up for playing and turning up the heat a little bit."

    "Glee," which airs on Fox and follows students of a fictional high school, is watched by more than nine million viewers -- many of them children and adolescents. And that has critics less than "gleeful."

    Melissa Henson, director of communication of the Parents Television Council, says, "All of these are really encouraging and promoting a mindset that it is OK to fantasize about teenage girls in this way."

    Agron and Michele are not teenagers -- they're both 24 -- but their "Glee" characters are.

    Well then...it's not even close to pedophilia.

    Just by the by, do any of the people on the PT council think it might be offensive to label this as "borderline pedophilia" when there are actual kids being harassed and taped by pedophiles?

    I think their point is that this is a publication for older men and the photos depict the actors as school aged girls in school settings

    their point seems to be that reinforcing the naughty school girl fantasy in middle aged men may not be appropriate for a mainstream magazine


    if anyone has ever watched Glee, you will know that it is not exactly family fare, at least not for younger children....it's not a Disney show that's for sure

    That's a far leap from "border-line pedophilia", though.

    Wow, people do get their lather up for unimportant items.

    They are over 18, they are fully clothed, it is a men's magazine.

    Enough said, go put some effort in to catching real pedophiles.

    well, then how do you feel about the legislation in many states that treats "virtual" child pornography the same as actual child pornography....you could say that no child was injured if it is only computer generated, but doesn't it still satisfy the same deviant desires?

    Amen brother.

    I've posted plenty of those "school girl" photos in the hot chick thread, does that make me and all the guys that "read" that thread pedophiles?

    I think it's sexy... and I want to spank some naughty, naughty girls!

    Seriously though... dress the cast of CSI-Miami in the same outfits, and nobody gives a crap.

    Men don't care what show they are on, they care about whats on the page in front of them when they're punching the clown.

    This is so stupid that anyone is even giving this attention at all? Google Britney Spears Rolling Stone 1999, she was 17 at the time and I don't remember anyone getting at all uptight about that. I will say though you can tell that Michele chick is really into it, I bet this was all her idea.

    What is the difference of this compared to watching Fast Times at Ridgemont High where Phoebe Cates takes off her top? I mean she is playing a high school senior and the entire movie revolves around a bunch of high schoolers. What the most iconic gratuitous nudity shots of the 80's is basically kiddie porn according to these standards.

    There are hundreds of other high school coming of age movies where teenage sex is shown on the screen.

    How is this really different? Because it involves a popular show? The intent is the same which is to turn on men. It's a mens magazine so they should just deal with it.

    Well, with "Fast Times...", that was a movie. An R-Rated movie at that. Which means, kids weren't expected to be watching it. I don't know that any thought was given at the time that people, including kids, would be watching it in the privacy of their homes.

    "Glee", while not necessarily intended for teens, is probably watched by quite a few of them. And so these characters are identified with by those teens. And while they may be adults in real life, as far as the kids think, they are just like them. And so having them pose as they did, in character, sends the wrong message to those teenaged fans of theirs.

    Dear God Almighty, they have their clothes on!! There is some sexual innuendo, but it is a men's magazine, not Disney Playhouse Magazine.

    It someone has deviant desires from looking at that layout they have bigger problems. Everyones kids see more skin than that at the beach on summer vacation.

    I mean come one, how does ones have virtual child pornography? That is like being virtually pregnant. Either it is child pornagraphy or it is not.

    The people in the spread did not look underage, even if they did have a cheerleader outfit on, etc. My beautiful wife could wear the same thing and no one is going to think I am a pedophile for ooglng after her.

    How about all the freaking forty year old moms going "whooooo!" everytime one of those teenage dudes from Twilight take their shirts off. Are they pedophiles too?

    Arguing it is in poor taste is one thing, that is opinion, but there is no way THAT can be considered child pornography. No way.

    I just couldn't disagree more. One the list of things that our society needs to work on, this is somewhere around one trillionth.
