Raise your hand if you saw this one coming: The Parents Television Council has come down hard on a GQ Magazine photo shoot featuring the three leads of Fox’s ‘Glee,’ claiming that the cover and inside pictorial “borders on pedophilia.”
On the men’s magazine’s November cover, ‘Glee’ guy Cory Monteith poses with cast mates Dianna Agron and Lea Michele, his left hand situated on Michele’s almost-bare backside.
Other snaps from the shoot showcase Michele in barely-there underwear and knee socks, straddling a lock room bench in panties and a push-up bra, and posing “strict schoolteacher”-like in lingerie and heels and wielding a pointer that may as well be a riding crop.
Agron’s raciest attire, meanwhile, is the occasional satin bra and assorted pleated skirts.
The PTC calls the photo series “disturbing,” arguing that GQ, which targets an adult male audience, “is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on ‘Glee.’”
Although both Michele and Agron are 24 in real life, PTC President Tim Winter derides GQ for delivering “the latest example of the overt sexualization of young girls in entertainment.”
“Many children who flocked to ‘High School Musical’ have grown into ‘Glee’ fans,” Winter says in his statement. “They are now being treated to seductive, in-your-face poses of the underwear-clad female characters posing in front of school lockers, one of them opting for a full-frontal crotch shot. By authorizing this kind of near-pornographic display, the creators of ['Glee'] have established their intentions on the show’s direction. And it isn’t good for families.”
The PTC then goes on – at considerable length – to posit that ‘Glee’ cocreator Ryan Murphy’s assumed approval of this photo shoot theme is part of some larger plan that the man who also gave TV ‘Nip/Tuck’ has “to remove every barrier to the depiction of explicit sex on TV.” But you can read that tangent at the PTC website, if you so desire.
Fox declined to comment for Fancast on the PTC’s criticisms, while GQ did not immediately respond to our email.

I’d like to start by saying that these are solely my thoughts on the November issue of GQ and the controversy that has surrounded its release. I am not a representative of the three of us, the show, or Fox, only myself.
In the land of Madonna, Britney, Miley, Gossip Girl, other public figures and shows that have pushed the envelope and challenged the levels of comfort in their viewers and fans…we are not the first. Now, in perpetuating the type of images that evoke these kind of emotions, I am sorry. If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention. And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry. But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?
I was a very sheltered child, and was not aware of anything provocative or risque in the media while I was navigating through my formative years. When I was finally allowed to watch a movie like Grease, I did not even understand what on earth Rizzo was talking about!? I understand that in today’s world of advanced technology, the internet, our kids can be subject to very adult material at the click of a button. But there are parental locks, and ways to get around this. I am twenty-four years old. I have been a pretty tame and easy-going girl my whole life. Nobody is perfect, and these photos do not represent who I am. I am also not the girl who rolls out of bed with flawless makeup and couture clothing. I am most comfortable with my hair thrown on top of my head, in sweats, laughing with my friends. Glee is a show that represents the underdogs, which is a feeling I have embraced much of my own life, and to those viewers, the photos in GQ don’t give them that same feeling. I understand completely.
For GQ, they asked us to play very heightened versions of our school characters. A ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’ version. At the time, it wasn’t my favorite idea, but I did not walk away. I must say, I am trying to live my life with a sharpie marker approach. You can’t erase the strokes you’ve made, but each step is much bolder and more deliberate. I’m moving forward from this one, and after today, putting it to rest. I am only myself, I can only be me. These aren’t photos I am going to frame and put on my desk, but hey, nor are any of the photos I take for magazines. Those are all characters we’ve played for this crazy job, one that I love and am so fortunate to have, each and every day. If you asked me for my dream photo shoot, I’d be in a treehouse, in a wild costume, war-paint and I’d be playing with my pet dragon. Until then…..
I Love Her *-*
