So imagine my surprise when I read that the Parents Television Council announced that the photo spread "borders on pedophilia." The PTC explains: "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."
Wow. So now 24-year-old actors who portray teenagers on TV are out-of-bounds? (When I wrote about Glee before, I even mentioned that the actors all look way too old.) Admittedly, they're playing up the lockers to give the spread some context for the show, but Lea Michelle could be wearing the same outfit in an old folks' home, and she'd still be sexy as hell. This seems like a tenuous complaint at best. On the bright side, at least people in the world still get outraged over magazine photo shoots; maybe print media isn't dead after all.
