When you’re performing subversion on a mass scale, sometimes you have to make the chicks from your show pose like high school sluts to make everyone think the show is about high school sluts instead of gays and girls who love them singing in a choir. And sometimes that backfires. Like when the Parents Television Council released a statement saying that the November issue of GQ featuring Dianna Agron, Lea Michele, and some dude was “near-pornographic” and borderline “pedophilia”. Pedophilia? They’re chicks in their 20s. It’s not like they were wearing priest robes and handing out lollipops. Take it away, GQ Editor-in-Chief Jim Nelson The Insider reports:
“The Parents Television Council must not be watching much TV these days and should learn to divide reality from fantasy. “As often happens in Hollywood, these ‘kids’ are in their twenties,” he adds. “Cory Monteith is almost 30! I think they’re old enough to do what they want.”
Openly gay Glee creator, Ryan Murphy, tells GQ how Glee is a responsible family show. Okay. Popeater reports:
“I wanted to do my version of a family show. But we try to be as responsible as we can, because we know some young people watch.”
Ryan Murphy created Nip/Tuck, so he’ll always get a pass from me, but this GQ shoot isn’t pedophilia and Glee isn’t a family show. That is unless your dad is named Stacy and has a physical education degree and your brother was adopted from Korea.
