Racy Glee photos kick up a storm

A sexy shoot for the November issue of GQ magazine featuring cast members of the hit US TV show Glee has kicked up a storm in media land.

The pictures of Lea Michele (Rachel), Dianna Agron (Quinn) and Corey Monteith (Finn) are dominated by short skirts, high heels and suggestive poses with lollipops. Although all three actors are in their 20s, the reaction has been fierce.

Entertainment writer Mary Elizabeth Williams said GQ's playing up of the sexy teen angle was ‘just creepy’, while the Parents Television Council, a conservative watchdog based in the US, said: ‘This is just the latest example of the overt sexualization of young girls in entertainment.’

Glee is not exactly a show for kids, and many have brushed off the comments, noting the adult themes the programme deals with. Perhaps the real shocker though is that Monteith, the only male in the shoot, remains clothed throughout. Is some equality in gender representation too much to ask?

Sorry, I’ll get off my soapbox now.
