‘Glee’ stars’ racy schoolgirl photo shoot ‘harming women of all ages’October 26th, 2010 - 6:50 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Oct 26 (ANI): Experts have warned that young women posing suggestively as schoolgirls can harm women of all ages, as it promotes the idea that the younger the woman, the more appealing she is.
‘Glee’ stars Dianna Agron and Lea Michele got down and dirty for a GQ magazine spread released last week, set in high school, sucking lollipops, with their legs wide open.
“Although the actresses in the ‘Glee’ shoot are adults, they are dressed as schoolgirls,” Fox News quoted relationship expert Patrick Wanis, PhD as explaining.
“This promotes and drives the male obsession and desire for younger and younger women.
“The GQ ‘Glee’ photo shoot also sends the message to women that if you want to be attractive and appealing to men, then you need to be really young - a teenager - and sexual,” he stated.
According to Gavin McKiernan, the Parents Television Council’s National Grassroots Director, another problem with the racy “Glee” shoot is that it is blatantly sexist.
“We have seen this over and over again that youth stars are told they need to become sexy to make the step from young actress to adult leading lady, yet young male actors rarely need to jump through these same hoops,” McKiernan said.
In the photo spread, Monteith is fully clothed while his female counterparts are draped over him in next to no clothes, sporting kitschy, cliched makeup. (ANI)
