Glee Girls Gone Wild, But Where Are The Boys?

Diana Agron psing for GQ

The Glee girls are flaunting all their goodies in the current issue of GQ. At least, some of the skinny, pretty white ones are. Madeline has a great post up about the lack of diversity in the Glee shot.

I just want to know where the boys are. Looking at this photo spread made me feel icky, and not in a cougarish way. More in a “worried about the world my kids are growing up in” way. Why is Cory Monteith even in this shoot? And, given that he is, why is he wearing pants?

I’m not asking only because the 20-something actor is easy on the eyes. I’m asking because the ladies are conspicuously missing their pants. Fair is fair, right?

I’m pro-sex, and I want my kids to grow up with a healthy, lusty embrace of their own sexuality. But the Glee shot isn’t about the girls’ sexuality at all. It’s a pinup fantasy of high school girls as pretty objects.

I’m not worried about my kids seeing these photos and being scarred by the sight of Rachel’s spread legs. At 6 and 3, they’re not big GQ readers. What worries me is the imbalance here, where the boy in the shoot is wearing regular street clothes and the girls are dressed like R-rated Barbies.

I know GQ’s readers aren’t interested in Monteith’s abs, but having him in jeans and long sleeves really seems like a bit too much contrast. It just serves to point up the obscene poses and outfits the actresses are posed in.
