Do you find people in their twenties attractive? Then you are a PEDOPHILE!

A recent photo shoot featuring models between the ages of 24 and 28 have parents groups screaming accusations of PEDOPHILIA.

Here's one of the photos in question (none have any nudity):

NSFW:


And here's an article about the outrage:

Spoiler:

‘Glee’ GQ Photo Shoot ‘Borders on Pedophilia’

The Glee photo shoot featured in the November issue of GQ is facing criticism from the Parents Television Council. The group recently chastised Miley Cyrus for her “Who Owns My Heart” video and Taylor Momsen on the cover of Revolver which, of course, made sense. (Although to a lesser extent with Taylor Momsen because she wasn’t the lynchpin of an entire franchise aimed at 12-year-olds. Plus who the hell is she?) But now they’re going a tad overboard by labeling the GQ shoot as “pedophilia” in an official statement:

“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. It borders on pedophilia. Sadly, this is just the latest example of the overt sexualization of young girls in entertainment,” said PTC President Tim Winter.
“Many children who flocked to ‘High School Musical’ have grown into ‘Glee’ fans. They are now being treated to seductive, in-your-face poses of the underwear-clad female characters posing in front of school lockers, one of them opting for a full-frontal crotch shot. By authorizing this kind of near-pornographic display, the creators of the program have established their intentions on the show’s direction. And it isn’t good for families.”

These people might actually have a point if Lea Michele and Dianna Agron weren’t both, oh I dunno, 24. Also, I’m pretty sure young girls aren’t picking up copies of GQ that don’t have Robert Pattinson on the cover, but back to my original point. Here’s the definition of pedophilia via Wikipedia:

As a medical diagnosis, pedophilia (or paedophilia) is typically defined as a psychiatric disorder in adults or late adolescents (persons age 16 and older) characterized by a primary or exclusive sexual interest in prepubescent children (generally age 13 years or younger, though onset of puberty may vary)

I’m about to blow the Parent Television Council’s mind here, but high school seniors are 18. Some even 19. Now whether it’s right or wrong to date one is between you and the end of her father’s shotgun, but there’s absolutely nothing deviant about 24-year-old women dressed like high school cheerleaders. That’s practically the bread and butter of the entire porn industry which I probably shouldn’t be using as an example in this case. Let’s try another approach: At least boys are looking at these women in a heterosexual manner instead of studying evolution like a pack of homosexuals. Amirite? High five me, Jesus.

I kind of understand the point where people are saying its a pedophilia. Don't get me wrong those chicks look ridiculously hot and are obviously well above being 'of age', but I can see how a parent that watches a 'family' show like Glee could be a bit dismayed that they are posing the way they do.

Remember that famous scene with Pheobe Cates in Fast Times at Ridgemont High -- yeah, that one. Guess what, pedophile -- she was playing a HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT in that film!

Hmm. Then I guess being married to a twenty-one year old makes me a pedophile.

Nuke the planet from orbit, only way to be sure, yadda yadda yadda.

Seriously, that may be our only solution when it comes to these morans.

I understand it, but I don't agree with it. People need to lighten up and stop being so puritanical in regards to sexuality.

I'd hate to see what the article writers would say about Ariel Rebel if she were more mainstream.

Didn't Glee just have an episode where one of the characters dresses up like Britney Spears? And aren't they doing a Rocky Horror episode? Seems to me like Glee is doing a perfectly good job of sexualizing these people without GQ's help.

Also, these parents are idiots, but that in no way surprises me.

Yes, in said Britney episode a Jewish kid was also caught masturbating to a video of Rachel in a skimpy outfit, and in the latest episode Brittany and Santana had a little lesbian make out session on a bed.

Especially since it's one of the most-overtly sexual shows on the block.

It's not pedophilia, it might be wanting to contribute to the delinquency of a minor. If a magazine is going to control your kids, you never really had control over them to begin with. The parent groups need to simmer down.

Back in 1990, my uncle, who was 41, married a woman who was 19. It was awkward....

The last thing we need to do in this country is to get high schoolers thinking about sex. Stop this filth now!

Re: Do you find people in their twenties attractive? Then you are a PEDOPHILE!

The PTC is yet another group of right-wing media whores who have appointed themselves defenders of our culture against the rampant indecency and anti-Christian bias that they see lurking around every corner. They have the right to be annoying, but I don't think we need to pay attention every time they throw a tantrum. Their baseline is "outraged".

On the other hand: the age argument is pretty moronic. If you publish photos of a model dressed up as a young girl, why does her actual age matter? You're clearly trying to appeal to those who like to look at young girls. I don't see how "Gotcha! She's actually older than you think!" dispels that.

If you're beating off to a photo of Emmanuel Lewis... you may be a pedophile. Does it matter that Lewis happened to be 20 when that particular photo was taken?
