  • I think its inappropriate. Its not in a magazine you have to be an adult to buy, but in one anyone can get. Plus, while these young actors may be of age, they play high school kids, and were photographed as over sexualized high school girls. I don't think it should have been allowed.

  • If my kid is old enough to watch that show, he/she is old enough to see those pictures. It's not a show for small children. It's stupid for parents to let their kids watch Glee and be pissed about that picture.

  • I think it isn't a magazine intended for children, so why do people have their panties in a bundle? On the cover of Teen Beat (does that even still exist :P) yes... GQ... nope

  • I don't see a whole lot of difference with the Brittney Spears video when she was what... 16? It's no big deal to me.

  • My personal view on the whole "High School" image issue.

    They may "Portray" high school girls on tv. However. They are not high school girls. Expecting 20 something year old women to live like high school teenagers just because of a role they play on tv is ridiculous in my opinion. They have lives to lead, and I'm sure most of them would like a career after Glee's 15minutes are upso other forms of exposure is most likely needed in order to expand their career opportunities while the iron is hot.

    A small child, wouldn't be looking at/reading MAXIM anyway. The only way they would even know about it, is due to someone around them making a big deal about this. Parents making bigger issues out of these things than need be sometimes. A small child would never even know about this, if it weren't for Parents choosing to make an issue of it and splash it all over the media just to get some faux outcry/outrage over it.

  • Small children (which Glee is not geared towards anyway) would not "know" about these pics if such a big deal weren't being made about them. If parents weren't making such a stink about the pics, which is what is causing this faux issue to be all over the news to begin with, then small children would never even know about them.

    Small children do not generally read GQ. I dare say, many if not most do not even know what GQ is. And those who do know about it because of their parents most likely.

    If a child see's this GQ cover ( a child who watched Glee) and they ask questions about it. Then the Parents should take that opportunity to explain to the child that these people are actors, they portray a character on TV Nothing more nothing less. They are not the character, they do not live like the character.etc They are real people, who live real lives, and do other things in that life than just like us, good things & Bad alike
