Last night, "Glee" reran "Hairography."
I don't have to comment too much about the episode because we've already seen it. The deaf choir 'Imagines' a world without hairography. Sue leaks the New Directions set list for sectionals. Quinn considers raising her baby with Puck, but decides to give her up when she catches Puck 'sexting' Santana. Kurt transforms Rachel into a "sad clown hooker" to sabotage her chances with Finn, but they both realize that he still loves Quinn (sad wave).
Somewhere in juvie, Puck is probably hooking up with a relapsed Jane Addams girl.
Meanwhile, "Glee" cast members Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, and Cory Monteith have caused quite a buzz with some racy GQ photos. In these GQ photos, Lea Michele and Dianna Agron don outfits that appeal to men's school girl fetishes including knee-highs, school girl minis, and lollipops. Lea Michele is the more provocatively dressed of the women, wearing panties in some of the photos while Dianna Agron is at least wearing skirts.
Somewhere at a celibacy club meeting, Quinn is saying, "God bless the pervs who invented these skirts."
Columnists such asEntertainment Weekly's Jennifer Armstrong argue that "Glee" is 'sexing' it up too much with these GQ photos. "So why "Glee's" strain to prove to GQ's target demo of straight white men that it's sexy? So sexy, apparently, it could become soft porn (or at least a hair metal video) at any second."
She also observes that while the girls are scantily clad, Cory Monteith is fully clothed in sweaters and cardigans.
Various bloggers at CNN claim that "Glee's" GQ photo shoot objectified women and there were double standards because Monteith had been fully dressed.
The EW writer makes a valid point about the double standard, and there is one remedy for this--more pictures of scantily clad "Glee" men. If Lea Michele and Dianna Agron are going to take it off for GQ, then I want my eye candy too. I want to see shirtless Matthew Morrison and Mark Salling in my magazines.
"Glee's" 'Duets' episode was a start (with shots of Chord Overstreet in a towel). Now how about throwing in some more shots of Mike Chang and his abs?
Sure Lea Michele and Dianna Agron are provocatively dressed, but who am I to judge them? Besides, "Glee's" GQ photos come just before Halloween, and to quote "Mean Girls," "Halloween is the one night of the year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girl can say anything about it."
