PTC Criticizes Glee, The Vampire Diaries for Sexualized Content

at . Comments

It's safe to say the Parents Television Council does not like Glee and The Vampire Diaries as much as TV Fanatic does.

In a new report that analyzed the sexual content of the top 25 broadcast network shows among teenagers, the PTC cited these popular programs as showing an "eagerness to not only objectify and fetishize young girls, but to sexualize them in such a way that real teens are led to believe their sole value comes from their sexuality."

We have a feeling most women out there would love to be "sexualized" by Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley.

"TV executives have made it their business to profit off of programs that depict teen girls blissfully being sexualized by casual partners," said PTC President Tim Winter.

Other shows that came under fire in the report include Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
