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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
