James Franco in Drag Offends Me

James Franco in Drag

Here’s James Franco on the cover of Candy, the first magazine by and for the she-man/man-she crowd, which makes absolutely no sense to me. The James Franco part, I mean. Clearly, he’s not a transvestite, so he’s basically just playing dress-up to get his mug on a magazine. How is that any different from the time I wore black-face and tried to get on the cover of Essence? Is it because I kept saying, “You be trippin’,” as they were tossing me out? That’s racism.

  1. The Real TAB

    First

    • Da troooooooooooof

      Bout’ time a good lookin’ female is on this site! There hasn’t been any fap material in here for years!

      • Da Crabby One

        This is hotter than most of the women out there nowadays. Sad but oh so true.

      • gaag

        Yeah! Beautiful woman indeed, Is so sad that James Franco is prettier than Snooki and that She BEAST coco, Also he is better looking than Lindsay Courtney love Madonna, well the whole cast of jershey Shore WHAT THE F*CK IS WRONG WITH women these days?!!!!!!
        O_o
        when I get aroused by a guy in drag more than by real women, we have a problem here,
        specially those inviting red lips, I would love to slowly unzip my pants, hold that chin, open that mouth, those inviting lips, then slowly introduce my member into his throat, (Bonus if my penis ends up red from the lipstick)
        then I would love to orgasm in his chest, and then eat it

    I can’t even believe that is really him. Wow. Not surprised, but just… wow. They did a good job.

  3. Lol sup tab. Pickin up where u left off i see.

    Welp i like franco from pineapple express so ill cut him a break. Am a major stoner myself.. Plus im still on my first coffee. Plus i just did my gay comment for the day on the prev post. But duuude what the fuck…….

    Drag is NEVER cool. Fuck monty python for it. Fuck robin williams, dusin hoffman, rue paul.. Shit gives me nitemares awake. If u wanna be cool try monkeys in human clothes. In fact with all the fuckin remakes out there how come not one motherfucker thought of redoing lance link.. Franco wouldnt even need makeup for that..

    • Jizz Cockster

      I’d bet that Franco has tasted jizz on a few occasions. He always looks like he’s got some inner demons fighting in his mind and shit.

    • It probably betrays my age, but I think that some of the funniest bits of comedy I’ve ever seen were Monty Python skits done in drag. The “ladies garden club reenactment of the battle of Pearl Harbor” (that may not be the EXACT title, but it’s close) still makes me laugh to the point of pain.
      I dunno who this chump is….thought it was another Kardashian for a moment.

    • Missy

      You’re never cool.

    • Eric

      Drag is actually one of the coolest things ever, although the Kids in the Hall did it better than Monty Python. Furthermore, James Franco is one of the hottest people around no matter how he’s dressed. I only wish they’d done this photoshoot when his hair was long for Pineapple Express.

  4. Jizz Cockster

    fuck all those goddamn Nathan Lane muthers out there. Stay in the basement, closet, San Francisco, wherethefuckever, just stay the fuck outta my line of sight.

  5. Pussy Galore

    Hmmmm. For some odd reason “Goodbye Horses” by Q Lazzarus keeps playing in my head when I look at this picture.

    I don’t understand the obsession some folks (straight no less!) have with drag queens.

    I mean, I’ve known many men and women, straight, who’ve asked me if I’d like to go to the local drag shows over the years. I always decline as I have zero interest, outside of some film like “Some Like It Hot”, in seeing guys pretend they’re women when women don’t even act that weirdly femmy.

    Outside of going to mock them, which would likely result in a mass riot against me by the audience, why would anyone besides gay folk be interested in watching guys sashaying around in too much makeup, wigs, dresses and high heels whilst babbling in falsetto?

    I don’t have interest in going to see female het strippers, paying out huge bucks for nothing and expensive soda (in my state no alkeehawl allowed in strip clubs). Why waste the bucks on something you can’t have? To easy to pick up some random babe in a bar where one can have a few drinks.

    What kind of minds think drag shows are really cool, man?

    • Eric

      I don’t understand what gets all these crybabies so upset about drag. Does it really threaten your sexuality that much?

  7. meat

    He looks like Annie Lennox

  8. Kinda frightening.
    Kinda looks like Marlene Dietrich.
    Kinda still better than Madonna.

  9. fester

    Did he have to wax his Hairy Osborn? Well no, but he did it anyway.

    You go, Goblin Girl!

  10. jkhjkh

    lol hes an ugly chick

  11. me

    this site sucks

  12. urmomma

    ^^secret boner happened

  13. IKE

    Odd and disturbing, James.

  14. Who? And Ewe!!!

    I don’t get the whole obsession with Drag queens either. Put a man in a dress and it’s still a man. If it has a penis it’s still a man. Put make up on him and it’s a man who looks like an ugly woman.

    Who is James Franco again?

  15. Bunny Foofoo

    holy shiite, i thought it was a picture of madonna.

  16. sundaridamour

    I was thinking Glenn Close…

  17. The thing I’ve always wondered about transvestites and drag queens is where exactly do they get their idea of what a woman looks/acts like from. Most of them seem to think ballroom gowns, huge wigs, and acting like an asshole is feminine.

  18. Francesca

    i love you for saying that

  19. wordup

    Love this.

  20. Bekkah

    Why does such a good looking man want to dress up as a women? Please say it isn’t so….

    BTW – anyone wondering WHO James Franco is – he’s the guy who played Peter Parkers best friend (Harry) in the most recent Spiderman movies. I had the biggest thing for him when those movies came out…now when I look into those puppy dog eyes, this is what I’ll see…..

  21. Burke, Esq.

    Watch..in about 3 years he’ll come strollin’ out of the closet just like Ricky Martin did! Only it took him like 20 to come out, but yet everyone and his Mom knew he was gay.

    Just be who you are and stop pretending.

    “I don’t understand the obsession some folks (straight no less!) have with drag queens. What’s the fascination?

    Nothing against gay folk and straight folks who are into this. I’ve just never understood the whole appeal of a show. Seems pretty fuckin’ stupid to me.

      Weird.

      I hadn’t realized I’d already posted this this morning. How could that be? It wasn’t 4:20.

      Wow….I need to shave the cabbage now.

  23. McShez

    YUM. I would so love to smear my lipstick against his.

  24. Willy Wonka

    I’m not gay, but I’d let him go balls deep in my ass!

  25. Burt

    All that makeup makes him look cheap. ;)

  26. Burt

    “which makes absolutely no sense to me. The James Franco part, I mean. ”

    It’s not that difficult to understand. He’s an actor playing a role and he wants publicity (for himself and possibly for the magazine).

  27. Ash Bones

    I think he’s trying to tell us something.

  28. gigi

    HOT…. any shape or form, Mr. DeFranco… and of course you guys see the masculine jaw right? it can be subtle, especially to some of you non-observant morons, no matter what any tranny does, if they don’t surgically shave that jaw down, they’ll never-ever *truly* pass– the whole Adams Apple rule is passe.

  29. :(

    shouldn’t have clicked the link, my brain will forever be haunted by this :( (had the hugest crush on him in the spiderman movies. *sigh*)

    It will never cease to amaze me, how people could be so offended by a man in drag. Is it really that threatening to your sexuality? Are you afraid a tranny will trip on her platform thigh-highs and penatrate you? Any self-respecting tranny will tell you, “I’ve NEVER tripped in heels!” Also, why is it always fat, balding men who are more the comfortable in sweats and Nike’s that think they’re gonna get butt raped. Women don’t want you. Why on earth would a guy in drag want you? The only thing a guy in drag (straight or gay) is guilty of is not being boring.

    That being said… I wish I could have been in on this shoot. He’s an attractive guy and he would have made an attractive woman. Why on earth did they make him look like he stepped out of a Robert Palmer video? Or even worse, one of those annoying B/W paintings from the 80′s with the red lips. I hated those paintings back then, and no fashionista in the world will ever make that style cool again.
