Ever wonder how someone can take an editorial examination of 12 Years A Slave and find a way to make it about gay sex? If so, look no further than sex-symbol, student, and perennial pseudo-gay attention whore James Franco to lead you to the north star.

In his Vice magazine editorial, Franco christens the large penis-cursed Michael Fassbender “Fassy-B” (not as good as Dlisted’s nickname “Assbender,” but close), sidesteps surefire Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor to declare that Fassy-B owns the film, and takes the opportunity to slam both him and director Steve McQueen for their depiction of gay sex in their previous collaboration, 2011′s Shame.

Franco takes offense to the movie’s depiction of gay sex as the final marker of the depth of the sex addiction of Fassy-B’s character in the movie.  Of it, he says:

“And that scene where he’s at his lowest point and wants to fuck and goes into a gay club, and it’s depicted like the seventh level of hell… I mean, it goes back to the horrible representations of gays in the ’70s, where the gay club is meant to signify everything dark and depraved. Then the guy gets a minor blowjob, from, Oh no, a man! The horror!”

The quote leads one to wonder how Franco would define a “major” blowjob, but the truth is that depictions of gay sex in the 70′s is actually a subject Franco is well-versed in.  Last year, he co-directed a short docudrama called Interior. Leather Bar that was intended to fill in the gap between 40 minutes of footage that was allegedly cut from the homophobic 1980 thriller Cruising, which centered around a serial killer targeting gay men who frequented leather bars in New York City.

So now that he’s slammed outside depictions of gay sex, made his own kinda gay semi documentary, and made out with a guy to troll gossip bloggers, the natural evolution is:  a gay Kim Kardashian-style sex tape?  We’re sure the co-starring offers would be rolling in…
