I have to chuckle when I see this picture, not just because the guy facing the camera is grotesque, but because my own son grew up in the Irvine school district, which is a very academically oriented district, especially in north Irvine (where we lived) and south Irvine, both predominantly Asian neighborhoods, and if an Irvine kid texted home a photo like this, there’d be a lynch mob in the district office by 3 p.m. the same day.
The question on everyone’s lips would be “How is a drag show in a school gymnasium going to help my child get into a top university? Where does this go on the college application?”
We all have our little peccadillos, sexual and otherwise. How exhibiting certain of these (though not others), e.g., cross-dressing, not only in public but in schools became a thing that people do is a mystery to me.
Speaking of peccadillos, the actor David Carradine, who apparently died of autoerotic asphyxiation, was found wearing a wig and fishnet, with red women’s lingerie found nearby. There is some correlation between cross-dressing and autoerotic asphyxiation, as also seen in this case and this case and others.
Coming soon to a school gymnasium near you!
