Is Otis misshapen by BGH or steroids?

Hermaphrodite bull OTIS of Back to the Barnyard
I’m not sure that’s an udder fastened like a diaphragm over the groin of computer animation’s favorite self-effacing alpha bull. While some may speculate that Back to the Barnyard is trying to normalize hermaphrodites in macho garb, a rugged outdoor transvestite perhaps like Eddie Izzard’s mannish executive transvestite. I rather think those are fat man boobs channeled from the King of Queens which come of human absorption of BGH, Bovine Growth Hormone, used for dairy cows, and I guess, our man cow Otis.

Not really. I think the rubber contraption is actually capping what would otherwise be prominent on a barnyard bull. And thus it is front and center, pink, thrust forward, often conspicuous by being just outside the frame, and what is it? A nubbly flesh colored bit of nothing. Otis, despite his gruff voice, is a eunuch, front and center, like Family Guy, Homer, Fred Flintstone and all of the South Park parents. Emasculated fathers, fatherhood figures without authority, least of all ownership, and with nothing on the fake masculine stereotypes of Hollywood and armed services commercials.

    The male parts have always been offensive, a real shame. but among artists at home, people who call themselves furries, have been putting the blighted parts back where they belong.

    The fellow above is a prime example of how ashamed, or more likely, ignorant people are of the male form. you could argue that it’s just a cartoon, but why are the male parts routinely lopped off?

    Imagine if our society thought noses were sinful and had to be covered or, not drawn on cartoon characters… no more sniffing out crime for Scooby doo, that could get you jailed.

    We’re really cut off from nature these days, I notice when I go to an agricultural show, that many people couldn’t tell the difference between a cow and a bull.

    Bulls are routinely called “Cows” these days, and udders are wrongly called “utters” on websites and drawn with five, six seven or even eight teats.

    I’m sick of our stupid “culture” being offended by parts of the body we’ve all naturally been given, especially while our screens are flooded by acts of violence which I feel is far worse.

    I’m especially surprised by peoples offence at the sight of a simple nipple, a poor inoffensive little bump which we all have, what’s wrong with people?

    As for cartoon characters, I’m not alone when it comes to thinking that boys should be allowed to be boys, complete and whole.

    A group of artists who collectively call themselves Furries are putting the bits back where they belong, it won’t be too long before we’ll be seeing full feature films by these people.

    Kids don’t freak out about genitalia, until adults and our culture forces the issue down their throats until shame sets in.
