So, is there a good reason why Otis in Barnyard has a guy's voice but is a girl cow? Or is there some insane freakish thing out there where people don't know that that boy cows don't have udders?

ETA: Okay, Barnyard is one creepy animated film. I will have nightmares about mad gender confused livestock for weeks.

I'm sure they had some kind of "Think of the children" reason for such an obvious fuck up.

But...it's horrific! And right there in your face all the time: they're giant udders. Couldn't they just have done a Ken not given him anything down there?

In the series, they actually make references to milking him.

...

OH GOD NOW I HAVE TO WONDER WHAT THEY WERE MILKING FROM HIM.

Oh, it gets better! There was one episode where he was bullied by a duck when he was a CALF and the duck milked him.

(Yes, I have way too much time on my hands and nothing better to watch.)

There is so much wrong in that one sentence I don't even know where to begin. DON'T THEY KNOW THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD GET THEIR INFORMATION FROM TV?

Pfft, the children are too DUMB to get all the inappropriate jokes, obviously.

Isn't it weird? My husband and I had a long, ranty conversation about this when we watched it.

They're just so huge, too. Like uber-udders. And as he stands upright all the time they're always in your face.

I have this vision of millions of kids watching this being madly confused about what cows' udders actually do.

So was it bad for me to tell my three-year-old son that Otis is a pre-operative tranny?

Hee!

No, you probably saved him from a life time of horrific misunderstanding about livestock.

I absolutely agree, this was the way to go.

OMG, I remember seeing some trailer for it and being horrified about that. It then evolved into an extremely disturbing
discussion with my mom about it.

*shudders*

I don't know why I should find this more inherently strange than cows talking, but I do. IT'S HUGE. IT'S WRONG. AND IT SORT OF WOBBLES IN A GENDER MESSED UP WAY.
