The Movingon folks have had some interesting discussions about Obtherion and his potential as a Vandari mascot. One of the Movingon participants shared this link to a PR shot of a Family group called the BVM Boys:
If this isn't homoerotic, I'm not worthy of my official GBLT membership card and complementary toaster oven. How about that text, "There is nothing covered that will not be revealed"--? If I didn't know the context of this pic, I'd think it was a coming out statement for a pop-fag band.
The video of this group shows them prancing around with hankies tied around their heads:
Yeah, they got a girl audience, but give me a break. Many of the Chippendales are gay. Sorry girls, but what passes as a little heterosexual role reversal is just another boring night on the job for about half of da boyz.
I honestly think Obtherion was conjured up in response to what's actually going on among some of the Family youth right now.
