- This troper finds, with great horror and thus reluctance to post it, that it would probably apply to Armstrong as well. He has pink sparkles coming out of his head and is obsessed with muscles, and basically acts like an extra from a Cho Aniki game.
How is Armstrong being gay horrible? As Our Lord Kamina-sama
taught us, "Manly combining is a beautiful thing
!" *flexes* *sparkles*
Ouroboros: I always interpreted Armstrong as representing those British boxers/weight lifters from back in the early twentieth century more than as a representation of the Hard Gay cliches of Japan. His sexuality hasn't been touched on as well.
That's not to say he isn't, but until a Word of Gay
or concrete proof is provided in story, I think he shouldn't be listed as an example.
: To whoever put that image up there, thank you for making my eyes retreat to the back of my head out of sheer horror. That image is going to haunt my dreams tonight.
Leaper: My eyes! MY BRAIN! AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
: AAAAAAYUGGGUGHGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!! PUT THE OLD IMAGE BACK! D:
: I need to cauterize my brain. Bleach doesn't cut it.
: The original image can be found here.
- ThisMaleTroper: finds himself heartily agreeing. It's the nipples that do it for him, something a tad less gaudy pink next time perhaps, the colour seems to match the genitalia of the occaisional bit of hentai that would sneak past the Google safe search when he was younger, creating much the same visceral disgust.
