British TV Special Features LGBT Movement of 'Human Pups'
Pup play seems rather innocuous, but it is linked to a denial of fundamental truths about human nature. It is one thing to pretend to be a dog, as children dress up or run around and play, but this is something else.
Despite the emphasis on feeling "natural," this is very unnatural. Dogs do not wear rubber and Lycra, and humans walking on their hands and knees feels primitive for a reason.
Perhaps most importantly, however, this movement shares something in common with both transgenderism and the freakish unnatural urges that drove one man to transform himself into a dragon lady. By all standards, getting your teeth and ears removed, your nose modified, horn implants, and a forked tongue is extreme behavior, but it is a logical conclusion from the transgender ideology.
Denying biological reality in order to facilitate desires (no matter how deeply felt) to become a member of the opposite sex or a dragon or a puppy is dangerous. While it may be cathartic and even exhilarating to become something you are not, the transition is never complete. Even a man who has surgery to become a woman still has male DNA, for instance.
This is one reason why "rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery," according to the most comprehensive study on transgenderism -- done in Sweden over a thirty-year period. "Persons with transsexualism, after sex reassignment, have considerably higher risks for mortality, suicidal behavior, and psychiatric morbidity than the general population." This suggests that "sex reassignment, although alleviating gender dysphoria, may not suffice as treatment for transsexualism."
For this and other reasons, the American College of Pediatricians called the practice of teaching children that gender is fluid and encouraging them to transition "child abuse." Indeed, for what other issue would parents accept an increasing risk of cancer and suicide?
As the Bible teaches, humanity is unique -- made in the image of God, male and female. Denying these facts to encourage strange dreams of becoming the opposite sex, a dragon, or a puppy is the same thing as rejecting the biblical view of human nature. But it is more than that -- it is also desecrating the the image of God.
By rejecting the way God made us, we deny the goodness of His creation in us. As Christians, our very bodies are to be temples of God. Transgenderism and trans-speciesism not only claim that God messed up when He created us -- they also do hard physical damage to a holy temple.
Finally, the link between pup play and homosexuality is bothersome. The fact that Tom had to leave his fiancee and to enter into a homosexual relationship where he feels no love -- just to encourage this method of play -- should scare people. Even those who accept homosexuality do not normally encourage straight people to become gay.
That said, Christians should love and reach out to everyone, not forgetting that we ourselves are sinners. No one is beyond redemption, and it is our duty to present the solution to the world's woes. The Bible promises a new heaven and a new earth, and that our physical bodies will be renewed and transformed, as Jesus' body was -- without sickness and fatigue. It will still be the same body, but eternal and glorious. Now that's a transition we can all look forward to.
