I remember back in the day I saw this episode of Phil Donahue—I know I’m telling my age here, but I *was* just a wee bairn at the time—and they were showcasing adults who fetishize acting like infants. Grown men, all hairy and fat, wearing diapers, lying on the floor kicking and screaming and flailing about, pretending to be babies. And I remember thinking, even as a child, GOOD GOD, where is the DIGNITY?!? I’ve also ruffled some feathers and received some angry emails for making fun of Furries. Some of our Furry fans were kind enough to correct me that Furries and “Yiffers” are not necessarily the same thing. It is the Yiffers who are all pervy and sketchy. Thus I will no longer make fun of Furries, only Yiffers. And Bronies. Always Bronies.
What about Kaz James, the “Human Pup”? He eats out of a dog bowl and wears a dog costume. He greets people by barking at them. He sometimes bites people. “I didn’t ever feel like a human[;] I always felt like a dog that was really out of place…I never really had a name for it[;] being a pup wasn’t a thing I knew about. When I met other people like me I felt I could be myself.” Thanks to the good ol’ Internet, the human pups of the world can now find each other. Bloody hell.
Okay, look, as long as you aren’t hurting anybody else, hurting animals, or damaging the environment, do whatever the hell you want. That’s my philosophy. But he’d better be careful whom he bites. Not everybody is into that.
