Quiz: Which Sad Song With a Dog Motif Are You?

Do you ever feel pathetic and disgusting in your unending loyalty? Do you feel an incessant need to be praised? Do you lash out in fearful aggression when backed into a corner? Then the dog motif may be for you! This craze is currently sweeping queer meme circles, but has been an oft-used resource in art (especially queer art) for much, much longer. The animalistic tension of the dog motif may be so attractive to queers who live in a world where they feel they don’t belong—domesticated against their wildness, longing to break free of it, but also longing to be cared for by a gentler, more commanding hand. Whatever the reason you (yes, you) personally may be invested, this quiz is here to tell you definitively which beloved lesbian track most exemplifies you and your connection to this classic allegory.

    • my partner got a Hozier song apparently all about how horny my partner is… while they currently xplore their asexuality 😂
      I got The Antlers, all about making the hard choice to end suffering.
      👀 not us starting couples therapy last week!

  1. Me & My Dog? I’ve never heard of it before. I do like the idea of looking out a spaceship window with an adorable pup by my side (assuming a sci-fi spaceship with artificial gravity so there’s less to worry about with the pup shedding), though.
