A long time ago I read a Bible, flipping though it looking for all mentions of wolves and dogs (I was working on a story about a religious werewolf at the time), and I remember coming across a story about a man meeting an angel. It said the man saw a young, handsome guy (the angel) and “followed the dog”.
I didn’t get it at the time. Why did they call the angel a dog?
Many years later I learned that “dog” is Biblical slang for a common male prostitute, so apparently the angel was posing as, well, a male prostitute for some reason.
I can for the life of me not remember in which book and I’ve tried searching for it but haven’t been able to find it. I definitely remember reading it though because it stuck out as being weird to me at the time.
Also, because I’m terrible I used Medieval angel art as inspiration for this.
EDIT: Angels being sexless is a fairly new idea. In the Bible they are definitely men with dicks. That’s where nephilim comes from
Is that the origin of some gay men calling each other bitches?
