The Movie "Show Dogs" Contains Scenes That "Groom Children for Sexual Abuse"

99

The PG movie Show Dogs contains scenes of "unwanted genital touching" on a talking dog who is told to "go to a zen place". 

Show Dogs is a family comedy about the unlikely pairing of a human detective (voiced by Will Arnett) and his partner Max (voiced by Ludacris), a talking dog who goes undercover at a dog show to solve a case.

As if this premise wasn't horrible enough, the movie contains bizarre scenes where the dog protagonist has to allow a stranger to grope his genitals in order to complete his mission. According to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) these scenes send "a troubling message that grooms children for sexual abuse".

Blogger Terina Maldonado describes the problematic scenes:

"As part of any dog show, contestants are judged on their abilities and physical attributes. One part, in particular, is the inspection of the dog's private parts. Because Max is new to the competition, he also is new to the inspection of a dog’s private parts.

Since the inspection of the private parts will happen in the finals, Frank touches Max’s private parts to get him use to it. Of course, Max doesn’t like it and snaps at Frank for him to stop. Max is then told by the former champion, who has been through the process before, that he needs to go to his ‘zen place’ while it happens so he can get through it. More attempts are made by Frank to touch Max’s private parts, but Max is still having trouble letting it happen and keeps snapping at him.

The day of the finals come and if Max doesn’t let his private parts be touched, he may lose the competition and any hope of finding the kidnapped panda. It all rests on his ability to let someone touch his private parts. The judge’s hands slowly reach behind Max and he goes to his ‘zen place,’ He’s flying through the sky, dancing with his partner, there are fireworks and flowers-everything is great-all while someone is touching his private parts."

The "zen place" scene - where Max dances in the sky while he's being groped - alludes to dissociation. Some of the most sadistic practices known to man (notably Monarch Programming) involve subjecting children to trauma in order to cause dissociation, rendering them extremely vulnerable and suggestible. These scenes appear to normalize this horrific process used by child abusers.

Dawn Hawkins, the executive director of the NCOSE stated that her organization objects to "multiple scenes where a dog character must have its private parts inspected, in the course of which the dog is uncomfortable and wants to stop but is told to go to a ‘zen place’."

The NCOSE statement also adds:

"The dog is rewarded with advancing to the final round of the dog show after passing this barrier. Disturbingly, these are similar tactics child abusers use when grooming children: telling them to pretend they are somewhere else and that they will get a reward for withstanding their discomfort.

Children’s movies must be held to a higher standard, and must teach children bodily autonomy, the ability to say ‘no’ and safety – not confusing messages endorsing unwanted genital touching."

The NCOSE asked the production company Global Road Entertainment to edit out the problematic scenes. In a statement to CNN, the company defended the movie:

“The dog show judging in this film is depicted completely accurately as done at shows around the world, and was performed by professional and highly respected dog show judges. Global Road Entertainment and the film-makers are saddened and apologize to any parent who feels the scene sends a message other than a comedic moment in the film, with no hidden or ulterior meaning, but respect their right to react to any piece of content.”

Although it is technically correct that dogs have their genitals inspected in actual dog shows, Show Dogs was never meant to be a fully accurate documentary about the world of dog shows. It is a children's movie featuring a talking dog who feels human emotions. The viewers are meant to identify with the protagonist and this protagonist apparently needs to be groped in order to resolve the story.

Max Botkin, one of the chief writers of the movie, denied writing any of these scenes, claiming that the movie was "heavily rewritten by 13 other writers", 12 of whom are uncredited. He added that he "didn’t get to see the film until it was in its final stage of completion and had zero say in creative choices".

In a statement Botkin wrote:

"I absolutely condemn any suggestion or act of non-consensual touching in any form, as well as disassociation as a coping mechanism for abuse of any kind. I understand and EMPATHIZE with the parents’ and groups’ concerns regarding the message the movie may impart."

Some critics brushed over the controversy, believing that the movie was meant to entertain children who love potty jokes.

"Max’s transformation necessitates getting his rear end waxed and learning to stay completely still when his private parts are inspected.

Along with a blast of canine flatulence, those bits are aimed squarely at preschool viewers who still think bathroom and crotch jokes are the apex of hilarity".
- Variety, Film Review: ‘Show Dogs’

These scenes could indeed be interpreted as nothing more than innocent potty jokes. However, there is one unavoidable fact that we must consider: Hollywood is infested with child predators who actively seek out vulnerable children in order to groom them for systematic abuse. The documentary An Open Secret explains this disgusting process in great detail (watch it here). Knowing this fact, it is difficult not to be troubled by this Hollywood movie turning a known grooming process into a joke.

I love this site, but could you do one about the royal wedding, please?

I'm waiting for the royal wedding too!

What about it? What did you see?

I feel like it's not as much what is SEEN, but more about how it's highly publicized and attention is taken away from issues that are actually important to know about like the horrifying shooting of a high school just days earlier :/

Joe

but I mean also, it's pretty ritualistic seeming isn't it? every royal wedding is highly publicized from the engagement on, and it's seen and heard about everywhere, doesn't it seem so? a lot of my friends have brought it up (usually also questioning why it's so publicized) and it's spoken about in newspapers in great detail. the personal lives of the non-royals are highly emphasized too it seems

Yes it's a seasonal CULT and we should all avoid "watching it" and engaging with them I mean there are women who believe these princes' and princesses are what they are told they are when they aren't, and they only put on a big show to prove the sheeple is still there applauding and what not, sigh it's sad state of the world still looking after them in any way!!

The Royal Family are the highest ups as far as you can get regarding illumanati. That is where the Beast of Revelation will come from

I heard the same. Some say it's william. These Germans ruling England and no one speaks a word against them. The queen was part of the start of slavery and owns trillions of dollars. She could end poverty if she wanted to. I also think people talking about meghan being fake but the kate and William show was the fakest. Will didn't even get a ring and no one said anything about it. So basically he can do what he wants and she will keep getting pregnant.

Kate recently wore a dress from Rosemary's Baby while unveiling her newborn son. I got a very Cain and Abel feel off the whole thing.

Or we could ignore it and save hours of our lives.
For example you could : Read up on ingredients in your food and the laws in your country that are changed, to make ''genetically changed yeast excretion'' being labelled Natural Aroma's. Those are put in so-called organic food as well nowadays!
Or compare pictures of blue skies in 1980 or 2002 with 2018, and guess what colour pastel-light-baby-blue our sky will be tomorrow. (Or: will it rain again, or stay clear for longer than 3 days straight again, like it used to be in summers in the 70's?)

Totally agree DDd. Where I live I'm constantly looking up at the sky and thinking "how can nobody notice this??" I grew up in the 70's and 80's. I know what real clouds, and the sky - uncontaminated - looks like. It seems people are just too distracted to notice.

Like all the royal weddings and so many s***s that distract people to think about the horrors.

Main thing they are trans gender abused and enslaved people all of them! sigh! and are ultimately used for distraction because the world needs to be "entertained" and fed w their abominations if people don't stop watching their every move we can move on can't we?

The wedding ceremony took place in a freemason temple. Looked like an initiation. The weather, as expected, was great. So they can use haarp and chemtrails to generate nice weather, too, if they really want to. In some scenes I thought Harry looked as if he was forced to marry her. Also in some scenes I had the impression she was his handler (MKUltra, Monarch, ...). Grandpa Philip looked like he needed a new virgin blood infusion soon. (So he looked like all the others with the same facial expression, like Bill Clinton, George Soros, George Bush sr., Rockefeller.) On German TV they were talking about this "interracial" wedding. Don't remember where I read it, but as far as I remember she doesn't identify as black, doesn't have any black friends, and was raised rather J..ish than Inglewood style... So that whole thing is only show. Also, read somewhere else that she comes from the same bloodline, cause they never let outsiders in. Also, since he's the child of the equestrian coach not prince Dumbo, they wouldn't care who he marries, especially since his mom is dead, so she can't decide he should be king. Some guests like that spice… Read more »

A lot of the symbolism in the Royal Wedding has to do with the Church that was chosen. Meghan in white (the symbol of the "Virgin") enters the Church on the WEST side and walks down the section of the aisle known as "The Nave" by herself, with the children behind her. She is heading EAST which is the destination of "new ideas and Illumination" in pagan traditions. Then when she gets to the more narrow section of the Church (the throat or "neck" of the aisle, symbolically) where the architecture truly "tightens up," she is met by Charles who walks her to "The High Altar". The High Altar is the "Head" of the Church or the Crown Chakra, as many Churches in Europe were built to symbolize the human body and Chakra system that follows along the spine of the human body. Hermetic texts explain this more thoroughly. The Choir is also seated in this area and some believe that the tones they emit from their singing influence the "vibration" of the Ritual (the Wedding), just like chanting at a Black Mass adds to the "Magick" being performed. As you might have noticed, the truly "important" guests were seated… Read more »

Hi Jane, really interesting insight. I did not know churches were set up to follow the chakras. Makes a lot of sense, though, knowing what these people believe. The checkerboard floor representing duality of course is ever-present in their ritualistic places. Why do you think they had Meghan walk to the church by herself, contrasted with Kate who was guided into the church by a whole team of people? Is that to show where she ranks in the pecking order?

Kid you not, there is a woman in my workplace that said watching the royal wedding and seeing all black celebrities and talking about it with my other coworkers was "giving her chills". And she "loves" harry and megan's love story. It's sad that people are so asleep. But it's up to us, being "awake", to help them see, if the Most High wills it.

I always wonder when people tell me they "feel chills" about something that is either mundane or "not what it seems", what those "chills" actually "mean." I've heard this at gatherings where there was some supposed "guru" who had "all the answers" (but he/she really did NOT) and everyone there is babbling about how the hair on their arms is raised up. "Chills." Could it be their own body trying to "tell" them something???

Could be. I know sometimes people can feel chills when they see something moving and awe-inspiring...and other times when they're scared. In this case (maybe) she is deceived that what she's seeing/hearing is so moving that she's getting chills. That could be the reason but I honestly don't know. What got me was the fact that she said just "talking" about the wedding was giving her chills! And she kept saying it. Just thought that was so weird.

Jane

I can understand chills from seeing something moving for sure. But, yes, "talking about the wedding" should not give anyone chills. She sounds like someone who needs to live her life *through* others. And whose "chill meter" is broken or overworked.

Might we all ignore that statement of ''seeing all black celebrities and talking about it giving chills'' ? The level of humanness seemed already dropped to the narrow frame of visual graduations of hues in skincolour on a wedding-guest, so the opinion is not one I could take as well-formed.
