    Question ... whether or not you are a dog...

    "It has been shown that whether or not you are a dog says nothing about you as a human."

    Is this sentence correct and idiomatic? (I am not asking about the sense as, believe me or not, this is exactly the meaning and sense I want the sentence to convey.)

    Many thanks,
    Nyggus

    The trouble is that "dog" can be a euphemism for an ugly person, so the sentence could be misread.
