the most confusing is if you call him your baby daddy
TEXT OF COMIC:
Okay, I do kind of understand the widespread distaste for the idea of calling your romantic partner “daddy.”
I really don’t see the appeal of using terms that suggest that you’re a child who’s sexually attracted to your parent.
But what I don’t understand is why we don’t see a lot of similar resistance against the idea of calling your romantic partner “baby.”
Is it so much more acceptable to use terms that suggest you’re a PARENT sexually attracted to your CHILD?
Well, I think, with the word “baby,” people’s minds are able to separate it from the sexual element, and just think of it as comparing your loved one to something cute.
Like “honey” or “sweetie pie”… you’re not saying you’re sexually attracted to actual pies or honey.
I suppose my difficulty is that I can’t imagine seeing babies as anything except vomit-inducingly hideous.
But then, that’s also how I feel about parents.
How do you deal with the fact that you are a human, when you hate all humans so much?
I don’t deal with it. I wallow in internalized misanthropy.
