My partner is pouting because I asked him to knock off the baby talk voice ...
he does every time he takes the dog out for a walk. He comes back and tries to channel the dog reporting to me whether he "went potty" or "went poopie" - - like it is a baby child.
He has kids from a previous marriage and this must be how he and his wife talked about their babies to each other.
It is annoying and I can't take it. Are we really going to have a fight about this?!!?
I tried to ask in the softest tone of voice and least aggressive way I could. He totally over reacted.

You might try talking baby talk to the dog yourself. The dog may not hate you so much. This is how your partner communicates with his dog, his dog loves it and you can't stand the competition. Get down and love on that dog.

Seriously you two are doomed because of you. He loves his dog. Notice I said "his"? He probably love it's more and it's not uncommon to talk to a baby or a dog like that. He will fall out of love with you VERY soon if he hasn't already. Start packing.

A lot of people talk to their talks in the baby talk voice lol. As long as your partner doesn't talk to you that way randomly I don't see the problem...btw how old are his kids? You don't sound like a kid-friendly gay to me

I'm with you, OP. Everybody hates baby talk, especially babies.
|by Anonymous||reply 10||11/18/2012|
I think I'm on OP's side. It's one thing to babytalk to your pet but to babytalk to someone as if you're the dog is weird.

Pets can be seen as substitute babies. Some say 4-legged companions respond better to soft, childlike voices, others claim it's a way for grown ups to "play" and relieve adult stress. Does your partner dress up like a young child for Halloween? If not then I'd just laugh at him when he talks silly.

pets are slaves made captive to fill their masters emotional holes. treating them like dolls is just diarrhea icing on shit cake.
and baby talk to an adult is only for babies. that Peter Pan is pouting and overreacted is no surprise.

Get your dildo and slap it across his face. Then say "Stop talking like a baby."

I go away with friends and their dog every so often for a weekend getaway.
Not doing it anymore.
I come home with my ears ringing of simpering baby-talk.

If he talks baby to the dog on occasion that's one thing, but if he's talking baby to you and you don't like it, it's not out of line to ask him to stop.
But since that didn't work, maybe you can drive your point home by talking in baby talk to him in situations where it embarrasses him or makes him uncomfortable.

Talking like that to a dog tells him that he's the alpha.

Yeah, keep saying that, bub. In the meantime, there's still roast chicken in the fridge that has not found its way into my bowl. I'm going to stare at you without blinking until you get up off your fat ass and remedy that. Oh, and then do something about the rain. I want to go for a walk on dry grass.

Interesting, OP, because I often feel like asking my partner to also knock it off. I don't ask him. But I wish he kept it to a minimum.

I talk crazy to my dog... he just brings it out in me. Love that fucker, he's so much fun.
That, OP, might tell you what you're up against.
I can see how it would annoy but there ain't nuthin' to do about it.

Any man talking like a Valley girl from the 1980s is also a deal breaker, an even bigger one.

I would have have punched him in the fucking mouth and baby talked back to him while he cried and bled...and I made him clean up the teeth and blood off the fucking floor. Stupid cry baby bitch. Won't talk like that again.

I have it on good authority that cats despise being baby-talked to.
I don't know how dogs feel about it, but why not treat them with dignity & respect? Same thing goes for other humans, of course, including one's partner.
