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.

I'm glad no one wants to suppress my spirit like that.

Plus who the hell are you to ask a beeding man to curtail his paternal nature, you barren cow.

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 Anonymousreply 1011/18/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 1411/18/2012

I'm with you, OP. It's one thing to talk to his pet like that, it's another to talk to *you* like that.

OP, are you a woman or man?

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

This is a common problem.

Well yeah I agree, talking to the dog that way is fine, but to you? I'd be annoyed too I think.

Haha, love this. Never heard it before. May I borrow it, R14? I will need to use it at least once on Thanksgiving with my extended family.

OP, you're right and your bitchy partner is wrong.

by Anonymousreply 2211/19/2012

I agree with OP. Who wants a grown male talking to them in a baby voice? Not me.

My owner uses me to fill an emotional void caused by a strained relationship with his birth children.

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.

by Anonymousreply 2511/19/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2611/19/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2911/19/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 3011/19/2012

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.

Perhaps, but now about that annoying dropping-the-g-when-writing affectation . . .

"Partner, I will not allow you to ruin our orphan I purchased from The African Baby Catalogue with that horrid baby talk. I will be damned if I'm going to raise a 'tard. You have less that 35 days to break yourself of your habit; I paid for early Christmas delivery."

A man talking like that is a deal breaker. Gag me with a spoon.

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.

by Anonymousreply 4011/19/2012

You sound like a dick, OP.

by Anonymousreply 4111/19/2012

This may be a troll, but I have to say that I feel the same way about such phrases.

Us people who hate infantile or juvenile phrases will lose this argument every time.

This sounds like more fiction from the Galloping Gourmet.
