I hate the use of babe, or baby to describe anything other than a child/pet.

Jimbo is my baby but that is because he is my pet and he LITERALLY looks up to me and needs me to feed him and care for him. He fits the term baby!

I never want my boyfriend to use that as a pet name for me. He can call me snugglebumcuddleface if he wants but under no circumstance am I his baby.
The thought of referring to him as babe as well makes me want to fold in on myself and implode. He is a man with facial hair and brute strength - babe just seems so demeaning and silly.

Honestly even hearing other people call eachother baby makes me squirm.
WHY DOES THIS BOTHER ME SO MUCH?
