It struck me once again today just how cute animals babies are while human babies are stomach-turning ugly.
What is the evolutionary reason for human babies being so nauseatingly ugly? It's really remarkable how ugly they are. They look like angry old bald men and often have that disgusting crusty facial skin, while animal babies have that gorgeous, pristine downy fur or fluff.* It frightens me how ugly human babies are.

TBH I do not get all the hype over babies. People love them, and think they are cute. And I agree, babies can be cute sometimes. But I just don't find them as cute as other people do. Does that make me a bad person? I feel a tremendous amount of guilt for feeling that way. I'm not sure why. But I find my cats to be much cuter than babies, or other baby animals for that matter I find cuter than human babies.
I think it's just one of those things. Everyone has a preference.
I hope that when I have kids, I find babies cute. I find little kids cute, but it's when they do cute things. I'm just not a baby fanatic. I think part of that comes from me having no experience with babies. So I am a nervous wreck when people expect me to hold or do things with babies like coo over them. I just can't. I'm hoping it comes to be someday, but so far I just don't have it.
As a woman, it kind of feels odd. Like I feel like I should be an automatic expert on the whole baby thing. But I'm not.
I'm happy for people who have babies. Most of my friends are parents and they always gush about their babies. But TBH I'm not going to gush over someone's baby taking a poop. Like it's a normal thing...1
