These are a pair of onesies. For infants. One reads “i’m just a cupcake looking for my stud muffin” and the other reads “girls dig chubby guys”. Heteros really need to stop trying to force their lifestyle on children.
People are really creepy about pushing heterosexuality on babies in general. Like “oh, he loves to smile at girls, he’s such a flirt” and “What a pretty little girl; your daddy is going to have to beat the boys away with a stick”
Like can you not even wait for your infants to gain control of their neck muscles before you start pushing your sexual preferences on them?
oh my gosh this this this this this
it makes me so uncomfortable
Just remove the “hetero” part and leave the “sexual”/”sexuality” ‘cause that’s the fucking creepy part. Doesn’t matter what orientation precedes it, sexual and child are not two words that should ever need to be used together.
No, stop trying to derail this and act like heterosexuality ISN’T the one sexuality that is constantly forced onto children and considered socially acceptable to do so. People say shit like “oh you’re going to have to keep the boys away from her” or “oh he’s such a ladies man” about babies ALL THE DAMN TIME. I have seen cishet adults joke about pairing up presumed-other-sex babies when they were a few days old. If you complain about the notion of presuming a child’s sexuality (even if you phrased it as ANY sexuality), you’re told to get a sense of humour. There are NO social consequences for pushing heterosexuality onto children.
You know what would happen if queer people did that? We’d be accused of child abuse, paedophilia, trying to shove “the gay agenda” down people’s throats, and bad parents/guardians.
One time when I was sixteen, I was sick of listening to my relatives ask my cousin (who was around seven or eight at the time) if lots of boys flirted with her at school. So I asked her if any girls flirted with her. My relatives were disgusted. Absolutely disgusted. “I should HOPE not!” I got filthy looks for the rest of the day. I probably wouldn’t make those comments now I’m older. Partly because “do people flirt with you” is inappropriate small talk for a child, yes, and it probably wasn’t fair to ask that just so I could try to get one over on bigoted relatives. And also because I would rather not have accusations of abuse slung at me for pointing out the hypocrisy of cisheteronormativity!
No, you shouldn’t presume a child’s sexuality or gender until you’ve been told (and then you should fucking listen to them, not dismiss them as too young to understand themselves). But let’s not pretend that cisheteronormativity and hypersexualisation of queer sexualities aren’t pervading social phenomena here. There are VERY different consequences depending on which sexualities you presume.
